Nicole Cassidy is a witch descended from the Greek gods...but she doesn't know it until she moves to a new town and discovers a dangerous world of magic and monsters that she never knew existed. When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in 3,000 years, Nicole and four others - including mysterious bad-boy Blake - are gifted with elemental powers. But the comet has another effect - it opens the portal to another dimension that has imprisoned the Titans for centuries.

This was a good story. If you enjoy mythology, magic and teen anxieties it’s for you. It’s not an award winning, movie making book. However, I did really enjoy the plot, characters, and narration. The biggest issue for me was that the main character recapped the same information over and over. It really slowed the plot. This set really is one complete book. Where one book starts and ends is awkward like shes trying to create suspense but it doesn’t work. It’s better to hear it straight through.

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.
