Synopsis: 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...
Thoughts: So first off... Thank you to Erica from The Book Cellar for this fantastic recommendation because I absolutely loved this book. It was everything I was expecting and more! Once I started I honestly couldn't get enough of this book. The world is amazing. Mythos Academy is amazing. The characters are all brilliant in their own way. I absolutely loved Gwen right from the start and her story is purely addicting.
So the romance part... yeah well there isn't too much. Well, I take that back. There is a good amount of romance I just think most of it happens between the secondary characters. Which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, I think it was a smart move on Jennifer's part to not have Gwen rush into a hot and heavy romance knowing there's so much more ahead. That being said there is still Carson, who I absolutely loved and of course our hero hunk-a-sexy-boy Logan. Unf, I love that spartan and want so much more of him! He's one of those super strong bad boys yet you know there's so much more lurking beneath his exterior. And plus, with a story so good who needs a strong story line? There's a kick-ass main character.
Overall this story just flows so perfectly. Touch Of Frost is one of those books where you just HAVE to know what's coming next. It's thrilling and mysterious yet at the same time there's so many laughs. It's one of those books where you love every character for different reasons. Take Daphne for example... I thought she was going to be one of those characters I was going to have to hate, yet I ended up loving her in the end. That being said, the ending was definitely intense. I read this book from beginning to end without stopping and instantly bought book two. Loved, loved, loved it!
