The Prophecy of Shadows – The Elementals

 

Book:  The Prophecy of Shadows
Author:  Michelle Madow
Series:  The Elementals
Publisher:  Dreamscape Publishing
Genre: Young Adult Fiction – Mythology/Magic/Paranormal

My Rating:
three-stars


The first book was good, well written.  At times the pace is slow, and there are some unnecessarily written parts/repeated parts that also contributed to the slow pace.

The idea of the story is great.  I absolutely love any stories that have a mythological theme to it.  I will be reading the next book in this series, although the first book didn’t wow me, the ideas and story line is well thought out.  And I need to know where this story is going.

The character development was good, and the setting and world-building were well placed. Michelle’s writing style is interesting, I was roped into the story, and finished the book in two days.  The use of magic is different when Greek myth is added to the story, and that is definitely a unique twist to the story.

Overall, I would recommend this as a fast, easy read.  Maybe something to read when you need a break from the more thought-provoking books.


Love Always,

Creativity is my passion, and I have been told that my soul is old, and my body young... Dunno if that is true, but... Anyhoe, gonna start with book reviews, and hauls of the new books I acquire. Maybe if I am better with this blogging thing, I'll expand...
