Review: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Crimson Frost A Mythos Academy Novel By: Jennifer Estep
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…
Gypsy Girl Gwen Frost has finally gotten her wish! She is on a date with Logan Quinn. Gwen has waited a very long time for this moment and is so happy and babbling like an idiot. Things finally seem to be going her way, until her luck catches up to her. She is suddenly surrounded by members of the Protectorate who are accusing her of a crime she knows she did not commit. Freeing Loki, the evil spirit that wants to take over the world as we know it. Gwen finds herself publically humiliated at a school assembly and is forced to face the Mythos Academy students, who are now all against her and believe she is evil. To make matters worse she also now has a shadow, Alexei, who is showing no signs of helping her fight back. Hopefully she is able to prove to the Protectorate that she is not the one to blame, and find out who is in the process.
Another fabulous addition to the Mythos Academy series. Crimson Frost does not disappoint with it’s action and drama filled pages. You do not have to read the previous books but it would help you understand the history and the background for this book, in addition to them being really great reads as well.  Gwen’s character continues to grow in this novel as she is forced to face more challenges and her relationships are tested. She shows that she is a no nonsense girl with the ability to fight for herself, her friends, and even those who are not nice to her. This is the perfect high school and up read, and I promise you will not want to put it down.
