Synopysis: Touch of Frost: My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy; a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why; especially since I should have been the one who died... - goodreads.com
                   Kiss of Frost: I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Acad­emy, and I have no idea how I’m going to sur­vive the rest of the semes­ter. One day, I’m get­ting schooled in sword­play by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gor­geous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invis­i­ble archer in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties decides to use me for tar­get prac­tice. And now, I find out that some­one at the acad­emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword... - goodreads.com
                   Dark Frost: I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again. - goodreads.com

Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?

It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.

I normally don't really like books with a lot of mythology in them but I gave these books a chance and I enjoyed every second of them! I loved them that much that these books are some of my favourites! I loved all of the characters and also the plots of these books were well thought out and paced amazingly! Gwen Frost is the main protagonist and I thought that she was amazing! I loved her enthusiasm and her passion! Gwen has the magic of psychometry and she think that it is the most boring kind of magic as everyone else are Spartans or werewolf's but as Gwen learns more about her magic from her gran she soon learns that her magic is SO much more than boring. Logan Quinn is the romantic interest of Gwen and I really liked him as well! He was protective of Gwen and he was so sweet! There isn't really a lot of romance in these books as they focus a lot on mythology but there are relationship developments which could turn into romance in future books. I loved the plots of these book as they were just so interesting and I felt myself actually wonder who the killer was or can Gwen really trust this person and I think that this is the way that a book should be! The plots also left you begging for the next book! I also loved the secondary characters as they were absolutely necessary as they added a lot to the mysteries of these books. My favourite book of this series so far is Kiss of Frost as I loved the plot to the book and also the love triangle as a jealous Logan will really make you swoon! But I also loved the action scene at the beginning and during Dark Frost. I cannot wait until the next book, Crimson Frost to see Gwen and Logan's relationship progress as I absolutely love them as a couple and also to see what happens to Gwen after the ending of Dark Frost! I also love the covers!
