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.

The books did not disappoint at all. I was instantly engrossed, the narrative being super interesting and with good flow. The story follows Ava, a college student who is struggling to keep her scholarship together. She is assigned a Physics tutor who is a genius and a tad bit weird. Caleb Foster is hiding something and Ava is not sure what. Turns out, he’s not even human! And…

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.

Time and time again, I was reminded of the Covenant books by J. L. Armentrout and bits and pieces of Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. The latter because the protag in the Sweet trilogy was also oblivious to what she was in the beginning. The latter because the main female and male lead stood up against authority too.

Favorite Characters:

Caleb: Duh. There’s something about guys who are good-looking AND good at physics.

Lucy: Ava’s friend. I think I see a pattern in my liking outspoken, bubbly, friends.

There’s quite a bit of action in this book, and a lot of surprising plot twists. I won’t be able to tell anything without giving spoilers so…

There isn’t much romance in this book, it’s more like a build-up of what will be a great and passionate love. I liked how Ava isn’t like the usual YA girls who are so ready to fall in love that they don’t even question the obvious confusion that the guy brings out in situations and circumstances.

On the whole, More is definitely a page-turner. Recommended for those who liked Covenant.

Stay tuned for the review of book 2 in the More Trilogy; The Guardians
