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.

    "Good Series for Boys"

    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!

    "Excellent!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rise of the Elgen to be better than the print version?

    I don't know; I do very little print


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I thought the stinky guy was intriguing


    What does Fred Berman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    keeping it moving along; didn't get sleepy from sitting and reading


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the stinky guy sacrificed himself; also the friendships were moving and how they all stuck together.


    Any additional comments?

    These are really good books. I highly recommend. The premise of the power with the rats was very unique, kind of disgusting and very interesting all at the same time.

    "Great addition to the series. (Possible Spoiler)"

    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.

    What did you love best about Rise of the Elgen?

    Good, solid story. Moves fast!


    What does Fred Berman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does about 20 different voices, so well, and so seamlessly that you forget its one person doing it!


    Any additional comments?

    Great fun!

    Story
    "The saga continues"
    If you could sum up Rise of the Elgen in three words, what would they be?

    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.


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

    There are many quirks about this book that are very enjoyable.

    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.
