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.

I know Gwen wonders what's happening to me, whether I'm safe. I can't tell her, but this is my story. . .

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—"I was going to kill her. I wanted to kill her-more than anything else." Logan Quinn remembers being under a spell cast by his stepmother and attacking and nearly killing Gwen Frost, the girl he loves. Logan is a deadly Spartan warrior and student at Mythos Academy, which trains students with mythological powers. He is racked by guilt and has retreated to the home he shares with his father in New York. After such a riveting, intense beginning, the rest of this e-novella feels like a sedate series of events. Through the teen's narration, readers learn more about him and his father. It turns out that Linus is the head of the Protectorate, the group that is responsible for tracking down and getting rid of the evil Reapers. When Reaper activity is reported in the vicinity, Logan joins his father and two other Protectorate members to track down the villains. After they deal with the situation in New York, something occurs that puts Logan's friends at the academy in great danger. The story comes to an abrupt end at this point. Familiarity with the "Mythos Academy" novels is necessary to understand fully what is happening here. The short format does not allow for in-depth characterization, detailed plot, or very much action.—Mary Oluonye, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH

    Finally!!!!! We get a glimpse inside Logan's head. This is after events that take place in Crimson Frost. If you haven't read that, then don't read this one.

    Poor Logan is messed up after what he did. Even though everyone tells him the attack wasn't his fault, he feels like it is. he also seems to become a little closer to his dad. Which is a good thing. He is allowed to go on a assignment with his dad when they find a Reaper hideout.

    It is great getting a peak into Logan's thoughts, but the cliffhanger in this novella is brutal! I mean seriously!!!!! Sorry this is so short, but this novella is very spoilery.

    I love Jennifer Estep's Mythos Academy Series.  Spartan Frost is

    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.

    I love Gwen and this book is almost perfect. I have a few issues

    I love Gwen and this book is almost perfect. I have a few issues with this cover and if you're following this series, we both now this is so not a guy. But anyway I missed Gwen in this little novella and it’s actually funny, but I never hated Logan, even after everything he did in the last book, I’m not saying what!!

    Logan is actually perfect, because he never knows about anything and he was clearly betrayed, so more pity and that is exactly what he’s running from. He is in love with Gwen but after the way he acted and how much he was hurt her, it’s actually understandable seeing him trying to put some distance between them, but I liked knowing his doubts and he’s clearly trying to get back on his feet.

    So this was a nice little insight to Logan POV and I liked seeing him torn about Gwen.

    Spartan Frost is Logan Quinn's short story, this takes place aft

    Spartan Frost is Logan Quinn's short story, this takes place after Crimson Frost. 

    Logan Quinn is the strongest warrior in Mythos Academy, possessed he almost commits the most heinous crime...killing Gwen Frost and his friends.

    Removing himself from the academy and all his friends, Logan has lost faith in himself. He is living with his father and they soon discover that the Reapers aren't done and the battle is far from over.

    Spartan Frost is great insight into the mind of Logan after is ordeal. It might be short but it packed a punch...giving us just enough that make us want to beg for more! The Mythos Academy is a wonderful young adult series. Anxiously waiting for Midnight Frost coming July 30, 2013. Midnight Frost

    I received this ARC copy of Spartan Frost from Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication June 25, 2013.

    Too much of a teaser

    Headline says it all. Just 49 pages and while the insight to Logan's mind and attitude was great it was way too short.

    The much anticipated e-novella from Jennifer Estep has come! Lo

    The much anticipated e-novella from Jennifer Estep has come! Logan’s POV is something fans of Estep’s Mythos Academy series have been patiently for. Although I wish that it wasn’t such a short insight into the tortured Spartan, most fans will be slightly satisfied.

    I don’t want to give much away and it is hard to write a review on something that is about 46 pages long so in short Estep gives her readers a look into how much Logan is beating himself up about what he did when his body was controlled by Loki. The emotionally impact that Estep packs into this novella will have you wanting more and looking forward to the next book in this series, Midnight Frost.

    Because I love these books so very much, it was amazing to get

    Because I love these books so very much, it was amazing to get a tiny bone like this novella thrown my way. Thank you, Jennifer Estep, for giving us a small taste between the big bites. I loved this novella.

    First of all, it's all about Logan, which I love, because hey... who isn't absolutely in love with Logan? After the ending of the last book, it was really great to see inside Logan's head and get an idea of what his emotions are right now, and what he was thinking at the end of the last book. Being in his head was a really cool place to be. We get a deeper key into who he is, even in such a short period of time.

    This novella answers some questions that were left in the last book, and it also gives you a bit of an idea of what might be in store in future. I think it's perfectly possible to read the next full length book without having read this, yes, but this adds something to the next book that I didn't realize I would need when I read the Midnight Frost. So this is a great companion.

    Logan lovers will not want to miss it. The writing is exactly what we've all come to expect from Jennifer Estep! Look for my review of Midnight Frost tomorrow.
