it was amazing

High school can be hard, especially if you attend a school full of children raised as warriors, and you only just found out you were one as well. Gwen Frost is not just a warrior, but Champion for the Goddess Nike. She is tasked with keeping Loki (the God of Chaos) from escaping his imprisonment, while avoiding being killed by his minions - the Reapers. When the Reapers attack and kill some of her classmates, Gwen feels it is her fault. When she tries to solve the minor problem of keeping the world from falling into chaos, she earns the ire of those closest to her. They are tired of the way she rushed into things, putting herself and others in danger. Though she was not raised to think like a strategic fighter, they hold that against her. Maybe it isn't fair to hold her to that standard, but in a very real-life way, her best friend and boyfriend turn on her because of their own emotional fears - when people are afraid, they lash out at those closest to them because they are the safest people to hurt. So, when Gwen is attacked, she can't count on the people who should be there for her. However, a "friend" from the past intervenes and provides her the support she needs so that she can learn to be strong despite the pain and hardship she experiences. Wonderful third book in this series. I look forward to reading "Crimson Frost."
