Twelve by T.M. Franklin Blog Tour Stop--Character Interview+ Giveaway!

The action-packed conclusion to the MORE Trilogy is here!

Ava Michaels is gifted, powerful, and — whether she likes it or not — part of a plot to take over the world.

It’s only been a few months since Ava Michaels discovered she has ties to an ancient people living in the shadows of the human world, despite their superior gifts and abilities. A select few don’t like hiding, however, and think it’s time to take control.

Now Ava’s caught up in a conspiracy in the works before she was even born. In fact, her birth was an integral part of the plan. She’s one of the Twelve, the most powerful Race ever created, and they were created for a purpose.

Turns out, Ava doesn’t like being told what to do.

All she wants is to start a new life with her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, but before they can even think about that, they must join forces with former enemies, seek out some powerful new friends, and figure out what exactly the Twelve, and their power-hungry leader, are up to.

Then, they have to find a way to stop them.

Character Interview with Caleb Foster from the MORE Trilogy.

Q: Caleb, you’re what’s called a Protector of the Race. For those who don’t know what that is, tell us about your job.

A: Well, it’s more than a job, really. As you may or may not know, the Race is committed to aiding humanity in its development as much as it’s can, but we also have to protect ourselves. There are fewer of us than ordinary humans, and our history has taught us that it can be dangerous to expose ourselves. We’re different and, unfortunately, many humans fear what they don’t understand. Protectors keep the Race safe and deal with any threats of exposure.

Q: But then, along came Ava.

A: *laughs* Yeah, along came Ava. She was a mission – a potential Half-Breed, one of the greatest threats to Race, as far as exposure is concerned. But she quickly became more than that. She challenged everything I was raised to believe.

Q: And you became a Protector of her, as well.

A: Not that she needs it.

Q: No, Ava definitely can take care of herself, as we saw in MORE and The Guardians. But now, your relationship faces a new threat in TWELVE.

A: It’s bigger than a threat to our relationship – it’s a threat to everyone, Race and human alike. As you know, Ava was created for a purpose – a rather nefarious purpose – and she has some brothers and sisters she didn’t know about who share that same destiny, for lack of a better word. It’s something Ava’s struggling with. She wants to do what’s right, and there’s a lot riding on her shoulders. It’s quite a bit of pressure. We’ve talked about it a lot, actually, the responsibility that comes along with Ava’s abilities. Ava can do a lot of amazing things, and we can only assume that the rest of the TWELVE have similar gifts – which can either make them great allies or potentially deadly opponents.

Q: Okay, changing gears for a moment – you have the ability to shift. Some call it teleporting. How does that work, exactly?

A: It’s tough to put into words because it’s really more of an instinct to me than anything. I visualize where I want to go and I just . . . go there.

Q: Does it have to be somewhere you’ve already been?

A: No, as long as I have a direction and distance, I can kind of set a path. The farther I go, the tougher it is, although I’m getting better at it. It takes a lot of concentration and energy, but I recover pretty quickly with the help of R-cubes.

Q: How do you not end up in a wall or a tree or something?
A: *laughs* I get asked that a lot! It’s never happened, though. I have a kind of internal avoidance system that keeps me from materializing inside solid matter. I just shift a little to the left or right. That doesn’t mean I avoid all danger, though. I can shift right into the middle of a fight, as you’ll see in TWELVE.

Q: Is it difficult shifting another person? Like you do with Ava?

A: It takes more energy. And I have to be touching them, of course. I think it’s tougher on the person I’m shifting, if they’re not used to it.

Q: Yeah, I know Ava threw up once.

A: *winces* That was not pleasant.

Q: Any last words for those who’ve been following your story along the way?

A: Hmm... well, I’d like to thank them for their interest, I guess. That’s pretty flattering. And I hope they enjoy reading the last installment in our story. It’s a pretty wild ride.
