The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies #2) - Pittacus Lore The Power of Six was an easy read that comes with number of shortcomings. Like the previous installment, this book lacked in details on background of its characters, fulled with plot-devices and was tainted by unnecessary romantic scenes. The only thing that this book never short of is the action sequences but even that felt rather repetitive at some parts. Fun and mindless read, yes, slightly better than I am Number Four, perhaps, but there was really nothing remarkable in it that I could think of.
