Author: Megan Kelley Hall
At the conclusion of Sisters of Misery we learn that Cordelia is still alive, and she plans to come back to find Maddie. In this sequel, The Lost Sister, we find out what led to Cordelia’s disappearance, and where she’s been hiding for the past year.
All the major players in this drama have received a tarot card, which seems to convey an eerie warning. Death is in the air, and the evil won’t stop until certain people are finally removed from Hawthorne, once and for all. Is this story taking place in our modern century, or have they returned to the witch trials of Massachusetts? Magic and mystery surrounds them, blending both eras until almost indistinguishable from each other.
But why is all this death necessary? For what end? Maddie will find out when she faces her enemy in the final showdown.
Once again, author Megan Kelley Hall has created a haunting novel of madness in a small, affluent New England town. In this sequel, she ties together the loose ends left open when Cordelia vanished. Although it’s not quite as well written as Sisters of Misery, readers will still enjoy this conclusion to a chilling story.
