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.
When I first read the synopsis of this book, I really didn’t like it. Everything just felt so over the place. Like the author was trying to mix two different worlds into one for the sake of just making something new. However, I trusted my favorite narrator, Caitlyn Kelly, and decided to go for it. After all, there’s nothing that she narrates that won’t sound good.
And I wasn’t disappointed.
I really enjoyed this world. I’m a sucker for greek mythology, a big one at that. And right now, I’m going through a witch faze, so this was perfect. Everything felt so well balanced and intriguing.
Nicole isn’t the weak, “Oh-I’m-So-Lost-Please-Someone-Save-me” female lead. She was smart, athletic and a quick learner. She didn’t faint every five seconds or engage in a pity party. She is strong. And I loved that. Honestly, I’m just so happy that more authors are finally writing about a female lead that we can relate and look up to.
Aside from the ehm> cheating <that is. (highlight the empty space to see whats written).
Anyway, my main issue was Nicole’s constant obsession and worrying over her love life. To me, it was just way over the top. However, because of the amazing plot, I let myself move on and focus on other things.
Also, naughty boys.
Ok, I’m done now.
