    One thought on “True North”

    1. Lucy Fox is left behind in Dominion by her parents and sister and must ally herself with Nolan Storm who is a true born to survive. She helps Nolan gain access to the Upper Crust in exchange he is her guardian and protects her. Lucy spends most of the book worried about her twin sister Margot and finding her because Margot was kidnapped and taken by their parents. I haven't read the first book so I spent most of the book feeling confused about what was going on because I was clearly missing info [...]

    2. True North is the second book in the True Born series which has introduced the world of Dominion City. A plague has descended upon the residents killing off a good portion of the population. Those that are left are divided into three groups, the Lasters, the Splicers and the True Born. Lasters are those who are beyond saving and on the last of their life, Splicers are those rich enough to keep up with procedures to prolong their life and the True Born are a bit of genetic mutation that are immun [...]

    3. If we listened closely to our bones, fought hard enough, showed the world we'd not back down, my sister and I could pull each other from the jaws of fate* *2 / 5 Unfortunately, for a good chunk of True North absolutely nothing happens. I read this shortly after finishing True Born and what I expected was badass action scenes, exploration of Russia and how it differs to Dominion, more information about True Borns, more information about the preachers, and to discover the truth about the Fox siste [...]

    4. “True North” is the second book in the “True Born” trilogy. I found it to be much more fun and less confusing than the first.Part of the reason it is more fun is that I have accepted the somewhat ridiculous premise and beyond sketchy science and just decided to go along for the ride. There is a new character, Alistair, who is intriguing and has me anxious for the next book to learn more. The romance is also ramped up quite a bit for those who were waiting for that.If you enjoyed “True [...]

    5. you can read this review on my blog as well!I know I'm calling this post disappointing reads, but for this book, it's actually very inaccurate. For something to be disappointing, you would need to have expectations. I didn't have any sort of expectations for this book--I hate the first one, and I hated this one even more. (So why read it, Mith? Because I apparently like causing myself pain.)Let me start with Lucy, who is an absolute IDIOT. God, I wanted to like her, but she is so stupid. And it' [...]

    6. True North!!! First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.  There isn't going to be a summary because this is the second book in a trilogy. Raiting this book actually hurt my soul. Finishing this book was even more painful.I didn't totally love the first book, but I actually still enjoyed it. I also saw lots of potential for the second book. Sadly, all the good things I wanted to happen to the book and the story, didn't happen at all. I still love the story itself, the idea be [...]

    7. Full Review to follow@abookishescape/2017/04The End, the reader sees firsthand the plans that have been laid out for years that are now coming to fruition. I’m happy to report there is a lot of action, and explosions, and shocking revelations. I’m going to say that again in the event you missed it the first time. There are SHOCKING REVELATIONS!!! The Dominion City rubber meets the Russian road in an eerily plausible way, that is sure to delight readers everywhere. Lock and key let anyone try [...]

    9. “True North” is a fantastic continuation of the True Born series. Lucy is on her own with her parents and twin, Margot, gone- most likely to Russia. Lucy is in the care of Storm and the True Borns. The book begins with her helping them at parties and the like, while she is itching to go and locate Margot. Eventually, it becomes clear that the promises Storm made may not be ones he will keep, and Lucy sets out on her own to find Margot.The book is steeped in mystery about the two girls. We be [...]

    10. I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 3 Stars Young Adult age-range: 12+, depending on the maturity of the reader. Violence, kissing and non-detailed sexual situations. True North was a book I was highly anticipating, after the events that happened in True Born. Dominion is set in a plague-torn landscape amongst True Born, genetically spliced humans, and Lasters. Political machinations drive the plot.I’m writing my initial thoughts at 45% into True North. After th [...]

    11. "True North" picks up right where "True Born" left off and is packed full of excitement and action. And even though I may have enjoyed book one a tad bit more, this is still a strong installment in Sterling's series. I think for the most part, "True North" is setting the scene for something major to happen in the next book. Yet, don't fret, there is still plenty going on.As the book starts, Lucy is still working with Storm in Dominion City and together they are trying to move into a position of [...]

    12. I assumed this was the last book, but pretty sure we've got a lot more to find out. So now to wait for another one!! Full review to come on my blog tomorrow.

    13. This book was surprisingly intense. While I didn't read the first book, so I was a little confused by the terms and timeline, I still enjoyed the story. The pace kept me hooking, the plot was intriguing, and the tension between Lucy and Jared was palpable. Well written book.

    14. I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.Lucy is now living with the True Born's under Storm's protection. Storm promised he'd help find her sister Margot. In return Lucy's place in the upper circle allows Storm access to the Dominion's elite to make connections and gather information. But Lucy is tired of waiting to learn about her sister's fate and takes matters into her own hands, despite the danger.There much we don't know about what is going on in Dominion and [...]

    15. I enjoyed the first installment in this series, I really did. I was looking forward to reading True North but it was a bit of a letdown. I felt that the plot only picked up about half-way through. Lucy's relationship with Jared also frustrated me. This 'I want you but I can't have you' was interesting enough at some point but it is way too over-done now. However I believe that the ending was quite gratuitous but I can't say that it has left we wanting more.P. S. Many thanks to NerGalley, the aut [...]

    16. Plague has ravaged Lucy's world. On the eve of her and Margot's reveal, Lasters attacked her home and she was forced to run. Now Margot's missing, Lucy is living with True Born Nolan Storm, unorthodox magic has been loosed upon the land, and she's all turned around when it comes to her fiercest protector, Jared True Born Price. Even as she despairs over her circumstances, Lucy helps Storm navigate the Upper Circle. Wanting nothing more than to find her sister, Lucy finally makes some choices in [...]

    17. This book was really intense. The story continued on well from the first book and I found myself so excited to see what would happen next. While some elements were a little easy to see coming I found that it didn’t affect my opinion of the story all that much. I found that Jared annoyed me a little more in this book but I really liked seeing Lucy’s character again as well as the interesting Nolan Storm. Very much looking forward to where the society progresses in the third book. Excellent! 4 [...]

    18. Words simply cannot express how much I need this book. I can't believe Tuesday is the big day it's almost here! Eep!THE REVIEW:I will start off by saying, if you are new to the series and want to start with a review of book 1, True Born, you can find my review on . I highly recommend reading these books in order, as the second makes so much more sense if you’ve read the first! I went back and re-read True Born right before I dove into True North, and I’m so glad I did, because it was just as [...]

    19. **Actual Rating: 3.5**At the end of True Born, Lucy and Margot were separated. Now, she lived as Nolan Storm’s ward and acted at the gateway to the Upper Circle—on the condition that Storm and his entourage help her get back her sister and figure out why her parents took her in the first place. Although not everything was as it seemed in the world of Dominion, and things were even more complicated than Lucy, or even Storm, could have realized. This was one of my most-anticipated books of 201 [...]

    20. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Rating: 2.5 starsTalk about Second Book Syndrome. Despite really loving the first book (see here for my review), I struggled to get into this. It took 25% of the book to actually get interesting for me, so it's a miracle I didn't DNF it at some point.At the end of True Born, the first book in the trilogy, twin sisters Lucy and Margot are separated. Margot goes off with their parents and some random dude to Russia, w [...]

    21. More people need to be reading this series - more teens and adults, alike. It's a series I am absolutely shocked does not come up in every bookish conversation. I'm actually completely floored when I mention the first title, True Born, to other readers and they've never heard of it. It's a title I always highly recommend, and now with the release of True North, I'm more certain now than ever before that L.E. Sterling's True Born trilogy is going to be a major game changer in not only young adult [...]

    22. I had enjoyed the first book and now semi-enjoyed the second book. I felt that the second book had too many details surrounding other things instead of focusing on finding the sister. In fact it still not have been reveal about what the sisters are and what it could mean to their world. I did like the little push and pull romance between Jared and Lucy. However I wish there was more of the push between them. I also felt that things were being dragged out to make this story. As a reader I did get [...]

    23. Such a great read and exciting new series!In the dystopian future of America, the city of Dominion is ruled by a rich high society that can afford to Splice their genes to help them survive the Plague that is decimating their world. However, the Fox family of the high society is hiding a secret in the blood of twin sisters Lucy and Margot which can change the world forever. To survive and discover this secret, Lucy finds herself being lead by a True Born (Nolan Storm), and guarded by Jared Price [...]

    24. This is Very Late. I read this book and for some reason just couldn't put my thoughts into words. So *Ahem*This book had just as much action, WTF-is-going-on-???-!!!-???-ness, brain exploding revelations, plot twists, and enough swoon worthy moments to keep a fangirl on her toes as the first book. Some people find all those qualities to be a bit overwhelming in a book. I feel sorry for them. The only thing I was angry about at the end of this book was the fact that the third one wasn't out yet.

    25. This book, 2nd in the trilogy, leaves many unanswered questions that will need to be resolved in book 3. I got a bit tired of the angst between Lu and Jared. It was rehashed a LOT in this novel. But the plot had a neat twist into Russia. I liked the description of "the Elephant."

    26. Still liked it, but I HATE when authors prematurely end books just so they can make a series a trilogy! Didn’t seem like enough happened plot-wise for this book to have ended, which makes me worried about what the next book will look like

    27. Great entry into the True Born trilogy. This second novel both answers and reveals new questions. I enjoyed the continued world building and can't wait to read the final installment.

    28. Overall I really enjoyed the books. Having to wait so long for the third is killing me. Altogether I really enjoyed the first one more but that doesn't mean I didn't love love the second one!

    29. J’attendais ce tome 2 depuis presque un an, au point de m’arracher les cheveux.Quatre mois après l’attaque-surprise, qui a valu la destruction de la maison familiale de Lucy, ainsi que l’enlèvement de Margot. Lucy est toujours à Dominion à se ronger les sangs, elle ne sait pas où sa sœur se trouve, et ses parents ont également disparus.Le seul espoir de Lucy est Storm, le True Born prêt à prendre le pouvoir sur Dominion et en politique. Il lui promet de l’aider à retrouver sa [...]
