Prophecy of the Sisters

'Without the Keys, something terrible will happen. Something that cannot be undone. And with them, I might bring an end to the riddle of the Prophecy and my strange part in it. If Alice and I are on conflicting sides of the Prophecy, the Keys would be dangerous in her hands. Which means I have to find them. And I have to do it before my sister.' This is the story of sixteen-year-old Lia Milthorpe's quest to discover her role and her twin sister's in a powerful prophecy that has affected twin sisters for generations. But nothing can prepare her for what she discovers - about herself, about her family, and about the danger that goes from haunting her dreams to becoming her reality. 4.0 out of 5 based on 1 reviews

Reviews

The Guardian

Eric Brown

Marketed for young adults, this gothic horror-romance will appeal to aficionados of all ages. The intricate plot twists are matched by Zink's control of her characters' complex personalities as, with uncommon skill for a first-time novelist, she builds up to a terrific climax and cleverly lays the groundwork for more books to follow. A fresh and engaging cast of characters, a page-turning plot and lyrical prose add up to an accomplished feat of storytelling.
