Overview

The hair-raising action continues for Michael Vey in this charged third installment of the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Michael, Taylor, Ostin and the rest of the Electroclan have destroyed the largest of the Elgen Starxource plants, but now they’re scattered across the Amazon jungle. The Elgen have joined forces with the Peruvian army to capture the Electroclan, and only Michael has managed to remain free. With his friends due to stand trial for terrorism—a charge that may carry the death penalty—Michael will need all his wits and his abilities if he’s to save them.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Dr. Hatch and his loyal Electric Children have seized control of the E.S. Ampere—the super yacht the Elgen use as their headquarters. With the Elgen fleet now under his control, Hatch heads back to Peru to pick up his army and then begin his quest for global domination.

Michael will have to free his friends then find a way to stop Hatch, but the organization behind the mysterious voice that has guided him to this point has been compromised. Hatch knows Michael and the Electroclan are coming. And he’s ready for them.

Can the Electroclan win the battle of the Ampere? Or has Michael’s luck finally run out?

Children's Literature - Magi Evans
Having escaped Dr. Hatch after destroying the Peruvian Starxource powerplant, Michael is taken in by the Amacarra tribe in the jungles of Peru. There, he meets another electric teen, Tessa. But though his mother is now safe, many of Michael’s Electroclan friends are in the hands of the Peruvian army and are being accused of terrorism. Michael, Tessa, and Jaime, the employee of the mysterious Voice who has been helping them all along, stage a daring rescue. Meanwhile, Hatch and his loyal electric teens take over the yacht Ampere, the Elgen corporate headquarters, imprisoning Elgen board chairman Schema and several defiant board members. Now Hatch plans to bring the Elgen ships to Lima for supplies before taking over the island of Tuvalu and establishing a new base. It is up to the Electroclan to destroy the Ampere and stop Hatch from his plan to take over the world. Like the first two books in the “Michael Vey” series, this third book involves repeated captures of the Electroclan by the Elgen, followed by repeated escapes, for non-stop action while readers continue to learn about these electric teens, their powers, and their relationships. The friends are extremely loyal and supportive of one another, and their varied talents contribute to ingenious methods of outwitting Hatch, keeping readers intrigued and charged up for the next book promising more danger and excitement for the Electroclan. Reviewer: Magi Evans; Ages 14 up.

Michael Vey 3
I’m Michael Vey. Last night I had a really weird dream. I was back home in Idaho, sitting at the table with the cool kids in the cafeteria at Meridian High School. (For the record, I’m not one of the cool kids.) My girlfriend, Taylor (who is one of the cool kids), was sitting on my right side in her cheerleading outfit. My best friend, Ostin, was on my left, eating cheese pizza and garlic bread. The rest of the table was filled with a bunch of cheerleaders and basketball players. As usual, Ostin and I looked as out of place as chocolate doughnuts at a Weight Watchers meeting.

The school’s basketball team was joking with me like they did at Maddie’s party, calling me “Li’l Norris”—short for little Chuck Norris—and trying to outdo one another with their Li’l Norris jokes.

Drew, the basketball team’s star point guard, said, “Li’l Norris is so tough, dark is afraid of him.”

“Yeah?” said Spencer. “Li’l Norris is so tough that the road in front of Meridian High used to be called Li’l Norris Street, but it was changed because no one crosses Li’l Norris and lives.”

Everyone laughed except Ostin, who looked confused. “I don’t think it was ever really called Li’l Norris Street,” he said.

“Shhh,” I said. “It’s a joke.”

“Yeah?” said Drew. “Monsters check under their beds to make sure Li’l Norris isn’t there.”

“I got it; I got it,” Spencer said. “Li’l Norris is so tough that he died ten years ago but Death is too afraid to tell him.”

Everyone was laughing when a low, angry voice behind me said, “If Li’l Norris is so tough, why is he hiding in the jungle?”

I turned around to see Dr. Hatch standing behind me. I was paralyzed with fear. Suddenly everyone else vanished and it was just the two of us. Hatch leaned forward, close enough that I could feel his breath and see his eyes through the dark lenses of his sunglasses.

“I’m going to find you, Vey,” he whispered. “And when I do, I’m going to hurt you.”

That’s when I woke up in the jungle.
