Five Golden Rings is another cute Christmas anthology, like most anthologies, I liked some of the stories and some of them I didn’t really care for. Mistletoe Magic reminded me of Emma by Jane Austen with matches planned and love interrupting. War of the Magi was cute with Ginny trying to teach Phin the magic of Christmas, although the story felt like it could have been wrapped up a little more quickly than it was. I loved Her Christmas Knight, Nia had made a mistake in the past that had cost her her love and now she had a chance to get him back, set in medieval times with Caerwyn returning from the Crusades a different man then the boy who left Nia to go to war. At $.99 this collection is a steal and well worth the money for the enjoyment of Christmas stories shared in Five Golden Rings.
