  About The Book

Before Alice and Lia became keepers of the Prophecy that turned sister against sister, it belonged to their mother, Adelaide. She is plagued by the call of the demonic Souls of the Otherworld, who work to persuade her to leave the world of the living behind. With her death, Adelaide, as a "Gate" to the Otherworld, has the ability to transport the Souls and their leader Samael into the real world, where they would cause certain and monumental destruction. Samael's call and promise of eternal peace in the planes of the Otherworld are growing more difficult to resist, but Adelaide holds on to her humanity to protect her two daughters, who would inherit the same curse of the Guardian and the Gate were she to give in to Samael's urgings.


In this novella that delves further into the Prophecy, Adelaide straddles the two worlds as she emotionally deteriorates until she finally decides to leave one world behind for good.

  Author

Michelle Zink lives in New York and has always been fascinated with ancient myths and legends. Never satisfied with simply reading them, she usually ends up asking, "What if?" Sometimes asking only leads to more questions, but every now and then, when everything falls into place just right, a story is born. Prophecy of the Sisters is one of those stories.
