A VAMPIRE CHRISTMAS CAROL
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Fiction
Charles Dickens may not have had vampires in mind when he wrote A Christmas Carol, but that’s fine, as author Gray makes Ebenezer Scrooge and vampire slaying a perfect match in this tale. If you’re familiar with the original book, the dialogue here is comfortable, yet it takes on a new perspective. Generally preferring classics to remain as such, this reader found A Vampire Christmas Carol to be respectful of the original story while revamping the narrative, thereby creating a lot of fun thrills and chills that will have readers considering Ebenezer in a whole new way.
Unbeknownst to him, Ebenezer Scrooge has been stalked by vampires since he was born. They’ve toyed with him, driving a wedge between him and his family, his fiancée and his friends until he finds himself alone and bitter. When paid a visit by his old friend who warns him he will be visited by three spirits, Scrooge discovers a different side of his lost love, his hard-working employee, Bob Cratchit, and family, and even his nephew, Fred. He has only one chance, one night, to save all he once held so dear. (KENSINGTON, Oct., 352 pp., $15.00)
