Back in Touch of Frost, Logan rejects Gwen's proposal to start going out and now Gwen is just so bitter and nasty about the whole thing that it colored all her judgment and character. I just wasn't that interested in the continuous pity party. I cheered so loud when Daphne told her, "Oh, suck it up, Gwen." And the Valkyrie should've probably repeated it a couple of more times. At least she is fierce when confronting Logan. Gwen gets brownie points for not giving into him that easily.
Things finally pick up about 40% into the book, when they arrive at the ski resort. Oh, before that two attempts are made on her life by a Reaper of Chaos. Gwen's decides to be pretty stupid with the whole "I want to be a super warrior too" thing that she keeps quiet about every single incident thinking she can deal with it on her own. Why do heroes always do this? Think that they can take on the world without help. Anyways, there is all sorts of cool going on at the resort; hot guy from another academy, ski slopes and Winter Carnival, an avalanche, and oh yeah, a massive Fenrir wolf with blood red eyes. See? Action. Interesting.
By the end of the book Gwen was back in my good graces. She shows incredible bravery choosing to fight for her friends, and actually coming up with a plan to stop the Reaper. Also, yay for sexy Spartan Logan. I can never get enough of him, and once again I'm left wanting for more Logan time during this book. Sigh. Sadly I saw the villain coming a mile away. It was actually pretty hilarious reading his dialogue parts, because I already knew he was the bad guy.
I was going to give it 4 out of 5, because I do so love the mythology in this series, but that 40% recap just about killed me. I'll still be waiting for Dark Frost, which I pray doesn't have such a long recap.
So this book was full of surprises! We found out in the end of the last book that Gwen had to find the Helheim Dagger, the last piece of the puzzle that would free Loki from his prison. Grace, Gwen's mother, hid the dagger and died for it. Now the dagger is Gwens responsibility. Right now Gwen is being haunted with the knowledge that Preston, along with another reaper girl, killed her mother. She is also terrified of losing her bf Logan, a Spartan that she is deeply in love with, and knows his secret, but he doesn't know she knows, oy! And if that wasn't enough teen drama, Daphne comes into her power in the middle of a crisis, and turns hateful on everyone because it wasn't the power she was expecting. This is only the calm before the storm! There is deceit, betrayal, action, adventure, and death still to come!
I was on the edge of my seat and truly thought Gwen was going to die! The fear of losing our beloved heroine was too much! I didn't hit pause one time during that chapter! The fact that Nike gave Gwen a choice, (free will and all) really hit home with her I think. Gwen was at a cross roads because of how her magic developed, and the rift between her and Logan, and Nike just laid it out for her. You don't have to do squat! Well she didn't say it like that, but you dig me. This chapter in Gwen's life was, if nothing else, a weight lifted off her shoulders. She was able to put to rest some things from her past and come to an understanding and acceptance with the new things in her life. I feel good about where this story is going and look forward to hearing it all unravel through my ear buds, one chapter at a time.
Tara Sands continues to deliver a wonderful performance as Gwen Frost and her friends! I love you Tara, keep up the great work!
