Just because I wanted another reason to post about horror books and I am feeling more like a Scrooge than a Cratchit this time of year. So this is my rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas. 🙂 Button was made by Michelle at Limabean designs
On the Fifth day of Christmas, my bookish Santa gave to me….
Fourteen-year-old Maggie Ogden thinks she knows everything there is to Grandfather Clement Clarke Moore and his legendary poem, ’Twas the Night Before Christmas. But all this changes Christmas Eve 1854 when Chelsea Manor receives an unexpected visitor – Henry Livingston; who’s searching for evidence to prove that his grandfather, Major Henry, is the true author of the famous holiday poem.
The night takes a strange turn when Maggie and Henry come across another intruder in Chelsea Manor. After following the peculiar boy down a secret opening within the fireplace and through an underground tunnel full of mechanical sleighs, Maggie and Henry discover Poppel, a hidden village under New York City.
Faced with the deadly challenges presented by the legend of The Three Sisters, Maggie and Henry are forced to play by Poppel’s rules and those who run the cursed village. And they quickly learn that not only is leaving Poppel harder than arriving, but there are even more dangerous lies and mysterious truths to Clement Clarke Moore, Christmas, and a menacing creature called Krampus than anyone could have known.
Started to read this one but just haven’t had time to finish it. One of the things I want to do next year is to make more time for my own book and try and not get as many new releases to review. I want to read some of those books hanging on my kindle or bookshelves that have been there forever! Krampus just looks like a fun read for the Christmas holidays and it seems there are a few different versions out there. 🙂
