I received this ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Summary:

I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.

Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.

Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am.

Review:

This is the last book in this series and I’m sad to say goodbye to Gwen and her adventures as Nike Champion. After all the dangerous situations and the drama around her personal life we can see that Gwen has grown a lot and found some way to survive and try to save the world. She’s the only one with the power to kill Loki and make sure he doesn’t destroy the world, but she has no idea how to do it, sure she has friends willing to help and the artifacts other Gods created that could help in the battle.

I loved this story, it’s full of action and Gwen of course had to save the world. I liked this last book and the final battle. Vivian was such a terrible girl and after all the talking she demonstrated that in the end Loki chose the right person to lead his army. I loved the characters and how we got caught up in the battle. Metis and Nickamedis helped a lot. But Logan was perfect in this book, we saw these two growing apart but now in the times of danger, he always comes to the rescue. Loved the story and I’m not saying spoilers, so this review will be short.

Young Adult Review: Midnight Frost by Jennifer Estep

Midnight Frost (Mythos Academy, #5)

Here we go again …
Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.
As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …

Another Mythos book and more adventures and drama are heading to Gwen, but this time one thing I did not liked was the fact her grandmother is hiding some secrets until today, because come on Gwen life could depend on those things and pretty much everyone knows except her. Strange right, but now she knows her father was from a very dangerous family and once he wasn’’t such a good guy. Come one he was a Reaper. Me think the girl needs a few more lessons on family history.
 
But the book is not just about Gwen finding her family hoots. Now like always the Reapers are after her and for once Gwen discovered before the attack, but couldn’t alert Nickamedes and he was a casualty. But Gwen also discovered a way to save him, so off the troop went to find the secret ingredient. Am I the only one thinking that’s a trap? Apparently not because the group decided to try and even Logan returned.
 
Gwen being her usual self saved a few people on the way and now she just needs to save Nickamedes. Not everything is completely easy, but I liked the twists and turns this book provided. And Logan is back!!

Young Adult Review: Spartan Frost by Jennifer Estep

Spartan Frost (Mythos Academy, #4.5)

I’m Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was — until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.
Professor Metis and Nickamedes say that I’m fine, that Loki and the Reapers don’t have a hold on me anymore, but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk hurting Gwen again. So I’m leaving Mythos and going somewhere far, far away.
I know Gwen wonders what’s happening to me, whether I’m safe. I can’t tell her, but this is my story …

I love Gwen and this book is almost perfect. I have a few issues with this cover and if you’re following this series, we both now this is so not a guy. But anyway I missed Gwen in this little novella and it’s actually funny, but I never hated Logan, even after everything he did in the last book, I’m not saying what!!
 
Logan is actually perfect, because he never knows about anything and he was clearly betrayed, so more pity and that is exactly what he’s running from. He is in love with Gwen but after the way he acted and how much he was hurt her, it’s actually understandable seeing him trying to put some distance between them, but I liked knowing his doubts and he’s clearly trying to get back on his feet.
 
So this was a nice little insight to Logan POV and I liked seeing him torn about Gwen.

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.

I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.

I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…

Photobucket

There’s a great part of me that just loves this series and I don’t know if it’s because of Gwen or the mythology, but each new book brings a new world full of mysteries to be solved and of course a battle to save the world.
I’m always expecting Gwen to save everyone and try for once to have a normal day without all this crazy attacks for the reapers. Some people might think it’s selfish of her to just want a normal outing with her new boo, but she’s just a teenager fighting the evil and trying to survive another day.
This book was different than the others, but mostly because now Loki is free and Gwen must discover what to do and actually kill him, not the simplest fact of them all. But I loved this book just as much as the others and there’s not a bad thing I could tell about it.
I don’t want to spoiler everyone, but Gwen is fighting with people’s thought and frustrated trying to discover Loki’s steps to control the world again. Not much!

Review: Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.
Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?
It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.

Things are getting more dangerous than ever in Mythos Academy and now Gwen must find an artifact her mother hide. An again it’s the only way to save the humanity from Loki, problem is she has no idea where it is and Loki’s champion is also looking and it’s probably inside the school.
 
Gwen’s life is not easy and Logan is almost her boyfriend, because now she has reasons to stay away from him. Reapers are popping up from everywhere and nobody is save, but Gwen is improving in her abilities and also learning how to fight better. Double yay.
 
But the book is all about action and death happens, but this one was really good for the series. It explained a lot about Gwen’s family and also helped understand a bit more of this war.
 
Can’t wait for the next because now the bad guy is out of the cage and Gwen is trying to save herself.

Summary

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…
My Thoughts
I think I finished this book faster than the first two. It was so great and the story was really evolving. Plus there are some parts that I can’t help but laugh. Gwen is growing up and now she has more friends than ever.
Gwen is now learning everything she can on how to fight. Logan is her tutor and that brought two new characters to the story. Oliver and Kenzie are both Spartans and great friends of Logan. At first they were just like all the other posh students making fun of Gwen, but once I discovered why they act that way it really good to understand more from them and they became allies, not going to say friends because it’s over the top.
Gwen and Logan relationship is worst than ever because now he’s dating Savannah and they are kissing every single minute Gwen looks at him. It’s horrible how he treats her just to hide a secret. But once the danger is greater that ever he actually helps and things became really steamy between these two.
Daphne is still crazy in love and her dating with Carson continues pretty good. It was fun to see how much she became more friendly and dangerous. She’s always helping Gwen plus she’s a Valkyrie and super strong, but on this book she was just a friend and didn’t got involved in the battle.
The book had more battles than the first and we got to see how difficult Gwen’s life will be now that she accepted her destiny and became a Champion. And after she got involved in Jasmine Ashton dead and discovered the whole family is on Loki’s side. Danger comes from everywhere and the academy is not that save anymore.

Quote

“Two students severely injured, you yourself covered in blood, a Reaper on the premises, a Fenrir wolf running around loose somewhere, and extensive property damage to the resort. Well?" Nickamedes snapped. "What do you have to say for yourself, Gwendolyn?"

I thought for a second, then grinned at him. "I followed your directions exactly. I never set one foot outside the hotel.”

Summary

I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift.  It’s called psychometry – that’s a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people’s memories off almost everything I touch, even guys.

 

My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy–to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don’t want to know the secrets my friend Paige is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school – Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren’t preparing us for the SATs, but to battle Reapers of Chaos.  Now I have no friends and no idea how my gift fits in with all these warrior whiz kids.  The only thing I do know is that my life is never, ever going to be the same.  .  .

My Thoughts
This was another prequel, but I decided to read it after the first book because I usually get really confuse. They don’t explain much of the story and are short. But this one was different.
During the first book Gwen mentioned in passing what happened after gym in her old school and the prequel show us exactly this. What vibes se get and the memories she can extract from the hair brush that Paige let her borrow.
There’s also a visit to Mythos and Gwen first encounter with Logan. I don’t liked the way her grandmother just shipped her o school like it was a done deal. But I enjoyedd to know what happened before school started.
