Standalone Sunday: Krampus: The Yule Lord by Brom

Standalone Sunday is a feature created by Megan at BookslayerReads (with a hat tip to Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek for turning me onto Standalone Sunday).  It features books that are standalones not part of any series.  With Thanksgiving in the books and the nascent stages of Christmas decorating in progress at my house (I have one round of Christmas lights up in the front yard and I bought a (live) Christmas tree and hanged Christmas lights on it), it’s time for a little Christmas reading.  And what better reading than Krampus, artist-writer Brom’s vision of a Pagan, sword wielding Santa squaring off against a seven-foot, horned Krampus in meth-ravaged West Virginia?

My full review of Krampus can be found here.  Make sure to pick up in paperback so you can fully appreciate Brom’s striking artwork.

    Hey there! Thanks for participating. This book looks creepy as all hell. But I like it! Another standalone horror recommendation to add to my list! So the ebook wouldn’t have the artwork in it? That stinks. I guess I will have to get the paperback copy because I definitely wouldn’t wanna miss out on those scary pics. Thanks for the rec!

      I assume that the ebook does, but in my experience book artwork looks like crap in black-and-white on my kindle. I did pick up a Fire tablet on Black Friday though, and ebook covers at least look great in color on that. B there’s no replacement for being able to flip right to a glossy paper illustration in my view.

        Good point! Luckily I have an iPad that I use my Kindle app on, so I get everything in color. Beautiful color, too! But I’ll still probably pick up the physical copy of this one!
