Release Date: November 29, 2011
Rating: 5 stars
Logan Quinn was trying to kill me. My Spartan classmate relentlessly pursued me, swinging his sword at me over and over again, the shining silver blade inching closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes practically glowed with the thrill of battle…
I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Academy, and I have no idea how I’m going to survive the rest of the semester. One day, I’m getting schooled in swordplay by the guy who broke my heart — the drop-dead gorgeous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invisible archer in the Library of Antiquities decides to use me for target practice. And now, I find out that someone at the academy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword — with Logan’s help — I just might die by the sword …
The Mythos Academy series is seriously about my new favorite thing ever! I was blown away by book 1, and Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep was just as brilliant. The action builds, the characters develop more, and the story just gets better and better!
I don’t think I could criticize Kiss of Frost one bit. With Touch of Frost, my one issue was I wish the mythology of some of the different people and the types of warriors was explained a bit more upfront. From that book and the entirety of this one, I feel like everything has been perfectly explained.
The characters are wonderful. I super love Logan. No matter what he does he is just wonderful. Kiss of Frost introduces a lot more characters, and they are all a bunch of fun. Gwen develops a lot more in this book, as she is becoming more and more comfortable at Mythos and I really liked Gwen in this book. Vic is another great character, especially since he’s so unique.
I love the plot, it is not easy to peg down who is behind what. I have my suspicions, but they’re constantly changing as to who I suspect so it’s a ton of fun. The action in this one is intense!
The ending is so cruel. The book just builds and builds, up to this massively awesome high point, and the book ends. I turned the page, and there was nothing. I am SO excited for Dark Frost now though! I am quite literally counting down the days.
Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep is a must read. The series is just marvelous, and I love all the different elements it contains. Nothing is ever the same, and I love the mythology. I really need to make a point to read the rest of Jennifer Estep‘s books one of these days!
