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.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
The Prophecy of Shadows starts with Nicole as she spends her first day at a new school. There is obviously the instant attraction bad-boy, the shy friend, and the Queen Bee. To be honest, I thought this was going to be an 'okay' book, but nothing spectacular. I was wrong! It's that simple.
The characters are all well-rounded, with their own strengths and flaws. I even liked Danielle, although I also liked to dislike her! With a flowing pace, this book never stumbles, but takes you forward with every page. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and even dreamt of it, which is a winner in my book.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, and can't wait for the next in the series. Definitely recommended.
