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.
Ava, however, doesn't like being told what to do.
All she wants is to start a new life with Caleb Foster, the Protector who once put his own life at risk to save hers. Before they can even think about that, however, they need to figure out exactly what the Twelve and their power-hungry leader are up to-and find a way to stop them.
Along the way, they'll have to forge alliances with former enemies, seek out powerful new friends, and infiltrate the heavily fortified enemy stronghold in an attempt to get some answers. In the end, Ava must decide if her destiny lies in her DNA or in her conscience. If she can turn her back on what she was born to do and do what is right. If she will save the ones she loves or save the world.
Or if her ties to the Twelve mean she has no choice at all.

Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews! I must admit that I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Twelve, the conclusion of the More trilogy, by T.M. Franklin, ever since I finished The Guardians last year. With Twelve, Franklin doesn’t disappoint, penning a gripping and page-turning conclusion to her young adult paranormal series! Twelve picks up up a few months after the end of The Guardians, Ava and Caleb are searching for Ava’s newly discovered siblings, who make up the Twelve. The Twelve are genetically engineered siblings created by Elias Borré to be more powerful than an average member of the Race. Evil and a master manipulator, Borré controls and threatens his children into helping him with his plot to take over the Council, which makes him a character you just love to hate. True to her character throughout, Ava wants to protect those she loves, especially Caleb—her true love—which I have always adored about her. When threatened by Borré, Ava fully understands that he is trying to manipulate her. Thankfully, Ava is a feisty character and not one to do just as she’s told even if she is being threatened. One of the best aspects of Ava’s character is her ability to strategize, and I cheered when she uses that to brilliantly outwit Borré. Franklin does a wonderful job of balancing the characters we have grown to love throughout the series while introducing new characters to fall in love with too. Hand-in-hand with the characters we love, there is plenty of pulse-pounding action, leading up the dramatic showdown between the Twelve and Borré where lives will be lost, and Borré will get just what he deserves. As with the first two books of this series, I was completely drawn into Franklin’s unique paranormal world and read Twelve in one sitting. Memorable characters, all major plot points accounted for, and a perfect ending for Ava and Caleb make Twelve the epic conclusion I was looking for! I definitely recommend the More trilogy to teens and adults alike. I received an eBook copy of the book for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
T.M. Franklin’s “Twelve” is a fantastic ending to this trilogy! It’s part fantasy, part NA romance, part thriller, and even part action. I love the characters and the huge interwoven storyline. The very best parts of Jumper, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Heroes, X-Men, and many more all mixed into one! I couldn’t put it down. I will say you do need to read all of the books in order, you can not just pick up this last one and fully appreciate it.
