Product Description

Jonah Rowe, a bored accountant and aspiring novelist, is sick and tired of his job as an accountant. He is burnt out from all the office gossip, politics, and double talk, and he longs for his life to matter. Truth be told, Jonah wants anything besides the lame routine of coasting through his workday....only to psych himself up enough to do it all over again the next day. He only wishes that his life had some meaning.

Amidst the combination of writer's block and society's expectations to have a "real" 9-5 job, Jonah gets his wish.

His world is turned completely upside down one evening when his vision inexplicably turns blue for several moments. He then receives a warning from a spectral visitor that not only is he in danger, but everything in his life is about to change.

Overnight, Jonah transforms from an overworked, underpaid accountant to the centerpiece of a spectral battle. Will he rise to the occasion? Can he accept that everything he knows about life and death is completely wrong? And, most importantly, will he be able to comprehend and harness the power of the mysterious 11th Percent?

Follow Jonah's journey in this new breed of ghost story!

Fantastic book I really loved the story that was put togethere I fell in love with Jonah just a real nice likable guy just an average day person.
Things begin to change for jonah and a world of spirits open up, but this is not a vicious book its actually quite beautiful and I would like to think thats how afterlife is and still being able to stay with the one you love once your gone, its takes a little bit to get in to the book but please do not let that deter you as there is a story being told to get to where it opens up and you think you have it nailed as to what's going and boom left center it changes and will blow your mind!
I am looking forward to the next book im sure it will be loaded with awesome character's and another fantastic story line, please one click and check this book out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Untapped power of the mind 24 August 2015
By The Minter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The 11th Percent is a fast-paced fantasy/action novel by T.H. Morris. The title is based on the theory that most people only use ten percent of their brain power, but Morris suggests that there is a subset of the population with an extra one percent. These so-called Eleventh Percenters have a high level of creativity but are plagued with self-doubt, experience emotions more strongly, and can communicate with spirits.

Jonah Rowe works at a boring job with an overbearing boss, struggles with writer’s block while attempting to complete manuscripts for his novels, lives alone and has few friends, and is still grieving the death of his beloved grandmother. A conversation with his boss in the first few chapters foreshadows hidden reserves of self-confidence and inner strength, which earned my respect and make me instantly like him as a character. After a particularly trying day at work, Jonah leaves and starts seeing visions-the world has turned blue, there are spirits and a cat that remains his companions throughout the novel. Later that night, he decides to go out for a while, when he is accosted by two malevolent spirits. A kindly spirit named Jonathan intervenes, and Jonah arrives at an estate where other Eleven Percenters stay. Feeling he has finally found his place with his new friends, he decides to develop his eleven-percent potential to its fullest. But there is danger lurking, and Jonah may be the only one who can unravel the web of deceit that he and his friends have been wrapped in.

Morris creates excellent characters. The reader will feel an instant connection to Jonah, and later will meet his new friends: the health-nut painter Reena, the fitness-obsessed sculptor Terrence, even the musical but disagreeable Trip. I especially liked Jonathan, a spirit protector who serves as the mentor for Jonah and his friends. A few of his characters are “epitome” characters who fall flat (such as the sycophantic, tartish Jessica) but they are so minor to the story that their further development is not essential. For the most part, the characterization is excellent and Morris does a great job at making the reader feel connected to them.

The plot is fast paced and provides lots of action and twists. It is not predictable by any means. Morris creates a lot of suspense and keeps the reader guessing. He does take a few convenient fictional liberties (such as one character’s ability to freeze out a fire), but they do not create plot holes or lessen believability. The flawless narration is one of the best parts of this book. Morris has an outstanding ability to choose the right words to convey his meaning. This is part gives the books a philosophical feel. There were so many quotes I loved from this book but one of y favorites was “The brain resides in the head but the mind encompasses the entire body.” Indeed, one of the major themes in The 11th Percent is the mastery of the mind over the body. The Eleventh Percenters can only reach their full potential once they learn strict mind control.

A highly recommended read, The 11th Percent is the first in a trilogy. I am looking forward to the other two books. Five stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, Read it, & Love it!! 30 September 2015
By Ariel Mathis - Published on Amazon.com

I'm going to be honest here, and tell you why I bought this book. I was doing some reviews for a lovely lady named Cindy D. Witherspoon. As we were talking of her latest release, she sent me a little sneak peak of what's about to happen in her next installment. I read it and had more questions, and one of them being, "JOHNATHAN, WHO'S JOHNATHAN? Wait don't tell me, I don't want to know, I'll find out later." So, later came and she told me she's doing a collaboration with T.H. Morris and they're meshing up their series. How cool is that? If you know me, then I want to know ALL there is to know before going into the next installment of...well...ANYTHING!! Therefore, I picked up The 11th Percent. I am so glad I did. I wish I would've picked it up sooner because it was a triumph!! I'm refusing to go into this book as far as what happens because frankly, you should just read the book. I will say, that I give the author cool points for originality. It's a remarkable tale unlike any other. I do have to say that I loved the way the author chose his words and how they came out, to me, as a reader. Truly a gift with words. The feelings I felt while reading were not forced. I was rooting for Jonah from the very first page. He was real. I enjoyed the friendships Jonah made. Once again, it felt real. After reading this story, I know I'm on to something big here!! So very excited to see how this series is going to mesh with The Oracle Series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Which is a good thing, I think 2 November 2014
By K. Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First of all, I totally thought this was a Halloween book. Definitely not a Halloween book!

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.

SPOILERS***

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.

END SPOILERS******

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.

4 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Take on Spirit World 27 October 2016
By Emily Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a fun take on the battle for the spirit world and good versus evil. I found the story engaging, the ideas fresh, and the characters interesting. I loved the way he chose to frame the hero’s unique powers.

The plot itself was a little standard but its strength is the interesting premise and the fascinating interactions with the spirit world. Critiques: I'm always averse to the use of terms like the b-word and ragging, and of course disrespecting tofu. Also the book is a little rough on format and editing.

Morris is a wonderful story teller with a really cool premise and I kept turning the pages to learn what happened next. Fun book and recommended for lovers of paranormal or spirit writing.
5.0 out of 5 stars NOT your average ghost story! 23 December 2015
By Donna M - Published on Amazon.com

If you are looking for a fresh new take on the paranormal/supernatural world, look no further!
The story centers around a character named Jonah Rowe. While there are ghosts/spirits, good guys and bad guys, this is NOT your average ghost story.What if certain people had a portion of their brains that they could utilize that gave them extra powers so to speak. What if these powers helped keep our world and the spirit world in balance....??? Jonah has to discover who he really is and how these questions pertain to him..where does he fit into this issue... I for one plan to follow him through this series to find out!
I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this refreshingly different yet captivating look into the world T.H.Morris has created through his character Jonah Rowe. I was pulled into this exciting new world immediately and had a very hard time putting this book down. The story is fast paced and keeps you engaged throughout the book. The characters are believable and constantly evolving as the story progresses. The world Morris creates truly comes alive. There are twists and turns and just when you think you have hings figured out...PLOT TWIST! You will never see it coming :) This book would make a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys the supernatural/paranormal genre! I'm hooked on this series and this author definitelyhas a new fan!
