Summary: The Garde have suffered an unbearable loss. Number Five has betrayed them. Eight is gone forever. Ella has been kidnapped. The others are now scattered.
In Chicago, John makes the unlikeliest of allies: Adam, a Mogadorian who turned his back on his people. He has invaluable information about Mog technology, battle strategies, and weaknesses. Most important, he knows where to hit them: their command base near Washington, DC. During the assault, however, John and Adam learn the unimaginable truth: it is too late. The Mogadorians have commenced their ultimate invasion plans.
With a front-row seat to the impending invasion, Ella finds herself in the hands of the enemy. For some reason she’s more valuable to them alive, and they’ll stop at nothing to turn her.
Meanwhile, Six, Nine, and Marina make their way through the Florida Everglades, hot on the trail of the traitorous Five. With the development of a new Legacy, Marina finally has the power to fight back—if her thirst for revenge doesn’t consume her first.
in all honesty, i felt that this book was a huge let down. i’ve loved all the previous books in this series, but not the revenge of seven. there were definitely some interesting parts, but i just felt that the story was getting old and it was the same recycled stuff all over again.
so i’ve never liked sarah, and she proceeded to annoy me even more during this book. john too. can they just stop making gooey eyes for once? you’re trying to save the world, no one cares about this pointless romance that serves no purpose to the plot. HONESTLY. i don’t care about your long ass calls, and the million “i love yous”.
i really like how realistically five has been shown. he’s constantly flipping sides and doing what he wants/thinks is best. that’s what a real person would do. normal people would think about themselves, and how to stay alive — and that’s exactly what five did. (although i will admit that i don’t particularly like him, i just like how real and 3d he is). obviously not everyone is going to have the same opinions and agree with their leader through everything.
i also really liked adam. i have some trust issues with him (due to the whole mog thing), but i find him very interesting and fun to read about. i can’t wait to learn more about him in future books, and i felt the revenge of seven didn’t spend too much time focusing on why he’s working with the garde.
to conclude this review, please don’t kill six.
