I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

GoodReads Synopsis:
Time is running out. War will be waged. Sacrifices will be made.
Months ago, Nicole Cassidy’s life was turned upside-down when she discovered that she was a witch descended from the Greek gods. She and the four other witches gifted with elemental powers fought all over the world—and in another dimension—to battle the supporters of the Titans and fight for the people they love.
Now the Elementals must stop Typhon—the most dangerous monster in the world—from rising, and seal the portal to the dangerous prison world of Kerberos. But they won’t be able to do that without facing their hardest decision yet… a sacrifice so great that it may be one they’re not willing to make.
Get ready for the stunning, action-packed conclusion to the bestselling Elementals series, with twists and turns that you’ll never see coming!
Man oh man. I cannot believe we're finally at the end of this series! It's been such an amazing ride and it seems like I just started The Prophecy of Shadows not long ago. I have enjoyed the Elementals series very much and though the story rounded out nicely, I'm sad to see it go.

So for starters, let me say that this cover is my absolute favorite of the entire series. I love the greenery and the natural elements to it. The only thing I was a bit confused about is which character the girl on the cover is supposed to be. So far, each character has been represented on the cover of each book, with corresponding colors representing the element that they have control over. Kate is in control of the earth element and she hasn't been on a cover yet, so it makes sense that The Hands of Time cover would represent her. The cover model looks strikingly similar to the cover model for The Prophecy of Shadows (in my opinion) so it had me a little confused. Maybe I'm just reading too much into a cover. That's very much a possibility as well. :P Still my favorite cover though.

The Hands of Time was definitely a fast paced book that covered a lot of ground. I'm not sure on the sizes of the other books, but I wouldn't be surprised if this one was much larger. There was so much that happened in this story, from trips to the Underworld, battling monsters, losing some beloved characters, and much much more. This book definitely took the reader on an adventurous ride. Filled to the brim with greek mythology, the book was one twist and turn after another and I couldn't get enough. Michelle Madow has done a great job with this series and has created such an amazing world where the reader never quite knows what's going to happen next.

The Hands of Time was a great conclusion to a great series and I definitely recommend it to fans of Percy Jackson!
