Michael must save his mother - and protect his powers - in the electric sequel to the number-one New York Times best-selling Michael Vey, from Richard Paul Evans.
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 the Electroclan meets new, powerful foes and faces their greatest challenge yet as Michael learns the extent of the Elgen’s rise in power - and the truth of their plan to “restructure” the world.

Short, Simple, No Spoilers
Michael and clan pick up where the first left off, on the run to save his mother and stop the Elgen plan from "Hatching". The romance between Michael and Taylor is more in the background, yet other characters are fleshed out more creating new interest.
This series is a mixture of Firestarter (Stephen King) meets Percy Jackson. Excellent series for boys grades 4-12. Enjoy!
I don't know; I do very little print
I thought the stinky guy was intriguing
keeping it moving along; didn't get sleepy from sitting and reading
When the stinky guy sacrificed himself; also the friendships were moving and how they all stuck together.
These are really good books. I highly recommend. The premise of the power with the rats was very unique, kind of disgusting and very interesting all at the same time.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

Up all night listening ....check
Absolutely worth a credit ...check
I highly recommend this book you will enjoy it.
Most of the events of this book take place in South America. It seems largely accurate in it's descriptions of places, but the setting change is so jarring from the first book. Michael Vey doesn't stay in Idaho, or even in America, but takes the fight to the evil ElGen corporation.
Again, Michael's condition is largely ignored throughout the book. Which may be the point. Dr Hatch is again back as the main villian and the ElGen have developed new weapons and tactics in the 13 hours since we left our heroes at the end of the first book.
The setting change, while jarring, does move the book away from the cliches of the first book. The heroes are virtuous to a fault and the bad guys are evil to the hilt.
All in all it remains a typical teen hero fantasy in an unusual setting.
It was a fun listen through out the whole book, I've listened to this book three times now, and I still enjoyed listing to it each time!!!
Better than the first. Its now 5 am and I have to go to work exhausted but was worth it. If you start don't expect to stop.
I liked the ways powers were used in new and interesting ways. Also some good plot twists. Didn't like cliff hanger ending.
