Lucy’s twin sister, Margot, may be safely back with her—but all is not well in Plague-ravaged Dominion City. The Watchers have come out of hiding, spreading chaos and death throughout the city, and suddenly Lucy finds herself torn between three men with secrets of their own.

Betrayal is a cruel lesson, and the Fox sisters can hardly believe who is behind the plot against them. To survive this deadly game of politics, Lucy is forced to agree to a marriage of convenience. But DNA isn’t the only thing they want from Lucy…or her sister.

As they say in Dominion, rogue genes can never have a happy ending…

The True Born series is best enjoyed in order.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-1/5/18

“True Storm” is a fantastic conclusion to what has been so far a great Imaginative new YA series.
Though book two is still hands down my favourite this definitely comes in a very close second.
With, as usual, fabulously creative world-building skills and an amazingly diverse cast.
This directly from the start places the reader smack bang into the middle of the story and with so many ups and downs and twists and turns I really had no clue what was going to occur next.
And if I’m bloody honest here, I had the pants shocked off of me on numerous occasions.

This is non-stop action with some major shockers thrown into the assortment just for shit and giggles and also to help muddy the waters further.
I really wasn’t prepared for some of the happenings in “True Storm” and did find myself crying like a baby as the story gradually unfolded to its ultimate conclusion.

“True Storm” itself, finally gives us answers to certain questions and loose ends left over from previous instalments.
A sense of closure is finally offered, rounding things up nicely for the reader.
One slight criticism from me know, that ending!!
I would have maybe liked things expanded on slightly.
Clarified a trifle more, the eventual fallout with Storm and Jared I would have really liked to see play out to its foregone conclusion.
I just think It would have added an extra dimension and depth to the proceedings if things had been spun that way.
And also can I just say, after all that denial from Lu and Jared about there relationship things just seemed to me to be slightly anti-climatic in nature.

It was all wrapped up a bit too quickly and pat for my particular liking.
Another slight gripe was I didn’t feel certain characters in this book got the page time they deserved when it came to there fates.
I know obscure much!!!
but I really can’t say much more without giving too much information away and spoiling this excellent tale for others.
But what I will say is this.
one of my favourite characters here got a pretty raw deal in my opinion.
And I was not impressed with how quickly he was brushed over and moved on with, just saying.

On a final note, this instalment is slightly friskier than the others.
Though it is still completely suitable for a younger audience it’s only kissing and some mild petting but just thought I’d mention it.
So that’s it from me, this was a great YA read that I really did enjoy.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “True Storm (True Born Trilogy #3)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
