    Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 is the first book in the Michael Vey series from #1 bestselling author Richard Paul Evans. To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is just your average, ordinary fourteen-year-old. But Michael is anything but ordinary – in fact, he is electric. When Michael’s best friends, Ostin Liss and cheerleader Taylor Ridley, make an accidental discovery, the three of them learn that there are other kids with similar powers – and that someone, or something, is hu Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 is the first book in the Michael Vey series from #1 bestselling author Richard Paul Evans. To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is just your average, ordinary fourteen-year-old. But Michael is anything but ordinary – in fact, he is electric. When Michael’s best friends, Ostin Liss and cheerleader Taylor Ridley, make an accidental discovery, the three of them learn that there are other kids with similar powers – and that someone, or something, is hunting them. After Michael’s mother is kidnapped, Michael will have to rely on his wits, his unique power, and his friends to combat the hunters, free his mother, and save the others. This is one of the best works of fiction I have read in some time. Richard Paul Evans hits it out of the park with this effort, a fantasy work which features realistic and memorable teen characters, who face evil in the form of a doctor and his staff who wish to control several “special” teens who have gained electrical and other powers. The evil Dr. Hatch sees them as forming an army of unstoppable warrirors who will do his bidding. This is not a short read at 326 pages, but well worth the effort. Michael Vey is the main protagonist and is a typical fifteen-year old kid who hangs with his friend Ostin, which should have been “Austin” but was spelled differently, and a girl he has his eye on, cheerleader Taylor Ridley. The characters act as typical teens but Vey and Taylor share a common bond, they both have these “special” powers that only 15 others have had, as a result of their birth involving a certain machine. Many others died. The evil Dr. Hatch searches for the final missing two of the seventeen, namely Michael and Taylor. Michael’s mother is kidnapped in an attempt to gain Michael’s cooperation in helping the dastardly doctor reach his fiendish goals. The book is masterfully crafted, a believable and interesting story with rich characters and is a wholesome read as well, without strong language, which is a refreshing change of pace. Yet potential readers should not be concerned about a possible dull story because of the wholesome language. There is plenty of action and angst-filled moments in the story, and interesting changes which occur to several of the characters. The fantasy element is very well handled and intriguing. And I enjoyed the humor. In one scene, a fat character named Ostin finds himself in an awkward situation and says it felt like being a twinkie on a salad bar. There are some violent moments which do not cross our level of acceptability, such as characters being shot at or chased and there are characters who endure pain as a result of the “electrical” and mind powers of a few of the characters. It is for the mildly violent moments in this fantasy-based story that we recommend its reading for ages twelve and above, in addition to the fact that it is a story teens and young adults will enjoy a lot. One character can “reboot” other character’s minds with her own mind. This story is imaginative reading for older adults as well who may wish to remember that “high school” feeling of being young and dealing with both awkward and great moments. We believe that Richard Paul Evans, the author of “The Christmas Box” really showcases his talent in this wonderful fantasy story and we are pleased to award the book our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal in addition to five Doves, which is as good as it gets. A group of good guys is formed in this novel, the “Electroclan” and the book ends with a certain ending which is a bit open-ended and we are told another novel is coming. I want to read the next one!

Michael has brown hair and that's about all it tells you about him. i liked this book because it takes you on an intense journey with the characters it is like you are with them the entire time. the only thing that i didn't like was that it took a while to get to the existing parts. it has a good start not the best but not bad it describes the characters before they go on the journey witch i liked in stead of doing it late that is why i liked the Michael vey book.

Book 3: This book starts where the last book is left of. Micheal is with a group of natives and he meets this girl named Tessa and she escaped from Mr. Hatch. My overall thoughts on these books are they are pretty good. I think the first one was the best.

    This book is amazing. People must read this book. Michal Vey is a kid who has electric powers and discovers new friends with other powers. Together they will fight until they win. I liked this book because I really felt like I was there watching all of it happen, and I was really getting into the book and just wanted to keep reading. Also there was a lot of suspense at the end of the chapters which really made you want to keep reading.

    I think that these books are very interesting! I love they way the relationships form between the main characters and that every one of them continually plays an important role in battling the Elgen.

At his school he’s nothing more than a normal average looking fourteen year old, but he has a secret almost no one knows about. Michael was a very calm but coward and unpopular boy.

Michael thi Michael The book MICHAEL VEY, THE PRISONER OF CELL 25, written by Richard Paul Evans, talks about a boy named Michael. At his school he’s nothing more than a normal average looking fourteen year old, but he has a secret almost no one knows about. Michael was a very calm but coward and unpopular boy. He was usually teased after and during school. Worst, of all the teachers and the principal don’t seem to even care. Bullies won’t stop no matter what. He only has one friend named Ostin. Michael thinks his life is going to stay like this forever until something happens and he is forced to defend himself in a way no one else could. Thanks to this, Michel is now a strong men who can reveal his abilities to more people and can fight for what he wants with even more to come. Being pushed made Michael realize how strong he can be. Just right after detention Michael was ‍walking calmly when suddenly some bullies started to beat him up for something he just hadn’t done. Even when a friend threatens with telling a teacher they won’t stop bullying him. Finally, Michael had had enough, he was tired so he surged. “Electricity flashed and the bullies screamed and fell to their backs.”pg 18 In addition, Michael took advantage of that situation to say… “if you ever touch me again I’ll shock you even worse!”pg 18 Not only that, but Michael threatened the bullies by telling them… “next time you bully me or any of my friends I’ll triple it!”pg 23 As a result the bullies were so scared that they were moaning and crying like little babies. Lastly Michael finally felt good, he felt really strong thanks to him being able to take revenge and defend himself. Michael changing is due to him being pushed to act strong. Michael at the beginning of the story was the boy the bullies choose to tease on. Now the bullies are scared to death about him, consequently the word spread out of Michael “destroying them” Now all the cool guys speak to him and Michael thanks to this feels stronger and changed to being a sort of cool guy. For example Michael was invited only the cool guys were going. Even his best friend Ostin got to go. Another example is he was put into a fight that was meant like a strong test. In the text says… “ During the fight I was winning (Michael was winning) I was against this tough super strong guy”. “I surged but nobody knowdesed.”pg 56 Michael felt like a hero, even though it was cheating, everyone was cheering. Even when he's fighting for what he wants and with his abilities, he’ll still be held back. The Michael will have many adventures throughout the whole book but as it is in every story there is a villain. Without any spoiler alert, in this book there is someone so powerful who will do anything to capture Michael. “We need to protect him, thank god he’s got more protection than the queen and still we’ve got to find Michael.”pg 68 (Paraphrased quote from the book) Later in the book… the villain would threaten Michael with anything he can think of just so he gets it he’s way. “Michael you better come with me so that when you come back your friends are still here.”pg 198This proves the villain will go very far and do whatever he needs to make his plan work. Michel is now a strong men who can reveal his abilities to more people and can fight for what he wants with even more to come. Being pushed made Michael realize how strong he can be, Michael changing is due to him being pushed to act strong, even when he's fighting for what he wants and with his abilities, he’ll still be held back. Michael has learned a lot and we can also learn from him. He fights for what he believes in and without expecting it he was confronting bullies and being the cool kid. You never know what’s coming for you. Michael changed a lot and he could soon be saving the world and many lives including the ones from people close to him.

    This is the third book in the Micheal Vey series. It starts out where the second one left off. Micheal and the others had just destroyed the Elgen plant in Peru. He was separated from the rest of the group and picked up by a tribe of Indians, the Amacarra. They didn't speak any english, but still helped him heal his ankle which he had twisted. While with the tribe he met a girl named Tessa. She is one of the electric children that worked for Hatch. She didn't want to work with Dr.Hatch anymore This is the third book in the Micheal Vey series. It starts out where the second one left off. Micheal and the others had just destroyed the Elgen plant in Peru. He was separated from the rest of the group and picked up by a tribe of Indians, the Amacarra. They didn't speak any english, but still helped him heal his ankle which he had twisted. While with the tribe he met a girl named Tessa. She is one of the electric children that worked for Hatch. She didn't want to work with Dr.Hatch anymore so she escaped and hid with the Amacarra. Micheal and Tessa were told it was their time to leave, so him and Tessa met up with Jamine the guy that had been helping the Electro-clan. While Micheal Tessa and Jamine were traveling around talking to the voice (the leader of the organization) the rest of the Electro-clan were getting taken by the Peruvian government. Ostin had created a plan to escape and they were so close to getting all of them out but they were recaptured as they were leaving. Micheal learned that the Government was moving the other kids so him and Jamine developed a plan for their rescue. The kids were being taken in a convoy of trucks so Jamine decided they would drop rocks on the street to stop them, but the rocks just hit the trees. Micheal took it into his own hands and used Tessa's power to increase his own and took out the trucks himself. One by one they rescued the kids besides Jack and Taylor who were being taken away. They caught up to them and rescued them but at the cost of Wades life who was shot when taking out a guard. To make things worse they learned that Hatch had taken over the Elgen and their fleet of boats. Most of the teens decided to go take him down but the others said no. There are many real world problems that this book deals with. One of the main things it deals with is loss. All of the characters had to deal with the loss of one of their friends in Wade. All of the characters took it hard but Jack took it the hardest because Wade was his closest friend. The book takes place almost entirely in Peru until the end of the book when they plan on going to take the Elgen ships. It takes place in the perspective of the Micheal telling all of his thoughts and what he experiences, but occasionally it will split to the point of views of the other characters to show what is going on in the other parts of the story. There are many themes of the book and one of them is never give up even when you think it is impossible. There were many parts in the story where Michael could have just given up but he kept on carrying on. For example when the rocks didn't hit the trucks he could have quit but he was determined to save his friends. Another is stick together in times of need. An example of this is when Wade died Jack blamed himself but they were all there for him. “He knew you loved him. That's why he loved you so much (Evans 183).¨ That was said to Jack to cheer him up after Jack kept blaming himself for Wade's death. I think this book was good but not the best. I have really liked reading this series but this book was probably the worst book out of all of them. The story has been really good but this one was the slowest to get going and there wasn't a lot of action. I still really liked the book. I really like how the author keeps introducing new characters (like Tessa) and adding to the already pretty large list of them. I also like how the author makes new interesting scenarios for the characters. I will keep reading the series to see what happens to Micheal and the other heros

Micheal is the main character in this book along with his friends .As the story develops, Mr. Evans creates moral dilemmas that Michael and his friends must face. Questions of ethics and evil versus good become pivotal points and serve to develop a moral compass for the youngsters, both in the story and hopefully for the children reading the book.There are 7 books in this series, This book has an amazing storyline, very detailed characters, and it keeps you entertained throughout the whole book.

Questions of ethics and evil versus good become pivotal points and serve to develop a moral compass for the youngsters, both in the story and hopefully for the children reading the book.There are 7 books in this series, and I have read them all, and each book gets better and better. I highly recommend this book to teens, because there is some "scenes" that might not be suitable for younger children. This is a fairly standard superhero origin story but one that's well paced and involving. Author Richard Paul Evans created likable characters and put them in suspenseful situations. There are violent scenes but little bloodshed. Characters are kidnapped, fitted with shock collars, put in solitary confinement, and hurt with psychic powers. It makes you almost relate to the characters in a sort of way. Some are outcasts, some are popular, etc. This truly is a great book that you can't wait to turn every page. Following is a great, spoiler free, summary of the book. "Years ago, a medical equipment accident killed dozens of newborns and left 17 of them with assorted "electrical powers." In present-day Idaho, 14-year-old misfit Michael Vey, who can create electricity and has Tourette's syndrome, is one of the last two living outside of Pasadena. Coincidentally, the other "electric child" is Michael's crush, cute cheerleader, Taylor who is able to mentally "reset" people's brains. When a mysterious organization called Elgen kidnaps Taylor as well as Michael's mother, Michael, his best friend Ostin, and a pair of school bullies venture on a cross-country trip to rescue them." www.publishersweekly.com

This was a great book! I would definitely recommend it for younger readers that like this genre. It was an action packed book with scenes that kept me turning the pages. I like how it starts out with this ordinary kid in high school who really has the most ordinary life, but then turns into something more. The author did a very nice job of easing readers into this idea of kids that live in our world and in our time, but have special powers. The characters in the book were quite intriguing as well. I liked how Evans unfolded each mystery throughout the book. The plot itself was not the most original, but it was quite interesting in its own way. I could kind of tell what was going to happen towards the end of the book, but I couldn't really tell how it was going to happen and those Hows were pretty interesting. I love how the main character develops his relationships with the other characters and how those relationships change throughout the book. At first, he is the only one on his side, but as he talks to and gets to know the other kids there, he realizes that they don't really know what the outside is really like. They don't know what it is like to have a real family to care for you and love you. They are test subjects that are given false freedom. All in all, it was a pretty good book! I want to read the next books in the series, just to find out what's going to happen now and how this band of kids is going to avoid this corporation that is literally everywhere and who is going to betray them or who has already betrayed them!

The protagonist is Michael and his friends and the antagonist would be Dr. Hatch. Some major activities that Michael goes on would be him going to California and trying to rescue his mom from a secret school, and he also goes in cell twenty five. Some of the problems that they face would include that they find Dr. Hatch and get caught trying to rescue his mom. When I was reading Michael Vey I felt like he was telling his story to me, and I felt like I was in the story with him and all of his friends. My favorite characters would have to be Michael and Taylor, this is because of how nice and cool they are around each other and other people. My favorite part was when Michael and Taylor first start liking each other and they find out that they both have powers. I can relate some parts of the book to my life with Michael at the beginning just trying to get through high school and with him and Taylor. I would recommend reading this book for a lot of different reasons. First would be that it is very exciting and full of action and it will always keep you guessing about what's coming next. My favorite part of the book by far is Michael and Taylors love story. And one of my least favorites would be when it talks about Hatches backstory but in adds to the story in a good way. Others might not like the book because some people might not like the love story between Taylor and Michael, but I enjoyed it and I think you will too.

Soon, a secret group found out about Micheal's power and began to look for him. Once they found him they took him, Ostin and Taylor. to a prison. Once they were there, he found 3 others also with powers. The other 3 were there for quite a while so with Micheal and the others the started a plan. An escape plan. The six of them working together to get out. One by one they were able to take down 20 guards in a matter of minutes. 12 Guards were down already so the rest ran up to the last floor and guarded the exit but the six of them had a plan. They got 12 smoke grenades and threw them into the room, then had them all jump out of the room allowing them to escape! I can relate to Micheal and Ostin. Since they are best friends they obviously would do crazy stuff together. I mean who wouldn't? Might as well have a fun time right? I've also felt anger. Just like Micheal did when he was being bullied. I haven't necessarily been bullied but i've felt the same anger than anyone who has been. I loved the book! My favorite part was their escape. It was full of suspense and tension on what was going to happen next. I didn't have any least favorite part of the book, I just thought the whole thing was great! The author did a great job on explaining everything, I wasn't confused on any part of the book. Also, the more I read the more I wanted to read with greater focus. I would recommend this book to everyone! Mainly to the people that look for adventure. Or people with fictional interest. Then again I would with no doubt tell anyone to read the book. The book is just that amazing. I read 100% of the book

I didn't know of any good war books, so I thought of other genres. I realized I have not read any science fiction books. I decided on Micheal Vey because my brothers read the book and loved it. I trust their judgement and now love the books. I loved the Micheal Vey books. I love the story line and how Richard Paul Evans brings characters in and out of the story. With his books you also have to be cautious about characters because they change their hearts, and what side they are on. As you will soon find out, Hatch leader of the electrokids is evil. I have never met a character as evil as Hatch. Evans brings new light, and meaning to Hatch's character. Another thing I really enjoyed about the books, were the authors use of similes, and metaphors. When he tries to compare things, you get accurate thoughts and feelings. You know exactly what a character is trying to get across through the use of the amazing similes and metaphors. The Micheal Vey books are so good, with the very well thought out and delivered plot of the story.

When agents from Elgen kidnap his mother and one of his friends, Michael sets off on a cross-country quest to rescue them. Personally I liked reading this book and it would keep me on my toes. I would stay up late to finish the book because I knew I couldn’t sleep if I put the book down even though I have read the series a few times prior. My favorite character is Michael Vey because he has all these things that are wrong with him like Tourette’s for example but he still kicks some serious butt. He showed that it is okay and even cool, to be different than everyone else and to not let anyone make fun of you for it. I liked the book for the most part and I would even go as far to say that the first book was great. I liked how action packed the book was and how there was twists and turns in every chapter. The end of the book was wrapped up pretty nicely that set up the second book. After the second book the series is just stretched out to make money and very repetitive. He starts to focus more on the characters relationships than on the actual plot. I would recommend the book to anyone that is looking for a good read.

There was some days that I didn’t want to read but this book always had a reason for me to read. Micheal lovers his mom and is his best friend throughout the whole book. The people u would recommend this book to is people that some really like to read a lot of books. It seems long and boring to read but you will miss out on something amazing. Something you need to know about this book is some times it would get boring and you will want to stop but there is always on reason to keep reading. Some time I couldn’t understand stand what to book was saying but it made since in the long run. Micheal goes through what a lot of teenagers go through and you might be able to understand some of his problems.

    What I think about the 1st book is that it was great. It had great amount of suspense, it had the great amount of drama, and mystery. It really show the background of the characters (especially Micheal's) and his friends. It showed how friendships can be made and people do things that they think is right. The book shows how people can really change their attitudes. In the 2nd book I think it was really too predictable in what was going to happen next, and lacked a lot of the same drama it had in What I think about the 1st book is that it was great.

In the 2nd book I think it was really too predictable in what was going to happen next, and lacked a lot of the same drama it had in the first book. It needed more suspense in some parts and more excitement in things that need it as well. It was lacked detail, but kept the mystery still in it through out the story, with the secret agency. In the third book, it still kept that mystery, but spoiled way too early in the book, and how the Peruvian army did what they did, just made me mad. I liked how they turned against the "good guys", but it just made me uncomfortable. When Michel and his team were escaping, the chapter had way too much detail, with the saving his mom thing, and letting his mom go again. It just was all clumped up, and many sacrifices had to be mad, and a lot of the ugly arguing drama. Unfortunately, I stopped reading the series, and found other books.

This makes it the perfect book if you are looking for something to get you back into reading. It is also really interesting how he puts facts in there that you would have otherwise been unaware of. For example he talks about electricity and how much an electric eel can put off. I really liked how he made you feel as if you are one with the character. He lets you see there thoughts, this allows you to have a connection with the characters. I liked the story line of the book. It was very cool and wasn't overly complicated. It was easy to follow but hard to predict. I really like how he makes it seem like you are in a movie. I really like how he didn't make the characters perfect so that you can relate to them more. Overall I think that this was one of the best books I have ever read five stars for sure would read again.

    Michael Vey Rise of the Elgen written by Richard Paul Evans is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I don’t like to read, but this book I couldn’t put down. It’s full of adventure, action and a little bit of romantic drama. It's about a group of teenagers that have electric powers that are all unique and different. The elgen took Michael’s mom and they have to rescue her from the Elgen electrical rat power plant.

The reasons that I really liked this book is because it was super easy to get sucked into. The author also did a really good at using words to illustrate what is going on every part in the book. I liked how the characters have their own powers but they all have something in common, electricity. They use it to try and save his mother. I also like how there's a lot of different problems going on at the same time. I would recommend this book to anyone no matter what they like. I just flew through all 335 pages. The theme for this book is you can always be successful against the odds, because there are only 7 of them against a whole army.

Micheal is an awesome book talking about a boy who was given the powers to conduct electricity. Although it's a cool idea, what I really like about the book is the variety of the characters.

This doesn't mean that the story doesn't have the bad guy though. Another thing that I really liked about the book is showing what was happening on the other side of peoples views. This really helps you immerse yourself into the book, and makes each person have a little bit more of a human. Although, this doesn't happen to most of the characters accept through Micheal and Dr. Hatch's view. Due to this, some of the characters like Wade fall flat in personality by not giving major character development. I also find that some of the characters have an over use of one side of a personality. For example, Ostin often is a coward except for a few scenes where he actually gathers up enough courage. In total, I think this book was awesome and fun to read and was well worth the time.
