Character Interview + Giveaway: Logan Quinn and Kiss of Frost


Today I have the pleasure of welcoming oh-so attractively arrogant Logan Quinn to the blog to answer a few questions for me. Logan is a Spartan who attends Mythos Academy with Gwen Frost, the heroine of Jennifer Estep's fantastic paranormal young adult series. Today just happens to be release day for Kiss of Frost which is book two in the series, and I think most of you might know by now that I'm a bit of a hardcore Jennifer fangirl, so I really can't say enough good things about this book (you can read my review HERE). Welcome to Supernatural Snark Logan!

What aspect of weapons training and fighting would you say Gwen is best at? What does she struggle most with?

I would say the Gypsy girl is good at improvising. Just when you think you’ve finally defeated her, she manages to do something to completely surprise you and get back into the battle. Also, she always keeps fighting no matter what. I admire that about her.

The Gypsy girl has definitely struggled with just learning how to fight and how to move from one position to the next. She hasn’t been training her whole life like the other kids at Mythos have, and you can almost see her thinking about what comes next and how she needs to move to attack or defend herself.

But she’s made a lot of progress in a short amount of time, and I’m really proud of her.

We’ve only got a few brief flashes of your painful past these first two books. Do you ever see yourself fully opening up to Gwen or anyone else in the near future, or is that part of you going to remain a mystery for a while longer?

Um, well, you see … *falls silent* I don’t know. I don’t like to talk about my past—to anyone.

If you had to pick a regular profession—something that didn’t involve honing your Spartan skills or defending the world against Loki and his Reapers–what might you be most interested in doing?

I’d want to be a police officer, a fireman, a bodyguard, or maybe even a doctor. Something where I could help and protect other people.

What is your greatest fear or your happiest memory?

One of my favorite memories is the day that I first ran into the Gypsy girl out on the main quad at the academy. Or rather, when she ran into me. I had seen her around campus, but I’d never talked to her until then. I liked how smart and sassy she was. It made me want to know more about her, and I’m glad she ran into me that day.

You and Gwen have a deliciously tense and somewhat rocky relationship that’s a little bit addicting for us as readers. Is there any one moment with her you would change? Something you would say or not say if given the chance to do it over again?

I wish I had said something different when she first asked me out. I was really harsh to her, and I didn’t mean to be. It’s just that there are things I don’t want the Gypsy girl to know about me—things I don’t want anyone to know about me. But thanks to her psychometry magic, she could easily find out all my secrets with just a touch of her fingers—whether I want her to or not …

Who's in love with Logan? This girl. For more information on Jennifer and both the Mythos Academy series and her urban fantasy Elemental Assassin series, you can find her here:

KISS OF FROST

Logan Quinn was try­ing to kill me. My Spar­tan class­mate relent­lessly pur­sued me, swing­ing his sword at me over and over again, the shin­ing sil­ver blade inch­ing closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes prac­ti­cally glowed with the thrill of battle...


I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Acad­emy, and I have no idea how I’m going to sur­vive the rest of the semes­ter. One day, I’m get­ting schooled in sword­play by the guy who broke my heart—the drop-dead gor­geous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invis­i­ble archer in the Library of Antiq­ui­ties decides to use me for tar­get prac­tice. And now, I find out that some­one at the acad­emy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword—with Logan’s help—I just might die by the sword...

  1. Logan wasn't my absolute favorite *guilty look* but I can see that he's definitely going to be growing as a character in book two! I think it's hilarious that he still calls Gwen "the Gypsy girl". :P
