Improved Essays
“There's no set futures, only the one we make." - Number Seven” (pg. 356). The Fall Of Five by Pittacus Lore is about 9 aliens, who have powers called Legacies that come from the planet Lorien, they were chosen by the leaders of Lorien who were called Elders chose them to take their positions during an attack on Lorien, they sent the 9 young aliens with 9 guardians named Cèpans assigned to protect them and their chest. The chosen 9 have a charm that makes them hard to kill because they have to be killed from number 1 to 9, but the charm will break if they come in contact with each other. Some interesting facts about Fall Of Five is that the author, Pittacus Lore is that it’s a pen name for the 2 of the original authors that wrote the book …show more content…
The 9 aliens have to have trust to move around and talk to people since they could be Mogadorians in disguise, this theme of trust is important because the amount of trust they put into the other number shows since they trust each other with their lives in each other’s hands. The major conflict in The Fall Of Five is that the Mogadorians are hunting for The Chosen Gardes since they’re the only ones that can defeat them and save Lorien from dying. They have to defeat the Mogadorians with only 9 gardes, two humans and one unexpected ally seeking revenge, it will take hope and faith to defeat the Mogadorians, who have the government’s help in finding them since they tricked the government into thinking they’re good and the Gardes are the one’s with a evil agenda. The story takes place in many places, they live in Nine’s old penthouse in New York serving as their base, Sam, Number 4’s best friend travels to New Mexico, Texas, and New York to find them. They also travel to India to find Number Eight and to a convent in Spain where they found Marina or Number …show more content…
I like the author’s writing style because it’s complex, but simple. I also like how the author’s pen name is a Lorien Elder in the story which I find clever because it makes me wonder if he’s alive because on every book jacket for the Author’s Bio, it says “Pittacus Lore is Lorien's ruling Elder. He had been on Earth preparing for the war that will decide Earth's fate. His whereabouts are unknown.” What I don’t like is the suspense at the end of the book, I like the suspense, but I always try to guess who dies or what happens, it makes my mind races with possibility. In conclusion, The Fall Of Five would be excellent book to read if you like a book that keeps you on your toes and makes you guess after each book like who does he kill, will she live or will it end happily for them. I know this series kept me on my toes after each book and made me think about what would happen and the possibilities of what the next book will show us after the last

    When the aliens finally do come down, the audience is forced to grapple with its expectations, upset with a serious matter such as aliens being handled by such a “girly” genre, which treats the landing like the mixture of the Apollo 11 mission and the launch party of a flagship fashion line. The aliens land in not a pristine high-tech spaceship but a small, battered black unassuming spaceship. They are a matriarchy who want peace and to learn from each other, and they are the ones that sent out first contact. This leads to diplomatic meetings among representatives of all the countries from the two worlds, like the boring parts of the Star Wars prequels with nary a lightsaber in sight. Still, this desire to not immediately go to war makes them far more formidable than giant spaceships that humanity can destroy with…

The phrase represents the inevitability of death and how it is impossible to have any control over such a thing, thinking so is simply an illusion. The theme of fate and free will is all throughout the text and provides an excellent point of discussion and debate that can be very beneficial to the education of…
