First off, I did enjoy the characters and the world in this book. It was fun, and I look forward to reading the next one. However, I was disappointed that this wasn't a standalone trilogy, and that things are still left unresolved. I don't think I'll buy the next one unless it is super cheap, but I'll definitely check it out from the library to see what happened. I liked the main character and the sexy bad boy Logan. Their interactions were fun. The mythos was also interesting, and there were good friendships and moments of compassion in these books.

That being said, the mysteries in each book were extremely predictable. I spent more than half of each novel knowing exactly who the bad guy was and what was 'secretly' going on. Maybe it is because I am an adult reading this, but I've read a lot of YA books that do mysteries successfully.

It was also weird that everyone called her (including herself), "Gypsy girl." It got old super fast. Plus, what in the heck do gypsies have to do with greek gods??? They never touched on that. Also, the description of her as plain, yet having violet eyes made ME roll my eyes. Oh woe is me teenager who is obviously not that plain.

Another complaint I have is that this school and set of gods, they tell us, includes all sorts of cultures like Japan and south America too. She mentions this in most of the books... yet we never see anything but Greek/Roman and Nordic Gods and mythology. All of the characters are white or Mediterranean too. If there are multicultural Gods and powers, why do we never see any? There was a bad case of telling instead of showing.

I also felt like the culture of everyone drinking, partying, and having sex was a little overemphasized.

Some YA books read older than they are. This is not one of them. There was a lot of broody teen dialogue which got a little old. But, as someone who never learned anything about mythology, it was cool learning a little bit about these gods and the legends surrounding them.

Once again I took advantage of a bargain. I always try to find some books close to the end of the month (Yes I only get paid once a month! I am on disability) I filed this purchase away for a rainy day when I needed something to read. I completely overlooked the fact that this series was written by Jenifer Estep. I loved reading her Spider series, and I am totally jealous of the fact that she can tell an amazing story and the main character be a kick ass assassin! This series of books were a wonderful read that had many twists and turns. I also liked the fact that several times the Pork Pit was mentioned witch is the base of operations for the assassin her Esteep's other series. I wonder how much damage Gwen and the spider could do working as a team???? Any thoughts about that Jennifer?

Anyways enough of my rambling. The series is a good read that is light in nature. Yes some of the characters and plots are predictable, but so was Harry Potter and we all know how that turned out. There are more books than just these four, but the bundle value is worth the cash. Start here and go on a journey that Percy Jackson would be lost on. The detail that Estep puts in the description of the Academy and all the sculptures around here are wonderfull as the reader ends up immersed in a world in which the gods and goddess of many religions once again use humans as the chess pieces. Wonderful story.

The main character is these stories is 17 year old Gwen. She is fun to follow along and only a little annoying with her self depreciating thoughts, mostly she is ok with herself. The novela, which I read after the first book, was just repeated in Touch of Frost, so kind of pointless. Touch of Frost was a good, fun, easy read. Kiss of Frost was terribly repetitious of the previous book and even of itself. Fortunely she has corrected this problem in Dark Frost. The "reminder" text is kept to a few sentences rather than retelling the whole backplot as though it were the first time the reader had heard it. The action is faster in the last book too, so much more fun.

I kept seeing this YA series from Jennifer Estep but kept bypassing it. Finally, I saw the bundle of four books for an awesome price and decided to try it. I'm a huge fan of her Elemental Assassin series and now I'm adding this to my list of favorite YA series. Great series and definitely looking forward to reading the other books.

The books seem to be targeted primarily to tweens and teenage girls, and in many ways resemble the Harry Potter stories, but there are significant differences and they are fun stories that are very enjoyable including some great action sequences.

This book would certainly appeal to teenagers but since I am long past that age, it seemed quite juvenile to me. Gwen and her boyfriend fell madly in love after one glance and no conversation, but could never get together because of one stupid reason or another, but felt it necessary to obsess on and on about it. Also, I thought that if I had to read the phrase "in the first place" one more time I would scream. Once I counted it 3 times on the same page. Also, each book took far too much time reiterating things that had happened in past books. That being said, it had an interesting plot, which enabled me to finish reading it.
