Circle of Fire by Michelle Zink

This book moved at neck breaking speeds and ultimately ends the series.  The creepiness comes back in this book as Lia is tempted and followed by the Guard to let loose the souls to wreck havoc on the earth.  Plus, things heat up with Dimitri…who doesn’t like a little heat from our leading lady and her man?  I love the two of them!

Title: Circle of Fire (Prophecy of the Sisters #3)

Author: Michelle Zink

Summary (by Goodreads):

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 take:

It was all wrapped up quite nicely.  It even felt like they put a little bow on top.

Lia is getting worn down, stressed out, and downright grumpy about a lot of things.  She feels like putting people at arms length will keep them from getting hurt.  Dimitri of course will have none of that and helps her to release her nightmares, fears, and emotions to him to help keep her sane.  *sigh…I do love him!

Alice has shown up in this book with James as her fiance. *gasp!  What a horrible sisterly thing to do!!  James of course has NO idea what’s been going on since Lia left him and hasn’t been communicating with him.  When Lia tries to help him see what’s going on, he just can’t comprehend the things she’s telling him are true. 

Lia pleads with Alice to try and get her to help put an end to the madness, but of course Alice has decided her fate.  So Lia is forced to try and shut the gate with herself, the keys, and without Alice.  We get to the “final showdown” (makes me feel like I’m on some game show saying that) and the outcome of the world is finally decided.  Somebody ends up dead.  I didn’t say who…it could be a-n-y-one.

I loved the series.  I might re-read it once I get through all 50 of the books I have on loan from the library sitting at my house taking up way too much space in my library shelves….  🙂
