The hair-raising action continues for Michael Vey in this charged third installment of the #1 New York Times best-selling series.
In the third book of the electrifying Michael Vey series, Michael and his friends must continue to fight the Elgen and try to disrupt their plans to rule the world.

When a series has a good narrator, it is just not wise to change. The narrator for the first two books was just GREAT. I felt he was Michael Vey, his voice was just perfect, he struck the right note—youth coming of age. Very, very, very disappointed in the new narrator. While he has good alternate voices, his main delivery is flat and uninteresting. The book is worth reading, but the narration rather spoiled it for me.
Michael Vey, because he is has a good character.
The first narrator who read books one and two.
Great Vey book
The morals within the story
Why was a new narrator used for this book? The new narrator was such a disappointment - while he used nice foreign accents, there was little distinction among the main characters.
Yes, several times.
The series builds upon each other with just the right amount of suspense & adventure for a family to enjoy together. This (series) should be made into a movie.
The ending- the electro-clan is back together and going off to a new adventure!
This narrator did not have the range as the previous narrator for the other 2 books- made it really hard to adjust to especially at first when you are "used to" other voices.
Consistent story and character development
The first two books. Follows the story progression
No offence to the new narrator, I'm sorry but its like changing the lead actor in a movie. He didn't pull it off. Needs to be re-done by the original. He got the characters right. Unique voices. You knew who each was by the voice. New narrator did a poor job defining each characters voice from the others.
Definately, at leat til I heard the new narrator.
Please get the original narrator back. So disappointing
Richard Paul Evans is on a roll! I have read and listened to Michael Vey Prisoner of Cell 25 and Rise of the Elgen. The whole family loves this series and Battle of the Ampere does not disappoint. Action packed and full of life lessons this is a great series for young people or the young at heart. I am proud to be called a Veyniac.
Michael Vey is my favorite person in the books because he has respect for his elders, Yes sir, no sir and calling all adults by Mr. or Mrs. shows that he was brought up by a loving and respectful parent. With all he has been through and is going through it would be easy to become bitter and angry but with the love of his friends he just keeps going.
While the narration was good, I didn't think he had the full grasp of the characters and range of voice that Fred Berman had on the previous books.
Yes. I tried too. ultimately it took me 4 tries to listen to it all.
The author just seems to want to drag this book out forever. Although talented to a certain extent, this author does not have the enduring ability to make this a seven book series. I thought that a trilogy was adequate. I am constantly annoyed by all the flaws and open ends that of things that are not really possible. I don't mean all the "electric" things. I mean occurrences that happen and he doesn't think of all the loopholes in the story that make it unbelievable. However, my kids love it and so I am stuck reading another book with them. Ugh.
I must say that Kirby Heyborne made this audio book come to life. Great job!
It was a great continuation of the Michael Vey story. Great action.
I don't think I have listened to Kirby Heyborne before. This was a great experience.
Almost. I had to take breaks to work. :-)
Excellent narration and great story. I truly enjoyed this third book in the series.
it had it's good moments, it just didn't have me on the edge of my chair like book 2 did. But I can see myself listening to this book one or two more times.
