For debut titles there is a certain amount of leniency that you will allow a writer. You can overlook things that would normally bug you because this is the debut title introducing a whole new world. Well, Estep used that get out of jail card on her debut YA book, Touch of Frost, which I enjoyed despite it's over obvious plot. This time around Estep makes all the same mistakes, but I can't overlook them this time.

The plot "twists" and climaxes were so obvious that I almost wanted to put the book down. I knew everything that was going on before the author even introduced the new characters. After a while I kept thinking, surely an author of Estep's caliber could not write something this predictable? Right? Before even a little hint could be put out there I knew where this story line was going. Yes I'm over emphasizing it, but who wants to read a book that you can predict from the first page.

I'd like to say that this time the great cast of characters saved the book and that I enjoyed them fully. However, I really can't. Gwen is annoying in her "I'm just a gypsy and need to prove myself" mind set and her obvious stupidity. The whole time she was lusting after Logan while he's trying to get over her, was boring. Jealousy as a plot devise for developing a love story has never been something I've been interested in. It only ever seems to make the characters look ridiculous and pull out traits that make them seem unredeemable. Besides that, Logan shacking up with another girl while he's obviously in love with Gwen did not earn him any points--unless you like your men slutty.

Sure I'm greatly disappointed with this second title in Estep's new YA series, but I did enjoy it.

In the second installment of Mythos Academy we pick up shortly after Touch of Frost left off. The kids are getting ready to go to the yearly winter festival at a ski lodge and Gwen is convinced that there is another Reaper after her. Of course, going to the fesitval doesn’t really help matters. The Reaper has seemed to follow her and has pulled a bunch of tricks in order to kill her. However, Gwen’s learned a trick of her own to help her survive.

I was really hoping that once the the first book was out of the way and the ball was rolling that this one would start off with a bang, but that’s not the case. The author does a lot of reviewing about not only what took place in the last book, but about the characters themselves and the world that she created. I found myself skimming over a bit of the book to get to the story. Maybe if I hadn’t jumped from the first book straight to this one, the reviewing of everything wouldn’t have bothered me as much but I felt like I was reading the first in a series all over again.

I liked that the author added in more characters to the forefront. We get more interaction with Logan’s Spartan friends. They actually start training Gwen with weapons and self-defense. Plus there is a change of scenery since the students go away for the annual Winter Carnival at a ski lodge. And there is a potential new love interest for Gwen, who just might help her get her mind off of Logan and the fact that he’s moving on with another girl.

But… it felt very much like Frostbite to me. I know in my last review I said fans of Vampire Academy would enjoy this and they would. There are similarities between the two books that almost feel like it’s a re-telling of the story with a few variations mixed in.

I really enjoy the mythology in this story. I like the characters and the world that the author has created. I even like that it reminds me of VA since that is my favorite series. I will definitely continue with the series.

Format: Paperback
Kiss of Frost, the second novel in The Mythos Academy series, once again showcases Gwen Frost. In the first novel Gwen learns that her Gypsy abilities are about more than just touching and seeing. She comes to find out that her abilities will be soon put to the test to keep the evil god Loki in the underworld prison.

In Kiss, Gwen is learning how to fight reapers in order to protect not only herself, but the world in general, as she is the Nike Champion. In the beginning, she's not so hot with a sword, archery, or any other type of weapon, dropping them more often them hitting someone. However, she and her best friend Daphne, realize she may be able to hone in on the skills by using her gypsy gift (this reminded me of the TV series CHUCK, where he is able to see what he needs to do by `flashing') and soon Gwen is placing arrows smack dab in the middle of the target, compliments of Daphne's skills.

When the students head up to the mountain for winter carnival, Gwen is trying to do her best to keep Logan off of her mind (see book 1), and falls for another student from the New York academy. We realize during this novel that this student isn't cracked up to be who he portrays himself as. Gwen is able to hone in on Logan's weapons skills and defeats the student in a battle of weapons.

This series is an excellent YA series that I have been enjoying and look forward to the next novel! I recently read that it has been expanded to six novels, which I feel will be the perfect number of novels to set up, expand and close this story line. I anxiously await to see what happens to Gwen in the next novel. Will she and Logan part ways again, or will Logan put away his bad boy routine and settle down with Gwen? What will happen she he learns that Gwen knows his secret? Is Daphne as pure as we are lead to believe? What about Collin, the band geek? So many questions, so long to wait!
