Title: Crimson Frost
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Mythos Academy #4
Gwen is finally going on her first official date with Logan but as you can expect from her, things don’t end as planned. Now she has to deal with being on trial and trying to stop the Reapers.
This book was fast paced and seemed to fly by. As expected of Gwen, she has found herself in trouble again but this time from the Protectorate. I really wasn’t expecting this turn of events in this series but actually made for a really good story. I couldn’t put this book down and read it through in one sitting.
Gwen is totally a trouble magnet but she is also very protective of others. I love how even though everything is potentially falling apart around her she still strives to save people, especially her friends. She is definitely turning into a warrior. Also we really see Gwen’s friends step up in this one and I loved them even more for it.
I really enjoyed learning about the Protectorate in this one, even under the circumstances. The battle against Loki really heats up with this one and we see new betrayals, deaths, and trauma happen. This is a very fascinating world and I am loving it even more with every book. Estep really knows how to create a captivating world with great characters in it.
My only real complaint is Logan and Gwen’s relationship. I am getting tired of the constant back and forth drama that happens every time a Reaper incident occurs. But, I do feel it captures the essence of teenage relationship drama, which is accurate to the characters. I am just a bit tired of it at this point.
Overall, this was a suspenseful continuation of Gwen’s story against Loki. I am really looking forward to seeing what is going to happen next, especially with Logan.
