Review: Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Notice: If you haven’t read Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy), you may not want to read this review of book two due to slight spoilers. As always there are no spoilers from book two, Kiss of Frost.

At Mythos Academy, teen warriors in the making train to take up their roles protecting humankind. With her snarky, self-deprecating voice and strange gift of psychometry – the ability to know an object’s history just by touching it – Gwen Frost is an outsider both to the students of the Academy and the rest of the world. But now that she’s taking private tutoring with the Academy’s most notorious young Spartan, and has Nike’s own sword to protect her, she’s ready to make mark…

In Touch of Frost, Gwen learned more about her abilities, as well as learning about the different types of warriors. Kiss of Frost picks up shortly after Touch of Frost left off. Gwen is working to further strengthen her abilities and is training with some of the teen warriors to be able to better defend herself.

Gwen’s life is being threatened, but instead of asking for help she tries to take care of herself. Yep, another person not asking for help when knowing they are ill-equipped to deal with the issue. Throughout the book I was wanting to scream at her, I get she wants to prove herself to everyone, but ASK FOR HELP. Aside from me wanting to throw things at the character’s head, I really did enjoy Kiss of Frost. I do like Gwen, she just needs to grow up a bit.

I do have to say that the big discovery of just what was happening surprised me! I had feelings of who/what was going on, but was pleasantly surprised there were a few twists and turns. I can’t wait to see what Estep brings to us for Dark Frost.

I received my copy of Kiss of Frost for review from the publisher.

    I definitely get your frustrations with Gwen. I did feel like she learned her lesson and it was a little bit okay with me because she knew she was being dumb. However, I did really like this one and glad you did too!

    I’m glad you liked it, I can’t wait to read this one, it sounds really great

  3. I’m SO excited to read this, and to read such a fabulous review!
    I hate hate HATE the kind behaviour you just described: I’m sixteen! I’m invincible! I’ll solve all the world’s problems myself! Why oh WHY is it so hard to ask for help?

    It does sound like you enjoyed it other than this, though?
