I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We feel like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real.....

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in becoming like you. We have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know. And they will follow us until we are all caught.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.

They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.

My take: 3 looks
This is a very good YA book. It is gripping and suspenseful and I can see why they made a movie of it, which I am now interested in seeing. It follows the epic tale of two worlds at war. The Mogadorians decimate every planet they inhabit and continue to have to overtake other planets for their survival. When they overtook the people of Lorien, the Loriens sent 9 "Guards" to Earth for the future reinhabitation of their own planet.

Full of intriguing alien "truths"  and nonstop action, this was a very intriguing book and I will read the next in the series.
