The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

Long ago the planet Lorien went into hibernation. 9 children destined to become the most powerful elders seen by Lorien and their Cepan (protectors, trainers, ect.) came to Earth after a year-long flight through space. Now they are hunted by the Mogadorians. If they are to bring thier planet back to life, they MUST find each other, unite, and win the war against the Mogadorians. Numbers 1 through 3 have already died. 4,6,7,9 and 10 have been found. But just as things seem to be going well, the Mogadorians bring an even more dangerous enemy into play.

This had an interesting plot, which was made even better from having two characters with alternating chapters, (much like the Seekers series, if you've read those.) Although it gets ever so slightly confusing having the alternating chapters, it adds a lot to the story. You should be able to follow the action because you’ll be reading about different groups of characters. The book was very exciting and had a great storyline. It ended with a cliff-hanger that seemed VERY far from the end of the story, which makes me think there is a sequel coming out.
