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 🙂
