High school gets even harder when there’s an evil god on the loose in the New York Times bestselling author’s YA urban fantasy novel.

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy, a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids. And now there’s also Loki, the evil god I helped set free against my will. On the bright side, I finally got a date with Logan Quinn, the hottest—and deadliest—Spartan at Mythos. But I should have known it was destined to end in disaster.

If we'd gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I'd have been more prepared. I definitely didn’t expect to get arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout. I'm accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan's dad. Now pretty much everyone at school thinks I'm guilty. If I'm going to get out of this mess alive, I'll have to do it myself.

I really enjoyed this audiobook! I think that this series seems to get better and better with each book. As this book opens, Gwen is finally out on a date with Logan when she is taken into custody to stand trial for letting Loki go. Of course, she is innocent but will she be able to prove that to everyone else? I was glued to my headphones eager to see how things would work out for Gwen.

I was pretty worried about Gwen in this book since the odds really seemed to be against her. To make matters worse, the leader of the crew putting her on trial is none other than Logan’s father along with his stepmother. She has a guard assigned to her but is allowed to go to classes until the trial is over and she is not treated well by the other Mythos Academy students. There are some pretty big revelations in this book along with a mystery that kept me guessing. I love the fact that this book is full of action but still focuses on the friendships between this group of students.

Tara Sands continues to do a fabulous job with the narration of this series. I really enjoy the various character voices that she uses which helps to pull me into the story. I think that she has a very pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for hours at a time. I am confident that her narration added to my enjoyment of this book.

I would definitely recommend this book to others. This is the fourth book in the Mythos Academy series which I would definitely recommend reading in order since each book builds on the events from previous books. This book had everything that I was looking for and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next installment.

  1. I love her work but I never read or listened to this series, IDK YA just usually turns me off but maybe I should dip my toe back into these waters ;-). Great review

    This is a new Estep title for me, and I am kicking myself for not knowing she wrote this goodness before now!
