Here we go again … Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead. As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …

Gwen is now back at Mythos Academy after her loss of her favorite Spartan. Gwen is heartbroken and moping around all day, which I didn't like to see. I could understand why she was so. But never fear! She springs into action when something bad befalls upon Nickademus and immediately goes on a mission to bring back an antidote to heal him.
In some parts of the novel, I had the feeling that this series is getting too long and that they were never going to defeat Loki. I mean, which is going to be the final installment? Book six or seven hopefully? In this book, they had to go find a cure for Nickademus who was poisoned. They had a week for a deadline and they had to go to a place that was said to be cursed. There wasn't much artifact hunting in this book much, but by the end, you can see how they're a step closer to victory against Loki.
Overall, the book is okay. I must say Logan is terribly missed because he's one of my favorite characters. Now every thing is back on track with Gwen and the gang, I can't wait to see what they do next in book six!
My name's Ariella and I'm a 14 year old Canadian girl that loves to read. Everything began with a book called the Lightning Thief and from there I was hooked. I enjoy and read all kinds of genres but my favourites are paranormal and mythology. I love reading YA books but I love Middle Grade books as well. I also blog over at Secrets of Lost Words.
