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...
“Touch of Frost is an intriguing start to an exciting new series!” —Award-winning author Jeri Smith-Ready 11,000 Words
I read this book in October, but then got sidetracked before reading more in the series. I reviewed it at the time but then I was afraid that I had forgotten some of the details so I just reread it since it was pretty short.
I do this a lot and then find out that I really do remember what had happened and feel a little silly about rereading in the first place, but it is nice to get back into the world of the characters and know that you aren't missing out on any details.
It will be interesting to see where the story line goes with the gods and monsters. I am listening to Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan in the car so I am already immersed in a story about gods, it will be neat getting another authors take as most of the ones I've read have been by Riordan.
