Book Review: A Christmas Horror Story by Sebastian Gregory

A Christmas Horror Story

Title- A Christmas Horror Story

Author- Sebastian Gregory

Publisher- Carina



On the night before Christmas, lock the doors to the house…

Forget the jolly old man in his red, big-buttoned suit. Because another creature is up on the roof, preparing for his annual visit to little children everywhere.

With a belt of knives round his waist, a writhing bag on his back and a Santa-sized appetite, he’s a little…different to the St Nick you might be expecting.

And you can leave out all the carrots and mince pies you like…but it’s you he’s after.

A horrid Christmas to all, and a terrible night.

Every white Christmas has a dark side. Don’t miss A Christmas Horror Story, the gruesomely festive new story from Sebastian Gregory.


A Christmas Horror Story was a cute little story about a family and A Child Eater. This was such a cute and short read. I like that it wasn’t a normal Christmas story, but one with a bit of a dark side. I didn’t feel as though it was too freighting for children to read, but there was enough maturity for adults to enjoy as well.

I loved that Sebastian Gregory set the story in present time, but had many events in the past showing how the Child Eater has attacked other children, in sneaky ways. I was able to see how long the Child Eater has been around, and how he has attacked so many. We also were give a great description of the Child Eater, and especially loved the little poem in chapter five.

It was interesting that in the story, Santa comes to reward good children, where the Child Eater comes to get naughty children. Although, the children in the story were good children, every child has a moment where they are naughty.

Christmas with a Bite (Entangled Covet)


Sometimes the holidays totally bite…

This Christmas, Mara Livingston is determined to start over. But as she’s driving to her “new” home, a freak winter storm forces her off the road. Now she’s stranded in the middle of nowhere. Then he shows up. And there’s something strangely familiar about him…

Connor Reece never expected to see Mara again. Nor is he prepared for the onslaught of emotions―including an unimaginable rush of desire―she stirs within him. Now he has a chance to claim the woman he’s always wanted. Except, there are a couple of small details that Mara doesn’t know. The first is that Connor is a vampire. And the second is that if his family finds out about Mara, she will most certainly be killed…


This story was a great paranormal holiday romance, around this time it is always great to read a quick novel where you can cozy up under the blankets with hot coco. This was a great book to do this with. It has a little bit of everything; romance, a hot leading man that has something to hide, a woman that other woman can relate to and of course some hot sexy scenes.

Both Mara and Conner were drawn to each other, and it seems that this was not the first time they have been brought together, it must be fate! I love that Mara had such an open mind when it came to Conner. As soon as she stepped into his cabin she opened her mind to everything he offered even though her past is one that might not allow her to do so. I completely felt their chemistry and how much they couldn’t stay away from each other.
