The Prophecy of the Sisters is a tragic story of betrayal, magic, loss, and love. It is a tale of good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, and the incredible journey of four young girls locked in an ageless battle to defend humankind. Michelle Zink brings something new to the table, something that will leave readers screaming for book two. Lovers of gothic fantasy will not be disappointed in the slightest, and those looking for romance are sure to get their fair share. Prophecy of the Sisters had me riveted to one spot, immovable for six hours until I had finally finished. The mysteries and riddles are sure to keep clever minds churning, while the twists and romance are sure to stop the heart. Michelle has created a classic tale of ancient evil and endless good, and she has done so with a skillful grace.

First off, the concept and plot was interesting and I appreciated how nonfictional elements were incorporated to create a story that felt both worldy and unwordly. Now I'm not usually a slow reader when I have the time to read leisurely without a deadline, but the story did not pick up until much later (in the 200 pages or so), which made me feel like I would stop reading at any moment. The characters (with the exception of Sonia) were quite plain and boring. Alice I think is of an orthodox evil and I think "evil" in her sense could have been taken to a completely different level. The dialogue, despite the decade it takes place in, was stiff, felt unnatural to read, and added to the monotony of the slow story climax. Overall it wasn't what I expected when I read the early plot summary before the release. The storyline has a lot of potential and I hope that the sequeal, if there is one, can avenge the not-so-glamorous prequeal.
