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.

I LOVED Twelve! It was the PERFECT ending to an AMAZING series. 

Allow me a moment to rave about T.M. Franklin...

When More came out 2 years ago, I saw the reviews, the summary looked good, but I just never got around to it. I had read Windows, which was phenomenal, and then I read How to Get Ainsley Bishop to Fall in Love with You, loved it too. Then the cover reveal for Twelve came up and my curiosity was piqued once again and I remembered how much I liked the author's other stories I had read. So I thought, why not? Let me give this trilogy a whirl. 

Well, if I was flexible enough to give myself a kick in the butt, I would. The More Trilogy turned out to be one of my favorite series of the year.

T.M. Franklin's ability to create a believable supernatural world was amazing. I believed her world, so much so I am still trying to figure out how to "shift". I am positive I can do it. 

The characterizations were flawless. The writing was crisp, impeccable, and just led you along like the Pied Piper. Secondary characters drove the story and were just as developed and grew right along with Ava and Caleb. The scenes flowed and segued one right after the other. A true sense of color, texture, and palpable words on every page. I have not one criticism. I am truly in awe of her talent.

Her writing is pure magic.

As for the story. 

The ending was just at it should be, I was extremely pleased, but don't let that fool you. Twelve was action packed from start to finish. I was on edge the entire read. With every answer I got, new ones were created. 

Trepidation to the highest power because I just wasn't sure who to trust let alone what would happen next! So many twists and turns were occurring that I was just vibrating from excitement. 

The entire concept on "the Twelve" and how they came to be was a huge wow factor. It answered sooooo many questions that I had right from the start of the series, including who is Ava.

All answers were given as well as all loose ends to the huge puzzle of the More Trilogy were perfectly tied up.

A breathless and satisfying finale to a truly amazing series!

I am truly sad the series finished, but what a series! A must read for everyone!!

About the Author:

T.M. Franklin started out her career writing non-fiction in a television newsroom. Graduating with a B.A. in Communications specializing in broadcast journalism and production, she worked for nine years as a major market television news producer, and garnered two regional Emmy Awards, before she resigned to be a full-time mom and part-time freelance writer.

Her first published novel, MORE, was born during National Novel Writing month, a challenge to write a novel in thirty days. MORE was well-received, being selected as a finalist in the 2013 Kindle Book Review Best Indie Book Awards, as well as winning the Suspense/Thriller division of the Blogger Book Fair Reader’s Choice Awards.

In addition to MORE and its sequel, The Guardians, Franklin penned the Amazon best-selling short stories A Piece of Cake and Window, which also won a Blogger Book Fair Reader’s Choice Award for Short Story/Fantasy. 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.
