by Stacia Kane

THE HOLIDAYS ARE HELL

Churchwitch Chess Putnam has seen, and banished, her share of ghosts, but not of the Christmas Past variety--the holiday has been illegal since the Church of Real Truth defeated the undead and took control of the world in 1997. Yet when she and her boyfriend, Terrible, make a trip to an abandoned auto junkyard, they find more than the rusted auto parts and spare tires they'd bargained for. They also run across a creepy Miss Havisham-type hell-bent on reuniting with her long-dead husband just in time for Christmas--even if it means taking Chess and Terrible down with her into the City of Eternity…

If Chess and Terrible don't manage to keep these ghosts in the past, they won't have a future…

    Christmas is not something that exist anymore. It was gotten rid

    Christmas is not something that exist anymore. It was gotten rid of years ago by the Church of Real Truth and declared illegal. Chess and Terrible find someone who still celebrates it despite it being illegal. Going into a junk yard one night they stumble across a woman who love the holiday and how much it meant to her and her deceased husband. She misses her husband and doesn't care how many laws she breaks she will get him back. Chess and Terrible find themselves in bad place with a crazy lady intent on using them for her own gain.




    I have not read any of this series but I did like this short story. It made me want to read the whole series and find out more about Chess and Terrible. The crazy lady's house they find there selves in sounds like something straight out of a horror story. It looks awful everywhere but the Christmas stuff. There is magic in this book along with how far a person will go to be with their love. Chess and Terrible do what they have to do to save there selves. I am sure fans of the series will be delighted with sort story as it just wet my appetite to read this series. I need to know more about these characters now.
