Happy Solstice and happy Yule! After reading this modern epic last month, I’m totally on the Krampus train this year. This book tells the story of Krampus and Santa’s relationship, the history of Yule, and one West Virginian man’s struggle to get out of own way and put his family back together. I recommend listening to the audio book narrated by Kirby Heyborne because the dude delivers straight up entertainment. There’s a ton of action and drama with gore and vivid depictions. It’s pretty much a holiday horror fan’s wet dream (you know, from all the blood and snow). This would make a killer TV series but until that dream treatment gets wrote up, enjoy the thoroughly exciting audio book or pick up the hard copy with illustrations from the author Brom [21/25].
