Killer Frost (Mythos Academy #6) by Jennifer Estep
Goodreads Summary: 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.
My Review: This conclusion to a series full of magic, mythology, action, drama, and romance was bittersweet. I was all too eager to see what Estep had in store for the last book in the Mythos Academy series but at the same time I didn’t want it to end.
I can definitely say this book was my absolute favorite and I know I have said that about every one but that’s only because they just kept getting better. This book had the most action because everything with Loki, the ultimate evil in the world, came down to a huge war as anticipated. There wasn’t really a subplot in this book which I enjoyed because everything was focused on the main issue at hand. I love battle scenes when they are done well and those in this finale did not disappoint! The final fight was epic and there was a twist that I didn’t see coming. It went really well with the book and it made so many thins come together and it was a bit too Harry Potterish to be completely unique, but I still loved it!
The romance was never really developed in any of the books. I want to love Logan but I just didn’t find myself connected to him or any of the other characters (besides the main character) as I have in other books. This really disappointed me because there was so much potential but there were too many romantic struggles and so much frustration for there to be good romance.
There isn’t much else I cannot talk about without giving away major spoilers, but I really did love the ending! Everything came together and every subplot was concluded beautifully, as was the main plot and it did end romantically (I won’t say between which couples) even though the book didn’t have as much romance as I would have liked. This series was overall pretty amazing and I am really glad I stumbled across it on goodreads. It isn’t one of my all-time favorites but I would recommend it to people who like action, mythology, and a touch of romance.
