"A young adult read for the Greek myth lovers"

Gwen Frost comes from a long history of gypsies. Being a gypsy comes with a special power. Gwen's power is psychometry which allows her to see someone's or something's history and secrets just by touching them. Gwen is an outsider at Mythos Academy- a school for those who are warriors and have powers passed down to them through the Greek myths. When a murder happens at the academy everyone acts as if it is no big deal, it's happened before and it will happen again, they're used to it. But this is something new for Gwen. She doesn't understand why no one cares or why she was left to live since she was a witness to the murder. Gwen decides she is going to use her powers to figure out who killed her classmate and maybe figure out why she is at Mythos Academy when she is so different from all the other students.

TOUCH OF FROST is filled with mystery at every flip of the page and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a fun read that kept the pages turning to try and figure out what would happen next. Jennifer Estep used romance, fighting, and teen drama to make this book interesting for all. With characters as Spartans, Valkyries, Amazons, gods, goddesses, and mythical creatures the Greek myths were brought to life.

Reading this book was like remembering high school, only one that contains myths and magic. You have your mean girls, jocks, dorks, and outsiders. This allowed the reader to be able to relate to the main character, Gwen. Jennifer Estep did an excellent job in capturing Gwen's emotions and making the story come to life.

Overall, I would recommend reading this book. It was a fun, easy read and perfect for anyone who likes books that relate to Greek myths.

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 …
