At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

ARC Review/Giveaway-Crimson Frost (Mythos Academy, Bk 4) by Jennifer Estep


Crimson Frost
Publisher: Kensington
Release Date: December 24, 2012
Format: DRC
Source: publisher via Netgalley for an honest review

**WARNING** I do my best to keep all reviews as spoiler free as possible but because this is part of a series, some spoilers are unavoidable.

If you have read the previous books in this incredible series, you know that Gwen was tricked into freeing Loki (the big baddie) by Loki’s very own champion. Because of this, Gwen is facing the fallout that this has had on Mythos Academy and is arrested by the Protectorate. Gwen is put on trial and is quarantined to the school until she is either found guilty or not guilty. This makes it a little difficult to prove her innocence but with her faithful allies including her love interest Logan, maybe she stands of chance. The biggest obstacle in their relationship this time around is that Logan’s dad is the leader of the Protectorate and is NOT a fan of Gwen and her gypsy heritage. He also truly believes that she is not Nike’s Champion. Gwen starts to fear that the Protectorate has been infiltrated and is not so sure she has a chance at a fair trial.

Just another great addition to an already amazing adventure. Gwen and Logan of course seem to always have something that gets in the way of the growing relationship (getting arrested on your first date can put a damper on things). I liked how this time we got to learn a little more about Logan so if you are a super fan of Logan, this one is for you! Another great aspect is we are seeing more of the world that Estep has created. The Protectorate is first introduced and we witness the inner workings of their so called “judicial system.” There is also the characters that we have grown to love such as Metis, Nickamedes and Gwen’s grandmother and a few new ones, including my new favorite, Alexei.

Estep as always, throws the twists and turns that as a faithful reader, have come to love. If you haven’t tried this series yet and you love YA urban fantasy, then I highly suggest you start with the first book Touch of Frost (books should be read in order). For me, I will have to wait patiently for the next book in this series, Midnight Frost, due out in July.

I'm all for adventure and this one sounds full of it. A couple who faes some things to get in their way does make things interesting, maybe even funny at times :)
