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.
It can be so fun when a good series gets a spin-off series to keep things going. Poor Rory’s had it rough, it sounds like.
I haven’t read her previous novels, but I’m glad you had a nice time with this one, and that cover looks really nice 🙂
Reapers?! Count me in! And my, that’s one gorgeous cover <3
It has been a while since I read anything from this author. I love the cover and how exciting it is being offered in both English and German.
I liked the ones I tried by her
I haven’t read this author before but I really like the sound of this story.
The Mythos Academy is one of my favorite series! I’m glad you enjoyed this one!
oh you need to try if so
Ack, Estep. it was long ago
What a cool cover! And sounds like a fun story too. Hope the plot goes well in the next ones!
I am curious about this one. I read the Mythos Academy series and really loved it. I will have to look into this new series.
yes you should try
I’ve always wanted to try the author, and I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this series, especially since it’s book one. Might be a great place to jump on board, thanks for the review!
it’s a new one self published in ENglish
Oh it sounds great. I could see why you loved and enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy the rest books in the series once you read them. Awesome review, my friend. ❤️
I just requested that my library get the first audiobook for the Mythos Academy. I’m excited to start it. I really love Jennifer Estep. I’ll start this once I’m done with that. This looks like a great start to the spinoff.
I read the first few books in the Mythos Academy and really need to get back to it. I like that she is writing more books in the same world. Glad you enjoyed this one.
Poor girl! What else does she have to do to prove she isnt her parent!!
I still need to start the Mythos Academy. I’m not a huge fan of YA, but I liked Estep’s Black Blade series, so now I want to try these. Great review.
