Overview

New school year, same old problems . . .

At Mythos Academy, everyone knows exactly who I am: Rory Forseti, Spartan girl and the daughter of Reapers.

Even though I fought alongside my cousin Gwen Frost to save the mythological world from Loki and his evil Reapers of Chaos, I'm still the most hated girl at the academy because of all the horrible things my parents did. I had hoped that this school year would be different, but the other kids just won't let me forget about my parents.

But something strange is going on at the Colorado academy. First, I run into a Viking guy who dislikes me more than most. Then I notice some odd artifacts in the Library of Antiquities. And worst of all, I start hearing rumors about a new group of Reapers who can summon mythological monsters.

I might be the most hated girl at Mythos Academy, but I'm also the only one who can save it . . .

Jennifer Estep has done it again. Spartan Heart features a girl MC who is kind and badass. Rory is an incredible role model, full of heart and spark and attitude. Jennifer does an amazing job with summarizing what happened at the end of the Mythos Academy series and her mentions of Gwen are always on point. She makes us love both girls equally, and the world building is outstanding, as always. I couldn't be happier to be immersed in this world once more, and Rory brings a new light that I didn't know was missing. The plot twists are even better in this book, and I just couldn't love it more than I already do. Rory is the character of my heart, the world is dreamy for me, and the writing hasn't been better. If I could give this book a million stars, I would, but sadly, they limit us to 5. If you like mythology, badass heroine and cast, and YA, then this is the book for you. Note: You don't need to have read the Mythos Academy series before you read Spartan Heart, because Jennifer sums it up for us, but why wouldn't you read that marvelous series, too?

What a great new series! I loved this book and can't wait for the next. I think I've read all of Esteps books and don't have one bad thing to say about them. A fantastic writer with amazing creativity, keep it up!

I’ve loved Rory since she was first introduced in the Mythos Academy series, and this book definitely does her justice. The book is a fresh look on the Mythos Academy universe and a super fun read.

Spartan Heart by Jennifer Estep is the 1st book in her new Mythos Academy: Colorado series, which is a spinoff of her original Mythos Academy series. I really did enjoy the Mythos Academy series and Gwen Frost. I looked forward to reading Spartan Heart, and I am happy to say I enjoyed the start of this series. Rory Forseti, whom we met in the original Mythos Academy series, is Gwen’s cousin and our heroine in this series. Rory, who helped Gwen and her gang defeat Loki, and now is attending school at Mythos Academy, Colorado. Rory dreads going back to school, especially since her deceased mother and father were discovered to be Reapers. As we know, Reapers are bad and evil, bent on destroying humans, and the Protectorate (who protect humans and dangerous artifacts). Rory is uncomfortable at school, as everyone looks down on her because of the sins of her parents. Rory is a Spartan (warrior extraordinaire), and in a short time, she is using her skills to kill over creatures that the Reapers created using a stolen scepter artifact. Rory is than asked to join the Midgard team (part of the Protectorate) and help find whoever is in charge of the Reapers now, and get back the artifact. Some of her new teammates do not trust her, but once she helps save them, Rory will earn their respect and trust. I really like her teammates, Ian, Zoe, Mateo, Takeda & Rachel. Most of all I absolutely loved the Gryphons (especially Brono the baby gryphon), whom Rory bonded with when she helped Gwen; and Babs, the talking sword. What follows is an exciting, action filled adventure that also has some surprises for Rory. There is also a slow built romance between Rory and Ian that I expect we will see more of in future books. Besides some of the great characters in this book, there are also some good villains; such as Lance, Drake and the Reaper leader. I loved being able to see Gwen Frost again, nearer to the end. Nice touch by Estep. If you like Urban Fantasy, with mythology, action, excitement, a number of twists and surprises, and a wonderful young heroine; look no further then Mythos Academy, Colorado. Spartan Heart was a wonderful enjoyable read, and Jennifer Estep continues to write these books so well, keeping us thoroughly entertained. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
