Spartan Destiny by Jennifer Estep

This Spartan makes her own destiny...

Most kids at the Colorado branch of Mythos Academy know me as Rory Forseti, the daughter of Reaper assassins. Secretly, I’m a member of Team Midgard, a group of students and adults tasked with stopping Covington, the evil leader of the Reapers of Chaos. For me, the mission is a deeply personal one, since Covington is also the man who murdered my parents.

When my friends and I get a lead on a powerful artifact that Covington wants to steal, we think we finally have a chance to thwart the Reapers and stop them for good. Team Midgard comes up with a plan, but everything goes sideways, and I’m suddenly in the fight of my life.

My worst fears might have come true, but I know what my Spartan destiny is—to save my friends, or die trying...

Spoiler-Free Review

Spartan Destiny is the third and final (I believe) installment of the Mythos Academy: Colorado spin-off. Not only do I strongly suggest reading the series in order to avoid any confusion, but I also believe it best to start with Touch of Frost, which is the debut in the Mythos Academy series, fully developing the world building throughout all the novels.

Rory and her friends at Midgard are still on Convington's tail, attempting to stop his mission of gaining all the mythical artifacts necessary in his evil plot. There is a definite vibe of urgency, as if they fail this time around, all hope will be lost.

Over the past novel, Rory stepped out from her cousin's shadow and finally came into her own as the heroine and narrator of the spin-off series. Whatever insecurities plagued her have finally shifted to confidence in how she fits into life. Fierce, protective, logical, yet also compassionate and empathetic. Rory has the strength to get things done, even while her world is falling down around her.

There's a strong thread of friendship woven into the series, proving that you shouldn't have to do it alone – the relationships built are important. The shared laughter, joy, tragedy, and companionship are what make life worth living, worth fighting the good fight.

Everything in perfect balance, the thrilling action, the paranormal elements, and the emotional connections, I have enjoyed every book in the Mythos Academy series.

Highly recommend Jennifer Estep for both adult and young adult urban fantasy and fantasy. By profession, I can hear an author's voice underlying on the pages, but Estep has a way of writing strong characters that are individuals, where if I read a quote, I could figure out which character was speaking. No two narrators are alike across all of her series, which is what has me eager to pick up whatever she publishes next.

Young Adult age-range: 12+
