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.

    "ok-not his best"

    weaker storyline than the first book. its almost like he didnt want to try to hard to "fix" the problems in timeline and explanarion.
    usually an incredibly descriptive author. this is a different genre for him

    "Rise of the Elgen"

    I really loved how the story draws you in. The tension between Zeus and Jack gets intense but then takes a different twist. The ending is clever and draws you in. Can't wait to start reading book 3!

    Story
    "Part 2, and Dr Hatch is still a douche!"
    What made the experience of listening to Rise of the Elgen the most enjoyable?

    Again, all the different character voices. Austin's was my favorite. He was so excitable :)


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Bowl. Weird, right? Just to picture something like that is crazy


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

    yes, part1 of this series. There is no comparison, they are the same


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

    Again, no extreme reaction in either direction. Just a really, really good book

    Story
    "Watch out for all the rats."

    Another adventure into the land of the Electriclan and Elgen. I enjoyed this story and for the most part it flew by. The only part I felt was a little on the long side was when the story was from Dr. Hatch's point of view. I think Dr. Hatch's megalomaniac part should have been shortened some, this caused me to only give the book 4 stars. It's fascinating to see what different powers the kids have and how they grow, there was also great character development. Story does leave at a cliff hanger, but I plan on reading more anyway. Narrator is excellent as usual, I have always enjoyed Fred Berman.

    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.
