Description: Professor 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. . . 

I Give This ...

I've been eagerly awaiting another installment in this series.   I thought I would tide myself over with this short story.  Especially since it's told from Logan's view point.

I do enjoy getting the story told from another view point.  I think it bring new insight to characters you think you know really well.  I thought I had Logan pretty well pinned down.  I did not expect him become slightly self destructive.  He's so hung up on the fact that he tried to kill Gwen that he can't get past it.   I think he's horrified by the idea that his actions were so easily taken over by another.  He's afraid to let himself be put in a position were that could happen again.

I don't think the answer is to immerse himself in his training and let himself be used by the Parthenon.  He also really needs to realize that he hurting Gwen more by keeping away.

The only true downfall is obviously this is short.  I wanted more of this story (especially since we get a little cliff hanger) and I wanted more of Logan.  But, it was enough to gear me up for the next book, which comes out soon!
