The start of an action-packed teen series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans.

To everyone at Meridian High School, fourteen-year-old Michael Vey is nothing special, just the kid who has Tourette’s syndrome. But in truth, Michael is extremely special—he has electric powers. Michael thinks he is unique until he discovers that a cheerleader named Taylor has the same mysterious powers. With the help of Michael’s friend, Ostin, the three of them set out to discover how Michael and Taylor ended up with their abilities, and their investigation soon brings them to the attention of a powerful group who wants to control the electric teens—and through them, the world.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans introduces a character whose risk-filled exploration marks the beginning of a riveting new series. With only his powers, his wits, and his friends to protect him, Michael will need all his strength to survive….

Michael Vey is the first title in Glenn Beck's Mercury Ink publishing program.

    R.L. Stine

Listener Reviews

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Michael Derricott | 2/15/2014

    " This is the perfect book for any child to read. All of us are an outcast of kind and this book teaches many lessons necessary to overcoming that. While the main characters in this book are both young males and females the parents are not portrayed and ignorant authoritarians as they are in much of children's literature. If you or your child is looking for a book that is dripping with moral lesson, this is the book. It also doesn't hurt that the main character's name is Michael. "
