Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Logan Quinn was try­ing to kill me. My Spar­tan class­mate relent­lessly pur­sued me, swing­ing his sword at me over and over again, the shin­ing sil­ver blade inch­ing closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes prac­ti­cally glowed with the thrill of battle...

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...
Okay... gotta make this unspoilery for those not yet started the first one... *taps foot* Okaaay.... *sigh* but I want to say SO much... *zips lip* but I won't!

This is a great second book in this series. LOVED it! We find ourselves shortly after the first book ends. We go through all the everyday school stuff we were set up for and are learning how to defend ourselves as is required of every mythos student. We also get a bit more background and learn along with Gwen more about the pantheon and what really exists in this world. *side note* Personally, although it seems that everyone doesn't like mythos history, I would love that class. Can I sit in or just borrow a book? Please? *end side note* While the beginning is a bit slow we do get the information we need and we also get caught up with what we may have not remembered.

Now, in the middle part of the book there is tons of action and mystery. And although I did figure out who did it before Gwen, I must say it still was a fun ride! I really enjoyed what happened and I feel that a few things were set up for us in the next book within this ride. I can't wait, personally to find out what it is!!

I should also say a few things about Logan. He is still the hottie of our first book, but to avoid spoilers I cannot say how I feel about him now. I don't even think I can say how I felt about him in the first book, but... oh nevermind... Just know that he is a hottie to swoon over!!! ;D

I give this book 4 stars! I loved it and I can't wait for the next book in the mythos series. Can I have it now? Seriously! Oh, and I want it for the story not because we were left with a cliffie. No cliffie!! Whee!!! ;)

Oh yea... and PS... I want a Fenrir wolf. The pups at home wouldn't mind, right? *lives in denial*
I was given this book by the author and no compensation for my review was given.

Books in the Series:
First Frost (ebook prequel)
Touch of Frost
Kiss of Frost

Btw, come back on the 1st. My fave character from the series, Vic, will stop by for a short Q&A with a giveaway! 


  1. A Fenrir wolf? To match your Aztec calendar I suppose, right? Keep dreaming ...;)

  2. Oh Great, now I have to go out and get this book as soon as possible, it sounds really good. I liked the first book a lot and this one sounds like it will be just as good.

    I'm also intrigued to know why you didn't want to talk about Logan...I wonder if it has something to do with what happened at the end of the last book. All I will say was that lips were involved. Guess I will have to read it for myself.

    I think I'll join you in the Mythos history class it sounds like fun to me, but I'm a history major so obviously I enjoy learning about history.

    Great Review!

  3. YAY!!!! I loved this one so much too, Gwen and Logan just make me happy:) I will so take that class on Mythos history with you and we can drool over Logan together. Also, I want a Vic for myself, I think he would be endlessly entertaining!

  4. I really have to pick this one up! I'm a huge fan of myths, strong characters, sexy leads that make me swoon, yell and shake them hard in frustration, action, and romance. Thanks for the unspoilery review!

  5. Y'all are so funny and yes I am talking about you and Jenny! I got the first book for Christmas (dang left it off my list) so I will catch up soon--I promise!

  6. Another series I have the first book but haven't read yet!! I do have the prequel short story so might tease myself with that in the next week...

    What will your puppy say if you get a Fenir cub as well??!! :)

  7. Too bad you can’t audit that mythos class! I had the same thing happen to me in another book I read recently; it had a college course that sounded so cool and something I would have loved to have taken in real life. Such a lit nerd.

  8. @Anachronist... *dreams* *sigh*

    @Nicole... Well, I don't want to spoil anything in the first book. So, I'm zipping the lip. ;D I think we all need this class!!

    @Jenny... I'll fight you for Vic. I think he'd LOVED that! ;D

    @Rummanah...Oh then you will LOVE this series!

    @Felicia... What did we do? *looks innocent* ;D Hurry!!

    @Mel... Oh I think you'll love the series. I know you love the author... *hint* ;D

    @Stephanie...I know!!! Where IS this academy? We needs to go!

  9. I read the short story in between 1 and 2 and liked it :) Though no wolf there, too bad, lol

  10. DUDE! I feel the same way about Logan, he makes me want to tear my hair our but I also love him. Vic is my main man! Loved the review!

    Oh and yes, we should totally start Team Vic club. He deserves love too!!

  11. Yay Team Vic!! Yeah... I still need to read this series, so I'll be on whatever team you are til I make my own decision! ;)

  12. Did you read these books in order? I'm in shock!

    *scribbles notes* Hottie to swoon over. Got it! ;)

  13. I so can't wait to read it. I hope I'll receive it this weekend. I keep hearing great stuff about it. It's nice that the others part of the book make you forget the slow part in the beginning.Thanks for the review!

  14. I actually haven't even read the first. I really do love Estep's adult series though. I should probably get on top of reading this one. Sounds pretty good.

  15. Awesomesauce! I'd love a Fenrir wolf myself. I wonder if Jennifer would give us some?

  16. Oh my freakin' gods!!! I sooo need to get this series. :) Thank you for the great, non-spoilerish, review. :D
