EXCLUSIVE DARK FROST EXCERPT:

Swipe-swipe-swipe.

The Reaper swung his sword at my head, but I parried his blows. I hadn’t been going to Mythos Academy for very long, and I hadn’t had the lifelong weapons training the other kids had had, but I’d gotten a crash course in learning how to stay alive these last few months. The Reaper raised his sword for another strike, but I ducked behind the figure of the Roman centurion, putting it between us. The Reaper wasn’t quite quick enough to pull his blow, and his sword stuck in the wax that made up the Roman’s chest. He frantically tugged on his weapon, trying to free it for another strike at me.

I didn’t hesitate. It was kill or be killed, and if the situation had been reversed, the Reaper would have done the same to me. Still, that knowledge, that cold logic, didn’t make me feel any better as I darted forward and shoved Vic into the Reaper’s chest with all my strength. The Reaper screamed and clawed at the silver blade, trying to rip Vic out of my hands. I tightened my grip, yanked the sword out, then plunged it into his stomach. The Reaper screamed again and stumbled back. He sprawled to a stop on the floor below the dais, and he didn’t get back up.

“Nicely done, Gwen!” Vic shouted, his mouth moving underneath my sweaty hand.

“Shut up, Vic!” I screamed back at him.

On the other side of the dais, Carson battled another Reaper, parrying the Reaper’s sword with the staff he’d grabbed earlier. Daphne stood a few feet behind him, her bow up and ready, just waiting to put an arrow into the Reaper as soon as she got a clear shot. Across the room, Logan had killed the Reaper he’d stabbed before and was battling the second one.

My head whipped around to the seventh and final Reaper—the girl who’d murdered my mom. She stood in the same spot as before, a long, curved sword in her black-gloved hand. She stared at me, and through the slits in her mask, I saw the faintest glint of her eyes—and the spark of red that flashed in their depths. The angry, hate-filled flicker burned like a match underneath the twisted rubber covering her face.

“Well, well, well,” the Reaper girl hissed. “If it isn’t Nike’s Champion, slinging a sword like she actually knows how to use it. I was hoping I might run into you here.”

About the Book:

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 like Gwen a lot too, having a gypsy for a main character was new and different. Plus I love her relationship with her grandmother it reminds me of my family, we are all super close.

    I’ve only read the first book, but I really liked Gwen. She’s not the strongest person in the room and she knows it, but she’s still willing to try her best even up against some pretty fearsome characters.

    I’ve read the first two books in this series and loved it because I went into these books thinking, “oh I’m not going to like it” but after reading the first book, I was totally hooked and couldn’t wait to read the second one. Gwen is a great character who doesn’t give up easily. And who can forget Logan? lol. He’s awesome!
