Drew McLean has had a run of bad luck and it’s dampened his Christmas spirit. But the last thing he expects to find for the holiday is a demon.
While strolling in the late-night snow, Drew hears screeching tires and a sad scene is awaits him around the corner. A man kneels beside a dog hit by a car, distraught and broken.
The man is Artem, a demon sent to find a pure soul. Drew matches that description to a T. The problem is Artem’s never really been good at the demon gig.
Will a little Christmas magic help them both find what they’re looking for?
I found Old Christmas Magic by Kassandra Lea surprisingly moving. The story of a demon who doesn't wish to actually be a demon and is tormented because of his actions that betray his feelings is poignant and one that amazingly works as a holiday story. Sent to earth for one final mission to prove himself, Artem is distraught, knowing he doesn't fit in anywhere. The author makes Artem someone we connect with emotionally as we see him suffer over the plight of the dog, his feelings about Drew who helps them both and Christmas the time of the story.
The characters are well done, the events flow to help you understand Artem's plight, his growth and joy at discovering Christmas and the relationship being built between himself and Drew.
My only issue is at the end. The author strove for the HEA and included an insta love element when really none was necessary or believable. Leaving Drew and Artem at starting a relationship, finding each other at Christmas, having Artem learn that he did have a place somewhere after all, well, that would have been perfect. Sometimes a HFN is all that's called for. A HEA turned this story from a potentially great story into a nice one.
Still, Old Christmas Magic is a different take on the holiday fare with a demon finding his Christmas magic when he had none at all. Lovely.
Cover art is different. Artem is all broken and battered, definitely not wearing a golden mask. But the car and the street is a element from the story and its eye catching, that's true.
I really enjoyed how Artem explored and experienced the world, showing us how many wonderful things there are that we take for granted. Drew also showed us that there are people in this world who care, and are willing to go beyond their own lives to help others.
Overall it was a heartwarming story with a good HEA ending. Very much enjoyed it!
