Estep blends the perfect amount of action, romance and comedy. --"RT Book Reviews " 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. . .

My Thoughts:  I love Jennifer Estep's Mythos Academy Series.  Spartan Frost is a short novella which is actually told from Logan's point of view.  Logan Quinn is the Spartan hottie who is Gwen, the main character's boyfriend.  The story begins immediately after the events that occurred in Crimson Frost.  Distraught, ashamed, guilty, and angry at himself, Loki, his stepmother and the reapers, Logan can't face Gwen or his friends, so he has left with his father.  In Spartan Frost we get a glimpse inside Logan's head and get his perspective on the things that happen, how he is feeling now, and what how he plans to go forward.  Of course, they are always reapers to battle.  As this novella ends, story begins to unfold and lead into the next installment, Midnight Frost.  Spartan Frost is quick read that lives up to the expectations fans of Jennifer Estep have come to expect from this series.  I am looking forward to diving into Midnight Frost and seeing where she takes the story from here.
