My feelings:

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

My Review:
Since 2009 the Prophecy of the Sisters was on my wish list and it took me five whole years to finally get to it. And I’m glad I didn’t wait any longer.

I really enjoyed reading about the bond the sisters had and the story how they become orphans. Lia and Alica are twin sisters and they were very different from each other. One was evil and the other one good. I found Lia a bit dependant on everyone in the house they were living in, especially on her sister Alice. Towards the end her character does change and she becomes braver and relies on her own strengths.

Even though it had a slow start and I couldn’t get right away into it, the plot is interesting and
who doesn’t love a story about good versus evil. There isn’t a lot of action in the book, but there  were some surprises (evil surprises) that I didn’t expected. At all.

After all I really enjoyed the first book in the series and I cannot wait to read the sequel.

I've heard some good things about this series but haven't picked up the first book yet. I like that this one had some surprises you weren't expecting; that's always nice.

I read this a long time ago and didn't really like it, but I might give it another try (: I still have it on my bookshelf.

I have this book on my kindle as well, and I still have not read it either!

I find it interesting to see how these two sisters can be so different.

Glad to see that you enjoyed it :)

@Alicia the Awesome: Yes, do try it. I really enjoyed reading the book. So, so good.

@Michelle: The sisters are totally different from each other. I do wish there was a bit more of the evil sister in this book.

@Blodeuedd: Indeed! :)
