    Camp Swifta Training Grounds

    Built for things like Tag, Paintball, Hide and Go Seek, Lazer Tag, and More. Large boulders and walls were around so people could hide.

    Review posted on Books on Silver Wings blog.

    This is a crazy, typical shifter story that starts out funny with Martin meeting a drunk Haven as a talking elk, but ends up with no romance
    and takes instant love to the extreme.

    My first thought after reading the story is: where's the romance?  It seems like it is skipped. The characters jumps into the "I love you"
    routine immediately after they meet (as humans). Haven takes Martin to meet his herd's leaders also immediately after they profess
    their love. In short, there's too much commitment from Martin to the shifter community when I don't even see his love for Haven.

    There is a surprise with the world building about different types of shifters and vampires. There are also interesting methods to try to
    get Martin to live the same life span as Haven so they can be together forever. However, the intrigue and mysterious air is lost due to
    the shortness of the book length. All the events in the story seem rushed.

    Overall, as a shifter story, there's nothing special in this short story. As a romance book, this fails. However, it is a very happy-go-lucky
    story that's infused with the holiday spirit. It's guaranteed angst-free and so sugary, it may give you cavities.
