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 on the run. The Elgen have teamed up with the Peruvian army to capture them, and only Michael remains 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 seven ships of the Elgen fleet now under his control, Hatch heads back to Peru to gather his army and begin his quest for global domination. Michael must free his friends then find a way to stop Hatch, but 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?
