Quick apology here. Back in June, the book club date did not work for another member, and it was never properly rescheduled. It just so happens that it was also supposed to be a combined meeting with the March/April book to also be discussed. And with the next Michael Vey book coming out sooner than I originally thought (making it a possible September/October choice). I think it would be a good idea to revisit these books (since I know both members never finished 3) for August/September.
Rise of the Elgen
In the second installment of the Michael Vey series, Michael must rescue his mother from one of the Elgen’s several compounds. But the Elgen know where the Electroclan is and after narrowing escaping a trap, the Electroclan is led to jungles of Peru by a mysterious voice. There are several questions, but one stands out….is this all a trap?
Battle of Ampere
Michael and the rest of the Electroclan are now scattered in the Amazon Jungle. Both the Elgen and Peruvian army are searching from them and Michael is the only one who manages to escape capture. Now Michael must find a way to save his friends from possible death. Meanwhile, Doctor Hatch starts his plans for global domination.

He also said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his possessions. And he called him and said to him, ‘What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your management, for you can no longer be manager. And the manager said to himself, ‘What shall I do, since my master is taking the management away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. I have decided what to do, so that when I am removed from management, people may receive me into their houses.’ So, summoning his master’s debtors one by one, he said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ He said, ‘A hundred measures of oil.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’ Then he said to another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ He said, ‘A hundred measures of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill, and write eighty.’ The master commended the dishonest manager for his shrewdness. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings. “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
