I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift. It’s called psychometry – that’s a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people’s memories off almost everything I touch, even guys.
My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy–to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don’t want to know the secrets my friend Paige is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school – Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren’t preparing us for the SATs, but to battle Reapers of Chaos. Now I have no friends and no idea how my gift fits in with all these warrior whiz kids. The only thing I do know is that my life is never, ever going to be the same. . .
As many of you know I have a love hate relationship with the mythos academy series. I have read almost all the books I believe I have two short stories left and one novel to be caught up until the newest book in the series is released. Any who back to my review. First frost by Jennifer Estep is a great short story. I’ve always wanted to know the back story for Gwen and what happened to her mom before you find out the truth in the series. Thankfully Jennifer Estep chose to write the story. So I couldn’t help but want to read this book. I love that Gwen has always been her sassy self and is a true comic book nerd always. I think my favorite part of this novel was the ending when you see that Logan aka Hot Spartan has been eyeing Gwen since the first day she stepped on to campus. In conclusion if you are a fan of the series you should pick it up well I guess download since it is only in Ebook format that I know of. Any ways It was a fun quick read and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
