3.5 Stars! Check this review out on our blog
Gwen's character is sort of cliché. At Mythos Academy she begins as a social nerdy outcast who has no friends, but then has a revelation and becomes someone more to be reckoned with. My favorite part about her was her gift, pyschometry, the power that when she touches things (or people) she gets an impression of that person's thoughts/feelings. It is a totally new and unique power.
Another one of my favorite parts is when one of the popular girls, who seems like a typical mean girl, pleasantly surprises me in her depth of personality and her ability to really grow as a character. The love interest, on the other hand, I am conflicted about. I pretty much like him, but towards the the end he and Gwen part on very odd terms, and I get that it could all be resolved in the next book, but it just sort of bothers me. He also acts very hot and cold with Gwen.
The writing was clear and simple, which made this book easy to read and be able to focus on the plot. The plot was enjoyable, but not amazingly original. I also like Gwen, and look forward to more character development with her. All in all I would recommend Touch of Frost, and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
