Publisher's 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 Taryn has some secrets of her own to reveal.

The Lost Sisters is a companion novella-length audiobook to the New York Times best-selling novel The Cruel Prince by master writer Holly Black.

I Still Hate Taryn

I read this after reading an advanced copy of The Wicked King. I still hate Taryn... thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Post Scriptum: the fairytale at the being of the novella is the very best part. “Be bold, be bold... but not too bold”

Loved the narration, excited for the actual sequel

I enjoyed listening to the "other side" of Taryn's betrayal; however, this novella just really got me excited for the sequel The Wicked King. I wanted more after finishing this novella! Holly Black is a phenomenal writer and she really pulls you into her stories!

As for Caitlin Kelly--she is a gem. One of the best narrators we have ever heard.

understanding Taryn

Finally! This book helps me understand why a twin sister would make the decisions she did. In the 1st book The Cruel Prince I dont even know how to explain with out giving it all away. But I often felt like... Taryn are you being mean or are you really just stupid? That's all I can say. If you're intrested in Taryn's thought process as to why she made the decisions she did in book one. enjoy

Great Story!

Taryn is just someone I love to hate. The story gives her depth and makes her more well-rounded. However, it also just confirms how miserable a person Taryn is. She was so easily fooled, ignored every gut instinct, and willingly threw her sister under the bus. Best part of the book is hearing from Cardan.

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

A Bunch of Excuses!

I've never liked Taryn and now I really don't like her. This whole apology to Jude just sounds like a bunch of excuses to me. Taryn had a choice and she chose to do things that would hurt her sister- her twin- in so many ways. I still enjoyed getting the other side of the story, but Taryn just made me mad.

Makes you hate her even more!

I have no idea how Black thought this would make someone empathize with her. It only highlights her selfishness, cowardess, and treachery. I'm already annoyed with Jude inevitably forgiving her in the next book.

Being greedy

I wanted more.
I wish it could’ve also shown his point of view. To find out what he was thinking through all of this scheming.

In sync

It was definitely in sync with The Cruel Prince. It was actually quite nice to hear Taryn's side of the story and why. Your typical sibling differences and rivalries. The audio version was amazing!
