Review: A Christmas Horror Story
A Christmas Horror Story by Sebastian Gregory
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of A Christmas Horror Story from the publisher in return for an honest review.
A Christmas Horror Story was a quick and fun read, it's not your usual feel good happy Christmas story though!
Katy, Emily and Jake are home alone on Christmas Eve waiting for their Mum coming home from work and looking forwards to having a nice Christmas together. A snow storm changes all that, their Mum hasn't made it home and something is outside trying to get in. The Child Eater is looking for more victims and his sights are set on the three of them.
I really enjoyed this one, it was fun to read a Christmas tale with a darker side to it. The characters were likeable and I was really rooting for them to get the best of the The Child Eater. The pacing was just right and held my attention, the scenes and environment were easily pictured and written very well. The author has included back story from previous years within this one to show that the Child Eater has been terrorising children for many many years and it adds more tension to the story knowing the history.
This year when you hear those bells and footsteps on your roof, you better be sure it's Santa and not the Child Eater come to pay you a visit!
