How I got this book: ARC from the publisher via Netgalley

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. . .

Estep happens to be an auto-buy author for me. I fell in love with her Mythos Academy from the very beginning with her combination of present day, myths and legends, ancient bloodlines holding sway, intrigue, eternal politics, and boarding school. With each installment the tension and risk continues to increase. The events of the previous book, Crimson Frost, reviewed here took a few shocking turns.

In Spartan Frost, Estep decided to catch us up on Logan and his situation. This is a short e-novella from Logan’s point of view. It provides some interesting insights into his character and his struggles dealing with the events of the past. I was pretty sure that he was going to have some issues because several things happened that really shook his foundational beliefs. While I didn’t like the fact that Logan has to work through some things it was good to see him as having human flaws. I enjoyed seeing Logan’s thoughts and emotions as this novella progressed.

While this was a quick read, it packed a satisfactory emotional punch. I was very grateful when Estep did not reduce Logan and the aftereffects of his situation with an easy solution and fix everything by the end of the novella. In fact if anything I think she laid the seeds for potentially a more dangerous result. She also provided a tantalizing hint regarding a significant event that occurred back at Mythos that is making me super curious about the next installment. Spartan Frost demonstrated yet again why Estep is on my auto-buy list.

I give Spartan Frost a B.
