During each holiday I like to have something relevant to read. Don't you? Spooky books around Halloween, Christmas themed novels for the holidays... well, how about mixing things up and going for something spooky for Christmas? I did a little search and found ten of the highest rated Christmas horror e-books on Amazon for you. With Christmas just a few days away, you probably won't be able to order a paperback or two and receive them in time for the holidays- so e-books are the way to go! I hope you enjoy my list and find something that will scare the baubles off your tree and the figgy out of your pudding.
Have fun... if you dare...
As you sit warm and cozy in your chair by the fire, comforted by the pretty lights and decorations of your holy nights, a chill runs up your spine. Part of you knows that the things that creep in the night and stalk your souls take no holiday. Indeed, as the members of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Horror Writer's Association are here to remind you with twenty dark tales and four eerie poems, at this time of the year, many terrors lie just beneath the tinsel. They bring a special kind of fear that can only be found in The Winter Horror Days.
One Christmas Eve in a small hollow in Boone County, West Virginia, struggling songwriter Jesse Walker witnesses a strange spectacle: seven devilish figures chasing a man in a red suit toward a sleigh and eight reindeer. When the reindeer leap skyward taking the sleigh, devil men, and Santa into the clouds, screams follow. Moments later, a large sack plummets earthward, a magical sack
that will thrust the down-on-his luck singer into the clutches of the terrifying Yule Lord, Krampus. But the lines between good and evil become blurred as Jesse's new master reveals many dark secrets about the cherry-cheeked Santa Claus, and how half a millennium ago, the jolly old saint
imprisoned Krampus and usurped his magic. Now Santa's time is running short, for the Yule Lord is determined to have his retribution and reclaim Yuletide. If Jesse can survive this ancient feud, he might have the chance to redeem himself to his family, to save his own broken dreams...and
help bring the magic of Yule to the impoverished folk of Boone County.
