Michael Vey, 14-years-old, has special electric powers. He discovers he's not alone, which brings him comfort, but also the questions: Why me? Why us?
I enjoyed this. I really enjoyed the characters and thought the science-fiction part was done well. It was a very "clean" book - no swearing, drugs or alcohol. My interest level remained high throughout, even though it was definitely geared to a YA audience, and I was entertained. The ending consisted of a close-to over-the-top climax, but it worked. I look forward to the second in the series titled Rise of the Elgen.
