I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Academy, and I have no idea how I’m going to survive the rest of the semester. One day, I’m getting schooled in swordplay by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gorgeous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invisible archer in the Library of Antiquities decides to use me for target practice. And now, I find out that someone at the academy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword...
Gwen is really coming into her power.
“Logan Quinn was trying to kill me.” Is the first sentence and the emotional theme of Kiss of Frost. Poor Gwen, she has to watch Logan suck face with Savannah. But then enters Preston, the blonde haired, blue eyed, very hot Viking from New York branch of Mythos.
The students are excited for the yearly trip to a ski resort for the Winter Carnival, where Gwen meets the super cute Preston. But just when he looks like he could help Gwen forget about Logan, she learns that Preston has a secret.
Gwen is still trying to find her place at Mythos Academy and dealing with the lost of her mother. She’s still just that Gypsy girl to most of the students but in Kiss of Frost Gwen finds herself with a new best friend and by the end of the book has is more friends.
As Gwen tries to navigate through the hell that is teenage romance she learns that her Gypsy power is more than just seeing people’s secrets. It’s a true touch power and it doesn’t work one way.
Issue(s) I had:
YUCKO is back and it’s still driving me crazy. If you read my review of Touch of Frost you’ll remember that the word was used a lot and it got on my nerves. I thought it was the narration that caused it…. nope. Reading Kiss of Frost it still bugged me. But it’s a small price to pay.
I’m not completely sold on Vic the sword talking either. But again this is a small matter that I can over look.
Gwen has the potential of being a real warrior. I can’t wait to see how she continues to grow and how Logan will fit into her life.
Will I Continue the Series?
Yes. It’s just getting good!
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
