Publisher's Summary

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. After an ancient monster escapes, it's up to Nicole and the others to follow a cryptic prophecy in time to save the town...and possibly the world.

A thrilling fantasy adventure in a contemporary setting with Greek mythology and sweet romance, Elementals will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more!

loved it!

I read this book first and loved it. I was very excited to learn that it had been turned into an audio book. I love this book even more as an audio. It brought the story to life. I can not wait for more audio books in this series.

A life devoted to righting the wrongs.

What's wrong with adults in this book? How about some supervision! Let your students do all the hard work and risk their lives while you sit back and make rules...lol

Love the premise of this story and I'm anxious to read the next in the series. I love mythology and this series deals in the Greek mythos.

The characters are clearly defined and the story keeps the reader involved with the drama and action...not to forget the adventure and treasure hunt which keeps it moving forward.

Thank you Caitlin Kelly for lending your voice as narrator!

Amazing Audio Book

I really enjoyed listening to this book, the narrator really bought the story to life. Caitlin Kelly's voice is soothing and easy to listen to, the quality was clear with no background noises.

It is a great story, well read and I highly recommend this audio book

Good Teen Romance

I liked it, it was good, not great. The narrator did a good job with distinguishing the characters and I thought it was a good start to a series. I'm worried it might go flat after this though. It was very reminiscent of Percy Jackson's Series.

A great audiobook

I loved this audiobook. I had never heard anything narrated by Caitlin Kelly, but the combination of Michelle Madow's amazing story and her superb acting won me over.

A journey

This is about a girl who finds out she is a witch think "Sabrina the teenage witch " but with other witches. They go to their first journey ever and find out what their power mean. And that is just the beginning... The narrator did an amazing job reading the story too just like I pictured it!

Good if you like slow and predictable

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Plot and character development leave a lot to be desired. This had the potential to be a great book however the lack of development flattened the entire story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Caitlin Kelly’s performances?

I would try once more but, going in holding my breath.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

NO.

Any additional comments?

Extremely predictable. One behavior/task lead directly to the other, nothing was a surprise, nothing was making me want to stay with the story. I almost stopped about an hour in... but continued hoping it would eventually try to grab my attention.

Not enough to be a story

Seriously thin on story and the kids are the instant deus ex machina with super powers so in the un built up accumulation that suddenly came up with strife that wasn't called for and was out of place since no build up, the strife was instantly out like snuffing out a candle because they had super powers. The narration was good but too little story for the narrator. Its hard to believe it was even published. I think they were trying to capitalize on the Percy Jackson Greek Gods and teens with powers who were defended from them. It failed miserably with no real story or plot.

Good Start

Excellent introduction to the main characters. A little too much teen angst but overall it was a good story.
