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 elemental 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.


Looking for a mix of Greek mythology and witches? This book scratches that itch. Nicole is seemingly no different, but hey she is the main character here, she can't be just ordinary. Is she just another witch, suddenly thrust into a new school and awakened to her magic. Or will she be something more?

I am so thankful to Michelle Meadow for being at Supercon 2016, she was a delight to talk too and I can not thank her enough for all the books! I am sorry it took me this long, but it was so worth it. I really enjoyed Elementals!!

There is a lot that makes this book fun yet, its the circle of friends that surround her; Blake, Danielle, Kate and Chris, that makes the journey so much more intricate. Teenagers, am I right? Loving it!
