I Am Number Four: Dave’s Book Review 4

Synopsis: A group of children escape to earth when their planet is destroyed. And now they are being hunted down by the same aliens who destroyed their home. They also suspect that these beings also want to destroy earth. They have special powers and abilities to protect themselves. And the story mostly follows a boy named Jon Smith who is next in line to be killed because three are dead and he is number four. The children can only be killed in order. So, he has to deal with his emerging powers, defend himself from high school bullies, try not to fall in love, stay alive, and ultimately find the other kids from his planet so they can save earth.

My Thoughts: I saw the movie before reading the book. They were both good, but the book is definitely better (or maybe I’m just biased). It’s told mostly in the first person from Jon’s point of view. It moved along at a fairly good pace. It felt liked it slowed down quiet a bit in the middle. But not enough to make me put down the book. Overall it was a fast, fun read that threw me right back into my younger years and made me feel like a kid all over again.

Rating: 4/5

Read A Free Sample of The Rule of One

Synopsis:
In a not-so distant future, families are only allowed to have one child. But the Director of Family Planning has twins, and he is forced to raise them in secret. Each day, one of the daughters comes out of the basement to live life. But they get busted, and the girls have to flee for their lives. That starts their journey of trying to find their way across the country through safehouses while trying to survive. They get help along the way, but in the end, have very opposing views about what they need to do to save their father (Ava wants to escape and help the rebels while Mira wants to return home to rescue her father there). General Roth has everyone looking for them and the girls are in danger of getting caught right up until the very end. So, their goal is to try to escape his clutches.

The story does have a decent conclusion and the girls do achieve their objective. Although, there are several loose ends left for the continuation of the story in Book 2.

Thoughts:
I liked this book. It was captivating and interesting.

  • POV: Written in the first person and in the present tense from the perspective of two different people
  • Written about teens who are finishing high school but seems like it’s geared more toward adults
  • Interesting read and keeps you engaged from beginning to end. There are some emotional and touching parts woven into the book
  • There isn’t a whole lot. It seemed pretty plausible for the world it is set in, however, the way the scene played out with Halton in the end didn’t make much sense. [SPOILER ALERT] How did he catch them? We didn’t even know he was in the army. Why was he all alone with Ava in the woods? And why in the world did Hayden kill him? It just didn’t make much sense to me. Maybe I need to go back and reread it.

The Rule of One: Some of My Favorite Quotes:

“We eventually learned to stop asking. In grief all the little flaws of those we loved are colored over.”

“But it’s my father’s eyes that tell me of his torture. The way they stare blankly before him, focusing on nothing. Empty, like no one is behind them.”

“An eruption of barking and shouting cuts through Rayla’s words—cuts through everything—and suddenly the car rocks with furious paws scratching to get inside. After two heart-crushing blows, the trunk flies open—and the facial recognition cameras instantly recognize Ava Goodwin’s wanted face. Twofold.”

“In Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. One soul in two bodies. These beings had great strength in this form, and the gods, fearing their power, sent Zeus to divide them into two separate parts, splitting apart the soul. Weakened and consumed with yearning, humans were condemned to spend their lives in search of their other halves in order to feel complete. I was born with my soulmate. One soul in two bodies. I didn’t have to search the whole world over. But now mine is gone. Mine turned and walked away from me.”

“Revive the rebellion,” Ava tells our country, echoing Father’s appeal. “And the Common will rise.”

Edge 4 – Roar!

Roar! is Book 4 in the Edge of the Universe series. It’s ready to read and up for pre-order on Amazon.

Here’s what it’s about…

After meeting the clone maker and realizing the trouble the scientist has gotten himself into, Art realizes that he needs to find a good lawyer of his own to create a few legal loopholes of his own and leave himself a way out if Tony plans on using his DNA-splicing technology for something evil.

Tony has been hounding Art to sign the contract even before his time was up and Art has a sneaking suspicion that something is up. He just doesn’t know what it is yet.

Art and Bill find a way to sneak into Blue Wolf’s lair even though LocTech spies are watching them. There they learn about an old enemy Tony once made, known as the Rain Maker, who may be able to help Art create the legal loopholes that he needs.

Episode 3 – Rush!

It’s called Rush!

What is Rush about?

While his new home is being renovated and his team transferred to Brimhill, Art is getting settled into his new billionaire lifestyle. He is actively looking into LocTech to make sure everything is okay before signing his final contract.

Tony pressures him into come in a day early which he finds strange. But before he can sign it, he gets really sick.
Art meets Dr. Mark Bates, who everyone thought was killed in the Blue Wolf sabotage and is told that the same sickness the clones died from may have mutated and passed on to him.

He must do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of what’s really going on at LocTech and Sector Seven because he knows they aren’t being completely honest while trying to find his way through all the different groups who oppose what LocTech is doing…and ultimately stand against what Art is doing there.
