Description from GoodReads:

   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. 


   Don't look. Don't Look.
   I saw the cover for Sisters of Blood and Spirit and just knew I had to read it. It immediately became one of my most anticipated books of the year. I requested it, and asked everyone I knew if they had a copy, then finally Kady Cross offered to trade me for pendants. I was ecstatic!
   I had originally wanted SoBaS for its beautiful cover but boy was the book itself fabulous too. I loved both sisters, Wren the dead girl with life, and Lark the sister alive but not wanting to live.
   The ghost Cross created creeped me the heck out, it had the perfect balance of eerie and disturbing. Along with the cuts and scratches you couldn't see, I had the chills. It was glorious.
   The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the fact the book was supposed to have a shadowlands where the dead people live, but the only thing we saw there was the library. We didn't really learn anything about it either. So I hope the sequel will teach us a lot more about it.
   Overall Sisters of Blood and Spirit was a stupendous read, and I can't wait to learn more about the shadowlands in the sequel!
