I am shocked, shocked I say! This narrator has some serious skills. She did accents perfectly. Her voice was so emotive, it was like I was there. I could hear the sarcasm, the playfulness and the serious tones. It was very expressive. Her book was full of so many different accents and it made the characters in my head come to life in a way that was impossible while reading to myself.
Its no secret I loves me some Stormy Smith. Her writing is professional, detailed and well rounded. And I wish this novella was longer just so I could hear the narrators voice nail all the different characters. I will say I found Aidan’s voice a bit hard to listen too at first, like she was trying to hit a lower register than was possible for her. It made me cringe a bit in the beginning. But once I got used to it, the whole cast really came together nicely.
I like this audio so much, I’m looking for other books she has narrated just so I can hear her voice again. Well done Kristin James! And of course, kudos to Stormy for writing such a wonderful book to be narrated.

I have considered this whole series a major plus for listening to it. The narration has brought the book more alive and into a fourth dimension you don't get by reading. Voices are given to each character.
Listening to these two together, in love, and enjoying every minute has made me smile the whole time. I enjoyed their excitement. Through all the smiling I even had a moment where I started to tear up. It's such a heart filled moment. So much love in these characters and after all they've been through, they get to enjoy it.
I enjoyed the tree searching and when they exchanged gifts. I don't want to say to much and give it away. ;)
Absolutely. It's short, only an hour. So listen to it for the heartfelt love these two have for each other and their loved ones. This story feels like the concluding ending that we should have. It ties in the roles Amelia and Aidan and others come to rest at.
Oh young love. *sigh* They are still getting to spend their exploratory time together. Loving in the flirting and teasing ways. They are so in love. They are soul mates.
Christmas is a time to remember those you love, and Aidan is a strong influence for Amelia to experience Christmas to the fullest extent. Neither have had a true, happy Christmas with loved ones and traditional celebrating. They think on those they love, every ornament having a meaning when placed on the tree. Everyone is enjoying their holiday, sharing love with so many people. They are all spreading the love and cheer. This is the love that all should feel at the holidays.
We do get a quick glimpse at Amelia being an Elder, Amelia's power is a beacon for all mages. Aidan worries that all who come seeking her will have good intentions.
