What a lovely take on the legend of Krampus! I'm not going to say too much about Krampus Hates Christmas but I will say that it is a perfect blend of holiday, paranormal, romance, and just plain fun. I just could not put this down until I swiped the final page and I am already looking forward to re-reading this one next Christmas and for many more holiday seasons to come. As it's another new author for me, I also look forward to checking out future tales from Andi Van.

I had no idea that Nicholas Kris Kringle (Santa Claus) had a brother named Karl Kringle. I also didn't know that Karl (Krampus) is the one who handles the naughty list. Apparently he is not talked about much in the United States but is well known in parts of Europe. This is why I love the annual Dreamspinner Press Advent Calendar - I always get wonderful, fantastical stories that make me happy, and sometimes I learn new things. It's always an honor to participate. “They have a point,” Noel said and shrugged when Karl growled at him. “It’s a major holiday. You can’t go into it hating it, even if you’re telling them to basically put you in place as the bad cop. You have to love the holiday, because you’re basically defending it.” Karl snorted. “That’s me, the Advent Avenger. Do I get a costume too?” Yeah, I pretty much fell for Karl. He's not angry with the council for himself, he's furious that his brother continues to have more and more responsibility thrown on him each year, and they can't see that Karl wants to take some of the burden off Nicholas. Karl's brother-in-law, Noel, sends him to his apartment in Santa Barbara to spend time with humanity and learn to love Christmas again. Poor Karl. Waking up without his beautiful horns, hooves, and silky fur - very traumatic. At least until he finds out it is only an illusion. I adored watching Lewis and Karl fall in love. What better person to remind Karl of all the things he used to love about Christmas than a man who owns a holiday store, and a family that has a pumpkin and tree farm. Taking Karl home to his family probably helped everything along as Karl fell for them, too. What's going to happen on Krampusnacht when Karl reverts to his real self and Lewis will see him for real? I loved everything about this story! I learned some legend and lore, but better than all of that was the lesson the author wove into the story. Actually, the very best part was how Nick and Karl, with a little help from Mother Nature, got an enlisted man home to his family on Christmas morning. Thank you, Andi, this was perfect!
