Title: The Head of Medusa
Author: Michelle Madow
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date: June 29, 2016
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book from the author for review.
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.
To be 100% honest, this review may very well read more like a gushy recommendation of the entire series. This is the third book in the series, and I hate spoiling people, so you’re just going to have to trust me when I say you need to pick up this series right now and read it!
Like the first two books in this series, The Head of Medusa is a fast paced adventure ride. Michelle Madow is extremely talented when it comes to setting the pace for a story and keeping readers turning pages. In this particular installment of the Elementals series, we certainly get to see more romance. The romance subplot now moves to be a bit more front and center, which I didn’t mind because I’m a total sucker for romance. Give me something to ship, and I’ll ship it. However, The Head of Medusa certainly isn’t just romance. Ohhhh nooo. Be prepared for some crazy twists and turns and…yes, a cliffhanger. Seriously, I’m still stressed out over it.
All in all, The Head of Medusa is yet another five star addition to an awesome series. If you haven’t picked it up yet, I highly recommend it!
