Bookish Deal: Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep and sad news

Touch of Frost, the first in the Mythos Academy series is on sale until 3/25 for $2.99! So, if you have been wanting to read this great series, now is the time to start!

Just go here:

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...
Btw, I also have some sad news. A UF series I LOVE is not being picked up. I'm SO bummed! It's the Charlie Madigan series by Kelly Gay. This is such a great series with great characters (like Charlie who is a great mom which you rarely see anymore) and even a lovable hellhound. The world building is superb and you do have a swoony character in Hank. This series really is SO good and I think that everyone should read it.
Pick up the books in the series:

  1. *sobs* It was sooo sad! Charlie!!!!!!

  2. Oh no! Now I feel so bad I haven't started reading The Better Part of Darkness yet!!! I will correct that next month - promise!!

  3. oh nooooooooo I want more charlie!!!!! I'm so sad! It's not possible!

  4. She's not getting her series picked up?!? That REALLY sucks! Maybe she'll go the self-publishing route instead and keep her series going. That'd be cool!

  5. YEah for the Mythos Academy. Love that seires. Oh oh so sorry to hear abou the other series getting dumped. I think I have the first book on my kindle. I hope someone else picks it up or that she can self pub. I think she has enough of an audience that it would be fine. It is wonderful that you are supporthing her.

  6. Oh, no! I'm so sad about Charlie Madigan too! While I didn't really love the last book, I did adore the series overall and this news makes me so sad! I really expected another one.

  7. I'm so excited to hear Touch of Frost is on sale because I've been dying to read the Mythos Academy, and this is the perfect excuse to start it. Thanks for the heads up! :-)

    And bummer about the Charlie Madigan series. I had never heard of it until today, but I just checked it out on Goodreads and it sounds fab. Hopefully self pubbing is still an option?

  8. Wow just when I bought the series, it has been terminated. I hate it when that happens. I have read nothing but great reviews about it.

  9. I definitely think it's time for a little Mythos Academy re-read. It's been a while since I've read the earlier books and it's always fun to go back and start at the beginning. Huge bummer on the Kelly Gay series! It's a punch to the gut when a beloved series doesn't get picked up...hopefully she'll try self-publishing the remaining books if she's unable to find another publisher.

  10. I do want to read Touch of Frost at some point! It sounds great. That's terrible about the series not getting picked up for more. I hate when great books/authors aren't given the credit and promo they deserve.


  11. That is so sad to hear about Kelly. I really enjoy Charlies books. *sigh* And thanks for sharing about Frost. :)
