True Born #Review

True Born (True Born Trilogy #1)

Review:  ♥ ♥

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 up snobby toffees. They teach their children to believe their views and do not associate with lesser species.

Lucy and Margot Fox are congenital twins. They were separated shortly after birth. Twins have a special bond but these two have something more. It's like they are still joined. At 18 children become adults. They have a reveal party to expose their fate. The plague onset is mapped out in people's DNA.

Trueborn is Lucy's story. She is privileged and part of the upper circle. Her father is a powerful man and Lucy is expected to act the part. She's the responsible twin. She tries to keep her sister in line and plays the part of the sensible one. Her life is about to be turned upside down. She has never questioned her privileged life but her eyes are about to be opened.

A new security team is set on to protect the twins. The words True Born are about to mean something.

This book has some horror scenes which some readers may not like (The event is written at the bottom of this review). Monsters are mutated from humans. Some are good, some are bad. This book is a new way to think of shifters. Trueborn is about survival. The world is changing. The poor are starting an uprising. This is Lucy's awakening.

This story has the potential for romance.

Trueborn isn't the type of book you can read while falling asleep. The language is a little heavy and takes a bit of concentration.

4.5 stars out of 5. A good start to a trilogy. This book is wrapped in mystery and will leave you with questions. Luckily book 3 is out in May 2018.

*I received an ARC as part of the launch of book 3. My review is honest and fair.

***Mild spoiler alert Lucy's twin, Margot has her eggs stolen. ***
