Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Format: eBook and paperback
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.

There was so much to like about this book, as a big fan of the witchery and the mythology, I was drawn to the synopsis and signed up for the tour. I actually found this to lean slightly closer to middle grade than young adult, which I don’t have a problem with I just thought others might like to know that this is definitely not considered to be for a mature audience only. The beginning did not hook me however, I stuck with it and was handsomely rewarded with an intricately woven pattern play between the gods and mortals, and *spoiler not shown.* I loved that we did get right into the thick of things rather quickly, though there were times the story seemed “stuck” I felt it was overall quickly paced and good for an afternoon read should you be so lucky to have the time for such things. (I am not, a good day for me includes an hour of reading time.) I’d recommend this to fantasy readers around 12 and up, especially those who like a bit of mischief with their magic and mythology!
