THE PRISONER OF CELL 25

Author:  Richard Paul Evans
Genre:  YA Sci-Fi, Michael Vey Series #1
Published:  2012
Personal Rating:  3.75/5 (good +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Fred Berman
Yearly Count:  75


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.

  1. I didn't realize Richard Paul Evans wrote YA - or sci fi. I'm glad you liked this one.

  3. I like that it's a clean YA book. So many of them seem geared for adults to me.

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ It was full of adventure. YA books shouldn't contain all the muck that most adult books are filled with.
