The worst was supposed to be over. We were reunited after a decade apart. We were discovering the truth about our past. We were training and getting stronger every day. We were even happy. . . .We never imagined the Mogadorians could turn one of our own against us. We were fools for trusting Five. And now Eight is lost forever. I would do anything to bring him back, but that's impossible. Instead, I will do whatever it takes to destroy every last one of them...

It took me a while to get around to reading it, but when I finally did I just couldn't stop! I loved the plot twists and I think they did a really good job with the different character's points of view.

The Revenge of Seven was an outstanding book in the Lorien Legacies series, and the incorporated plot twists and the constant action made for one of the best books in the series. Ella awakes and finds herself in Setrákus Ra's ship, held prisoner there
as the Garde try to rescue her. The narration from Ella on her view from life on the ship is so interesting, because we get a glimpse of how the Mogadorians and their race operate. I think that the author made a smart move integrating their life on the ship and of the Mogadorians, because it gives the readers a break from the same problems the Garde are facing. It brings a whole new story to tell, and I found it so fascinating to see what's happening on the opposing side. I also began to notice in this book, just how much the characters personalities have aged. Although they may still share and have defining characteristics making them the unique people they are, you can really tell just even in their dialogue that they've matured. They may still be teenagers, but they've stepped up and starting acting like real soldiers, which is awesome to see as through the series. @ShepReads of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Best book of all the series!

This is one of my favorite books in the I AM NUMBER FOUR series. I'm glad that there are more books in the series!

Amazing! This one is definitively my favourite! I cannot believe that they made it to the sanctuary. I cried when Eight was brought back to life, even if it was just for a couple of seconds.

I liked this book and my review is mostly of praise. I found that the plot was very
interesting and kept me intrigued most of the way through the story. I found that the plot hooked the reader. I would not let go until the end of the book. When you start, you wonder what would happen next in the book. I found the characters to have vivid personalities as usual, each with their own unique background. When reading the description of each character, you get a view of what the author meant for the characters to look like. The other books in the series like The Revenge of
Seven were confusing at some parts but I found that this book went back on track.
In my opinion, this book was by far the best book in the Lorien Legacies series because I found that not only was this book the most interesting of the five books
but was also the one that actually stayed on track. I would give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The Revenge of Seven is the fifth book in the Lorien Legacies book series. It follows directly from The Fall of Five and alternates between the lives of Four, in an abandoned factory in Baltimore with Mogadorian traitor Adamus, Malcolm, Sarah, Sam, Bernie Kosar and the Chimæra that Adam had rescued. Six, with Marina and Nine, still in the Everglades; and Ella, who has awoken to find herself onboard a Mogadorian ship called the Anubis, in the custody of Setrákus Ra.

I cannot wait until the next book, the "Fate of Ten"! I'm still so upset over 8's death (in the 'Fall of Five').

What the heck!? That ending was pure awesomeness. Great book though.

I can't believe he would do this to us! That ending?!?!?! Almost as bad as Rick Riordan's conclusion of Mark of Athena! I don't think I can wait another 8 months for the next book to come out!
Okay, so this review is going to be a mixture of my feelings towards the book and some plot summary (so I can look back at this next August when I get the sixth book and don't remember what has happened).
SO! I'm not sure how I feel about Five. He killed Eight (UGGH!), is working with the Mogs, yet seemed to show a more negative side towards Setrakus Ra than I had expected. I mean, he literally tried to help Ella escape the Anubis instead of running away on his own (plus kept her from getting killed accidentally by both John and Nine). Not sure where his loyalties lie, and not sure how his character will develop, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing where the story takes him.
Woah, Marina! I love how she has changed through this series. Starting off as a frightened little girl, she has turned into a major BA. She appeared very hostile and impatient at times, but with her growing acceptance of Eight's death and the old, caring Marina beginning to resurface, I'm crossing my fingers that in this next book Marina will emerge as a benevolent hero and feared soldier.
Okay, I just can't get enough of John- I love that he is no longer comatose in this book! Finally, we can see real-time events happening through the eyes of the one who began this whole series. I thought the way he handled the secretary of defense guy, by saving him from the suicide attempt and healing his body of the Mogadorian's treatments was perfect. I don't think that situation could've been handled better. He's just the all-around good guy that the Earth is in desperate need of
What is up with Nine? I can't tell if he has feelings for Ella, feelings for Marina, or no feelings of that sort at all for any of the characters. His snide comments are fun to read, he handles himself and the things around him with no expectations (like the sonic-boom gloves), and pretty much is one of the nonchalant BA's that exist in this story. I know he's not responsible but is the reason why Eight died, but he is also very brave- whirling machine parts at helicopters (manned by the FBI agents who are rebelling against the Mogs... but still), leaping onto the stage in New York to try and save Ella, and finally taking and breaking Setrakus Ra's Eye of Thaloc staff. I don't really know why, but he's my like second favorite character, and I hope that he just keeps getting better as the series continues
Six in this book was definitely the mediator between Marina and Nine, as well as the tension breaker between Marina and Adam. As always, she retains her reputation as another BA. But woah! Her and Sam hooked up?! I knew they were a couple, but it happened so fast and with so little detail, I couldn't believe it!
Sam!!!!!!!!! You have powers?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am infinitely satisfied with this series XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD
