I loved the original Frost serie by Jennifer Estep and ever since I heard that she was going to continue the story, I've waited for the chance to read it. I loved Rory when she was introduced in one of Gwen's books. I find her strong, kind, honourable and vulnerable.
I found the story very engaging and since I read her other series to, it was fun to discover the Easter eggs that she hid inside the book.
I loved returning to the Mythos academy world. I found the story to be very engaging. The end battle was really well done and the outcome is quite unexpected.
I found her writing style more descriptive than I remembered from her earlier books, but it didn't bother me.
I'd advise you to read it if you like reading Young adult, Urban Fantasy and love Mythology.
There are some elements that reminded me of Gwen's story:
- Both are orphans, Gwen is raised by her Gran, Rory by her aunt.
- They both have talking swords: Vic and Babs
- Their best friend is a Valkyrie. Daphne and Zoë
- They're both chosen by goddesses: Nike and Sigyn
- Their "boyfriends" both get betrayed by family. Ian by his brother and Logan by his stepmother
And some more.
Luckily, although she's pointing to Gwen's story a bit too much for my taste, there are also some elements in which the story feels different and original.
- We're at a different academy with a different setting
- Rory's aunt lives on campus
- the griffons
- the adversary is not a God but Covington (Sisyphus) who killed Rory's parents
- there are different artifacts
- the Midgard team
- the amount of friends is the same, but Zoë, Ian and Mateo are quite different from Daphne, Carson and Logan
- Babs is cursed
It is a new school year, and suddenly she is fighting monsters and Reapers. What is going on? She thought the threat was over after Loki was defeated, but there is a new threat at the Colorado school and she becomes involved along with new warrior-students.
As exciting as the original series, yet with a difference that makes the reader want to race through the pages. Will Rory follow in her parents' footsteps or will she find the courage and determination to be the Spartan she wants to be?
Per usual, there is humor and Easter eggs to find as Estep sprinkles her novels with both.
Well worth the read and I wait impatiently for the next in the series.

Everything seemed normal, but at Mythos Academy, that was usually when things got the most dangerous.Read more
