Abandoned by her family in Plague-ridden Dominion City, eighteen-year-old Lucy Fox has no choice but to rely upon the kindness of the True Borns, a renegade group of genetically enhanced humans, to save her twin sister, Margot. But Nolan Storm, their mysterious leader, has his own agenda. When Storm backtracks on his promise to rescue Margot, Lucy takes her fate into her own hands and sets off for Russia with her True Born bodyguard and maybe-something-more, the lethal yet beautiful Jared Price. In Russia, there's been whispered rumors of Plague Cure.

While Lucy fights her magnetic attraction to Jared, anxious that his loyalty to Storm will hurt her chances of finding her sister, they quickly discover that not all is as it appears…and discovering the secrets contained in the Fox sisters' blood before they wind up dead is just the beginning.

As they say in Dominion, sometimes it’s not you…it’s your DNA.

The True Born series is best enjoyed in order.

True North is the second book in the True Born series. The story is continuous but does contain catch up information. I would recommend starting with Book One. Lucy is left in the hands of True Born leader Nolan Storm. Her family have completely disappeared. Lucy is desperate to get her sister back but the trail is cold. Nolan Storm has his own plan. He wants to become established in the socialite spotlight. He needs Lucy's help. He has promised to help her get her sister back but is too busy with his own agendas. Jared is still keeping a close but distant relationship with Lucy. She finds him so frustrating. Lucy knows Margot is in Russia and when she makes a new friend a plan is formed. She has a travel companion and a destination in mind. This is a rescue mission and we uncover more of the mystery. The plague is still killing people and the world is still dysfunctional. This series is boarder line horror with some of the undesirable events. It's also an intense will they/won't they romance. I'm really enjoying this series. Lucy is an interesting character. The mystery keeps me guessing and Jared is a brooding alpha male. 4 stars out of 5. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first. That’s why I don’t usually read 2 books by the same author one right after the other. Don’t know if it’s my issue or the book’s. Still, good story elements and characters. Gotta love the romance aspect!

“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 Born,” you will love “True North.” This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.

I hate that I have to wait for the next book. I love the story and the characters. I like how I'm still guessing what the outcome will be.

I am looking forward to reading this book, returning to Dominion City to learn more about the twin sisters, Lucinda and Margot Fox and what is happening to them now. Has Lucy made the right decision to join the renegades in the hopes of both changing the world they are living in and at the same time saving her sister Margot. Once again I was fortunate enough to be sent an invitation to request this book and then sent a widget to access the book via Netgalley from Entangled Teen. My "final thoughts" or first immediate thoughts upon finishing this book were that I thoroughly enjoyed the to and fro of the on off fledgling relationship between Lucinda and Jared....Who or What is Alistair and why is he so eager to help on what could be a deadly mission? Will Nolan Storm really help the girls or are they just a means to an end.....? Some questions answered....even more to be asked...looking forward to the next book!

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review. Thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review True North by L.E. Sterling! True North continues with the the mystery of Lucy and Margot. I still enjoy the relationship between Lucy and Jared and the story's mystery is being chipped away in this second book of the series. I don't want to give anything away, but what is happening to Margot is disturbing and horrific. The series does not end with this book and I think I will re- read the entire series, one book after the other, once it's completed. 4 stars for a creative dystopian world and character building!

Let me say that for some reason I had in my head that this was going to be the final book, even though everything obviously says "trilogy". I am so glad it is not, though, because there are still so many unanswered questions, and I really need the romance between Lucy and Jared to finish the course that it is on, a bumpy, nail-biting slow course, but one I'm rooting for nonetheless. This book starts out with Lucy trying to help Nolan Storm, the leader of the True Borns, in exchange for his help in finding her twin sister Margot, who disappeared along with their parents, after they were attacked at a party at their house. Still in the Dominion, Lucy is working with scientists to try to figure out what the huge tree that has shown up means. Along with trying to stay safe from the preacher and other gangs on the street that will kill Lucy or even trade her into slavery if they get her hands on it. She also has to go to parties with Storm and use her connection to the elite because of her family to help him get his agenda across. She's lost her connection with Margot, and it seems that Storm keeps finding one reason after another for why he can't help her just yet. Finally Lucy decides to take matters into her own hands, and she sneaks out on her own to find Margot, to find her way to Russia with the help of a street vagrant named Alistair, who helped her out of a bind one day. She has to slip past Jared, her personal bodyguard, and also who she can't seem to stop thinking about. And while he seems to have the same feelings for her, he continues to push her away, insisting he can't, it's not right. His continued refusal makes Lucy doubt how much of his behavior is real, and how much is a show to help Storm keep her in line and working for him. They will go on a trip, will run into so many other dangers, and learn that things are maybe worse than they'd thought, that the danger has spread further than anyone had guessed. Now I am eager for book 3, to find out just how everything will wrap up, like I said, especially with Jared!

pooled ink Reviews: This book has a quick pace that had me reading for hours unaware of how quickly time was passing me by. It was a very fast read! This series thus far I find is captivating, imaginative, and wonderfully unique. It’s not quite like anything I’ve read before and it’s holding me captive still. I anxiously await to read what happens next! TRUE NORTH intertwines myth and science to create a future both frightening and intoxicating. Bursting with need, curling with mystery, and sighing with power, TRUE NORTH hauls the plot forwards seamlessly. Once caught in its claws you won’t be able to stop reading until you know all.

Get ready for another wonderful read! I could not wait to jump back into the world of Dominion City! Lucy and Margot...Two pieces of a puzzle, I could not wait to find out what secrets they hold. Sadly, yet expectantly not all is revealed in the second installment but much is! Everything is bleak with the world and looking bleaker still. There is just enough backstory to refresh the readers mind of what happened in the last book but not too much where it becomes redundant. This story still contains all the delicious elements of the first and maybe adding a dash of mystery. I am very good about figuring things out quickly and I am still at a loss. This is very exciting for me because I am sitting at the edge of my metaphorical seat and will remain there until the next installment. I don’t see how everything will tie together I just hope beyond the stars above that we get a HEA. The Story, Storm is back Lucy is still here though her heart has fled along with her sister. There is a plan, Lucy will help Storm and Storm will help Lucy. Quid pro quo right? Wrong! So wrong, it is not funny…Not one bit. The story picks up right after the ending of the first. Margot went willingly to Russia but Lucy knows better she knows the sacrifice her sister made was to keep Lucy safe. Though Lucy is the rule follower and fixer of the Fox sisters something has changed. Fundamentally what used to drive Lucy is no longer there. She knows something nefarious is going on and she will stop at nothing to find out exactly who she and her sister are. Things are moving albeit slowly but just when it seems like attentions will turn to finding Margot a new distraction arises amongst the remaining population and Lucy is let down again. This prompts her to make a rash decision that she cannot turn away from. Thankfully she has made a strange alliance and she is not alone. The Characters, this may be a bit of a spoiler but we don’t see the vile parents in this installment. I will also say the reader learns much about them and it is beyond mortifying. I want them to explain themselves and pay for their evil actions. Egads this installment picks up the steam factor between Lucy and her love. One thing I don’t understand is why they are dancing around their true emotions for each other. Both are hooked to each other! Just get married already and have superhuman super cute panther shifting babies already! Yeesh! Lol! The tension and attraction is very well written I feel what Lucy feels so I want her happiness. Key characters have secret agendas and there is a lot of mystery surrounding everyone from the most malevolent to the most benevolent. The 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 to control one of these girls and get ready for a fight. Lucy may not know exactly what happened to them and why but she will fight with every ounce of her being to protect her other half. I don’t know how everything will come to a close but what I do know is I’ve become very attached to these characters and I can’t wait to see what is next! I also can’t wait to find out more about Lucy’s ne

“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 begin to get some answers, but there are so many questions that we don’t feel as though we gain the right answers in this book. My only complaint about this book is that it is too short! I groaned when I realized I had hit the end- it’s too good and I wish I could continue it right now! The wait until the next book will be way too long! The world is built a lot more in this book than the first, so for people who found the first to be lacking in that area, I think it will improve with this installment. As we see the rest of the world, we learn more about what is going on and what it’s like for people who are not in the Upper Circle and get a taste for other countries (though it is still limited with the fast pace). There is some really intense romantic tension between Lucy and Jared- it was a little rough at times because I love them together and really wanted them to be together, but it does fit their personalities and plot pretty well. Overall, this was a fantastic, fast-paced installment to what is quickly becoming one of my favorite series, and I cannot wait for the next book! Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.
