Title: Killer Frost
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Mythos Academy #6
The series finale is finally here and it was everything I could possibly want. It was suspenseful, action packed, and had a few surprises. Estep really did a great job at wrapping up this series with a satisfying ending.
Gwen really steps fully into her role as Nike’s Champion in this one. She makes risky moves but does everything in the hopes of protecting her family and friends. She puts everything into this last battle and all the training really pays off. Also, she outsmarts Loki and the Reapers in unique ways that really worked for me, and the story.
While Gwen is the main focus of this battle, each of the main secondary characters have their own part to play. Logan, Daphne, Carson, and the others never back down from supporting Gwen or from the final battle. Even Nickamedes, who is injured, finds ways to help in this final battle. Also, I really love how Nickamedes and Gwen’s relationship has changed throughout this series and he has become one of my favorite characters.
I really enjoyed this final battle against Loki. It was a fierce battle that took everyone’s help to win, even with Gwen being the final deciding factor. I never felt like the battle was missing anything or was disappointed in the steps of it. It was just beautifully written and felt like a believable concluding battle in this terrible war.
Overall, I really enjoyed this series and will miss Gwen Frost and her crew of misfits. I will definitely be picking up the spin-off series now though because I want to see if the other Mythos Academy is just as dangerous.
