My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy - a school of myths, magic, and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.
But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why - especially since I should have been the one who died.…

Repetitive with terrible narration.
I don't believe I would read another book by either. The narrator was terrible and annoying to say the least with a whiny tone and repeated the same up and down pitch of every single line she spoke through the entire book. The author had a great concept, great imagery and compelling story. The problem was the execution. I actually found it difficult to finish the book. The repetition of key points (no spoiler examples) made it not only annoying to hear them for the 10th to 15th time they were mentioned but also made it painfully obvious as to where the book was going as contrast to the points stressed throughout the entire book. Such as that she was new with no friends at the Academy. She must have said this 10 times per chapter. I will not be finishing the series. I also feel as if there was a contradiction between making Gwendolyn smart yet stupid at the same time. Things that were plainly obvious she repeatedly skipped over that should have been even her general knowledge not just the reader.
I enjoyed the concept and lore of the story. Although the love story was a bit dry and boring the mystery was enough to keep the focus no matter how predictable.
The narrator was just terrible in every way. I apologize I can't say it better but she was just not suited to narrate this peticular title.
