The Christmas Dragon

The box jumped. 

Boxes are not supposed to jump. It’s a law somewhere, I think. Maybe Guyana. Apparently not in New Hampshire, because the box kept jumping.[Read a free chapter]


All Katie Lin wants is to get away from her family: from the magic, from the mayhem, and from the never-ending war.

Unfortunately, someone has other ideas, and sends her a box. A box that jumps.

The tiny fire hazard inside may just force her back to Wales – and right into the path of a dragon war, the Crow King, and at least one reluctant elf prince.

Sometimes, running away just doesn’t work as planned.

5 stars: A fun, magical read!
By Amazon Customer on August 10, 2018

This story is funny and full of magical creatures and mishaps. Ruthanne Reid is skilled at weaving an enjoyable, easy to follow tale with interesting characters. I enjoy her humor and the magic she has weaved into her world. I will definitely be reading more of her books!

4 stars:  a really cute story, i only wish it was longer!
By Devann M. on December 26, 2017

I received a free copy of this book from StoryCartel in exchange for an honest review.

I actually read the next short story in the series – Strings – before reading this one so I’m doing it a little bit out of order but they aren’t directly related so I think you can skip around a bit, although there is a bit of a set up for Strings towards the end of this book so that was a fun little Easter Egg.

This was just a really fun story and my only complaint is that I wish it had been a bit longer because at times it seemed like the plot moved on a bit too quickly and conveniently but I love Katie and Grey and the author has a really great writing style that is very casual and funny. I can’t wait to get to the first full length book in this series!

5 stars: Utterly Charmed
By Roy on November 30, 2017

I picked up this book I had purchased and left to linger on my Kindle. It’s been hard to get through books lately. Perhaps it’s the allure of Twitter and it’s constant newness. So, I picked this up because Christmas and was utterly wrap up in this lovely little story with a beginning an end and far too little in between. Now I think I will read the rest because this hors d’oeuvre was a tasty snack that left me hungry for more.
