Here we go again …
Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.
As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …

First Thoughts when Finished: Oh how I hope that a certain someone is in books to come! She had spunk just like Gwen!
Story Thoughts: I am a SUCKER for finding long-lost, didn’t know about them family. Especially when they have just as much reason to be sad, mad, and grumpy. Midnight Frost was a great adventure for Gwen and we got transported to a new location. In fact, we got to meet some new people and interact with Gryphons *sigh* (I really want a Gryphon–in the epic words of Warner Bros: I wanna hug him and squeeze him and call him George”). Actually, I really like where Midnight Frost is taking the story. Gwen is having to step up her game, protect her pack (and they protect her), and realize just how important those around her really are. On the romance front just don’t get me started!
Character Thoughts: Midnight Frost took us away from Mythos and introduced some new characters. New characters that I happen to really like and hope are in books to come. The core character is always Gwen and she shined! She showed humility, caring, daring, and patience. While Logan went back to a “maybe” I won’t want to sock him character in this book for me; he did make an appearance and he did step up! Of course, Daphne kind of stole the show! She is the girl with all the great lines!

I think Tara does a great job with the narration of the series. I think my only problem lies with Logan’s voice and he isn’t in this one much. Otherwise, she nailed Gwen! Her emotions, her quips, and her spunk! As always I suggest listening to a sample before committing to an audio book. Even those of us who listen to them don’t always agree on narrators. (I added that in because lately I have been asked how to decide what audio book to listen too.)
Final Thoughts: Why did I have to catch up? I mean now I have to wait *sigh*
