COVER REVEAL: 'True North' by L.E. Sterling

I read 'True Born' back in April, and I loved it. I'd fallen out of love with the idea of dystopians, because they all seem to regurgitate the same plot, making them predictable and bland, but 'True Born' revitalised my love for the genre. As soon as I finished it, I was adding the sequel to my Want To Read list, desperate to continue on with Lucy and Margot's story.

So when an email popped into my inbox last night asking me if I'd like to be involved in the cover reveal for the second novel in the series, 'True North', I jumped at the chance. I seriously don't think I've ever responded to an email that quickly!

Keep scrolling down to see the cover, and then look below for a synopsis of what is going to happy to the Fox twins next...

Abandoned by her family in Plague-ridden Dominion City, eighteen-year-old Lucy Fox has no choice but to rely upon the kindness of the True Borns, a renegade group of genetically enhanced humans, to save her twin sister, Margot. But Nolan Storm, their mysterious leader, has his own agenda. When Storm backtracks on his promise to rescue Margot, Lucy takes her fate into her own hands and sets off for Russia with her True Born bodyguard and maybe-something-more, the lethal yet beautiful Jared Price. In Russia, there's been whispered rumors of Plague Cure.
While Lucy fights her magnetic attraction to Jared, anxious that his loyalty to Storm will hurt her chances of finding her sister, they quickly discover that not all is as it appears... and discovering the secrets contained in the Fox sisters' blood before they wind up dead is just the beginning. 
As they say in Dominion, sometimes it's not you... it's your DNA.  
I can't put into words how much I love this cover. I'm ecstatic that it matches the cover for the first book, because so many series have been getting redesigned halfway through and that's a huge pet peeve of mine. 
The thing that really grabs me is that byline. "It's not you... it's your DNA." Having studied psychology, I've always been fascinated by reductionist theories that you can't change who you are at a fundamental level, and if that's going to be dealt with in this book I know I'm going to adore it.

'True North' is set to be released on April 4th. If you're like me and you can't wait to continue on with the story, order a copy today!

About the author:

L.E Sterling had an early obsession with sci-fi, fantasy and romance to which she remained faithful even through an M.A. in Creative Writing and a PhD in English Literature - where she completed a thesis on magical representation. She is the author of two previous novels, the cult hit YA novel 'The Originals' (under pen name L.E. Vollick), dubbed "The Catcher in the Rye of a new generation" by one reviewer, and the urban fantasy 'Pluto's Gate'. 

Originally hailing from Parry Sound, Ontario, L.E. spent most of her summers roaming across Canada in a van with her father, a hippie musician, and her brothers and an occasional stray mutt - inspiring her writing career. She currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.
