Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink


As sixteen-rear-old Lia Milthorpe searches for a way to end the prophecy that has divided her family for generations, her twin sister, Alice, works to hone the skills shell 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 beloved, James.

The sisters always knew that 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 standing.

Number of pages: 340


Lia’s story is intense. Guardian of the Gate is the 2nd book in the Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy. In this book Lia is on a journey to find the last two keys and the missing pages of the prophecy. This is a story filled with mystery, passion, determination, and betrayal. I just wanted to cry some parts while at other times I was so frustrated at how hopeless it all seemed. I really enjoyed this book. This is better than the first book, Prophecy of the Sisters, and I didn’t think that was even possible. This is not a mystery with clues, but with suspense, which I found thrilling. You never know whom you can trust in this story and that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I had to reread this book again once I finished it, like watching a movie mystery and keeping an eye out for any little tidbits of clues you might have missed and finding yourself at the ending just as shocked and thrilled from the last time you read it. From 1 to the desirable 10? I give this book a . . . 8.
