Circle of Fire

Author: Michelle Zink 
Pages: 368 
Publisher: Little, Brown 
Format: Hardcover 
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Summary (from 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.




My Summary: As the end approaches, Lia must rush to gather the remaining pieces required for the ceremony to close the Gate. But that's not all. As she struggles to maintain the tense alliance with the others, Lia must also fight off the Souls that threaten to trap her in the Void forever. All this as Lia tries to convince her twin Alice to stop doing the Souls' bidding. And if she fails, it may cost not only her own life but those of everyone around her.

My Thoughts: This series has been one of my favourites for years, and I knew before I started that this final installment would not disappoint. Zink's beautiful writing flows wonderfully, hooking you from start to finish. I've adored the perfect blend of historical fiction and the paranormal since the beginning, and Circle of Fire showcases the author's immense talent in blending the two. 

The reader is immediately pulled into Lia's world and feels her struggling to stay in control. You can feel how much the frenzied, rushed search is taking its toll on Lia, and the suspense keeps you glued to the pages until the very end. 

This was an amazing conclusion to an amazing trilogy, and I've enjoyed every moment. 

Final Thoughts: I recommend this series to readers who enjoy historical fiction with paranormal elements - fans of Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices trilogy will definitely enjoy it!
