Taylor Cook thought of the invasion as just a bad dream. It had ended over a year ago, and none of the fighting happened anywhere near her small town. She'd heard about teens who were suddenly developing incredible abilities, but she had never really believed it. Not until the day she discovered she was one of them - a human with Legacies. Now Taylor is being sent off to the Human Garde Academy. A place where teens from across the globe can learn to control their new powers and discover what they are truly capable of. There they will be trained by the Loric - the very same people who helped win the war and who are also responsible for unleashing the Legacies on the planet. As part of this new generation of Garde, Taylor and the others will one day be able to use their gifts to protect mankind. But not everyone thinks that's the best use for their talents. There are people who have different plans for the students and who will stop at nothing to get what they want. Generation One is the first book in a thrilling new series set in the world of the bestselling I Am Number Four series.
