The Lorien Legacies series (Book 1)
"In the beginning we were nine.
Three are gone.
Six are left.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
I am Number Four.
I know that I am next."
With a title and summary like that, and with puny Malaysia (pardon my opinion) included, you will need a chain to hold me from flipping through those pages. It has been a long time since I came across another intriguing title and summary like this one, with rhyming passages to go with as well, so I expected that this would be a story with a nice plot in it.
