A Barb the Zany Old Lady Review: The King’s Courage (North Pole City Tales #6) by Charlie Cochet


Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

A sweet, exciting, and endearing conclusion to a beautiful holiday series, Charlie Cochet brings it in with a homerun with this tale of Eirik, the King of Frost, and Dasher, a, uh, dashing member of Rudy’s Rein Deer squad. 

Dasher’s friend Rudy Rein Deer is finally marrying Jack Frost.  The wedding of the year will take place at Jack’s palace in Svalbard, Norway, but Dasher isn’t looking forward to the wedding as much as he’s looking forward to the opportunity to get closer to Eirik, Jack’s father.  Dasher sees beyond the royal persona to the man beneath and he’s hoping to convince the king of his feelings and longing to someday having those feelings returned.

When the king lost his queen long ago, he locked away his frozen heart, but when he and Dasher have a chance to really talk and Dasher relates his own story of a lost love, that heart begins to thaw.

Of course, evil forces try to draw them apart and put Dasher in mortal danger. Can Eirik, Kringle, Jack, and Rudy find a way to save the day? 

This isn’t intended as a standalone as most of the characters from the previous series are present for this wedding and play a role in the story.  If you haven’t ever read these books, by all means, go get them!  It’s a wonderful series and this story provides the perfect ending to a set of stories that will warm your heart on a cold winter’s day. 


Cover by Paul Richmond depicts a young man dressed formally and holding a glass heart in his hands. Behind him stands a larger man in royal robes, representing the King of Frost.  Bright and colorful, the cover conveys a part of the story beautifully.
