Christmas Yet to Come by Marian Perrera

ChristmasYetToComeI enjoyed Christmas Yet to Come, a novella coming in the fall of 2015 by Marian Perrera. I give it a solid four stars.

Ms. Perrera develops that most inscrutable character by Dickens—the third ghost who visits Scrooge. Although it turns out, it’s not just Scrooge she visits, but twenty years’ worth of misers, needing to be shocked into repentance. She’s bone-weary and wants to stop.

Now mortal, she appears at another door just before Christmas. The man who lives there, no Scrooge, takes her in and offers her refuge. But to repay his kindness, she may have to sacrifice her new-found humanity.

It was nicely imagined, well-written, with three-dimensional characters. My one quibble is that I found the world-building surrounding the shroud confusing, but it wasn’t enough to stop me from enjoying the story.

If you appreciate fantasy and romance, it would be a worthwhile addition to your Christmas reading list.
