Book Review: Yuletide Invasion: A Holiday Horror Novella By J. C. Moore

Yuletide Invasion: A Holiday Horror Novella

Christmas Eve. 1986.
A blizzard pounds upstate New York. The wind moans and the never stopping snow...and lood...pile up.
The weather forces strangers from different walks of life to shelter from the storm as a monstrous creature crashes their festivities. The being inhabits the bodies of the slain like a malicious virus.
This isn't a night for Santa and children's smiles as evil delivers a whole new meaning to a "night before Christmas!"

A grandmother tells her granddaughter a true story about Christmas Eve in Upstate New York in 1986. Some people in a diner and a convenience store next to it are stuck in a blizzard. With the blizzard came something else: an alien invasion.

I like to find Christmas books to read for the month of December, other than the story of Scrooge and the three ghosts that visit him or a sappy love story. When I saw this novella released, it reminded me of War of the Worlds by HG Wells and of course, two 80s alien invasion movies, Attack of the Killer Klowns and The Thing (John Carpenter’s version, as it was close to the story, Who Goes There? by John Campbell-redone as a novella, Frozen Hell.) Anyway, this novella mixes something like The Thing with Christmas. I enjoyed it. 

If you want to read something Christmassy, that is not about Scrooge or the baby Jesus, or people falling in love, and if scary ghost stories and/or alien stories are your thing, this might be the read you want.

I gave Yuletide Invasion: A Holiday Horror Novella 4 “Scary Christmas” sheep.
