#Review of The Prophecy of Shadows (Elementals #1) by @MichelleMadow #Thanks @NetGalley

Filled with magic, thrilling adventure, and sweet romance, Elementals is the first in a new series that fans of Percy Jackson and The Secret Circle will love! 

When Nicole Cassidy moves from sunny Georgia to gloomy New England, the last thing she expects is to learn that her homeroom is a cover for a secret coven of witches. Even more surprisingly … she’s apparently a witch herself. Despite doubts about her newfound abilities, Nicole is welcomed into this ancient circle of witches and is bedazzled by their powers—and, to her dismay, by Blake—the school’s notorious bad-boy.

Girls who get close to Blake wind up hurt. His girlfriend Danielle will do anything to keep them away, even if she must resort to using dark magic. But the chemistry between Blake and Nicole is undeniable, and despite wanting to protect Nicole from Danielle’s wrath, he finds it impossible to keep his distance.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole, Blake, Danielle, and two others in their homeroom are gifted with mysterious powers. But the comet has another effect—it opens the portal to the prison world that has contained the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes and attacks Nicole and Blake, it’s up to them and the others to follow the clues from a cryptic prophecy so that they can save their town … and possibly the world.

Michelle Madow grew up in Baltimore, graduated Rollins College in Orlando, and now lives in Boca Raton, Florida. She wrote her first book in her junior year of college, and has been writing novels since. Some of her favorite things are: reading, pizza, traveling, shopping, time travel, Broadway musicals, and spending time with friends and family. Michelle has toured across America to promote her books and to encourage high school students to embrace reading and writing. Someday, she hopes to travel the world for a year on a cruise ship.

This book was wonderful.  I am one of the few people who really didnt like this authors other series.  But this jump into fantasy hit it out of the park for this reader!  I loved the story about descendants from Olympus and the plot was one of a kind.  This author is in the pot of giving Percy Jackson a run for his money!  This one of course was to set up the series and it did somewhat read like a series.  But unlike others this one was also a full book and I so can't wait for the next one!  

This read was in 1 POV Nicole and she shines above all others.  She is a great character, strong by vulnerable, she was well rounded.  The other other side characters were also solidity created and fit the story well.  

There was a touch of romance in this one as well.  Very Romeo and Juliet feel.  Blake is the new go to for book boyfriends in my book!  I can't wait to see where the story takes them!  

Full of magic, fantasy, and adventure this book is sure to wow readers with its story! 

 Go Into This One Knowing 

Great start to a new series that is going to blow your mind!
