Killer Frost (Mythos Academy, #6)I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.

Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.

Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am.

I am so sad to see this series end! I love Logan and his crew. I love Grandma Frost and the teachers at Mythos Academy. I love the mystical creatures that roam through the pages. This is such a fun series. But alas, all good things must come to an end. 

Gwen is back and is as fierce as ever. She is still kicking some major Reaper butt. As a finale, I think Killer Frost handled things well. Normally, the finales of long series tend to be rushed or completely out in left field, but Killer Frost held down the fort. The pacing was just right and there weren't too many surprises lurking in the shadows. 

My biggest complaint in this series has been the lack of surprise, but it's ok. They have felt predictable and I haven't been knocked out of my socks for some time. Regardless, though, I've still really enjoyed these. There is something that keeps me coming back. What is it? It's the characters and their interactions with one another. 

Gwen and Logan have a very complicated history. Just like any believable relationship, there are ups and downs. They each have flaws, but despite those flaws they still come back to each other. Then you add in the besties. I love Daphne-- pink fetish and all. The supporting characters are just as important and the major ones, and it's hard to say which would be a favorite. The enemies are pretty good too. Loki's champion didn't do much for me in the villain department. She seemed more like an annoying mosquito buzzing around, but the big dogs delivered. Loki's role was especially interesting throughout this series. 

I know I am biased when it comes to mythology. Unless it stinks like a rotten peach, I'm going to enjoy it. I admit it. I would not, however, say that is the case with the Mythos Academy series. They do not stink like month old peaches. They are delightful and fun. You will find yourself devouring them in one sitting. Now that the full series is available, go ahead and have them all ready to be read in an epic read-a-thon. You won't want to wait to see what happens next.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?

These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
