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.
DARK FROST is another exciting and fast-paced installment in Estep’s Mythos Academy series. This series is unique in that it is light-hearted and heavy at the same time, which I absolutely love. It isn’t too cheesy, and at the same time it doesn’t leave me feeling depressed. Full of myth and magic, DARK FROST is sure to please lovers of this awesome book series!
Gwen is back in DARK FROST and more determined than ever to avenge the wrongs of the Reapers and prevent them from unleashing the evil trickster god Loki. Gwen wouldn’t survive this journey without the help of her friends Daphne, Carson, and Logan. All three bring different elements to the story that add to the world and enhance the enjoyment of the story. All the characters go through their fair share of challenges in DARK FROST and the events in DARK FROST will have a long-lasting impact on them all.
My favorite part about the Mythos Academy series is all of the lore. It brings together different mythology’s and since I’m fascinated with them all, I love it! Props to Estep for being able to keep them all in order and keeping the details in check. I can’t wait to learn more in the future installments!
DARK FROST is another fabulous installment in this fascinating series. The events that happen in this one definitely change things for everyone in the story and I can’t wait to find out the results of it all. Why can’t it be January already?
