Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Book Description:

Seventeen-year-old Gypsy girl Gwen Frost has charmed readers with her snarky, self-deprecating voice and unusual powers since TOUCH OF FROST, the book that first opened the doors to Mythos Academy. With each installment, Jennifer Estep’s RITA nominated series has quickly gained popularity as word continues to spread about this school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where the students are taught and trained to become protectors of humankind when they “grow up.” In January 2013, Gwen returns with her gift of psychometry in CRIMSON FROST

Gwen should have known that her first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. She was prepared to get into a swordfight, or be ambushed by Reapers. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? She didn’t see that one coming. Gwen is accused of purposely helping the Reapers free the evil god Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against her is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks she’s guilty. If she’s going to get out of this mess alive, she’ll have to do it herself…

My Thoughts:
I loved this book!  Gwen and Logan are on their first date when the unthinkable happens...Gwen is arrested!  Not only is she arrested but she is accused of the terrible crimes her arch nemesis did.  The justice system in Mythos is much different than the world she grew up in but she is going to have to prove the case herself!
I loved the whole cast of characters!  Gwen is a bit out of step with the whole world she is still getting used to but she holds her own.  Logan is loyal as are all of her friends.  His father was a jerk but you could see the concern for his son throughout.  I thought the whole storyline was great and I want to go back and read the rest of the series and can't wait for the next one to come out!
I rate this a 5/5.  It was a great read!

Thank you to the publisher for the review of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
