Synopsis: The ultimate battle between sisters is nearing, and its outcome could have catastrophic consequences. As sixteen year-old Lia Milthorpe searches for a way to end the prophecy, her twin sister Alice hones the skills she'll need to defeat Lia. Alice will stop at nothing to reclaim her sister's role in the prophecy, and that's not the only thing she wants: There's also Lia's boyfriend James. Lia and Alice always knew the Prophecy would turn those closest to them against them. But they didn't know what betrayal could lead them to do. In the end, only one sister will be left standing,
A bumpy continuance of the first book. Being left on a dramatic edge with PROPHECY OF THE SISTERS readers are confused entering the sequel. We forget much of the information we are given in the first book and we waste most of GUARDIAN OF THE GATE trying to rediscover the characters. The book wastes a good chunk of it simply trying to get to this mysterious island. Very little to do with the overall plot of the series. If I had to compare this sequel to another book? Its the ECLIPSE of its series, meaningless information, character discoveries, and a pathway to the next, much more important book. I enjoyed the first book, but I truly hope that Michelle Zink puts a little more effort, and makes the book more relevant to the series overall next time.
