Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Gwen Frost is not having a good year. A month after her mother's death her grandmother enrolls her in the exclusive Mythos Academy. Where she will earn reading, writing, ancient myths and how to fight like an ancient warrior. Its not your average school but Gwen is not your average student. She has a special gift, she can see a persons past just by touching them or an object they touched.
But when a student is killed in the Library of Antiquities and The Bowl of Tears is stolen, Gwen is determined to solve the mystery. In the processes she makes a few new friends, discovers the schools secret, and her destiny.
This book is not going to be an award winning book but it is a series that captures your attention. If only for a minute. Gwen is a good female character that has doubts, insecurities and determined to do the right thing no matter how dangerous.
I would not let a younger teenager read this book to much sex drugs and murder but 15 and older it might be okay. While the other characters are drinking and having sex Gwen isn't and doesn't seem to get while everyone else is behaving this way. She is killing a few people but then what is a hero to do when faced with an enemy.
