2010 book 253

Michelle Zink's Guardian of the Gate
I barely remembered anything about the first book in this series, except that there were twin sisters on opposite sides of a prophecy, but things had gotten messed up, so the bad twin had the traditionally good role, and vice versa. In this sequel--which suffers terribly from middle chapter syndrome--we learn a little more about the mythology of this world, and pieces are moved into place for the finale (and a lot's going to have to happen in that finale), and the main character gets a new love interest, but otherwise it's just a lot of road-tripping. Only on horses, b/c it's the 1900s, which I keep forgetting. B.
