You always hear that what other people think doesn’t matter but when it turns out that those other people are reapers, you better pay attention. One incident it can be a coincidence, but two in a day make you wonder doesn’t it.
Now in hopes of finding my own safety and shaking danger out way I am off to the school’s Winter Carnival, a place where students go to ski and party hard.
My weapons training hasn’t really progress and let’s face it you can’t have your own personal super hero come and save you all the time, no matter how hot the Spartan is.
Let’s hope the goddess Nike picked the right champion and that my magic doesn’t start playing games on me.
Here is the thing with Jennifer Estep, when I think I have her book all figured out there comes a game changer, which I love. The only problem is that she gets repetitive and that I have to wait all the way to the end for things to stop popping up and surprise me.
I love the characters, especially Gwen Frost, the main character. She has a good ethic and she may not be the brightest of the bunch but she is learning to trust other even when her magic has been keeping others at bay in fear of watching things she would rather not.
Either Tara Sands is lowering the sarcastic Veronica Mars vibe and playing more with her voice in this audio book or I am growing used to her style for this series, let’s hope it’s the first one.
It seems that Jennifer Estep is letting her secondary characters come out of the background and play a little more , not only that, she also teases you in this book with the idea that some of the characters that you wouldn’t have given a second glance have more layers and have secrets of their own. I hope this tendency continues, it would really help the world of Mythos Academy expand.
