Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Gwen and friends are back in this second installment of the Mythos Academy series. As the students of Mythos head off to Powder, a winter ski resort, for the Winter Carnival, Gwen is afraid another Reaper may be on her trail . After several attempts on her life, Gwen is more concerned with staying alive than hitting the slopes, and Vic--he just wants blood. Can Gwen find out who may be trying to kill her before they succeed?
I love how fast paced these novels are. This is the second installment in the Mythos Academy series, and it starts out with plenty of action, and doesn’t let up until you turn the last page. In many ways this book is better than the first because the author could step right into the story, without a lot of world building.
I really enjoyed the setting for this novel. Taking us off campus to a winter ski resort was a fantastic twist. We got to see the Mythos students having fun, kicking back, and partying. This novel also had some very nice meat to it that progressed Gwen’s story well.
I love the action, I love the characters, and I love the mythology. This novel leads to some important revelations, and Gwen developing new abilities. Gwen’s character progressed and developed through this story, and it is nice to see those changes. After turning the last page there was only one thing I could regret--that I have to wait until May for the next installment Dark Frost. That is going to be one very long wait. I can’t wait to see what happens to Gwen and friends next!
Overall, this is a fun series that I will continue to read and recommend to teens looking for more action packed paranormal mysteries. I can’t wait for the next installment.
