Touch of Frost by: Jennifer Estep

Publication Date: August 2011

Overview: 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. . .

My thoughts: I found this series at my new location. It's one that drew my in by the cover (you know that old saying"Never Judge a Book by it's Cover") so I picked it up. And I was greatly surprised. I couldn't put it down. So much so that I made my cousin go back to the library the next day and picked up the rest of the series (the library had).
Gwen is the poor girl that has been made to go to a school for special kids, not special ed. It's such a change for her one that genuinely rocks her world. And makes her see more then she ever has before. She is slowly making friends, but make a heck of a lot of enemies as well. She uses her gift for good, but also charges for it. And I would too. 
I'm pissed with Logan at the beginning but that he steps up and helps in the end make me love him. The sound of him is quite something too. You would think saving the school from the evil Reapers would make her something of a hero but the teachers keep it under wraps. And you would think saving a girls life would make them great friends, but sadly not. 

My rating: 5 stars
Up Next: Kiss of Frost
