Kiss of Frost Review

Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep
Logan Quinn was try­ing to kill me. My Spar­tan class­mate relent­lessly pur­sued me, swing­ing his sword at me over and over again, the shin­ing sil­ver blade inch­ing closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes prac­ti­cally glowed with the thrill of battle...

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...

My Review

I really love this series. It's fresh and funny with some butt-kicking characters thrown in.

Gwen continues to be her sarcastic, fantastic self. She's learning to fight and trying to fit in all at the same time and she makes the process she's going through to do so absolutely HIL-AR-I-OUS! Her snippy remarks make me laugh out loud constantly! It's refreshing to have a female main character with a witty side.

Logan Quinn is of course his same bada** self. He's mysterious and sexy and everything I really want in a guy. The only thing I have to complain about, which I think I mentioned in the first book's revew, is that Logan isn't given a very big appearance. I love these books for being more about the mystery, less about the romance, but if there is going to be romance, it needs to be thrown in there just a wee bit more.

The plot had one downfall, but it was still super-duper good. It seemed that the plot was a little too similar to the first book, don't get me wrong, it had it's differences, but it was a tad bit too alike. If you've read them you might understand what I'm talking about, if you haven't then you'll see what I'm talking about. :)

Even though there were a couple of things I didn't like about this book, the things that I did like totally threw the the bad stuff out the window. There's a hilarious something going on between Logan's friends, a mysterious mystery and every chapter is filled with teenage sarcasm.
This is a great series that is a must-read for every mythology or paranormal fan out there.


*I received an ARC of this book to review from the publisher. This in no way altered my opinion/review.
