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 fin ...more

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.

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


It's just another shitty YA book, another author who doesn't have the heart to write a decent 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 g

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.

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

Хорошая серия. Ни великолепная, ни шикарная, ни плохая, ни ужасная, а именно хорошая. Этакий твердый середнячок, который понравится фанатам «Перси Джексона» и «Академии Вампиров». Серия представляет собой смесь мифов и типичный приключенческий YA, читается буквально взахлеб (благодаря легкости и простоте), но и желания перечитывать определенно не возникает.

Вторая книга серии также значительно уступает первой. Здесь больше шаблонов, уровень предсказуемости – Бог, а героиня на протяжении книги пр

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

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

Zum Ende hin hat es mich etwas genervt, dass der Fokus so stark auf Gwens Mutter lag. Der eigentliche Höhepunkt war bereits 40 Seiten davor, wo Band 2 prima hätte enden könnten.
Trotzdem, die Geschichte hat mir sehr gut gefallen und dieser Teil war sogar noch etwas besser als sein Vorgänger. :)

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
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

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

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.

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'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

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)

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
DNF - no rating!

I tried and failed. To be fair, the first book in this series was a letdown. It sounded something between Percy Jackson and Vampire Academy. The first book was standard YA paranormal with all the expected elements and clichés. That's good enough to get a three star if done well. Kiss of Frost though, is too stupid for me to be able to finish.

I got to 30% and by then it was more or less a complete ripoff of Frostbite, Richelle Maed's second book in her Vampire Academy series. All

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

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

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

- It's a known fact that repetition is the mother of knownledge, and Gwen follows this saying blindly. So you've read the first book, right? Oh, like yesterday? And now you're onto Kiss of Frost right away? Whatever, like you could possibly remember all the amazing, mind-blowing things that happened in the Touch of Frost. Let Gwen remind you. Even if you for some unforgivable reason didn't read the first book, don't worry, every important scene or explanation is copied and pasted i
@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!!!
