Review of the Halves of Us by Sydney Paige Richardson

Twin Sisters: one destined to rule, one cursed to destroy.
Some say blood is thicker than water. But for twin sisters, Adie and Aura, their connection runs even deeper than blood.
After investigating a surprise attack carried out by dark souls controlled by the Wicked Willow, an evil  residing in a neighboring region, Aura uncovers a family secret: she is the fulfillment of a curse placed upon her family centuries ago.
While Aura is destined to destroy their planet, Thindoral, Adie is fated to follow in their mother’s footsteps and become Ruler, but even Adie’s path comes with revelations. Dangerous premonitions plague her dreams, all depicting Thindoral’s demise at the hand of her sister.
As darkness takes control of her mind, Aura must determine whether defying fate and time is the choice that will seal her destruction, or if self-sacrifice will save all she holds dear. Meanwhile, Adie is faced with an impossible decision: save her sister, or protect their world?

Adie and Aura have always been close but things start to change when the sneak into the room holding the Rokis which Aura will one day where and Adie gets a glimpse of her future. This book sucks you in from the beginning, the world they live in, the different beings that reside there as well as the regiment rules they live by fascinate as well as make you sad like the room of papers. The characters are great as you can relate to them as they are flawed as well as trying to do whats right, but boy there are times where you want to shake them and make them really think about what they are doing. There is plenty of mystery, hope, loss and twists that unfold as you see Adie and Aura become who they are meant to be and the ending, well lets just say I can’t wait to read book 2!
