The Rise of Nine – Pittacus Lore


Not a bad story in its own right, but it certainly was nowhere near as good as I Am Number Four, or The Power of Six.

What is was good for though was the set up. It has made a lot of promises for the future of the troupe of Loriens, and I shall certainly continue with the books in this series.

The next book, The Fall of Five is out now.

The Watchman


The first of four (so far) crossover novels between Joe Pike & Elvis Cole, and which precedes the earlier crossover novel I read, The First Rule. While reading them out of order didn’t spoil my enjoyment of either, this one certainly filled in some blanks about the behaviour of some characters in The First Rule.
