Christmas is a time of peace and good dreams, but for Nick it would soon become a nightmare. When he starts skipping classes to hang with the bullies at school, strange things begin to happen.

A horrifying apparition haunts his dreams and tears his Christmas stocking into shreds! Finally, the beast crashes through Nick’s bedroom window, throws him in a sack, and spirits him away to its lair.

I really liked how the author worked the story about Krampus into this story and kept true to the legends. The pacing was a tad slow at the beginning but picked up. This is a dark story and I think it would be okay for the older middle grade but might be too much for younger middle grade readers.

Overall it was a good read and will definitely get kids into reading horror.
