Touch of Frost
by Jennifer Estep

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy — a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why—especially since I should have been the one who died. . .

my thoughts~ Before I started reading Touch of Frost yesterday, I went over to Goodreads and read some of the reviews for this book and First Frost. Now I know that not everybody will like a book, but what I noticed was that all the things that most mentioned were what I consider normal teenage things. Like designer labels. Teenagers (most teens) obsess over the label name. So anyway...I really, really enjoyed this YA book! I loved that it is about Spartans, Valkyries and Amazons, OH MY! And don't forget the Gods & Goddesses too! Gwen has a hard time believing the 'Myths' that the professors are teaching at Mythos Academy. Well until events happen that make it hard for her to deny that those myths aren't myths at all! Will I continue reading this series? HECK YES! Next book out: Kiss of Frost. Look for it on sale November 29, 2011!
