Title: Kiss of Frost
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Mythos Academy #2
This book picks up a few weeks after the events in the previous one. Gwen and the rest of Mythos Academy are heading to a ski resort for Winter Carnival. Unfortunately, Gwen is being targeted again and finds the Carnival very different from what she was expecting.
Gwen has finally settled into life at Mythos Academy. She still is very behind compared to the other students, but she is learning. Her psychic gift is also growing stronger and she is finding new ways to utilize it, especially in battle. I really like the new way she can utilize her ability and I can’t wait to see more of it in the future.
While Gwen definitely grew more confident in her abilities in this one, she also had a few very teenage moody scenes. I didn’t love how she treated Oliver in this one but at the same time, it was very common teen behavior. I also didn’t love how she is constantly going on about needing to be careful so she doesn’t uncover people’s secrets, but the instant she accidentally does she feels she has to learn everything about them. I just find it weird.
I enjoyed this wintery adventure. It was definitely exciting and unexpected at times. There is some new information about Gwen’s mothers death that I was kind of expecting, but still a surprise in other ways. There is also progression in Logan and Gwen’s relationship. So far, the relationship definitely feels like a high school one with its drama and awkwardness.
Overall, I enjoyed this and look forward to seeing what Gwen will do next.
