    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.

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

    Have not read book, but I think this Narrator is hands down part of the success of this book for me.


    What other book might you compare Rise of the Elgen to and why?

    Nothing like it, that is what makes it so good.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    His ability to portray so many characters so distinctly and with such personality, even the females. He is 5 stars!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The name is great!


    Any additional comments?

    I am a parent and this book is the kind of book I want my children to read. No swearing, sex, or even excessive/unnecessary violence. Great life lessons taught in an exciting story.

    Who will survive the rise of the Wyrm Lord? Dark rumors have surfaced that Paragor is seeking the ancient Wyrm Lord to crush Alleble and finally take the crown for himself. When Aidan Thomas’ new friend—bright headstrong Antoinette Reed—is called to The Realm, Aidan solicits her help to rescue his best friend. But will Antoinette follow the one true king. . . or the evil Paragor?

    Would you listen to The Rise of the Wyrm Lord again? Why?

    after the power listen, i would need a break before listening to again.


    What other book might you compare The Rise of the Wyrm Lord to and why?

    This book is unique.


    What does Wayne Thomas Batson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Struggled with the narrator at first, but adapted when the pace picked up.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The name is sufficient.
