Free: I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas | [Molly Harper]

Free: I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas

It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow. And then there's the small matter of the handsome, frustrating vampire who keeps appearing in Gigi's peripheral vision, then disappearing before she can talk to him. Can the Scanlon sisters negotiate romantic problems, vampire politics, and Christmas cookie disasters and enjoy a relatively normal holiday?

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Clever Christmas Cheer!"

    Don't miss this free holiday gift from Molly Harper -- it's delightful. If you're already following the series, you will recognize many of the characters of Half Moon Hollow. If you're not, it's time you're introduced. This is not the usual romance story -- more like just a holiday gathering of the whole wacky group. It is told from Gigi's viewpoint and is full of the usual humor and snarky remarks between characters, plus there are some holiday recipes given at the end. Amanda Ronconi is awesome as usual.

    Take advantage of this free download and add some fun to your Christmas season!

    "A quirky & snarky Halfmoon Hollow Christmas gift"

    A Halfmoon Hollow Christmas gift from the wonderfully quirky & snarky pen of Molly Harper.

    If you haven't read any of Molly's work before then I suggest you give your self an early Christmas present and do so now, starting with Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1.

    I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas is a short story that manages to bring together all your Hollow favorites and covers Gigi's return home to the Hollow from college and to her married recently turned vampire older sister Iris (The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires Half-Moon Hollow, Book 1).

    This books only issue is it finishes too soon . . .

    Amanda Ronconi does her usual excellent narration, bringing all of Molly's wonderful quirky characters to life. I hope the pairing of this dynamic duo of author and narrator continues in future releases.

    A feelgood Christmas tale that will brighten your day and bring a smile to your face

    Enjoy

    "Very good Half-Moon Hollow Holiday Story :D"

    4 stars

    This was a very enjoyable story. It's not a full story but more of a holiday short that lets us Molly Harper fans see our favorite characters for Christmas and get some of Gigi's story.

    This story is told from the PoV of Gigi, Iris' (from The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires) younger sister who has been away at college. Iris turned vampire while Gigi was away (a planned turning) but has been very nervous of attacking her and so Gigi hasn't been home in months, finally getting to come home for the Christmas holidays.

    The story basically entails Gigi and Iris reconnecting and finding themselves again as sisters now that many things have changed. Meanwhile, Gigi is interviewing for a job with the Vampire Counsel (which none of her family is happy about) and she has to handle her declining relationship with her high school sweetheart, Ben. Not to mention she believes she's being followed by a vampire that can disappear in to thin air...either that or she's going nuts. It gives an interesting glimpse in to Gigi's head and also we get to see all our Half-Moon Hollow favorites for the holiday.

    The story does leave off with some unanswered questions about things coming up in Gigi's life that gives a good indication that she'll probably get her own book soon. This was a humorous holiday story, everything we'd expect from Molly Harper. Amanda Ronconi did a great job on the narration as usual. I'd recommend it but it's probably best for people that have some familiarity with Molly Harper's book set in Half-Moom Hollow. :D

    "Only problem it's not long enough."
    What made the experience of listening to I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas the most enjoyable?

    Amanda Ronconi is fantastic with voices and emotions. Molly Harper always makes me laugh out loud


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas?

    There were many but when Gigi gets home and Iris is afraid to confront her.....and has all her pals there to make sure nothing happens....It's a real Halfmoon Hallow moment.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    As usual She is fantastic in this series. I've heard her doing other series as well and she's a fantastic narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I wouldn't bother, I love these audio books and they're better than going to a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next Halfmoon Hollow book to come out. Molly Harper you're just fantastic.

    Story
    "Gigi & Christmas in Half Moon Hollow"

    This was more of a 3.75 star, not quite a 4-star because of the very slight cliff-hanger.

    this is Novella was both Gigi's story and a Christmas in the Half-Moon Hollows story. It's been 3 years since she went off to college. She is still dating Ben, although they've hit a rut, and she is coming home from the first time since Iris followed through on her promise to Cal. Both sisters are a little nervous, but it is obvious these sisters missed each other.

    I loved this story. I love how Cal has really taken to his role as "man in the house" with gusto. Iris and Cal are still going strong, the whole gang, Orphelia, Jane etc make appearances in this Christmas edition.

    Expect the same quirky narration by Amanda Roncini, expect the same kind of humorous story and expect the same kind of light-hearted, fluffy, yet entertaining story as the previous two stories.

    "A light, funny read, as always."

    This Audible freebie is a fun little Christmas tale centering on Gigi that includes all your favorite Half Moon Hollow characters. I normally don't enjoy holiday shorts, but this isn't your average season-themed special. This is Molly Harper, who always manages to include some form of hi-jinks, minor disaster, untimely nudity, and a random possum or two. In this edition, Gigi comes home from college to see her newly turned vampire sister for the first time, and Iris is determined to throw a traditional "human" Christmas for her. The entire crew is called in for support, so expect a good helping of Jane's snark, Jolene's appetite, and Dick's T-shirt humor. I will say that this is a short, and as such will only leave you wanting more of Gigi's story.

    As always, Amanda Ronconi nails the characters with a perfect performance. Five stars.

    What did you like best about I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas? What did you like least?

    I really enjoyed the care and feeding of stray vampires so it was a bit like meeting an old friend for a cuppa and catch-up.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It made me want to hear more about these guys. <3 Molly harper stories.


    Was I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas worth the listening time?

    Story
    "Pah - True fans only"

    Yes ok I knew that this was going to be an easy, cheesy read. I've got others of the series, but this one is just a total con frankly.

    The ENTIRE book deals with .... going off your boyfriend. There, I've said it. Not even worth a spoiler alert is it? There are some smiley moments of random undead issues with Christmas festivals and trying to be human when you're not. The rest of the book is large chunks of explaining the characters and how they fit in. If you already know them, this is pointless and it got annoying.

    Amanda Ronconi's voice is however a joy and I could listen to her forever. I suppose if I was doing festive baking that only required half of my brain on, this might have been a good buy, but I wasn't and it isn't.

    "Amazing and funny story"
    If you could sum up I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas in three words, what would they be?

    Christmas-spirit, Love & Family


    What did you like best about this story?

    The parts were everything is falling apart - it's just amazing that so much can happen to a single person. Besides that is still funny to hear the story from the "human" side - and it keeps the line - that I've seen in the other books in the series.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She is so good at this, - accents and changing voice to the different persons in the book.. its so nice to listen to her.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    YES! I've some serious attacks of laughing.. It was so funny at some places, and the strange stalker is interesting. I was totally hooked on this book..


    Any additional comments?

    I think it will be played again very soon :D

    "A nice little tale to get you in the holiday mood"
    Would you try another book written by Molly Harper or narrated by Amanda Ronconi?

    This was the first book I had come across written by Molly Harper. I enjoyed the fact that a) it was free, b) festive (it's December for me at this moment) and c) the characters were built in a way you come relate to even though there were Vampires and Werewolves. There was a good amount of detail about the build up to having a normal American family Christmas.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Amanda Ronconi?

    I wasn't keen on the narrater to start with as she had an Amercian accent (I realise it was the right choice for an Amercian story.) In the end I was able to very easily ignore the accent and enjoy the characterisations and the different voices which were easy to tell apart.


    Any additional comments?

    The only annoying part was the repeating of the silent night, undead relatives part at the start of every chapter!
