Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
An ancient prophecy divides two sisters.
Who will prevail?
Twin sisters Lia and Alice Milthorpe have just become orphans. They have also become enemies. As they discover their roles in a prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other, the girls find themselves entangled in a mystery that involves a tattoo-like mark, their parents’ deaths, a boy, a book, and a lifetime of secrets.
Lia and Alice don’t know whom they can trust.
They just know they can’t trust each other.
I just have the vibes that this gothic fantasy by a 2009 debut author will be fantastic, and after reading Steph's pub story with Michelle Zink, I'm even more convinced of its impending awesomeness.
The reason I picked this as this week's WoW is because I have stumbled upon SEVERAL chances for you to win an ARC of this exciting book! Steph is giving away a copy here, and upcoming author Malinda Lo (whose debut book, Ash, a lesbian retelling of Cinderella, I featured last Wednesday) is also giving away a copy here. Figured you guys might want to know about these opportunities. :) Go enter now!
Prophecy of the Sisters will be released in hardcover by Little, Brown on August 1, 2009.
