Midnight Frost is the 5th book in the Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep. There will be spoilers in this review.
“Here we go again …
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 …”
Out of the two predictions that I had made prior to reading the book, neither of them came true. Which leaves me somewhat bummed, but otherwise happy. ‘Cause then I can’t truly predict books, which is great.
There were a few times that I was laughing quite a bit while reading this. I was also smiling because Gwen’s friends are great and exactly what the definition of a friend should be.
I woke up early one morning and read this one faster than I ever thought I would — or could, for that matter.
I have to say that it seems as though the stakes are taken up a notch in this book. I realize that with each book, the “notch” so-to-speak is turned a up a little. I mean, with each instalment, it seems as though Gwen is always finding herself in trouble, always finding herself in the middle of a fight she doesn’t want to be in. Midnight Frost is no exception. However, this leads me to my next point…
Gwen just proves that she has the worst of luck. …And that she literally makes friends in the weirdest of places, with the most unlikely of faces– these new friends of hers though will be there for her for the rest of her life…that I could easily tell.
A certain someone has returned, and I mean, it’s obvious that they would; they’re an important part of the story. But still, there’s a part of me that had hoped there’d be more tension, but I’m also glad that there wasn’t.
I’m also REALLY WORRIED FOR THE LAST book in this SERIES, how did this all go by so quickly. I mean, I’ve literally read this series within a better part of a month.
I ended up giving Midnight Frost 3 of 5 stars on Goodreads.
