Prophecy of the Sisters Book Review
Two twin sisters, one good and one evil. And one prophecy that began many generations ago. Check out The Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink.
Their mother passed many years ago. And now their father, too, has passed. Since their father’s death, Lia has noticed a change in her sister Alice. She isn’t mournful at all. Instead she’s upbeat and happy. Lia spies on Alice through a crack the door, whispering to herself. Her behavior is becoming more and more sinister, and somehow, Lia thinks it has something to do with the mark on her own arm that appeared just after their father’s death.
An Ancient Prophecy
While Lia’s beloved, James, and his dad sort through her father’s collection of books, James finds an old book that contains only one page. On it is a prophecy that explains both Alice’s behavior and Lia’s mark. They are part of an ancient prophecy, one the Guardian, the other the Gate. An evil soul called Samael is trying to break through into the human world, and Alice is eager to help him. Somehow Lia must use her role in the prophecy to thwart her sister’s evil plans and end the prophecy forever.
She enlists the help of Sonia, another teenager who can communicate with the dead, and Luisa, a friend from school. Both girls bare a similar mark to Lia’s, which proves that they play the role of Keys in the prophecy.
The Bottom Line
The Prophecy of the Sisters is set in the late 1800’s. It isn’t a difficult read for those who find reading about the past challenging. It’s a good story with a solid plot, and a few very climactic scenes. And best of all, for those of you who love ongoing stories, it’s going to be a series!
