Krampus: The Yule Lord by Gerald Brom
Krampus: The Yule Lord

Terry Chadwick, January 5, 2013

Definitely not your typical Christmas book. You will never view Santa Claus in the same way again. Krampus is the Yule Lord who was overthrown and imprisoned by Santa Claus, aka the Norse god Baldr. West Virginian Jesse is a down and out musician who is trying to put his life straight and keep his estranged wife and daughter safe from the corrupt cops and criminals of the area. Krampus escapes and goes after Santa Claus, wanting his magic sack back and to be worshiped as the Yule lord again. Jesse finds the magic sack, gets captured by Krampus, and the fun begins as both Santa and the bad guys go after the sack and Jesse. Lots of violence and dark humor. Krampus and Santa Claus are both horrible yet sympathetic. And, like all good Christmas/Yuletide tales, the story has a life-affirming ending.
