Favorite Character: It’s really hard to say, because the characters aren’t very well developed in this prequel. See my review of Kiss of Frost for more information. First Line: “‘Can I borrow your hairbrush?’” My Musings: This prequel really didn’t do it for me. The only thing that it did was tell me things that I had already pieced together over the course of the actual series. Some things that I read, I had sworn were the exact same that I read in the actual novels. Henceforth, I didn’t gain much from it. The, typical to Estep, was great, but there really wasn’t much of a plot. It was more of an extra explanation. Overall, it is not a necessary read in order to understand the series in more depth, and if you’ve already read the series, you don’t need to worry about reading this prequel.

Check out my review of First Frost (Mythos Academy #0.5) Favorite Quote(s): “‘Oh just tell the boy you bloody love him and be done with it,’ Vic growled. ‘This lovey-dovey stuff gives me heartburn.’” Favorite Character: Vic. His humor was extremely well welcomed in serious times, and his belief in Gwen is very inspiring. First Line: “‘If you guys don’t stop making out, I’m going to be sick.’” My Musings: Wow. I started this book yesterday, and putting it down to go to school was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Jennifer Estep has done it again. She wove together an intricate plot, complete with stellar characters and infallible action. The novel follows Gwen Frost as she evolves into become the Champion that Nike has chosen her to believe. She does this with the help of her friends: Daphne, Carson, and the ever swoon-worthy Logan Quinn. For starters, the book started off action packed. For some reason, that makes my views of a book that much better: who wants to start off reading boring stuff? Estep’s action was amplified by her writing: it was descriptive and realistic, nothing like the frou-frou totally out of this world stuff. Although the novel is based off of mythology and magic, it is done so in a believable way. The writing was totally captivating. I really enjoyed Estep’s characters once again: they are, honestly, normal day […]
