Back to a series review! Today we will focusing on the Michael Vey series by Richard Paul Evans. Definitely a science fiction book, Evans tells the story of Michael Vey, a teenage guy with tourette’s syndrome. The sequel, out now, is called Michael Vey: Rise of Elgen. The third Michael Vey book is too be released sometime this year.

Michael and his best friend Ostin get bullied by three guys named Jack, Mitchell, and Wade. To protect himself, Micheal uses his secret ability and shocks the bullies, knocking them down. A girl named Taylor sees this and reveals to Michael she has a power too. She can “reboot” someone’s memory and read their mind by touching them. Both of them receive scholarships from a mysterious Elgen Academy, but upon Michael telling his mom, she freaks out. As they leave the resturaunt they were in, Michael is confronted by a man named Dr. Hatch and two kids. Michael is then knocked out, his mother is kidnapped, and Taylor is taken captive. As Michael recruits the bullies and Ostin to help him rescue Taylor and his mother, they all get captured themselves. Trapped within Elgen Academy, Taylor and Michael realize there’s darkness within its walls. Resistance leads to torture. Michael learns things about Dr. Hatch and his company that really twists things around.

Michael Vey is a true science fiction book that has kids with abilities, prison cells that manipulate you through your biggest fears, and evil scientists. The book has amazing characters and the hero aspect of the story where Michael tries to rescue his friends multiple times keeps the reader on edge. Dr. Hatch is truly a devious, evil character that you hate but love at the same time. Its suspenceful and you root for Michael and his friends the entire time.

Anyone who likes this series would like the book False Memory or the Percy Jackson series.
