Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to KR Conway Wicked Whale Publishing and NetGalley “Nothing can happen to you do you understand? I can’t live without you” This was a good third instalment and the stakes were really raisedEila had a lot to deal with in this book and she just about made it although she did have her moments Raef again seemed overprotective thoughThe storyline in this did confuse me a bit and I think I really need to go back and reread books 1 and 2 again but there was action and an unexpected death to keep things flowing The ending was a bit of a cliff hanger again I will be re reading these before that fourth one comes out7 out of 10 A HUGE thank you to MS Conway for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review D First let me start out by saying that True North is officially the first new book besides a school reuired one that I am not counting that I have read in 2016 I know it's shocking that I haven't read any new books in over a month but that's what happens when you are a high school student with truck loads of work every day and very bad at time management However though I am happy to say that I couldn't have been happier than to start 2016 with True North Just when I think that this series can't possibly get even better than it already is I am given another book that totally blows that thought out of the water Let me warn you that unlike the first two books in this series this one will definitely put you through the wringer and leave you an emotional sobbing smiling and laughing mess It seems that with every book the secrets twists and new surprises get even bigger than before Everything is much intense and trust me when I say that you will not be able to put this book down for even a second As usual I don't have enough words to describe how much I have come to love these characters I am not going to repeat myself and tell you all how much I love Eila Rafe Kian Ana and MJ I already did that twice in my reviews for Undertow Stormfront However what I will tell you is that my heart broke for Eila in this book And also if you didn't already love these characters before are you nuts? you can expect that after reading this book you will become their #1 fan The ones that I will be talking about though are the semi new characters that we got to know better Let me start out with Christian Rillan In the last two books I had my doubts about them I didn't think they were necessarily bad but it was still hard for me to completely trust them But after getting to know them in detail in this book all I can say is that my heart breaks for these two characters They have been through so much and yet managed to survive And they are doing all they can to help Eila no matter what the cost They have definitely grown on me and I have really become fond of these two Also I'd really like to just reach into the book and give Rillan a nice big hug because he really deserves itAnother character one that totally took me by surprise was Nicki Shea I was prepared to to hate her However what I wasn't prepared for was to start feeling sympathetic towards her and actually starting to like her I know Shocking right? But what happened was that from the minute she came into the picture I found it hard to actually hate her Even though she acts super mean it was easy to see that it wasn't the real her And after everything she has done in this book I can for sure say that Nicki is now one of my favorite characters and for me she is officially a part of Eila's crewAs for the writing itself storyline plot and pacing they were nothing but perfect Surprisingly despite being over 400 pages True North was a fast read for me but I guess that's what happens when you get a book as good as this one The only bad thing about this book is that because it was so good waiting until NEXT YEAR for the next book is going to be nothing but pure torture I guess the only good thing though was that Ms Conway took mercy on us and did not end this book on a terrible cliffhanger Overall True North was beyond awesome and you definitely need to run and grab this book from the store as fast as possibly possible UpdateFull review I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest reviewMay contain information from previous bookSo book two left us off with Eila and her friends at grandfather's island containing Elizabeth's body From there we get tons of action suspense and everything in between All that I could do was carry on my chipped and battered heart still beating There was uite a bit of heartbreak in this book that really took me by surprised I always hold out and hope that all characters will make it to the end but that was not the case in this book and I was so sad to see some characters go I'm really really going to miss them She looked downright giddy about our forbidden field trip and I was starting to wonder what exactly was in those meds the hospital gave her But there are still a few things I've been able to count on in this series and the first is humor which I'm so glad there was because too many depressing things is just no fun I love laughing and these characters can be funny Especially MJI can also count on Eila and Raef I love them so much and I was happy to be able to read about them again Of course Raef gets overprotective but Eila and Ana always end up asserting themselves I think by now it's a given that Raef and Kian will always what to protect those that they love especially now that none of them ever seem to get a breakAlso I love you MJ Keep being youWe get some new characters in the book as well as not so friendly ones Ms Conway even made me like someone I previously didn't like and that I always think that that is an accomplishment for an author to do congratsI also went in thinking this was the last book so glad it's not and the whole time I was thinking There's no way this story is going to be wrapped up in this book No Absolute Way I guess I was right While the story has become a lot intense and complex with the Lessers and limiting links I now I have even uestions for book four and I just want everyone to have their HEAAll in all this was a fun book that was heartbreaking funny swoon intense and left me wanting the next book which doesn't come out till next year I love the story line and I can't wait to see where the next book will take usReview before reading  I'm so excited for this book  I fell in love with the Undertow series just a few weeks ago Since then I've inhaled the books and True North is the third book of the series and let me tell you KR Conway had me yelling saying nope and omg so many times my sanity was uestioned The book picks up again at the beautiful island of Polaris Will Eila Raef Ana Kian MJ and Christian finally have some good luck? And will Mae go bananas when she finds out the boys are on Polaris?

That is the uestion all would like to knowWe learn that there is a group of people out there who work with Mortis to help them Christian is one of the sad ones I loved how much he loved Ella and all he did for her Ana grows in her powers and her relationship with Kian becomes More complex in depth and loving They are there for each other in a different way than Ella and Raef The history they have has Kian protective than ever She helps discover secrets and reveal why all that is going on with Links Lessers and coming after Ella is happeningRillin shows that he is loyal and at the end you really have your heart go out to him I was glad he was finally freedthis book I couldn’t put down So much was seen and happened We learned about links lessers about the world of Mortis and Lunaterra We see love interests peak and allies come in the most unlikely of sources Ella gets stronger and the support love and respect she receives from Raef helps her feel confident and grow into who she is Rillin helps her become stronger and confident in her abilities but he also gets freed and has her trust and faith no matter whatRaef becomes loving and protective but also we see his Mortis side of darkness He respects Ella’s choices and stands by them even when they go against what he is feeling His growth comes in the fact that he starts to come to peace with his mortis side and sees that his human side is still there We see him show faith in ella’s abilities and his love grow for herMJ is still my favorite He is kind and fun He helps to lighten the situations and take the tension from them and yet he is fierce and loyal in his own wayThis group goes through alot in this book as they battle danger on all sides and try to figure out what is going on and why everyone is after EllaA well written fast paced action packed book full of danger intrigue sad moments loving moments trust and coming together of people to stop something that could harm all A book of love and trust Family and loyalty Danger and intrigue I look forward to seeing where the next book takes us and if the hypothesis about Rillin is true or not And the cliffy about who Raef and Kian are descendants of as Mortis wow just wow And what is wanted to happen by others is just to alluring to hear about and see defeated A truly alluring book Had to think about this review for a couple of days When you read someone as good as Kate is it's hard to keep coming up with superlatives to describe her work This is the fourth book in her Undertow series and in my humble opinion the best yet She keeps growing in her writing with each book the characters become real and the story while a supernatural story is totally believable Ella Raef MJ Kian Ana and Marsh feel like the teens next door even if they do have abilities I love these kids and you can almost imagine Kate gave birth to all of them Guess in a way she did and she has raised them right Read the book read ALL the books Step into a world where imagination reigns and other worlds do exist Just run out buy them start at the beginning and don't stop until the last mind bending page Gah I missed this group of young adults I had forgotten how much I genuinely adored these books I love when I break out of my normal reading and grab a young adult book They are always so refreshing Add in the paranormal and I got a complete palate cleanse The gang is all here with some new interesting additions Witty humor heart break and amazing power I can not wait to see where the series ends Such a strong eclectic group of characters They all work “Dollar Store Avengers” They are ready to fight they are ready to make a stand The future is in there hands History rest in the balance For full review please go to 5girlsbookreviewsblogspotcom Twitter camartinez and Facebook 5 Girls Book ReviewsREVIEW BY Michaela age 11 years 7 monthsMAY CONTAIN SPOILERI have read the other two books in this series and I must say that this one did not disappoint me either I LOVED it This book was so amazing My favorite character is Ellie because she is generous and cares about everyone My favorite part is when they meet Basil because it is so funny but he stays so calm like their meeting happens any regular day
