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.


"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

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

What drew me to read this book was the synopsis and I was not disappointed!!! The story line was well put together, the characters were outstanding and the world building was so amazing that I found myself becoming a part of the story. I cannot wait to see what comes next and recommend it to one... ...more

I am looking forward to this one as it sounds like a mixture of dystopian\post apocalyptic/shifter genres all thrown in together.

This is a newer part of my "Review" where I look back at what my comments were on Goodreads whilst reading... ...more

First, thank you so much Raincoast Books for sending me an early copy to read! It's been quite some time since I've gone into a dystopian world but True Born brings back all the feelings associated with a good dystopian read. I felt the pain, anger, despair but most important... ...more

**I received this book via NetGalley through Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review**

I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I started this book. I haven’t read anything dystopian (that doesn't involve aliens) in a while, so I enjoyed visi...

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

By nat. May 30, 2016

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

True Born. A dystopian world where money is everything. The plague has hit the human race hard. Survival comes at a price. The rich can buy it and the gifted are outcast.

The Fox family are in the heart of the upper circle. The elite families stick together. They are basically upper class stuck u... ...more

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 other one, the sparrow, unnoticed and...
