Publisher’s DescriptionThe epic story of witches, gods, and monsters that USA Today called a “must read” continues in the third book of the Elementals series!

When Nicole Cassidy moved to a new town, she discovered that she was a witch descended from gods. But that was nothing compared to learning that it was up to her and four others with mysterious elemental powers to help save the world from the Titans, who would soon return to Earth.

Now her relationship with Blake — the fire Elemental — is finally heating up. But she must remain focused, because Typhon, one of the deadliest creatures in history, has escaped from the weakening prison world. Only one object can destroy him — the head of Medusa herself.

Follow the Elementals as they journey to the end of the Earth, facing choices that will put their lives and the entire world at risk. Will they all survive the mission? Find out in the riveting third book in the Elementals series, The Head of Medusa.

Excerpt:

“What we’re about to do is scary. Terrifying, even. But we’ve been through things that were just as challenging. We slayed our first monster together in that cave, we escaped the Land of the Lotus Eaters when everyone there was trying to kill us, we blew up one of Scylla’s heads, we slayed the hydra, and we stole the Golden Sword of Athena from a goddess’s ice palace. No matter what challenges we face, we’ve always come out on top. Tonight won’t be any different. We’re the Elementals. We train together, we fight together, and we win together. And don’t any of you ever forget it.”

Possible spoilers beyond this point.


Luna_Lovebooks_100Luna Lovebooks says…

Likes: First of all I love (LOVE) mythology/folk tales/fairy tales! I even love retellings. This novel is filled with myth mixed into our everyday lives. I love what Madow did with Medusa and her garden! I also liked the fact that – even though I wouldn’t recommend it – this book can be read as a stand-alone. There is enough detail to make sure you are not completely lost, but not enough to give the other books away. I also loved that this book was super fast paced. I probably could have finished it in a day if I weren’t busy! There were a few twists that I didn’t see coming!

badge4v4Dislikes: There were a few small mechanical errors such as a wrong word used here or there, but it’s not enough to pull you out of the story. It focused a lot on relationships more than actually finding a way to complete their mission of keeping the portal to Kerberos from breaking down completely and unleashing monsters on earth. Even though there were a few twists that I didn’t see coming, it was blatantly obvious that Ethan was going to turn on the group once he joined them.

Overall I give this book 4 stars.

If you like this book…

…you might try Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan, The Mortal Enchantment Series by Stacey O’Neale, and Michelle Madow’s other works: Transcend Time Saga and The Secret Diamond Sisters series.
