Prophecy of the Sisters - Michelle Zink
Title: Prophecy of the Sisters
Author: Michelle Zink
Genre: Fantasy
Rating: 4/5
# pages: Audiobook, ~8 hours
Date read: September, 2009

Sixteen-year-old Lia Milthorpe and her twin sister Alice have just become orphans, and, as Lia discovers, they have also become enemies. The twins are part of an ancient prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other. To escape from a dark fate and to remain in the arms of her beloved boyfriend James, Lia must end the prophecy before her sister does. Only then will she understand the mysterious circumstances of her parents' deaths, the true meaning of the strange mark branded on her wrist, and the lengths to which her sister will go to defeat her.

What I wasn't aware of when starting this audiobook was that it is the first book in a trilogy and not meant to stand alone. It does have plot - and indeed enough plot to keep me rivited - but mostly it serves as an introduction for future books.

Despite that, I did enjoy the book very much. It was very well written, and the characters fascinating. The book was read by Eliza Dushku who I felt did a very good job. A good narrator does not draw attention to herself but uses her voice to draw attention to the story, and I thought she managed this very nicely.

I'll be interested in reading the next book in the series.
