Ava Michaels is gifted, powerful, and — whether she likes it or not — part of a plot to take over the world.

It’s only been a few months since Ava Michaels discovered she has ties to an ancient people living in the shadows of the human world, despite their superior gifts and abilities. A select few don’t like hiding, however, and think it’s time to take control.

Now Ava’s caught up in a conspiracy in the works before she was even born. In fact, her birth was an integral part of the plan. She’s one of the Twelve, the most powerful Race ever created, and they were created for a purpose.

Turns out, Ava doesn’t like being told what to do. All she wants is to start a new life with her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, but before they can even think about that, they must join forces with former enemies, seek out some powerful new friends, and figure out what exactly the Twelve, and their power-hungry leader, are up to.

Then, they have to find a way to stop them.

nose in a book review

The final installment of The More Series is finally here, and my goodness is it packed with action.  The battle for control of the Race continues –a fight between the Rogues and the Council — to see who will determine their future.

Ava and Caleb are back trying to broker a truce between the Guardians and the Council in an effort to fight Borre and his rogues.  The only problem is Ava is one of Borre’s children, one of twelve who were bred to fight with their father.  It isn’t until she realizes what the increasing frequency of her headaches means for her that she decides to take matters into her own hands.

The story really ramps up in the second half of this book and I had a hard time putting it down once the action starts. Franklin has a way of putting you into her stories and making you root for her characters.

My only real issue was with Franklin using the overused plot device of Ava hiding her headaches from Caleb, and the ultimate reveal of it all.  It just didn’t feel necessary to the story as a whole, and it really made me roll my eyes and set the book aside because I was so annoyed.

This book satisfactorily concludes this series in a way that will not disappoint T.M. Franklin’s fans.  My only beef is that I would have liked for an epilogue to round out what the future held for the Twelve.  I’m still crossing my fingers for a spin off of Tiernan’s story.  *hint hint*

Her new YA romance, How to Get Ainsley Bishop to Fall in Love with You, is Franklin’s first love story without a paranormal or fantasy element, although she believes love is the best kind of magic.
