Now what can I say without giving away spoilers? I must say that this installment had A LOT going on. This was over 400 pages of twists and turns. Where the story started was completely different to where it ended. But this is not a bad thing. Instead of getting lulled into what I expected to happen in the story, I found myself wrapped up in this world and the lives of Eila, Raef, and the gang, discovering things right alongside them. I was often surprised by the direction of the story, which kept me on my toes trying to foresee what would happen next. In fact, there was one occurrence that truly shocked me and I absolutely did not see it coming. Actually, I'm still shocked. And that ending! I'm looking forward to what I expect will be many more fascinating twists and turns in the next book.
First, let me start out by saying that True North is officially the first new book (besides a school required one that I am not counting) that I have read in 2016! I know it's shocking that I haven't read any new books in over a month, but that's what happens when you are a high school student with truck loads of work every day and very bad at time management. However though, I am happy to say that I couldn't have been more happier than to start 2016 with True North! Just when I think that this series can't possibly get even better than it already is, I am given another book that totally blows that thought out of the water!
Let me warn you that unlike the first two books in this series, this one will definitely put you through the wringer and leave you an emotional sobbing, smiling, and laughing mess. It seems that with every book, the secrets, twists, and new surprises get even bigger than before. Everything is much more intense and trust me when I say that you will not be able to put this book down for even a second!
As usual, I don't have enough words to describe how much I have come to love these characters! I am not going to repeat myself and tell you all how much I love Eila, Rafe, Kian, Ana, and MJ. I already did that twice in my reviews for Undertow & Stormfront. However, what I will tell you is that my heart broke for Eila in this book. And also, if you didn't already love these characters before (are you nuts?), you can expect that after reading this book, you will become their #1 fan! The ones that I will be talking about though, are the semi-new characters that we got to know better.
Let me start out with Christian & Rillan. In the last two books, I had my doubts about them. I didn't think they were necessarily bad, but it was still hard for me to completely trust them. But after getting to know them more in detail in this book, all I can say is that my heart breaks for these two characters. They have been through so much and yet managed to survive. And they are doing all they can to help Eila, no matter what the cost. They have definitely grown on me and I have really become fond of these two! Also, I'd really like to just reach into the book and give Rillan a nice big hug because he really deserves it.
Another character, one that totally took me by surprise, was Nicki Shea. I was prepared to to hate her. However, what I wasn't prepared for was to start feeling sympathetic towards her, and actually starting to like her. I know. Shocking right? But what happened was that from the minute she came into the picture, I found it hard to actually hate her. Even though she acts super mean, it was easy to see that it wasn't the real her. And after everything she has done in this book, I can for sure say that Nicki is now one of my favorite characters and for me, she is officially a part of Eila's crew!
As for the writing itself, storyline, plot, and pacing, they were nothing but perfect! Surprisingly, despite being over 400 pages, True North was a fast read for me, but I guess that's what happens when you get a book as good as this one! The only bad thing about this book is that because it was so good, waiting until NEXT YEAR for the next book is going to be nothing but pure torture! I guess the only good thing though was that Ms. Conway took mercy on us and did not end this book on a terrible cliffhanger. Overall True North was beyond awesome and you definitely need to run and grab this book from the store as fast as possibly possible!
"He wanted me, only me, with silly freckles, imperfect curves, and weird glow stick ability. He wanted me, forever, and in that moment, as his hands began to carefully slide down my body, I knew I wanted him forever as well."
I fell in love with all of the characters and I promise you will drown in the words from the beginning to end. I cannot wait for Last Light in 2017!

Eila and her crew of Mortis/ own personal superheros is back and kicking more butt than ever. With Raef, Kian, MJ, and Ana back by her side, with a few other loyalist added into the mix, they are ready to take their fight to where it could all end or begin - given the weapons that could be created and used against her and her misfit friends. I really enjoyed leaning more about Eila's heritage and being shown the risks and rewards that she feels are necessary to restore her once great race to it's former glory. With some bumps along her long road to self-discovery, Eila has her ever-present love Raef to help her navigate the twists and turns that are thrown her way. If you are looking for just another sc-fi story, this might not be for you - this story has so much more! It has intrigue, betrayal, romance, strange alien races (with strange powers to shock and awe), friendship, and loyalty. I will be eagerly awaiting the next and final chapter in Eila's journey!!
