Synopsis:

I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.

Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.

Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good...or I am.

My rating: ★★★★★

This book was GREAT!! It's the final battle with Loki, and only one will come out on top...

Gwen's been through hell and back, and then things get worse. Loki and the Reapers endanger the life of someone Gwen dearly loves... This is the last straw for Gwen! She has just about had it with the Reapers, and their latest stunt has pushed Gwen over the edge! Gwen will do anything to rescue this person she loves... and when I say anything, I mean anything... Even maybe doom humanity. Okay, I may be exaggerating a bit here, but her decision seriously freaked me out! Anyway, more on that later ;) The time has come to end all this--it's either destroy Loki or get killed by him. Gwen's battle is about to begin, and with the help of her friends, they might just come out on top. Cross your fingers...

Guys, I probably don't have to mention how much I LOVED this book, right? ;) But just in case... I love the story, love the mythology (big DUH!), love Logan freaking Quinn... I just love it all! It is the best series EVER and it makes me so sad that it is over!! *sobs*

Killer Frost was full of action (as always), with all the reaper fighting, Loki fighting, and all the other fighting, lol. It was beyond suspenseful, with Gwen's crazy plan I was freaking about, whether said plan was going to work or not, and would she be able to defeat Loki? Gah! I was terrified for her!

And oh my gods all my other feels! Logan! My poor Logan! He kept reliving the horrible, terrible thing Loki did to him, and that just pulled at my heart strings! I honestly cried :( I just love him so hard! Just thinking about what happened to him in Crimson Frost and him remembering his fears in Spartan Frost is making me want to cry all over again!

Speaking of lovable, yummy guys, I LOVE Oliver and Alexei! Now that's a hot pair of guys... and they make such an adorable couple!! I also love the snarky Valkyrie :) She and Carson make such a cute couple, too! And man does Gwen have the most amazing friends ever! Seriously love every single one of them, including Nyx and Vic! We also got to see more of Rory, which I thought was great since I find her very interesting. Speaking of interesting, Nickamedes surprised me! Him helping Gwen? Um, what? Didn't see that one coming. He does start to grow on you after a while though ;)

And that ending? Holy wow! It was so surprising and twisty, full of sacrifices, with a very heartwarming flash-forward that put a huge grin on my face and brought tears to my eyes. It just made me very happy :)

I *heart* Logan and Gwen and this world (and the mythology) and I'm going to miss it all so much! I'm so sad that it's over, but man what a fantastic ending! I feel like a blabbed a lot but I just can't find the words to describe how much love I have for this series! Just go out and read this series! You'll see what I'm talking about ;)

(For the record, I used the word "love" about 12 times in this review... that should give you a hint about how much I, ahem, love this book ;))

  1. So very happy to hear you loved this one and it was the perfect ending to a series you love!
    Sounds very interesting with all the mythology and everytime you mentioned Loki in the review I kept on thinking of Avengers & Thor (Tom Hiddleston)'s Loki!
    Great review, Lili!
