Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep – a Review
I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.
Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.
Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am
Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep is the 6th book and final book in her Mythos Academy series. Estep gives us an exciting, action packed and wild finale with Gwen Frost and her friends at Mythos Academy, as they battle Loki and the Reapers.
I am not going to tell too much about this book, as I do not want to give out spoilers, and the whole book is filled with them. But I will say that it was such a fabulous story all the way through. Estep just kept giving us more and more of Gwen, as she knows what she has to do to protect her friends and family. Gwen grows up even more, learning how to use her magic, and putting together many of the clues her goddess Nike told her over the years. It was so exciting; I could not put the book down, as I was dying to see how this would all end. Believe me when I tell you, there was so many battles, you worried if Gwen & her friends would survive.
What I loved about this final book is that we got to see so many of the characters we have come to love throughout this series. Besides, Gwen, Logan, Daphne, Carson, Vic, Nyx, Grandma Frost, Nickamedes, Metis, and so many others from Mythos; we got to see Rory & Rachel, the Grypons (including baby gryphon). We also must suffer the terrible deeds of Vivian, Agrona, and Loki in their quest to kill Gwen and all of those at Mythos Academy. There so many things that happened throughout, but the last 1/3 of the book was a humdinger, with so many shocking events that glued you to your seat even more.
So many thoughts as you raced to finish in this exciting mind-boggling climax. Will Gwen survive? Will Gwen ever finally payback Vivian for all that she has done to hurt her family? Will Loki be defeated in his quest to take over the world? What will happen to Logan, Daphne, or Carson? There are so many more, that I found myself holding my breath to the end.
Jennifer Estep has outdone herself with this final book, as I loved every moment, even when things were disastrous. I will miss Gwen Frost and her fun gang of friends, and Mythos Academy. It was a wonderful ride. Thank you, Jennifer Estep for this fabulous series. On a last note, Jennifer has stated that she might revisit this later, possibly with a different arc or a novella.
