Wow! When I finished this, I had to take a few moments after to go over what I just read. In case you haven't read my reviews for the previous books in this series, this series is a favorite of mine. I love the mythology, and not just one isolated version either, but myths from all around the globe combined together. But what I loved the most was, as Gwen searches and searches for an artifact, the story doesn't stall. It doesn't hold out until the next book for something to happen.
This book, things get dark. I was surprised on how this ended. Shocked, even. But I loved it. While at the time I read it, I wasn't so sure, but now that I've had time to think on it, I thought it really escalates the story and leaves me itching to get my hands on the next one even more than the others did. The battle is is a sure thing. And it's not in the distant future. It's upon them. While it seems weird to me a little, I'm giddy to see this battle. I'm excited to see Gwen thrown even further into the mix. And it looks like I don't have to wait too long for it either. It just may be the next book where everything goes down. Or starts.
Love, love, love this series. It's imaginative and unique among others of the mythological/urban fantasy genre. I could get lost in the world of Gwen Frost, happily reading along as I cheer her on. Jennifer Estep's Mythos Academy is a series not to be missed.
