The Rise of NineBook - 2012 | 1st ed. --
The third book of the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series!
The Mogadorians who destroyed the planet Lorien continue to hunt for the Garde, the small group of Loric survivors who have taken refuge on Earth. During a dangerous mission at a Mog base in West Virginia, John found and rescued the brutish Nine. But even with their combined powers, special abilities known as Legacies, the pair barely escaped with their lives. And in the process, John's best friend, Sam Goode, was lost and taken captive by the enemy.
In order to save him--and our world--John and Nine must join forces with Six and Seven who have been battling the Mogs in Spain, and who are now trying to locate Number Eight in India. The Garde must come together before it is too late. They are Lorien and Earth's only hope.

Nine looks over at me and rubs his hands together, all eager anticipation. "Johnny boy, have we discussed how important oral hygiene is to me?" he looks back at Setrakus Ra, "Dude, brush your teeth before you even think about threatening me!" He extends his glowing red staff, turns to Setrakus Ra and charges.
We walk together in silence for a few more minutes, until Eight speaks. 'Do you ever wish the Elders had given us our Inheritance in locked backpacks instead?" He switches his Chest to the other arm.
“Setrakus is more or less invincible. Only Pittacus Lore, the most powerful of all the Lorien Elders, would have been able to defeat him.”
Coarse Language: Words like d*** and s*** but nothing worse than that.
