MORE (More Trilogy #1)Hot
Ava Michaels isn’t sure what’s real anymore. She’s haunted by terrifying nightmares of a huge, hulking man with mismatched eyes. But then that same man shows up on her doorstep and tries to abduct her – and her mild-mannered physics tutor, Caleb Foster, appears out of nowhere to come to her defense.
And she has no idea why.
On the run for her life, Ava discovers a secret, ancient race with amazing gifts and abilities. But they see her as a threat, and now her life is on the line. She can’t hide forever, and must find a way to survive – with or without Caleb’s help.
Along the way, Ava learns she’s not really normal. In fact, she’s not simply human.
She’s a little bit MORE.
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.
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
