Book: The Prophecy of Shadows
Author: Michelle Madow
Series: The Elementals
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing
Genre: Young Adult Fiction – Mythology/Magic/Paranormal
The first book was good, well written. At times the pace is slow, and there is 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 was 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.
