Review:
Ah, I thoroughly enjoyed this little story. It's very short and very charming. The writing is beautiful and the story is exciting and fast-paced.

The scenery was vibrant, and I especially enjoyed the sort of fairytale feel the story has. There were several characters, but none hard to remember or pinpoint. I also enjoyed the magic bits in here.

I would definitely recommend this for Christmas, it's perfect to get you into the festive mood!
