Midnight Frost (Mythos Academy #5) by Jennifer Estep
Release Date: 30 July 2013
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 …
My Opinion 4 STARS
Another all action adventure in the life of Gwen Frost and her friends at the Mythos Academy.
Gwen is still sore that Logan has left her, she is sad and upset and kind of jealous that Logan even has the opportunity to run from the troubles that she faces.
With Logan out of the picture her friends rally around her, protecting her and supporting her. Reapers are coming out of the woodwork intent in killing at all angles and an accident happens in the library involving poison.
The only cure is a rare flower which can be found in some ruins in colorado. Knowing that it could be trap, Gwen and her friends make their way over where she finds unexpected help and new friends.
There are quite a few re-caps but they help build the bigger picture of what Gwen is battling and the challenges that she faces. Gwen never loses sight of her focus and shows tremendous courage and resiliance for a girl who know nothing of the mythological world such a short time ago.
Well worth a read.
