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.

the narroration is excellent. the story is strained to the point that i cannot fathom what would actually drive these kids to keep going on the path of guerilla warfare across the globe.
Without audiobooks my mind would not have known nearly a fraction of what I have learned!
The series is all of five stars, but they choose the wrong person to narrate this one.
this story committed that most egregious sin of audio books end replaced an established talented narrator with some hack that made this one of the most excruciating audio books I have ever listen to to.
the story itself was ok. Not as good as the first two but much like movies that have a long run often with book series the third book is a bit of a dragon. What made it truly horrible was the narrator. This man should never be allowed to under the spoken word again.
his characters we're almost totally one dimensional. In fact, with the exception of those who spoke with a Hispanic accent, Dr hatch, and the chairman, they almost all had the same voice.
my recommendation is do not even bother with this audiobook. Go to the library, check out the hard copy and take the time and read it. When you're done with that go get the Jade Dragon on audible because they went back to the original narrator for that one.
All the other Michael Vey novels. This is my second time reading this particular book (along with the first two).
The accents of Himey (sp), and the other foreigners. I loved it!
I didn't like the switch up of the narrator from this first two books to this one. I had gotten used to his voice, so this new guy turned me off. But I got used to him, and I truly enjoyed the different voices.
After one minute of listening at normal speed, I knew I wouldn't make it through the book. He sounds normal at 1.25 (a setting in the Audible app). I wonder if it was just badly produced.
