Review - Blog Tour for Prophecy Sisters by Michelle Zink

Summary from Inside Cover

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.

My Review

I am a part of the Book Tour ( for Prophecy Sisters. I enjoyed this book so much I am sad that I have to pass it on, I will buy this one for my collection.

Prophecy Sisters reminded me of the show Charmed which I am a huge fan plus thriller and suspense is my favourite genre to read, so you guessed it I loved this story. The research of a prophecy, sibling rivalry, family history with drama and a love romance that was a secret to all….

Prophecy Sisters is a dark mystery, every chapter gave you a little more to the prophecy you are trying to figure out along with the Lia. The more she digs, researches the more the story captures you. The story is told from Lia’s point of view.

I want to share this passage with you, it is not a spoiler for the book. I had it bookmarked and constantly went back to it while reading. This definitely is a book to buy not to read on an ereader. Found in an old book and Lia’s boyfriend translated it for her.

Through fire and harmony mankind endured
Until the sending of
the Guards
Who took as wives and lovers the woman of
Engendering His wrath.
Two sisters, formed in the same swaying
One Guardian, One the Gate.
One keeper of peace,
The other
batering sorcery for devotion.
Cast from the heavens, the Souls were
As the Sisters continue the battle
Until the Gates summon
forth their return,
Or the Angel brings the Keys to the Abyss.
Army, marching forth through the Gates.
Samael, the Beast, through the
The Angel, guarded only by the gossamer veil of protection.
Marks, Four Keys, Circle of Fire
Birthed in the first breath of Samhain
the shadow of the Mystic Stone Serpent of Aubur.
Let the Angel's Gate swing
without the Keys
Followed by the Seven Plagues and No
your arms, Mistress of Chaos, that the havoc of the Beast will flow
like a
For all is lost when the Seven Plagues begin.

If this passage intrigues you at all, I recommend you pick this one up and enjoy the mysterious journey.

The two concerns I had that was odd to me was that it was set around the 1800’s, it felt modern to me and every time the period was mentioned I kind of raised my eyebrows but this wasn’t a big deal to me but it may be to others. Also, as much as I enjoyed all of the characters, Michelle Zink did a great job with them. There was a major event that happened near the end and all except Lia didn’t seemed affected, it was just weird.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading this one. Sometimes I found myself daydreaming after a chapter and trying to think ahead, twice I even said ‘I knew it”.

I give it 4 ½ Great to the last drop.

Guardian of the Gate will be released August 2010, I can’t wait.

Thanks for visiting Tea Time with Marce
