Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Frost

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep.

 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.

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.
(Summary by Good Reads)

I've been remiss, and haven't reviewed the first two books in this series. I have to say that I LOVED them. Super funny and action-y, Gwen is an incredible protagonist and this isn't a typical boarding school supernatural romance series. I can't wait for it to come out.

Dark Frost is the third in the Mythos Academy series, it comes out May 29th.


  1. I still have to read the first book, but I have read the prequel novella and am curious about the rest of the series. Nice pick! :)

  3. I believe that Netgalley had this at one point as well. I love the series to pieces. Great haul.


    1. I saw that, and if I remember correctly I checked it out but either didn't get there in time or the publisher said I needed 1000 followers to request it. Blargh.

  4. I've been meaning to start reading this series - I love the cover. I didn't realize it was written in the first person - I kind of like that.

  5. I really just need to *start* this series, it sounds SO good!!! May 29th... I think I have time to catch up ;)

    My WOW:

    1. Yes, yes you do need to start this series. Though they're super addicted so I would recommend reading it close to publication date. ;)

  6. Great pick! I can't wait for this one the Mythos Academy series! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW earlier.

  7. I've heard great things about this series!! I hope you enjoy this when it comes out!

  8. I haven't read any of the books in this series, though it's good to hear that you liked them so much! I'll have to check them out. (Oh how I love discovering series that already have several published, because it means I can devour more in one sitting!) What set them apart from other Paranormal Boarding school books for you!

    Thanks for the post! Feel free to stop by and check out my WoW!

  9. Dark Frost is my favorite Mythos Academy book so far, hands down. The characters were better written this time around. They had so much more depth than in the previous books. Gwen's conflict over her new powers was heart breaking. You could feel her inner turmoil over her decisions. The plot was also more developed. The door was left wide open for the next book, and I can only imagine what is going to happen.
