This is the sixth and final book in the Mythos Academy series. I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley (thanks to NetGalley and K-Teen for the chance to read this book). I was a huge fan of the first 3-4 books in this series and then I thought the most recent books lagged a bit. However, this book does an excellent job of wrapping up the series and I enjoyed it.

Gwen is hoping for some peace, but worried that the Reapers might attack at any moment. Then she is asked to use her psychometry to scan a bunch of artifacts and find out which artifact the Reapers are after. The artifact is a magic candle with incredible healing powers. Gwen and crew must protect this candle so that the Reapers don't get it and heal Loki with it. All of this will lead to the final showdown between the students/teachers of Mythos Academy and the Reapers.

This was a well done conclusion to this series. The plot does continue to be a bit repetitive (there are again a number of scenes where Viv jumps barely escapes on her black Roc). The story is also pretty predictable.

Gwen honestly hasnt grown as much as a character as I had hoped. It seems like she is finally accepting her friends aid and working as a team. It seems like her and Logan are finally being honest with each other. That is of course until she lies to everyone again and tries to sneak off and do the most dangerous thing she can on her own...again. This is something Gwen has consistently done throughout the series and I wish that she had learned her lesson by now. Gwen does make leaps and bounds in learning to use her psychometry as a weapon and is wielding it with more precision, so that was good to see.

Logan has grown a lot as a character. He is respecting Gwens power and trusting her to take care of herself. I liked seeing that and liked the way he called Gwen out on her own immaturity at times.

There is a ton of action in this book, it is definitely more urban fantasy than paranormal romance. We even get to see Gwens grandma get in on some of the fighting. Lots of sword fights and scenes of fighting between the Reapers and Gwen and her friends.

The story is incredibly fast-paced and of course we finally get to see that final showdown between Gwen and Loki. Loki is in the story a bit more and, although he is a creepy bad dude, I wish his character had a bit more depth to it.he was kind of 2D throughout the series.

The story wraps up beautifully and I enjoyed how everything came together (even if it was fairly predictable). The book is well written, engaging, and makes for a fast read. Estep includes an afterward about this being her first book series that she has wrapped up, she also discusses whether or not there will be future books in this world.

Overall a great conclusion to this series. There is a lot of action and the story is fast paced. The book was a quick read and well written. I do wish that some of the plot elements has been less repetitive and that the story had been a bit less predictable, but I still enjoyed reading it. This whole series is recommended to those who enjoy young adult urban fantasy with mythology in it.

Here it is. The final installment in Jennifer Esteps Mythos Academy series *sob*. I wont go all dramatic or give away any spoilers. I do have to say watching Gwen Frost grow from book one until now, has been an exciting adventure. She started out shy and kind of a loner and has grown into a strong and confident woman with a great group of loyal friends surrounding her.

Because of this loyalty, these friends (both current and from the past) play a pivotal role in this final chapter. As always with Esteps writing, the action starts right away and never lets up until the end. There are curve balls thrown in to keep the readers on their toes. We also learn the true identity of a certain someone that works in the library.

The use of mythology has been impeccable throughout the series. The way Estep weaves the history into the storyline is flawless. Now, I am sure youre wondering why I only gave it a four rating. The reason is because of the repetition that occurs quite a lot (and not in just this book). It isnt necessarily a bad thing, but there were times that I felt the story could move a bit faster.

Entertaining and action packed this final goodbye to Mythos Academy ended just the way it should have. For anyone that hasnt started this YA series, it is worth your time. For those that have been reading through the series, you wont be disappointed.
