Review: Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink



[Description:]


An ancient prophecy divides two sisters-


One good...




One evil...


Who will prevail?


Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents' deaths, a boy, a book, and a lifetime of secrets.


Lia and Alice don't know whom they can trust.


They just know they can't trust each other.

[Angel's Thought's:]




The first thing you notice when you begin reading Prophecy of the Sisters is just how beautifully it’s written. Michelle Zink has captured the story, setting, and characters all within this gorgeous and lyrical prose that draws you in from cover to cover. This is really one of those books I LOVE, because once you think you know what’s going to happen -- everything gets flipped around and keeps you guessing.

I’ve been wanting to read this book for some time, and was unspeakably excited when my ARC arrived in the mail. At first, I read only a chapter a night when I could, partially because of college limiting my reading time, and partially because it was just so good, I wanted to take my time and not rush through. But this became an impossible task after some time, because I simply HAD to know what was going to happen next.

So, I started to take the book with me to class. I’d read in between classes, before classes, and every night. Finally, I just ignored everything else one night and finished it. And OH MY GOD -- it was stunning!

Michelle Zink blends romance and mystery, sorrow and adventure, into an exquisite gothic novel that will chill you even after the final pages. It’s no surprise that I went and bought the hardback edition, because of it’s fantastic cover and because it’s one of those books that I have just fallen in love with. I’m ecstatic there will be more!

I highly recommend you go buy, read, and reread Prophecy of the Sisters ASAP!
