“Spartan Frost” by Jennifer Estep is a novella that depicts events that occur between “Crimson Frost” and “Midnight Frost” and centers upon Spartan youth Logan Quinn as he deals with the aftermath of his actions while under the control of the evil Loki. Unfortunately, Logan is always harder on himself than everyone one believes he should be and he is still working his way through his guilt even as he discovers that his relationship with his father will also benefit from them learning to get through this latest obstacle together. This novella should not be read as a stand-alone because there are a wealth of details that are pertinent and not spelled out but it gives a nice glimpse of Logan, his dad and the very competent Sergei and inari and whets one’s appetite for the next novel in the series. An enjoyable quick visit to the world of Mythos Academy.

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…
