Teens, parents, teachers and community leaders concerned with the dark and violent content in today's popular young adult novels can find an alternative in the second installment of the Michael Vey series by Richard Paul Evans ("The Christmas Box"): "Michael Vey 2: The Rise of the Elgen."
Last year, the first book of the Michael Vey series was an overwhelming success, reaching #1 on NY Times Bestseller List (Teen Fiction).
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Evans is the winner of the American Mothers Book Award, two first place Storytelling World Awards for his children’s books, the Romantic Times Best Women’s Novel of the Year Award, and two Wilber Awards for Fiction. Evans received the Washington Times Humanitarian of the Century Award and the Volunteers of America National Empathy Award for his work helping abused children.
