Dain Greenbriar: Taniot and Eldred's son; Balekin, Elowyn, Rhyia, Caelia and Cardan's half-brother; Oak's biological father; killed by MadocThe story is told in two timelines, and whilst part of me would like to have seen Harriet do more research into finding more about her grandmother, I liked hearing Emma, Ruby & Lily’s stories. The historical part of the story is based around the three sisters & also three sister ships: Olympic, Titanic & Britannic, each having a significant impact on the family. I appreciated that the author had done good research & equally that the “titanic story” was a relatively minor part, it’s so easy for the famous story to overshadow other things.
An engrossing story from beginning to end, THE LOST SISTER sweeps you away to another time and into the history of Titanic and her two lesser known sisters, Olympic and Britannic. Kathleen McGurl has meticulously researched the history of these liners interspersing them with a fictional tale of three other sisters around the same time. The journey she takes us on is as emotional as it is heartbreaking through her wonderful cast of characters. Her depiction of Titanic's demise was breathtaking as well as poignant as one of the most famous events in history is interwoven with this book's own tragic tale. The Cruel Prince (2018) is the first book in the series. It follows Jude Duarte, a mortal girl living in Elfhame, a faerie world. Swept against her will to Elfhame, Jude must adapt to living alongside powerful creatures with a deep disdain for humans and a penchant for violent delights while also figuring out her feelings for faerie prince Cardan Greenbriar.  This is the first episode of the series in which Winona Ryder ( Joyce Byers), Gaten Matarazzo ( Dustin Henderson; appears only in archive footage), Caleb McLaughlin ( Lucas Sinclair; appears only in archive footage), Natalia Dyer ( Nancy Wheeler), Charlie Heaton ( Jonathan Byers), Joe Keery ( Steve Harrington) do not appear. Noah Schnapp ( Will Byers ), Sadie Sink ( Max Mayfield; appears only in archive footage ), Dacre Montgomery ( Billy Hargrove ), Cara Buono ( Karen Wheeler ), Sean Astin ( Bob Newby) and Paul Reiser ( Dr. Owens) do not appear either.
During a podcast for Variety, The Duffers revealed that one episode of the season could be considered a standalone episode.  This was later revealed to be Chapter Seven and will center heavily on Eleven's story arc.  Van, "The Roach": Member of the Court of Shadows; Dain's former spy and theft expert; Liliver's lover Oh my word! THE LOST SISTER is a compelling dual timeline tale with one family at its heart tragically torn apart both in the past and present. Spanning more than 100 years, family dynamics are explored between sisters and the yearning for independence fraying the bonds that hold them all together. Tension is rife within each household plagued by children leaving home, those left behind, duty, obligations, a wealth of misunderstandings, health issues and decidedly strong personalities. And despite the passage of time, while some things change some things remain the same.
Cardan summons Jude and pulls her into a small room. He shows her a message Balekin sent him asking to meet. Cardan is concerned that Jude is hiding things from him, and she admits to intercepting messages from Balekin. Jude asks Cardan to seduce Nicasia to get information from her. Cardan dislikes this idea and instead practices his wiles on Jude. Jude is effectively seduced by Cardan. As they kiss, Jude thinks about how, out of all the mean things he has done to her over the years, making her like him more is the worst one. The Prologue recounts the birth of Cardan Greenbriar, and a prophecy made at his birth that he will be the last of Eldred's offspring and will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne. The Royal Astrologer who makes this prediction also says that out of the boy's spilled blood can a great ruler rise, but only after the aforementioned prophecy comes to pass. As a result of this prophecy, Cardan is poorly treated and raised in squalor despite the fact that he is a Prince of Faerie. The story starts in present day with Harriet who’s recently been widowed and is decluttering her attic as she prepares to move from her large family home to a smaller property. During the sort, she comes across her grandmothers sea trunk from when she worked on board ocean liners. Amongst the items is a photograph of three sisters. This discovery surprises Harriet as her grandmother only ever mentioned having one sister.
