Series: Prophecy of the Sisters #3
Source: Review copy

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.

Circle of Fire is an awesome read and a brilliant end to a series I have enjoyed thoroughly.

I liked several things about this book.

Firstly Lia continues to be an awesome character to follow. I love how she balances both doing what she thinks is right and proper against doing what she has to do. For example I love how she wears riding trousers even though it is considered to be wild and how she has a young man in her bedchamber to watch her sleep and keep her safe even though the servants will talk. I love how she is always determined to fight against the prophecy even though the odd are stacked against her.

I love Dimitri and his never ending devotion to Lia and his general gorgeousness. I do still feel for James and was stunned at the decisions he made once Lia left but I do think Lia has a worthy replacement in Dimtri.

Alice is still her evil self from the start of the book. I have spent most of this series hoping that her and Lia would have some kind of major showdown and I think what they book did with her in end was awesome.

I'm not one for books that are slow but in this series it works. I love how the story goes along quite nicely at a steady pace and think it is quite in keeping with the time period it is set in. I love getting immersed in the history of the book as I think you get a real sense of period and feel for the time it is set in

I loved the ending of this book. With some series I can be left a little disappointed at the end but that was certainly not the case with this book. The end was jaw droppingly awesome and tied up all the various strands that had been weaved throughout the book. I don't think it could have ended better in all honestly.

All in all a fantastic end to the series which was awesome.
