I've seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I'm supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I'm just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me--again.
Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects--and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I'm also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me? It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can't use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me--and I'm in for the fight of my life.
What the hell is everyone’s problem?!
Series Deja Vu:
Since starting this series I’ve compared it to a mix of Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (minus the vamps). There is definitely some HP like elements. The reapers remind me of the death eaters in Harry Potter. And I think Nickamedes and Gwen’s relationship is much like Snape and Harry’s.
Dark Frost start off with a bang when some of the students are attacked by reapers at a museum during the Christmas break. Gwen and the gang make it out ok but now they are left wondering why the reapers attacked.
Like the bad guys in the movies…. they always come back for more if you don’t make sure they’re dead. And Priston is free and loose wrecking havoc along with a group of reapers that’s trying to find a weapon they believe is hidden in the library at the academy.
But Gwen has to take on things alone after she is dumped by her would be boyfriend and her best friend. Everyone has their panties in a twisted and Gwen (and me) can figure out why.
While I’m comparing Mythos to HP, Dark Frost is very much the darker of the series so far and I had the feeling I had after watching Fire of Goblet. The students at Mythos will never the be same. I see the series only getting darker with the threats that lay ahead.
But on a sweeter side, Gwen’s love life is starting to take shape.
