Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy, #1)

Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy, #1) - Jennifer Estep There are aspects* to Jennifer Estep's writing that rub me the wrong way, but aside from that, I enjoyed this book. I read the prequel, First Frost last night, so I knew about Gwen's powers going into this one. While there are an extreme amount of similarities with Harry Potter's Hogwarts, the different mythology in Estep's Mythos Academy cancels much of that out. I like the characters and the fact that, though they are young adults, they act like it. By that I mean, they have sex, they cuss, some smoke, some steal ... they have real qualities in addition to those found only in mythology. I look forward to reading more of this series.[* Biggest complaint is the constant repetition of certain words and phrases]Rating: 3.5-4★
