The Quick and Dirty: Taryn’s letter to Jude, explaining that happened in Book 1. The situation with Locke, her feelings about him and ultimately why she betrayed Jude.

Ok, so I read this out of order but I’m glad that I did because when Holly Black released that excerpt from The Queen of Nothing, I felt so much better about Taryn. At first I thought reading The Lost Sisters would shine some light on why Taryn was such a horrible sister, but I think I hated her more after reading her reasons why she did what she did. The excerpt is bringing me back a little… if you haven’t read it, do both. Get this book then go read the excerpt.


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.
