Young Adult Review – Killer Frost


Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep


Review by Kelsey O.


Here it is. The final installment in Jennifer Estep’s Mythos Academy series *sob*. I won’t go all dramatic or give away any spoilers. I do have to say watching Gwen Frost grow from book one until now, has been an exciting adventure. She started out shy and kind of a loner and has grown into a strong and confident woman with a great group of loyal friends surrounding her.

Because of this loyalty, these friends (both current and from the past) play a pivotal role in this final chapter. As always with Estep’s writing, the action starts right away and never lets up until the end. There are curveballs thrown in to keep the reader on their toes. We also learn the true identity of a certain someone that works in the library.

The use of mythology has been impeccable throughout the series. The way Estep weaves the history into the storyline is flawless. Now, I am sure you’re wondering why I only gave it a four rating. The reason is because of the repetition that occurs quite a lot (and not in just this book). It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but there were times that I felt the story could move a bit faster.

Entertaining and action packed this final goodbye to Mythos Academy ended just the way it should have. For anyone that hasn’t started this YA series, it is worth your time. For those that have been reading through the series, you won’t be disappointed.
