Book Review: Michael Vey: Rise of the Elgen

This was an amazing sequel to Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell 25. Normally, sequels can be a little disappoint, but not in this case. The second book holds up to the first's glory! The same characters are back and better than ever. They are growing and maturing and getting stronger in their powers. If you haven't read the first book yet now would be a good time because the second book is just as good. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Synopsis:

I rolled over to my back, struggling for breath. The pain continued to pulse through my body—a heavy throb followed by a sharp, crisp sting.
 
The man said, “Trust me, there are worse things in this world than Cell 25.”

Michael, Taylor, Ostin, and the rest of the Electroclan have escaped from the Elgen Academy in Pasadena and are headed back to Idaho to plan their next move. But what’s waiting for them there will change everything.

After using their wits and powers to narrowly escape an Elgen trap, a mysterious voice leads the Electroclan to the jungles of Peru in search of Michael’s mother. Once there, they discover that Dr. Hatch and the Elgen are far more powerful than anyone realizes; entire countries have begun to fall under their control. Only the Electroclan and an anonymous voice now stand in the way of the Elgen’s plan for global domination.

But is the voice that Michael is following really an ally, or is it just another Elgen trap?
