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!
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 loved the first book and the second book is just as good. The story is quick and fun and suspenseful. I laughed out loud more than once. Austin and Max are hysterical. I really enjoyed the book. I hate cliff hanger endings. Hopefully Mr. Evans won't make us wait too long for book 3.
Good, solid story. Moves fast!
He does about 20 different voices, so well, and so seamlessly that you forget its one person doing it!
This is far better than the Twilight. For one they have character developments that are believable and more than just a love story.
This book is a part 2. I recommend reading the other one first.
There are many quirks about this book that are very enjoyable.
Yes I would and will.
The whole thing. Love the excitement, the intrigue, the whole story line.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

I highly recommend this book you will enjoy it.
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.
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.
