Acclaimed author Sara B. Larson continues her enchanting YA fantasy duology with a timeless fairytale feel in an original voice.
The doorway between the magical Visempirum and the human world has been reopened. Paladin are once more living in the citadel where Zuhra and Inara grew up completely isolated by the magical hedge that trapped them there. Amidst the brewing conflict between the Paladin and humans looms the threat of Barloc, who has stolen Inara’s immense power and continues to elude the Paladin who are desperately searching for him.
In this sequel to Sisters of Shadow and Light, Inara and Zuhra must navigate the treacherous paths of self-discovery, their love for each other, and for the boys who have captured their hearts. Together, they search for the strength within themselves to bridge the divide between the two worlds they inhabit, even as war threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—they love.
Praise for Sisters of Shadow and Light/>“Packed with fascinating relationships, pulse-pounding romance, and breathtaking adventure, this story held me captive to every page.” ―Kathryn Purdie, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Burning Glass
“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 author of The Kiss of Deception

I’m always so satisfied and happy with duologies! There’s something just so special about fitting in the story in two books. And while I still want more, as I always do with duologies, the ending was a solid finale to these two books. But me wanting more is probably why I like duologies so much. I ALWAYS want more because I never feel like the story drags on for too long. And I’m happy with occasionally leaving a series begging for more books down the road.
In this second book we really get to see the sisters come into their own. You definitely see growth from them both in this book and honestly I couldn’t ask for more than that when looking for character development. I love when the changes are visible but not necessarily a huge and implausible change. But this story as a whole is really exciting and will take you on yet another wild ride leading all the way to the end. There are some bumps along the way but throughout it I remained engaged and needing to learn what happens next.
I really enjoyed this duology and look forward to seeing what Larson comes up with next! There was so much excitement in this series but even amidst all of that we still got solid character development between the first and second books.
