Summary: 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.

My Thoughts: OH WOW! Dark Frost sure does start out with a bang!

We are back with Gwen and her group of friends!  Carson, Daphne, Logan and Gwen are visiting a museum (along with plenty of other students from Mythos) when all hell breaks loose.  Reapers come in and a fight breaks out! A lot of people are killed.

Dark Frost focuses on Gwen and her psychometry magic and how she can use it. It focuses on Loki and how he’s going to find a way to make his way into their world again. And kill everyone he can get his hands on! It focuses on Logan and Gwen’s relationship and all the drama at Mythos Academy. And it focuses on the Reapers and how they plan to kill Gwen and everyone she knows.

Estep sure does know how to draw a person into the story. I was so into it, I fell asleep reading and got back up the next morning to finish this novel! It was so freaking good. Even though some parts are predictable, I still couldn’t stop reading!

Gwen and Logan together= HOT! I want more of him right now! I need the next in the series!

And that wolf! I want a pet wolf! I was so happy to see her back in Gwen’s life.

Dark Frost made me laugh out loud and have to try to explain to my boyfriend why I was laughing! But it also made me cry, and the boyfriend also asked me why I was crying over a novel! I couldn’t help it, but a few tears ran down my face. I’m sure you know the part I’m talking about! Poor poor girl.

Dark Frost was full of action and mystery and I felt like I left this novel knowing more about Mythos Academy, and what Gwen will have to face next.  The last page of the book I did feel a little down. I was like, thats it??? NOOOOOO!!!

Overall: Loved it! I just love this series so much! I adore it. If you're looking for a fun series with unforgettable characters, please start this one now!

Cover: Like it.  I don’t love these covers, but they are ok.

What I'd Give It:



I have not kept up with this series. Well, I have the second one half read, which means I'll have to start it over. But in general I have liked the story. You're right though, I'd love it if the covers showed a picture of Mythos Academy and those gargoyles at the gates!
