Filled with magic, thrilling adventure, and sweet romance, Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows is the first in a new series that fans of Percy Jackson and The Secret Circle will love!
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.

Interview with Michelle Madow
Question 1- What inspires you most when you write?
Michelle- For me, it’s always been the readers who inspire me to write. I have all these stories inside my mind, and I write them down so that others are able to experience them—and hopefully enjoy them—too. So, thank you to my readers for being so supportive and inspiring!
Question 2- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Michelle- Professionally, I hope that I’ve written and released a few more of my series. I hope to release four books this year. So in five years, I hope that I’ve released at least 15 more books.
Personally—I have absolutely no idea. You never know when a person is going to come into your life and change everything, and I always try to keep myself open to those changes. Most importantly, I want my personal life to continue to be conducive to completing my professional goals. Everything else is just an added bonus!
Question 3- If you could work with ANY author who would you want to work with?
Michelle- That’s such a hard question because there are so many amazing authors out there! If I was picking an author I’d never met before, then probably James Patterson. I like how he credits all the authors he works with, and since he’s one of the best selling authors of all time, I would love to be able to learn from him. If I were choosing from authors I already know, then definitely Elise Kova! She’s one of my best friends—we get along so well, and she’s really encouraged me to push myself harder than I already did. Plus, I love outlining and editing, and she loves drafting, so I think we would make a great team.
Question 4- What's your favorite quote?
Michelle- I love quotes, and I collect them. Here are three of my favorites:
“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world, and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.”
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”
"If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything."
I love all your answers! And I would love to see you and Elise Kova write a book together!
I would be the happiest person on this planet!
We need to make this happen! <3
