Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Return to Mythos Academy, where high-school student Gwen Frost is falsely accused of releasing the evil god Loki from his supposedly permanent imprisonment. If she is found guilty, it will mean her life. There are few surprises in this fifth entry in the series, but Gwen’s adventures as goddess Nike’s Champion are still entertaining reading, and her new task (matching warriors with weapons) promises plenty more action in the future. Good escapist fare for fans of Tera Lynn Childs’ Sweet Venom (2011) or Marley Gibson’s Ghost Huntress series. No need to read back volumes to enjoy the story. Grades 7-10. --Cindy Welch --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Customer Reviews

I really enjoy Gwen's relationship with these characters and how these relationships make her a much richer heroine.
Gwen and her friends including the lovely Logan brutally clash with the reapers of the god Loki in this age old fight of good against evil.
I loved the story line, the pace was fast and kept your attention from beginning to end, and the characters are great.
Always YA at Heart

I spent the first half of this book in utter frustration. I was still a little bit ticked by the end of "Dark Frost" and the new events that Gwen is thrown into in "Crimson Frost," made me seethe. In the midst of her long over due fist date with her Spartan warrior and hero of a boyfriend Logan, Gwen is arrested. The first half of this book reads like a Salem witch trial. The adults and students are basically yelling "witch!" at Gwen and blaming her for Loki's escape.

The charges against Gwen are pretty much the worst charges that can be brought against a member of the Pantheon. She's basically charged with treason and called a Reaper. The students of Mythos and even some of the professors turn against her and she becomes worse than the "gypsy girl," she is now the face of every Reaper who killed a family member or friend of the kids at Mythos. A good chunk of this book is pretty bleak as the threat of execution hangs over Gwen's head.

I enjoyed this installment of Mythos Academy more than I enjoyed its predecessor. While there are still moments where I slapped my forehead in aggravation, I thought that the characters smartened up. I still cannot believe that the library's security has not been heightened to Fort Knox levels, but I will just have to suspend my disbelief. The library is an important location and it is important for the bad guys to break in every single book and steal something. That is how the wind blows and it's time that I accept it.

I really enjoyed the fact that the characters seem to have matured. Daphne, Carson, Oliver and Logan stand beside Gwen through out her trial. They refuse to let the other students attack her and they never doubt her innocence for a moment.

From Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance

At A Glance
I just love Jennifer Estep so much. I think everything she writes is gold. This book was no different. But you know me. I found one or two things that bothered me. But I still loved every minute of Crimson Frost.

The Good
Here's The Story...
It was all going so well. A little coffee, a little flirty banter, a little murder accusation. Yeah, you heard me. Finally Logan and Gwen had a chance to go on their first date, then the Mythos Academy "police" came and took Gwen away for freeing the evil Loki from his prison and taking part in the Reapers overall mayhem and murder schemes. Now on trial for crimes she didn't commit, Gwen has to watch her back as every student at the school comes after her. But they aren't the only ones who want her dead. There is more to these accusations than meets the eye. Gwen has to figure out who is leading the charge against her and kill them before they kill her.

Nerves of Steel...
OMG. This book scared the crap out of me. If I were Gwen I would be hiding in a corner, rocking back and forth, trying to think happy thoughts. How Gwen faces her entire school, in which almost every student wants her dead, is beyond me. She may be self-deprecating, but we all know she has nerves of steel. I was so, so pissed when the Academy "police" took Gwen into custody, paraded her around and accused her in front of everyone without letting her state her side. It was horrible. Like a nightmare.

Trooper Gwen...
Gwen is a trooper though. She may break down internally, but she always keeps a brave face in front of everyone else. She follows her normal routine despite all the hate and accusations. Her friends also stay by her side through it all.

Format: Paperback
Gwen Frost, is a Gypsy girl, that attends Mythos Academy. Crimson Frost takes place right after Gwen accidently gives the power to Vivan (another Gypsy) the power to release Loki. Devastated by their failure but facing the future, life must go on... Until the Protectorate, the Parthenon's police force, charges Gwen with releasing Loki and killing the students that where slaughtered by the Reapers (Loki's minions).

In a blink of an eye Gwen becomes the most hated person at Mythos Academy, everyone has lost someone to the Reapers and to believe that Gwen is one of them causes all kinds of threats and attacks. Her core group of friends and the leading staff at Mythos knows the truth, but the persecution that Gwen endures is heart breaking. Can she prove her innocence before it's too late? Will she ever be accepted back in with her peers? Will she have the strength to defeat Loki and the Reapers?

I loved Crimson Frost! I stayed up into the wee-hours with this book because I did not put it down. I found Gwen and her friends marvelous, strong, brave and they still fought for the jerks who pretty ruthlessly tormented Gwen. I found myself so emotional attached to the characters, I cried... often. A must read! 5 Stars

Jennifer Estep has this annoying habit of creating an interesting world with potentially interesting characters and then rehashing the same story over and over. She did it with the Elemental Assassin series and now she's doing it with the Mythos Academy. This latest installment felt like a new skin put on an old story, but there weren't enough differences to make it interesting. The Mythos Academy formula is as thus: Gwen tries to get settled. Reapers show up and outsmart all of the good guys and are better armed and prepared. The academy's defenses fail. Gwen gets "feelings" but never seems to figure anything out with her brain. One of Gwen's friends (at least one) gets hurt. Someone betrays Gwen (and in this book, I could see who it was going to be a mile away). Gwen somehow survives, but the situation has gone from bad to worse. And in between books, the bad guys plot and scheme while the good guys . . . well, they go to school and act like teenagers, and otherwise apparently do nothing to prepare for their enemies. Then the next book rolls around, and it all happens again. I think that I'll buy first books by the author in any new series that she develops, and then just wait until the final book. Everything in the middle is just repetition.
