The story is well-written, with lots of action and plenty of suspense. I was hooked from the first page.
Johan and the supporting cast were well-developed, had their own personalities, and were, for the most part, likeable. Even the unpleasant Trip, turned out not to be a villain, which I didn’t see coming!
Thanks to the descriptive and engaging writing, I felt as though I had joined Johan and his new friends in the challenging world of the 11th Percenters.
The book ended well, leaving room to continue the story, but without a cliffhanger.
Thank you to the author for gifting me an eCopy of the book.
The 11th percent passed on all expectations I had of this book and more, the plot is fascinating to take in, the characters are instantly loveable in their own ways with their on quirks and talents. Each page sucks you deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole that T.H.Morris has created, I could read this book in one sitting ( not because it lacks substance of anything near that of the matter) but I found myself wanting to savour it, think about it, mull the quite frankly brilliant ideas around in my head.
If you are struggling to find books that take hold, or keep interest all I can say is please, please read this beauty of a book.
One of my favourite books I have ever read.

Well, not exclusively, anyway. It has ghosts, haunted houses, cemeteries, that kind of thing, but doesn't reference the holiday specifically. Which is a good thing, I think. It stands alone!
I was pleasantly surprised with this book and really enjoyed my time with it despite some questions about the ending. It had a good variety of characters, the MC had lots of room to grow, and I liked the diversity among those in the book.
What this book REALLY has going for it is the fresh ideas. It's a good and bad thing, really. So many awesome ideas (which I've never read before) also mean that a lot of explanation is required, and this happens heavily in the first 30% of the book. Happily, I didn't feel it dragged.
The writing is good, truly. While this is definitely a first book from this author, I felt a lot of heart and passion. The ending, however, let me down.
When it came to Jonah, (throughout the book) I felt like everything came FAR too easily. He just 'happened' to stumble on the needed weapons, and just happened to find his friends right away, and just happened to survive a second attack from the bad guy (who gave up far too easily in the final scenes), without any of them getting hurt through all this mess. Not to mention that he had REALLY angry spirits giving him power (who, though rabid and evil, agreed to an endowment after like 1 minute of conversation- too easy!), but was able to 'magically handle it' without any problems. And I found it difficult to believe that the bad guy would just leave him alive TWICE. Jonah's writing issues were never finalized either.
All in all, I loved it. I loved the concept of endowment from spirits, the idea of 'life just evolving into a different form and not dying' as well as a couple of other things. There were many 'made me think' moments and philosophy concepts that I appreciated.
This was a different and interesting read. I can't say I have ever read anything quite like it yet. The dialog was a little stiff but the overall plot caught my attention because it is something I have thought about more than once before. The story wrapped up nicely but left some interesting possibilities for more books in the series. It definitely left me interested in seeing where the author takes these characters. If you are looking for something that is going to make you think The 11th Percent is worth a read.
This is a fantastic debut novel for T H Morris, I will eagerly await to see where he goes in book 2.
I highly recommend this to anyone who likes things that go bump in the night.
For fans who want more from their read, however, the book may leave them wanting more. It's like going to Vegas hoping to see or Penn and Teller and getting the hotel floor show. You've seen the tricks before, just with different characters and costumes.
Meet Jonah Rowe, failed writer stuck in a miserable job, with a boss who piles on the work and supervisor who belittles him constantly. Sound familiar? One day he discovers he has more magical potential than any other practitioner alive (a blue aura) and only he can restore balance to the spiritual plane caused by Creyton, the most powerful evil wizard ever.
Morris follow up with a school of recruits, a traitor, an evil wizard recruiting spirits to his side and killing off good spirits one-by-one. All classic pieces of the Harry Potter formula. Morris frosts his formula with a vanilla premise: most people use only ten percent of their brains, only a special few use more. Authors and screenwriters have explored this premise frequently and often better.*
In fact, the question behind the premise kept nagging me throughout the book. How could one extra percent allow Jonah and the others to tap into all those powers? Was it a trigger point allowing them to access more of their spiritual awareness? Does the brain compress the powers into a few neurons like a .zip file? One of the characters, Reena, tries to explain when she discusses mind verses brain, but Morris opens too many tropes—blocked creative powers, free flowing writing, whole mind verses eleven percent brain—that he never attempts to tie up.
For readers who read occult fiction because it asks those questions, Morris' failure to bring his conjectures to closure constitutes a cardinal sin. Perhaps he intends to explore them in later books, but he allows Rowe's mentor Jonathan to express little concern when Rowe asks him. Readers can only hope Morris returns to them in the next two books. Occult fans will certainly want to read the second after finishing this one.
If you like a good read any any genre, you should give The 11th Percent a shot. You'll know by the end of the book if you want to read further. I enjoyed this one, but I think it's the end of the line for me.
* Most recently in the movie Lucy where Scarlett Johannson leanred to use her entire brain even if it consumed her. Also in the TV series Limitless, where Brian Finch unlocks his brain with the drug NZT. The scripts used drugs as the mind unlocking techniques, but the premise remains the same.
5 = Delicious dialogue, crisp prose, clever characters & compelling plot
4 = Great read, won't want to stop (5 for many reviewers)
3 = Worth buying but…
2 = I will tell you what audience will like this, but other readers might want to look elsewhere
1 = If I review a book this bad I felt seriously compelled to warn you
