The Lost Sisters

- Holly Black

Goodreads Book Blurb:

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.

My Review:

not my cup of tea:

Let’s start with a love story.
Or maybe it’s another horror story. It seems like the difference is mostly in where the ending comes.

I guess I was hoping for an explanation from Taryn that wouldn’t make her a terrible person. Cardan perfectly expressed my feelings toward Taryn reasonably early on in this story:

"You're awful." He said it as though he was delighted. "And the worst part is that you believe otherwise."

After everything that Taryn and Jude have been through together, to sacrifice your twin for Locke is so dumb.

There’s no new information revealed here. I liked the fairy story at the beginning – that was interesting, but the rest of it was evident from reading The Cruel Prince. I know it’s only 50 pages long, but The Lost Sisters was highly unnecessary.
