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 have come to the conclusion that you really cant go wrong with picking up a book written by Jennifer Estep. Her Elemental Assassin adult Urban Fantasy series is one of my favorite series and I have to admit that it looks like The Mythos Academy series will fall right in there in my top faves with it. I liked Gwen, she was easy to follow. I really enjoyed getting to know her and what she can do as she discovered them. All the Mythology was fun to learn and interpret. The "relationship" with bad boy Logan was definitely frustrating and intriguing at the same time.  I cant wait to read the next book and see what else happens to Gwen in her new role.

I gave it 4/5 stars
