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. . .
First Frost is the prequel to the Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep. While you can enjoy the series without reading this story, the story gives more detail about the events that lead to Gwen to attend Mythos Academy.
I really enjoyed reading the story. It gave us some insight into what Gwen went through when her mother died. It also alluded to there being family secrets that Gwen knew nothing about. It was a nice set up for this series.
I can't wait to read this series.
