I'm having difficulty with an artist who is blind and never has actually seen the colors of the paints she's using. I can sort of believe the gem singer bit helps, but she was an artist before that.
The H... :shrug.
This one is a retelling of the Gift of the Magi - he gives up something for her, and she gives up something for him. The catch of course being that the mutual gifts are dependent on the recipient having something that they gave up.
The print volume also includes Halloween in Atlantis, which is set *before* Christmas in Atlantis but by virtue of...some odd choice there I suppose, is the last...third I guess...of the book. I actually liked it better.
The h is a party planner, there's mischief afoot, and the H who assists.
