I finished the book within hours of buying it. The plot is exciting and it is an easy ready, however,the author repeats herself a lot. There are quite a few paragraphs and at times even pages that are just not necessary and detract from the plot. I don't need to be reminded every couple chapters how her gift works or how her mom died. Maybe reading the books back to back made this all too apparent. If you can overlook this then it will be an enjoyable read.

    Nice YA story

    Book two in Jennifer Estep's Mythos Academy series picks up a few weeks after the events of the first book (Touch of Frost). Do not attempt to read Kiss of Frost until you read book one. The story is geared toward young adults and is told from Gwen's POV.

    More intriguing to me than the overall story line of good versus evil, is the story of a girl becoming a woman. Learning to make decisions and to trust in herself. Falling in love and speaking her mind. Simply becoming secure with herself as a whole. All important parts which make up the journey to womanhood. Unfortunately, as most of us know, that is a path full of heartache. I felt Gwen's pain at seeing her crush with another girl. The insecurity, sadness and confusion that filled her as she speculated on the reasons she wasn't the girl for Logan.

    Secrets come out in the latest release in Estep's Mythos Academy series. Kiss of Frost is a quick read filled with various individuals from mythology. Remember, this book is written for a young adult audience. Don't be surprised when you correctly guess the villain's identity and at least one of the secrets kept in the book. It does nothing to detract from the story. As a matter of fact I've placed Kiss of Frost in my daughter's room in hopes that she like it just as much as I did. Some people may not like: scenes which revolve around teens drinking and making out. Neither bothered me, but hey, to each her own.

    I don't know..

    This is an alright read, i'm just not diggin' all the in'between time of dialogue that the author spends detailing everything..&i know i know they're suppose to do that but most try to make it entertaining & not two, three pages of poppycock explanations.
    The only thing that interests me is whether or not her & chippie end up together.!
