Publisher's Summary

Born prematurely, Christoff wasn't as big or as strong as his older brother or the other younglings in the village. Unable to fit in, he does the best he can, helping his father and mother on their farm. His life changes when the mountain near their farm awakens. Believing he is the only one who can quiet it, he retreats to the mountain to watch over the village that shunned him.

A hermit for centuries, he dreams of the day he can move on to his next life - a life that he hopes will give him a chance to find his true mate. He knows his time has come when the mountain begins to tremble again. What he doesn't expect is a group of younglings who suddenly appear in the hopes of saving something called Christmas. When the mountain erupts, he never expects to awaken on a strange planet lightyears away, or to meet an unusual woman who sees beneath his deformity to the warrior hidden within.

Can the love of a special woman and her family heal Christoff's tortured soul? Find out what happens when the Goddess Aikaterina gives the Old Dragon his very own special Christmas.

This collection includes the bonus novella A Dragonlings' Magical Christmas, in which the Dragonlings Roam and Alice have suddenly disappeared. Now their parents are in a race to find them before they're lost forever.

Enchanting

I love the story of the old dragon finding his mate at long last. Kristof the way he was treated when when he was a youngling made me cry and mad as hell, but i am so happy that the Goddess Aikaterina interfered, i won't say anymore so not to spoil for others. David Brenin you are an amazing narrator and i say it again, you have the sexiest voice ever (sighs) ;) thanks Susan and David for another amazing story. Oh and its great listening to the dragonlings, Roam and Alice again in their adventures and their hapless daddies and of course their beautiful Mommies xox

Great

Christoff & Edna. This was a great story. Christoff lived a lonely life for centuries until the goddess sent him to his true mate Edna, He was a good man/dragon because he'd been helping the village that treated him like crap all his life because he was different & when he & Edna went back he continued to help. The Village From Hell as I call it had changed its tune. His evil brother (Lamar) got a taste of what he'd dished out sadly through his injured son (an example of the sins of the father being visited on the son) & had to ask Christoff's help. Good soul & better man than most Christoff agreed to help. I've listened to other Lords of Valdier books this was my favorite.

OLD DRAGON FOR CHRISTMAS!!

What made the experience of listening to The Old Dragon of the Mountain’s Christmas the most enjoyable?

THE EASE WITH WHICH I CAN ACTUALLY VISUALIZE THE STORY IN MY MIND. YOU FEEL FOR HIM AND EDNA. LOVED IT!

What did you like best about this story?

THE LOVE, THE HOPE, AND THE GREAT STORY-LINE.

Which scene was your favorite?

THERE WERE SEVERAL - I LOVED THE PART WHERE EDNA FELL INTO HIS ARMS; I LOVED THE PART WHERE HER FAMILY ACCEPTED HIM. I LOVED THE PART HOW HE HELPED EDNA'S GRANDDAUGHTER AND SHE HELPED HIM.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

NOT SURE ABOUT A FILM - BUT WOULDN'T A SCI-FI SERIES BE NICE? OF COURSE SOME OF THE SEX SCENES WOULD HAVE TO BE TONED DOWN FOR THE SCREEN.

Any additional comments?

IF I HAD TO FIND ONE THING WRONG - IT WOULD BE THAT THE STORY ENDED TOO SOON. THAT'S THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT EVERY GOOD BOOK I FIND.

In the wrong order

Cute stories... They are put together in the wrong order though. The first part is second, which was super confusing

Loved it. So sweet!

I wanted it to continue. The only thing I would change is have the second story play first. Then the story of the Old Dragon. Loved the story of the younglings.

Delightful!

I really enjoyed the story of the old dragon, it is tear-inducing but sweet and warming, too. It is a delight to hear the dragonlings interact among themselves and with their parents. And generally, the depiction of animals and their natural curiosity and unadulterated sweetness and purity was a balm of its own. The Christmas spirit is really genuine in this book!

Why not combine them?

The reason I gave less stars for overall is because the 2 stories are the same overall. The 1st is a shorter version with a different ending. Why not combine the 2? Still a great story. Love the dragonlings!!
