    Interesting to see a darker theme and something a bit outside of the candycane sweetness.

    Thanks for the review. I think short stories are difficult to do really well. I often find I want more. It is is odd that this one wasn’t holiday related.

    I must recognise I am a sucker for fantasy, and this cover really catches my eye, so this is another addition to my TBR pile. Thank you for the review, Dan

    I’ve been hesitant about this one because it seems like an odd title amd blurb for Christmas, but it sounds like the perfect fantasy read.

    Poison gives me the creeps, but it sounds like I need to give points for originality!

    I’ve passed over this story for the very reasons you mentioned in your review. I’ll likely pull it out when I need something a little off the usual Christmas path. Thanks for the review.

    The premise sounds intriguing. Looking forward to giving this a read of my own.

    This story immediately caught my attention out of all the advent stories. After reading the blurb, though, I definitely wonder if it will feel like too much packed into too few pages. I usually love fantasy stories that have a bit of world-building. Thanks for the review.

    Thanks for the review. I hadn’t read the blurb in advance, but was looking forward to the short from this author. The past few short stories I have read from TJ Nichols were never a disappointment and I still could recall them after a long time. So yeah, again the story was a bit different, but still within the given topic and I’d say it’s one of my three favourites so far.
