The ultimate battle between sisters is nearing, and its outcome could have catastrophic consequences. As sixteen year-old Lia Milthorpe searches for a way to end the prophecy, her twin sister Alice hones the skills she'll need to defeat Lia. Alice will stop at nothing to reclaim her sister's role in the prophecy, and that's not the only thing she wants: There's also Lia's boyfriend James.

Lia and Alice always knew the Prophecy would turn those closest to them against them. But they didn't know what betrayal could lead them to do. In the end, only one sister will be left standing.

Okay this was unfortunate. I really loved the first in this series. I was totally drawn in by the mystery and wanted to continue so badly to get a better understanding of the prophecy. So when I got my hands on this book it was an immediate read. Where would they find these keys, did they have them all? Could they eventually defeat Alice who was so determined to be the evil incarnate she was meant to be even if it's completely contradictory to her destined role.
There was so much potential and then...cue the disappointment. This entire book feels like a filler. After everything that was going on in the last book I was expecting more action, and discovery. Instead, it was mostly just Lia and her crew just hanging out together, talking about things.
If you found the first book in the series boring, I wouldn't even recommend attempting this one. It was slow, and it was painfully slow. I actually didn't even bother buying the third book yet, which is so unlike me. It was okay, but it wasn't what I wanted from it. Maybe the first book has more of that action that I was expecting? It's just unfortunate that this one sort of put me off the series.
