Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep
Narrator: Tara Sands
Length: 10 hrs

Date Read: August 2013

Genre: Paranormal, YA

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…

My Thoughts on


Read/Listened for Fun (Library/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.25
Story Rating: 4.00
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 3.50 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thoughts when Finished: Nothing like a little arrest to make you realize that the game has stepped up to “no turning back now”!

Story Thoughts: Poor Gwen! The girl just can’t catch a break even when on her very first date with a hot Spartan. Heck, even Logan needs a break because not only is it his dad doing the arresting but he has to relive some old family trama. Overall, Crimson Frost had political intrigue, family issues, and growing pains for Gwen and Logan. This was a game changer in their relationship and also how the world at large plays into the fight. Needless to say, it was a nail biter.

Character Thoughts: I like Gwen! She is spunky, smart, and just downright original. I also really like Logan. He is smart, strong, and not perfect. For some reason it is always important that the leads be flawed. I really like the adults (Grandma, Teachers) in Crimson Frost. They aren’t absent or uncaring. They show up! They are there! They are adults. Granted these kids are being taught to fight and take on above their age situations so the adults act accordingly but they are there. Gwen’s circle of friends are a big reason why Gwen is able to be kick ass. They have her back and I think a new one made the circle this time. Which is good because I liked him. The characters are what make this series shine!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Tara Sands / Release Date: 12-24-12

I liked Tara Sands narration of this series. She does a great job with Gwen and nails her spunk! The boys voices are less done well but her cadence works for them. This one had more of the guys so the audio rating is lower than normal. Overall this is one of those series that I half read/half listen too but the audio overall works for me.

Final Thoughts: Next one please!

  1. Jennifer

    This series is on my TBR, I really need to make some time for them. I also like Tara Sands as a narrator, so maybe I’ll use some future credits for this.

  2. Damn, that really sucks that she couldn’t catch a break. It seems that having a date with a hottie should automatically suspend all the crap in your life. Just IMO. Plus, yay for present adults!

  3. This is a good series, I am current on it and that isn’t often with a series. The romance drives me nuts though! I do like the secondary characters especially Grandma Frost and Daphne they do indeed make the series shine.
