One thought on “Book Review: Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25”

  1. What an amazing book! I was entirely enthralled with Michael Vey: The prisoner of Cell 25. This is Richard Paul Evan’s first endeavor into the young adult (YA) genre; and I must say he excelled in his mission. This book is very well written and appropriate for young readers, something which boys will find electrifying. However, don’t let that deter your adventure, anyone can experience and enjoy Michael Vey. Truly, a must read!
