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.

What a non-stop, action packed ride! It never stopped, and the ending is so true to real life.
Real life does not tie nice little bows on plot points, nor does it let you know the answers to all your questions. Real life leads you from one deep question to another deep question. It is so nice to read a book that obviously will have a sequal, but also treats you like real life does.
It is also great to read about characters that are real and learning. They make hard choices and put others needs before their own. There are great life lessons that can be learned from this, and my kids will love it. It's already on the kindle and mp3 of my 11 year old daughter. She'll have it done soon.
I love that young adault books are being writen that show true good/evil conflict and good examples of how to deal with it.
Kids around 12 to 15 maybe, but I thought it was a little mean. Not funny like the first one.
The characters did very mean things.
Some audiobook narrators are difficult to listen to. Berman's performance brings this story to life. After both reading and hearing the first Vey book, I recommend listening to this over reading it. It's just so fun to hear!
Might compare to Harry Potter, or I Am Number Four. Sci-Fi brought closer to home.
What comes next? Waiting for it!
Yes I would and will.
The whole thing. Love the excitement, the intrigue, the whole story line.
It is better for me because I am able to listen to the book while I am doing other things instead of the radio.
I like the use of success principles in the book. It is a fiction story but uses very real principles of success that is important in our lives
I wanted to but was not able to.
Could not put this down even better than the other down in 2 days! When is the next one coming out... not soon enough
40yr old Male with children. Physician. I like books for youth because they are clean and keeps me in touch with my kids.
Have not read book, but I think this Narrator is hands down part of the success of this book for me.
Nothing like it, that is what makes it so good.
His ability to portray so many characters so distinctly and with such personality, even the females. He is 5 stars!
The name is great!
I am a parent and this book is the kind of book I want my children to read. No swearing, sex, or even excessive/unnecessary violence. Great life lessons taught in an exciting story.
This continues the story from the first book. Swiftly paced, it covers a lot of ground with a few good surprises.
Michael Vey exemplifies the virtues and strengths of a hero.
Yes, this story moves from danger to danger and held my interest. Sometimes I had to take a break because the antagonist speaks with such oily propaganda I had to shake it off before I could continue.
Fun for the whole family! My preteen children and my teenagers alike loved both Michael Vey books. And yes, even though its a kid's story I have to admit I enjoyed it too. The characters are well developed and the plot is intense with a lot of action. I should mention that the narrator did an excellent job, and was easy to listen to.
My kids keep asking if the next book in the series has been published. We hope it will be soon!
