"Kiss of Frost" - Book Review

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 find out that some­one at the acad­emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword...
My Review:
As soon as I finished reading the cliff hanger Estep left us with in the first book of the Mythos Academy series Touch of Frost I wanted to read the sequel ASAP. I was not let down. Estep has a really cool way of writing and I love her witty humor laced throughout the book. Just when scenes get super intense and you're leaning forward in your seat she throws in a joke to lighten the mood ever-so-slightly.
The Mythos Academy series has become an instant favorite of mine, it's so original and strays from the stereotypical vampire/boarding school/werewolf/paranormal/normal girl isn't so normal after all novels out there. I've always been intrigued by Greek mythology and these books give a huge taste of it.
Kiss of Frost is probably my favorite book of the two I've read so far, however I wasn't really ecstatic in the beginning when there wasn't so much Logan action going on. But all of the action and blush-worthy moments at the end were worth the Logan-less scenes in the beginning. This book was action packed and Estep did a wonderful job with the characterization of a newly introduced character in this book. I was genuinely creeped out at some parts because of how well she wrote it. I'm super excited to read the next installment to the series to find out what happens next in the adventure.
