They are very good people and it can be fun have super powers The book is told by various members of the Garde: Number Four (John Smith), who is on the run with Sam, Six, and Bernie Kosar (aka Hadley, a Lorien Chimæra), and Number Seven (Marina), who's hiding at Santa Teresa, a convent in Spain. While John, Number Six and Sam try to stay ahead of the Mogadorians while searching for the other surviving Loric, Number Seven searches for news of John after his heroic battle at the school that came at the end of I Am Number Four. During the battle between seven (Marina) and the mogadorians it is revealed that Ella is a member of the Garde.Maren Elizabeth)and number 9Read more >
There are a lot of discrepancies in this series, and it saddens me every time I see one. Here's a list of all of them I could find (some of them I borrowed from the Timeline page):
- After Power of Six, the Mogadorian weapons were depicted in a completely different manner. In the first two books it felt more fanciful than science fiction, with the "dome" the Mogs made in Paradise, the blasters sucking life out of plants, the twisting daggers, etc. These were all dropped after Power of Six to make them more sci-fi, I guess.
- While mentioned in Power of Six that the date of Henri's imprisonment in Athens, Ohio is January 19, it is not possible as this event takes place during Thanksgiving in the first novel.
- Six is underpowered later in the series…
Since nobody has entered in a summary for United As One on the page, here's something I will give the admins so they can add it (SPOILERS AHEAD! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!) The book starts with a prologue, which is a dream constructed by Setrákus Ra. The first one is of Marina seeing Setrákus Ra disguised as Eight, and after being rejected by Marina, he tells her that all that will come to her is pain. The second is of Five, who is in a cell, seeing Setrákus Ra offering him a second chance for the Mogadorians, which Five quickly rejects. The third is of Mark James, with Setrákus Ra telling him that he's sorry for Sarah's death, but he can bring her back, only if Mark will help him.
Number Four's narration opens up at least a day after Sarah Hart'…Read more >
The title says it all.
Here's my guess of what will happen:
It should take place 5 years after United As One (matching the release date).
- The Human-Garde at the Academy, possibly Walker too, will be the narrators and the primary focus of the novels. Nigel, Ran, Caleb and/or some new Human-Garde characters will be the narrators (I don't see Daniela getting a narration; she already had one)
- Nine and Lexa will have big roles for sure (cause they're training them at the academy), but will not be the main characters.
- Adam, Rex, Sam, Six, and Malcolm could have semi-major roles. I don't see them having narrations.
- Ella and Number Five will likely have more minor roles, but I'm sure they will still be in it.
- I don't know where I see John and Marina. A…
I think that what will happen in Generation one is the military doing a mogadorian role call and when Zakos's name gets called he doesn't respond to the call. The military doesn't find him and they start a manhunt but still no luck. Zakos then manages to get a boat out of the Alaskan mog camp and then goes to Fiji since it doesn't have much population and it's remote. Then it switches to San Francisco where Proffessor Nine and his students go to to search for Zakos. Meanwhile Zakos is making vatborn Mogadorian.First Nine goes to Alaska to get Adam and Rex to help out. Then they go to Russia, Indonesia, Australia and then to Fiji when they find vatborn Mogadorians and have a battle with them. This allows Zakos to escape to Melbourne, Austra…Read more >
A sample for United As One is available on iBooks. Here's my summary of it:
The book is narrated by John and Six. It starts with a prologue that I think is a dream constructed by Setrákus Ra. The first one is of Marina seeing Setrákus disguised as Eight, and Ra tells her that all that will come to her is pain. The second is of Five, who is in a cell, seeing Setrákus Ra offering Five a second chance for the Mogadorians. The third is of Mark James, with Setrákus Ra telling him that he's sorry for Sarah's death, but he can bring her back, only if Mark joins Ra.

I have been planning on merging this wikia and The Lorien Legacies Wikia for a long time and am only finally getting around to it. The first step was adopting the wikia, and the second step was discussing the merger with the users of the respective sites.
I am in discussions with a user I refer to as 'Aura' who I put in charge of the wikia so that it didn't go to hell while I studied for my final year of Law school and he seems pretty keen on the idea too.
Before we go ahead however, it's only right and fair that we hear from the users first so I'm offering you the opportunity to have your say. I think it would be great to have the entire fandom in one place, however compromises will have to be made, integrating the good po…Read more >

Get ready for the seventh and final book in the I Am Number Four series:
The Garde didn’t start this war, but they’ll do whatever it takes to end it once and for all...
The Mogadorians have invaded Earth. Their warships loom over our most populated cities and no country will risk taking them head on. The Garde are all that stand in the way, but they’ll need an army of their own to win this fight.
The Garde have teamed up with the U.S. military, but it might not be enough. They need reinforcements, and they’ve found them in the most unexpected place. Teenagers from across the globe, like John Smith’s best friend, Sam, have developed abilities. So John and the others must get to them before the Mogs, because if they don’t their enemies will use…Read more >
From the books, to the offical website, to the novella, to the transmissions, and everything else, this series has a strange mysterious factor that's starting to get to me. I can't put a finger on it. I feel as if there's one big secret or a bunch of secrets that aare going to be revealed over the next novellas and book that's just, BAM!everything revealed...
Also, I wonder if there will be anymore PL transmissions? Anything can happen, right?
What do y'all think?Read more >
I am a huge fan of the I am Number Four series. This caused me to search for the planet Lorien. In my search I found the planet. I looks just the way it was discribed in the book. The aftermath of the Lorien-Mogaidorian war of the planet is known as Mars. They both have 2 moons and as John (Number Four) discribed it in the book, A red dusty planet. Mars is only a year away making the spaceships time between planets correct. Mars even has a longer year than Earth, just it is said in the book. Not only that but now sciencists believe that Mar use to hold life before something broke through its atmosphere. What the sciencists believe an artrode broke the atmosphere could actally be the resolte for the Lorien-Mogadorina war. This is just my th…Read more >

If you hadn't noticed, THE SEVENTH BOOK TITLE AND COVER HAVE BEEN REVEALED RECENTLY!!! I would have responded earlier, but I was off writing my fanfic (which I have to hurry up and finish so I can get the final chapter out before United As One is released in June). And if you didn't notice this, the cover has another element on it:
So what do you guys think it means? I assumed it had something to do with Marina, but we already have The Power of Six to represent her.
In I Am Number Four, the cover had what looked like Fire on it, which I realized represented John's Lumen. And after that, we had Water on the cover of The Power of Six, and I'm pretty sure that either represented Marina's name, meaning "of the sea," or maybe it connected to …Read more >
I've been thinking a lot about how the war between the Loric and Mogadorians will be recorded in history among their people. Obviously, we probably won't see this happen, but the Garde have never given the war a name. I'm not talking about the First Great Expansion, like the Mogadorians called the attack on Lorien, or the the conflict the Loric had on Mogadore. I mean the current war: it doesn't have a name.
It probably doesn't need one, but I realized we only call the war by different eras. The Loric Rebellion sounds cool, but I was thinking of something more powerful. I thought about calling it the Legacy War. This doesn't relate to the powers the Garde have. The Loric entity that resides in every planet (except Mogadore) is what the name …Read more >
WARNING! MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT READ THE FATE OF TEN!
So, I've been doing a lot of thinking about what Celwe said to Pittacus in The Fate of Ten:
"'I know I am old to be a mother,' Celwe replies, a distant look in her eyes. 'Fertility is Setrákus Ra's specialty now. Fertility and genetics, to help uplift the Mogadorians. They call him the Beloved Leader.' She scoffs at this, shaking her head. 'Yet he wouldn't see his only child raised among them. So here we are.'"
It made me think of Ivan, Adam's old friend from The Fallen Legacies. Apparently, his family claimed a distant relation to Setrákus Ra, hence his hyphenated surname "Shu-Ra." He even shares similar appearance to how Setrákus looked as a teenager in The Fallen Le…Read more >
Ok, this is going to be long. Here are my problems and positives with the series, book by book (will not include the lost files, that will take too long):
- Several parts are kinda boring
- Too many plot conveniences in the final battle
- Sarah, Sam, and Mark are cliched characters.
- Incredibly well written, it gives Enders Game a run for it's money
- The Final battle is very awesome. Not much else to say but that.
- Henri. This character was done perfectly!!!!
- The story is not only suspenseful and engaging, but a lot of elements are really creative!
- Despite Sarah, Mark, and Sam's character types being done a million times, they're still enjoyable. In fact, the main thing I like is that, due to the way the stor…Read more >
I know I posted this in the Power of Six film page, but I feel as if this should get across.
If the series is atcually rebooted, I'd suggest this:
1. Change Henri's Death scene. Make it like the book, both when and how it happened.
2. Triple the number of Mogs at least (I know there were more than that, but there have to be limitations with actors).
3. Correct the Legacies given to John and Six.
4. Change Sam's and Six's appearance, backstories, and names (why was Sam's last name changed in the movie anyway? that felt pointless).
5. Change BK's appearance as the monster. I liked the book dragon much better.
6. Change the size of the Piken. Make sure they don't fly.
7. Add Krauls.
8. Make the Loric not turn to ash when they die. That will serio…Read more >
So, I'd just like to start off by saying I really enjoyed The Fate of Ten, and I thought it was the best book of the series. But some parts of the story remain unanswered. This is not a major question, but I'd like a confirmation on Lumen.
When the story begins back when John first develops it, we assume it is the Loric power for Manipulation of Fire, or pyrokinesis, as I'm sure many of you know it. When I read The Last Days of Lorien, I thought that Devektra had Lumen, and that's why she could manipulate light. And yet at the same time, when Sandor mentions one of the kids back at the academy burning down the school, I thought he meant the kid had Lumen, and just developed it on a more powerful scale since they were on Lorien (the developm…Read more >

The collection/bind-up Hidden Enemy was released yesterday, containing novellas #10-12, the Fugitive, the Navigator and the Guard. Featuring Mark James and Lexa. I've been waiting for the collection instead of buying the books separately. I am really excited to start reading them.Read more >
I just want to know what Five's twist is, and what happens to Ella. Mainly. After getting the book, I'll skip right to the end just to see how it turns out.Read more >
So I've been thinking about Setrakus Ra lately. So there are other people like Ivan's family who have the last name Ra and claim to be related to him, right? That means he had children with a Mogadorian girl thus making some Mogadorians part Loric. Does this mean Phiri and Ivan are part Loric? And if this is a expanding line,does that mean some Mogs can get Legacies? Tell me what you think.Read more >
There's a rumor going around that there will be something crucial happening involving Five in The Fate of Ten. I'm constantly wondering what this twist is, but only have this theory that Emma is still alive and Five will meet her again.Read more >
Is this bad? I don't like Nine's character. He is too hypocritical, among other things.Read more >
I'm going to start listing every error I can think of in this series, since it has plenty of them.
1. What really happened when the Loric Nine boarded their spaceship? In I Am Number four, John has visions of his grandparents saying goodbye to him. In Last Days of Lorien, Sandor doesn't see John's grandparents and the Garde were just standing near the ship-not running for it like the lost files and main books made it seem.
2. In Adam's first lost files, he sees a memory of One. In the memory, he sees Nine, a blond girl younger than One, and John's dad fighting a Piken and blasting blue cobalt energy into its face-Lumen?. In Last Days of Lorien, Sandor doesn't see any of this happening. He says the Garde ranged from infancy to six years old-t…Read more >
What do you think about Five? I was looking at the comments on his character page and well..yikes. People hate him and people love him. Do you want to strangle Five or hug him or congratulate him of his awesomeness or drop him in a pile of lava or slap him?Read more >
This isn't my theory but the user known as Inner Hate.
Inner Hate says:
I have a theory about about Mark's mom. What it Marks mother is a Mogadorian or working with them? It is said that she becomes "weird and distant after the house fire" in "I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Return To Paradise." She could've seen the video of Four flying out of the house saving the dogs and Sarah, and told the Mogs about it. Just an ideaRead more >
Is it because of the sappy love story thing? It worked fine in Twilight(I hate that book series by the way)Read more >
Is anyone else kind of disappointed that Six and John didn't get together?Read more >
What will happen in Fate of Ten?
I'm not sure if the title is supposed to be on Setrakus Ra, Ella, or what some people say the Ten that was mentioned in Henri's list.
I think...(based on what I've read/heard)
- There's going to be a human Garde member (besides Sam) that has not been mentioned in the series.
- Eight isn't coming back. The body is gone, so where would the soul go?
- Nine will probably hook up with the new Garde member or Seven.
- Ella will escape eventually from Setrakus Ra's control.
Tell me what you will think what will happen!Read more >
A lot of people love The Navigator. Me? I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, it really does a good job with Lorien and showing the trauma that they went through on Earth really well, better than Last Days of Lorien even. And it did a great job explaining the reason for the second loric ship, and answered a lot of questions. However, it is sooooooo boring most of the time, and the parts that are meant to be sad are a little over the top sad.
Overall, I put it into the "Ok" category. 7/10. I'm looking forward to The Guard though.
Also, Legacies Reborn is gonna have a sneek peek tomorrow (why we're not getting a The Guard sneek peek or even a Fate of Ten sneek peek, idk)! Sadly, I'm not interested in buying Endgame, and I would be totally co…Read more >

The Garde that had the unfortunate luck of dying on Earth should be rewarded for their sacrifice by the Lorien entity. I really hope that the Lorien entity brings the fallen Garde back to life. Or, since time travel is theoretically possible, sends someone back to alter history and save the world.Read more >
Here is my suggested reading order of the series:
I am Number Four
The Power of Six
The Last Days of Lorien*
The Fallen Legacies*
Return to Paradise
The Rise of Nine
The Guard (This one will change depending on when it actually takes place)
The Search For Sam
Read chapters 8-14 of The Fall of Five (skip the rest)
The Forgotten Ones
Read chapters 30-37 of The Fall of Five (skip the rest)
The Revenge of Seven
The Fate of Ten
(I do not have Six's Legacy on here, and that is due to the fact that A. it's too depressing, and B, the novella is already summarized in great detail in book 2, so the entire thing is uneccessary. do not read Six's Legacy. I also think the rest of Fall of Five is not …

The Fate of Ten!!! I'm pretty sure all real Lorien Legacies fans are super excited for the release of book six! The release date is September 1st, 2015. It is unknown if the title is referring to Ella or Setrakus Ra*It could also be referring to the six Garde, Sam, Sarah, Mark, and Lexa. Since Lorien's gifts had spread through the Earth, the humans I mentioned could gain legacies equaling ten Garde.
- Since Setrakus Ra is the tenth elder of Lorien.
Here are some predictions I have for the remainder of the series:
The Navigator Predictions:
1. Lexa will be revealed to be a Cêpan and a Pilot of the second loric ship, along with her friend, Devdan.
2. The setting will be her backstory, whenever and however she got to Earth continuing to how she became GUARD and such. The ship she has with her is the first Loric Ship. She obtained it in New Mexico after she handed Mark the care package.
3. Lexa will not be alone. She is forming a resistance of the last Loric Cêpans. She will be with the male Cêpan Pilot of the first Loric Ship (unless he's dead) and possiby the other Cêpan from the second ship (I'm betting he is Devdan, unless he's dead too). Whether or not any of these Cêpans will die in th…Read more >

I just read the latest novella about further Mark James' jurney. It was much more readable than "Return to Paradise" (which I really hate and consider as a boring as hell couse it has little importance to whole plot).
I like the transformation that was made for this character, from douche in first book to true super-hero and loyal friend to Loric. First I assume that his character wasnt important and necessary, but now I don't think that way anymore!
It's nice that authors and ghost-writers can add his character to main plot and make it reasonable. He is like one-more-surprise after Adam and his change to Loric cause. I didnt notice any plot-hole or mistakes in relation to the events described in 3rd, 4th and 5th book (not the …Read more >
Here are my favorite book segments of the series, catagorized from favorite to least favorite, followed by a ranking (note: I am taking into account what my personal opinions are on not just the story, but also likeability and development of the characters and quality of the writing):

- The Power Of Six- 8.8/10
- The Fallen Legacies- 8.8/10
- The Revenge Of Seven- 8.5/10
- The Rise Of Nine- 8/10

- The Fall Of Five- 5.5/10
I was devastated in The Fall of Five when 8 died. And then in The Revenge of Seven where 7 and 8 kissed and 8 disintegrated, I started crying. I was just staring at my bookshelf and realized the books 1-5 of the Lorien Legacies contain numbers 4,5,6,7, and 9. I am Number Four, The Power of Six, The Rise of Nine, The Fall of Five, The Revenge of Seven. I’ve always shipped 7 & 8 and I was thinking that since all the other Gardes who were alive in I Am Number Four had their names in the titles that maybe the title of book 6 in the Lorien Legacies- that comes out next year- could have 8 in the title. I hope it does!Read more >
I have been a huge fan of the I Am Number Four series ever since i picked up the first book. I have been so busy with college lately that i only just now finished reading "The Revenge of Seven" yesterday and have since been surfing the internet looking for any talk or discussion from the author "Pittacus Lore" (James Frey) about the upcoming book or any advancements he's made in writing the next book. I noticed that he is not very interactive with his fanbase and it bothers me that i can not find a way of contacting him. Does anyone know an email address that you can send fan mail to or an address you can send fan mail to? Has anyone had any luck contacting him over social media or any sort of median of communication period? Maybe i'm just…Read more >
There's lots of talk going around about how the wikia is going downhill and what not... I guess I've been so deep with adding content that I didn't notice anything was up, I thought badger was just being dramatic but I've seen more and more about it so I guess something is definitely up.
I need you guys to talk to me about issues and things like this so that I can fix it, rather than everyone fleeing. Before we have a discussion, however, I do need to tell you that statistically the wikia has been doing better than it has done for a long time. There are lots more views per day, lots more edits and new users every day. The pages are more organised (or in the process of being) so I'm baffled.

Here are my predictions for the series finale book. I came up with these on my own.
1. It will be revealed that Adamus, Sarah, Mark, and Sam will be bestowed Legacies by the Lorien Entity and become the Elders. Malcolm, Walker (and her men), Commander Sharma (and his men), GUARD, and all others who serve Lorien will become Earth's Garde, and all other humans who survive the invasion will become Cêpans
2. All humans who gain Legacies will only gain Telekinesis and enhancement. The exception to this is Adam, who will gain One's remaining Legacies, Sam, who will gain Eight's Legacies, Sarah, who will gain Two's, and Mark, who will gain Three's
3. The Invasion will go all over the world, and most of the book will be battles similar to the end of…
