Title: Spartan Frost (Mythos Academy, Book 4.5)
Author: Jennifer Estep
Grade Reading Level: Ages 14+
Summary: What Logan Quinn is up to right after he leaves Mythos Academy. He deals with his angst over being possessed and almost killing Gwen.
Why I started this book:
Love the series and asked for the book as a Christmas present, which I got. Thanks, Mom!
- I enjoyed Logan’s point of view (POV) of what happened the day he almost killed Gwen in Crimson Frost (Book 4). His worry, guilt, and concern over hurting her and how he could potentially hurt her again is very sweet and tender. Logan truly cares for Gwen.
- It’s a highly important novella in terms of defining what is going to happen between Gwen and Loki. I wonder if you will be able to figure it out as it is purposefully oblique. I only recognized it after reading Killer Frost (Book 6).
- I am happy that Logan and his father, Linus, are working to repair their relationship. A boy needs his dad. A dad needs his son.
- I like that Logan was as obsessed getting information about Gwen as she was about him. Poor Oliver stuck in-between those two! But Logan/Oliver should not have kept the information a one-way street. Gwen deserved to know more too!
- No Gwen! She’s present in Logan’s thoughts but not on page! Darn. I was hoping for that. A gypsy girl has got to knock some sense into a Spartan somehow, right?
- Not long enough – should have brought us to the point where Logan meets up with Gwen in Midnight Frost (Book 5).
