The Reapers are at it again. Determined more than ever to rid the world of our poor gypsy girl, they use a Reaper classmate to sneak poison into her water. Well, I use the term sneak loosely, 'cause Gwen actually catches him doing it. Unfortunately, she was too late to stop someone else from taking a swig and now that person's life hangs in the balance. And wouldn't you know it, the antidote requires a flower that only grows in one place, so they know they're headed right into an ambush.
I'm not gonna lie. The Mythos Academy books are simple and completely predictable in every way possible. You know when she befriends or aids a stranger or creature, that favor will be returned, and you always know the exact moment a person will suddenly come to the rescue (yeah, you know who I'm talking about). But there's something about Gwen the gypsy girl and her mythological friends that keeps me coming back for more. If you're a fan of the series, you'll be happy with Midnight Frost.
