After the great Plague descended, the population was decimated...and humans' genetics damaged beyond repair. But there's something about Lucy Fox and her identical twin sister, Margot, that isn't quite right. No one wants to reveal what they are.

Your fate is in your blood…

Welcome to Dominion City.

After the great Plague descended, the world population was decimated…and their genetics damaged beyond repair.

The Lasters wait hopelessly for their genes to self-destruct. The Splicers pay for expensive treatments that might prolong their life. The plague-resistant True Borns are as mysterious as they are feared…

And then there’s Lucy Fox and her identical twin sister, Margot. After endless tests, no one wants to reveal what they are.

When Margot disappears, a desperate Lucy has no choice but to put her faith in the True Borns, led by the charismatic leader, Nolan Storm, and the beautiful but deadly Jared, who tempts her as much as he infuriates her. As Lucy and the True Borns set out to rescue her sister, they stumble upon a vast conspiracy stretching from Dominion’s street preachers to shady Russian tycoons. But why target the Fox sisters?

As they say in Dominion, it’s in the blood.

Praise

"True Born gave me the feels, and I devoured the book in a few short hours. When I was finished, realizing I would have to wait for the next installment, I wished I had slowed down and savored it. But, with its pacing, I doubt I could have stopped myself, even if I had tried. Recommended for fans of Young Adult Dystopian Fiction/Urban Fantasy/Fantasy/Science Fiction." - Wicked Reads

***3,75***

Two sisters, identical twins, born in privilege Upper Circle society, in a dark world devastated by the Plague.

They born conjoined, with the body, but connected with spirit, even after separation.

One is fire, bright and ready to burn out of control, and commands all attentions.

The ot... ...more

By Morris June 01, 2016

I would liken “True Born” to the “Under the Never Sky” series. Not in plot, but in the guilty pleasure type of enjoyment it provides. The similarities include that there’s a world that doesn’t make much sense, though I suspect that will be cleared up in future books, and science that is barely ex... ...more

By Melissa (YA Book Shelf) January 09, 2016

Interesting mix of action in an apocalyptic world where a plague is killing off a large number of the population. There's been a lot of editing from the original, but it was originally published on Wattpad and had over 500k readers, and I can totally see why they were enthused with the story, par... ...more

By Lisa July 19, 2016

The story has so many twists and turns it keeps you on the edge of your seat. All the different types of True Borns are neat to hear about, and to try to picture in my head. The heat between Jared and Lucy is really good, I enjoy the back and forth between them. I enjoy all of the stuff that buil... ...more

as of right now I have a lot of questions. but putting that aside, I actually quite liked this book. I'm getting some mythology background on this, which I'm hoping if it's true, it gets more in depth on later books. with an apocalyptic setting laced with blood, power, ploys, and money, this was... ...more

By Barb (Boxermommyreads) May 10, 2016

I have to be honest and admit I initially found this world a hard one to get into. "True Born" is sort of a dystopian in that it takes place in a world where everything has basically gone to hell. Dominion, the main city, consists of royalty and the poor, and the poor don't stand a chance. The Pl... ...more

By Laura May 05, 2016

What drew me to read this book was the synopsis and I was not disappointed!!!

Well this is a big first for me.

Loved, loved, loved this book. Story line moves at a steady pace.

First, thank you so much Raincoast Books for sending me an early copy to read!

I felt the pain, anger, despair but most importantly, the hope... ...more

True Born tells the story of Lucy, a twin nearing her eighteenth birthday in the dystopian city of Dominion, where plague has wiped out most of the human world and genetics have wreaked havoc on the population, dividing the city into Splicers, Lasters and True Borns.

About the author

L.E. Sterling

L.E. Sterling had an early obsession with sci-fi, fantasy and romance to which she remained faithful even through an M.A. in Creative Writing and a PhD in English Literature - where she completed a thesis on magical representation. She is the author of two previous novels, the cult hit Y/A novel The Originals (under pen name L.E. Vollick), dubbed “the Catcher in the Rye of a new generation” by one reviewer, and the urban fantasy Pluto’s Gate. Originally hailing from Parry Sound, Ontario, L.E. spent most of her summers roaming across Canada in a van with her father, a hippie musician, her brothers and an occasional stray mutt - inspiring her writing career. She currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.
