Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Gwen is getting tired. She is tired of fighting the Reapers, she is tired of waiting for the next attack and she is tired of responsibility. She may be Nike’s Champion, but she just wants to be a girl. Now she has a secret she must keep from her friends and her Spartan boyfriend. She is destined to kill Loki. That is if he doesn’t kill her first. The final battle is staged when her grandmother is kidnapped and a ransom demand is given. The Powers that Were won’t negotiate, but Gwen is willing to do whatever it takes to rescue her grandmother, even give Loki the only thing that can restore him to full power.
Killer Frost is the sixth and final book in the Mythos Academy series. Gwen has developed from a naïve Gypsy girl to a fierce fighter and now she must pull from the strength and powers given to her as Nike’s Champion. Estep does reference many battles and situations from the previous books, but she does not spend a great deal of time reminding readers of all the nuances. This is a refreshing aspect of this young adult urban fantasy and if readers need these cues I recommend looking up book summaries as a reminder. This book does not disappoint with its constant action and developing story. Although future stories may come from this created world, the Second Chaos war comes to a satisfying conclusion. Whether the reader is happy with the ending depends on if they are rooting for Gwen or Loki!
