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.
Nicole Cassidy discovers she's a witch and controls the fifth element. Along with her new friends, they will have to battle their way through a few quests and fulfill a prophecy.
Michelle Madow's writing is easy and fluid! The book was an okay read,,,not my favorite and not bad either! There were some things i liked and some things i didn't like, for example the main character, Nicole is not very likeable and sometimes quite unnatural. You find out your homeroom is a class full of witches, do you run out of the classroom, calm yourself, go back in and say "what the heck let's humour these people" and then start excelling at magic?
I loved the idea of magic stemming from colors and the way the author described using magic through colors was really unique and interesting! The plot was pretty simple, not many twists and quite predictable but not totally boring. It's an easy quick read if you're looking for a short and easy paranormal book. But i personally like mega detailed plots!
The insta-love ticked me off a little. Blake has a girlfriend and yet there is this immediate attraction with Nicole. And she's always like "oh i want him" and then "oh he has a girlfriend".
This is one of those books where you feel like you know and like the side characters better! Kate i loved! And i do feel a kind of budding romance between her and Chris! These two would be ADORABLE!
A nice quick and easy read but i don't think it's totally for me! However i'm sure many of you guys will probably enjoy it
