Most kids at the Colorado branch of Mythos Academy know me as Rory Forseti, the daughter of Reaper assassins. Secretly, I’m a member of Team Midgard, a group of students and adults tasked with stopping Covington, the evil leader of the Reapers of Chaos. For me, the mission is a deeply personal one, since Covington is also the man who

I was very excited to see that Jennifer Estep was going to write another book in the Mythos Academy series. I have read all the series that Estep has written but I think that this one has to be my favorite. I know, it’s a bit of a shocker, isn’t it? But I just really enjoy the mix of paranormal creatures of this book as well as the humor.

One of my favorite parts of this book is the fact that the series has so many different characters. They’re essentially players and throughout the series and

"Coldest Frost" ist der dritte Teil der Mythos Academy: Colorado Reihe und vermutlich auch der letzte Teil der Reihe.

Obwohl es schon ein wenig her ist, dass ich den vorherigen Band gelesen habe, bin ich ganz gut in die Geschichte reingekommen und hatte keine größeren Probleme mich in der Geschichte zurechtzufinden.

Mir hat das Buch wieder sehr gut gefallen. Ich mochte die mythologische Geschichte, die mit jeder Menge Spannung und Action gespickt war. Besonders die Handlung rum die Artefakte hat

Rory Forseti und ihre Freund suchen weiter nach mythologischen Artefakten, die ihnen im Kampf gegen den Anführer der Schnitter helfen könnten. Aber Covington ist ihnen einen Schritt voraus und schafft es tatsächlich, Rorys Team mit dem Gift der Roten Narzisse zu infizieren. Jetzt ist Rory auf sich allein gestellt, außer ihrem Schwert Babs sind alle infiziert. Aber als Champion hat sich noch den ein- oder anderen Trumpf im Ärmel.

Bei diesem Buch handelt es sich um den 3. und gleichzeitig letzten

Spoiler-Free Review

Spartan Destiny is the 3rd and final (I believe) installment of the Mythos Academy, Colorado spin-off. Not only do I strongly suggest reading the series in order to avoid any confusion, but I also believe it best to start with Touch of Frost, which is the debut in the Mythos Academy series, fully developing the world building throughout all the novels.

Band 3 der Colorado Mythos Academy. Ich habe ja geglaubt, dass irgendwann mal die Luft raus sein müsste. Aber Jennifer Estep hat es einfach drauf und überrascht mich immer wieder aufs Neue.

Rory kämpft immer noch dagegen an, dass ihre Eltern einmal Schnitter waren. Auf dem Campus ist sie immer noch nicht ganz akzeptiert, aber sie hat ihre besten Freunde und ihren tollen Freun Ian und weiß auch genau, was sie an ihnen hat. Das sie im Team Midgard ist, ist natürlich auch eine tolle Bestätigung für

This is the third novel in the Mythos Academy: Colorado (the spinoff series) trilogy which features Rory Forseti, a Spartan warrior with a past. Her fellow students distrust her because of her past of being the child of parents who happened to be Reapers of Chaos. That they were killed because they were trying to escape and disenfranchise themselves from those who had chosen that path seems to mean little to most students.

Yet, Rory is part of Team Midgard, the super-secret group of students and

Ein sehr gelungener Abschluß der Reihe.

Rory vertraut auf ihr Bauchgefühl auch wenn sie ihre Freunde nicht einweiht. Dies entpuppt sich aber noch zu einer glücklichen Fügung.
Rory bestreitet schon fast allein diesmal das Abenteuer, etwas ungewöhnlich, aber ihre Freunde stehen vorerst auf der falschen Seite. Kann Rory sie retten oder sie sind auf immer verloren und Convington gewinnt.
Mir hat die Geschichte sehr gut gefallen, ich bin gut rein gekommen auch wenn der letzte Band für mich etwas her

I'm not sure why, but I had a hard time getting into this one. I did like some of the choices that Rory made, like hiding away some of the artifacts. It made sense to me, even if others would have yelled at her if they knew she was doing it. The big confrontation was a little of a let down for me, not sure why. The way that they took over the school was genius for a bad guy. I was glad that Rory figured out a way to defeat them. I also liked the ending, it was very symbolic.

So lang wie ich auf dieses Buch gewartet habe, so schnell war es wieder ausgelesen. Sehr spannend und total schnell zu lesen. Typisch Jennifer Estep, sie hat mich noch nie enttäuscht.

I loved the original Mythos Academy series, so when I learned that there was going to be a spinoff series with Gwen’s cousin, I was beyond excited! But, you guys, this is it. I love the Mythos Academy world, so I am really sad that this is the end And while I’m sad that this is the end, I loved seeing Rory’s journey.

Speaking of Rory, Jennifer Estep always writes the best heroines ever! I love Rory! She is such a good person and so badass, especially with her

Spartan Destiny by Jennifer Estep is the 3rd book in her Mythos Academy: Colorado series. As I have noted previously, I am a big fan of the original Mythos Academy series, and have been enjoying this spin off.

Rory Forseti, our heroine (and cousin of Gwen Frost) is a Spartan warrior, who has many strengths and powers. Rory is a member of the Midgard (part of the Protectorate, who fight the bad Reapers), and the team works together to stop the Reapers, and save some of artifacts that Covington

The cover is total love and addiction! It just suits the other covers in this series perfectly and I adore it with all its tiny little details, which make sense once you read the story.

I can just say it over and over again - I'm addicted to Jennifer Estep's writing style. Her books always get me out of really bad reading slumps and 'Spartan Destiny' was no exception.

I loved how I found back into the story straight away without any problems whatsoever. The world building and the very well thought

This is the final book in the series. you should def. read the other two books in this series, and while you probably don't have to I would also recommend reading the series before this one The original Mythos Academy. With Gwen and Logan.. I would make everything make a lot more sense.
Its pretty much action packed from beginning to end.. Finally we get to see Rory and her friends take down the head of the Reapers.. Thank God! Ive been wanting that guy to get whats coming to him since the first

TBH I have nothing bad to say about this book. I was hooked from the beginning. The Mythos Academy series starting with Gwenn was always amazing. I’m sad that the book has came to a conclusion but I’m happy that Raurie found her happy ending. Sure there was battles. Magic artifacts, And action, and romance but there was also family. With each one of her books Estep Brings you into her world and makes you sympathize and empathize with her characters. I did not go to sleep until the last page. ...more

Mit diesem Band hat Rorys Geschichte einen würdigen Abschluss bekommen! Es war wie gewohnt spannend und actionreich, sodass man nur so durch die Seiten gerast ist. Und Rory ist auch eine sehr sympathische Protagonistin. Mein einziger Kritikpunkt (der mir schon bei mehreren Jennifer Estep Büchern aufgefallen ist) ist, dass die Autorin Hinweise in die Geschichte eingestreut hat, die für mich nicht gerade subtil waren, für die Charaktere aber nicht erkannt wurden. Das hätte man etwas anders lösen ...more

Diese Band ist der dritte Teil der Mythos Academy.
Ich bin in den Band trotz das Zeit zwischen dem lesen der Bände lag ausgesprochen gut rein gekommen und war gewohnt fasziniert und gefesselt von dem Buch. Mir hat dieser Band wieder einmal rundum gefallen. Besonders die mythologischen Aspekte, die mit Spannung und Action richtig gut gemacht waren haben mir sehr zugesagt. Die Handlung rund um die Artefakte hat mir gut gefallen.

I'm a huge fan of Jennifer Estep's books, since they're lighthearted, fun, and easygoing reads. This finale started off a little slow but picked up and essentially left Rory fighting alone for most of the book. Her tenacity was pushed to the limit, yet she has always been a strong young woman and one of my favourite side characters from the original books.

The action remained intense throughout, and fans of the previous series will enjoy the references to major past events and special guest

Pre-ordered - as I liked the other books in the series and the Frost series by Estep!

Again I really liked this one, 4 stars recommended, a little romance, no sex, great friendships and teamwork, very good fighting scenes and colourful descriptions of places and rooms.
Will probably not work when read out of order or as a standalone, you should read all books in the series in order.

Nice cozy feel-good-read, for some it may be less than 4 stars for being predictable when you have read the Frost

So happy that I found the whole Mythos Academy series. I was actually reading another review (through Barnes and Noble, not Goodreads) on a book that I was trying to decide if I was going to read or not, and someone mentioned this series (the North Carolina Mythos Academy read 1st of course) and after reading the description, I was instantly drawn to it. Now that I have read both series in their entirety, I think it's time to reread them all.
