Do Worry, Gypsy Girl, Everyone Will Fail To Save You

I’ve been In Deathed, so hellooo palette cleanser. (More) No spoilers!
------------------------- CLICKSummary: 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…
I have to say these Mythos Academy covers keep getting fiercer and fiercer, and I am SO DOWN with that. Which is why I ask myself what’s up with the fifth book? *flinches* Awkward chest and knife angle… NEW COVER MODEL… weird hairstyle… WHAT HAPPENED? But, I guess we’ll save my bafflement for when I actually read the next book.

You know, I wasn’t in any particular rush to get my hands on this book. You can attribute my requesting it to my Netgalley-happy fingers and a mild need for the next part of the story. Truthfully, when I was excitedly devouring this book, it was in hopes that this would be the last book. Gwen’s story feels just a tiny bit unnecessarily drawn out and I was eager to get movin’. As you might’ve already deduced, that is NOT what happened here. I can’t tell you if that adds to my half-disappointed half-satisfied reaction to Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep.

Ok, So What Had Happened Was: Gwen Frost found out her true purpose at Mythos Academy, making her feel worth something and a little less self-pitying. She’s made—claps for Gwen—a nice little swatch of friends who are all happy to support, defend, and hang with her. But now, there’s an enemy on the loose and his evil henchmen are sure making life difficult for our unremarkable heroine. Especially since she’s been accused of setting him free. Will Gwen and her friends manage to prove her innocence? Will she be able to save the day once more?

Not gonna lie: it would seem as this series gets longer and longer, I get more and more bored with all the side characters. Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep didn’t make anything better. When I said Gwen was unremarkable, I kind of meant in a GOOD WAY. She’s just your average high school student with the uncanny ability to witness events and experience emotions at a touch. She’s self-deprecating, brave, sarcastic, and, though the peeps at the Academy have given her NO REASON to be, kind. While she may not be the most adventurous protagonist in existence, she’s definitely a decent chick, you know, considering. It’s pretty easy to flow and mesh with her narration. As for everyone else? Her friends are like the dull wallpaper in your grandma’s kitchen—expected and warrants a passing glance. Except Vic the DTD (that’s Deadly Talking Dagger). He’s just too talkative and gungho about killing living things to be anything but the 30inch flat screen with surround sound in the living room. I’m just so OVER the nerdy band geek friend, the cocky SOBing love interest with a KILLA grin, and the menacing BFF who shoots sparks out of her hands. It even seemed like I could feed the villains their lines and cue their echoing cackles. Toss a new atypical someone at me, Estep.

To hammer home why I keep reading the series, I MUST discuss the plot—it’s FUN. Pure, undiluted fun, riddled with danger, battle, robe-wearing psychos who like to steal things and tote the complimentary torches for the evil dude, Greek god cameos, and mythology research. It’s a MYSTERY with action and deadly consequences and the overarching goal of MUST DEFEAT THE GUY. It’s all very intense and pageturnable when you’re reading it, trust me.

Am I in a big rush to get Midnight Frost? Personally, I wish this series finished back in book three. That’s not to say I won’t MIND reading more; I’m just not desperate. These characters don’t make me itchy to steal the fifth book off the presses. If you’re looking for a fun way to pass the time, though, this series is a stack of guilty pleasure that is quick to hack through.

I requested this title from K-Teen via Netgalley.

I've never read anything by Jennifer but this series does sound good and if I start it, I'll have a bunch of books to catch up on!

Also, it is a shame when they change the covers halfway through a series!

Don't you hate it when you have THAT many books to read? But, yes, if you're looking for light, fun, and mildly humorous then this will be a good series to read. And the mythology is pretty cool.

I guess I'll have to try my luck with this series again. I wasn't really into the first book, but people keep saying all these wodnerful things about it so I guess it's me and not Gwen. I used to love Estep's adult series but the last few installments completely disappointed me
I love how totally violet Gwen's eyes are on this cover. :)

I've never read ANYTHING ELSE by Estep and so this is my first delve into her world and writing. It's cool, exciting. It's just not particularly unique, which is why I get... BUGGED, at times. This is a FUN series, not a MUST READ series, ya know?

AND RIIIIGHT? That's why I opted to zoom in like that. THEY LOOK SO FREAKING COOL ;D
