Publisher's Summary

The seventh and final book in the number-one New York Times best-selling I Am Number Four series! With United as One, this action-packed series comes to a surprising, breathtaking, and utterly satisfying conclusion.

The Garde didn't start this war, but they'll do whatever it takes to end it once and for all....

The Mogadorians have invaded Earth. Their warships loom over our most populated cities, and no country will risk taking them head-on. The Garde are all that stand in the way, but they'll need an army of their own to win this fight.

They've teamed up with the US military, but it might not be enough. The Garde need reinforcements, and they've found them in the most unexpected place. Teenagers from across the globe, like John Smith's best friend, Sam, have developed abilities. So John and the others must get to them before the Mogs, because if they don't their enemies will use these gifted teens for their own sinister plan.

But after all the Mogadorians have taken from John - his home, his family, his friends, and the person he loves most - he might not want to put any more lives in danger. He's got nothing left to lose, and he's just discovered he has been given an incredible new Legacy. Now he can turn himself into the ultimate weapon. So will he risk his life to save the world, or will he realize that power in numbers will save us all?

So much promise!

For an entire series i was along for the ride. Epic battles book after book with Twists and turns. Such a great series. then came the final book. i listened and was sad you only got two voices, only two narrators, only two minds. For a book that called itself united as one I was sorely disappointed that it ended so haphazardly and everyone left went off on their own. The unity and family was missing in this book. They forgot what had made the other books great and almost ruined everything by turning it into a revenge and violence novel instead of being multi voiced and character driven. So sad, too bad, oh well. so unsatisfying. Now I have to find some fanfic writer who wrote a better ending to such an awesome series.

Meh

I'm a huge fan of the book series, however as the final book I felt it was a little lack luster. Even of this was not the finale this was definitely the least exciting book. However it does not ruin the series one bit. Fantastic series!!

Not the best narrator choice

Would you listen to United as One again? Why?

Probably not. While I've enjoyed the series, the narrator killed this book for me.

What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

About 10 minutes into the book I almost stopped listening due to the male narrator. This is a book that is supposed to be from a teenage boy perspective, so why does he sound like a 60-year-old smoker. It only got worse with the voices used for all the other characters. I do think this narrator would be amazing in a spy novel or some older police detective role, but this was horrible. Even the female narrator sounded way too old for the character of Six. I did complete the book as I wanted to finish the series, however it's not one I would enjoy listening to again.

I must have read all of these books at least a dozen times and the only thing I hope for is at least one or two more book...the after story if you would

I waited forever this story and I'm a little disappointed at the ending. Decent read.

5 stars to everyone but Neil

Only Neil Kaplan can make teenagers sound like chain-smoking middle-aged men. All of the other performers were great though!

"United as One" it is NOT

The first book in this series was fantastic. The next was also very good. After listening to those, I wanted to know the whole story, so I got the rest of the Lorean titles. I feel like the series really degraded as it went along from that point until it culminated in this disaster of a finale; not unlike a syndicated TV show.
There are many things I would complain about, but in order to avoid any spoilers, I'll just say that "United As One" is the opposite of what actually happens. This is very much the John show and probably should have been titled "Sorry to Have Introduced You to All Those Other Characters, But Now Forget About Them and Let's Return Our Complete Attention to Number Four, Who Has Really Developed Into an Irritatingly Self Centered $@*% with a Propensity for Making Bad Decisions", except that title is way too long, so I guess they just went with a title that describes what SHOULD have happened.
The ending is so bad that I'd say if you are trudging through the last couple books waiting to see what happens, don't! Whatever ending you can think up in your mind is better than this one.

great ending

Such an amazing book series. It had me hooked from the very first to the very last book. The series never got dull boring or repetitive.

This is a very well written story.

I would give it higher marks if it didn't take the Lord's name in vain so many times. The first few books cussing at all, but the last few books has a lot more cussing and it seems out of place.
