Michael must save his mother—and protect his powers—in the electric sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krazyangel | 2/18/2014

    " This was a great book. Would say read the first one so you will know what is going on with the people in the story. I sure hope there is another book coming soon. If so I can't wait to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri | 2/3/2014

    " Didn't like the ending. Would recommend reading the books when the series is complete. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celeste | 2/2/2014

    " A decent and clean read for teens. The story line is good and entertaining. I think this is one of the better young adult authors out there. I just wish there was a bit more depth and more superior writing like many of the classics. I do recommend it although it does not go on my classics list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terrel | 2/1/2014

    " This book was amazing. The characters were very well formed, they had individual personalities, and they seemed very real overall. The plot and mystery of the 'Elgen' was revealed at a perfect pace. The cliff-hanger ending made it so I almost died when I learned that there was no third book out yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avery | 1/29/2014

    " I dont think Ive ever hated a protagonist more than Dr. Hatch. So narcissistic and pretty much a modern-day Caligula. However, Michael and friends(and Mom) triumphs once again. Ended in a major cliffhanger. Need some info on the 3rd book :P. 4 outta 5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Wight | 1/27/2014

    " Great second book! Really enjoyed, sad that I had to wait another year for the 3rd one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Allred | 1/25/2014

    " Even better than the first! Cant wait till number 3 hurry up please Richard Paul Evans! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kailee _*A Positive Mental Sickness*_ | 1/24/2014

    " One thing... GAhh I hate cliff hangers............. >:[ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mykle | 1/21/2014

    " I thought it was a great book. In some spots it is kind of suspenseful, but I like those parts. The ending is really dumb because he just gets captured again. When I was reading I kind of stopped so I don't know exactly everything. I would recommend this book to everyone about 12 and up. I don't know why I say 12 and up but it seems reasonable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beckarado | 1/20/2014

    " Suspense. Now to wait for the third book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherice | 1/9/2014

    " Second book in the Michael Vey series and I was pleased. The characters are even more developed, but not for children. Nothing morally objectionable, but it is pretty graphic in explaining the brainwashing Dr. Hatch performs. Huge cliffhanger, though.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 12/8/2013

    " Good follow up book, looking forward to the third one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob Suarez | 12/4/2013

    " DON'T HESITATE TO READ IT DANG IT!!!! SO MUCH ACTION SO MUCH SUSPENSE. I WAS ON MY FEET THE WHOLE TIME. THERE BETTER BE MORE THAN 3 books... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi Krueger | 11/9/2013

    " Good clean book. Teenagers would enjoy this series. Excited to see how the story unfolds in book 3. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 11/2/2013

    " Just as good as the first book, maybe even better. I can't wait for the next book to come out! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Mathies | 10/13/2013

    " FANTASTIC- read it in a week. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 9/12/2013

    " Second in this fascinating adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Challice | 8/22/2013

    " This is a great series... hate that I have to wait another year for the next and hopefully last! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 8/3/2013

    " My rating for the first in the series was harsh; this is generous. I liked this one better than the first. Evans kept it fresh thru to the end. My 9-yr. old son loooved the book and we read it simultaneously so that may have contributed to my liking it more too... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Erekson | 7/26/2013

    " I still like the story, but have a hard time with the ending. It just stopped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Vanorman | 7/1/2013

    " This book was a page turner for me. I enjoyed it more than the first book. Now I just need the third to come out... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reagan | 5/22/2013

    " This book was one of the best books I've ever read (just as the first) one thing that I didn't like about this book was that it was just too short and I would have liked it better if it was a little bigger. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristie | 5/3/2013

    " I really wouldn't call these children's books. They have way to much violence, gore and adult themes, very disapointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruthie | 3/31/2013

    " OMG THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!! The only thing that stinks is that I have to wait another year or so for the next one :( but keep up the good work Richard Paul Evans!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky Nelson | 9/26/2012

    " Kind of disappointed after book #1 in the series. Too predictable and just not much substance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcia | 8/14/2012

    " FANTASTIC -- Action packed and riviting -- and I'm not even halfway thru the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Chesser | 8/9/2012

    " Better than the first. Fast paced and action packed. Very intense. "
