I'm Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was--until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.
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. . .
When I heard there was going to be a novella from Logan's perspective I was really excited. I was furious with him for his choices at the end of Crimson Frost, so I felt like this novella was going to be the perfect look into his head to see what was going on, and maybe understand him better. Honestly though now that I've read it, I have to say my excitement wasn't exactly warranted. I guess I was just hoping for more than this novella allowed. I mean sure we got to see inside his head, but honestly it wasn't anything I hadn't already figured out from his prior actions via Gwen's perspective. Don't get me wrong, I understand that the guy is broken up about what he did while being possessed, but I just don't think that warranted nor excused his sudden emo behavior. Also the fact that he kept in touch with their other friends and kept asking them about how Gwen was, yet wouldn't even answer her calls, really infuriated me. I'm hoping that this depression of his gets out of his system soon as I like Gwen thought she could always count on him, and he's really let her down.
I've always been a big fan of novellas in a series and short stories as it is always nice to have those little extras that just don't have a place in the full length books. Yet, I'm not sure this one was quite necessary. Would I recommend this novella? Perhaps for die-hard Logan fans, but otherwise it can just as easily be skipped as nothing drastically important happens, so you won't miss anything if you just go onto the next real book instead.
