In this page-turning story of good vs. evil, Prophecy of the Sisters refers to twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe, who face off in a battle of biblical proportions. Set against the looming and dark countryside in the 19th century, this book is a good one to cuddle up and read during a thunderstorm, and an especially good fit for readers who enjoy historical fantasy with a sprinkle of biblical and mythical references. One would think the newly-orphaned sisters would come together following the tragedy, but instead Lia discovers Alice is indeed her enemy, and a dark one at that. As they discover the roles they play in a deadly and dark prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against one another, the girls face the mystery of their parents' deaths, secrets, and a glowing burning mark that claims both. One good sister, one bad...only one can prevail. Other good reads that compliment this title are Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty and I, Coriander by Sally Gardner.
