Michael Vey and the Electroclan are recovering after the Battle of the Ampere when they are sent to Taiwan to rescue Jade Dragon. She is an autistic savant who has come up with a formula that the Elgen covet so they can make more electric children. Before they undertake the mission they are reunited with their families and have some r&r at a ranch somewhere in the Southwest. They recruit a new member to the Electroclan who had been a enemy previously to help them rescue Jade Dragon. They are captured and escape learning new powers and new languages. They rescue Jade Dragon and get some bad news, which will start the next book.
Did I enjoy it? Yes, Evans has crafted another exciting with a theme of family at its core. Each of the Electroclan is tight with family in some shape.
What is with the title of the review? A theme that has run through all of the Michael Vey books is family. Family is not just blood. Sister Sledge had a hit with the song We Are Family in 1979.
