|The Lost Files: The Fallen Legacies|
(The Lost Files #1)
by Pittacus Lore
Summary from Goodreads:
"Before Number Four, there were One, Two, and Three. Until now we've only known that the Mogadorians caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. But all of that is about to change. . . .
In I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: The Fallen Legacies, you'll learn the true story behind these ill-fated members of the Garde. Before they were murdered by the Mogadorians, before Number Four was next, they were all just kids on an alien planet called Earth—discovering their powers, trying to stay hidden, and running for their lives."
If you are one of the readers who have been following this series, then I strongly recommend you to read The Lost Files: The Fallen Legacies. It’s packed with a surprise that would make you want to read more of.
The Lost Files: The Fallen Legacies is shown in the point-of-view of a young Mogadorian, named Adamus. Yes, you read that right; it’s from a Mog’s perspective! Wow, I was completely caught of guard about that. From the previous books of the Lorien Legacies, we learned that the Mogs are the bad guys and the Lorien Gardes are always on the run because these aliens are hunting them down. Also from the previous books, the only features we know of the Mogadorians is that they are hideous, and you can tell they are not human. Well apparently not all of them are, but you’ll have to see why and how that is for yourself.
Anyway, Adam (short for Adamus) is the son of the General of the Mogadorians. He is of course keen on destroying the Gardes, and he can’t wait to claim a land he wants on Earth when they finally seize it as their own. That is until they finally caught up with Number One…
Although we find ourselves reading about how One, Two and Three died, this book also shows us the Mogs’ way of living and the kind of technology they have at hand. All this is very interesting, and I for one would love to know more about it.
Truly villains aren’t always what they seem, and Adam shows a different side of the story. I hope he makes an appearance in the next books to come.
