Killer Frost (Mythos Academy, #6)Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well, today marks the day we say goodbye to a great cast of characters. I have to admit I was hoping the series would continue with a different story arc outside of fighting the Reapers. It must be quite difficult to carry a story line for 6 books and keep the reader's interest. Jennifer Estep did a great job of that while we all waited with anticipation for the next book to see what happened next.

One of the best things about the Mythos Academy series was the growth of the characters as they tackled not only the fight against the Reapers of Chaos but also as they fought their own demons. In Killer Frost we learn so much more about Gwen Frost and we are introduced to new characters that I would not mind seeing in a novella or two in the future. But, one of the best things about this book is getting to see the culmination of Gwen and Logan's story and I was quite happy with it.

This story has the gang visiting another school that has students like those at the Mythos Academy with different strengths and skills and what is great is the development of Gwen's relationship with them. We also get to learn more about Gwen's family outside of what happened to her mom. This part of the book in my opinion is what makes the final book stand out and though there is a tough fight and everything might not have happened the way I would have liked Killer Frost has a great ending and all I could think when closing the book was, Satisfying!
