About The Lost Sisters by Holly Black
Sometimes the difference between a love story and a horror story is where the ending comes . . .
While Jude fought for power in the Court of Elfhame against the cruel Prince Cardan, her sister Taryn began to fall in love with the trickster, Locke.
Half-apology and half-explanation, it turns out that Taryn has some secrets of her own to reveal.
The Lost Sisters is a companion e-novella to the New York Times bestselling novel The Cruel Prince by master writer Holly Black.
The Lost Sisters Review
Okay, this is a REALLY late review, but life has been pretty crazy and this review kind of got buried alive under my giant pile of review drafts. Thankfully, I came across it again (took a while to dig it back up).
As a fan of the series, The Lost Sisters was a pretty sweet treat for me. Even though I like Taryn just as much as everyone else….
(You know how much that is)
I have to say that this book did help me better understand Taryn’s actions better from book one, which arguably helped me to have a better reading experience in book two (and an even better experience re-reading book one). It’s also very interesting to see how (in his own twisted way), Locke actually did care about Taryn. Although I don’t agree (and would personally support anyone having a relationship with a person like Locke), at least now I can kind of understand the mentalities of the characters and the logic behind them.
It’s because of the things shown in this book that I finally realized why Taryn would forgive Locke and how “they love differently from us (humans)”. So that’s a positive thing I’m going to clearly establish in this review – this book is not useless.
Because it’s not useless, I’ll still recommend this book to fans of the series – even though I know there are a LOT of you out there that are like me and just loath Taryn and Locke (especially after book two)…
I still hate them. A lot. They are still horrible people. But I still read it because it helps me to read the series, which I don’t hate. This is why I’m still recommending this to you (who most likely also hates Taryn). Listen I understand, but just trust me. Okay? This book is really not useless.
