Sisters of Blood and Spirit by Kady Cross Book Review

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 is the kind of paranormal book I love to read. It definitely had a lot of paranormal twists (I mean one of the main characters is a GHOST), which I loved, but it also had lots of humor, some romance, and even enough teenage “angst” to keep me interested.

This book has been compared to the show Supernatural at times, and I can see why. There’s a sibling relationship/codependency thing (sometimes rivalry) going on between the protagonists, an ongoing investigation about some spooky thing, and there are definitely definitely ghosts and demons present which almost always means an exorcism is going to happen pretty soon.

I honestly really liked this book. Both Wren and Lark are awesome and relatable protagonists. They’re down to earth, and easy to get along with (for the most part). I like that they each have their own POV because we can really see what’s going on with them.

The paranormal aspect is by far the most interesting, because it’s where you see most of the myths and lore about ghosts and demons that we’re used to. (Salt keeps away ghosts, holy water exorcises demons, etc). Not to mention there were also a few times where you would feel chills going down your spine because of the utterly scary things going on.

There is some romance going on that really didn’t take up much of the book, which I loved. And there were also some really great emphasis on friendship and family that really brought up the book for me.

I absolutely loved that the relationship between Wren and Lake was explored. To see the dynamic between them (one was alive, the other dead), was interesting to say the least, and I really think it’s something you should read for yourself so you can understand that particular conflict.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was wonderfully written in terms of the paranormal aspect; utterly eerie at parts, and then ridiculously funny in others; explored romantic, filial, and platonic relationships extremely well, and overall made for a really great book.

It ended in a cliffhanger, so I absolutely cannot wait for the next book!


  1. So happy you liked this so much! I think with the cliffhanger ending though, I will wait until the next book before starting it but you have me excited to get to it!

  2. I loved this book too! I remember finding it via Kindle and the cover and description lured me in.
