Book 1, Lorien Legacies - (Lorien Legacies Book 1)

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


They killed Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.

John Smith is not your average teenager.

He regularly moves from small town to small town. He changes his name and identity. He does not put down roots. He cannot tell anyone who or what he really is. If he stops moving those who hunt him will find and kill him.

But you can't run forever.

So when he stops in Paradise, Ohio, John decides to try and settle down. To fit in. And for the first time he makes some real friends. People he cares about - and who care about him. Never in John's short life has there been space for friendship, or even love.

But it's just a matter of time before John's secret is revealed.

He was once one of nine. Three of them have been killed.

John is Number Four. He knows that he is next . . .

From Publishers Weekly

19 July 2010 – In this action-packed but formulaic novel, first in the Lorien Legacies series, John Smith appears to be a normal American teenager, living in Ohio with his father, attending high school, and falling for a local girl. But he's really something much cooler: an alien from the planet Lorien, and one of the last survivors of a race that was nearly wiped out by its enemies. And now the evil Mogadorians have traveled to Earth looking for survivors, with an eye toward wiping out this planet as well. John is destined to fight them, but will his superpowers manifest before it's too late? Lore (a Loric elder in the book, and a pseudonym for writer James Frey and a coauthor) provides a fast-moving plot and some genuinely creepy bad guys, though the basic premise is clich d and the science won't pass muster with diehard SF fans. However, a Michael Bay produced movie is planned for 2011, and for those looking for an undemanding, popcorn-ready read, this "guy okay, alien gets the girl and saves the world" adventure should do the trick. Ages 14 up.

Customer Reviews

Gripping but not quite incredible...

This book is in all a very good read and an enthralling start to what is set to be a six book series. However, my problem with it is the way it is written. You get used to it and reading the sample will tell you if it's your cup of tea, but it appears to be written ready to be converted into a screenplay. Considering the movie is out in February 2011, that's not actually unlikely! So, a good start but only time will tell!

Decent start to 6 part story

It's seems all the rage to find the next Harry potter or twilight book series. This is no Harry potter but is a damn sight better than twilight. The fact that speilberg's production team bought the film rights before it was even published proves it further. A good easy read, with endearing characters and plot.


I picked this up in tesco in the charts section, intrigued by the cover but you know what they say about judging and covers. This book is a simple, almost patronising read. The writing feels basic as though the author couldn't really be bothered. The pace does pick up in the last 1/5 of the book but don't read this if your expecting anything close to twilight (which isn't saying a lot)
