Kurzbeschreibung

I've battled the Reapers of Chaos before—and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it's going to be a fight to the death. . .most likely mine.

Yeah, I've got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic, and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side in Logan freaking Quinn, but I'm no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike's Champion, but at heart, I'm still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.

Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good . . . or I am.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein perfektes Ende 6. März 2014
Von kleinesd
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
für eine perfekte Geschichte. Ich habe es geliebt diese Geschichte zu lesen und mit Gwen zu lachen, zu weinen, sich zu ärgern und mitzufiebern. Jennifer Estep hat es geschafft micht von der allerersten bis zur letzten Seite zu fesseln.
Killer Frost ist der fulminante Abschluß einer Reise von der grauen Maus zum Champion.
Schade, dass diese Geschichte hier endet. Aber nach diesem Buch gibt es auch nicht mehr zu schreiben :)
Ich werde die Reihe sicherlich noch öfters lesen!

I loved the Finale of the series. Like, I'm sad that the story is finished, but I think this was the perfect way to end it. Mythos Academy is one of my favorite series. I hope everybody enjoyed Mythos Academy as much as I did.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I couldn’t be more satisfied with this series finale! 28. Februar 2014
Von RabidReads - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
KILLER FROST has everything you could possibly want in a series finale; from the suspenseful build-up, to the end all battle, to every character’s HEA. I loved how Jennifer Estep concluded MYTHOS ACADEMY, and I’m positive that fellow fans of Gwen Frost will agree.

This installment is beautifully paced with just the right amount of pages allotted to the story set-up, final showdown, and tying up loose ends. I expected the last fight between Gwen, the pantheon, the reapers and Loki to be epic, and Estep certainly delivered. She took her time detailing every kick, swing, and dodge which transformed this novel’s closing chapters into a live action brawl that unfolded inside my head. I loved that Gwen put everything she has learned about the artifacts from working at the Library of Antiquities to good use to help her defeat the trickster god; it added meaning to her journey thus far and established clear links to all of the previous books.

Estep ensures that every character, secondary and main alike, has a role to play in this series conclusion. Logan, Daphne, Carson, Oliver, Alexie, Metis, Nickamedes, Grandma Frost, Rory, Rachel, Nyx, and Vic… they are all by Gwen’s side fighting the good fight. I liked how practically every protagonist got their own version of a HEA; except for Rory—do I sense a possible spin-off in the future? For several installments now, I’ve been speculating about who Raven really is, and what’s the purpose of the stone statues, and this novel answers those questions too. I was blown away by the completeness of this story; I don’t think Jennifer Estep missed a single thing!

Gwen doesn’t have it easy in KILLER FROST; she’s overly paranoid about reaper attacks, and has the weight of the world on her shoulders thanks to the added pressure of knowing that she’s the one who’s supposed to kill Loki. Then her grandmother gets kidnapped, and she’s forced to choose between one life and many. Even though the ending may give you heart failure, I have to hand it to Gwen because she really does give it her all and proves herself worthy of being called Nike’s champion. Frost is no longer “that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about” but a bona fide heroine who should be proud of how far she’s come, and hold her head up high.

I will miss Gwen Frost and her crew of misfits, but as a reader, I couldn’t be more satisfied with this series finale. Thank you Jennifer Estep for dotting all your i’s and crossing all your t’s; KILLER FROST is a masterpiece and I can’t wait to see where your writing is going to take you next.

The story was excellently written like usual. The sentences just flow into the next and before you know it the book is done.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Shaky start led to a satisfying ending 17. April 2014
Von Kathy Davie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Sixth and last in the Mythos Academy urban fantasy series for Young Adults and revolving around Gwen Frost, Nike's champion.

My Take
Although this was very realistic with Gwen obsessing over the next Reaper attack, it was wearing to read with the first half feeling as if Estep was being lazy and the last half being a great improvement.

The first part was so melodramatic and too predictable with Linus insisting on the "trap" and Gwen going behind everyone's backs. That bit about stopping off at the airport to look over a bunch of artifacts when the Reaper threat was so great? Thinking they're safe simply because they're near the school? Why didn't they have people protecting Grandma Frost? I mean, duhhh… It's been a fun series, and it's too bad that Estep didn't make that extra bit of effort to twist the whole story and not just the last half.

Now was not the time to show any weakness? WTF? The Reapers already know how Gwen feels about her grandma. What other weakness is there??

Although, I did like the trap Gwen set later in the story! Very clever. And the final battle and the final death are truly tense and dramatic.

It was cute that Estep brought Rory and the Eir gryphons in on the final battles. Nice way to round things off.

Some nice goodbyes in here as well as a look through the fluttering pages of the future.

The Story
It's a bittersweet reunion between Gwen and Logan in the days leading up to the Valentine's Day dance. She loves him as he is, and he believes he doesn't deserve her, not after events in Crimson Frost , 4.

Logan's dad simply makes things worse with his singleminded pursuit and greed for power.

The Characters
Gwen Frost is Nike's Champion and a Gypsy with a gift for psychometry, fated to kill Loki, or die. Vic is her talking sword. Nyx is the Fenrir pup she saved. Grandma Frost is a former Champion with the ability to see the future. Rory Forsetti is Gwen's newfound cousin who goes to the Colorado branch of Mythos Academy, and Rachel Maddox is her aunt (see Midnight Frost , 5).

Logan Quinn is a Spartan and Gwen's reluctant boyfriend. Daphne is her Valkyrie best friend who is dating Carson Callahan, the Celtic band geek, who carries the Horn of Roland. Alexei Sokokov, Gwen's bodyguard, is Sergei's son. Oliver Hector, a Spartan and one of Logan's best friends, is Alexi's boyfriend. Aiko is a Ninja and a Protectorate member who also guards Gwen.

Mythos Academy
Fellow students who chose to stay include Morgan McDougall, a Valkyrie; Kenzie Tanaka, another Spartan friend of Logan's; Talia Pizarro is Tanaka's Amazon girlfriend; Savannah Warren, Logan's Amazon ex-girlfriend; and, Doug is her new boyfriend, a Viking.

The instructors include Professor Aurora Metis, who was Gwen's mother's friend and is now Gwen's mentor; she's also Athena's Champion. Nickamedes is the now-crippled librarian who has been so mean to Gwen. Coach Ajax is in charge of their training. Raven is an old woman who works at the school.

Linus Quinn is Logan's father and head of the Protectorate, the police force for the mythological world. Sergei Sokolov, a Bogatyr warrior, and Inari Sato are his friends and fellow members of the Protectorate.

The Reapers
Agrona Quinn was Logan's stepmother and is the head of the Reapers. Vivian Holler is Loki's Champion and carries the sword, Lucretia. The Black rocs provide the Reapers with easy getaways.

Nike is the Greek goddess of victory. Mythos Academy is a boarding school for the children of ancient mythological warriors: Amazons, Spartans, Romans, Vikings, and Valkyries. Eir is the Norse goddess of healing and mercy who gave Gwen the leaves. Sol is the Norse goddess of the sun.

Loki is the god of trickery and is worshipped by the Reapers. Sigyn is his wife, the goddess of devotion.

The Cover
The cover is an intense Gwen crouching in a ground fog, the red roiling clouds of an angry sky behind her.

The title is all about Gwen, for she's the Killer Frost it all depends upon.

Overall Rating: 4.25
Story Rating: 4.00
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Oh Mythos Academy I will miss you! Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep was a fitting end to an enjoyable series :)

Read It File It Review: I really enjoyed my time spent at Mythos Academy and think Jennifer did an excellent job with the last book. All the elements and people I loved made an appearance. She also gave us hope at the end that she might not be done with Rory which made me smile. Overall this was a satisfying ending to a series that I really enjoyed.

Quick Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Tara Sands / Length: 9 hrs and 45 mins

I listened to all but one of the series on audio. I think each book Tara grew on me and became more of the characters. I really enjoyed her narration and would recommend giving these a go on audio!

Final Thoughts: Bye Mythos Academy! May your future calls to champion be equally epic off the page.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Way to End the Series! 6. April 2014

Here it is. The final installment in Jennifer Estep’s Mythos Academy series *sob*. I won’t go all dramatic or give away any spoilers. I do have to say watching Gwen Frost grow from book one until now, has been an exciting adventure. She started out shy and kind of a loner and has grown into a strong and confident woman with a great group of loyal friends surrounding her.

Because of this loyalty, these friends (both current and from the past) play a pivotal role in this final chapter. As always with Estep’s writing, the action starts right away and never lets up until the end. There are curve balls thrown in to keep the readers on their toes. We also learn the true identity of a certain someone that works in the library.

The use of mythology has been impeccable throughout the series. The way Estep weaves the history into the storyline is flawless. Now, I am sure you’re wondering why I only gave it a four rating. The reason is because of the repetition that occurs quite a lot (and not in just this book). It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but there were times that I felt the story could move a bit faster.

Entertaining and action packed this final goodbye to Mythos Academy ended just the way it should have. For anyone that hasn’t started this YA series, it is worth your time. For those that have been reading through the series, you won’t be disappointed.
