Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

Written by Richard Paul Evans

Michael Vey is a unique individual. Not only does he have Tourette’s Syndrome, but he also is full of electricity that he can use at any time, much like a super power. He also becomes friends with Taylor Ridley, a young cheerleader who can use electricity to reboot people’s brains. Together with their friend, Ostin, they discover that Michael and Taylor were 2 of 17 children born in Pasadena General Hospital during a period of time when weird things were happening to the babies. When Michael’s mom gets kidnapped by a secret organization, the trio can’t help but wonder if there are more electrically charged people like themselves, and someone wants them dead. Will Mchael, Taylor, and Ostin be able to save Michael’s mom and escape the clutches of the people after them?

A fast-paced action adventure. The characters are well-developed and entertaining. The plot is well-crafted and does a good job of holding the reader’s interest. Readers who like science fiction, adventure, and good versus evil books will enjoy reading this book.
