DARK FROST picks up a few days before winter break ends for the students of Mythos Academy. Gwen Frost, along with her best friend and valkyrie Daphne and Daphnie’s boyfriend Carson, are at a local mythological museum to work on their winter break project. While there, the museum is invaded by Reapers of Chaos who are searching for the Helheim Dagger.
The dark, chaotic and action-packed first chapters set the tone for the rest of the novel as Gwen tries to find the Helheim Dagger, figure out Reaper Girl’s true identity, and deal with her unlabeled relationship with Logan Quinn.
The novel is similar to the first two books of the series. It’s filled with action and drama of all kinds. It will grab you by the seat of your pants and not let go until the final pages.
Logan and Gwen. They’re on the rocks. Again. This time, it’s not just Logan who’s keeping them apart from each other. However, there is finally a resolution for those Gwegan (Lowen?) lovers.
Daphne. The Valkyrie sidekick has a lot of personal drama to deal with, which puts her friendship with Gwen at odds.
Loki’s baaaaaack. ‘Nuff said.
I will admit. I cried through the last 20% or so of the novel. Estep really taps into Gwen’s emotions. The darkness of this book is one of my favorite things about this book, though I think. Book 2 (Kiss of Frost) is my favorite in the series so far, but this is a close second. It’s hard to judge any of these separately, though. THEY ARE ALL SO GOOD.
My incoherence is getting the best of my review writing. :) So, here’s the gist. If you haven’t read this series yet, go out and get TOUCH OF FROST. If you’re already done with KISS OF FROST, pre-order DARK FROST.
