True Storm is the third and last book in the True Born Trilogy which has introduced the world of Dominion City. A plague has descended upon the residents killing off a good portion of the population. Those that are left are divided into three groups, the Lasters, the Splicers and the True Born. Lasters are those who are beyond saving and on the last of their life, Splicers are those rich enough to keep up with procedures to prolong their life and the True Born are a bit of genetic mutation that ...more

"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 goin

True Storm is the explosive final chapter in the True Born series. You will not be disappointed. It's gritty and holds the dystopian theme right to the end.

Lucinda Fox is back in Dominion city. She has always been the sensible twin. Her duty is to marry well and carry on the family legacy. Her father is a powerful man and the family name is well known to the upper circle. Lucy had to decide between her heart and her head. Jared has always been her protected, the mysterious Ali has been her clos

As soon as I heard this one was due for release I knew I just had to read it. I'd just read the third book in a trilogy and loved it so I whilst I really wanted to read this book, I also didn't want it to end either.

The back ground of this cover is a gorgeous blue-ish purple colour, I love it. The cove has the bones/antlers on the font once again which makes it eye-catching as well as fitting in with the other book covers in this series. I think the covers for the whole series are amazing and wo

Woo...let me calm down for a sec...

I loved the first book in the trilogy, but the sequel suffered from second book syndrome. That being said, I couldn't leave this series unfinished, with its shapeshifters and darkly beautiful covers.

I'll admit I couldn't quite remember how the second book finished. I remembered the explosions and the escape from the facility, but did they get home? How? This final book opens up with Lucy at a party being felt up by a drunk guy whil

True Storm is the third and final installment in author L.E. Sterling's True Born Trilogy. As a summary of how we got here, a plague descended upon the world killing off a good portion of the population. Those that are left are divided into three groups, the Lasters, the Splicers and the True Born. Lasters are those who are beyond saving and on the last of their life, Splicers are those rich enough to keep up with procedures

"True Storm" is the conclusion to the trilogy I have been loving since the first book. In this unique world, a plague has infected humanity, resulting in a old-style Western atmosphere. At the age of 18, everyone is classified according to their plague status- Laster (will die from the plague), Splicer (they can have genetic therapies to live a little longer- if they have the money), or True Born (mutations which make them immune to the plague but manifest in animal-like characteristics such as ...more

Hands down, all 3 covers for this series are so incredibly gorgeous! I am a cover snob, I am totally aware of that, and I will pick up a book without knowing anything about the plot if the cover grabs me. That being said, the True Born series have three of my favorite covers- and I picked up the first book because it was so pretty and I read the rest because I could not stop! And it is nice that the covers have so much meaning to the actual

*Note: This review may contain potential spoilers for readers who have yet to read True Born and True North*

When fellow readers ask me for a unique sci-fi series that won't disappoint, I always recommend L. E. Sterling's True Born trilogy. If you've read my reviews on True Born and True Storm (you can find both here, and here) then you know I've yet to be disappointed by L. E. Sterling's magical way with spinning an intense sci-fi tale.

I was apprehensive to read True Storm. True Born was one of my favorites, however True North was a slight letdown. Perhaps it was my mood at the time. In fear True Storm wouldn't live up to my expectations, as well as having reader's block, I dragged my feet on reading this novel.

I don't have the words. This novel was fantastic. I want more. I want an entire other novel for after this one and I know that I don't get one and that makes me sad. This novel hurt my heart but it was such a journey from start to finish.

L.E. Sterling does so much in this novel. She delivers a final in the trilogy that leaves you full of hope for what comes next.

If you have read this far, go grab this book. You need to know how it all ends.

4.5 stars - Excellent storytelling, non-stop action, gripping conclusion.

‘True Storm’ is the third and final 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. Book 2, ‘True North’ provides both the main character and the readers with more information but also more unanswered questions.

At the beginning of ‘True Storm,’ twins Lucy and Margot are s

True Storm is the final instalment in the True Born trilogy. It has been a year since I read book 2, True North so I was grateful the author gave us a little bit of a reminder as to what has happened so far.

Lucy's life takes many twists and turns in True Storm and there are some events that didn't surprise me, some that did and one that I found a little uncomfortable even though it made sense to the story. Along with the ac

Laster. Splicer. True Born.

Lucinda Fox is back for this final installment of the True Born Trilogy and it all ends here. With Margot rescued from the far reaches of Russia and back, lock and key, things should all be resolved neatly. Wrong.

While she was away I spent a lot of time worrying over this. The bond I have relied upon my whole life to tell me what Margot was thinking and feeling had stretched, thin and silent, until it was all but obliterated. It was the loneliest feeling in the world.

Awesome read. Well written with a great plot and characters. I was engrossed from start to finish. Twins Lucy and Margot are safe and together in Dominion City, coping with the aftermath of Margot’s time held captive in Russia and reeling from all of the betrayal. Margot’s experiences have clearly changed her, but Lucy is happy to have her twin back and is hopeful that their close bond will heal over time.
The twins have recently learned that almost everyone in their lives has kept secrets from

This one did not take long at all to race through since it is explosive to the edge the finish of this. Lucy is still larger than life with carrying you through this one. This might be a teen book but it could go toe to toe with many adult when it comes to capturing your attention and wrangling your emotions. The characters in this will give it its mix needed to carry of the finale. Lucy will torture you with her on edge actions. After the many twists and turns you will come out of this one with ...more

. . . I just expected more from this ending.
Okay, it’s so incredibly hard to write a review of the final book in a trilogy without all kinds of spoilers, so this is by necessity going to be short and sweet. If you’ve read my first two reviews ( True Born , True North ) or seen me shouting about this book on Twitter, you know just how much I LOVE this series. So reading this final book is definitely bittersweet for me -- it’s much like how I felt reading the final book in Sara Wolf’s Lovely Vicious series (also from Entangled Teen). I ...more

What a way to end a trilogy! The True Born series has been one of my favourites since the first book was released in 2016. It's so unique and unlike anything else that I've read before. I'm sad to see it end...but boy did it go out on a high! I really enjoyed it from start to finish and it absolutely did not let me down.

The story takes place in an apocalyptic world where most of the earth’s population has been killed off by a plague. Those left have fractured into three groups: the Lasters, the

I have been anticipating and dreading the conclusion of this series since the beginning. I have loved the Fox sisters and the True Borns since the beginning.

first of all can we talk about the extremely beautiful font? it struck me immediately that the font is incredibly fancy and a lot more cozy to read than in the first two books. A++ for that. I’ve been a bit ticked off by this book a bit. maybe so because it is thorny with cliché ya tropes. for example: page 20 (We sway. our bodies just touching. I can feel the pull between us, a current as sure as electricity. And just as able to shock me.) there’s the good old bickering of alpha dudes we well k ...more

True Storm by L.E. Sterling is the conclusion to the True Born Trilogy. It follows the ending from True North wherein Margot was rescued by Lucy and Jared.

I can say that this is a really great book. It’s catchy and even more hooking than the second book. L.E. Sterling did a great job writing it. It was easier to read, and the content is great as well

TRUE STORM is the final book in the True Born Series. With Margot back home with Lucy, Nolan Storm believes they should go back and finish school because it's important to graduate. As their guardian, they have to do as he says. It's hard to return to mundane life of school when both of them are so different now after what they've been through. The Watchers are still out there somewhere, so they'll have to watch their back.

Lucy also faces three men who seek her hand. Alastair, Storm, and Jared.

So this was one of the best conclusions to a trilogy that I've read in a while. It was jam-packed full of suspense, action, twists, and turns. It was hard to put down, making it easy to read quickly, but it wasn't one you could just jump in and out of. There was so much going on and so many pieces of the puzzle being filled in, that you needed to be able to sit and read for more than a few minutes at a time. I say all of that not in a bad way, but in a good way, because this was a 5 star read fo ...more

What a conclusion to this trilogy! Everything was answered and addressed, and so not in the manner that I thought it would.

I enjoyed this book and the story the trilogy created. This book certainly was full of action and emotion. I loved seeing how everything came together even though I was distraught by certain scenes bc that is not what I wanted to occur! Even then, while upset over the action I was ensnared by the beauty of the emotion and skill that LES created. Along with being captivated b

I'll be honest, I've been putting off sharing my thoughts on True Storm for so long that I can't even remember why I disliked it as much as I did, but let's just say that three stars is a very generous rating and I'm surprised I even decided to give it that many.
This was the only book in the True Born trilogy that I struggled to get through. The first two were absolute delights and I flew through both of them, but from the awkward beginning - we're thrown in to a completely different scenario t

I was super excited to read the third book in the True Born series, and with a few exceptions, I had a great time reading the continuing story of Lucinda Fox and her twin Margot in a dystopian society (Dominion) where the twin girls were the 'princesses' of their time. True Borns versus Splicers versus Watchers versus Lasters - with so many groups and stakeholders, it gets a bit tough to remember who's who and which group desires what. I really like Lucy's character with her internal struggles, ...more

The final chapter to the true born series finished with an amazing ending. The final novel followed heartbreak, loss, betrayal and new meaning for the characters.

Reunited with the families merc when all hell breaks loose. Betrayal and heartache, unthinkable choices and decisions.

When Margot and Lucinda find that no one is worth trusting other than themselves and the true borns, secrets are unfolding when captured once again.

Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled for the opportunity to read and review True Storm by L.E. Sterling!
The background and past events of the story are summed up concisely and brought me back up to speed as the book opened with Lucy’s point of view. The trauma continues and Lucy discovers secrets about Margot that shock her to the core. The danger and intrigue intensify as the whirlwind of events knock down societal standings and tear apart the lives of Luc

Last of three-Spoiler!

Well this was my least favorite of the three books. Maybe because I wanted her to have the chance to confront her horrible father! And they never mention her mother at all. But what I find in some endings was true in this one- it was time to end it so they had a colossal fight and voila, it’s over.
