  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    It was so darn good to be back in this world with these characters. Still one of my favorites series from this author and with all the developments in this novella, I can only hope more or at the very least, a spin off is to follow.

    4.5 stars!I love this series and I'm so glad Jennifer Lynn Barnes published this novella/epilogue/last case novella.Twelve is gripping and entertaining. I love seeing my favorite Naturals, I missed them so much. I want to reread original series now...The composition of the novella is perfectly balanced between flashbacks, the present time and the mindset of the killer.Cassie and her friends are now all grown up. I'm glad to see them still togethe...

    To be honest I didn't really feel like there was enough character development/growth shown in this story to warrant a post-series novella. We're to believe characters to have gone five years since the final book and.. nothing has changed? And those flashbacks, I didn't really get the point. Hadn't we already known all that information?Anyway, while this was hardly a big commitment as far as read-time goes, I ended up enjoying the teaser for Barne...

    I hadn't realized how much a genuinely missed these characters, it was like revisiting family. I hope she releases more books in this series, I can never seem to get enough.

    5 out of 5 Stars Super quick read! Twelve read just like the originals. Though this did just make me even sadder that this series is over. I will always love this family. Highly recommend to all Naturals fans. Can't wait for the next new series from Barnes!
  • Emily Ross
    I really liked this novella. I particularly liked the flashbacks to the age of twelve for all of the Naturals, though I think Michael and Celine’s were my favourites. The plot was quick and easy. It was easy to guess who the UNSUB was relatively early on, but knowing that didn’t really impact on the story.It was just so cool to see all the Naturals together (well, I suppose semi-together seeing as they’re split between Colorado and Quantico...

    For the FIRST TIME, I knew what was happening and knew who the killer was. Hah!

    Review to come!

    Loved being able to revisit one of my favorite series!!

    4 STARS FOR "TWELVE" BY JENNIFER LYNN BARNESWhat a treat to be able to have an extended epilogue to the series in the form of a novella! Twelve picks up five years after the ending of Bad Blood, where readers get to catch up with Cassie, Sloane, Lia, Michael, and Dean, and see where their lives and careers have taken them in the time in between. The novella itself was a quick read and easy to follow along with, but instead of just fluff that most...
  • Mara
    I was happy to see a novella come out for this series that does a kind of "where are they now?" However, it does basically beg to have the series continue! I want more! :) That said, this is a novella that picks an appropriate story for its length and has a clear beginning, middle, and end, rather than just being a "day in the life" or extended anecdote. For that, I commend the author.

    Ugh Now i remember why these books were so tedious. How many times do i have to read how NOT normal Cassie and her deadass boring boyfriend are. What the Naturals are. What they can do. I've read the previous 4 books, godamn it!. I KNOW ALREADY. I don't Jennifer Lynn Barnes to be a pactriculary bad writer because i really enjoyed her The Fixer duology but this one... seriously
  • Christina (Between Bookends)
    Twelve is not like any of the novellas that I have read. The short form of the novella actually worked for the story, making it feel like this was the way it was always meant to be told. It also had a great pace. The only thing that made this story shorter was that there were less obstacles for the characters to overcome when dealing with the case. There was plenty of time to spend with the characters that I love while also building an interestin...

    The Naturals series is one of my favorite young adult series. When it ended I was sad, but knew that I would enjoy going back and re-reading the books down the road. I was absolutely elated when I saw that Jennifer Lynn Barnes had published a novella in the series that took place 5 years after the last book. It was like having her read my mind and learn exactly what I needed in my life.Although the novella was a quick read, I still savored every ...
  • Aline
    Twelve by Jennifer Lynn Barnes *5.0 stars* 01/06/2018. ..I loved the Naturals series and of course I loved the idea of having a glimpse on the lives of the characters 5 years later. What I liked the most on this novella was to remember how to feel inside of the book, inside of the characters minds. With all questions they make themselves in order to analyse and profile, I caught myself working with them, getting close to the answers at the same t...

    I have not been shy about how much I adore this series. This novella was exactly what I didn’t know I needed, and it was great to see all of the characters together again. The dynamic and writing is still the same, and it still had the psychological thrill that I crave!

    I'm just so sad there aren't going to be any more books in this series BUT I am super into the promo for her next book.

    I’ve loved this series so much! This wrap-up was final chapter in this story that I didn’t know I needed. ❤ I’ve loved this series so much! This wrap-up was final chapter in this story that I didn’t know I needed. ❤️

    I loved it. I want more.... I have no idea what I'm going to do... I just want more of this series, these characters. I just want more. I don't want it to end.
  • Sarah
    I love the entire Naturals series. Reading this book was like catching up with old friends. Yeah, it's a novella, so it was brief, but still... seeing the characters 5 years later was awesome. I have no idea if Barnes plans to write more in this series... but I hope so!
  • Michelle
    Short but good, this gives cool glimpses into each Naturals' childhood, finds another Natural AND previews a brand new book called Little White Lies, which starts out awesomely but doesn't come out until 2019 :(
  • Amber
    Another amazing, albeit short, story in this world. I can't tell whose twelve year old story I liked the most. I want all the stories set in this world please and thank you.
  • Emily
    Devoured this entire series.
  • Jordan (The Heart of a Book Blogger)
    This review and more can be found at The Heart of a Book Blogger.Twelve is the sequel novella that takes place five years after Jennifer Lynn Barnes’s The Naturals series ends. I was so excited to learn about this unexpected addition to The Naturals world and I was not disappointed. I loved seeing where the characters are after the series as well as learning more about each of their pasts. This novella made me realize how much I missed these ch...

    In Twelve, we learn what happens to the Naturals team as they move into their twenties. Some are training to become real FBI agents, but for Cassie who is now the senior member of The Naturals unit, life has remained pretty much the same. In this new case, Cassie has been called in because a girl she once rescued is threatening to jump from the top of a lighthouse unless her team investigates a crime that she has uncovered. Each member of the tea...
