The second book in the stunningly well written Prophecy of the Sisters series! I absolutely loved this one, if not more than the first, actually!
Author: Michelle Zink
Publication: 2010, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Review: The chilling and mesmerizing tale of the Prophecy rages on, this time even more deliciously compelling and dangerous than before. Ms. Zink spins gorgeous and vehement scenes with her fervent yet beautifully sophisticated diction. Readers are lured to a much more contiguous level to Zink's stoic and admirable protagonist, as well as many other carefully characterized players. As one is swept off on this captivating journey, Zink expertly propels the plot into tempestuous regions that are absolutely breath-taking in the darkness and depth of the nuances. Many a shocking surprise is planted in this restlessly moving sequel and readers will find them to be perfectly and satisfyingly unexpected. As the tumult of a brilliantly drawn out voyage thunders on, the characters develop complex and close relationships with each other, bringing yet another tasteful tier to this stunning piece of work. Much like the preceding book in this exquisitely written series, the pace quickens near the end, and once more, Zink cuts the rope at yet another unbearable moment, although still with unfaltering poise for a nice, conclusive feel.

Final Notes: I loved love loved loved this one! I fell in love with all the characters and they were truly brilliant! This one has much more of a heated plot line, and it is fascinating, the scenes that it conjures up in the readers' minds! Already awaiting the arrival of "Circle of Fire".
