2009 book 204

Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters
I kind of hate when books don't tell you they're the first in a trilogy, so you're getting all into the story and then get near the end and realize you're nowhere near any kind of real conclusion and will now have to wait ages and ages to get one. Not that this is some amazing book where I need to know what happens RIGHT NOW, but I certainly would have prefer being forewarned that there would be waiting. Anyway, it's a YA novel about a pair of twin sisters who discover they're part of a prophecy and destined to be enemies, and there are astral plans and spells and mystical things and whatnot. The characters are well done and the story is strong and even a little bit unusual, so I'll definitely read the next one. B+.
