Review: Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep

Review: Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep Killer Frost Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una are bereft to inform you that we have indeed read the last of the Mythos Academy books.  Killer Frost is a bittersweet read only in that we say goodbye to Gwen and her friends and this rich and wondrous world.  However, Killer Frost is an exceedingly brilliant novel that ties up all the loose ends simply and poignantly. Throughout the Mythos Academy series, Gwen has been the underdog, the unlikely hero.  Surrounded at the Academy by Amazons, Valkyries, Spartans, Ninjas and other great warriors, Gwen is different.  Her magic lies in...

Review: The Spider by Jennifer Estep

Review: The Spider by Jennifer Estep The Spider Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Opening in present day, shortly after the events of the ninth Elemental Assassin story, Heart of Venom, Gin Blanco tells her lover, Owen, the gritty details of the events that solidified her place as the deadly assassin, the Spider.

Review: Kiss of Venom by Jennifer Estep

Review: Kiss of Venom by Jennifer Estep Kiss of Venom Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: B+, 3.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: Taking place shortly after the events in the previous book, Deadly Sting, Kiss of Venom is told from the first person POV of Owen Grayson, the once lover of heroine Gin Blanco. It was very different reading the story from Owen’s perspective, when for so long we only “hear” what Gin thinks. But this was a much-needed story for those fans of the series who are “team Owen.” The novella immediately lets the reader in on Owen’s true feelings about Gin killing his once love, Selina Debouis (Widow’s Web) and the subsequent actions...

Saturday Conversations: AADSAV

Saturday Conversations: AADSAV Authors After Dark 2013 Today I’m hijacking the Saturday Conversation spot to bring you a recap of my trip to Authors After Dark 2013: Savannah Nights! I had another wonderful time at AAD, and if I had to summarize in one word this year compared with the previous two, it would be MELLOW. The entire trip had a much more low-key atmosphere for a few reasons. First: the weather. It rained A LOT–almost the entire time we were there. It made it difficult to get out of the hotel and see Savannah. Second: the hotel. We were a little isolated from the attractions of Savannah, and with the rotten...

Review: Midnight Frost by Jennifer Estep

Review: Midnight Frost by Jennifer Estep Midnight Frost Author: Jennifer Estep  Reviewer: Gikany and Una  Rating: A, 4.5 Stars 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...

Review: Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep

Review: Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep Deadly Sting Author: Jennifer Estep  Release Date: March 26, 2013 Publisher: Pocket Books Elemental Assassin #8 ISBN: #978-1451688993 Genre: Urban Fantasy Format(s): Paperback (400 pgs), e-book, audio Book Source: Edelweiss About the book:       Red is definitely my color. Good thing, because in my line of work, I end up wearing it a lot.       Most people shy away from blood, but for an assassin like me — Gin Blanco, aka the Spider — it’s just part of the job. Still, it would be nice to get a night off, especially when I’m attending the biggest gala event of the summer at Briartop, Ashland’s fanciest...
