Spider and Frost by Jennifer Estep

When an Assassin... ...Meets a Champion

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Estep delivers an epic team-up featuring beloved characters from her Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series and her Mythos Academy young adult series. This crossover novella, Spider and Frost, mixes magic and mythology in an action-packed adventure. Perfect for fans of Ilona Andrews, Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Rick Riordan.


My name is Gin Blanco, and I’m on vacation. Sort of. As the assassin the Spider, it’s hard for me to completely relax, but I’m determined to enjoy a scenic train ride and a nice, quiet lunch before heading back home to Ashland.

My plans change when Gwen Frost boards the train. The girl says she’s heading back to Mythos Academy, the fancy private boarding school, but I can’t shake the feeling that Gwen is hiding something—and is in far more trouble than she realizes.


My name is Gwen Frost. I might have saved the world from Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos, but I’m still chasing down Reaper villains. It’s all part of being the Champion of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.

I’ve been assigned to protect some mythological artifacts that are being transported via train to Mythos Academy, but some Reapers are hot on my trail, and they’ll do anything to recover the artifacts—and kill me.

Also on the train is Gin Blanco, who claims to be the owner of the Pork Pit barbecue restaurant. My psychometry magic keeps whispering that there’s more to her than meets the eye, although I can’t tell if Gin is a friend, an enemy, or something else entirely.

Author’s Note: Spider and Frost is a crossover novella between the Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series and the Mythos Academy young adult series. It is told from the points of view of Gin Blanco and Gwen Frost.

Spider and Frost takes place after the events of Last Strand, book 19 in the Elemental Assassin series.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Spider and Frost is a crossover novella featuring the Elemental Assassin and Mythos Academy series. To avoid any and all confusion, as well as spoiling the story, I suggest being up-to-date on both series. Both are amazing series in their own right, highly entertaining. Don't miss out on the journey by reading this crossover novella without reading both series from start to finish.

I adore crossover stories, especially when I was a fan of both series. Highly entertaining to watch Gin and Gwen interact with one another, the story told in dual points of view. Our favorite fierce ladies are on the same path, attempting to stop Reapers with their magics, but they just don't trust one another at first. So it was beyond fun to watch them get to know one another. They make the best of partners, each bringing something different to the table, balancing their strengths and weaknesses.

Read in one sitting, exciting yet lighthearted, the pages turned quickly. Not that the story wasn't satisfying, but I do wish it was longer than a novella, simply because I enjoyed Gin and Gwen teaming up so much. I hope we get more stories from this pairing.

I will say, if you read this novella, before your reach the end, you'll be hankering to start both series from the beginning. A tall order, but I'm already planning to do just that when I get a chunk of free time.
