Happily Ever Endings...Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Happily Ever Endings... was born out of sheer frustration. You know how when you read a series and you love it but the last book takes a little while to come out and then you sort of forget parts of the novel? That's what these posts are going to serve to remedy. Happily Ever Ending... is a short post about what happened at the ending of each book that is going to be in a series for people who need a quick reminder of what happened in the previous installment. I hope this saves someone else the frustration that I went through!

Logan Quinn was try ing to kill me. My Spar tan class mate relent lessly pur sued me, swing ing his sword at me over and over again, the shin ing sil ver blade inch ing closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes prac ti cally glowed with the thrill of battle... 

I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Acad emy, and I have no idea how I’m going to sur vive the rest of the semes ter. One day, I’m get ting schooled in sword play by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gor geous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invis i­ble archer in the Library of Antiq ui ties decides to use me for tar get prac­tice. And now, I find out that some one at the acad emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword...

After deciding that she has to find the Reaper while nearly avoiding becoming swept away by the avalanche, Gwen realizes that she needs to find out Oliver's secret. Fresh from the hospital, she goes to get Oliver's room number and Morgan helps her out but gives her an odd look when she tells her who she needs to see. Slipping into Oliver's room, she finds his notebook and gleans that his crush is actually his best friend Kenzie and that he has no other secrets to hide. She almost gives up but grabs his keys and sees him trying to run her down. Fairly certain Oliver is the Reaper, she leaves the room and is caught by Oliver.

Oliver chases her to the construction site and explains that he didn't want to hurt her by trying to run her down with his SUV and shoot an arrow at his head but merely scare her so she'd forget about his crush on Kenzie. She doesn't have time to figure out whether he is lying or not because he his shoot through the shoulder. The real Reaper reveals himself as Preston, Jasmine's older brother. Gwen pieces together that he's been living in the construction site and lying to her in order to kill her. liver uses his phone to text someone for help during which time, Gwen tries to fight off Preston to distract him. She looses but Logan comes to the rescue. Logan and Preston spare but Logan gets seriously hurt without a sword of his own.

Oliver texts someone else and tells Logan and Gwen to run. They get some distance but are forced to stop because Logan is bleeding so badly. Gwen explains to him about how she can channel someone with her magic. She kisses Logan and uses his magic to fight and defeat Preston. During that time, Preston reveals that most of the seals to Loki's prison are free. The teacher's tell her that they are going to keep Preston at the school prison and question him. Oliver apologizes to Gwen which she accepts along with his offer of friendship. Back at school, Professor Metis asks Gwen to use her magic to question Preston. She agrees and learns that Preston and Loki's Champion, a girl, killed her mother and that Metis and her grandmother knew all along.

She runs out of the room and goes to the library where she meets Nike again. Nike reveals that what Preston said about the seals on Loki's cage is true and that the dagger that Preston and Loki's Champion were looking for is the last seal. She must find it and hide it better than her mother.Logan finds her later and they just sit here together. After making up with her grandmother and Metis for keeping the secret of her mother's murderer, Gwen decides to keep using her magic on Preston. Winter break finally rolls around and everyone leaves for a while. Logan is last to go and tells Gwen that he and Savannah broke up and gives her a present he picked out for her, promising things will be different when they get back. The snowflake necklace holds all the ownderful memories she and Logan have shared and Gwen feels like there is still a lot to do but for the moment, she is happy.
