On my last trip to the bookstore I was shocked to see how many Christmas themed vampire books there were – tis’ the season after all. After writing about those books for Vampires.com I decided to see if there were any werewolf Christmas books too, because come on, if there are dozens of vampire Christmas books then there’s got to be a bunch of werewolf ones as well, right? Wrong. I could only find one. One! You guys may not have as many options as the vampire fans, but can still have a merry werewolf-y Christmas.
Wolfsbane and Mistletoe
“New York Times bestselling authors Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur, and Carrie Vaughn—along with eleven other masters of the genre—offer all-new stories on werewolves and the holidays, a fresh variation on the concept that worked so well with birthdays and vampires in Many Bloody Returns.
The holidays can bring out the beast in anyone. They are particularly hard for lycanthropes. Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner have harvested the scariest, funniest and saddest werewolf tales by an outstanding pack of authors, best read by the light of a full moon with a silver bullet close at hand.
Whether wolfing down a holiday feast (use your imagination) or craving some hair of the dog on New Year’s morning, the werewolves in these frighteningly original stories will surprise, delight, amuse, and scare the pants off readers who love a little wolfsbane with their mistletoe.”
Now this Christmas eve instead of dreams of sugarplums and all that nonsense, you can have dream of fangs and fur. Way more badass than plums.
For the record, there is another werewolf Christmas book out there, but it’s only available for the Kindle and I tend to shy away from book only available as an ebook.
