Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe find themselves at opposing sides of a prophecy that has been foretold for centuries. Lia is slowly introduced to this information after the death of her father. As the mystery unfolds, Lia must determine what roles she plays, who she can trust, and the motivations of her sister in order to prevail.
Lia finds herself torn between the temptations of evil, the path of good, and the love she has for her family. She is tested emotionally and physically at every turn. The friends that assist her are in danger as long as they stay close yet can she continue on her quest without them?
Michelle Zink cleverly weaves the struggle within Lia into the unveiling of the prophecy. The descriptors pull the reader into Lia's mind and emotions. You find yourself experiencing the same tensions, thoughts, fears; and coming to the same questions and next steps.
The internal and external forces that influence Lia carefully play off each other. The transition between these perspectives is flawless. For this I highly complement Zink.
This book is a wonderful combination of character and plot. Readers will find it hard to put down. For more information on the book check out the website: www.prophecyofthesisters.com.
On a personal note, I cannot wait for Zink's next book.
