    1. I really do not like to give books bad ratings I feel like an author puts a lot of energy into writing a book, and I should respect them for that But, there comes a time when I am forced to do what I don t care to do, rate a book poorly Such was the case with Prophecy of the Sisters I went into this book with an open mind, and I was curious to see what Ms Zink could do with the concept of sisters who are on the opposite side of an ancient battle between Heaven and Hell, if you will.What were my [...]


    2. Nothing happens in this book People take walks and talk Then they ride horses and talk Then they go into town and talk All the girls are dumb The only interesting one is Alice She was only interesting because she s evil This book is a rip off of A Great and Terrible Beauty Gemma Doyle is way better than this Definitely skip.


    3. A review in book covers.EXHIBIT A First published in hardback with this cover It s a mirror image of a statue symbolising the identical twins on opposing sides in the book It screams dark, gothic and mysterious.EXHIBIT B Now available in paperback with this cover Now this is an image of two very different girls with an airy fairy silver leaf design which is also present on every page.I wanted to read EXHIBIT A but when it came to reading the story I got EXHIBIT B I ll explain further When I read [...]


    4. Was an interesting readBut don t think it was what I wanted to read at the time Loved how my town was mentioned in it though


    5. What a letdown After all of the awesome reviews on here, I expected Prophecy of the Sisters to be better The idea is interesting, as is the twist in the story Zink does a great job setting the scenes but that is the best I can say about this one Prophecy of the Sisters is a badly written mystery You know, the sort where each discovery is a person place thing which only provides a certain amount of information but always points the protagonist in this case, Lia in the right direction so she will [...]


    6. A combination of depth, personality, and fun, Prophecy of the Sisters brings back all the joys of reading It is a story one can fully immerse themselves in, due to a detailed plot and in depth character analysis The combination of 19th century lifestyle, mythical creatures, and biblical background makes this one of the most interesting books I ve read Michelle Zink develops her characters early, propelling the plot forward into a story full of twists and turns One of the best written books I ve [...]

    8. I m not sure why I waited so long to read this book But for some reason I was apprehensive to do so I mean this book has been sitting on my bookshelf for ever Probably a year oops And I am kicking myself for not picking it up earlier It was a little slow for me at first there wasn t much happening, I was trying to figure out exactly what was going on But the beautiful writing and the richly descriptive details of the era kept me engaged Lia s story was so passionately told in the first person na [...]

    10. I love a story with a bit of a mystery that we get to solve along with the characters Prophecy of the Sisters has been a favourite of mine since I first read it in 2010 I then read the second one, but had to wait impatiently for the final book in the trilogy, Circle of fire So imagine my excitment when I found it in my local book shop It wasnt a difficult decision to re read the first two books again I thought every one loved this book as much as I did, so imagine my surprise when I read some en [...]

    16. Gosh, I cannot finish this book I put the book down, oh, two weeks ago and have been staring at it ever since But I have no desire to pick it back up The characters are thin as rice paper and I have absolutely no sense of them as people They sit, they talk, they walk.but they don t do anything Lia is the main character, but we don t learn anything about her Her twin sister, Alice, is a mere presence, despite the fact that she is our antagonist It is also strange that supposedly the twins were on [...]


    17. I found Prophecy of the Sisters to be a highly original novel, I don t think I ve read anything like it I often shy away from historical novels but this one I knew I had to pick up and I wasn t disappointed The way the characters carry themselves and behave was really exciting for me, I wanted to be sitting in the parlor playing cards with Lia and Henry and going up to my room where a fire was burning.For some reason I had decided this book was going to be really really scary, don t ask me why, [...]


    18. In questo momento sono molto orgogliosa di me perch 1 Ho letto un libro che non esattamente il mio genere preferito e sono riuscita a finirlo in un tempo relativamente breve 2 Con tutto quello che ho avuto da studiare nell ultima settimana, non so nemmeno dove ho trovato il tempo per leggerlo.Devo dire che gi di partenza mi ha incuriosito molto Ho infatti deciso di comprarlo perch la copertina era molto inquietante e il titolo sapeva di mistero e paura E infatti, durante le prime 75 pagine del l [...]


    19. This review refers mostly to slovak edition and to poor translations It still is partially true, but as I discovered the translator had made the book even worse my original english review is at the bottom of the page Videli ste niekedy takto spackan preklad Ja som doteraz skoro nikdy origin lne texty s na imi slovensk mi prekladmi neporovn vala, a to z dvoch d vodov Nikdy som sa nad t m poriadne nezamyslela a teda mi ani nenapadlo, e niekto to predsa mus prelo i a e sa mu to nie v dy mus podari [...]

    21. PROPHECY OF THE SISTERS begins a trilogy that speaks of olden times, musty secrets, and shadowy danger everywhere you turn Michelle Zink sets the mood extremely well the threat of darkness lurks on every page, and I kept on picturing the story running through my head in black and white and sepia This insistence on a lurking danger makes the story all the suspenseful and will keep you reading, frantically flipping the pages as if that will release some of the tension.This book is mostly expositi [...]

    23. I just finished Prophecy of the Sisters, and I really enjoyed it It was a little dark, but gripping at the same time, and I was impressed by the character development and plot intricacies Many YA books that I read tend to have simplistic plots and characters but I think older kids want development The author has a great writing style the older fashioned language flows so effortlessly The ending left much to be desired however so I hope there is a sequel planned I didn t see any mention of it b [...]


    24. DNF It started out okay and I didn t feel attached to any of the characters but the premise intrigued me so I pushed on, hoping it would get better.Got to a certain point and still not much had happened yet, normally I can sit back and enjoy the ride but in case this case not so much MCs still hadn t grown on me eitherNot a bad book but it couldn t hold my attention


    25. A beautiful and mysterious fairytale that I could not put down With a beautiful biblical reference and a wonderful good overcomes evil tale this book is sure to keep you reading into all hours of the night This dark Gothic story has a delightfully hopeful side that you can t help but love The main character Lia takes you on a journey of discovery, love, loss, and what it means to grow up She left me with wanting and dieing for a sequel.


    26. I read this over holiday break and I highly recommend carving out some time to read it Prophecy of the Sisters is definitely that book, you know the one that you want to curl up with and savor Michelle sets the mood immediately, when you find yourself in 19th century New York and meet the 16 year old protagonist, Lia Milthorpe who is attending her father s funeral.From there the plot unfolds rapidly as does the mystery Why does the mark of a Jorgumand a snake devouring itself appear on Lia s wri [...]
