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.
