This holiday season has bite.
Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.
But fate has other plans for Ben.
Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.
’Tis the season…to be undead.
Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms… _________________

Ben is on a path of destruction because as far as he is concerned his life is not worth much. Ten years ago, on Christmas eve, he lost all which was important to him, when a rogue vampire turned him. Since then Christmas was a reminder of the pain and loss and so, he detests the holiday. He spends his time hunting and killing criminals. Then one fateful Christmas eve while on the verge of killing someone a demon from his past visited him with the offer of redemption. Now he relives his past, see his present and gain a peek at his future.
I enjoyed this short but intriguing paranormal story, which was a nice twist of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. The story demonstrated that love is all about making sacrifices. Ben learnt this lesson well. There were twists I never expected, which made for some interesting moments.
Overall, this was a wonderful read and one I would recommend.
