REVIEWS
"Hall maintains suspense until the very end. This story's dark, sinister edge... will leave readers eager to know what happens next in her standout addition to a popular YA genre." --Publishers Weekly Review

“There’s no doubt Hall knows how to write one heck of a creepy gothic novel. She pushes the limits with disturbing plot points in this scary, fast-paced story.”
--Romantic Times Book Reviews

"This suspenseful saga sits between fairy tale and thriller, though readers need not be a diehard fan of either genre in order to appreciate Hall's intricate story of family history, witchcraft, teenage romance and sisterhood."
--PW

"Character driven tale...deep Gothic feel and haunting foreboding atmosphere that hooks fan of all ages...THE LOST SISTER is a super thriller." --Harriet Klausner
