The Rise of Nine is an amazing book! It is now one of my most favorite read. It's part of the loreien legices, other books in the loreien legices are: I Am Number Four (1st book) The Power of Six (2nd book) and now The Rise of Nine (3rd book). The Rise of Nine is about some aliens that loose there planet and come to earth to save earth and go back to there planet and try to save it. A good of aliens ( mogadoriens) try to stop them. It is an action pact book with lots of suspense. I couldn't put the book down once I opened it. I loved it and I hope that you read it and love it as much as I do.
