    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.

    Where does Rise of the Elgen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Some audiobook narrators are difficult to listen to. Berman's performance brings this story to life. After both reading and hearing the first Vey book, I recommend listening to this over reading it. It's just so fun to hear!


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

    Might compare to Harry Potter, or I Am Number Four. Sci-Fi brought closer to home.

  • Treason

    Story
    (678)

    Lanik Mueller is a "rad" - radical regenerative - a freak who can regenerate injured flesh...and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals, or the means of escape, iron offers the promise of freedom through the chance to build a spacecraft. But it is a promise which may never be fulfilled, as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination.

    Barry says: "Entirely enjoyable"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I know OSC loves Rudnicki as the 'voice' of his novels. It's hard for me to listen to so much character self-interspection, especially in Rudnicki's low bass. It's like listening to someone mumbling to himself about himself. Who wants to listen in on that?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Haven't managed to finish this yet. I'm sure there's a good point to the story that's worth the telling.

    To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes- I recommend this book- and especially this audiobook. First, it's a good story- told cleanly. Looking forward to movies. Good going RPE.
    Second- Audio narrators can make or break a story. Berman's narration excells! He makes each character unique. You can 'feel' their essence. His transitions seem effortless and are easy to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Berman bantering the teens voices back and forth - made me laugh as I could 'see' each individual character and love each of them.
