Midnight Frost (Mythos Academy, #5)Here we go again …

Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.

As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …



I really enjoy this series, and I think any fan of mythology would also enjoy it. Jennifer Estep does a great job of incorporating different mythologies into this series. One of the things I like the most is learning about the artifacts. I don't know if they are real or not, but she makes them seem real-- and that's good enough for me.

What did not dazzle me with Midnight Frost is the lack of Logan. I knew he was MIA for a bit, but I still wanted him present and accounted for. In fact, without Logan, the majority of the book felt like a diary. There was a lot of telling and little action. Granted, Gwen's story and history developed a lot more in Midnight Frost, but as a whole something was lacking.

We do meet new characters which I enjoyed. I'm sure they will reappear in Killer Frost. Rory, Gwen's cousin, is spunky and as jaded as Gwen at times-- and she's a kick butt fighter. Thank goodness she's on a the good side! Beyond that, there isn't much going on with the characters. They don't really develop anymore. In fact, this felt like a continuation of the previous book and it probably could have been shortened and added to Crimson Frost instead of being a new novel.

It may seem like I didn't like this one, but I did. It was a super fast read. While the novelty is starting to wear off for me (loved the first two books), I still read them as they come out. I just adore Logan! I am sure Killer Frost is going to pack a HUGE punch because everything has been building for it. Don't miss out!
