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. This stunning conclusion to Michelle Zink's Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy will make saying good-bye bittersweet for readers. - Good Reads
I LOVED THIS! Aaaaahhhhhhh!

Michelle Zink nailed the ending to this trilogy. Her writing is as  beautiful as ever and the characters are wonderful, just wonderful!

I loved seeing Lia come into her own throughout this trilogy. She has grown an incredible amount throughout the books and by Circle of Fire she's a woman. She has faults and you see her overcome them; most of all her ability to trust in others and deal with herself. 

I love getting to know Alice better and seeing her side of the story and we're given a much clearer picture of where she's coming from and who she is.

Dimitri. Pure sexiness. I liked his addition in the previous book, but in this book I loved it. He's so swoon worthy! He respects Lia and he LISTENS to her. He doesn't try to be the boss. He's there for her without telling her what she has to do. Now that alone makes me love him! Nothing is worse to me than the love interest growling and scowling because the heroine isn't doing exactly what he wants her to do. By the way, I don't think growling or scowling is even mentioned in this book. Thumbs up for that!

The romance throughout the book is just the right amount for me. It's consistent without being overplayed and it stirs the emotions. There are some sexual scenes in this book; I found them gratifying (!!!!!!!!!!!!)... I could see that others may not enjoy that though. 

Overall, just a perfect ending and an exciting read. I laughed, I cried. In fact I think I was almost on the verge of bawling towards the end. Henry! Such a sensitive subject for me!

Circle of Fire was totally worth $9.99. Or in my case 900 swagbucks that I saved up to convert into two $5 amazon giftcards! READ THIS, READ THIS, READ THIS!
