Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Head of Medusa (Elementals #3) by Michelle Madow
The Head of Medusa Elementals #3 By: Michelle Madow Release Date: June 29, 2016 Publisher: Dreamscape Add to Goodreads GR's Summary: 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.
Suspense, action, and adventure heat up when the Elementals learn that they must keep the powerful Titan, Typhon, from reuniting his body with his soul. The plan is as follows, behead Medusa, and use the curse to turn the Titan to stone. However, first, the Elementals must find and acquire the Golden Sword of Athena to penetrate Medusa's hard-as-a-diamond head. The sword is protected by ice nymphs and the snow goddess Chione in her ice palace located in Antarctica.
I love the unique personalities and gifts of the Elementals. Their magical abilities have come a long way and it was fun seeing Nicole use her skill with spirit, Blake with fire, Danielle with water, Chris with air, and Kate with earth. When these four get together, there is always fun, laughs, danger, thrills, and suspense. What a wild ride!
In this segment, we also have more romance than was in the previous books. That is a huge bonus in my eyes. Blake and Nicole are officially a couple, and I loved how enamored they are with one another. These two were meant to be, and the way Blake treats Nicole makes my heart melt. There were major twists in this segment, and the ending was an epic cliffhanger! Wow, what an exciting and nail biting ending. This segment is my favorite in the series so far. It had more excitement, angst, anguish, danger, and romance. I loved every moment of it, and the fact that the story was such a wonderful reading escape, that flew by!
I give, The Head of Medusa, Elementals #3, by Michelle Madow, 4.5 Fast, fun, phenomenal, and magical stars! This is a great series for teens and the young at heart alike. If you enjoy Greek Mythology, the Elementals is a must read!

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.”
