And it was a great surprise! A fantastic, holiday themed adventure story, focusing on a fight between light and dark (or snow and coals here :) ). Father Christmas and Krampus have fallen out with each other and now fight over Christmas. In the middle of it are Gabrielle and her younger brother Percival. When Percival goes missing, Gabrielle goes on a journey to the otherworld to find him.
I didn't expect it but I had so much fun reading this story! It's engaging and well paced, with dark-ish atmosphere, humour and amazing writing. The mood in the novel was Christmas-like and very gothis at the same time, and I think it would make a fantastic movie. The characters are well developed and I could hardly put the book down.
I would definitely recommend it if you like fantasy, as I think it could be enjoyed by both younger and older readers.
This was such a fun and quick novel! I love Krampus and loved Eldritch Black's other books so I had to pick this one up and I am so happy that I did! There are a lot of wonderful things going on in this novel such as the love between family, coming of age, light vs. dark (or snow vs. coal) and many lessons learned. Krampus was actually very likable and I loved how he and Santa worked together after remembering that to have light you must also have dark. The balance between the two was excellent and I loved the realness Black showed in both getting a little tired of their own duties. Sometimes even if you love your job, work still feels like work!
Overall Krampus and The Thief of Christmas was a sweet, fun and quick novel that I definitely recommend to fans of middle grade or for anyone looking for a fun Christmas story!
If you like darker fairy tales and more lighthearted Krampus stories, I highly recommend this one!
A very dedicated and brave young girl will risk anything for her brother, and finds herself caught up in the machinations of ancient adversaries. Her resolve takes her through strange and dangerous magical lands, and sees her through a harrowing adventure in the quest to free her little brother from captivity.
It's the kind of story I wish I'd had more of as a kid - strong characters, an adventure in which you can't guess what happens next, and set in a world that's both familiar and darkly original.
The characters have unique personalities and attributes . The children's role in the grand scheme is quite fascinating.
A very easy read
