“It took me a few chapters to get into this story, especially since I had to get acquainted with the style of speech in the late 1800's. Once I got a handle on it, I was sucked into the story of Lia, Alice, Sonia, and Luisa and their part in the Prophecy of the Sisters. Michelle Zink expertly gave you just enough information to satisfy your curiosity, but left more questions in its place to keep you turning the page. I can't wait to read the next in the series. ”Laura C wrote this review Monday, January 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This is a YA book and so was an easy read. I enjoyed the storyline of the two sisters - one which is destined to be the Gate for which the Souls will be able to cross back over to earth. The other sister is the Guardian, who is to keep the Souls from getting through. You get to learn all about the Prophecy and slowly learn the roles that each sister plays.
The story begins with the unexplained death of their father. It isn't until he dies that the strange tatoo appears on Lia's wrist. Unfortunately because their mother had died when they were young, and now their father was gone, no one had explained anything about the prophecy to them or the role they were to play in it. Lia soon meets Sonya and Luisa, two girls who live in the same village, who have similar tatoos on their wrists. While they have both heard the prophecy, Sonya is the one who seems to perceive that it actually contains some significance. Together with Lia they set out to discover everything they can about the prophecy and what their parts in it are going to be.
This is book one in a trilogy. Book 2 is Guardian of the Gate, and book 3 is Circle of Fire. I hope to continue on in this trilogy soon.”
“This is a very good book. It was kind of confusing at first but the end was really good. I think that the author made it seem that women could do anything they wanted to at that time. But it is not true.”Samanta Carreno wrote this review Tuesday, November 27, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“It was interesting. For sure interesting. It was a new and seemingly creative take on Fallen Angels. Not that I've read to much Angel Paranormal works. I enjoyed it, and the writing was good.
However I felt that not much happened. She spent almost the whole book figuring things out, and the situation getting worse and building up. But she doesn't actually leave to do something till the end.
But it was enjoyable, and eventually I get to the sequels.”
