Here we go again …
Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.
As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …
I am still loving this series, but what is vexing me is that other than the odd scrap (and poisoning), none of the god guys really get hurt, there is always someone there to help if they do. They can be saved even they are the brink of death. Yes I know I shouldn’t want the good characters to get hurt, but it is unrealistic especially when so many bad guys get killed.
I like the premise of this book, there adventure featured around saving a friend. They knew the risks of such a journey, yet they did it anyway. I like Logan but I did not really miss him until his name was mentioned.
I liked finding out more about Gwen family. It was a nice addition to all the fighting.
I would have given this book five stars if it had been a little more realistic for me. Looking forward to the last book in the series though.
four out of five stars
Day 14: I adore the title of this novel. Ahh there are so many. But I have to chose the names of series I love. The names of all three books in the trilogy are clever.
The covers are beautiful. I like how the names are part of well known sayings.
A rose between two thorns.
A devil by any other name is still a devil.
All is fair in love and war.
They really fit the story of each book too.
I’m Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was–until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.
Professor Metis and Nickamedes say that I’m fine, that Loki and the Reapers don’t have a hold on me anymore, but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk hurting Gwen again. So I’m leaving Mythos and going somewhere far, far away.
I know Gwen wonders what’s happening to me, whether I’m safe. I can’t tell her, but this is my story. . .
I really like this series, but there is something about this book that dragged for me. It is only 6o odd pages long and I felt like I was running a marathon to the end.
It was from Logan’s point of view instead of Gwen’s and as a main character he is pretty boring. He was whiny and just plain boring. Not a great addition to a fantastic series for me. Even the action was lack luster.
