Krampus
Krampus: The Yule Lord | Brom
Terrific. A wild ride.I loved it. It hooked me and I couldnt put it down. Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy Acclaimed author and artist Brom raised eyebrows and pulse rates with The Child Thief, his grim, brilliantly audacious, gorgeously illustrated reimagining of the Peter Pan legend. So what does this innovative fantasist do for an encore? He tinkers darkly with the beloved mythology of Santa Claus. Set in Appalachia, Krampus the Yule Lord is a twisted fairytale about a failed West Virginia songwriter who gets ensnared on Christmas Eve in an eternal war between a not-so-saintly Saint Nick and his dark enemy Krampus, aka Black Peter, an ancient trickster demon. Krampus the Yule Lord is Gregory Maguire (Wicked) meets Susanna Clarke (Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell) in the realm of Guillermo Del Toros Pans Labyrinth, as Clive Barker (Mr. B. Gone) works his dark sorcery from the shadows. Once again featuring Broms chillingly beautiful artwork throughout, Krampus the Yule Lord is a feast of wonder straight from the kitchen of Sweeney Todd.

Finished this today. This was a fun, bloody, non traditional holiday read. It was fun learning more about the Yule Lord, Krampus, his relationship to Santa and how the Christmas holiday usurped him. I loved how both Krampus and Santa were each presented as imperfect figures. #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals #TBRRead #HolidayRead

This was a wild, Norse mythology-inspired, hillbilly ride! Krampus vs Santa in the backwoods of Boone County, West Virginia. 🥊 Definitely not your typical holiday read.

Plus Yule goats! 🐐 🐐

We‘re installing a new HVAC system (with 2 new AC units) the first week of January. Tonight we find that our water heater appears to be going too. Calling the plumber tomorrow.

Krampus looks like how I feel at the moment. 🤬😰 #adultingsucks

🎧 Well. What can I say about this story? Not for the faint of heart. A lot of colorful language & talk about Asgard so my mind would wonder to The Avengers which this book has absolutely nothing to do with ... but Thor, Ragnarok, Loki all who I know from the MU are mentioned quite a bit. Krampus VS Santa & the latter seems to be the bad guy. Adult themes & language. I dragged my feet but it ended up being better than I imagined! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Santa Claus, 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.

I, Krampus, Lord of Yule, son of Hel, bloodline of the great Loki, swear to cut your lying tongue from your mouth, your thieving hands from your wrists, and your jolly head from your neck.”

This was okay. I felt like it started off really good, got lost in the middle and then just made it‘s way to the ending. I loved the art though. I thought that was really well done. I just really enjoyed his other book, The Child Thief, so much more. So I know he is capable of writing an amazing story. He just didnt execute this time.

Had a moment today where I realized my tbr this month was entirely too ambitious. Currently battling retail hell. Hoping to get some reading in later today and tomorrow. Currently reading this by C. J. Brightley and listening to Krampus.

Krampus: The Yule Lord by Brom was an awesome tale of revenge and true wickedness, but also personal belief, friendship, loyalty, and family.

I was expecting this book to be wicked dark and focused only on terror. However, the horror & gore elements were rather light.

While this book may not have been at all what I was expecting, I still absolutely loved it!

“Mankind has lost its connection to the land...They gather their food not from the forest and fields, but from plastic bins and ice boxes. Their lives are no longer tied to the cycles of the seasons and the harvest, no longer do they need the Yule Lord to chase away the winter darkness and usher in the light of spring.”

This book was so much different than I expected, and so great. Not that I expected it not to be great, but I was quite surprised and taken by the Krampus/Santa connection to Norse mythology. It really makes me want to read more, because as a person of 50% Scandinavian heritage, it's pretty sad that the most I know about Norse mythology comes from Marvel, and now this book. Luckily I've already picked up a couple books!

Anyways, I loved this!

I loved everything about this book, the writing, characters, story flow, and the factual backstory about Yuletide mythology.

Although this is a book about who would win if Santa and Krampus got into a fight, it speaks on a deeper level about hitting rock bottom and receiving redemption. I also loved the comparison in conflict between human characters and mythological legends.

I love how even Krampus encourages Jesse to sing and perform.

Getting into the Christmas spirit with this AMAZING novel!! This is the second time reading it and I still couldn‘t put it down. Krampus tells the dark tale of what happens when you mess with the Yule Lord! Honestly this is the best dark Christmas novel around, if you enjoy horror and dark tales do your self and favor and pick up a copy next time your in the store!!

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned

Just made it to the hand drilling scene & I hope that the General & Dillard get their comeuppance. With that said, Santa seems just as despicable as those two. Not sure yet, but Krampus might be an antihero.

Also, the scene where Santa was bombarded by Krampus‘s helpers was epic. This is building up to a kick ass battle where the humans will be pulled into the mix.

blurb
BookwormOfTheDamned

Am loving the lead character, Jesse. His backstory about being a starving artist rings true on so many levels as he‘s simply trying to be a good father to his daughter. I can‘t help but think he will eventually win back his wife, Linda.

Today's #readjanuary prompt is "dreaming of a warmer (or colder) climate." It's been unseasonably warm this winter (at least here in Florida) - so, I opted for a colder climate. This book takes place in West Virginia at Christmas time, so it definitely qualifies as a colder climate. Also, I totally recommend this book for Christopher Moore and Tom Robbins fans.
