I’ve recently discovered this new series by Jennifer Estep that I’ve fallen in love with. It’s a spin off from her Mythos Academy series and although it’s probably best if you read the series in order, I haven’t and I haven’t had a problem with understanding the world.
The first book, SPARTAN HEART, features a character from the previous series, Rory Forsetti. Because of the events in the last book of the series, not a lot of people like her. Her family name is tainted but she is a warrior. And I mean that literally. She’s a Spartan warrior, something I don’t encounter much in books, let alone Young Adult novels but that’s just one of the things I love about this series.
The other thing about this series that I love is the strong voice that Estep has in this series. Rory’s narration reminds me a lot of Rose Hathaway, a fan favorite if you are into Young Adult vampire stories. Although the series captures the essence of different mythologies, I do think that they are comparable.
Rosy is just as badass as Rose is, but she has a more visible vulnerability that makes me sympathize with her more. The settings in both series are set in prestigious, specialized schools for their respective mythologies and of course, there’s always a forbidden love interest that makes everything more interesting.
It’s been a long while since I’ve been excited about a Young Adult series like I am with this series so I’m eager to see what Jennifer Estep has in store next. So if you have enjoyed the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, do make sure that you give the Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep a go and let me know what you think!
