Mytho's Academy by Jennifer Estep, Review
Hello and here you have it finally my first review. I will have more to come :)
Mytho's Academy gets a total from me :) I love the whole series I recomend it to anyone who loves YA Academy books, or magic of any kind, as well as mythology, this is a great read.
(all information is from Ms. Esteps official site)
The Mythos Academy books focus on Gwen Frost, a 17-year-old Gypsy girl who has the gift of psychometry, or the ability to know an object’s history just by touching it. Gwen’s magic lets her see everyone who has ever touched or used an object as well as feel their emotions — the good, the bad, and the ugly. After a serious freak-out with her magic, Gwen finds herself shipped off to Mythos Academy, a school for the descendents of ancient warriors like Spartans, Valkyries, and more. The academy is located in the fictional suburb of Cypress Mountain, North Carolina, and the kids there are training how to use their magic and various skills to fight Reapers of Chaos. The Reapers are some seriously bad guys who want to free the evil god Loki from his mystical prison so Loki can take over the world and enslave everyone.
Gwen doesn’t think that she belongs at the academy or that she’s any kind of warrior, but she’s wrong — and she’s a lot stronger than she realizes.

A question asked on Jennifer's site, was is Mytho's Academy just for teens? Jennifer's answer:
"Not at all. Adults can read the books too. Personally, I love reading young adult books — they’re just as good as adult books. They are so many great young adult books out there that you’re bound to find some that you like."
I agree 100%, I loved this series and I am 40 years old :) I actually prefer the YA books to the Adult books, you actually get more of a story and way less sex scenes, which are not always bad but sometimes just totally off the point of the story.
