I just cant get into this book This is a shame because I was really looking forward to reading it I did not finish Forget verything you think you know about the story about Santa Claus and get ready for a tale that will scare your socks off The story begins with a spoiled rotten Klaas Krengel who joins a choir of orphans who are cared for by Friar Otto after all touring the countryside singing way better than living in a castle and being ignored soon learns that the choir isn t what he "way better than living in a castle and being ignored He soon learns that the choir isn t what he it would be and he couldn t carry a tune in a bag if he had to and the other children resent him for it It seems that no sooner does he join this choir group than bad things begin to happen mainly in the form of the Inuisition I won t reveal all but suffice it to say the kids are threatened with The Pear of Anguish and their caregiver the friar is killed in front of them The children relieved of their caregiver are then sold into slavery and certain abuse at the hands of their new mastersWhile I was familiar with the Austrian folklore aspect of the story the author wove in lots of historical vents including the Black Death There are demons pedophiles a myriad of horrid individuals and of course the Krampusz If that isn t nough imagine swarms of fleas torturing two little girls amid a room full of els that have been dumped on the floor nough to make anyone suirm And that is just the beginningAs other reviewers have mentioned this is a tale about one of the darkest times in human history and unspeakable misery runs rampant The author has a gift for describing situations very clearly so that the reader almost xperiences the story first hand with all five senses many of which are cringe worthy guaranteed Self centered Klaas may be the one individual who can ventually usher in the ra of nlightenment though it seems improbable given his circumstances He ll have to survive the giant sack of the Krampusz and the erie world of Sundaloon firstI would recommend this book to people who njoy very dark stories and can stand having their favorite holiday
turned into something a little less than a benevolent old man least at the onset Definitely not a story for the sueamish or individuals who despise descriptive writing I received a review copy of this novel for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl Not only did the cover for Krengel and the Krampusz draw me in but the synopsis was deliciously intriguing I love it when Christmas and horror are mixed together and the results of the mixture in this novel inspire chills comparable to being stranded out in a blizzard The language Norris uses to tell this story of Krengel and the Krampusz was mesmerizing and though it took me time in the beginning to get into the rhythm I couldn t imagine the book being written any other way His rich and vivid descriptions stand out in my mind and I reread some parts of the story because I found myself thinking did that really just happen And yes yes it didThe book begins and Krengel is shown to be a young boy who s spoiled sheltered and an all around brat Not how we picture Santa to be right There s also the Krampusz who s demon like and somehow co xists with Krengel as though they share a body but have two separate minds Different versions of Krengel s birth have been told Some say Krengel had a twin whom his mother killed Others say Krengel strangled his twin in utero Still others say Krengel s twin was born deformed None of these versions are happy as you can see When Krengel throws a fit to be included in an all boy traveling. The pic origin of a beloved holiday icon unfolds as nine year old Klaas Krengel flees plague ravaged Germania on a swashbuckling adventure across Medieval Europe to the remote Le valeureux guerrier ends of thearth where he finds himself pitted against a gruesome host of adversaries all resurrected from old Austrian lore.
