Finally! An Academy for Mythical Warriors
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. . .
“Come inside and all will be revealed”
Originally what caught my interest was that this book reminded me of Vampire Academy except mythical creatures instead of vampires. I was not disappointed. From the first page this author caught my attention and I was eager to learn more about Gwen Frost, Mythos Academy, Daphne, and Spartan-Licious “Logan freaking Quinn”
Meet Gwen Frost, she’s a gypsy, an outcast, a nerd and a comic book fanatic. She’s one of my new favorite protagonist! She’s also witty, charming, fun loving, emphatic and smart.
“So,” the Valkyrie said, cracking open the lid of her Perrier. “This is where you eat lunch. All the way in the back here. What are you? A vampire who’s afraid of sunlight or something?”
Vampires? Were vampires real too? I wondered but I didn’t want to look stupid and ask, especially since I didn’t know what Daphne was doing here in the first place.
“Yeah,” I said in a guarded voice. “You caught me. I’ve got this whole superhero thing going on, so I sit way back here to keep the paparazzi and rabid fans at bay.”
Since tragedy struck at home six months ago she’s been uprooted to Mythos Academy where Gwen finds herself surrounded by mythical warriors of all types. Spartans, Romans, Valkyrie, Amazons and she’s the lonely new Gypsy on the block. As you learn these whiz kids ferociously powerful warrior gifts are compatible with the mythical creatures in Clash Of The Titans whereas Gwen’s gift of Psychometry appears to be no match for their talent and skills, or so it may seem.
Psychometry is the ability to touch someone and read their emotions, thoughts, interests and deepest dark secrets. she’s quickly labelled as a “freak”, “a nobody”, but she easily proves to herself that she’s “not a nobody.”
Gwen’s new unlikely friend a rich, popular Valkyrie Daphne was an excitingly charismatic supporting character.
“Let me walk you to your room,”Logan offered in a helpful voice. “You, me and the Gypsy girl could have our own bonfire tonight.” Daphne and I stared at eachother. I rolled my eyes while Daphne sniffed.
“Oh please,”she scoffed. “Like I need a guy to protect me. I’m a Valkyrie, remember? I could pick you up and break your back over my knee, Spartan. Like you were a piñata.”
“Kinky,” Logan said, smiling at her. “I like it.”
Overall this book is an easy 5 stars because I LOVED it! I’m starting the next book Kiss Of Frost immediately. I’m eagerly looking forward to catching up with Gwen’s life at Mythos Academy now that she’s discovered her true Gypsy heritage while shes learning her inherited magical powers, as well as Daphne, and of course
The Spartan-Licious “Logan freaking Quinn”
