Review: The Prophecy of Shadows by Michelle Madow

The Prophecy of Shadows by Michelle Madow
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

 Witches are real. They're descendants of the Olympian gods. And now, five teen witches gifted with elemental powers must fight to stop a war against the Titans.

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.


I do not know if this book was terrible or I am just getting too old for YA. I did not finish it I could not stand the writing, so immature this book seems to be for 12 years old little girls. I love YA , that is what I read the most, but this was not for me.

This girl moved to another city and in her new school she went only to classes for witches that are descendants of the Greek Gods, right? She did not know she was a witch. She went to the class without knowing that, but someone enrolled her in the witch classes and she didn't know how she ended up there. Since I did not finish the book, I was thinking that maybe her real father enrolled her at the witch classes. A father that, of course, she never knew.

I did not care about the love relationship, did not care about the character. I did not care about anyone or anything that happened in this book.

The power of the witches was based on energy and the energy was different colors, depending on what it was used for. I was tired of reading about rainbow energy power thing. I got tired of reading the colors and the word "energy" all the time.

I did not like it.
