Touch of Frost Review

Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

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. . .

My Review:

Okay, a mystery with a Greek God, or should I say Goddess, twist is definitely my cup of tea. The idea that all of these descendents from the gods, Spartans, etc. could be in one place is amazing in itself, but having them as wild, moody teenagers is so much better!

Gwen Frost is a sarcastic good girl with a heart of gold. When everyone gave up and left a student's murder go unappreciated, she made it her personal duty to stand up and find the killer. I really liked that she was a character who didn't lie down and take "No" for an answer. She also wasn't one to sob out her problems like some YA characters. But even though she wasn't a vulnerable girl, she was still totally approachable.

The swoon-worthy Logan Quinn is a Spartan hotty that will melt your socks off. (Just thinking about him gives me shivers.) He's extremely mysterious, which I think is appropriate for this mystery, and he can kick butt like nobody's business! I really hope to see a lot more of him in the next book because there wasn't a whole lot of him in this one, just enough to make me want so much more!

All in all this book is a definite must-read for any fan of Greek gods, 300, or gypsies.

5/5 stars
