Book Review

‘Elfin Magic’ is the perfect title for this charming short story – and not just because of the abundant amounts of Christmas magic they produce to support Santa. The second reason for the importance and role of elfin magic in this world Jeff Erno has created doesn’t become obvious until the last third or so of the book, but it’s very sweet and made me smile from ear to ear.

Charlie is an elfling about to graduate after his four-year stint at the Elfling Training Center located at the North Pole. Upon receiving his diploma, all kinds of changes will occur: he will pass into adulthood and become a full elf, he will get his job assignment from Santa, and he is expected to find and settle down with his mate. A female elf Charlie does not want to find because, you see, he is not exactly a “standard” elf.

Elves are steeped in tradition, but Charlie is rattling the cage – has done all his life with varying degrees of success. He was never interested in the things the boy elves liked, such as sports and shop. He loved sewing and has designed several fabulous outfits for himself, wanted to learn about making dolls and how to do makeup, and once tried to join the cheerleaders. He was always told that was not how things were done, and he dreads the future.

Charlie is attracted to Walter, an ice hockey star at the Training Center, but has no idea whether his feelings are returned and even if they are - how is that supposed to work when everyone expects each of them to pick a girl elf to marry and start a family with? If it weren’t for elfin magic – and you have to read the story to find out exactly how it works – Charlie and Walter might have ended up either extremely unhappy or disowned. Luckily, this is the North Pole and then there is Santa…

If you like sweet romances with lots of Christmas cheer, if you want to find out more about two male elves who feel the kind of attraction supposedly reserved for female/male pairings, and if you’re looking for a fabulous read full of Christmas spirit, a touch of magic, and a very happy ending, then you will probably love this short story as much as I do. I am still smiling.
