The action-packed conclusion to the MORE Trilogy is here!
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 HEART BOOKS REVIEW
Review by Wennie Conedy
An e-book copy was provided in exchange for a review.
Twelve is the third and final book in the MORE trilogy. In the past two books, Ava found out she was more than human, and possesses immense power. She found her soul mate, realized her potential, learned she was hunted, and was sired by an evil criminal. She has also learned that she is part of the Twelve, with genetically designed DNA to make them … more.
All she wants is to start a new life with Caleb Foster, but finds herself caught up in a conspiracy. She finds herself being forced to do what is against her nature. In order to defeat the enemy, she and Caleb find themselves forging alliances with former enemies and seeking out new partnerships.
Twelve, the final book in the MORE trilogy, delivers a story with punch, a lot of action and edge-of-your-seat anticipation. Just when you think you can predict what is going to happen, T.M. Franklin takes you down another path that has you scratching your head and ratcheting concern for the fate of Ava and Caleb.
The love story between Ava and Caleb, as integral as it is to the story, takes a back seat in this third book, where the needs of the many outweighs the wants of the few.
I have always taken the position that writing creates a beat and a rhythm that dictates the pacing and flow of a book. In Twelve, the beat is fast, sometimes staccato, sometimes frenetic, but always consistently delivering the action that the story demands.
T.M. Franklin successfully created characters that stand out and make an impression. There are secondary characters that continue to live with me – Tiernan, most specially. I would have loved to see more of the banter between Tiernan and Ava, and in case T.M. Franklin decides to do a sequel, I hope Tiernan makes an appearance.
T.M. Franklin has successfully created a believable world. A world where genetically designed individuals use their special powers for the fight of good versus evil. A world where enduring love is possible, where enemies can become allies and friends, and where love, truth and doing the right thing prevail.
This is a YA series that I would definitely recommend for all ages.
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.
TWELVE, the final installment in the MORE Trilogy will be released October 9, 2014.
