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…

CRIMSON FROST is book 4 in the Mythos Academy series by one of my favorite Authors Jennifer Estep. Gwen has done a lot and come a long way from book 1 so I would definitely suggest starting the series from A TOUCH OF FROST so you can get the full effects of Gwen and the world in which she lives in. 

The reapers are once again causing trouble for Gwen and her allies, they somehow convinced everyone that Gwen is Loki's champion and working for them and she is now under arrest and awaiting trial. Gwen continues to grow in her role as Nike's Champion. She has a way of figuring out just about every obstacle that is thrown at her even if its after trouble has gone on a little to long. She is always the first to fight for those she sees the need to protect and is very easy to relate to. Even with the troubles she faces in book 4 she is still fiercely worried about other. I continue to love all the characters in the series. Gwen's Grandma as always continues to surprise me and I enjoyed the addition of Alexei to the series. The love story that is Gwen and Quinn just cant seem to catch a break, it makes me sad and I'm not sure what could possibly happen to them next. 

The ending left a lot open and a lot to consider for multiple characters. CRIMSON FROST was a great addition to the series and as always I'm excited to continue the story. Book 5 MIDNIGHT FROST is set to release in July 2013 and I will be one of the first to try and get my hands on it. 

I gave it 4/5 stars
