What I enjoyed most about True North was reading about different species and how they interact with each other. The main characters in this novella are Mages and Humans. Mages have magical powers and naturally live infinitely (although they can be killed) and have a history of war and conflict with Humans. However, on the Complex, they have to try and co-exist peacefully. While one of the main characters, Lake, is fine with Humans, her son Aldous holds a lot of prejudiced views against Humans and doesn’t want anything to do with them. But over the course of this short novella, readers get to see him become more accepting of Humans and learn that they aren’t all brutal, ruthless people like those that killed his father. Although I wish we had gotten to see this a bit more in-depth, I understand that for a novella, that’s hard to do and I’m pleased with how readers are able to see Aldous learn to accept and even like Humans. I really enjoyed seeing these two groups of people overcome their differences and learn to accept one another.
There are two romantic relationships we get to see in True North and I really enjoyed both of them. I don’t want to say too much because I want to avoid spoiling anything, but both romances are intriguing and often heart-warming. There are a few pretty explicit sex scenes, which generally I was okay with but one of them was kind of awkward to read. To be fair, though, I really usually only read YA and so I’m not really used to reading explicit sex scenes which may explain why I felt it was awkward. Regardless, I was rooting for both couples because they certainly face their fair share of obstacles.
In the end, I ended up liking True North just about as much as I expected to. It didn’t blow my mind away, but it didn’t disappoint either. Elizabeth Burgess was able to make me feel connected to the characters in only about 100 pages which is pretty impressive if you ask me. I definitely want to look into some of the other books in the series because the world is really intriguing and I’d like to read more about it. If you’re interested in reading sci-fi and looking for a quick read, True North is a great option.
I volunteered to receive a copy to honestly review.
