    Michael was born with special electrical powers - and he’s not the only one. His friend Taylor has them too, and so do other kids around the world. With Michael’s friend Ostin, a techno-genius, they form the Electroclan, an alliance meant to protect them from a powerful group, the growing Order of Elgen, who are out to destroy them. The leader of the Elgen, Dr. Hatch, has kidnapped Michael’s mother, and time is running out. After narrowly escaping an Elgen trap, Ostin’s discovery of bizarre “rat fires” in South America leads the gang to the jungles of Peru.

    What did you love best about Rise of the Elgen?

    Good, solid story. Moves fast!


    What does Fred Berman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does about 20 different voices, so well, and so seamlessly that you forget its one person doing it!

    Dane and Mandy, a popular magic act for 40 years, are tragically separated by a car wreck that claims Mandy’s life—or so everyone thinks. Even as Dane mourns and tries to rebuild his life without her, Mandy, supposedly dead, awakes in the present as the19-year-old she was in 1970.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Illusion to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print edition (that's why I buy Audiobooks!).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Illusion?

    When you figure out what's going on!


    What does Frank Peretti bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Huge improvement in HIS voice performance! Quite frankly, in his earlier works I found his voice shrill and irritating, but the years, or training, have transformed him into an outstanding voice talent! I didn't even realize it WAS him 'til 1/3 of the way through when I checked to see "who this great narrator" was?


    Any additional comments?

    Really good! Intriguing, clever story-line rivals his earliest works!

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....
