REVIEW: More by TM Franklin


Ava Michaels used to think she was special. As a child, she fantasized about having magical powers . . . making things happen. But Ava grew up and eventually accepted the fact that her childish dreams were just that, and maybe a normal life wasn't so bad after all. Now a young college student, Ava meets Caleb Foster, a brilliant and mysterious man who’s supposed to help her pass Physics, but in reality has another mission in mind. What he shows Ava challenges her view of the world, shaking it to its very core. Because Caleb isn't quite what he seems. In fact, he's not entirely human, and he's not the only one. Together, the duo faces a threat from an ancient race bound to protect humans, but only after protecting their own secrets—secrets they fear Ava may expose. Fighting to survive, Ava soon learns she's not actually normal . . . she's not even just special. She's a little bit more.

There’s a lot of good in this book, with some things that were lacking. It was an interesting and unique world that the author has built, and the plot had lots of twists and turns. That being said, there were some plot holes and unanswered questions.

The characters were likeable with Ava being a refreshing mature heroine and a very loyal, devoted Caleb as our hero, but I would’ve liked to know more about Caleb to get a better feel for him. Their romance was nicely paced, but was not the focus of the story, so naturally as a romance fan, I would have liked to see more of that, but that’s ok.

Perhaps my biggest complaint is the pacing. It was a slow to start and a little slow in other places as well, despite having action and adventure. The storytelling other than that though was really pretty good. We’re kept in suspense, but not left hanging or completely in the dark. The author makes it feel more authentic by not having Ava immediately believe everything she’s told, but gradually coming to terms with her new strange knowledge. Overall, it’s worth a read!

Bottom Line:

This book leaves room for a sequel and the author leaves you wanting it. If you’re looking for a refreshing read full of mystery, friendship, budding romance, and some action, don’t miss out on More!
