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 under pressure to choose her future: does it lie with her handsome new friend, Alastair; her guardian, the enigmatic True Born leader Nolan Storm; or the man who makes her heart trip, her savage True Born bodyguard Jared Price?
But while Lucy ponders her path, fate has other plans. 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 is the DNA of her will stronger than the forces opposing her? Can she turn the tide against the oncoming storm??
As they say in Dominion, can rogue genes ever have a happy ending?
The final book in the TRUE BORN trilogy has finally arrived. I discovered this series and fell in love with Jared Price over two years ago. Since then, I’ve recommended the series to people, who haven’t been disappointed.
I went into this book expecting a lot. Maybe I expected too much. Because I liked the book, but it didn’t wow me. I wanted a little bit more. Some of what took place in this book confused me, and while it did tie up the story, not all of it made sense. I liked the book, don’t get me wrong; I wanted to love it – but didn’t. It satisfied my need for the end of the book, but I wasn’t itching to pick it up every second I had free. Either way, when I did pick it up, I read it quickly.
There were some things I loved, like Lucy. Lucy is impossible not to love, and even though she wasn’t at her best in this book, it only made her better. Also, I still adored Jared. He loved Lu with a fierce intensity that was admirable, and I wanted them to have their happily ever after. It impossible not to root for them, and I wanted more scenes with them together. I love a good love story, and they sure had an interesting one.
The thing I didn’t love: I still have so many questions. Supposedly, this is the end of the series. However, I feel like there is still so much left unsaid. The ending was drawn out in some parts and too fast in others. I can’t explain this too much without giving away spoilers, but this book was different than the others in the series. I got an ending that I liked, but I wanted something a little more.
Overall, I liked the book. It was a good ending to the series, though not a great one. Still, Sterling created a unique world that kept things interesting. If you enjoy science fiction, heavy on the fiction, then you should check out these books. Maybe you’ll hope for more in the series along with me.
