I've seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I'm supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I'm just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me--again.
Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects--and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I'm also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me? It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can't use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me--and I'm in for the fight of my life.
I think that this book may be my favorite in the series so far. However, there were a lot of times where I felt like Gwen completely missed what was right in front of her. There were a lot of clues that I feel like she should have quickly put together, but in this book her skills seemed to be lacking. The storyline in general was good & full of excitement (I wouldn't expect anything else from Estep!) I really love all of Gwen's friends-Daphne, Carson, Logan...but I'm getting a little tired of the Logan/Gwen drama & I'm hoping that what happened at the end of the book will put an end to all of that. All in all, this book is a perfect addition to the Mythos Academy series!
