CIRCLE OF FIRE
Release Date: July 3rd, 2012
Source: Hardcover from Publisher
With time dwindling but her will to end the Prophecy stronger than ever, Lia sets out on a journey to find the remaining keys, locate the missing pages of the Prophecy, and convince her sister Alice to help–or risk her life trying. Lia has her beloved Dimitri by her side, but Alice has James, the man who once loved her sister–and maybe still does. James doesn’t know the truth about either sister, or the prophecy that divides them. And Alice intends to keep it that way.
There are some secrets sisters aren’t meant to share. Because when they do, it destroys them. This stunning conclusion to Michelle Zink’s Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy will make saying good-bye bittersweet for readers.
Filled from cover to cover in Michelle Zink’s lush, descriptive writing, Circle of Fire was a wonderful conclusion to a coveted trilogy. The third, and final, installment in The Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy takes off a few months after Guardian of the Gate left off.
I found myself diving headlong into Zink’s Victorian world filled with gorgeous gowns, Masquerade balls, and lurking evil. Lia and Alice are as alike as ever, so much so that Lia feels like she’s morphing into her evil twin. On top of that, Alice is trying to wed James – Lia’s previous beau, who knows nothing about the Prophecy that taints their lives.
Lia’s time is running out and there’s still so much that needs to be done. Another key must be found, a mysterious Stone, and of course, Lia must still try to gain Alice onto her side. All impossible tasks, made even harder by the fact that no one can be trusted and Lia is growing weaker with each passing night.
The most memorable aspect of Circle of Fire, and all of Michelle Zink’s books (including her upcoming one), is the writing. It’s, as I said earlier, lush, descriptive and classy. And then there’s the plot – incredibly unique, heartfelt, and action packed.
If you haven’t started this series, all I can say is, what are you waiting for? And if you’ve read the first two and you’re hesitant to pick this up, you should. Circle of Fire is the perfect conclusion we’ve all been waiting for.
