This book was really good. It is the 2nd in the Lorien Legacies series. John Smith, Number Four, is a fugitive from the law. He travels with Six, Sam and Bernie Kosar. We are also introduced to Marina, Number Seven. We learn that she is living in Spain, in an orphanage and her Cepan has given up. I don't want to give anything away but we briefly meet Number Nine and we learn who two of the travelers in the second rocket are. This book was an easy read and had lots of action. I can't wait for the next one.
