Lia has recently lost her father. Her twin sister Alice, brother Henry, and Lia are now orphans. When a strange mark appears on her wrist and she keeps being attracted to a strange bracelet. Lia and Alice are part of an ancient prophecy that has tuned generations of sisters againist another.
Lia hides this discovery from Alice and even from James, the boy who he loves. Lia has to end the prophcey before her sister. Only then does she understand the mysterious circimstances of her parents' deaths, what the mark on her wrist really means. what her sister will do in order to win, and what the downfall of her part of the prophecy could bring to the world. Will Lia be able to make the right decision.
Lia is an amazing character. She grows in this book and learns a lot about herself. Alice was just evil and most of her actions shocked me. James was very sweet, but I don't understand why Lia didn't tell her even if it may have been a burden to him. Sonia and Luisa were great friends and very supportive. The plot was laced with originality and well woven to be both realistic and surpring. Zink was able to keep the many facets of the book alive. She made a wonderful debut and I can't wait for more books. I reccomend this book. It comes out on August 1st.
Below is an amazing book trailer made by Vania.
