Rated 4 out of 5 by from Intense follow-up to Second Nature (3.5 stars) True Nature works as a standalone book but even better if read right after Second Nature. The story makes more sense I think if you’re already familiar with the Wrasa and its politics and some of the characters from Second Nature; with that knowledge under your belt you can zero in on the new characters here and the storyline as it progresses thru intense dramatic moments, some lighter funnier moments and action/suspense that may have you on the edge of your reading chair in anticipation of what will happen next, how things will resolve and in whose favor. You may even find yourself choked up in some scenes thanks to author Jae’s masterful way of creating characters you care about and believe in and putting them into complicated and wholly human situations regardless of whether the characters in question are Wrasa (shape-shifters) or human. As in Second Nature, there are issues of politics and prejudice in the human and Wrasa realms that seem timeless and even timely in current day America and elsewhere in the real world. I did find this story more drawn out than it needed to be in terms of the drama; it did have me more invested in the relevant characters’ turmoil and conflicts but felt as if it could have been resolved sooner and focus placed on other plot threads before the story concluded. Still I recommend this book for its effective escapism and the paranormal race, the Wrasa, a well thought out group who are fascinating to read about here with the focus on other aspects of their race not covered in Second Nature. The two books make a great pair to read together and complementary short story Manhattan Moon in the same shape-shifters series of stories by Jae are all recommended reading for the fun and thrills the stories provide in this universe of stories. I have not read the other short stories in the series so cannot comment on them directly but I suspect them to be of the same high quality writing and storytelling as these and the rest of Jae’s works. I look forward to reading more by Jae in the future, no matter the genre she is writing in. Her skill is not limited to one genre by any means and her imagination appears to have no limits either; I hope she writes and publishes more stories soon and for years to come.
