Crimson Frost Review

384 pages
Release date: December 24th, 2012

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will. I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming. I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…

Review (ARC):
I am extremely glad that I continued reading this series as it has only continued to get better! I admit when I first started reading this series I was not a fan, but I'm not the type to judge all books by their predecessors so I kept reading and this author made me a believer! These last two novels have been extremely well written and exciting. Even though Gwen isn't the best fighter she is still an amazing heroine who fearlessly takes on those who threaten her family and friends. There is a lot of drama as usual between Gwen and Logan which keeps the romantic aspect of the book interesting. This novel was full of turmoil and danger since Gwen finds herself being blamed for something she didn't do. It's interesting to see the way Gwen's friends react to her newfound situation, and not everyone is who they seem to be. The one thing I love about this novel is how it finds a way to incorporate different types of mythology into one story. It makes things more interesting instead of just focusing on one type. This novel builds into a climatic ending that left me hungry to see what happens next to Gwen and her friends. I definitely recommend reading this novel if you love mythology, magic, and action, but first check out the other three books in this series.
