I have just finished this book which was recommended to me by my cousin who in turn had it recommended to her by a colleague. There is a reason this book comes highly recommended and its because it rocks!
It is possibly the best sci-fi work I've read since twilight... it has a lot in common with twilight in terms of theme so if you liked twilight you will love this.
Its based around an alien who comes to earth in order to avoid an enemy race which destroyed his home planet. During the attack on his planet the main character (John) and eight other children are smuggled from Lorien (home planet) to Earth in the hopes that they will mature and come into their superpowers and fight off the enemy race. In order to ensure the children have the best possible chance of survival a charm was placed on them so that the enemy can only kill them in numerical order. 1,2,and 3 die early on and John is number 4.
I don't want to give to much away so I won't go into more detail but don't be put off by the fact its aliens because this is an excellent read! by Alison O' Connor
