Waiting on Wednesday: Touch of Frost

Waiting on Wednesday is hosting by Jill at Breaking the Spine




Book: Touch of Frost (Mythos Academy #1) - Jennifer Estep
Release Date: July 26th, 2011
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher:  Kensington Publishing Corporation
Description: 
My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Acad­emy — a school of myths, magic and war­rior whiz kids, where even the lowli­est geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spar­tan guy in school, also hap­pens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jas­mine Ash­ton was mur­dered in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties. Then, some­one stole the Bowl of Tears, a mag­i­cal arti­fact that can be used to bring about the sec­ond Chaos War. You know, death, destruc­tion and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m deter­mined to find out who killed Jas­mine and why – espe­cially since I should have been the one who died..

I love Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassin series and I cannot wait to see what she does with a young adult book. On her website, Jennifer says that she was inspired by the movie 300 and the TV show Veronica Mars. Now, hold the phone everybody - she had me hooked right there. A mixture of the crazy ass Spartans the my favorite female television character of all time.. sounds epic to me :) You can read the first two chapter of Touch of Frost at Jennifer's website.

I haven't read any of Jennifer's books but this one sounds really really gorgeous. And that summary's definitely intriguing. Great WoW pick! I had this book featured on my own WoW a few weeks ago. :)

The Elemental Assassin series is one of my favs - can't wait for Tangled Threads. Definitely going to check out her YA series - she had me at the mention of Veronica Mars.

Jennifer Estep is totally awesome anyway, but the idea that she's decided to write a book that's inspired by Veronica Mars and 300? That's, like, a dream come true. This is one author I'm SO glad decided to write YA.

Karis Jacobstein said...
