Waiting on Wednesday!!!

Published July 25, 2012 by crysbookreviews

The eyes never lie. No one’s eyes are darker than Eryx. Not even the Devil’s.

When Jax and Sasha first see Jordan Ellis, they know she is no ordinary teenager. She’s the daughter of the President after all, but she’s also Anabo – a descendant of Eve.

What they don’t know is that Eryx plans to kidnap Jordan and force President Ellis to pledge his soul. If Eryx’s plot succeeds, the consequences would be catastrophic.

But the Mephisto brothers do know about Jordan’s secret identity. And for one of them, she could be the match that leads to their soul’s salvation.

Now it’s a desperate race against time to save Jordan and prevent Eryx’s haunting eyes from discovering her true identity.

A thrilling story of romance, danger, and intrigue, THE MEPHISTO KISS continues the marvelous mythology that began in THE MEPHISTO COVENANT. From Goodreads.

Why Am I Waiting For It?

I have been waiting a while for this book because I absolutely LOVED the Mephisto Covenant. I can’t wait to read this book because that means I get to reread the first one. Which also means you guys get another review. The covers to both books are amazing. This book comes out September 25, 2012. I will definitely have the book ASAP, I can’t wait to find out which brother she will redeem.

Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep (Mythos Academy #2)

I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Acad­emy, and I have no idea how I’m going to sur­vive the rest of the semes­ter. One day, I’m get­ting schooled in sword­play by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gor­geous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invis­i­ble archer in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties decides to use me for tar­get prac­tice. And now, I find out that some­one at the acad­emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword… From Goodreads

I really enjoy the books that just get better each book. This time they, Logan, Gwen, Daphne and Carson go with Mythos to a ski resort for school with the other students from the New York Academy. Of course Gwen doesn’t really want to go because she doesn’t want to see Logan make out with his girlfriend Savannah. I mean who would want to do that with the guy that they have been crushing on for months now?

This time around there is 2 new Spartans in the story, Oliver and Kenzie. Kenzie is all about trying to help Gwen but for some reason Oliver is totally against helping her. Of course we find out later as to why he is like that at first. Now before Gwen even leaves for the ski resort, she has some close calls. Leaving her Grandma’s house she is almost hit by an SUV and while in the library someone shots an arrow at her. Knowing that, I wouldn’t really be all up and about to go on a semi vaca from school either. But Daphne and her grandma talk her into going for her own good.

While there, she meets Preston who is from the New York Academy. And this does not go over well with Logan, which is ridiculous since he has his own girlfriend that isn’t Gwen. Now things get weird while skiing with Daphne and Carson, she learns that she can use memories from her psychometry to be able to do something, like skiing. At the bottom of the slope she is almost attacked by a Fenrir wolf. Now she knows someone is after and it most likely is the Reapers since she is blamed for Jasmine’s death.

Not to mention the fact that while she was walking down the mountain from the carnival, someone sets off an explosion that causes an avalanche, which gets her and the wolf stuck together for a few hours. This causes affection from the wolf to her since she helped take a branch that was in its leg out. Gwen ends up getting found by Coach Ajax, luckily.

The bad guy ends up being a Reaper and also Jasmine’s older brother. He is out for revenge since she killed Jasmine. Even though she didn’t and that was Logan. At one point right before she finds out who the Reaper is, she thinks that it is Oliver. He was just trying to scare her so she won’t reveal who his crush is. I get why he did what he did. I am just glad it worked out and that they all became friends.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
