Author Spotlight -- Brom -- Vlogoween #3
Santa Claus, my dear old friend, you are a thief, a traitor, a slanderer, a murderer, a liar, but worst of all you are a mockery of everything for which I stood. You have sung your last ho, ho, ho, for I am coming for your head.
I am coming to take back what is mine, to take back Yuletide. When the reindeer leap skyward, taking the sleigh, devil men, and Santa into the clouds, screams follow. Moments later, a large sack plummets back to earth, a magical sack that thrusts the down-on-his-luck singer into the clutches of the terrifying Yule Lord, Krampus.
But the lines between good and evil become blurred as Jesse's new master reveals many dark secrets about the cherry-cheeked Santa Claus, including how half a millennium ago the jolly old saint imprisoned Krampus and usurped his magic. Now Santa's time is running short, for the Yule Lord is determined to have his retribution and reclaim Yuletide.
If Jesse can survive this ancient feud, he might have the chance to redeem himself in his family's eyes, to save his own broken dreams. Get A Copy. HardcoverFirst Editionpages. More Details Original Title.

Patrick I hope so. I would love a sequel.
If you were to rate this similar to how movies are rated i. G, PG, PG, etc. Hollow Star well for language and violence and content I would rate it as R. I loved the book but it is meant for an adult audience.

This time, I got a poster with my order of Krampus: Upon a little quick googling, it appears it originally came as a promotion through the Science Fiction Book Club. While the artwork is detailed, the whole Christmas demon thing really isn't my aesthetic so I won't be hanging it up anytime soon. Anyway, other than the artwork, I wasn't very impressed with this book. I guess I wanted something more epic, something more fitting with the lore of yule and Krampus.
What I got was Krampus is angry at Santa who is really view spoiler [ Baldr hide spoiler ] and some trashy story. Maybe that's my fault for wanting a Christmassy story that feels like a classic; however, I felt that Krampus himself took a backseat to some mortal's mission to get back his wife.
The artwork just feels like a mismatch for the overall story, so you'll be disappointed if you are judging this book by its cover. Brom may be a talented artist, but his storytelling doesn't live up to the expectations he's created at all. View all 6 comments. Love the illustrations though! View all 12 comments. Claus look a little something like this: We've all been taught wrong.
He was known for being all peace, love, and light, but was that the real story or was Baldr a great deceiver? In this story, after Baldr dies in ancient times, he is reborn as Santa Claus. He takes over Yule and changes the holiday. Well, someone is not very happy about THAT. Meet Krampus.
Our villain, I mean hero, or is it anti-hero? Who knows, who cares. He's awesome. No candy in shoes? No tributes?

And where's his bag? The battle to bring back Yule is on. You're toast, Santa! Here's Isabel and Jesse. They are part of Krampus's Belsnickels.
If Krampus bites you, you become a little bit demon. Your skin gets black spots and you grow claws, have heightened senses, live a really long time, the cold doesn't bother you, you don't need to eat as much, etc. But you have to obey his commands. So you're basically a slave, but hey, things could always be worse!
When we meet Jesse, he has lost his wife and daughter and is pretty much a loser. He can't keep a job, his truck barely works, and everyone hates him. He gets stuck doing jobs for The General, who runs the meth in town. And the police chief named Dillard wants him dead and is sleeping with his estranged wife. He meets Krampus and ends up turning his life around. It's got a little bit of everything - horror and gore, comedy, mythology, fantasy I love how the author wove ancient myths and paganism into the story.
Flying yule goats instead of flying reindeer Krampus is Loki's grandson Yule was celebrated before Christmas existed and was about celebrating the winter solstice and the rebirth of the sun and was also connected to Odin and The Wild Hunt.

It was about drinking, dancing, sex and partying! It's really fascinating. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because there was a little bit of issues with pacing at times. But overall, this was loads of fun and a perfect for me Christmas story. The author, Brom, drew the pictures I posted above. He is amazing!!! So talented.
Original review : Loved it! What a great Christmas, er, I mean, Yuletide book! It's got crazy hill-billy meth gangs, a Santa who looks like Odin, and Loki's grandson who looks like a demon with horns. Fun fun fun.
