    Well, it turns out a hero's lot is not glory or reward, but sacrifice. The Lost Files: The Search for Sam: 4/5 stars The Last Days of Lorien: 3.5/5 stars The Forgotten Ones: 4/5 stars So this is a bind up containing 3 different novellas that tie in with the main series 'I am Number Four' and this one follows Adamus Sutekh for the majority of it. It was different for me to see a character that didn't have a big role in the series right up until the last 2 books of the series so it was good Well, it turns out a hero's lot is not glory or reward, but sacrifice.

It was different for me to see a character that didn't have a big role in the series right up until the last 2 books of the series so it was good to learn more about Adamus and the little things that happened during the main series. I don't really enjoy reading novellas for the most part because they don't really add much to the main story plot but i did learn some new things from this one that helped me understand more of how the mogadorians who are the main threat in the main series. Adamus is a very interesting character and i always thought he would turn out to be evil and betray the group but this one really went in more depth of how much of a strained relationship he had with his family and how different he truly is from the rest of his people. I'd say defiantly read the main series before reading this novella because it does spoil somethings from the main series so keep that in mind before picking this one up.

    Some books are good because they are really well written, they contain complicated, sympathetic characters, or have themes that transcend time and culture. Then there are the books that are really good because they are kind of like crack. Against all odds, the Lorien Legacies series has kept my attention. The books are quick to read, light on teenage angst, and heavier on action. The Lost Files, being short stories, work well on such construction. I gobbled this collection up in two nights.

The books are quick to read, light on teenage angst, and heavier on action. The Lost Files, being short stories, work well on such construction. I gobbled this collection up in two nights. Unlike the first collection, this one doesn't try to narrate from a female character's perspective, which really helps keep interest. The first and last "files" revive Adam's story line from the first collection. Initially, it wasn't clear if he was going to be introduced into the main series, but it seems that he will play at least a minor role. I wonder if that was originally planned by the author or if the fans really enjoyed the character. The second story is Sandor's point-of-view of the last days of Lorien. At first I thought that this chapter would be a complete waste of time, but it did illuminate a few things, such as the cultural distinction between guarde and cepan, so it was ultimately worth reading. All-in-all, nicely marketed piece of teaser to get fans in gear for the release of the 4th book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The Search for Sam: 4.5/5. Adam, oh Adam. Adam is easily one of my favourite characters after reading these novellas. And this one especially. Despite One being dead and all, the two of them are so good together and it makes for a very interesting reason for why Adam does everything he does, betraying his family and everything. And Malcolm and Adam, they're just so nice together. I really think the only reason I didn't give this novella 5 stars is because it was slightly slow to take off, because The Search for Sam: 4.5/5.

And Malcolm and Adam, they're just so nice together. I really think the only reason I didn't give this novella 5 stars is because it was slightly slow to take off, because of Adam being so determined to stay hidden. The Last Days of Lorien: 3.5/5. The title of this one gave me high hopes, maybe that's why I felt slightly disappointed when I finished it. Sandor's POV was interesting, since he never appears in the novels and only through Nine's eyes in Nine's Legacy. And I was quite surprised to realise I didn't like him at all to begin with. I thought he was unnecessarily whiny, but he grew on me towards the end when he decided to take on the Cépan role. Also, Nine and Henri's real names! I thought the novella was kinda rushed and confusig, but it makes sense, since the events would probably feel rushed and confusing to someone thrown into it like Sandor. The Forgotten Ones: 5/5. More Adam = happy me. I loved how Adam developed between this novella and the previous one, as well as during the course of this one. His trip to save the Chimæra was really great, the hero's cause he kinda needs. And of course the ending I already knew, having read FoF, but I was still happy to read how he drives as fast as he can to Malcolm and the Garde's aid. Collective rating: 4.3/5 stars.

    Thank you Pittacus for finally justifying whatever has happened to Sam. I remember feeling bummed out because, why would the author forget about telling its readers what sort of shit happened to one of the main characters? Well, now I see why. It's cause he was thinking of writing another compilation of short stories about the series. Bravo.

    I've been trying to read this for quite a while, but couldn't find the second story anywhere online. Luckily, my lovely boyfriend bought it and lent it to me. Summary of the Story The Search for Sam is the first story and is narrated once again by Adamus, the traitorous Mogadorian. (view spoiler)[One starts disappearing more often, and she admits they both knew her being with him wasn't going to last forever. He goes back to Ashwood Estates to pretend he is sorry, just so he can access One's body. I've been trying to read this for quite a while, but couldn't find the second story anywhere online. Luckily, my lovely boyfriend bought it and lent it to me. Summary of the Story The Search for Sam is the first story and is narrated once again by Adamus, the traitorous Mogadorian. (view spoiler)[One starts disappearing more often, and she admits they both knew her being with him wasn't going to last forever. He goes back to Ashwood Estates to pretend he is sorry, just so he can access One's body. His father wants to have him killed and allows the new doctor to perform a life threatening operation on him to finally extract One's memories this time. Instead, Adamus knocks out the doctor, and while visiting One in his mind, she transfers her legacy, earthquakes, to him. He collapses the whole building and manages to escape with Sam's dad, the last Greeter alive. Over the next few months, they grow close and help Adamus develop his powers. They go to Paradise so that Malcolm can reconnect with his son at last, but of course, Sam is currently being held captive by the Mogs. The two head to the government compound in New Mexico and end up there at the same time as the rest of the Garde, who are engaging in battle at the other end of the site. They find Sam, and One holds off the Mogs while Sam and his father escape, knowing full well that he will likely die. Accepting this, he uses his legacy to set off the explosives in an attempt to kill everyone at the compound, including himself and his brother, Ivanick. (hide spoiler)] In The Last Days of Lorien, we get a glimpse of Lorien in its final days of existence, from the POV of Sandor, Nine's now deceased cepan. (view spoiler)[Sandor is a troublemaker who sneaks into clubs by manipulating technology. He is caught by one of his teachers -- but not before meeting his favourite singer, Devektra -- and expelled, forced to either work in the farmlands or attend a school where he will work with technology. He chooses to go to the school, and actually enjoys repairing the grids in the city, even though he notices that almost every one of them is broken. He accompanies a mentor cepan to visit his Garde for the first time. The Garde gives his charge an electronic wristband that matches his own. Sandor sees this as an opportunity to sneak into the city and see Devektra perform again on Lorien's special day of celebration. He borrows the cepan's bracelet as entrance to the club, and visits Devektra backstage. She tells him she has a bad feeling about tonight, but he dismisses it as nerves. During the show, the club is bombed and almost everyone is killed. Sandor receives alerts on his wristband, and is located by Brandon (a.k.a. Henri), the one who recruited him to the school. Brandon is disappointed to find Sandor and not the man the wristband belongs to, as he and his Garde were supposed to be the ninth group to board the ship that will leave Lorien. Sandor travels to the Garde's home and brings him back with him, and Brandon lets him board the ship as well as the Garde's replacement mentor (I'm sure you've figured out by now that the Garde is Nine). (hide spoiler)] In the third and final story, The Forgotten Ones, the POV shifts once again to Adamus, who wakes up among the wreckage of the New Mexico compound,(view spoiler)[ and rescues one of the survived Mogs because he might have information or something. Outside, they run into a wolf, but when Adamus demonstrates his legacy, the wolf is immediately affectionate and protective of him. Even when Dust (what Adamus has decided to name him) transforms from a wolf into a lizard, it still doesn't register with him that Dust is a chimaera. But Rex, the rescued Mog, points it out to him. At first, Rex despises Adamus and plans on turning him in to the Mogs, but after some bonding time admiring Dust and stealing money from a purse thief, they seem to get along. They plan on travelling to another secret Mog compound on an island in New York to rescue the other chimaera that are apparently being held and experimented on. They succeed, but Rex decides to stay behind because although he likes Adamus, he doesn't agree with his beliefs. So Adamus is last seen driving a getaway car full of tiny shape-shifting animals in the back seat. Awesome. (hide spoiler)] What I Thought The Last Days of Lorien was really interesting, and I would love to see a whole book set on Lorien pre-destruction. I was also really glad that the other two books were narrated by Adamus, because, although he is a Mogadorian, he is one of my favourite characters. And I have a theory: (view spoiler)[What if Adamus is the reincarnation of Pittacus Lore, not any of the Garde? I mean, what if One was originally supposed to be Pittacus (I know she's a girl, but can a girl not be Pittacus?) and she gave him her powers so...or what if Adamus is the only one eventually powerful enough to beat Setrakus Ra because he himself was a Mogadorian and there is something special in that? I don't know, this made more sense in my head, but I think that no matter what, Adamus is going to play a huge role in the Garde's -- hopeful -- defeat over the Mogs, I'm sure. (hide spoiler)] All of the stories were funny and interesting, and everyone knows I love whenever the chimaeras are present in the story. I can't wait to see what (view spoiler)[Adamus does with a car full of animals, and if he successfully meets up with the other Garde. (hide spoiler)] I guess I'll find out right now, because I'm off to read The Fall of Five!

    I'm not a huge Adam fan so I didn't really need 2 stories from his pov. But the second one was interesting. As for the story set on Lorien, it had a slow start but once the invasion started things got really good.

    What a great read! Secret Histories (Loren Legacies: The Lost Files #4-6) is basically divided into three parts. The first and the third novella continues with Adam's story and follows his adventures and misadventures after escaping from his father and his fellow Mogadorians.

Secret Histories (Loren Legacies: The Lost Files #4-6) is basically divided into three parts.

The second novella is centered around Sandor, Nine's Cepan, and his life in Lorien before the attack of the Mogadorians. In my review for the previous Lost Files book, I wrote "I really hope to see Adam again, maybe in the fourth book or the fifth."--and I am definitely pleased to see Adam return in the second installment of The Lost Files. I thought reading in Adam's POV was still very refreshing, with him being a "Mogadorian traitor". I loved how the first novella played out his connection/relationship with One, and also his friendship with Rex, a fellow Mogadorian soldier, in the third novella. I also really enjoyed the plot of the first novella, from his rescuing of Malcolm Goode to their search for Sam. Overall, what I loved about the two novellas was that both novellas were action-packed and fast-paced. The second novella was also an enjoyable read. I loved how it was told in Sandor's POV- definitely a new and interesting perspective in the series. I loved the pacing of the story and how the story had built up to the inevitable attack of Mogadorians in Lorien. Overall, what I really loved about the book was the two main characters in the 3 novellas; Adam and Sandor. Both characters were very strong and memorable. I really hope Adam actually appears in the fourth or fifth book in the actual series, and not just in The Lost Files. The entire book was a fast read, but nonetheless a very worthwhile one. PS. The book also included Chapter One of The Fall of Five. And can I just say, I NEED THE FALL OF FIVE NOW. YES PLEASE. :))

But because of how it ended, I deduced that the story was a one-shot because I assumed that Adam was dead. Accepting this as fact, I continued reading. I finished the second story. I flipped to the start of the third, and I kid you not, once I realised that the story was narrated by Adam, now knowing that he's NOT dead, I bursted into tears and I for some reason instinctively bit the book. That's how happy I was that he wasn't dead, and that I got to read more about Adam and his rebellious antics. I remember this whole scene extremely vividly and fondly, and I just felt the need to record it down somewhere. These novellas are amazing, and in cases like Adam are sometimes better than the main series. I feel sorry for the people who didn't read them as they were being published alongside the main books.

    I really loved this book, two of the three short stories complement the time period between "The Rise Of Nine" and "The Fall Of Five", these show us some of the mysteries that were missing during the main book (Sam's, his dad's and the Chimaeras' location) as well as continuing the story of Adam who is in my opinion one of the best characters in this series.

These two short stories work so well because they show us exactly what we were missing from the main book but leave us hanging and expecting for the next one. In these two stories, I loved the character development of Adam, now he's an individual and is starting to make his own path instead of depending on One like the first time we met him. The third (second if we talk about order) short story gives us some backstory about Lorien and Sandor (who is in my opinion the best Cepan we have seen so far) which is always good, it really surprised me to know that he wasn't really trained and wasn't Nine's Cepan at the beginning but I guess all happened for a reason and I'm really glad he came to like his assignment and do it so well. Sandor's character development is one of the biggest I have seen so far, just by comparing him in this short story and in "Nine's Legacy" we can see so many big changes. I feel like these short stories are a must for anyone who is into this series because you get to see so many different things in them that you don't get in the main books, can't wait to get to continue reading this amazing series :)!

    A nice companion to the I Am Number Four series. This is a compilation of three novellas, two of which are about Adam, the Mog who helps Sam's dad. It was interesting to see where these stories fit in with the series.

Adam's plan is to go back home and confront his father the general and possibly trick him into helping him. Part of the plan is to try and recreate the process of when One's mind was originally mixed with his. One helps him as much as she can and in the end reveals the truth to her existence in his mind and the true goal was to pass her powers to him. During this task he finds Sam's dad Malcolm. Together they escape and discover that Sam is being held captive and they want to help him escape. (#5) The Last Days of Lorien: This story is told from the perspective of sandor, Nine's Cêpan. He was always a troublemaker growing up fooling with the Technologies of things that he so he could get away and sneak out of school. During one of these trips he gets caught and instead of being expelled he must choose taking an apprenticeship which he chooses to do engineering. He does everything he can to hate the school but learns to love the work. Sandor soon meets another Cêpan and meets one of the Garde children we now know as Nine from the other books. Because Sandor stole the transmitter from Nine's original Cêpan, he now takes his place on the ship during the evacuation of Lorien during the invasion. (#6) The Forgotten Ones: Adam slowly wakes up and sees the destruction his legacy caused to the Dulce Base. Next to him is an injured Mog, who he decides he can take prisoner and perhaps gain some information from to help the Garde. During their travels he learns the name of the Mog, Rex. He also makes a new friend out of an escaped Chimæra, whom he names Dust. The three travel across the U.S. with the decision to rescue the other Chimæra that Rex mentioned. Rex isn't really an ally, but he hasn't turned on him, yet. They make it to the Mog military base in New York at Plum Island, and begin their quest. Once the animals were recovered it was time for Adam to get moving and Rex would let him go, but he was going to stay to join back with the Mogs. During the escape the military group announce that they have located the Garde and move to attack. Adam tries to warn them but doesn't know if he was in time or not. (Next to find out what happened in The Fall of Five)

There's a couple new characters in the first and last stories, but they mostly are from previous books. The second has many new characters as it is placed back on Lorien. The characters are intriguing, and they do grow. It's great fun to see what Lorien exactly was like. You really see and understand the culture; it's quite different from ours. All in all, it's a good book and series that I recommend to teenagers who enjoy science fiction.

    Ummm ... spoiler alert? I love all the stories in this book. The first one is The Search for Sam a.k.a. The Time When Adam Finally Accepts His Fate as A Rebel. I was yelling, "GO, ADAM!" while reading this one. Inside, at least. I'm sad also because ... One and Adam :'( I guess I cried a bit.

The Cepan and the Garde. The third is The Forgotten Ones. And YASSS we got Adam's POV again! I can never tired reading his point of view. Finally we know how he met Rex. It was really good and I'm so proud of Adam :') Solid five stars for this book.

I was great to see from the perspective of someone who is not a Garde and Sandor is really charming! I would recommend that you read these short stories if you've read the Loren Legacies!

    I really liked how these short stories picked up right where they left off with the last one! The Search for Sam was all based on Adamus again!! You get to learn more about what happened to Adam and how he met Malcom and Sam! In The Last Days of Lorien you get to understand more about how Sandor (#9's Cepan) became a Cepan and how life was like for him on Lorien before the attack, which I thought was rather interesting.

    In this series of novellas we hear more of Adam and his bond from beyond the grave with one and the subsequent plot he devises with another semi decent Mogadorian called Rex to break out the chimera form Plum island and also the background story to Sandor, Nine's Cepan. All incredibly detailed tales that totally back up the main plots of the novels and such a wealth of detail I totally salute the author for his attention to even minute aspects of the story. Enjoying these as much as the original s In this series of novellas we hear more of Adam and his bond from beyond the grave with one and the subsequent plot he devises with another semi decent Mogadorian called Rex to break out the chimera form Plum island and also the background story to Sandor, Nine's Cepan.

I feel like this was the first book in the series where we saw that the war isn’t so black and white. Also, I learned something shocking about my favorite character, Henri/Brandon - he was willing to leave Sandor and Nine to die on Lorien. At the same time, two Mogadorians were willing to help the Garde and the Chimaera. I think Sandor’s novella was probably my favorite, but I loved all the n This was absolutely amazing.

    Honestly don't think there is a single book in this series I don't like, it's the type of series you can't get tired of. That's a good thing because there are sooooo many books in the series. Honestly I loved Sandor's POV, especially when there was nine, it's like I know him so well because he's such a main character but I don't know his past, and honestly I love toddler nine, he's the type of character that makes you smile. Four is also so cute as a kid, amazing how strong they grew up to be!

    Although it has been a while since I read the Lorien Legacies series, these side stories were very enjoyable and didn't require to much knowledge of the exact story line of the main series. I especially enjoyed the two Adam stories as he is one of my favourite characters and getting another look at his background story made me appreciate him even more.

    These novellas made for a quick and enjoyable read while I'm sick. I still found a couple of minor plot inconsistencies, like I've discovered in other books in the series, but I find Adamus to be the most interesting character in the series and really like the novellas that provide his backstory and character development.

    This book was a book I picked up when I had nothing to do. I was really intrigued with the book. The book had a really good story line. I tried to pick up the rest of the series, but I couldn’t get into it, and the books couldn’t stick. I do recommend this book to beginners and young adults. Definitely a world worth getting into.

    Im giving this book a rating of 5 because im super fan of Pittacus Lore. And this book enlightened me about the history or Lorien. Since most of the series doesn't give any things about the past. This also answers some of my questions in on how the story on the other books ended up that way. Reading the next one.
