"Michael and the rest of the Electroclan are facing their greatest crisis yet. The resistance movement has been compromised. The safe house has been destroyed. The voice is in hiding, and they have no idea if their families are alive... or dead. What they do know is that the Elgen won't stop until they've destroyed the Electroclan. And the Elgen are on the move. They've launched a new assault on the small island nation of Tuvalu. If they are successful, it will be the first domino to fall as part of Admiral-General Hatch's master plan to take over the rest of the world. But cracks are beginning to appear in the ranks of the Elgen elite, and while Hatch still rules with an iron fist, there are signs of dissent. Could he find himself facing enemies within and without? Or will he strike first? If the Elgen are beginning to turn on one another, can Michael and the rest of the Electroclan use it to their advantage? Or is it just a trap to destroy the Electroclan once and for all? The stakes have never been higher, and Michael and his friends are about to be tested in ways they never imagined."--Dust jacket flap.

best series i have read absolutely love it

Not our favorite book out of the series, but still good. Not a lot of forward motion in the storyline, likely because the next book will be action packed! We can't wait for the next book to come out this fall!

Generally a great series but most of this book was just set up for the sixth in the series, with very little real action.

This Young Adult Book should be read not only by Young Adults but by adults and Seniors too. This book is the fifth in a series of seven. Compared to the other books there was less action but like many classics such as "Charlotte's Web" and "The Wizard of Oz," it is very philosophical.

The author, Evans uses the villain Dr. Hatch to demonstrate the evil of craving power. "Let's say he is suddenly the king of the world. What is he going to do with it that he can't do now? Is his food going to taste better? Is the weather going to be better?"

Likewise Evans's good characters espouse good values and make for very good examples to readers. All in all a great book - and yes, every reader will be waiting with bated breath for Book 6 since this one ends in a cliffhanger.

“I don’t get it. I mean, what’s power? Let’s say he’s suddenly the king of the world. What is he going to do with it that he can’t do now? Is his food going to taste better? Is the weather going to be nicer? Will love feel better? I just don’t understand that mentality.“ (147)

“The whole world just keeps trying to go faster and faster. Except for here. Nature is never in a hurry. You can’t make a flower bloom faster. They don’t read magazines to make themselves prettier; they just know they are.” (147)

”A pioneer life. Simple…The world has gotten so complex. I sometimes wonder if all these labor-saving devices actually just make our lives more difficult. You know what I mean?… It’s not like all these gadgets and appliances have slowed people down or anything. It just means they have to do more.” (147)
