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.

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
    "Semper Fi! Bravery, Sacrifice and Honor"

    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.

    Story
    "Not as good as book one"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Kids around 12 to 15 maybe, but I thought it was a little mean. Not funny like the first one.


    What was most disappointing about Richard Paul Evans’s story?

    The characters did very mean things.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None.

    Story
    "Evans and Berman continue an excellent story!"
    Where does Rise of the Elgen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


    What other book might you compare Rise of the Elgen to and why?

    Might compare to Harry Potter, or I Am Number Four. Sci-Fi brought closer to home.


    Any additional comments?

    What comes next? Waiting for it!

    Story
    "Wow! Wow! Wow! It just got even better."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rise of the Elgen to be better than the print version?

    Have not read book, but I think this Narrator is hands down part of the success of this book for me.


    What other book might you compare Rise of the Elgen to and why?

    Nothing like it, that is what makes it so good.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    His ability to portray so many characters so distinctly and with such personality, even the females. He is 5 stars!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The name is great!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "a heart thumper"
    What did you love best about Rise of the Elgen?

    This continues the story from the first book. Swiftly paced, it covers a lot of ground with a few good surprises.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Michael Vey exemplifies the virtues and strengths of a hero.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    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!
