Summary: 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... – Goodreads
This is the second book in the Mythos Academy series. I finished the first book, Touch of Frost, which left me waiting for more, because I really want to know what happens between Gwen and Logan, they can’t leave me hanging!
It’s the Winter Carnival at Mythos Academy – where the students spend a trip at a fancy ski resort. It may sound like Gwen is going to have a great time… think again. After figuring out the Ashton family are all Reapers, Gwen has to watch her back, because the Ashton’s won’t take the killing of there youngest daughter very easily. Gwen is making sure is careful, but she wants to have fun and let go too. Since Logan Quinn broke her heart and ignores her, Gwen wants to forget and what better way to do that with Preston from the New York Academy? Now that Gwen is trying to have fun, Logan leaps back in the picture. Gwen dosen’t know what to do between both guys, especially since someone is trying to kill her. Gwen thinks it’s one of her own classmates and decides to put the blame on him, except she is on the wrong track. In a whirlwind of incidents and confusion with Logan, Gwen has to figure out who is after her and why.
Arrrrrgggghhhh! The tension between Logan and Gwen is literally frying my brain! First Logan is there, then he’s not, then he is… make up your mind, Logan! Okay, putting that aside, this was a pretty good book, but there was a thing I noticed, it was when Gwen was explaining something it would sound exactly like one of the sentences from the first book. Or maybe I’m just paranoid. I thought that Logan was a bit confusing when he would look like he was going to kiss Gwen and then goes and makes out with his girlfriend. I bet you Gwen was probably confused too. When Gwen met Preston at the party and later Daphne said there was no one by the name of Preston at the New York Academy, it became pretty obvious who he was. There was a part that kind of freaked me out, as well as confuses me – when Oliver goes to the extremes to just “scare” Gwen from saying his secret. I thought that was a bit exaggerated. One part I’m interested to know more about, is if the Fenrir wolf comes back to Gwen as her companion. That would probably make me read the third book. Well, I would read it also because I want to know who Loki’s Champion is!! I think Loki’s Champion will look exactly like Gwen with a few changes. That’s my guess though, I could be completely wrong about that. This book ended very well, because I was left wanting more. I actually stared at the wall thinking of all the possible outcomes, but I have a feeling that a third book wouldn’t be able to cover everything that is going to happen. This means there might be a fourth book… Anyways, all in all this was a good read, which means READ IT!
8.25 stars
