About the book:

     I’m Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was–until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.
     Professor Metis and Nickamedes say that I’m fine, that Loki and the Reapers don’t have a hold on me anymore, but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk hurting Gwen again. So I’m leaving Mythos and going somewhere far, far away.
     I know Gwen wonders what’s happening to me, whether I’m safe. I can’t tell her, but this is my story. . .

What G & U are talking about:

     Gikany and Una have fallen in love with the Mythos Academy series.  We love Gwen and the world she inhabits.  We tend to get completely caught up in the stories and lose all sense of time.   Ms. Estep gives us a treat in this series with Spartan Frost – a short novella that gives us a glimpse into Login-freaking-Quinn’s mind.  If you are a fan of this series, this novella is a must read!
     Through this very short novella, we see how torn and broken Logan is over his betrayal of Gwen.  He is still reeling from being tricked by his stepmother and bound and controlled by Loki through a necklace, which causes him to almost kill Gwen – his beloved Gypsy Girl.  Spartan Frost is a bit of an emotional jaunt as we see Logan home with his father – with whom he has a broken relationship.  However, we are given a glimmer of hope at the end.  That is until you read the short snippet from Midnight Frost and become agitated at the peril Gwen finds herself in.  Our only complaint is that it was a novella… and we just wanted more!
     If you haven’t started the Mythos Academy series, you are seriously missing out.  This is a series parents can read with their kids (seventh grade and up) or as an adult to enjoy.  They are really just great reads.
