Review: Crimson Frost (A Mythos Academy Novel)

Crimson Frost: A Mythos Academy Novel by Jennifer Estep



                Seventeen-year-old Gypsy girl Gwen Frost has charmed readers with her snarky, self-deprecating voice and unusual powers since TOUCH OF FROST, the book that first opened the doors to Mythos Academy. With each installment, Jennifer Estep’s RITA nominated series has quickly gained popularity as word continues to spread about this school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where the students are taught and trained to become protectors of humankind when they “grow up.” In January 2013, Gwen returns with her gift of psychometry in CRIMSON FROST.
Gwen should have known that her first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. She was prepared to get into a swordfight, or be ambushed by Reapers. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? She didn’t see that one coming. Gwen is accused of purposely helping the Reapers free the evil god Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against her is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks she’s guilty. If she’s going to get out of this mess alive, she’ll have to do it herself…
The USA Todaybestselling author of The Mythos Academy series (KTeen), the Elemental Assassins urban fantasy series (Pocket Books) and the Bigtime paranormal romance series (Ballantine), Jennifer Estep is an author­ity on fan­tasy lit­er­a­ture and cul­ture. She is a mem­ber of Romance Writ­ers of Amer­ica, Sci­ence Fic­tion and Fan­tasy Writ­ers of Amer­ica, and other writ­ing groups.

Review: It is always interesting to see where a series is going to end up, and this series finds ways to add new twists and turns to the ever expanding plot. In all honestly, I almost put the book down not because it was bad, but because it started to make me really heartbroken. I highly suggest you read the whole series before you read this one or you will be all kinds of confused. This was an very enjoyable read and I hearted how the main heroine had to rely on her friends and had to get herself of a very political sticky situation. I felt the whole story really added a new dimension to this developing character.
