Author: Jennifer Estep
Release date: November 29, 2011
Publisher: Kensington Teen
Logan Quinn was trying to kill me. My Spartan classmate relentlessly pursued me, swinging his sword at me over and over again, the shining silver blade inching closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes practically glowed with the thrill of battle…
I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Academy, and I have no idea how I’m going to survive the rest of the semester. One day, I’m getting schooled in swordplay by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gorgeous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invisible archer in the Library of Antiquities decides to use me for target practice. And now, I find out that someone at the academy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword…
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the first book, Touch Of Frost, this review will contain spoilers.
A couple months ago I read Touch Of Frost and enjoyed it. Kiss Of Frost was so much better! I adored this book! Everything about this book was awesome and I can tell that I am going to love this series.
Gwen has changed very little since the end of the first book. She is still in love with Logan, still totally uncoordinated, and still very bad with weapons. On the other hand, her magic is growing and she is learning new ways to use it. Logan hasn’t changed much either. He is still with Savannah and still totally crushing on Gwen. He did change a little throughout the book though and I liked him better after that. Daphne and Carson were still their fun, quirky selves. Oliver is a new character and I liked him a lot (after I got past his BIG flaws.)
The plot was a lot more fast-paced than the first one. Things picked up very early on and I had a hard time putting this book down. In fact, the only time I did put it down was when I had to eat dinner. Nothing else was important enough to pull me away from this book. It was full of action, suspense, and some romance. =)
Overall, Kiss Of Frost exceeded my expectations. If you haven’t picked this one up yet, do it now! You won’t regret it.
