Product Description

Product Description

Fifteen-year-old Oliver Grain begins his school year fighting off bullies, learning about the boy who committed suicide in his room, and trying to understand why his history teacher, Mr. Gordon, has taken such a personal interest in him.

Do you believe in ghosts?
Do you believe you can make bullies simply disappear?
Do you believe you can walk through walls?

Mr. Gordon tells Oliver: "When you truly believe anything is possible, you will be able to open doors where there were only walls." And one of those doors leads Oliver to Provex City, which puts him in far greater danger than he can possibly fathom.

Welcome to Provex City.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Oliver...The End...Kidding... 17 Mar. 2013
By Cori - Published on
I love Oliver.

It's true; I want to run away with him. Provex City was awesome. I know I say a lot of books are good, and it's true, in my opinion are. But there are some author's that create a world far beyond what you expected from them and Michael Pierce is definitely one of those authors. I have read a lot of books, no really I have and so many of them have similar plots. Sure, they each have their own twists and turns, but there have been very few books with a truly original plotline.

I can legit count the number of books with them on one hand and Provex City has not only been added to the list, but just shot up to my second favorite! I love this plot. I want to have this plots babies. Pierce is an evil genius. Yes, evil because I need to know what happens next and there are no more pages in the book! Rude.

I don't often read stories from the point of view of a male main character. Not because I have anything against male leads, but because a lot of the stories I read are more on the girly side. So, it was a nice change seeing how guys view things like starting a new school, meeting girls, and having family issues. It was a fresh take on things and I think Pierce did a nice job of staying true to what makes teenagers them.

I really want to fangirl about everything that happens in this book and all the cool twists that I didn't see coming. I also have so many questions about characters and whether or not they are allies or enemies. But I don't want to spoil the book because then you won't get to have the same jaw dropping reaction I did at certain parts.

I will say this, it's action packed and though there are a few times where I was like why are you crying Oliver don't be a bitch, he really stepped up and was there for his Mom. Oh! Did I mention my love for Desiree? She's this awesome spunky almost sidekick to Oliver. They're best friends, but I swear it's so much more and neither of them realize it...Or do they? (I'm laughing evilly right now)

But seriously I am drawing so many pink fluffy hearts around this book and its characters. I can't wait to read the next installment and journey with Oliver to remember his forgotten past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid First Offering from Pierce 13 Mar. 2012
By JuiceTiger - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm constantly amazed at the undiscovered talent that exists out there. People with a penchant and passion for literature, of all forms and shapes, writing, publishing, putting themselves out there for critique...pretty cool stuff...wish I had the same passion for writing as I do for reading that which others write.

I'm a big reader, of the sci-fi/fantasy genre and anything else I can get my hands on, really... and while this book is many (many?) years younger than my target audience, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and development in both plot and characters. In a relatively short span of pages (90k words) I was invested, and Pierce had me wanting to know more about his characters, Provex, and these other almost Amber-esque planes of reality. Definitely a page-turner!

Pierce does an excellent job for his first time out with Provex City. This may be his first publishing as an author, but you can certainly tell he put thought and care in his crafting.

I am looking forward to his next offering, and Mr. Pierce, if you're reading this, if you decide to kill anyone off, leave Frolics alone.

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy, entertaining read. I'm a fast reader, and made it through the entire book in about 4-5 hours, with a few breaks for sustenance.

Well this is my second and a half time through the book and not sure why i still haven't written a review.
i would like to start off by saying I'm not much of a reader, but from the books i have read, in order for me
to finish them they have to be pretty ridiculously amazing and entertaining i.e hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, the stand so on and so forth.
If it is not amazing and the greatest thing ever i simply cant find it worth my time to finish it.
in other words this is the favorite of all books i have read and have now turned it on to many of my friends!!
Not only is it easy to read but the story is not at all predictable and it has advice in it that actually helps me in chapters of my life(pun intended)... simply beautiful.
Finally about to crack the second book and I'm sure ill finish it in short of a few days!! Keep on writing Pierce!
Your work is an inspiration.
4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and compelling; really enjoyed! 22 Oct. 2013

Disclaimer: I received my copy of PROVEX CITY to review for a book tour. I was in no way compensated for my opinion, which follows.

It was really refreshing for me to read a book with a male protagonist. It isn't that it hasn't happened, but it hasn't happened in the last stream of books (wonderful though they were) I've read! And often, male protagonists don't sound male, if that makes any sense.

The beginning of this book read a little younger than I was expecting, but quickly turned more towards the upper end of YA. There is some serious background that we're just not seeing in the beginning between Oliver and his older brother, Jeremy. I got the feeling that while Jeremy was looking out for his brother, there was also some hidden animosity. And it didn't really make sense as Oliver is the one living in Jeremy's shadow.

I truly enjoyed the "what if" scenario presented to Oliver by Mr Gordon and the "magic". It makes you wonder if that is true for everyone or just for Oliver since he, though he doesn't remember it thanks to a pill, is from someplace else. Provex City is on a different plane of consciousness, a higher one if you will, and that is where Oliver and his brother and mother are from, although none remember it for their own safety. As Oliver learns more and more from Mr Gordon, he is also dealing with high school and its complications: bullies, school work, jealous boyfriends, a opposite sex best friend, and a new girlfriend.

I liked this realm of possibilities Michael Pierce has created for us. Energy healing, various planes of consciousness, layered on top of one another, etc. Parallel dimensions are always fascinating...but what about TJ? He committed suicide, yet he's sentient wherever he is and able to communicate with Oliver! Oh and the ending? Yes, you should get book 2 while you're buying book one. Just a suggestion! ;)
4.0 out of 5 stars The Matrix and Wonderland! 18 Oct. 2013
By Dealsharingaunt - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
As soon as I read the prologue for Provex City I was hooked. I was completely caught up in Oliver and his family. Who was Daniel? Why the pills? What happened to warrant the pills? This was a cross between The Matrix and Alice in Wonderland. Provex City was a well described world. The author did a great job in making it come to life. I didn't like that there were unanswered questions at the end. I did like Oliver's love for his mom and I enjoyed the family life that was portrayed in the book. I am giving this book a 4/5.
