“Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I’d been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.
Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others. . . .
I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we’re looking for the others–including John.
But so are they.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They caught me in New York–but I escaped.
I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started.
But they’ll have to fight us first.”

For a while now, I had been so excited to read this book. The last book left my heart broken with the many revelations that had happen. I didn’t think I could bring myself to read this book cause for me, I was done. But….I needed to know. My mind would not let me rest until I knew if things have changed. It did.
What I enjoyed most about this book is the great plot. The reader gets to meet the rest of the group. 7,8 and 9. There are plenty of surprises with lots of action involved. I really loved that the reader gets plenty point of views switches without lost of information. At first glance, when I saw that there were several point of views, (6,7,8,9, and 4), I didn’t think it would do good for me. I’m very picky about POV switches  These switches were done nicely, flowing from one to the other.
There are several new friendships forms as well as love interest. I KNOW! Eeeeeek! 
*Takes Breath*
The friendships form go beyond what then reader sees. There is loyalty and strong urge to fight for all what they loss. When working together, the teams rocks. They get stuff done, protecting one another, fighting together. When they separate, things seem to go wrong all the time.
There is also the re-visit to some old character from the first book. I love stepping back where I originally fell in love. The reader gets some GOOD answers on situations that happen. I am happy to report, that it’s not all what it seems.
The Rise Of Nine is an gripping escape to dine into! It impresses the reader with lots of action and non-stop thrills. A compelling story that is moving, The Rise Of Nine is spellbinding!
I give it 4 BITES!
Happy Reading!
