Utah Author (and Series) Spotlight -Richard Paul Evans
As a fanatic reader of Young Adult fiction the first time I became aware of his writings was the Michael Vey - The Prisoner of Cell 25. I was very impressed by his characters and the maturity and determination they showed. Michael Vey is one of a group of kids who have supernatural powers.
It shows a very loving home life and care for his family and friends. A girlfriend that brings out the softer side and a hilarious friend that always added the humor.
So far in the three books of the series we get to travel half the world with the hint of getting to do more in the next books to come. It is obvious that the author is well traveled and likes to add in characters, foods and cultures from the places they go. I have to admit that I might not have loved this series so much if it weren't for the audiobooks. I was very excited to see that Kirby Heyborne narrated book 3 especially because he is one of my favorites and does an amazing job with the accents and emotions.
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
