I really enjoyed this book. It was fun. It was creative and I loved the characters. I fell in love immediately with Michael Vey and his friends, Taylor and Ostin (pronounced Austin). Equally, I despised the evil people. All of their special powers were awesome and well thought out and well described in detail. A real good read for complete fun! Richard Paul Evans has the fantasy and adventure part down pat!! I hated to see it end and I really am excited for the next book.
The only thing that bothered me was the simply fact of how quickly the bad guys located the good guys. It seemed too simple.
My name is Michael Vey, and the story I’m about to tell you is strange. Very strange. It’s my story.
To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary fourteen-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette’s syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers.
Michael thinks he's unique until he discovers that a cheerleader named Taylor also has special powers. With the help of Michael’s friend, Ostin, the three of them set out to discover how Michael and Taylor ended up this way, but their investigation brings them to the attention of a powerful group who wants to control the electric children – and through them the world. Michael will have to rely on his wits, powers, and friends if he’s to survive.
