    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 ...

    Mystery surrounds Zuhra and Inara. Secrets whose answers seem just out of reach for Zuhra who so desperately tries to take care of her sister, Inara, and gain the approval of her mother. Zuhra carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. I could feel her longing, isolation and her...

    SISTERS OF SHADOW AND LIGHT is a book that takes readers back to ancient history and a fantasy world found through a gate. The characters are likable and easy to relate to, with complex relationships between family, friends, and love interests. Then there's the story, which is full of ...

    First of all - Thank you to netgalley for giving me an arc in exchange for a review! This book does not start slow. There is so much going on from right at the beginning and that?s what I liked about it. Definitely not slow paced! I liked the relationship between the sisters and t...

    I believe there are no bad books...just books I don't enjoy, but someone else does. The reason why I avoid to rate a book less than 3 stars is because I do not want to discourage the author from improving, however, If I gave three stars to this one I wouldn't be honest. In fact, if I s...

    Sisters of Shadow and Light by Sara B. Larson is the first book in the series of the same name and if you know me at all, just by reading the summary you know this story is exactly what I look for in my books. I was so excited that I was able to get my hands on an early copy of this bo...

    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 t...

    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 hedg...

    What a beautiful book. Sisters of Shadow and Light is everything I love about fantasy novels. It actually reminds me of a grown-up version of The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine, one of my all-time favourite fantasy novels. Sisters of Shadow and Light has so many elemen...

    I received this galley from the publisher via NetGalley. Sisters of Shadow and Light twists around many traditional fantasy tropes in ways that feel fresh and fun. You have a mysterious castle, isolated by a sentient hedge. A family lives inside, though some may consider them monstr...

    #SistersofShadowandLIght #Edelweiss A beautifully written novel about the love between two sisters and the lengths that we will go to protect and keep that bond. Sara B. Larson has a fantasy novel that will make you feel emotional about how we love our family. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Sisters of Shadow and Light is a story that grows in complexity. At the beginning we aren't sure what keeps them trapped. Why the magic seems to have turned against ...

    This review was originally posted on The Moonlight Library. To be completely honest with you (and that's the only way to be when writing a book review), I requested this book for review from Netgalley because I mistook the author for someone else: someone whose books I had previousl...

    I?ve been a fan of Sara?s work for a long time, and this is my favorite of her books yet! I loved the main characters: sisters Inara and Zuhra! Their relationship was beautiful and relatable and loving. The story itself is gripping. I didn?t want to put it down, and the world Sar...

    Two sisters grow up in an abandoned citadel that once was home to magical Paladin Warriors. For more than fifteen years they?ve been trapped behind a sentient, deadly hedge until a young man is mysteriously allowed through. Zuhra has always protected her baby sister Inara but the hop...

    What an interesting read! My first experience with Sara B. Larson and I wasn't disappointed. I think my favorite thing about the story was that first and foremost the sisterly bond between Zuhra and Inara took the front seat of it all. There is romance inside of this story but it d...

    You can find this review on my blog Shades of Paper. ?I didn?t know? would probably never know. That not knowing was like an itch beneath my skin, unreachable and, at times, unbreakable.? This was the first time I read anything by Sarah B. Larson, and I have to say I ...

    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...

    I was really looking forward to this one. I literally started it the day I was approved and yet it took me a lot longer to read than it normally takes. I found myself not wanting to pick it up again for a couple reasons. Finally after a few days of not reading anything, I picked it up ...

    The writing is very much like a fairy tale, slow and introspective with a tiny touch of magic. It feels like a book much bigger than it is, but that?s not a bad thing. There is a lot of reflection, but it fills in blanks and drives the story forward. The first 100 pages or so are a p...

    I was hooked from the very line: "The night my sister was born, the stars died and were reborn in her eyes?" and literally couldn't stop until I finished it. It has a wonderful, original magic system, a gripping plot, and, above all, it is about sisters whose bond is stronger than ...

    DNF at the 60% mark. I swiftly lost interest at the one third mark, when the character is shut up in her room by her mother. There is very little plot and endless internal monologue, most of which is inconsequential. Very sad not to have liked this, as the first few chapters were absol...
