I began the Aurora Sky series a month before the release of True North. My excitement around the series, plot twists and character development pumped me full of excitement as I patiently waited the climatic series finale. Unfortunately, the ending came without the climax I'd hoped.
True North, was very similar in pace to Whiteout, which was not my favorite in the series. There are several key players and when you read a book that alleviates those players, then you are left with a missing piece of the puzzle. The first few chapters in the book moved at a snails pace, and it took me about a week to get up to chapter 10. I forged ahead because of the expectations of ending the agency and the heroes winning. I won't spoil the book, but it definitely left me hanging.
As often as Fane and Aurora were missing in Whiteout, I felt the same situations occur in True North. Seventy-five percent of the book was a story-line that I really didn't care about. Aurora became more lackluster and dry, while others took on more of a focal point. She at times also became whiny and not the strong person we saw her as in the other novels.
Because I cannot give any spoilers, I will say the book ended and again it wasn't what I expected, but there is satisfaction in knowing that the good guys win. It's just how they won left me annoyed.
