Adley is an unusual elf. He prefers skiing to parties, doesn’t like to sing, and cares so little for elf conventions that his brother despairs of him ever getting married. Which is fine, because Adley has no intention of marrying just anyone.
When he meets Keru at the annual Christmas Eve party, the two are drawn to each other. The party may be the most important event of the elvish social calendar, but neither Adley nor Keru minds leaving early to take a walk. They enjoy an idyllic and romantic first date under an aurora, rescuing a reindeer calf along the way, and a relationship seems promising.
But their second date takes a dire turn when a skiing trip brings them face to face with a polar bear. They’d like to keep seeing each other … if they can make it through their second date without being eaten!
Adley and Keru are two peas in a pod from what I can see with similar interests and disinterests. Unfortunately this story just didn’t really have any high or low points it was just sort of blah. Much of it was talking about the elf culture and very matter of fact with no feeling. For two who got along so well and even had two date one right after another they moved slowly and there wasn’t anything that connected me to the characters.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is a sweet picture of Adley and Keru.
