Born prematurely, Christoff wasn't as big or as strong as his older brother or the other younglings in the village. Unable to fit in, he does the best he can, helping his father and mother on their farm. His life changes when the mountain near their farm awakens. Believing he is the only one who can quiet it, he retreats to the mountain to watch over the village that shunned him.
A hermit for centuries, he dreams of the day he can move on to his next life - a life that he hopes will give him a chance to find his true mate. He knows his time has come when the mountain begins to tremble again. What he doesn't expect is a group of younglings who suddenly appear in the hopes of saving something called Christmas. When the mountain erupts, he never expects to awaken on a strange planet lightyears away, or to meet an unusual woman who sees beneath his deformity to the warrior hidden within.
Can the love of a special woman and her family heal Christoff's tortured soul? Find out what happens when the Goddess Aikaterina gives the Old Dragon his very own special Christmas.
This collection includes the bonus novella A Dragonlings' Magical Christmas, in which the Dragonlings Roam and Alice have suddenly disappeared. Now their parents are in a race to find them before they're lost forever.

I strive to give unflinchingly objective detailed reviews so you don't need to waste your time and money, unnecessarily, on mediocre titles.
I would have enjoyed the youngling's story more if the kids'dialog didn't sound like Jar Jar Binks. Having raised 4 boys, the dialog was unrealistic and distracting.
Still, I happily own most of S.E. Smith's audio books and a lot of her ebooks. I enjoy her writing, usually, and her attention to detail really helps you to feel like you're a part of her story.
David Brenin does an excellent job, as usual.
I still would recommend this book to fans of this author, but for new fans...this is not the best example of her capabilities as a writer. She usually has strong dialog from realistic characters.
Over 60 years old. Still working in the same company for 42 years. Love listening to books.
THE EASE WITH WHICH I CAN ACTUALLY VISUALIZE THE STORY IN MY MIND. YOU FEEL FOR HIM AND EDNA. LOVED IT!
THE LOVE, THE HOPE, AND THE GREAT STORY-LINE.
THERE WERE SEVERAL - I LOVED THE PART WHERE EDNA FELL INTO HIS ARMS; I LOVED THE PART WHERE HER FAMILY ACCEPTED HIM. I LOVED THE PART HOW HE HELPED EDNA'S GRANDDAUGHTER AND SHE HELPED HIM.
NOT SURE ABOUT A FILM - BUT WOULDN'T A SCI-FI SERIES BE NICE? OF COURSE SOME OF THE SEX SCENES WOULD HAVE TO BE TONED DOWN FOR THE SCREEN.
IF I HAD TO FIND ONE THING WRONG - IT WOULD BE THAT THE STORY ENDED TOO SOON. THAT'S THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT EVERY GOOD BOOK I FIND.
Loved Edna and Kristoff getting together. Wish the two stories were switched in order on the sudiS presentation. Love the Valdier dragons and mates
I thought this was a very sweet book that I truly enjoyed. The development of the secondary characters (the children) makes me want to grow with them. Thank you for the wonderful listen. Also I really liked David Brenin as the narrator. He has a very enjoyable voice and does a great job with all the little voices. I felt like I was on the adventure with them. Merry Christmas for sure. I look forward to hearing what happens to the rest of the beloved characters. So many great stories.
"Loved it. Will past it on to other people. Love"
Loved it will past it on to everyone. Can't wait for nxt one. Iv read an listen to all ur books.
Another truly wonderful, sexy and funny story about an older couple. The depth of the characters and the way these characters are brought to life from S E Smiths' other books is brilliant... I loved it
I loved this book at the start I cried and later I laughter and for me that is a great book. I've enjoyed the series so far can't wait for more.
