MORE is the first installment of a new Young Adult paranormal trilogy by T.M. Franklin. If you like suspense and romance series, this is the right novel for you. It's also a great gift idea for friends who love a good adventure story. They wont be disappointed.

T.M. Franklin has a captivating writing style, and her words will immediately make you feel as you're following Ava and Caleb in their journey. The story begins with Ava Michaels, a brilliant college student who's experiencing some problems with physics, and Caleb, a kind older student who's helping her to pass the class. But you'll discover soon that we aren't delving into a college romance. No, T.M. Franklin has a different story to tell. We've been impressed by the way she disseminates hints in the first chapters, building tension and expectations about what's going to happen once you turn the page.

Since the beginning of the story we know that, as a child, Ava had an active imaginationand even now that she's in college she has vivid (and terrifying) dreams. In particular there is a scary, inhuman guy who seems to be out to get her. But within a few chapters fantasy and reality mix, and the scary guy is right there, with minions to help him. Caleb seems to know a lot more than he lets on, and finally things come to a head. He and Ava must leave town and abscond from mysterious enemies who threaten not only them, but all of human kind.

We discover that there's a hidden world beyond what we know or what we see.

Youve heard the myths.[]The Titans, the Nephilim . . . larger-than-life heroes and villains who fill up your history books. Mythology thats not so much mythology, if the truth were to be known.

Ava is in mortal danger because she can sense that parallel overlapping reality and her ability, united with other superhuman gifts she seems to possess and cannot yet control, makes her a potential threat.

Caleb will soon understand that he's protecting Ava not only out of duty, but also because of the growing affection between them. But as the plot develops, will Ava always be the damsel in distress, or will she become the hero's savior?

Whom will Ava trust? She learns how powerful Caleb can be, and she'll discover how even the people you think you know and considered friends could betray your trust. At the same time those who dont know the truth but just help you out of kindness can pay for that with their life. The temptation to give herself up, thus saving the innocents, becomes stronger and stronger.

All the characters are well crafted, but among them the more fascinating is without doubt Caleb. With him, T.M. Franklin designed a strong and brave man, who at the same time doesn't take himself too seriously. He's aware of the great responsibility that comes from the secrets he has to keep, but he's open-minded and recognizes that obedience to the rules should never be blind. At heart, he is a rebel. How will the rebellion go? We'll discover it in the sequel, that hopefully is coming soon after the first volume.
