Waiting on Wednesday: True Born

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a fun way to see what books other bloggers just can't wait to get their hands on!


True Born #1
L.E. Sterling
Young Adult/Dystopian
Available May 2016 from Entangled Teen

From Goodreads:

Welcome to Dominion City.

After the great Plague descended, the world population was decimated...and their genetics damaged beyond repair.

The Lasters wait hopelessly for their genes to self-destruct. The Splicers pay for expensive treatments that might prolong their life. The plague-resistant True Borns are as mysterious as they are feared…

And then there's Lucy Fox and her identical twin sister, Margot. After endless tests, no one wants to reveal what they are.

When Margot disappears, a desperate Lucy has no choice but to put her faith in the True Borns, led by the charismatic Nolan Storm and the beautiful but deadly Jared Price. As Lucy and the True Borns set out to rescue her sister, they stumble upon a vast conspiracy stretching from Dominion’s street preachers to shady Russian tycoons. But why target the Fox sisters?

As they say in Dominion, it’s in the blood.

WHAT ARE THEY YOU GUYS?! I have to know what Lucy and her twin sister are and how they fit into this plague-infested, genetically-damaged world. I'm mildly concerned about the possibility of a love triangle given the mention of both Nolan and Jared, but I'm hoping it's going to work out to where we maybe get two romances–one for each sister–instead of one drama-fueled triangle. *fingers crossed*

  1. THIS BOOK LOOKS SO COOL. I totally agree with you about the love triangle aspect, though. Two romances would be much better than a messy fight for only one of the sisters.

  2. I really like this cover, Jenny and the story sounds good too. I'm with you on the romance! Fingers crossed it's a boy for each girl. That would make for a great read I think! :)
    Lovely pick, Jenny!

  3. Once I read the name of the two guys my brain jumped to "love triangle" and I would not be too keen on that, but I'm hoping that your idea will be the one!

    And it sounds like a very interesting dystopian to keep in mind! Thank you for putting it on my radar!

  8. I haven't had a great run with dystopians, Jenny, so I really hope this one will break my rut! I wonder if they're mutants. I'm curious about the antlers too. I really hope there is no love triangle or square for that matter.
