Book Review of The Head of Medusa by Michelle Madow

The Head of Medusa (Elementals #3) by Michelle Madow
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy/Mythology)
Date Published: June 29, 2016
Publisher: Dreamscape Publishing

The 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. 

The Head of Medusa is the third book in the Elementals series by Michelle Madow. This one seemed like a connector book between book two and book four. There wasn't as much action, it seemed a bit incomplete, and there was a touch of predictability. I have to say I was a little disappointed. But, I still love the mythology, the characters, and how the author weaves it all into an entertaining story. I feel invested in these characters, and that's what matters. I think there are some big things about to happen in the next book, and with that cliff hanger? I'm ready to find out what!

The ARC The Head of Medusa by Michelle Madow was kindly provided to me by Barclay Publicity for review. The opinions are my own.

“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.”
