The 13 Frights of Christmas Review

    I actually hate to write this.Obviously, everyone has their own opinions, styles, preferences, etc. But I read most of this book just wondering what I was reading. I don't know whether most of the stories are just not well written or if it's the fact that they are very cliche, over the top, and just strange. Most of the stories, dare I say all, are simply gore/sex versus an actual story. The plots are non existent in place of shock, blood, and a lot of candy cane cocks (I honestly wish I was jok I actually hate to write this.Obviously, everyone has their own opinions, styles, preferences, etc. But I read most of this book just wondering what I was reading.

I love a good bloodfest and gore horror story. But I also would enjoy the story as well. I feel like the call for submission with this collection was the most unrealistic, strangest Christmas related idea you can imagine, also a demon, sexual Santa, or candy cane cock into it and send it to us. No editing or anything.I honestly think this may be my first one star review and I hate to write it, but this collection was simply bad in my own personal opinion.

    Loved this anthology! Something totally different to the romantic Christmas stories out there and it was so refreshing! There are some authors i had never read before so it was a great way to get to know them and actually one of my favourite stories was from such an author, Sean Kerr, i will be definitely checking out more books from him. Other stories i loved are Yolanda Olson's and Emery Leeann's, I've read those authors before and they never disappoint in drawing me in and keeping me hooked! Loved this anthology!

If you want an alternative Christmas story, then these ones are for you. Loved it and the fact that it is for Charity makes it even more a must read.

    For all of those readers who love their holiday season with a splatter of blood in it - you’re in for a treat! I loved this collection and read it in one sitting. Yolanda Olson and her hellish Elf, Virginia Johnson and her vampire Santa, Sean Kerr and his designer Christmas chair made of some very special leather - I can go on and on but I better leave it to you to discover all of these Frights on your own and get the best dark Christmas shivers while reading it. All of the authors nailed it! Fa For all of those readers who love their holiday season with a splatter of blood in it - you’re in for a treat! I loved this collection and read it in one sitting.

    This is an amazing anthology. I gobbled it right up. It has everything from devilish elves, evil kiddos, wicked Santas, a bloody workshop, window shopping, a nice hot dinner, holiday screams and even Christmas poems!My top 3 favorites are Press Play by Yolanda Olson, A Santa Exorcism by S.E. Rise and The Christmas Window by Sean Kerr.

    What a fun, twisted set of stories - this isn't the Hallmark channel! A great break from all the sweet, romantic Christmas stories, this has a little something for everyone who enjoys horror. Putting this anthology right along the Christmas movies I watch, so I have a little break every year!

    This anthology is horrorlicious. So much writing talent, wrapped up in one book, the stories and poems were original and a delight to read. I will be placing this e-book on my re-read list and fingers crossed that this one will become a paperback.

    These are wicked holiday reads.Definitely think of Santa and Christmas in a different light. Enjoyed each tale in this book and as always am left wanting more. Reading the tale of Frosty and elf on a shelf have to say I did chuckle and think of Frosty in a new way.

    I loved it when authors come together and give us a delightful anthology especially of the horror kind. Christmas and Santa will never be the same again.
