Review'd: Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Book Review:

Title: Touch of Frost
Author: Jennifer Estep
Published July 26th 2011 by Kensington Publishing Corporation
Rating: 5 stars

Goodreads Summary: My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy — a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.
But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why—especially since I should have been the one who died. . .

DeLibrarie (Del) Review: I don't think I'll ever get sick of reading books based on mythology. They might be my favorite. :)  This book started out a little bit slow, I got a little annoyed at the constant "Debbie Downer Syndrome" that seemed to have consumed our main character, Gwen, however, I do have to cut her some slack... she did have a pretty tragic event recently happen. Anyway, once the story started to pick up a little bit... I was more than hooked. Jennifer Estep is an amazing writer, and I literally could not put it down! It has everything, it has suspense, magic, mythology, mean girls, supernatural boarding school and just the right amount of romance. The amazing part is that it managed to have everything that makes a great story, without being all cliche and totally predictable. It was a really great story told beautifully... and Vic... totally my favorite character! Seriously can't wait for the next one!
