Title- The Twelve
Author- T.M Franklin
Publisher- The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House
I think by now everyone knows my love for this trilogy, and I am very sad to see it come to an end!
In Twelve, we meet Ava Michaels and she is right where we left her at the Guardian colony. With the threat of Ava’s father, Elias Borré , looming, the guardians need help and resort to working with the council. Together they will need to find the twelve and fight Elias Borré.
The theme throughout the whole book is family, Ava has her biological family, Elias Borre and the Twelve, but she also has the human family who raised her and Caleb. She has all this family and is conflicted throughout the whole story. Ava has a big heart and getting to know some of her brothers and sisters, she wanted to be there for them, but at the same time she couldn’t be there for some. We even see family struggle with Caleb, does he side with his mother or with his father? Can they ever all get along?
The villain in this book, stayed a true villain and I really despised Borre and what he was doing not only to the Race, but also to his, “children”. I truly did not like how he was able to manipulate Emma and treat her the way he did, when she only loved him.
In this last installment, the plot and writing was great, yet again! It was action packed and I never grew bored while reading the story. There were some twists that I did NOT see coming, but like any book there were one or two that as I read, I began to figure. The last one was a bit of a shocker, even though I had a feeling, but it made me wish there was another book!!!!
I’m very sad to say good-bye to this trilogy, but I cannot wait to read for from T.M. Franklin and maybe one day, I will be able to see these characters come to like!!!
