Gwen Frost étudie à la Mythos Academy, une université où se côtoient des guerriers mythologiques, des amazones, des sorcières... Quand Jasmine Ashton, la fille la plus en vue de la fac est assassinée et que la coupe des Larmes, un artifact maqigue est volé, elle semble pourtant être la seule à s'en soucier.
Achat précipité basé sur le nom de l'auteur, je n'avais pas remarqué que l'ouvrage s'adressait aux adolescents. Je l'ai donc entamé un peu dépitée mais au fil des pages je me suis laissé entraîner dans l'univers de cette gipsy girl très sympathique plongé dans une fac très américaine peuplé de jeunes gens avec des pouvoirs surnaturels. Je crois même que j'acheterai la suite mais J. Estep vise les 15-20 ans.

J'ai dévoré la série des Frost, ces livres m'ont fait passé de très bon moments.
L'héroïne, adolescente, est mordante.
L'histoire de Gwen nous fait découvrir un monde de magie et une intrigue dans laquelle on s'immerge volontiers, et qui nous donne envie d'en savoir plus.
Si vous aimez le premier tome, vous pouvez tout de suite acheter la suite :)

This was NOT good. 11 mai 2013
Par Heather K - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I freakin' HATED this book

I can summarize why I loathed this book with just a few quotes:

"Yucko" (repeated 6 times)

"My Gypsy gift" (repeated 45 times- yes I searched for this on my kindle)

And for the sentiment attached to quotes like this one "I loved Samson; I really did. But he's a guy, after all, and he's always thinking with his dick. I expected this sort of thing from him. But Morgan and I grew up together... That's why she's going to pay for screwing my boyfriend."

This book was a HUGE disappointment. I was hoping for another Vampire Academy, something with great sexual tension and a kick-butt plot. Instead I got poorly written crap that is filled with stereotypes.

Meet Gwen, a girl who is so nerdy and alternative that she wears hoodies! and reads comic books! Crazy stuff here, folks. Gwen is just a terrible character. She is so judgmental it is sickening. She hates the rich girls and the "sluts" (the ultimate put down in Gwen's book!) and anyone too girly. The worst part is that she doesn't seem to mind male "sluts". Apparently having sex is only a cardinal sin if you have lady parts.

She is also incredibly dense. Gwen claims that because of her "Gypsy gift" she can never forget anything. Then why, may I ask, does she seem not to catch on to ANYTHING. I figured out everything from about 60% on and Gwen was still walking around in a befuddled haze. Gwen also seems to have the mental capacity of a 12 year old. She thinks kissing is icky and says things like "yucko" regularly. She is supposed to be 17!!!. Honestly, I found that hard to believe. She goes to a magic school with abnormally strong Spartans, Valkyrie girls who shoot colored sparks out of their fingers, and she herself has a "Gypsy gift" of seeing the history of things that she touches yet she still doesn't believe in the Gods and mythology- what more proof do you need girl?!?! And don't get me even started on the "romance". I didn't get it and I wasn't feeling it.

The writing too was just not up to par. Aside from the fact that it was incredibly repetitive and cliched, there are tons of grammar mistakes and contradictions. It just irritated me more and more as I read. I tried to keep an open mind but I wanted to put it down at about 70% because I was so frustrated with the whole reading experience.

As you can see, this book was a HUGE miss for me.

Cliched paranormal story 12 août 2011
Par Cinnamon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Gwen Frost is being forced to attend Mythos Academy, an elite school set apart to train kids who just so happen to be descendants of various mythical warriors. Of course, Gwen doesn't believe in any of the supernatural skills her classmates supposedly possess. The only type of magic she actually accepts is her own and that of her own family. When the school's most popular girl, the icy Valkyrie princess Jasmine, is murdered right in the library next to a stolen mythical artifact called the Bowl of Tears, Gwen is determined to get to the bottom of the entire situation. It's never a good idea to poke your head into other people's business, though. So the results? Who else is to blame but yourself?

"Touch of Frost" belongs to the new batch of paranormal stories that all seem exactly the same, only with different character names and fantastical elements. This novel's back story is a mishmash of tons of various warriors -- from Norse gods to ninjas. While that is certainly a nice idea, it's never really delved into. Except for a few key warrior gods, all the others felt extraneous and were barely mentioned at all.

The characters aren't especially mind-blowing, either. You have the blonde mean girl clique, the quirky and unpopular heroine, and the hot bad boy who falls in love with the heroine anyways; just the same formula used over and over and over again. The character with an actual personality was Vic, the ancient magical sword, who has a grand total of about five lines in the entire novel. That is just sad. A sword beats out all those other full-fledged human characters? Sad, sad, sad.

"Touch of Frost" is quite a cliché, but lovers of stereotypical teen paranormal stories (I know there are a lot of you out there) will devour it with glee.

Too much sex for a YA . 10 avril 2012
Par Lucine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I like Estep, but she is going to have to tone things down a little if she wants to write succesful YA books. Books, with Teenagers having sex ( I would be more descriptive but my review was turned down the first time, as being obscene and I was just quoting the book) and classmates leaving used condoms in the library, will not find their way into school libraries. This would have been a nice girl version of the Percy Jackon books if she had not been so set on having most of the kids seeped in adult vices (sex, drugs, alcohol). Please, Ms Estep, do some more YA, but write as if your 13 year old daughter was going to read it . I can recommend this book for adults, but I would never recommend it to one of my students. Lucine

An Intriguing Mythology that Left Me Wanting More 2 août 2011
Par Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
3.5 stars

Touch of Frost is fun read with an intriguing mythology that left me wanting more. I'm a little torn about the book, as there are things I both really liked about it and some things I wanted to know more about. I loved what Jennifer did with her mythology and the way she introduced little bits and pieces of each lore through out the story. She created some great legends about both the Greek & Norse Gods and Goddesses, and tied them into the story via Mythos Academy, a school were the children of Valkyries, Spartan Warriors, Gypsies and more attend to learn about their history and how to control their powers. I liked being able to learn more about the legends at the same time the story's main character Gwen does.

Gwen herself is a character that liked getting to know, but there were times I was a little bit frustrated with her character. I was bugged that being halfway through the story she still didn't catch on to certain things about the school and why she was there, like I had excepted her to. One of the things I did like about Gwen is though she seems to be an outsider, she's not someone who's swayed easily and despite how hard it may be to stand up to the school's Queen Bee and her team of "mean girls", she does. I also liked her wit and the way she handles herself about the resident bad boy and main love interested Logan Quinn. One of the things that kept me hooked with the story was their chemistry. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens between these two in Kiss of Frost.

I liked Jennifer's writing, and I felt the story flowed well. There's a few things I felt that weren't covered as much as I had hoped, but I think those things will be addressed as the series goes on. I liked the murder mystery and how that intertwined with the story's mythology. I found the plot to be both predictable and unpredictable at the same time, and I liked that. While some things were easy to figure out, Jennifer was able to still throw some surprises at me. Though I felt the story read a lot like a teenage soap opera, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I'm hooked on the mythology and the chemistry between Gwen and Logan. I'd definitely recommend this book to older YA readers. There is language and sexual references through out the book and a scene with underage drinking.

Repetitive, mature topics without mature writing 23 mai 2012
Par Carrie Bartzen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The book got very repetitive and in general the level of writing didn't match with the maturity of the subject. (It seemed to me like a fifth grade reading level at many parts, but you definately shouldn't give this to a fifth grader with all the sex references). And then to make things worse the author through in a talking sword fit for a Disney movie. I forced myself to read to the end since it drives me crazy to not finish a book -- all in all waste of my time.
