Waiting on Wednesday : Guardian of the Gate

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Guardian of the Gate (Prophecy of the Sisters #2)
by Michelle Zink

release date: August 1st
by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

I am so excited for the second in this series. You can see my review of the first book here. It seems this new cover has just been revealed---I looked this one up just a few days ago and it wasn't there so that is my assumption. I do have to admit, I'm not horribly fond of this cover. It WON'T stop me from grabbing this book in the least, but I really loved the style of the cover of Prophecy of the Sisters, beautiful and gothic,... and was hoping it would be something along the same line. Besides that, I really love when I can buy a whole set of books and they actually look like a set when they are perched lovingly on my bookshelves! But, like I said, I'll still be hitting the bookstore on Aug 1st and snatching this off the shelves!

Description from
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.


  1. Oh that does sound good. Sister love or lack there of...I know it well.

  2. I *loved* the first book in this series, so I definitely can't wait for this one.

    I'm not sure about the cover. I think it's really nice but I do prefer it when my series books match. I'm picky like that. Still, August 1st isn't too long to wait!

  3. I haven't read the first book yet but this does sound really really good. It is too bad that the covers don't match. Great pick though.

    Here is my WoW pick.

  4. I still have yet to read the first one :( But I want to someday. Love the cover!!

  5. There will probably be a new cover for the first book too.

  6. I'm looking forward to this one too!
