5 stars: "Wow wow wow this book wow. I don't know ifenough words exist for me to write this review. I was immediately drawn in bythe cover and the name, as well as the word trilogy. Let's behonest, I love a good book series, and this one is going to be incredible." -Megan, Goodreads Reviewer

4.5 stars: "Confession: Ilove X-Men and the idea of people developing different kinds of powers, be theypsychic or shapeshifting or elemental control. This is exactly what I gotin True Born, and itwas so cool.  Therewas a lot of action and excitement in this story, as well as some downrightdisturbing stuff happening. The post-apocalyptic world was written really welland was the perfect setting for everything that was going down. [...] Theother thing I love? Guys with confidence and attitude that can kick ass. Jaredis exactly that. The sexual tension between him and Lucywas OFF. THE. CHARTS. " -Dani, Dani Reviews Things

5stars: "Thisis definitely not just another YA dystopian novel! Absolutelyloved this fast moving and engaging story. Fans of Shatter Meby Tahereh Mafi will also be fans of this new series. Can't wait to see whathappens next!  Definitely recommend." -Kristen, Goodreads Reviewer

4 stars: "Fansof Laini Taylor's Daughterof Smoke and Bone trilogyor X-Men will devour this book.  Is it too soon to beasking for the next book in the trilogy yet?" -Moriah, A Leisure Moment

5stars: "I loved Jared. Blonde, snarky, transitioning eye color, andan inherent desire to protect Lucy, it was practically impossible not to createa special place in my heart for this True Born. While they didn't have an incredibly romantic relationship,each kiss and careful caress made my heart race. The fact that her keptreferring to Lucy as Princess made me fall for I'm even more. His snarkyremarks were just well enough to showed that he cared, but not too much." -Carly,The Darlings Diary

4stars: "With descriptive writing, a strong minded heroine, and anelement of mystery that keeps on giving, this book makes for one interestingand addictive read. The world building is great, Icould see what was going on in my head and was able to understand our heroineLucy's perspective." -Book Mafia Blog

4.5stars: "True Born isan exciting and captivating beginning to this new trilogy. Amix of dystopian fiction with fantasy and mystery added in, Sterling has takenthe plague story and given it an entirely new twist. She also brings in many ofthe social issues we're dealing with in the here and now. I'mlooking forward to the next book." -Kim, By Hook or By Book
