Goodreads Description:
 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…

My Review: 
    The Mythos Academy Series is one of my favorites. I just know picking it up that I will get something action packed, full of mystery, humor and just some really fabulous characters that I have come to love over the course of the series.

And of course this latest book is no different. I love that as soon as I pick up a new installment I feel like I am going back to visit some old friends that I have really missed seeing and talking to. I love being immersed in Gwen's world.

Just when I think this series couldn't get better Jennifer proves me wrong. This book was by far the best yet. I have a hard time putting them all down but this one, especially, made it not just hard but down right painful to put down.

I love all the Logan Gwen time we get even though there is so much happening in Gwen's life right now. I love how Logan stands up for her and how he really starts to show his feelings to her. If I didn't already like him from the previous books, this one would have clinched the deal. The Spartan is definitely swoon worthy but in a total kick butt kind of way.

Sometimes it seems like the motives of the bad guy and what is going on is totally predictable and then Jennifer will throw in a new twist and you are back at square one trying to figure it all out. There is a lot going on in this with Loki and Vivian free and out for revenge and there is a lot more at stake than ever before.

I love the direction the series is headed. I love how much Gwen has grown. I love her fierceness and her goodness. I love that only only Gwen but all the characters are growing, even Grandma Frost. I loved seeing her jump into the battle and have Gwen's back. She is one tough cookie!

Really this whole series is just fantastic and I absolutely can not wait for the next book. With some things ending like they did, I want more. I want to see more of everyone, but especially of a certain fierce kick butt Spartan.


  1. Awesome review! This was such a great book.

  2. I haven't read Dark Frost yet, but its on my read soon pile of books (yeah I only have a few of those piles around...). I'm really happy to hear that the series is only gaining steam and getting better and better!
    Merry Christmas!

  3. I'm adding this series to my must read list. Awesome review.

  4. CRIMSON FROST holds a spot in my heart as a guilty pleasure read - a guilty pleasure that I LOVE when I know that I probably shouldn't love it as much as I do. It's action-packed and a thrill-ride full of swoony moments and snark. The Mythos Academy series is a must read for light hearted paranormal action.
