Kiss of Frost Review

354 pages
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..

Once again I'm disappointed. It was such a chore to read a repeat of the first novel in the series. So many things were just repeated over and over again it was annoying. Gwen did not improve as a character either. She is so self-pitying and desperate for attention that its depressing. And the Reaper was extremely obvious to figure out without thought. The only thing that saves this novel, barely, is Gwen's romance with Logan. I wanted to see Gwen get the guy but her insecurities made it hard to enjoy. The last part of the book was more fast paced with a lot of new information that was revealed. That peaked a little of my interest in what the next novel may be about. This series isn't terrible but for someone who has read as much books as I have it may be a bit tedious. I don't want to recommend reading this unless you just have some time to kill.
