Lark Noble is finally happy. She’s trying to move on and put the events of the past behind her: the people who avoided her because she talked to the ghost of her dead twin sister, the parents who couldn’t be around her anymore and even the attempt she made
on her own life. She finally has friends—people who know her secrets and still care about her—and she has Ben, the cute guy she never saw coming.
Wren Noble is lonely. Unable to interact with the living, she wants to be happy for her sister’s newfound happiness, but she feels like she’s losing her. It doesn’t help that Kevin, the very not-dead guy she was starting to fall for, seems to be moving on.
Then Wren meets Noah, the spirit of a young man who died a century ago. Noah is cute, he’s charming and he makes Wren feel something she’s never felt before. But Noah has a dark influence on Wren, and Lark’s distrust of him drives the sisters apart for the
first time in their lives. As Halloween approaches and the veil between the worlds thins, bringing the dead closer to the world of the living, Lark must find a way to stop whatever deadly act Noah is planning, even if it means going through her sister to do

Sisters of Salt and Iron
The girls are back and just as they think their lifes are settling down their world is turned upside down.
Life is better than normal for Lark. She now have a group of friends who know about her abilities to communicate with ghosts,
and accept her and her sister.
For Wren, she’s happy that Lark is happy, but at the same time, Wern longs for friends and a life of her own. That is until
she meets Noah, an intriguing and mysterious ghost, who finally makes Wren feel like she has found the life she longs for. But Noah isn’t quite the gentleman he appears to be, and his influence over with Wren begin to drive the two sisters apart.
I enjoyed not only getting a better understanding of the girls relationship but also watching it grow in this book. With their new friends, Lark and Wren’s relationship shifted, as for the first time in their life’s they have other people in their life’s and as a result their
focus was no longer solely on each other. It was nice to see a very natural tension between the two. But, like any relationship, in the end, t, their bond stronger than ever.
We get some answers regarding the mysterious of Lark and Wren’s , starting with their great-great grandmother, who also had a twin with identical circumstances. Emily and Alys played a large role in this novel, and I’m certainly will be playing an even bigger role in the next.
I really enjoyed the overall story and pacing though I did feel that there could have been a bit more build up towards the
revelation of Noah’s plans as well as the final confrontation, but it didn’t affect the plot or pacing in any way.
It will be great to see how
