I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift. It's called psychometry – that's a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people's memories off almost everything I touch, even guys.

My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy—to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don't want to know the secrets my friend Paige is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school – Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren't preparing us for the SATs, but to battle Reapers of Chaos. Now I have no friends and no idea how my gift fits in with all these warrior whiz kids. The only thing I do know is that my life is never, ever going to be the same. . .

This is a short story of the beginning of Gwen Frost. I loved this book cause it gave a better insight on Gwen and her gift. The reader meets Gwen as we first see her powers come into play. I really adored that the setting is in the past so the reader for the first first time gets to see Gwen's mom.I feel the story gives a great back round history to Gwen and her life. I loved that while it was filled with he discovery of her power, it also foreshadowed the dark future that Gwen will be facing.If you have not picked up this series you should. This is a great short story that sets the tone for a great series that I know everyone will enjoy!read more

I have read all of Estep's Elemental Assassin series and was excited to hear she was starting the young adult Mythos Academy series. The first full length book in this series is, Touch of Frost, and will be released July 26th. This short story was a good intro to the series and really set things up nicely.Gwen Frost is a girl with Gypsy magic that goes to a normal high school. When her Gypsy magic inadvertently causes catastrophe to strike her life she finds herself at Mythos Academy; a magical place where people with similar powers attend school.I should state right away that this is the story of how Gwen ended up going to Mythos Academy. So, basically this whole story is just set up. That being said I enjoyed the set up, I liked Gwen as a character, and I was intrigued by the brief glimpse I did get of Mythos Academy.You don't see a lot of Mythos Academy and that was kind of disappointing. What I did see of it I liked. It sounds very Harry Potterish or kind of like Camp Half Blood (from Percy and the Olympians) but with a more teen bent to it.Overall I enjoyed the story. I liked Gwen as a character and liked learning how she got to Mythos academy. I am eager to see more of Mythos Academy and can't wait to read Touch of Frost when it is released. If you are a Jennifer Estep fan and like young adult novels definitely check this out; it is a good intro to the series.read more
