{Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway} of Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Hey SNR followers, I hope you all are having a wonderful decemeber. I have a special treat for you today as apart of the blog tour for Crimson Frost, author Jennifer Estep has an excerpt for you!! I absolutley loved this next chapter in the series, each book just keeps getting better and better. Don't forget to check out my 5 star review!

Sergei stepped to one side and gestured with his hand. I hadn’t noticed him before, but a guy about my own age had followed the three men into the shop. He looked like a younger, taller, leaner version of Sergei, with the same hazel eyes, dark brown hair, and tan skin.
“Alexei, my boy, watch her,” Sergei said.
Alexei moved over to stand next to me. He wasn’t wearing a robe like the men were, but I could tell by the easy, confident way he moved that he was a fighter, a warrior whiz kid just like I was. Maybe a Roman, maybe a Viking, maybe something else. I had no way of knowing, and this wasn’t exactly the right time to ask.
“Alexei Sokolov?” Logan asked, more confusion creeping into his voice.
Alexei tipped his head at the Spartan, but he never took his eyes off me. “Hello, Logan.” He had the same Russian accent his dad did.
Logan looked at Alexei, then Sergei and Inari in their gray robes. Finally, he whirled around to Linus.
“What’s going on, Dad? Why are you here? And why are you arresting Gwen?”
Linus put his arm around his son’s shoulders. “Because it’s my job as the head of the Protectorate. You know that.”
Logan shook his head. “It’s your job to protect the members of the Pantheon, to hunt down Reapers and put them in prison where they belong, not show up out of the blue and harass my friend for no reason.”

Linus’s face tightened until it looked as hard as the stone fireplace behind me. 
“This—this girl is no friend of yours.” He spat out the words. “She’s the reason that Loki is free, and she’s going to stand trial and be punished for it—all of it.”
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…

Jennifer Estep is a New York Times bestselling author. Jennifer writes the Mythos Academy young adult urban fantasy series for Kensington. Crimson Frost, the fourth book, will be released on Dec. 24. Visit for excerpts and more information about her books.
