SPOILERS: The Revenge of Seven.
I just finished The Revenge of Seven and I don’t know how I feel about it. Mainly, the fact that Lorien, as a planet, is basically no more. The whole series made it seem like Lorien was hibernating and waiting, but now in this one it was like…Earth is the new Lorien and humans will become Garde now. I don’t like it. Yeah, Sam gets a legacy, but I feel like humans getting legacies will diminish the importance of the actual remaining Garde from Lorien. Uggghhhh this one was intense though. Mainly the last 100 pages. Not a lot happens before that. I just don’t know about this. Plus, I was really hoping for 8 to come back, and even more of a stretch, I was REALLY hoping that entity in the sanctuary would bring back ALL of the fallen Garde. It was a weird hope I had from the beginning of the series. That’s definitely not happening now. :( I’m looking forward to the last book though. Hopefully all of the unanswered question are addressed and I hope above all else, I don’t hate it.
DISCLAIMER : If you are a fan of the “I am Number Four” series and plan to read the books, or have read all but “The Fall of Five” there will be spoilers in this. Big spoilers. Also, I know this is a book series and the characters are fictional, but I like to voice my opinion. Some themes will even relate to the real world. * END DISCLAIMER*
Genocide. That is what this series is about, mass genocide. The Mogadorians are a people from a planet that have consumed all of its natural resources. So, like any civilization they looked for other ways to sustain their lifestyle. This turned into invading another planet and killing all of its inhabitants. Mass genocide. I don’t understand how anyone could possibly believe this option of survival was okay. It’s as if this race doesn’t have any moral compass, and maybe they don’t, I don’t know.
Reading into The Lost Files: Five’s Legacy and Five’s Betrayal some vital points were brought up. They looked history on Earth and saw some similar things to what they’re doing. Genocide, again. It’s easy to look past or forget that America has also committed mass genocide against the Native Americans. We also enslaved a whole race and decided a certain sex was inferior to the other. It’s disgusting really.
If this series has done anything, it’s opened my eyes to the wrong people have done, not in a fantastical book series, but in our Countries own history. What’s done is done, but It would be wise and respectful to honor these people that have been mistreated. I can say this series has truly made me ashamed and sorrowful towards others.
Five in this series has a different interpretation of the “Great Expansion.” The Mogadorians have killed an entire planet of it’s people and animals, but also the vegetation and resources. Now, it looks to do the same to Earth. They want to kill an entire planet, and use its resources. Or at least the majority of the people on the planet, and just be supreme rulers over the rest. That is unfathomable. Anyway you put it I will never understand how someone could willingly join the side of this army. Yes, fear is a contributing factor (a big one), but to agree with what their doing is twisted. I believe, neurologically something has to be off. Or maybe I just have a big heart.
Either way this series is DEEP. I can’t wait to get the latest one in the series tomorrow to see where this story goes.
