The Lovereading4Kids comment

Often the 2nd in a series is the weaker, but Julia Golding has surpassed herself here by delivering a totally gripping novel where once again good versus evil is the underlying theme but Connie has to get the better of a shapeshifter as well as someone who can kill just by looking.

Awesome stuff with an ecological twist and completely unputdownable. To read them in order start with Secrets of the Sirens, then Gorgons Gaze and follow that with Mines of the Minotaur. Be sure to check out the latest new title in the series The Chimera's Curse: Companion's Quartet: Bk. 4.

Synopsis

Gorgon's Gaze, Companions Quartet by Julia Golding

Magical Mallins Wood is under threat from developers. Unknown to everyone but the members of the top secret Society for the Protection of Mythical Creatures, the wood is the home of the last gorgon, a creature so deadly she can kill with a look. Col's difficult mother is the gorgon's Companion - and she's determined to save it.
