True North by K.R. Conway
February 8, 2016
Genre: Mature YA/New Adult Paranormal
Contains: some language, sexual references (fade-to-black)
When her grandfather reveals that he has kept a priceless piece of the past hidden in his vault on the island of Polaris, Eila and her friends are hopeful they may finally find the answers they so desperately need.
But just when Polaris is beginning to feel like a safe haven, a brutal attack leaves the group shattered. Eila, desperate to end the violence, soon finds herself drawn into the decadent underworld of the Mortis, where lies become truths, and allies . . . become killers.
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.
