DNF at page 82. Sisters of Shadow and Light has major Strange the Dreamer envy but is a pale phantom of the exquisite tale crafted by Laini Taylor.

Blurbs for SOSAL:

"I was completely swept away with this fierce magical story of broken family, and sisters trying to survive a mysterious past. Romance, betrayal, gryphons, forbidden doorways, and devoted sisters had me flipping the pages to unravel the secrets of this dark world where no one is who they seem to be. Larson has created a spellbinding world that has all the elements I love―magic, mystery, romance, and sisterhood! I can't wait for more!"―Mary E. Pearson, New York Times bestselling

SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT is about two sisters who have been trapped in an abandoned citadel with their mother and nurse for fifteen years--since the night the younger sister was born and their Paladin father disappeared. Then a stranger shows up and everything changes.

I loved this book. The magic was mesmerizing, the romance realistic and swoon-worthy, and the twists completely unexpected but perfectly logical. And the bond between the sisters was, of course, the very best part.

I already ca

Reading almost like a long lost fairy tale, this book takes us on a journey of self discovery, the power of forgiveness and the lengths two sisters will go to save one another and I enjoyed every second.

“Sisters of Shadow and Light” follows two young women hidden behind a hedge that threatens anyone who tries to enter, or more importantly leave. Zuhra remembers little from the night her sister was born other than it was the last time her mother was happy and her family whole, and since then she

I have read and loved every single book Sara B. Larson has written including this one.
Sisters of Shadow and Light is a brilliantly imaginative and lush world full of magic, wonder, love, sisterhood, family and action.
Sisters, Zuhra and Inara were raised in a Citadel walled by a magical giant hedge that keeps the outside world away and them in.
The Citadel is all that remains of their father's kind, the Paladins. Beings with great magical powers from another world that came to Vamala (The world th

An engaging and dynamic new portal fantasy story of two sisters, trapped by circumstance and freed by accident. Zuhra and Inara's bond is brilliantly and empathetically depicted, as well as their mother's post-traumatic stress.
