The Prophecy of Shadows by Michelle Madow
genre: urban fantasy
Witches are real. They’re descendants of the Greek gods.
Nicole Cassidy is a witch descended from the Greek gods… but she doesn’t know it until she moves to a new town and discovers a dangerous world of magic and monsters that she never knew existed.
When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole and four others — including mysterious bad-boy Blake — are gifted with elemental powers. But the comet has another effect — it opens the portal to another dimension that has imprisoned the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes, it’s up to Nicole and the others to follow a cryptic prophecy in time to save the town… and possibly the world.
Although cliche at first, the book was generally great. I loved the use of Greek mythology and how it was incorporated. The worldbuilding was great and the universe felt like a crossover between Percy Jacks0n and Air Awakens, but in a good way. I also loved the friendship and I look forward to see how the story continues.
