Two sisters. United by blood. Divided by a prophecy.
Lia Milthorpe's determination to end the prophecy that has divided her family for generations is stronger than ever. With time dwindling, Lia sets out on a journey to locate the missing pieces of the prophecy needed to close the Gate, and to persuade her sister Alice to help - or she will have to risk her life trying to close it herself.
Lia has Dimitri by her sisde, but Alice has James, the man who once loved Lia - and maybe still does. James doesn't know the truth about either sister, or about the prophecy that divides them. And Alice intends to keep it that way.
There are some things sisters aren't meant to share. And some secrets that could destroy them both.
Yet another conclusion to a popular young adult series. I admit, I wasn't a huge fan of this series but when I read the second book, Guardian of the Gate, I was immediately drawn back into this world created by the author.
CIRCLE OF FIRE takes readers onto a whole new level and fans of the series will be shocked - well it was predictable but nonetheless shocked - by the final-showdown-of-an-ending. What I'm grateful of Michelle Zink is the way she stayed true with the novel. After all, this book is about the powerful bond between sisters - the love sisters share - and how easily something can tear them apart. My favourite character of all would have to be Lia herself. She's a strong heroine despite the whole fate-and-destiny thing, and she's still able to pull through the darkness even with her sister being her enemy. As for another favourite of mine . . . it would have to be Dimitri. Unlike James - a supporting character that never really appealed to me - Dimitri made it easy to fall in love with. I have a well-document case of loving fictional boys who are devoted to the right cause and it also helps that he's hot. I mean, what's a love interest without the hotness? Plus I fall hard for boys with the name Dimitri.
Overall if you're new to this series, then please read it or if you're a follower of Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters then be rest assured that you won't be disappointed by this conclusion. Despite the ending and a couple of little things that I found a little predictable, however everything that happened was exactly how I wanted it to end and I thank Michelle Zink personally for writing such a beautiful and mesmerizing series! I'm looking forward to future novels written by her!
