Being a descendant of the so called “First Race” has to be hard especially if you have no idea that is what you are. In More we are introduced to Ava, a normal college student or so she thought. She always thought she was a little weird but nothing to0 bad, strange things started to happen to her and even stranger people started following her. She is introduced to Caleb, normal enough, again so she thought. Caleb was sent to look after her and observe her, a Half Breed, for any sign of super secret powers she might have. Being a Half-breed, half human/First Race, is not allowed, but come to find out, Ava is not at all what anyone thinks she is.
I enjoyed reading this book, it kept me interested all the way through. There was enough mystery and intrigue that is surprised me and I couldn’t wait to read the next in the series. Frankin’s writing style was easy to follow and very descriptive but not too wordy, I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
In the Guardians we pick up with Ava and Caleb’s story, she is coming into her powers and learning to control them but there is a new enemy to confront and it seems that Caleb maybe one of them. Franklin stepped up the intrigue with the Guardians. Ava is helped by a man who she once thought was an enemy and betrayed by someone who she thought needed her help. I never knew who was really good or really bad, which I like, I don’t ever like knowing who “did it” in the middle of the book and this one kept me guessing all the way through!!! I gave this installment of the Guardians series 4 out of 5 stars as well and I cannot wait until the third.
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. After writing and unsuccessfully querying a novel that she now admits, “is not that great,” she decided to follow the advice of one of the agents who turned her down—write some more and get better at it. Her first published novel, MORE, was born during National Novel Writing month, a challenge to write a novel in thirty days.
Here is where to find her.
