Kiss of Frost (Mythos Academy #2)
It's as if I've been on this merry-go-round of "same story, same ahole guy, same ever...more
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 also find it hard to like the heroine. Harry Potter had four...more
Thumbs Up: 4

Plot: The Winter Carnival isn’t fun and games least not for Gwen
Page Turner: Yes
Series Cont.? Yes
Book Boyfriend: Oliver
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
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
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
I really can’t stand how the author is writing unnecessary comments. Jennifer Estep, adding ‘smack-smack-smack’, ‘c...more

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)[I remember thinking why is Logan being such a butthead (though...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
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
Then there was no surprise as far as Oliver's secret and who Preston re...more
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

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 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.
This book has everything a g...more
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

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...more

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