Review: More

"You super humans have grocery stores?"

Caleb rolled his eyes.  "Of course we have grocery stores.  Where else would we go to get our kryptonite and apocalyptic freeze rays?"


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.


This book is intriguing.  From the introduction including some odd happenings with a hamster, I was completely hooked.  Not only is Ava different, but overall she's just a great person.  I was easily able to relate to her friendly demeanor and independent attitude.  Right from the start, Ava shows her strength and independence by working so hard to maintain her scholarship as well as working a job in order to go through school to be the first of her family to get a degree.  In an age where so many college students in books have such disposable income, I find this extremely refreshing.  This creates a realm of realism in a world of supernatural powers.  It's a great mix and I completely devoured it.

I find Caleb intriguing.  I have to admit, I wished for more of a relationship between Ava and Caleb, but I can see why things were written as they were.  Their slowly budding romance is absolutely adorable, and once again, adds a little reality to the book.

I'm so interested in where this story is going to go.  One book is definitely not enough!  I feel like I've only seen the tip of the iceberg, and I hope to read the next installment soon, because I just have to know what's going to happen next!
