Blogger Note: This is a combined review for the last three because frankly I can't imagine just reading one of the series, for this reader its all or nothing and as I've broken the series into 2 parts for my Saturday Series Spotlights on my blog I decided that's how I would divide up the reviews as well.
Having read the first three books in less than 2 days time and seeing as the final book wasn't released until the 20th, I decided to wait until the 19th to begin #4(Loving Blitz) because I knew that once I started Loving I would go directly into Disarming Donner(#5) and then I'd have a heartbreakingly near week-long wait for the finale, The King's Courage. So anywho, on to my second half series review.
As with so many series that each installment centers on a different couple, it takes a couple of chapters to get into each new pair because I'm just not ready to let go of the previous duo. Well, North Pole City Tales was no different really but seeing as this is more of a holiday novella series, I tried to open my heart before beginning each new entry and it worked because Cupid/Blitzen, Donner/Calder, and Dasher/Eirik were all brilliant. I just can't get over the creativity and imagination the author put into this Christmas universe. I know I touched on it in my review for the first three but seriously, Rein Dear Squadron, Toy Solider Army, Elves, King of Frost, and my personal favorite the Mayor Kringle. Its just such a unique take on the legendary characters we've come to love with the holidays and a wonderfully adult version that sets your pulse racing.
If you are looking for something different and yet scream Christmas spirit than North Pole City Tales is worth checking out. Don't think though that just because I said it screams Christmas spirit and is full of characters we were introduced to as children that its all happy happy with no drama because there is just the right amount to make NPCT a well rounded heartwarming journey. I wouldn't call it angst but there is some drama but there is also humor, lust, friendship, and tons of love. Now that the author has written the finale, if you haven't read it this is the perfect time to start. Charlie Cochet has once again proven that we are never too old to let the holiday magic into our hearts.
I have read books twice as long that hasn’t been this detailed. The writing makes you feel like you are there with them and experiencing what they are doing and feeling. I love this play on the North Pole and Santa and his eight reindeer. Except, instead of their being reindeer, they’re the fabulous Rein Dears who are elves and work at North Pole City in the Rein Dear Squadron under the watchful eye of Mayor Kringle.
In the sixth book in the North Pole Tales series, we get the wedding of Jack Frost and Rudy Rein Dear which is only three weeks away. Everyone travels to Jack’s palace in Svalbard, Norway, where the happy couple will exchange vows beneath the northern lights. There are festivities planned that lead up to the wedding, and Dasher Rein Dear, a Christmas elf, eagerly anticipates the fun. He also is eager to stay under the same roof as the blustering winter spirit who’s caught his eye, the King of Frost, Jack’s father. Dasher meets the King of Frost, Eirik, in the fourth book, Loving Blitz, when they were searching for an Elska rose and the King of Frost happens to have one. Dasher has been fascinated with him since then.
But a long-ago tragedy has left Eirik afraid ever to love again. As the King of Frost, Eirik maintains his distance from everyone, including his only son, Jack. With everybody coming to the palace he’s forced to interact during the festivities and is worn down by the young Christmas elf who insists on intruding on Eirik’s solitude. Dasher is determined to find a way to show the lonely king that his heart still beats and he shouldn’t fear to allow it to beat for another.
I loved watching Dasher force Eirik to come out of his shell and have fun again.
They are a great couple that compliments each other. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series, and I have already picked up the first two book in the series to get started. If they are as good as this book is then I will be a happy camper. I would like to thank Levi Read for allowing me the honor of reviewing this book since he usually snaps all of Charlie’s books as fast as they come out and claims them as his precious.
