Crimson Frost

For th moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I ’ d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to orget what had transpire, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I ’ d helped set free against my will.

I shall have nown 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 mo. The orst part is that pretty much anyon at Mythos Academy thinks I ’ m guilty. If I ’ m comin to brin out of his mess alive, I ’ ll have to wan it myself…

It as nly because I ha actually bored and resolved to clear my NetGalley reviews queue that I finally scrounged up some ugly clump of motivation to read Crimson Frost.OMFG was the first half of he book aggravating.

It was ad enough that Gwen was a pathetic excuse of a heroine, but when the Protectorate, the magical government, finally deigned to show up they turned out to hav a pathetic excuse of a law organization.

Where the fuck were these people in book 1?

End-of-the-world terrorists have hit the school and decided to kill a bunch of students, particularly Gwen, especially Gwen, Multiple fucking Times and you don ’ t even send at least an investigator? When they finally show up in book 4, they arrested Gwen and announced to the whol school that she ha a suspected Reaper.

Too many ethical issues there that I was horrified to stupor.3) How is announcing Gwen is a suspected Reaper to the ntire school going to sav the investigation?

What fucked up law enforcement protocols were the Protectorate following?

How the hell have these people managed to conceal the magical world from the humans all this time? 4) Recall that Gwen is a special snowflake, particularly that she is Nike ’ s Champion.

If being Nike ’ s Champion is not a sign of innocence, that Gwen is the chosen one to defeat Loki once and for bot, I don ’ t believe what is.

Honestly, I ’ m beginning to become racist against the deities and think Loki is not the las one who needs to be done away with once and for all.In sum, for las half of he memoir, Gwen sucked.

Her name is Gwen; use her fucking name.The last half of the bookI did not need the last half to be ba, but it was.

You don ’ t realize how rare it is for a YA protagonist to work in teams out of their own free will, who rel on their friends, who don ’ t wait till the end when things are desperate and bad to finally accept some goddamn help when the protagonist learn that their special snowflake status ain ’ t gon na save the day.

Gwen had her ass kicked book 1 through 3; it ’ s wearisome and pathetic.

It is scene when Gwen and Logan were battling to death at the beginnin.

I just wish there was ore of Logan or Daphne or Oliver.The last third of thi memoi was when the story bega to pick up- becoming more of thi series that I had enjoyed so much.

I just wan the whole book had been more about that than how unfair it was that Gwen had been blamed for everything.

Doctor: " What 's your problem, hon? " Me: " I like to ead books " Doctor ( looking at me astonished): " And what 's wrong with it, hon?

is thi memoi that really forces Gwen to be on her toes the entire time- from the econd she ’ s rrested and convicte of helping Loki, she has to focus on proving her innocence and then stopping Loki, and I eally ppreciate that focus not only because it brings her way less time to neurose over the social ins and outs of Mythos Academy, the thing of prett that dragged in the ther ooks, but also because it really helped improve the overall flow of thi story with far fewer interruptions.

( Oh, and unlike the previous books, remember not to skip the bonus materials at the beginnin, let 's just say there 's very important letter in there.) That doesn ’ t mean my criticisms of Dark Frost have all gone away though; something about Gwen ’ s propensit for long internal monologues with the same descriptions, rehashy explanations of old plots, and shallow and pretty generic explanations of the mythology for the first nove in a row still bothers me and ives me the impression that the books are sor of ‘ dumbed down ’ with the story being told ( by Gwen) instead of actuall being shown.

But I hink I coul finally see why the Mythos Academy books have ha so well received in certain quarters, I might criticize but I have to admit Jennifer Estep ’ s writing is also what makes these books so accessible.

BEFORE READING: Crimson is the colou of blood, right?

The necklace is so pretty:) AFTER READING: Oh there was a LOT of blood involved, all right.

With awesome fighting spartan skills.Logan and Gwen: They ’ re official!

When Logan called Gwen his ‘ irlfriend ’ I was squealing like a little schmuck.

So yeah, awesome.What I dint like:: Gwen ’ s monologues!

Gwen calling Logan “ Spartan ” as if he does n't have a name.
