Michelle Zink lives in New York and has always been fascinated with ancient myths and legends. Never satisfied with simply reading them, she usually ends up asking, "What if?" Sometimes asking only leads to more questions, but every now and then, when everything falls into place just right, a story is born. Prophecy of the Sisters is one of those stories.

This novel is a very enjoyable reading, I which the writer reveals the plot about twins, Lia and Alice.
The story trigger happens when their father dies in an odd way leaving them and their sibling Henry, to the custody of their aunt.
Strange things start to happen. They discover themselves engaged in a prophecy that could bring back The Devil, and his army, to the world.
One of the sisters is a Gate that will make that possible; The other sister is the Guardian who needs to avoid that from occurring.
The Gate needs to find four keys to preventing the prophecy from being fulfilled.
This book is a page-turner that will keep you tuned on the edge of your nerves and the chair until the last paragraph. It is an excellent première from a very talented writer. I am willing to read the other two chapter-books in this trilogy.
