Source: Author and netgalley for review
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…
My thoughts:
Although I was disappointed the cover wasn't a vision of Logan, this is his POV of what had recently transpired in the last book, Crimson Frost. I admit I have a love/hate/love relationship with this spartan, but it's been all love lately, so I was excited to get to this novella.

What I enjoyed in this short book was how you really get a glimpse of his feelings for Gwen and the havoc the last adventure played on his confidence. Not many questions are answered for the series, but this isn't a book for that... we just get a glimpse of Logan and his life.

However...

What I needed more of is... LOGAN! I would love to know more from his POV. Granted that would take a full novel and not a novella, so I'm hoping for more POVs. I will take more novellas. I would love to see something more romantic from him as well.

My only complaint is that parts of the book were a bit repetitive. Not so much that it pulled me out of the book, but enough to notice. My other complaint was that it was too short and ended abruptly. However, this is to be expected since it is a filler novella and not a novel.

I give the novella 3 1/2 stars. I can't wait to dive into Midnight Frost and I'm looking forward to more novellas (crosses fingers) from Logan's POV. :)

  1. I thought it was too short as well! Somehow it didn't fill me up with full Mythos meal but it was a tasty bite! (I might have a slight obsession with food metaphors...)

  2. Surprised by the cover which somehow seems ill-matched with the title.

    A shame this wasn't all it might have been, I get so frustrated when books end abruptly like this.

  4. I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book so I haven't continued with the series but it's good to hear that it's still entertaining fans. Despite the lack of Logan.

  6. LOGAN MELISSA!!!! Finally, we get inside his head a bit. Yes it was short, but I was so grateful to see what he was thinking and experiencing that I didn't even care we weren't with him long. YES to more novellas or just more of his POV in general. Such a great series:)

  12. It's odd that I never really got into this series. I liked Elemental Assassi up to a point, but this never worked for me, although I tried.
    But seeing all the enthusiasm from my friends is making me reconsier.

  13. I'm behind on this series but I'm excited to get some from Logans POV. It is weird hes not on the cover though...

  14. Oh no, it's too short but also repetitive? That's not a great sign. I'm so far from being caught up enough to read this, but I know when the time comes, I'll definitely do it. Great honest review!

  15. I skimmed, as I'm terrible and haven't started the series yet. Shame on me.

  16. I gotta check and see if I downloaded this one or not. I think I preordered it. Anyway, I love this series. Any amount into the inner workings of Logan's mind would be great. He's so hot and cold.
    I think I'll agree with everything you wrote. More of him could never be a bad thing!!
