Title: The Lost Sisters (The Folk of the Air #1.5)
Author: Holly Black
Reading Date: October 13, 2018
Book Summary: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.
Book Review: If this was meant to be some sort of apology letter from Taryn to Jude, it was more of a half-ass attempt and it seemed to be void of any sort of remorse.
On top of all that, she uses writing instead of just going to her sister to explain her reasoning and motivates to her face. This is cowardly and this may do little to remove the damage that may have been done to the relationship between the two.
This letter garned little sympathy from me. I think Taryn deserves her sister's scorn and even more I believe Jude should really wash her hands of her all together. I feel Taryn doesn't really care. I understand that she wants the two of them to be accepted in the fae realm and to be given the chance to live "happily ever after" but the way Taryn is doing it is really going to end up biting her in the ass in the long wrong. She is playing a game of fire and she will get burned especially the way she is stepping over people to get where she wants.
If anything, I am starting to dislike Taryn and feeling sorry for Jude. At least Jude is fighting against it all and trying to set her own course in this world they have been taken to.
Although this was a tiny story, it sets up for the next book in the series and I can only surmise it is a bit of a bridge or something along the lines. This was just too short for me but was a nice read in the end. It helps to understand Taryn just a bit and her motives but it doesn't make me like her in the end.
If you are a fan of this series, then this will be a great read for you to tie you over for the next book. :D
