I loved this book, it was interesting through and through but I do wish it hadn't strayed so far from myths. Though this is an excellent "Based on" book and I would love to read more just like it. The ending did kind of wrap up with a pretty little bow, that much I didn't like but overall a great winter read.

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.

Pretty good book. Really enjoyed the story, the characters, and the setting. I can't bring myself to give it five stars though because I hated the religious stuff that was thrown in. Everything I read about the book before starting it led me to believe that it was a dark fantasy about a rivalry between Santa and Krampus but it's more like Santa and Christian mythology vs. Krampus and Norse mythology.

One thing I really loved was that there was no clear good guy between Santa and Krampus. You might think Santa is the good guy because... well he's Santa. But then you find out he used blood on the magic bag to use it for delivering toys... who and how many did he kill to twist that magic bag to his will? You also learn about worse things when Krampus and his Belsnickles explore Santa's workshop.
