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.
I love the way Jennifer Estep tied up this series.
When I first read TOUCH OF FROST, I was convinced that no book in the rest of the series could be better than it. For books 2-5, that fact remained true. And then came KILLER FROST.
Even without reading all of the books in this series, you can get a good grasp for the characters and what’s gone on, which is great–but reading this series is truly an experience. The fantasy and the characters inside the world Estep has created is amazing. I love the way that I can really see how the characters have grown from the very first book in this series to KILLER FROST as well. Through out the books, readers really get a grasp for the motivations, weaknesses and strengths of Gwen. Initally, in the first book, I hadn’t appreciated the characters as much so it was a relief to find I liked them a lot more. I also really enjoy the differences to Gwen’s voice as a character.
While TOUCH OF FROST was humorous and fun, it was a great debut to introduce people to Gwen. I thought it was really important as I was starting KILLER FROST that Estep address the problems and emotional baggage that came with the roller coaster of things Gwen had to deal with.
Overall, the plot of KILLER FROST was pretty good. I did think that the beginning was slower then usual and took me longer to get into, but as time went on I could feel the pace get slower or faster as different events occurred. Things do get better, and while I feel that the ending could’ve been stronger, Estep continues in this book with the fantasy that I loved so much about her books and I was entertained. I hope to see more from Jennifer Estep in the future. 3 stars.
