"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…."

In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
Okay the characters took a turn to crazyville. Not sure I'll get another one. MIght have to trade this one back. It was almost exactly the same as the first one, no real improvement. Save your money.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
The 2nd book was mainly about a continuation of the first book. Here you get to know more characters and learn new events.
Am not going to give anything away, but then its hard to write this review. Just if you liked the first book you will like this one too. what i liked here was when i thought i have finished the book it turned out that still another 2 hours left to finish.
The ending of this book was pretty well, you get answers for some questions, and so on
Its a good read. got the 3rd one already. and listening to it now while i'm writing this review.
as in the first story it is a good story but you know who the bad guy is from the first introduction. the problem is there are enough sub plots which keep your interest. I am getting the 3rd in the series to see if it gets any better if not I will not continue as it is not worth the expense.
Blogger, audiobook lover, and all around cool chic!
Gwen Frost, a Gypsy from the hood, is in trouble, again. After surviving her first attack by a reaper in Book One, Touch Of Frost, she now realizes that everything they have been teaching her at the Academy is not only true, but very real! Now that Gwen is ready to take her heritage seriously, she is knee deep in training at school. And then attempts on her life stir up old, bad memories. Will Gwen learn the truth behind the attacks before it's too late?!
In this next chapter of Gwen's life the story goes up about ten notches in the drama and action department! OMG! I was loving how Gwen tapped into her Gypsy magic and learned new things, it was amazing! The story was circled around the Winter Carnival. The students get to go to a ski resort every year and join the other Mythos Schools around the country and party, and Gwen wasn't having it until her bestie, Daphne, talked her into it. Gwen has been heart broken over the rejection from Logan. She didn't want to be around him and his girlfriend who are sucking face all the time, yuck! But fate had other plans for the young Gypsy Girl and once she met Preston, all bets were off. Preston was a scrumptious distraction from the attempts on her life until she was swept away in a horrific avalanche!
Kiss Of Frost was a book of revelations. Gwen learns more about her mother's past and her destiny as Nike's champion. Gwen also stumbles upon a new ability she is able to tap into with her pyschometry that makes her fighting skills ten fold. Knowing Gwen was Nike's champion, you kinda had to see her abilities increase because just having pyschometry was not really a true warriors weapon. I mean come on, it's neither a fighting skill nor a weapon! Along with the new magics comes an unexpected new friendship. Oliver, one of Logan's best friends, began as an enemy and turned in to really good friend. I truly wasn't expecting it, and in fact it made me all tingly inside when they bonded. I really love how Gwen's story has evolved, and I look forward to her next challenge in Book 3, Dark Frost!
Tara Sands narrates for Jennifer in her Mythos Series. Tara has an excellent range of voices for this book, and she gives the story such life. The challenging role, especially in a YA setting has not gone defeated by Tara. Tara does an excellent job with entertaining me, and giving the proper tone to each character in the story. ~5 Fangs!
Idea is great! Redundancy and over explanation, and even far too many long monologues detracted from the storyline.
Again... I love the idea and characters, just a little rough in the writing area. (And vocal performance with odd inflections and cadence of speech.)

Tara Sands is an excellent narrator. She adds dimensions to the story that are not present in the written word. I have already read the whole series and the books get better as the series progresses. I look forward to the next audible book. Happy Listening!
Love the book it just repeats things way to often. You could read the second book without reading the first because it recaps the first way to often.
I've been a fan of this writer from the spider series which I love. I find the story a little obvious, but the back story is getting really good so I will keep listening for now.
Tell us about yourself!I have been reading constantly threw audio books sense a verry small age and have never lost the love of them.
I fell inlove with the first book and now can not wait to get started on book two. this is a must read with action, a continued romance and plenty of secrets. if you love action and thrills than this is for you but at the same time the maine character is still growing and discoverying herself and how to use her amazing powers. it is a jerney which is brought even more to life by a great narrator so go on and read it. yes right now!
