Good if...you're my sister. (I'm serious my sister would probably love this book.)
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.
Sadly. I feel like such a cop-out because I didn't finish this book. People love this book. You should check out the reivews on Amazon. I mean serious check them out! But for me, this book just didn't hold my focus and I can no long keep trying to open it. I got to page 172 out of 343, a valiant effort, but I can go no further. It's not that it was that bad, I'm just bored. Which is sad because in the beginning I was so into it. But by the middle it felt like the dialouge was on repeat. I think for me, this story would have been better in present day. That's why above I said my sister would have loved it. She loves historical romances and I don't. I also would have liked to have seen the twin sister have a bigger role in the book. I won't be rating it because I didn't finish. But maybe you will have better luck. Try it because I seem to be the anamoly of the group.
