Mythos Academy, Book 4.5
Synopsis: 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…
Review: I was really happy to discover this novella. Indeed, it follows the events from the last volume and it allows us to discover the Logan’s point of view now that he has left school to try to collect his thoughts.
We never really had the opportunity to follow a story through his eyes and even though I love Gwen, it was very interesting to be able this time to learn more about someone else. The first chapter helps us to understand that Logan was well aware of all his actions during the last battle although he could not do anything or counter what he was doing. It broke my heart to see the person he became, guilty for everything that happened and unable to speak with Gwen now. He tries to escape his problems, but it seems really difficult for him and we hope he will be able one day to forgive himself for what he did.
It was really quite pleasant to read the story, as always with Jennifer Estep and I was glad to be able to read while waiting for the next volume. Of course, the novel only have a few pages and we can read quite fast. But I’m very curious now to learn more. Perfect for the fans of the series.
