This is the second time I’ve started writing a review while reading the book. I guess I’m going through the bad-books syndrome lately which according to me is a syndrome where you intentionally read a book which you know you will want to bang against the wall or which will make you bang your head against the wall. Either way I am suffering from that. I just found out that the second book to Mythos academy was out and I just couldn’t resist. I had to make myself suffer reading this book.
Okay, Gwe...more
Stacia (out of inspiration)
Am I allowed to be happy? I feel like it's been a while since I've had the warm fuzzies about darn near anything. It was starting to make me feel like I'd broken something in my brain...until I picked up book 1 of this series, then went immediately into book 2. Skeptical Stacia has temporarily left the building in favor of Swoony Stacia. I promise that I'll be back to my regularly-scheduled, jaded-self tomorrow.

It's as if I've been on this merry-go-round of "same story, same ahole guy, same ever...more

Rating: a 'This book pisses me off way too much' zero star.


(Link: http://vampirekiki.deviantart.com/art...)

It's just another shitty YA book, another author who doesn't have the heart to write a descent story but got paid for writing craps anyway, Jennifer Estep, I'm blacklisting you.


As if the lack of originality isn't bad enough, as if ripping off Harry Potter and Vampire Academy isn't bad enough, as if all the cliches and the stupid main character aren't bad enough; Jennifer Estep just has to...more

I liked the concept, and I enjoyed the story; however, my enjoyment was marred by the writing. I felt as though the author copied and pasted entire sentences, if not paragraphs, from the first book in the series. I understand the author wanting to provide backstory for individuals who accidentally read this book first, but to provide the explanation verbatim felt like lazy writing and detracted from my overall enjoyment of the story.

I also find it hard to like the heroine. Harry Potter had four...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)

This second book really heats things up. Again, I’d figured everything out long before Gwen, but I wonder if that’s not by design of the story. But also, I’m not the target market so maybe it’s just that. Still I re...more

Angry-at-the-world girl Gwen is at it again. She hates everyone at her school because they're so good and she's not (she admits it herself). She hates that they were so good at this fighting stuff and she's a novice, never mind that they've been doing this since they started walking and she's been only at this for a year. Oh, and they SUCK because they're rich and flaunt it, never mind that her family is well-off too but her mother and grandmother decided to raise her as a normal girl. Totally n...more
Paradoxical
I've officially decided that these books are like cotton candy fluff. Terribly bad for you, but sometimes you can't help but devour it anyway. 8| Or maybe I should say deep fried twinkie. Somewhere up there, anyway.

These books take cliches and just keeps on piling it on top of one another. They're also hugely predictable, and if people claim otherwise, they are filthy liars. Gwen doesn't stop angsting about her situation (especially her situation with Logan, sigh) and she thinks that people are...more

Another reviewer said it well, "the books are entertaining, they just aren't that good." I enjoy the story and I truly love the mythology. Thankfully the author figured out that we didn't need to know the first and last names of every character every time they come up; however, there were still lots of repetitive descriptions and phrases.

Also on a sad note, Gwen was actually really dumb in this book. Once again I figured out who the villain was long before our heroine did. I want her...more

Kiss of Frost is the second book in Jennifer Estep's Mythos Academy series and it pretty much takes place only a couple weeks later from where Touch of Frost ended. I really liked Touch of Frost, but I enjoyed Kiss of Frost a lot more. I think what I like the most about this series is the relationship between Logan and Gwen. The way it plays out and how at first I want to hate Logan so much, but just can't. I love it! I also really like Gwen's powers. I know there is a down side to it, but who w...more

OMG! I. LOVED.THIS.BOOK. I mean really loved. Loved it so much that I want to bathe in the literature if I could. (You know I would too! LOL)

This book is the bomb diggity. Right from the very first page, I felt the anxiety and excitement of reading every goodness of the page. The plot was dynamic. Filled with action, fighting, major flirting, and forbidden love, I fell in love with this b...more

This is the sequel to Touch of Frost; even though this should have been rated 1 star, I’m generously giving this three. I know I said I wasn’t going to read the rest of the series, but the book has so much potential. It does. I have to admit, I kind of… you know… enjoyed it. But I thought the author left some of her old habits behind on the Touch of Frost, unfortunately she didn’t….

I really can’t stand how the author is writing unnecessary comments. Jennifer Estep, adding ‘smack-smack-smack’, ‘c...more

Gwen Frost continues on her journey to discover who she is and what she is meant to do. We are back at the elite Mythos academy where everyone is rich, beautiful and powerful. Gwen is no longer a loner and outcast (well not entirely), she now has a friend - the gorgeous pink obsessed Daphne. Kiss of Frost is a quick, easy read.
In Kiss of Frost we have the students go on a weekend excursion to a ski resort with another Academy. Someone is trying to kill Gwen and Gwen must find the culprit before...more

4.5 stars

It's not often that I say this, but this book was SO much better than the first. I really liked this first one, but this one wasn't so bogged down with the whole learning myth legends and having Gwen learn about who she is. Though it was a bit predictable (Oliver, Logan and Preston), I liked how Estep developed the story and moved it right along.

My ONLY complaint about this book is I wish there was more spark. (view spoiler)...more

Gwen Frost is back and she's finally settling into a rhythm at Mythos. She's training every morning before classes with Logan and two of his Spartan friends, and her free time is divided between gossiping with new BFF Daphne, visiting her grandma, and working at the library. Things seem all right, until her life is threatened once again. She knew a Reaper of Chaos would come for her eventually, but she didn't realize she'd be in such danger on campus. Which is...more

Needless to say, when Jennifer Estep asked if I'd like an ARC of this book to review, I jumped at the opportunity. I really loved Touch of Frost, with its gritty urban fantasy feel and Gwen's snarky voice. And while I didn't devour this one as quickly as the first book, it was still a really good book!

Gwen is just as snarky, and I really like living inside her head. She has a fresh perspective on the Mythos world, almost like an outside observer. She can see the good and bad, along with the just...more

While I gave this book 4 stars, I spent half of it being frustrated. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, simply because it takes a lot out of a book to make me feel any emotions that the character's are feeling. But Logan just frustrated the hell out of me. Half the time wanting to wring his neck and the other half thinking there may be some hope for him. And even after the book has been read, I still feel that frustration.

Then there was no surprise as far as Oliver's secret and who Preston re...more

4.5 stars!!!

Loved this sequel! What a great continuation of Gwen's journey at Mythos Academy. This was as action packed as the first. Lots of shit happening and sword fighting and magic and all the great stuff we've experienced in Touch of Frost. It was a lot of fun. Ienjoyed it

I loved the characters. Loved them all. First of all, Daphne. Let me say, I didn't care for her in ToF. She was such a bitch. I was sure I'd hate her. But. I was wrong, so wrong. She changed a lot, she grew a lot. She wa...more

@jennifer_estep - created another sweet layer to her Mythos Academy cake with Kiss of Frost. Maybe hunger is prompting me to use dessert as the metaphor or maybe Gwen and her Gram's sweet tooth is contagious; regardless, this is a book for anyone who loves ya mythology, yummy male mc or just likes to fall inside of an adventure that won't release you even when the last page turns.

Not familiar with this series??? Let's fix that!!!

What a train wreck!!! I wish somebody warned me! All this book is doing recapping the previous one. I've already read the first book. I know what happened there so I dont know why the author keeps recapping it! Why act like these characters are new, like you are introducing them now while you've already did that in the first one?! Seriously why?!! Cant you find some new stuff to write?! Cant you find a better way to fill the blanks?!




I'm definitely staying away from this series and...more

I liked this story better than the first one in this series... :) Basically reminded me of VA series & House of night series... No similarities between the main characters but the story-line is quite a bit inspired from two of my favourite series'. Looking forward to read the next one.. :)
Paranormal Haven
The students at Mythos Academy go on holiday to the Winter Carnival. Right before they leave Gwen almost gets run over, and shot with an arrow. She believes it is due to a Reaper wanting revenge for the death of another Reaper. At the Winter Carnival similar strange things start happening, leading her to uncovering the truth behind it.

This is the second book in the Mythos Academy series. The first part of the book felt like a recap of everything that had happened in the first book. The Mythos A...more

Previously Published on my blog: Welcome to Larissa's Bookish Life

I have recently been on a Paranormal Y.A. binge and after being so turned off by the genre for a while, I am so happy to be back on the horse.

Even though the Paranormal YA genre is still hit and miss for me, there are some incredible series that can’t help but fascinate and enthrall me. Jennifer Estep’s Mythos Academy is definitely one of those, even though it’s one of the newest in my TBR.

I loved Touch of Frost back in July and I...more

If it's even possible,I enjoyed reading Kiss of Frost even more so than Touch of Frost!And believe me when I'm saying that Touch of Frost was among the few new YA paranormal titles I loved this year!

Kiss of Frost picks up a few weeks after the ending of the first book and continues the story of Gwen,her adjusting as Nike's champion, her copying with her unrequited love towards Logan and her life in general at Mythos.

Ahhhh, Jennifer Estep likes to test me, even if the 3 stars were given more freely this time.

In my review of Touch of Frost , I voiced my hopes that the series will improve and that much is true; this book was definitely a notch above the previous. But I still feel like we're just going on circles around that main awesome storyline these books were meant to engage. And no, I'm not talking about battling Loki which seems to be the endgame, but about something else, something I feel it's missing a...more

As a huge fan of TOUCH OF FROST, I couldn't stop myself from doing the happy dance when KISS OF FROST arrived on my doorstep. TOUCH OF FROST ended at such a point where I went insane from the dire need to find out what happens next! I am so, so, so, so happy with where Estep went with this one. The characters are further developed, the action is still there, and there is still mucho chemistry between Logan and Gwen. KISS OF FROST kicks it up a notch, so much so that I am expecting a lot from the...more

***Warning spoilers if you have not read book 1 TOUCH OF FROST***

KISS OF FROST is filled with action. Plenty of slippery situations arise and plenty of romantic tension situations between Logan and Gwen springs up. Book one TOUCH OF FROST provided a lot of background and character introduction. KISS OF FROST took up where it left off and gave us more adventure while showing us the advancement of Gwen's power.

Gwen is completely different from anyone at Mythos Academy. Not only is she not a direct...more

I'm just happy to be done with this book, any more time with Gwen and I would have screamed. Seriously, spending too much time in her head is driving me bonkers. Maybe she is not that bad, since a lot of people seem to like her, but we just don't click. At this point I don't know if I want to continue with the series. At the very least I need a really long, loooong, break.

It doesn't help that the author likes to repeat things so many times, as if to make sure that by the end of the boo...more

I totally adored this book, but it did have it's set backs. OK OK, more specifically one set back in particular that was annoying the heck out of me: the repeating!

For example, I think I read about the day Gwen's mom died to never come back about 5 times in just one chapter! I found myself skipping pages because it was just repeating stuff that I was sick of knowing or that was simply obvious. Ex: Gwen's type of magic, all the types of magic of Daphne, Carson & Logan, past events (Gwen's mom

Joy (joyous reads)
Reason number one why I was chomping at the bits to get started on this book right away, was because of how Gwen and Logan's relationship kind of didn't happen in the first book. Lucky for me, I was able to read both books back to back. I'm glad this book didn't fall for the second in the series syndrome wherein authors were unable to sustain the same intensity as the first book. I'd say that this was actually better.

At the end of Touch of Frost, Logan became Gwen's trainer of some sort. I was a...more

“Two students severely injured, you yourself covered in blood, a Reaper on the premises, a Fenrir wolf running around loose somewhere, and extensive property damage to the resort. Well?" Nickamedes snapped. "What do you have to say for yourself, Gwendolyn?"

I thought for a second, then grinned at him. "I followed your directions exactly. I never set one foot outside the hotel.”
