I have fallen in love with this series and the characters. Estep always keeps me enthralled with her storyline.

This book is probably my favorite in the series. I'm pretty sure I said that with Dark Frost, but I mean it this time! ;) The loyalty Gwen's friends show her is awesome. Even though she's accused of setting Loki free, her friends never leave her side. The rest of the students at Mythos behave awful towards Gwen. It kind of reminded me of the villagers storming Frankenstein's castle to kill the Creature. It saddened me that so many people believed what they were told without questioning the accusations. These folks should be ashamed of themselves.

The story pretty much follows Gwen doing the best she can to clear her name while staying out of trouble. (Easier said than done.) Of course, the Reapers want her out of the way, and have plans of their own. These plans have been set in motion for many years, and the person(s) behind it will shock you!

I loved the characters even more this go-around. Gwen is so strong and determined. I completely admire her. She also takes the reins and does what she can to save herself in these impossible situations, instead of relying on others. Logan is incredibly sweet. You begin to see just how deep his feelings are for his "Gypsy Girl." he also begins to face some of the issues he has with this dad, Linus. Now, let's move on to Linus. I wanted to smack the mess out of him many times. He's arrogant and condescending. He thinks he's always right, and doesn't take being wrong well.

You will need tissues, just sayin'. I think this books plays a key part in the events that are coming. ( )

I'm pretty proud of myself for finishing this as my third book this week :) So far, it's definitley the strongest of the series, though it was still fairly predictable. It needed more Logan/Gwen scenes, but I'm happy Gwen isn't some wussy girl anymore and has finally embraced her role as Nike's Champion. I'm looking forward to August when the next book comes out!

Wooow… This book is by far the best I’ve read from this series till now. The moment you start reading the suspense starts building. Suddenly nothing is a given anymore, there’s so much scheming going on, so many mind games… I couldn’t do anything but turn page after page. I just had to know if everything would be alright. But I wasn’t left alone for even one second to catch my breath. There’s so much happening that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat, while sincerely hoping for a happy ending. And I loved every minute!

Gwen’s task is slowly but surely revealed, finally . Although a stare in the face, it still get’s more interesting by the minute. With Nike’s guidance on how to complete her task, it looks like it will be about many different kind of creatures, so I’m thrilled and curious how everything will go. Which mythological creatures will I meet along the way? What will their stories be? I can’t wait to find out!

Talking about Gwen, she sure had a grow spurt in Crimson Frost. Finally no more idiotic or thoughtless behavior. Only well-thought plans and successful operations, well… most of the time. But you can’t expect miracles, can you Anyway she’s back to the spunk-ass heroine I liked so much in A Touch of Frost. Someone who’s willing to do everything she can for her friends. Someone who has her heart in the right place and knows what to do in dire situations. Now I can finally see why Nike chose her ^^


4 HEARTS. I liked this book so much more than the others. Everything those lacked, I could find here. It’s a stunning story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Cause it’s impossible to predict what will happen. And the only way to find out is by reading the next page. I was also very happy with Gwen, who made a tremendous improvement. No more annoying heroine! ( )

Review to come closer to release date ( )

NOTE: I received this book from Netgalley to review.

Firstly, I would like to say that I requested Crimson Frost before I even started reading this series. So then I decided it was about time I gave it a chance. But, as some of you may remember, and if not, just check out my review of Touch of Frost, the very first book flunked my expectations. I was too disappointed to even express my feelings properly.

So, naturally, I decided that I should just abandon all attempts on the Mythos Academy.

And yet!

And yet, when I saw Crimson Frost on my Netgalley shelf, I thought: "Why the heck not?" I mean, even if it was bad, it couldn't be worse than book one, right?

Truth is, that I was surprised in two exactly opposite ways.

On the positive side were several things:

1. It turned out that skipping the two books in between didn't affect my understanding of the events so far. So yay! I was up to date with no reason to go back and read books 2 and 3.

2. The story had actually progressed nicely over a span of several months, and I saw that finally, after three whole books, Logan and Gwen were on their first date. Wow!

Unfortunately there were negative sides too:

1. The descriptions were too long, to the infinitesimal detail, which wasn't interesting to me, so I found myself skipping over them most of the time. Because, honestly, I remembered quite well from the first book what the Library of Antiquities looked like (and other places too). There was no need to describe every small detail every time Gwen entered the place. After the second time around it just got boring. I don't know about other readers, but I'm certain I don't need to be reminded where each shelf and case and statue stood. Besides, that's quite irrelevant to the story.

2. The author's research on the Bogatyr warriors wasn't accurate. They weren't Russian warriors, as she said they were. They were Slavic and Mongolian knights, who fought while horseback riding. No two swords and whatever else Alexei was supposed to be fighting with. You may wonder why I'm even mentioning this, but I hate it when an author includes half true info about things that exist in the world. I mean, either do it all the way, or don't do it at all.

About the characters, here's what I have to say:

*Gwen* has grown into a slightly more bearable person. She was quite annoying in the first book, but I see that she's progressed. She isn't completely dependable on others and stuff. However, she's still lacking some sense of logic.

*Logan* is still this freaking super warrior, but he's also quite messed up on the inside. He seems to be quite strong, and yet unable to deal with guilt even when he's been forgiven for things he wasn't accountable for anyway.

*Alexei* I guess was nice and all that. I did totally want to smack him on the head when he didn't bother to defend Gwen, but oh well, he had his orders and such.

Anyway, with all that said, I still think the novel was good enough. I don't think I'd be reading on though. ( )
