Here we go again …Oh another installment in the Mythos Academy series! Ah... but *puts thinking cap on* *worries that it doesn't fit* *shrugs* how do I talk about the book so I don't spoil anything for those that still need to read book 1? I know! Insist that everyone read all 4 books so I can talk freely. That works, right? LOL
Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.
As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there…
In this book I admit I was worried that Gwen might end up whining a bit more than would be warranted despite the fact that she had several good reasons in the past to whine. However, Gwen never disappoints me in this regard and always knows how to get her head on straight when it is needed. Again I am happy we have an intelligent and kick arse heroine to lead us through the Chaos Wars.
The only tiny spoilerish (only if you haven't read the other books) tid bit I will let loose is about Logan. I was worried I was going to go back to the love/hate/love/hate relationship we had in the past. While I won't say if we achieved backward book relationship status or not, but I will say that this part is satisfying. I was worried we might have to go through another book to find out if Gwen would get her answer about Logan. We get one here.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. My biggest complaint is that I don't have the next book in my hot little hands right now. Well, that and I don't have a fenrir wolf next to me (my pups oddly disagree...). Yes, I LOVE the mythical creatures in this book. I hope for more insights into these creatures as the books continue.
Come back tomorrow for an excerpt of this book and a chance at a giveaway!
