John is gaining his strength back and is getting visions again and wants to see if the visions are true. I think he will go back and fight Setrakus Ra and try to save Sam. (33)
John is very mad at Nine for not telling him that they were so close to the cave and Sam. John made up his mind and is going back to save Sam and giving Nine the option to go or not. (35)
John and Nine figured out how to communicate with other members using their chests.
When John and Nine opened their chests so close to the magodorian cave, the magadorians tracked them down and now John and Nine are in trouble.
People who want to kill Vishnu and his friends are fighting with the garde. Ella has been wounded and everybody is ready to fight back. (58).
John and Nine have been attacked by humans with magodian weapons are are just waiting for the right time to attack. (74)
Six, Ella, Marina, and Crayton are making there way up a mountain to see number 8 but the commander who is taking them has already betrayed them once and doesn't answer their questions so they are getting worried and dont know what is going to happen next. (81)
To see Vishnu or number 8 they have to pass very weird tests. I think number 8 can change shapes and he is the weird creatures in the tests. (88)
John and Nine are locked up in the back of a truck. (93)
John and Nine escaped the cages using there powers and destoyed the Mog weapons and then flipped and crashed the truck.
Eight has many new powers or legacies that he is good at. Maybe some will come in handy like telaporting. (109)
Eights crown also died and he lost his chest. (116)
John is have more nightmares or visions about Setrekus Ra and Sam. I think he will wait for Six, Seven, Eight, and Ten to help him take down Setrekus Ra. (123)
Nine and John are arguing because John wants to take on Setrekus Ra and save Sam and Sarah but Nine wants to find the others then take on Setrekus Ra.
John is getting really annoyed because Nine making every decision and he not letting John do anything. I think that Nine has better plans but John needs to save his best friend and girl friend so I understand why John wants to save everybody right now. (132)
Seven found Eights chest under water in the lake. (138)
Eight is so exited that he finally found his chest that he wants to wait to leave. I think that something bad is going to happen like the mogs are going to come and their will be a war.
Setrakus Ra is taunting both Eight and John to sacrifice themselves but he is really just trying to trick them. (141)
Nine invited 2 girls to come hangout with them and John is mad because they dont know if it is a trap. (151)
Nine is going into a city with lots of people and his secret base is a whole floor of a giant hotel. John is worried because this is the thing that Henry wanted to do the opposite of. (158)
Eight said he found a lyric hideout underground that he can teleport all over the world from. Everybody else is worried because they think the Mogs would be survaling it. (165)
In the loric cave, on the walls there are weird drawings of alien stuff and carvings of loric things that are real like the ship with nine loric babies. (169-170)
The panel predicts that Eight will die but he doesn't believe it. I think he will die later on.
The mogs are at the cave and there was a big explosion. I think that the cave was under survailence by the Mogs but I think they will escape using Eights teloporting. (184)
Eight has a bad wound but seven can't seem to heal him. She is determined to do it but it's not working
Six is stuck in the middle of the dessert and has no idea where she is and where the others are and is really panicking. I think if she digs more she will find another cave and be OK. (209)
Six is losing all confidence and is getting really scared. She thinks that it is weak of her to die in the dessert when she was sent here as a warrior to save the Earth. I think she will pass out but eight will come back and save her. (214)
John lost the fight against Nine and now they have to go to paradise, ohio. I think John is Pitticus Lore but he is younger and I think his legasies havent all developed yet so he can not beat Nine yet. (223)
John is having a vision were he is fighting Mogs and Setrekus Ra. I think all of these visions will come true sooner or later. (228)
The FBI found six in the middle of the desert, they saved her. I think that she will escape once she is fully better. (240)
Nine finally realized that he and John should go to New Mexico. I think Johns eloquent persuasive talking towards Nine helped him realize that.
After Nine destroyed Stonehenge, Marina put the stone back and the guards saw it. I think that they are going to know that it is the Lorien and the Mogs are going to come. (261)
All of the soldiers working for the government have mogadorian cannons. I think that the Mogs are working with the government to capture all of the guarde. (268)
Setrekus Ra has every power that you can have, that means he can shape shift into other people. So, he can trick Jon just like he tricked Six. I think that when John comes, he will see two Sara's and and pick the wrong one. (295)
John, Ella, and six now have the legacy of talking to each other through their heads. I think this will come in handy because now they can communicate whenever they want. (306)
The FED is getting as bad as the mogs, they keep attacking. I think that make it much harder for the guarde to survive. (311)
Six is frustrated because she is the only one fighting Setrekus Ra and it is supposed to be all 7 of them. I think she will find a way to ensape and the others will help fight. (324)
Setrekus Ra was just toying with Six, he knew she had no chance. Now he is going to fake being six to go to the others and he will leave six as a rock. I think six will kill herself so Setrekus Ra's identity will be visible.
Setrekus Ra just tricked everybody into thinking he was Six and took away everybody's powers. I think that five will come in and save them but someone will die. (143)
Their legacies came back, now I think that Setrekus Ra will run away because he will be losing. (353)
John was able to heel Sarah and Ella just by thinking about it. I think that only putticus lore can do that and Setrekus Ra will be surprised and killed in their next battle. (357)
I think John is very brave by going to the Mogadorian base to face the most powerful person in the galaxy to save Sam. But, he is risking a lot because there is a big chance he will die, be tortured, or be forced to tell where the other Garde are if he fails (35).
I think it is really cool how the most powerfull person on Lorien is named Pittacus Lore. This is cool because Pittacus Lore is the author of the I am Number Four series. I think he put himself as the most powerful person on Lorien because he wanted himself to be supreme to everyone. Plus, to maybe say that he is the most powerful writer on Earth, in an indirect way (11).
I love how the author writes in first person because it shows the character's thoughts, ideas, and emotions he or she is feeling without saying it out loud. I also love how the author writes first in first person in the point of view of three different characters. It switches every chapter and you can tell because the font is different (22-41).
I think that John is very craggy because he is always in and out of consciousness, hallucinating, and he can barely stand up (14).
I think Crayton has an aversion of killing because he said that he would love to run away from the people who are hunting them then to have to fight those people (62).
I think Six is in trouble because she skittered away from the car as she heard gunshots being fired near her (63).
I think John laments leaving Sam in the Mogadorian Cave because he is always asking Nine to go back for Sam. Plus, he had a vision and he saw Sam being tortured by Mogadorians.
Sorry, I forgot the page number: (18-21)
I think it is really cool what John has in his Chest because he has this 3-D solar system that orbits around his hand and it can also morph into a huge Earth and show you where the other members of the Garde are on Earth (48-52).
I think John cares about Sam because he tried to cajole Nine into going to the Mogadorian Base to save Sam (28-31).
I think Six, Ella, Marina, and Crayton trust Lord Vishnu because they confided in him and told him who they are and why they are here (105-108).
I think Lord Vishnu is not glib because when he talks, it is with passion and emotion (105-110).
Nine is very astute because he made fun of the people who captured them and he got them distracted so Nine and John can escape (92-98).
Nine is very baleful because he told the people who captured him that they are lucky him and John are not attacking. This is because if they were attacking, they would kill those people with ease (75).
I think Marina is very verklempt because her crush kissed her (139).
I think Eight's hut will hold up well against the weather because it is supported by stanchions that help the hut hold its ground (145).
John is always having conflicts with Nine. For an example, Nine took John to Chicago because that is where his safe house is and John got mad at him because it is in a densely populated area. Plus, if Henri was there he would not allow this (152-156).
I think Eight would be a great raconteur because he told the story of how his Cepan died with passion and emotion that keeps the listener interested (112-115).
I think the moods of the book so far have been hopeful and hopeless because you gain hope when John and his friends are defeating their enemies, training to get stronger, and finding other members of the Garde. But, you feel hopeless when people die, get injured, get captured, and fight among each other (1-167).
My theory after reading the first three books in the Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore, is the true powers of the Heros in the Lorien Legacies is not their powers but their persistence. Nine guarde or kids from the planet Lorien came to Earth with their CEpans or guardians because the Mogadorians attacked their planet and they had to make sure the Lorien survived to repopulate their planet. But the Mogadorians chased them to Earth and now three are dead and the rest are on the run killing off the Mogs. Now since they are all together they are going after the Mogs and trying to kill Setrekus Ra, the Mogadorian leader. If any of them get into fights with the Mogadorians and they are weak and powerless, they will never give up. That makes them such good warriors.
There are many examples of this throughout the first three books that I read.One example in the third book in the series, The Rise Of Nine, is that Six is taking on Setrekus Ra and Setrekus Ra has taken away her powers so she can only fight hand to hand combat, (320). Setrekus Ra is just toying with her because he has every single power or legacy that you can have but Six still tries to fight back to save Lorien and Earth. Even though she felt very vexed because she had no powers, she still fought until she couldn't move anymore.
If she just quit, it would have made Setrekus Ra’s job much easier. Setrekus Ra only appears in the third book so there aren't as many examples of them being powerless and still fight but there are other examples. At the end of the First book, I am number four, there was a huge war and there were only five people on their side fighting. TWo of them were guade, four and six, one was fours cepan, and there were two normal kids from their school. They were fighting against hundreds of scouts (the weakest of the Mogadorians), hundreds of soldiers (big Mogadorians who are very powerful), and a lot of beasts (40-100 foot tall monsters who destroy everything and are pretty much impossible to kill and some giant birds that are very fast and dangerous and are also very hard to kill). They knew that the numbers weren't even close and odds were that they would lose, but that didn't discourage them, it seemed to make them stronger and have more confidence and fight with more heart and make them more jaunty. Also, they are not very magnanimous because they do not give mercy to the Mogadorians. If one of them dies, they
I think that this makes the series of books much more interesting and fun to read. when you are reading about a fight with Mogadorians and one of the guarde you don't want to stop reading because you want to see what they will do next. Without the persistence that these characters have, they would have never made it this far.
I feel bad for Six because she is alone in New Mexico in a desert that is deserted. Also, she has no food and water (214-215)
I think it is cool that the author made only one person who teleported go in a different place. If Six, Eight, Ella, and Marina teleported successfully and they were all together, everything would be fine and there wouldn't be a twist. Plus, if two people teleported somewhere else, both of the groups would have two people. Since only one person is alone and everyone else is together it is more interesting because Six has to survive on her own and find the others while the other three are together and have each others backs (218).
I think Nine is beginning to become friend to John he told John he is sorry that he is mean and annoying all the time and John knew Nine meant it and he forgave him (224-225).
I think the mood is becoming more hopeful because Nine and John are going to New Mexico to get their ship. Plus, Six is there but she is captured by the F.B.I. and they need to save her. Additionally, Eight, Marina, and Ella know that Six is on trouble and also going to New Mexico to get her out (223-262).
I think it is very cool that the author is using dramatic irony. He made one person got separated from everyone else when they teleported and the person who is alone thinks the other people are scared and do not know where she is. But, that is not the case. They know where she is and they are coming for her (264).
I like how nine shows that he actually does care about humans even though he tries to act all tough and does not give a damn about anything page 292
I am really in awe at how these kids are taking on a giant army and are not backing down. Heck even Sarah who is not a Lorien and knows this is not her fight is still helping pages 327-360
I find it very cool that nine realize that he should he have listened to john in the first place. This is very good character development for nine because when the story began he was kind of a total jerk. The pages are
Six is very gallant because she is trying to break out of a U.S. military base while she is nauseous and dehydrated (264).
I can't believe Nine is a humanitarian even though he is stubborn and care-free (292).
Nine, Four, Ten, Seven, and Eight are very determined to get to Six because they are going through Mogadorians and the F.B.I. at the same time (317-318).
Six is very determined because she doesn't seem to feel the pain if someone hits her and she doesn't even notice the huge Mogadorian monsters, she is so determined to kill Setrakus Ra that she kills them instantly (320).
I think Six and Sarah are very groggy because they were beaten, weak, and dehydrated (300).
I like how Pittacus Lore makes ambiguity. When a new chapter starts, the font changes so you know who is talking. Pitttacus Lore didn't directly say who is narrating each chapter so you had to figure it out in the beginning. I think this is very cool (1-325).
I think that it is very cool that Four, Seven, Nine, Eight, and Ten are working together to fight a huge Mogadorian army confidently even thought they are outnumbered badly (334-346).
I think that the mood of the book is now hopeless. This is because Six got turned into rock, Eight is injured and at a high risk of dying, Nine and Marina are fighting Setrakus Ra without their powers and John and Ella are trying to heal Eight but they need their powers to do so (320-346).
I think Six finally has hope of breaking out of her rock prison because she saw Nine break out of his. I predict she will break out of her rock prison (350).
I think Ella saved everyone because everyone was dying, hurt, and needed help so Ella shot a red pin at Setrakus Ra allowing everyone's powers to return (351).
I think everyone is afraid and not ready to fight Setrakus Ra because now they know he can take away their powers (350).
I think SIx, Nine, Ella, Eight, Marina and John have some confidence now because they know that they can face Setrakus Ra with their powers because of what Ella did (352-353).
Pittacus Lore is the author of the I am number four series. The author makes itself part of the book. It does this by saying that they are Lorien's ruling elder and the last person that survived on Lorien.
"His voice is husky, but also kind. I can't help but notie his eyes are the most amazing shade of green. By the look on Marina's face, she is noticing all of this too...'So you can teleport?' Marina asks. 'That is very cool.' He suddenly appears at her side and casually leans an arm around her shoulder. Marina giggles and shrugs him off." (109)
I think Marina is going to fall in love with number eight because this is the first boy that she has actually been attracted to and this is how a girl acts when she has a crush on someone.
the mood of this part of the book is joy because Marina, Ella, Six, and Crayton has just found number eight, whom they have been searching for a long time to find. (110)
John is dealing with an internal conflict: man vs. self. He is fighting with himself to run back to the mogadorian lair and get Sam back (even though John will definitely day and there is a big chance that Sam is dead already) or run with nine to find the rest of the Garde so they can all train together and defeat Setrakus Ra, who is the ruler of the mogadorians. (89)
I don't like how the author made almost everyone's cepans die except for Ella's because that just means that there are less and less Lorien's left and if they are able to make it back to the planet Lorien, they will barely half a portion of a civilization. (118)
I think Setrakus Ra is actually somehow able to control the Gardes dreams because he was trying to force John to give up his pendant and for a second the pendant was in Ra's hands. Luckily, John realized what was going on and took his pendant back. (124)
"The U.S. government and the Mogadorians have teamed up! For them, it's official: we are the bad guys." (126) I think when the Garde goes to try and kill Setrakus Ra, the U.S. government are going to try and stop them from getting close and kill them.
The connotation of the word "train" is strength, power, and workout.
The donotation of the word train is to teach (a person or animal) a particular skill or type of behavior through practice and instruction over a period of time. (174)
I think that John will develop a legacy of shortly seeing into the future because he attacks the rubber mogadorian before he fully knows what it is (181).
I predict that the other boy in Four's dream is Eight "He's been visiting me in my dreams...Suddenly, the tan, thin boy is who appeared in my last vision is next to me...he's wearing a loric pendant"
Why is eight so relaxed? He should be training with the others now that Setrakus Ra is on earth. But he is going for morning swims and relaxing
Is Eight the one who dies? "We're all going to die some day Mariana eight says in a strange voice"
I realized that Eight is so relaxed because in the picture that has been very accurate so far says that he will die. He may have been trying to evade reality.
I think that Mariana is the one in new Mexico because she was the only one who wasn't holding on to eight directly.
I think Ella has developed a new legacy because six thinks she hears Ella. Then Ella says Six is in trouble and she's in the desert
I realized that Five is dead because another scar burned on four's ankle and everyone else is alive.
I wonder where Setrakus Ra and all other of the Mogadorians are because they all disappeared with an explosion and there is no ash of the dead Mogadorians
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
