Dark Frost Review

336 pages

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.

I have to say that this series has improved immensely from the first book in the series. There is a lot less repetition and Gwen has really grown on me as a character. Gwen is a strong person who sometimes misses the obvious despite her psychometry magic. I like that Gwen knows she's not the best fighter but fights anyway. However, I was sometimes annoyed with Gwen ignoring things that seemed so clear to me as the reader. It was interesting to watch Gwen's relationship with Logan go back and forth. The dynamics between them were extremely intense. Gwen has a lot to learn in this novel and it helps her to grow and change for the better. A lot of familiar characters are back in this book as well as some new ones. A lot more is explained in this story that helps you to understand some of the other characters better. This book just starts in on the action from the first few pages and does not stop. There is a lot of fighting as the Reapers try to free Loki and create general chaos. This book ends on a definite high note that has me anticipating the next novel in the series. I would recommend this novel especially if you have first read the other two in the series.
