Post-Apocalyptic Setting

TRUE BORN follows Lucy and her twin Margot as they deal with the drama and politics of a post-apocalyptic world. Lucy and Margot are twins and live in a society where a plague is threatening to wipe out the human civilization. The only ones immune to it are the True Borns. True Borns are evolved and they usually possess a certain talent. The most common one we see is shapeshifting into an animal or being born with animal characteristics, like fur.

The twins' father thinks poorly of True Borns, so it's only natural that Margot and Lucy would too. But when True Borns are hired to protect Lucy and Margot, Lucy finds herself oddly attracted to Jared. He's infuriating and aggressive, but she can't stop feeling attracted towards him. A lot of secrets are being kept from the twins and Jared and his leader, Storm, may be the ones with all of the answers.

TRUE BORN is a political whirlwind that has an X-Men feel to it. Lucy and Margot were interesting characters. The feelings developing between Jared and Lucy are so hot and cold that I hope to see a lot more hot in the second one.


Final Verdict: This story is perfect for fans of a post-apocalyptic setting, politics, drama, and evolutionary stories like X-Men.
