Dark Frost [Review]

336 pages [Kindle]
Published 29 May 2012

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.

Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?

It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.

My Thoughts:

Estep seriously blows my mind. I've read the 3 books in the series in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put them down. Dark Frost was no exception. Instead of a slow intro that gets you back into the groove with the characters, you are thrown into the middle of a gruesome Reaper attack in the museum that Gwen, Daphne, Carson, and Logan are at for a myth-history report. This is the first time that Gwen meets the Reaper Girl who murdered her mother. More is uncovered of her mom's past at the Academy through her mom's diary that she found in her grandma's attic. There is a lot of confusion about the relationship between Gwen and Logan - they are both so emotional and Gwen's powers definitely get in the way of their communication. Not to mention, an old friend shows back up to assist Gwen.

This book left me speechless, it left me crying (3 times, people!), and it definitely left me crazy excited for the 4th book, Crimson Frost. I'm ready to see where Estep goes with the story next!

Thanks to Kensington Press & NetGalley for letting me review this book!
