After the great Plague descended, the world population was decimated…and their genetics damaged beyond repair.
The Lasters wait hopelessly for their genes to self-destruct. The Splicers pay for expensive treatments that might prolong their life. The plague-resistant True Borns are as mysterious as they are feared…
And then there’s Lucy Fox and her identical twin sister, Margot. After endless tests, no one wants to reveal what they are.
When Margot disappears, a desperate Lucy has no choice but to put her faith in the True Borns, led by the charismatic Nolan Storm and the beautiful but deadly Jared Price. As Lucy and the True Borns set out to rescue her sister, they stumble upon a vast conspiracy stretching from Dominion’s street preachers to shady Russian tycoons. But why target the Fox sisters?
As they say in Dominion, it’s in the blood.

2 ½ ★
This was one of those books that I really wanted to love because it sounded different and great. In the end I wasn’t really sure if I like it or not.
I liked the idea of the book and thought it would have been really great but just needed a bit more polishing up .
I thought it was missing some world building because there is not much , we sorta just get thrown in and that’s it. Not much background or other explaining and it just felt a bit dull.
Another turn off for me was the insta lust , really she saw him and pretty much lost other brain from that moment on , I should call it insta stupid instead of insta lust , because that is really what happened .
And overall she was not the smartest person and always found the most iodic things to do and get herself and others in danger.
And Jared Price, umm yeah I think he was supposed to be one of those “bad boy” alpha male but really just came over as an A&&hole and not in a good way. I rolled my eyes way to many times and other times I was just angry at him. He stalkerish and controlling and that relationship was not healthy at all in my eyes.

I will continue on to see if it gets better and I really hope it does, because I think the story has a lot of potential.
Overall, I rate this book 2 ½ ★
