I had mixed feelings about The Prophecy of the Sisters. Let's start with the positive, shall we?
The storyline was good. Beyond good- great. Intriguing, suspenseful, and original. I think that's what has attracted so many readers; this is a story that hasn't been told before. We YA lovers flock to these in particular, don't you agree? Also, I positively loved the characters Sonia and Luisa- they were the glimmer of light in the dark subject matter. In fact, I found that all of Zink's characters had genuine personalities.
However, I did feel like the writing quality brought the book down a notch. I hate to say that, because the idea was so unique and well thought-out. But, I felt like it just could have been written...better. I can't pinpoint exactly what I felt was wrong, but sometimes I felt that sentences or paragraphs could have been worded differently.
I believe the good outweighs the bad in this situation, and I will definitely be reading the next installment of The Prophecy of the Sisters.
