Generation One by Pittacus Lore Review

I have been wanting a sequel to the Lorien Legacies series since I finished the last one and now I have finally found time to read it and I was so excited for it. Now, it is time for a review.



The first book in a pulse-pounding new series that’s set in the world of the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series. The war may be over—but for the next generation, the battle has just begun!

It has been over a year since the invasion of Earth was thwarted in Pittacus Lore’s United as One. But in order to win, our alien allies known as the Garde unleashed their Loric energy that spread throughout the globe. Now human teenagers have begun to develop incredible powers of their own, known as Legacies.

To help these incredible and potentially dangerous individuals—and put the world at ease—the Garde have created an academy where they can train this new generation to control their powers and hopefully one day help mankind. But not everyone thinks that’s the best use of their talents. And the teens may need to use their Legacies sooner than they ever imagined.

Taken from goodreads

In United As One we get to see some of the humans start to use their powers such as Sam and Nigel, it is this series that will focus more on these people as they learn how to use their powers for good and how they are able to use their legacies for different situations as they find out more about them. At first it was strange to read about the same story but from different characters points of view, when I started the book I wasn’t emotionally attatched to the characters like I was with John Smith or Six so it was a bit of a struggle to get into the book, but when you find out more about the characters then you cant help yourself but end up loving them too.

We get introduced to six new main characters and it is great to find out more about them as they learn to use their legacies. Like I said at first you wont feel anything for the characters but as the book goes on and you find out more about their back story and get to know them better they become very enjoyable to read about as you just want to know more.

I think that Pittacus Lore did a great job in being able to carry on the story from what I though was a great ending of the series. Bringing in new characters and showing us how the world is going to contrinue and just because the Mogs are no longer a big threat doesn’t mean the world is safe yet. The descriptions are perfect exactly like the Lorien Legacies series and it was great to get back to this style of writing after taking some time away.

I find this to be a fantastic start to a new series and I now just want the next book in the series to be released so I am able to contrinue and find out more about the new group of heroes, the Earth Grande. If you liked the Lorien Legacy series then you will also like this series, and if you haven’t yet read the Lorien Legacy then I wouldn’t recommend starting with this as there is some back story you will need first.
