Thijs and his older brother, Rik, are spending Christmas Eve at their uncle Yvo’s annual gathering. For Thijs, it’s the first time he’s been there in almost a decade.
Thijs has vague memories of the magical Christmases spent with his uncle. But he doesn’t know if the images in his mind of the enchantment that happened while he waited for Santa are dreams, memories, or the product of years of therapy for an accident he doesn’t remember. He just knows when he stopped visiting Uncle Yvo, the dreams stopped too.
Are his dreams of a prince waiting for him every Christmas Eve just dreams? Tonight might finally be Thijs’s chance to learn the truth.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
Oh this was so lovely! The way the author took the traditional Nutcracker story and made it her own was fabulous. The visuals were spot on and I loved the way she incorporated the Cast of Characters.
But I felt really let down by the way things played out. Just when I thought the story was gaining forward momentum and things would be revealed, it just ended in a very confusing manner. It was abrupt and left me with questions that were not answered. This story could have been fantastic but the abrupt ending killed it for me. Maybe there is meant to be a sequel?
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
