The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.
Today’s quote is from Krampus, the Yule Lord. Thought I’d do some holiday reading!
Santa remembered why he hated teenagers – they worked so hard not to believe in anything. Did their very best to spoil the magic for everyone else. “Go home.”
The teenager blinked. “Hey, this here’s a free country. You can’t go telling us what to do.”
“Is that a new bike?”
“Sure is,” the kid said with obvious pride. “Got it for Christmas. Fucking rad.”
“Would you please get off of it?”
“What . . . huh? What for?”
“So you will not be upon it when I toss it down the hillside.” Santa nodded to the steep incline on one side of the trail that bottomed into a ravine of broken rocks.
As you can see, this is not your normal jolly Santa Claus! This book is awesome and creepy, and the full review will be up soon!
My brother was just telling me about Krampus the other day. I’m glad you are enjoying the story. This week I am spotlighting Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse. Happy reading!
Loved Trail of Lightning! That book is fantastic!
Man, that cover art is awesome! This book sounds dark and weirdly funny in a way. It seems like something that probably has a lot of dark humor, which I really like. 🙂
It does have a lot of dark humor, and more illustrations throughout. It’s pretty amazing as a holiday book if you’re not into the brighter side of Christmas, lol.
