Review:
*The author provided this book in exchange for an honest review.*
When she moved to a new town, Nicole Cassidy discovered she was a witch descended from the gods. But that was a drop of water compared to the ocean that was learning that it was up to her and four other witches with elemental powers to help save the world from the Titans, who are trying to return to Earth and close to succeeding.
She and Blake, the fire elemental, have finally started to work on their relationship but their plans are interrupted by news that Typhon, one of the deadliest creatures ever known, has escaped from his weakening prison world. There's only one way to stop him: to destroy him. The problem is that the only thin that can destroy him is the head of Medusa herself.
For starters I have to highlight the amazing character development in this book, it's utterly amazing and I also keep loving the way the author crosses real life elements with mythical aspects in a weave so tight that creates another dimension altogether.
I think the story has a very very rich plotline and it makes me want to keep reading, I actually read this book in one sitting. Also, I love the way that Nicole isn't the solution for everything, she's important but her role only complements the roles of the other elementals, it doesn't make her more important and she has flaws and has to face difficult decisions which make her, and the others, feel real and palpable. In my head, they're not an abstract concept.
I advise this book to anyone who likes stories about teamwork and myths and, even if you don't, you should give it a try.
