Touch of Frost Review

350 pages

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy — a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why—especially since I should have been the one who died. . .

After reading this book I definitely have a love/hate relationship with it. I love mythology so I also love books based on ancient mythology. This book definitely had a lot of potential. Its not a bad book but I can't say it was exceptional either. Gwen Frost is a likable character when she's not pitying herself or repeating the same annoying phrases often. If I had to read "Logan freaking Quinn" one more time I probably would have stopped reading out of frustration. There seems to be a lot and I do mean a lot of repetition in this book. However, I do like the concept and the underlying story in the book. There is quite a bit of action, a hot guy, and magic which always makes me happy. I think that Gwen as a character still has some growing to do that I'm hoping to discover in the next novel in this series. I recommend this book for a quick read if you like mythology and magic.
