    Welcome to Magnolia Lane. It’s not exactly a little slice of heaven, but in the backwater town of Creekside, Kansas, it’s the best a jobless supermarket clerk like Andrew Morrison can do. After sacrificing a normal childhood, a decent education, and true love to look after his alcoholic mother, he’s finally breaking free and living his own life — but in the squalid house he’s sharing with a former childhood friend, the living isn’t exactly easy. Plus, there’s something about the chipper, all-American couple next door that’s just downright creepy. However, that doesn’t keep Drew from accepting a job as their handyman — or surrendering to the wiles of perfect housewife Harlow Ward, a woman who always gets what she wants. Drew, like a string of hapless young men before him, doesn’t realize he’s dancing with a devil — one dressed to the nines in high heels and pearls.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A 4 or 5 star rating would require a complete overhaul of story, characters, and dialogue.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ania Ahlborn again?

    I enjoyed listening to the author's previous novel, "Seed", I will give her next novel a shot but if it misses the mark I'm done.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's voice for the lead female character was annoying, sounded perpetually pissed and too brisk.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nothing I can particularly recall at this point.

    One Christmas Eve in a small hollow in Boone County, West Virginia, struggling songwriter Jesse Walker witnesses a strange spectacle: seven devilish figures chasing a man in a red suit toward a sleigh and eight reindeer. When the reindeer leap skyward, taking the sleigh, devil men, and Santa into the clouds, screams follow. Moments later, a large sack plummets back to earth, a magical sack that thrusts the down-on-his-luck singer into the clutches of the terrifying Yule Lord, Krampus.

    Story

    Krampus was a pretty good listen right before Christmas. The narrator was great, probably my favorite aspect of the tale. The storyline was decent, only complaint was at times the flow seemed a bit stilted and littered with a character repeatedly repeating f&!* numerous times in a row. Overall definitely worth the credit.
