Nine and his Cêpan, Sandor, had a different strategy for evading the Mogadorians. Instead of living on the run, they hid in plain sight. For five years, the pair lived in Chicago. There they built themselves a sanctuary where they could train for the coming war and where Nine could hone his newly developing Legacies. Nine began to think he could have some semblance of a normal life…but he couldn’t hide from the Mogadorians forever, and one day they found a way to trap him that he never saw coming. Being held captive changes a person—even a Lorien. And when Nine finally escaped after months of being imprisoned by the Mogadorians, he was ferocious, reckless, and desperate for revenge.
