    Not a children's Christmas tale.

    Keep your eye on the tall ugly one.

    I really loved this story!  The only reason for four instead of five stars is that the writing isn't stellar, but the story is fantastic.  I highly recommend reading this one.

    Loved it! Brom created a wonderful tale that Lord Kampus would truly enjoy A keeper!

    Fantastic book!

    This book was amazing. Certainly a page turner! Brom paints a beautiful world full of fantasy, gore, action, and emotions. I wish there was more I could read! I highly recommend this to anyone.

    A little of everything - down-trodden mid-western criminals, Norse gods, forest spirits and Santa Claus myths all intertwined. I really enjoyed Brom's "The Child Thief" so decided to give this a chance, even though I don't usually like Christmas-related tales and was very happy I did, it was just up my alley. A bit similar to some Neil Gaiman work (horror-fantasy-adventure) and the artwork is a pleasure.

    I found this really intriguing. It is a bit slow though.

    THANK YOU BROM!!!

    Just discovered this genre this summer so I've no expertise. I want to thank Brom for not giving me what I think I want in a story. I was annoyed, frustrated, and gentled throughout the telling and drawn into a wonderous tale that challenged and intrigued me. I was humbled to find myself mourning a loss I never realized. Who knew??! I am surprised at how easy it is to fall in love with such a delightfully, terrible being while rethinking the foundations of modern traditions. Also, thank you wife of Brom for I'd most likely would have never met Krampus without you.

    Great story that actually raises many questions about mankind as well as just being a great read. I felt more for the characters than I thought I would, especially the Lovable Krampus.   Definitely recommend it!
