Mini Review: Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink

Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
Publisher: Little, Brown
Format: Kindle ebook
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy, Young Adult
Publication Date: 8.21.2009
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.

What I loved

  • Michelle Zink's writing. It was beautiful!
  • The setting. I was drawn to the time period, and I liked the Gothic feel it had to it.
  • The concept of the prophecy. Seriously. Generations of sisters turned against each other? Genius!
  • The strong beginning.

What I didn't love

  • The plot fell short. Honestly, I was expecting more, and it didn't deliver.
  • There were a few times when the emotions of the characters didn't match with the situation. Most notably, was a horrible part towards the end, where emotions were just not there...and they really should have been.

In short: Prophecy of the Sisters is not without its merits, and the prophecy itself is so good, that I would still recommend it to anyone who is interested in the genre.


  1. Don't you hate when the plot just doesn't deliver how you were hoping it would? The concept sounds awesome though.

  2. Haha at the emotion mismatch. I can't really imagine what that's like. I am a new follower.


  3. Thanks for your honesty! Sounds like I should skip this one.

    BTW, great mini!

  4. Jessica: Definitely. Especially because it was such an original, enticing concept.
