The Lost Sisters Reviews

  • Candace Robinson

    This was a pretty good read to get into Taryn's head about things. However, I still don't like her. But I mean, you don't really have to to like the book.

    I also was not a fan of the second person POV—it's always an odd feeling. Like as soon as the word "you" is used, I look down at myself, and point to my chest like "who, me?" 

    But I will say I seriously love Holly's writing, and this was a great novella to get a little more of the world in between the books, along with a different character's PO

    I'm so desperate for The Wicked King and my silly little self was like "oohhh this will be a nice thing while we wait!" Actually it's TORTURE. And it also gives you a peek of TWK so like...no, no, it's fine, I wanted to be impaled by an ebook because of my intense need to know what happens next. 😭

    I still don't like Taryn, but I liked getting to see her perspective. She is so desperately in need of being wanted, and I find that so sad that she can't get it from anywhere else but the cruelly mani

    Taryn dear, from the bottom of my heart, I wish you the absolute worst, you spineless little worm. You’re selfish, whiny, weak and desperately need to grow a backbone. I hope Jude cuts you in half.

    So yeah, Taryn’s a bitch. I guess we all knew that but I’m surprised how she actually made me hate her even more in this novella than I already did. I could feel my resentment towards her growing with every page I turned. This was quite interesting to read even though it didn’t really provide any new i

    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.


    Ah, I only wish this was longer!

    The Lost Sisters is a tiny story and even tinier than it first appears because the last ten or so pages is an extract from The Wicked King. It's an apology - of sorts - from Taryn to Jude. I love that Black chose to have Taryn directly address Jude as she explains her actions and motivations. It made it a more emotional read. And, he ...more

    Taryn can throw herself and her so-called "apology" off a cliff.

    edit 10/7: i didn't like this :)

    it could be that it's been too much time since i've read the cruel prince but i didn't really feel that this novella was necessary. i know i shouldn't assume anything about holly black's characters but i could have guessed that taryn was a dumb ass, naive, loved up, fool.

    i think i would have preferred this more if she hadn't had any remorse for her actions. her weeping and "but i was in love" justification to all of her actions was just... not interesting to me.
