Wren Noble is dead—she was born that way. Vibrant, unlike other dead things, she craves those rare moments when her twin sister allows her to step inside her body and experience the world of the living.
Lark Noble is alive but often feels she belongs in the muted Shadow Lands—the realm of the dead. Known as the crazy girl who talks to her dead sister, she doesn’t exactly fit in with the living, though a recent suicide attempt and time in a psych ward have proved to her she’s not ready to join her sister in the afterlife.
Now the guy who saved Lark’s life needs her to repay the favor. He and his friends have been marked for death by the malevolent spirit of a vicious and long-dead serial killer, and the twins—who should know better than to mess with the dead—may be their only hope of staying alive.
Sisters of Blood and Spirit has a really neat story that I found to be unique and easy to get caught up in. Lark and Wren, who share an interesting and unique bond, are fun main characters that flow and work together really nicely. Their personalities compliment and even each other out which I liked. Lark was a little more cold and distant while Wren was more warm (except for certain occasions), but I found myself liking their characters more and more as the story went on. The conversations are witty and had me laughing on more than one occasion. I would have loved to know more about their past, family history, and their connection and hope that you get a more in depth look into the story in later books. Kady Cross did an amazing job with the world building and left me wanting to know more about the Shadowlands. The ghosts were very eerie but added a great dimension to Sisters of Blood and Spirit!
