True Storm ($24.99, Raincoast Books, Entangled Teen), the final book in Toronto author L.E. Sterling‘s True Born trilogy, was as good as I was hoping it to be.
The book gave me the answers I was seeking and the ending I wanted, somewhat.
In True Storm, we learn more about why those in power are after twins Lucy and Margot as well as who is behind the plot to harm them and why. There is more political intrigue and games – games I don’t understand and wouldn’t want to play. And there is that connection between Lucy and her True Born bodyguard Jared Price, a connection that Lucy, out of duty or expectation, won’t acknowledge or embrace. It still drives me nuts.
Sterling did a great job at providing me enough background information to remember what had happened in books past and also gave me a return of Alastair, although, truthfully, he turned out to be a bit of a jerk, regardless of his reasons.
True Storm was a quick read with more political intrigue and corruption.
A great read and a great conclusion to this trilogy.

If I am buying books, it’s the cover that pulls me in, then I see if it feels right. When I am choosing books, I pick things I think sound interesting or different from what I usually read. Other times, publishers send me books and I read them. I like reading things I usually wouldn’t.

That’s the best Lisa. I tend to read in ruts– although I am reading a lot more non-fiction than I used to. Thankfully I have our lit group that makes me read many books I wouldn’t have on my own. I love all the wide range you have on your log! hugs!
