I am always amazed at the work Vania from VLC Productions puts into each book trailer that she designs and creates. Coming from someone who used to think book trailers were an epic (epic) waste of time, this means something. I love the fact that Vania can give me the info I need on the book without deciding too many of the places and faces I want to imagine myself. If I am ever in need of a trailer. I know where I will be going. You should head on over to the site by clicking the link above and check it out. Gonna put some of my favorite trailers here including her newest one for none other than the damsel of Spiderwick herself Holly Black.

An ancient prophecy divides two sisters-
Who will prevail?
Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in an 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.
Michelle Zink has captured my attention and added yet another series to my ever growing list. Lia is a great character and so easy to relate to that even though at times the stories mysteries were at least to me predictable chapters in advance, I was able to look past that and just enjoy the story and enjoy watching Lia’s reactions to the bumps and tumbles along the way.
I read a lot of great reviews for this book when it came out and that is one of the things that kept me from it. However I was coaxed into reading it by @CatherineHaines of On The Nightstand. I will be forever in Catherine’s debt for convincing me this book is worth the hype.
Comparable to but vastly outshining Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle Trilogy, I find my mind going back to this book and trying to decipher what will happen in book two. The writing style is perfect. Perfect timing, perfect flow. I finished the book in under five hours and am left with the feeling of wanting more.
If you haven’t read Prophecy of Sisters yet then I suggest you hop to. It was a fun and fantastically dark read and perfect for those of us waiting on spring.
