This fall, fans worldwide will be devastated when Richard Paul Evans’ bestselling Michael Vey series comes to an end with the as-yet-unnamed seventh and final book in the series. During the peak of dystopian YA, Evans observed that the genre was flooded with dark and hostile themes and set out to write a series focused on hope, loyalty, and courage. Evans’ series about a fourteen-year-old with mysterious electric powers and Tourette’s syndrome (like Evans himself) hit the mark, resonating with teens and adults alike, and growing considerably from book to book. If you’re not already a “Veyniac” yourself, see what you’re missing out on—we’re featuring the first book in a series as one of our featured reads from now until April 17!
With the series coming to a close, Evans has launched the Michael Vey Commercial Contest, in which fans are invited to create and post a Michael Vey commercial on YouTube for the chance to win a slew of prizes, including the opportunity to win a lunch with Evans himself! If you’re interested in entering (perhaps after reading Michael Vey here on Riveted), you’ll find all of the details here on Evans’s blog. The contest wraps on April 16 so you’ll need to get moving!
There have been some AMAZING entries so far, it’s really evident how much this series has meant to kids! We rounded up a few of our favorites, though to be honest, it was hard to pick a favorite. We’re glad we’re not the ones responsible for choosing a winner! Take a look and see what you think. And if you’re inspired to enter, be sure to leave a link to your entry in the comments on this post so we can take a look!
