Rise of the Elgen: Michael Vey, Book 2

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Rats! This story just keeps getting better!"
    If you could sum up Rise of the Elgen in three words, what would they be?

    Action, Hunter, Electric


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rise of the Elgen?

    I love knowing there is a secret society trying to help them and they are relying on the elctroclan to "Save the World"


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first - but after listening to all of this series now - he was my favorite out of all of them. He captured the the accents of some of the characters I believed they should have been - gave it a real spy feel to it.


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

    I just enjoyed this book a lot! Very entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    First of all, I enjoyed reading this book - not only do I have the hard copy, but I both on kindle. Then because my 14 yr old boy is academically behind and I know he could relate to this character - I love that I can download the book to audible for him to listen to the story on his phone.

    "Family car trip pleasor!"
    Would you listen to Rise of the Elgen again? Why?

    Fun story with lots of adventure the entire family can appreciate.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    After reading all the books in the series, you feel like all the characters are friends of yours.


    Any additional comments?

    This book made the 6 hour car ride seem to fly by. When we had to stop for driving breaks, the kids complained that the book had to be stopped for few minutes and were anxious to start it again as soon as we were all back in the car.

    "More please!!"

    Great story , Michael and his Electroclan vs Elgen! You cannot stop cheering for Michael and his clan as they clear each new obstacle. I felt like I was right there as Michael extended his search for him mother. I really enjoyed seeing Wade transform from a bulling jerk to a stand up, dependable friend.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you try another book from Richard Paul Evans and/or Fred Berman?

    Absolutely. Going to finish out the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rise of the Elgen?

    My favorite moment is Michael's reunion with his mother.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fred Berman?

    Mr. Berman is a wonderful narrator. With as many different voices and accents that are involved in this particular book, he does a great job and is consistent throughout.


    Do you think Rise of the Elgen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Well, it already has one, so yes.

    "Written as a kids book but great for adults too."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rise of the Elgen to be better than the print version?

    Fred Berman does another oustanding job.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rise of the Elgen?

    Trouble at the Star Source plant in Peru!


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    Voices of Michael, Austin, Dr. Hatch and Jack.


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

    It's a nice change. A clean book for teens but really for all ages. I am not a science fiction lover at all and love this series. Richard Paul Evean is really onto something here and a big thanks to Mercury Ink for producing this series.The books make you laugh and cry.So nice to see kid's actually make the decision in life to "do what is right" .


    Any additional comments?

    A great read and I can't wait for the remaing 4 books in the series to come out.
