*Book was provided by author for honest review*
At Mythos Academy, teen warriors in the making train to take up their roles protecting humankind. With her snarky, self-deprecating voice and strange gift of psychometry - the ability to know an object's history just by touching it - Gwen Frost is an outsider both to the students of the Academy and the rest of the world. But now that she's taking private tutoring with the Academy's most notorious young Spartan, and has Nike's own sword to protect her, she's ready to make mark...
What I thought
The second installment of the Mythos Academy series, Kiss of Frost was just as great a read as the first. Maybe even better. Things aren't getting any easier for Gwen as the story picks up. Full of mystery, adventure, mishaps and one major crush, I was pulled into the story fast and I was unable to put it down for anything.
I liked the setting in this. The ski lodge was fun. Throwing Gwen into situations that she didn't really want. Like, learning how to ski. Oh, and also that there is someone out to kill her. I really liked how the other schools were thrown in the mix so it was harder to try and guess just who might be after Gwen. I love the mystery and I love not being able to figure everything out.
I really do like that Gwen hadn't been brought up like the rest of the students. She's just learning her way to try and stay alive and we get experience everything with her as she learns to fight and learns just what kind of power she truly has. She’s a very strong character, but with a vulnerable side. It makes Gwen very easy to connect with. Gwen learning to really use her power in this novel was one of my favorite parts. I'm excited to learn what she can learn and develop her magic into. I really do look forward to watching Gwen's character grow.
The story in here holds promise to more and greater books to come. And maybe even a darker storyline as things develop. In a genre full of mythology references and character, Mythos Academy stands out.
