Without the Keys, something terrible will happen.

Something that cannot be undone.

And with them, I might bring an end to the riddle of the Prophecy and my strange part in it.

If Alice and I are on conflicting sides of the Prophecy, 

the Keys would be dangerous in her hands.

Which means I have to find them.

And I have to do it before my sister.

Sixteen year-old Lia Milthorpe has just recently lost her father, leaving her parentless. But when a strange mark appears on her wrist, she realizes she is being branded with much more than her newfound title of orphan. Lia and her twin sister Alice are part of an ancient prophecy that has turned generations of sisters against each other.

Lia hides this discovery from Alice and even from her beloved James, but to escape from the burden this secret bestows she must end the prophecy—before her sister. Only then will she understand the mysterious circumstances of her parents’ deaths, the true meaning of the mark on her wrist, the lengths to which her sister will go to defeat her, and the impact the resolution of the prophecy could have.

With, haunting, lyrical prose, this multi-layered story of family, friendship, and romance explores the timeless question of predetermination versus free will. And it takes readers on an unforgettable coming-of-age journey where one sister’s self-discovery could have an impact of Biblical proportion.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Zink does not shy away from grounding her fantasy in the sisters' characters. This arresting story takes readers to other planes of existence.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • Eliza Dushku has an appealingly husky voice, and she narrates with clarity and feeling. Her even-tempered performance keeps the listener engaged in the sketchily plotted tale. Occasional background music announces dramatic moments, and the purr of Dushku's voice carries listeners right to the cliffhanger ending. AudioFile
  • “An intense and captivating story that gives a whole new meaning to sibling rivalry.” 

    VOYA (starred review)

  • “A captivating tragedy immersed in a world of spells, Samhain and twisting family allegiances.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This is a brooding, haunting tale of an ancient struggle between living and dead, with two sisters at its heart. It's Gothic, Edwardian, and absolutely un-put-down-able!” 

    Tamora Pierce, author of the New York Times bestselling Beka Cooper series

  • “From dangerous seances with deadly consequences to coldblooded sibling murder, this tale is extremely dark, but Zink's methodical unfolding of events will draw readers in.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “This gothic horror-romance will appeal to aficionados of all ages. A fresh and engaging cast of characters, a page-turning plot and lyrical prose add up to an accomplished feat of storytelling.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 2/19/2014

    " This book was very different from the first book in the series but I really enjoyed it. I think Lia is an amazing female character which is refreshing to read about. This book is also full of action and adventure which is such a nice change from the books I usually read. I highly recommend this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/3/2014

    " I was a little disappointed with this one, especially since I loved the first book so much. After all the suspense that was built up in the first book, this one felt anticlimactic - it felt so much like nothing was really happening. Also, the whole thing with Dimitri sort of grated on my nerves after awhile since it started to feel overdone...although I do like him better than James, who mostly just seems lifeless to me. Hopefully the next book is better. "

    " Awal membaca agak sukar dimengerti, alur agak lambat. memasuki pertengahan baru seru, menegangkan. Karakter Alice sukar ditebak, ternyata dia sudah mengetahui mengenai ramalan, dan menjadi lawan yang kuat untuk Lia.
    Covernya versi Indo, bagus banget. Suka banget covernya. "
