There are also romantic issues to add to the story’s plot. It is more than just a love triangle in John Smith’s life. He believes that he will only love Sarah Hart, and yet he finds himself attracted to Six. To complicate matters, Sam has a huge crush on Six. And, who does Six like? Well, I cannot spoil that part.
My only problem reading the book were the abrupt changes from Marina to John’s story. The only clue that Lore has changed characters is the styling of the font. As I moved through the story, it became less of a jolt and actually flowed well. However, that first time I was uncertain of what had happened. I expected the chapter to acknowledge the character’s point of view. Later in the story, though, the acknowledging of point of view would end up taking the reader from the story. The earlier chapters revolve around one point of view at a time. Then, when their stories begin to connect, it is not uncommon for two points of view per chapter. The movements happen quickly and the subtle change in font keeps the story moving without jolting the reader.
I am sincerely excited about the third book and what will happen to the characters. A lot of new information is revealed at the end of the book. Plus, one of my favorite characters has gone missing so I am dying to see what happens to them.
If you enjoy reading young adult books, but would like to read something unique, then I think the Lorien Legacies are for you. The books combine aliens, teenage issues, and action into an amazing series that deserves to be read. Much like the Harry Potter series, I think that this one is perfect for people of any age. It is not just for a younger market.
