Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads;
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.
Michelle Zink is an author that knows how to do imagery. This story is one another of those stories about good and evil and angels in the mix. I liked the whole idea of the prophecy. This whole book was a good solid book. It was not the best of the books I have ever read, but the story had an original feel. I think that if you like amazing imagery, a character that you wished that wasn't evil, a little bit of the tearing up in the eyes, and a story that is fast to get through; then, this book is one for you.
