Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Pages:  350

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy — a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why—especially since I should have been the one who died. . .


I loved the book.  I mean really, does anyone ever think of writing about mythical monsters and warriors?  Jennifer is a genius!  This book has everything for fantasy readers: warriors, battle, and Romance with a capital R.  With another warning of spoilers I give you the rest of the review.

A mad Valkyrie who tries to sacrifice her best friend, a goddess who’s crazy enough to make Gwen her champion, and a Hot Spartan Warrior who’s hiding a dark, dark secret.  Really dude, I feel sorry for you, when Gwen wants to find a secret, she rips through minds just to get it.  And most of all let us never forget the talking sword, Vic.  Love you dear, but you’re kind of a snooze.

I thought that this book had me asking a lot of questions at the end.  Like what’s the Ashton family going to do to Gwen, what did Grandma Frost see in Gwen’s future, and most of all, what’s the secret that Logan hides.  But I suppose that it’ll be answered in the next book, Kiss of Frost.  I got the book read through it all in one sitting.  It was that good!  I’ll be following the series until they finish…5 stars and shooting higher!
