A Very Vampire Christmas

This is a review of the short story “A Very Vampire Christmas” by Charlaine Harris. It can be found in the December 2010 edition of Glamour Magazine.

“A Very Vampire Christmas” is the fifth Dahlia Lynley-Chivers short story.

It takes place in the Sookieverse but has nothing to do with Sookie Stackhouse and chronologically comes after the Dahlia short story “Death By Dahlia“.

Dahlia and her best friend Taffy are out doing some Christmas shopping. Dahlia doesn’t usually take part in this kind of thing, but she’s decided to give it a go this year.

They are happily (in Taffy’s case, Dahlia is more bewildered than anything) shopping, when they notice lots of children lining up for their Santa photos. But there is something wrong with Santa’s helpers…

They are elves. Not your cute-sy elves either. Real elves. Flesh consuming elves.

A funny Christmas story 🙂

Bacon

This is a review of the short story “Bacon” by Charlaine Harris. It can be found in the anthology “Strange Brew”.

“Bacon” is the second Dahlia Lynley-Chivers short story.

It takes place in the Sookieverse but has nothing to do with Sookie Stackhouse and chronologically comes after the short story “Tacky“.

Dahlia Lynley-Chivers is a widow. A very unhappy widow. She wants revenge for the death of her husband, werewolf Todd Swinton of the Swiftfoot pack.

She seeks the help of a powerful witch, Kathy Aenidis (a direct descendant of The Circe) to take revenge on those she believes responsible for his death.

Her beloved Todd was challenged and unfairly killed (by way of skulduggery) by a member of the rival Rhodes pack, The Ripper Pack.

Dahlia’s plan for revenge is much more convoluted than it appears at first look…

An entertaining read. Great for a mini escape from reality.
