Mythos Academy: Colorado, Book 1
Synopsis: New school year, same old problems . . .
At Mythos Academy, everyone knows exactly who I am: Rory Forseti, Spartan girl and the daughter of Reapers.
Even though I fought alongside my cousin Gwen Frost to save the mythological world from Loki and his evil Reapers of Chaos, I’m still the most hated girl at the academy because of all the horrible things my parents did. I had hoped that this school year would be different, but the other kids just won’t let me forget about my parents.
But something strange is going on at the Colorado academy. First, I run into a Viking guy who dislikes me more than most. Then I notice some odd artifacts in the Library of Antiquities. And worst of all, I start hearing rumors about a new group of Reapers who can summon mythological monsters.
I might be the most hated girl at Mythos Academy, but I’m also the only one who can save it . . .
Review: I was very happy to hear that a German publisher had asked for more novels from the author, but even more that she agreed to offer us this story in English too!
It was great to immerse in the Mythos universe again. And what to say when in addition we find some characters that we had previously met. Moreover, it is the turn of Rory, Gwen’s cousin, to be on the front of the stage. Poor Rory who hopes to make a fresh start with her aunt but it seems that as always, people are only whispering about her because of her Reapers parents. It’s really not an easy situation for the young woman. But here, besides that, she finds herself mixed up with new problems. It would seem that their enemies are not annihilated as they thought when Rory discovers that some Reapers are trying to seize powerful artifacts to dominate the world once more. Unexpectedly part of a spy team at school, Rory will discover what the shadows hide.
It was a nice story to read even if I confess that I preferred the previous novels, I had a good time with this new story. I wonder, however, how the author will continue this plot and I am curious to read what she reserves us for the future. You will see for yourself: new characters, a derivative intrigue and even a little moment with Gwen at the end of the story.
