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.

 “Another great book by L. E. Sterling! [...] It was thrilling, engaging, and I had a hard time putting it down.” –Meghan Lloyd, Lady with a Quill

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.

So "True North" is the second instalment in this fascinating dystopian YA Trilogy.
And out of the two, this was hands down my favourite.
This just seemed to have a much more intense vibe overall than the previous book.
The action here was amped up and pum ...more

By Morris June 07, 2017

“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 ...more

Full Review to follow@...

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 ...more

I got an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review :) this is the sequel in a series that you really need to read in order, cause otherwise you will be spoiled about some major events, and also cause you will be absolutely lost without the previous knowledge. ...more

By Olivia March 28, 2017

“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 M ...more

By Barb (Boxermommyreads) April 25, 2017

"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 ...more

By Hart's February 10, 2017

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. ...more

By Stella April 03, 2017

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

GAH! I feel like a complete fangirl with this series but I can't stop gushing over and over about it. This was my favorite novel of the series. SO MUCH happens in this book. It brings the plot really to the top of the read and throws you into the deep end.

Not only do we get new characters in this ...more

**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. ...more

By Wendy October 03, 2017

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 a ...more

I received an e-copy of this book from Entangled Crush (via NetGalley) in the run up to the publication of the third book in this series, True Storm, and in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions in this review are entirely my own.
So first book in this series is just mind-blowing. ...more

3.5 stars

‘True North’ is the second book in the ‘True Born’ dystopian trilogy. Book 1, ‘True Born’ does an excellent job introducing readers to the characters, their societal hierarchy and history, and the overarching plot of the series.

Lucy spends half this book aiding True Born Nolan Storm with in ...more

More intriguing with each page

By Ashley September 07, 2017

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 ...more

By Sarah December 24, 2017

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 ...more
