Loved this book. A great modern fairy tail of sorts, for adults tho :-) the author really gets u thinking about the ways we celebrate and why. Its got love, action, humour, heartbreak and well formed cast of charecters. Highly recommend for holiday reading!

This was terrific! Best book to combat all the hype and "Seasonal" music this time of year. Santa isn't quite a Hallmark card figure, and Krampus- well, I think we should consider celebrating Yuletide. Even if only to avoid being beaten with switches... I'm going to set out my shoes now, with candy in them.

Excellent Christmas story for adults! Not so much for children because of the blood, guts, and gore. Sometimes the language is a bit graphic for children. I love the new visual conception of Santa and who can not respect Krampus!

This is a heck of a read! Great fun and interesting premise. Does have a lot of blood and gore as a very buff Santa and the Lord of Yule fight for power to rule the darkest night of the year! NOT for young children to hear!

This book is alot of fun - especially for this Yule season. It would probably be offensive to anyone not open to other religious ideas (not that it's really packed with it, but this is Krampus after all). I loved the Krampus character and his "evil"-ish minions. :)
