Oh.My.Gods by Tera Lynn Childs September 10, 2011

A fun and fast read!

Phoebe’s life is about to change dramatically, when her moms moves them to a tiny island in Greece to live with her new husband. What Phoebe doesn’t know is that the island’s only Academy is a super private school for Gods’ descendents. She feels like an outcast, the only normal -nothos- kid in a school filled with semi-gods. But that doesn’t stop her from pursuing her dream in running and making the school’s team.

Soon enough she makes new friends, new enemies and a very cute and dangerous crush.

The story is short and fast-passed. We don’t get to learn that much about the characters, so they are likable but I didn’t really feel connected with ony of them. Phoebe is a cool heroine who likes to win and won’t even go easy on her crush.

The book was supposed to be about the academy of semi-gods, but half way through it I forgot all about them and their powers, nothing paranormali was really happening. I was expecting more action besides the running parts. But there was no big evil to fight, no training to learn how to use your powers, no nothing.

I think the next book, Goddess Boot Camp, is going to be better…

[spoiler] cause it’s about Phoebe learning to use her new powers [spoiler]

First Frost (Mythos Academy Prequel) by Jennifer Estep August 16, 2011

Another amazing prequel. I can’t wait to start reading Touch of Frost.

Ok, this is the story of Gwen before she enrolled in Mythos Academy. Gwen is a gypsy, though she doesn’t know why, which is kind of weird but anyways…she is a gypsy with a gift to see memories and feelings that are attached to an object or even a person. One day she finds out a terrible secret by touching the hairbrush of another girl and her story begins. After a few weeks she is told that, by fall she will have to leave her old school back and go to Mythos Academy, a place for people like her.

The story is really nice and it gets you wanna read more. I love Gwen and the way she is so curious about everything.

I also have to say that Spartans are not mythological creatures (gypsies either). They are just people who where born in Sparta. Humans. It’s the way they were raise that made them of the most incredible fighters of Greece. Just a note. But I’m going to look pass that cause I think the book is really awesome.
