Michael Vey: Storm of Lightning is the fifth installment in the widely popular Michael Vey series. It again stars a group called the Electroclan, a group of kids that are hunted by an evil corporation called the Elgen, because most of the Electroclan have electric powers such as throwing thunder, taking away pain, among other things. This book starts right where the last one ends, (Spoiler alert if you haven’t read the last one) where the resistance base that they stayed at was destroyed. This book is not very interesting, as almost nothing happens, and I feel that it doesn’t live up to the other books in the series, like blowing up the Ampere or rescuing the Jade Dragon. This book doesn’t really have anything like that; it’s more of a bridge to the next book, and only serves to explain some plot points that are not very interesting, nor do they have much to do with the main plot. The book introduces a new electric child, (which now leaves one more to be revealed) but this character is not used until the very end, and isn’t very interesting. This book advertises “However, I do think that Michael Vey fans should probably read this book, because it is at least a little interesting and adds a little to the overall plot. It advertises “Can the Electroclan pull together to defeat the Elgen once and for all?”, but in reality, there is barely any interaction between the Electroclan and the Elgen, making this book pretyy boring. This book gets a ⅗ for the casual reader, but a 3.5/5 for a Michael Vey fan, or at least read the other ones. I recommend this for Michael Vey fans in the 6th to 8th grade age area, as it will provide some enjoyment for Michael Vey fans, but not as much for newcomers to the series.
