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!
