Filled with magic, thrilling adventure, and sweet romance, Elementals is the first in a new series that fans of mythology 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 over the elements. 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.

“This has to be a joke. After all, an owl hadn't dropped a letter down my fireplace to let me know I'd been accepted into a special school, and I certainly hadn't taken an enchanted train to get to Kinsley High.”


Greek Mythology. Witchcraft. Those are my two favorite genres, somehow I got a feeling that THE PROPHECY OF SHADOWS was going be an amazing book, even before I started it. Actually what hooked me in was the summary and I knew that I had to check it out. I have read novels about witches and Greek mythology but THE PROPHECY OF SHADOWS wasn’t anything like what I read before, it was a mix of both and it was unique. Witches and Gods, tell me how a book like that is not appealing to you? I couldn’t get enough of the characters, the story and I wanted to see what adventures Nicole and her friends will have to face next. After an ending like that, I am not sure if I can wait for the next book for that long. I felt like only after few chapters in, that all of those characters became real to me, like my friends. Despite this being a fantasy book, to me it was real.

The Elementals: I love the name that they came up with, it fits them well, especially since each one of them deals with one element. I loved Kate, Nicole and Blake the most though I did have sort hate/love relationship with Blake at first. Even though I tried not to like Danielle, after certain time I couldn’t. She grew on me and after all she is part of the team. I could see how all of them changed from the start of the book, to the end. Despite what happened, how hard it was and any issues that they might had with one another, they made it through because they worked as the team. How can you not love someone like that? I have a group of friends that in a way reminds me of them. Of course now I am eager to see what happens with each of them next, what challenges will they come across next.

MICHELLE MADOW wrote another astonished series. Beautifully written novel, filled with magic, love, adventure, mystery. I couldn’t force myself put this book down and there were few times where I found myself reading late into night. I had to find what was going to happen with Nicole next. I don’t think I can describe how much I loved this novel. However if I was given choice to read it again, I would. I feel that’s what’s going to happen before the next book comes out; I will be re-reading this one once again. I am of course curious if anything is going to happen between Blake & Nicole. I could tell that there was something between two of them but I liked that Nicole didn’t let anything else happened, not till he ended with Danielle and not just because of that. I loved how strong Nicole was despite finding out about it, in such short notice.

Do you love books about witches? Mythology? Then check out THE PROPHECY OF SHADOWS an astonishing twist to both genres. A series that will have you craving for more.
