Review: Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink

Synopsis: With time dwindling but her will to end the Prophecy stronger than ever, Lia sets out on a journey to find the remaining keys, locate the missing pages of the Prophecy, and convince her sister Alice to help--or risk her life trying. Lia has her beloved Dimitri by her side, but Alice has James, the man who once loved her sister--and maybe still does. James doesn't know the truth about either sister, or the prophecy that divides them. And Alice intends to keep it that way. 

There are some secrets sisters aren't meant to share. Because when they do, it destroys them. This stunning conclusion to Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy will make saying good-bye bittersweet for readers.

My Review: Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink was a fantastic conclusion to an awesome trilogy. The pace of this novel was a little more faster than the last book, Guardian of the Gate. Which is a good thing, because I would of dreaded picking up this novel just to read a slow paced ending. I have thoroughly enjoyed Lia's entire journey, and Circle of Fire ends the journey perfectly. I couldn't have asked for a better conclusion than what Michelle gave.

Yes, at this point in the review I'm literally at a loss for words. Michelle Zink's writing is superb. Her writing style is fluid and magical. Michelle really has a gift for writing and being able to put readers into her stories. All along I felt like I was right alongside Lia and cheering her on.

Sometimes trilogies or book series end feeling kind of rushed. Michelle took her time writing out the well thought out ending. Each book tied nicely together. Circle of Fire certainly packed a lot of great feelings and messages to the readers. I felt a wide range of emotions while reading Circle of Fire. Among my favorites about this book is the theme of redemption, love, and friendship. I even came to love every single character by the end of this book.

Michelle has proven herself to be one of those authors I will read anything they write. I can't wait for more books by Michelle! If you haven't read the Phophecy of the Sisters Trilogy I highly suggest you do so. If you haven't yet read Circle of Fire what are you waiting on? Circle of Fire will not disappoint readers.
