REVIEW: Killer Frost by Jennifer Estep

Killer Frost (Mythos Academy, #6)She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.

NOTICE: This is the 6th book of a series, so there may be spoilers for the previous books.

In the conclusion to Mythos Academy, Gwen Frost is still Nike's Champion and it is up to her to not only stop Loki and his Reapers from causing havoc, but it is up to her to kill Loki. Along with her friends, she will defeat the Reapers and their evil god.

Don't let my rating deceive you, I enjoyed reading this book. I have given every book in this series around 3 or 4 stars and this book was no different. 
One small-ish detail about this book that I loved was the fact that we don't just dive into the book, but get brief tidbits that tell us who all the characters were and what the frex happened in the last book. I loved that this was in the book, since a majority of the time you have to dive right into the book when, after a year or so, you forgot everything that happened in the other books. So thank you, Jennifer, for reminding me of everything that happened.

Anyway, it was nice to see some of the characters again, some I didn't even realized I missed (Vic. Vic is amazing. He's a frexing talking sword and he is british). Gwen's friends are amazing and I loved how much they cared for her and how they always stuck by her side.

There was, of course, some characters that I want to stab to death (I really, really wanted to stab Vivian). But I did enjoy going back into this series and believe that the series ended quite nicely. Meaning: there was no unanswered questions and whatnot. 

I enjoyed reading this series and while i'm a bit sad to see it go, I'm happy with how it ended.
<highlight to view spoiler>Although, I wish Vivian died. Does that make me a bad person?<end of spoiler>
I hereby give this book
3.5 Wheels
Meaning: I liked it and it was almost amazing!
