The Fall of Five official description:
The Fall of Five is the fourth novel in the New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series by Pittacus Lore. The Garde are finally reunited, but do they have what it takes to win the war against the Mogadorians?
John Smith—Number Four—thought that things would change once the Garde found each other. They would stop running. They would fight the Mogadorians. And they would win.
But he was wrong. After facing off with the Mogadorian ruler and almost being annihilated, the Garde know they are drastically unprepared and hopelessly outgunned. Now they’re hiding out in Nine’s Chicago penthouse, trying to figure out their next move.
The six of them are powerful, but they’re not strong enough yet to take on an entire army—even with the return of an old ally. To defeat their enemy, the Garde must master their Legacies and learn to work together as a team. More importantly, they’ll have to discover the truth about the Elders and their plan for the Loric survivors.
And when the Garde receive a sign from Number Five—a crop circle in the shape of a Loric symbol—they know they are so close to being reunited. But could it be a trap? Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it’s too late.
The Garde may have lost battles, but they will not lose this war.
Lorien will rise again.
The Mogadorians had invaded the planet Lorien. Some of the Loric people, the Garde, had Legacies, powers which allowed ten Garde children to escape, along with their Cêpan. They came to Earth. Number One, Number Two, and Number Three were dead. Number Four moved to Paradise, Ohio. He met a nerd, Sam Goode, who believed that his father had been abducted by aliens, and a girl, Sarah Hart. He told them about his real life and they helped him. Four`s Cêpan, Henri, was killed. Four, Six, and Sam fled from Paradise. Sarah was captured by the government. Sam was captured by the Mogs. Four met Number Nine. They go to a penthouse Nine has in Chicago and then go to New Mexico because of a dream they both had.
Number Seven was living in Spain. She was shy and untrained, thanks to her Cêpan, Adelina. Seven/Marina unknowingly met another member of the Garde, Ella. The Mogadorians attacked them. Marina`s Cêpan was killed. Marina, Six, Ella, Ella`s Cêpan (Crayton), and a human friend, Héctor, fought. Héctor was killed. So Marina, Ella, Six, and Crayton went to the mountains to meet another potential member of the Garde. They met Number Eight. Marina developed a crush on him. They see a cave with a prophecy of Eight`s death by sword, and Crayton is killed. The others teleport away. Six winds up in New Mexico and is captured by the government. Ella contacts her with Telepathy and so Ella, Marina, and Eight try to go to New Mexico. They find Setrákus Ra and fight him. Eight is stabbed with a sword. Marina heals him and then kisses him. Ella attacks Setrákus Ra and damages him. The Garde leave.
Four, Six, Marina, Eight, Nine, Ella, and Sarah are in Nine`s penthouse in Chicago. They are monitoring the Internet, and find an article about a crop circle with the Loric symbol for Five. Four insists that he and Six are the only ones to go meet Five, but Sarah comes along anyway. Nine is angry.
Sam is being tortured by Setrákus Ra. He tells whatever he thinks will not hurt the Garde. He is rescued by his father, Malcolm Goode, and a Mogadorian with a Legacy, Adam. Adam is separated from them. Sam and Malcolm flee.
Ella and Marina talk, about Ella`s nightmares. Ella also talks about who she thinks is a couple, including Marina and Eight and herself and Nine. Marina and Eight go to the waterfront and wander around happily, with Ella`s approval. They joke around and relax. When they return, Nine is angry and they train. They enjoy themselves and Marina punches Nine in the face. The training also helps their skills. Ella says that she is leaving, because she found out that she was not chosen by the Elders to escape Lorien. Marina, Eight, and Nine talk her out of it.
Four, Six, and Sarah find Number Five. He is untrained and naive, but has cool Legacies of Flight and Externa. They fight a massive monster and are pretty much saved by Malcolm and Sam. Sam and Six hug extremely awkwardly. They return to the penthouse and all share dinner. Sam talks about the Mogadorian with Legacies who rescued him. Nine makes fun of Five as soon as he sees him. Ella was having nightmares with Setrákus Ra in them. She developed Telekinesis when a nightmare woke her up.
The Garde play Capture the Flag. The Garde find some Mogadorians with documents. Later, Ella is unable to wake up from a nightmare. Four is pulled into her nightmare when she grabs him. Marina is distraught. Eight comforts her. The remaining Garde decide to go get Five`s Chest from Florida, against Marina`s better judgement.
Sam translates the documents they found the Mogadorians carrying. He discovers that they contain the address of Nine`s penthouse and Malcolm`s notes. Sam is bewildered. Malcolm`s penthouse is attacked.
Four is in Ella`s vision. He hears her voice in his head asking for help and sees her in a throne next to Setrákus Ra. Ella orders Six and Sam to be executed, looking dazed. As Six is beheaded, Four wakes up with a new scar.
Five, Marina, Nine, Eight, and Six meet a monster. Eight eventually kills it, but is injured. Marina heals him. He says that he could kiss her. She responds suggesting to kiss later. Five attacks and subdues Nine and Six. Six is knocked out and Nine is being held underwater. He says that the Garde cannot beat the Mogadorians, and that Marina and Eight would listen, but Nine and Six wouldn`t. Marina says to stop drowning Nine, but as soon as Nine is above water, he starts goading Five. Five eventually tries to stab him to death. Eight teleports and is killed instead. Even Five is upset. Marina develops Cyrokinesis and pokes out one of Five`s eyes, freezing Eight`s body.
Four chooses healing Malcolm over stopping Ella from being kidnapped. Four meets a Mogadorian who can cause earthquakes and realizes that he is good. The book ends with Four saying:
"Alright, Adam. You`re gonna help me win this war." Edit
