Ok, I like to start it with this. Once I'm reading a book, I really don't focus on the author's way of writing, for me it's not a big deal, I just focus on the story itself. You will just feel it no matter how bad the writing is, it's a good book if you feel the hype that the story wants you to feel. For me Mr. Evans did a great job, the story is good, and also the book itself.
Back to review, Michael Vey is a well-balanced character, from the start he already knows what he has and what he's capable of, no need for a character build-up, it's his power that's building up.
A sinister came, that his friend Taylor; a cheerleader that has also an electro ability, and Michael's mom was kidnapped. He and his friend Ostin; an intelligent, know-it-all guy ( I love Ostin's character, he's full of humor) decided to save them, together with two bullys that eventually became their friends make their way to Elgen Academy. They came and something terribly happened wrong.
Some says it's an X-men Rip off, but no it's not, all their powers are all based in electricity, like the body's ability to conduct electricity, someting about our neurons, everything, it's Science. I love it.
The book has different POVs, but more on Michael's POV, sometimes it's a second person's POV telling the story of Taylor, and author's POV in 3rd person.
A cheerleader, a geek best friend, a main character with Tourette's, formed a group with Teenagers with electrifying power abilities with bad guys that turned to good to defeat a deceiving power-hungry villain full of lies. Fast-paced, action-packed. Full of twists. Follow Michael's adventure, know where their powers origin, and be amazed on their special abilities.
It's electrifying amazing.
