Crimson Frost: Review


For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.

I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.

I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…


The best so far! I mean, it's one hell of a kick, being arrest like that! In this book, Gwen faces the possibility of being executed because of a crime she didn't commit (why does this sound like Last Sacrifice?). She need to get the charges dropped fast or her death will cause great chaos. 

This time, Gwen changes so much. Because of her charges, pretty much every one (excluding her friends, of course) turn against her. She's tougher and more mature because she doesn't just act on her anger and frustration and storms up to pick on someone even though I can see she very much wants to do so. I can see her growing up and guess what? I like this kind of changes. But her snarkiness is still there which is a relief. Gwen is, well Gwen because she IS herself and I appreciate that.

Crimson Frost is more emotional than before and the action scenes are more focused in just a part of the story. I don't know if that's a good thing to me. On one hand seeing more emotions from Gwen or other characters delights me because in the previous three books, things are... easier. On the other I can hardly stand some of the sudden emotional attack and I... kinda loathe it because I want something mentally peaceful to read these days. Maybe I will appreciate this act more in the future (or in the past....), but not now.

The best part of the book is probably the last part, which is the battle part. Oh, it fits to say the book ends with a bang! Not only WTF moments are guaranteed, intense adrenaline flow is nearly kick started in my veins! I mean, (SPOILERS! AVOID THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CRIMSON FROST YET!!!) Gwen is stabbed in the chest by Logan freaking Quinn and nearly died. (END OF SPOILERS) Need more than that? (Actually maybe I do, because I crave for blood and violence ha ha ha <<<laughing in a evil way)

Crimson Frost is the best so far. I've read Spartan Frost and I will post a review... maybe sooner than you thought. I'm reading Midnight Frost right now and let's see if this book will be even better than Crimson Frost.

Rating: 8.5/10
