    This book delivers a good old-fashioned monster tale, where the creature is after some children. However, this one comes with a twist, as the creature is no other than Krampus, Santa's Dark Servant. He takes those children that are on the naughty list for behaving badly, especially nx bullying other kids. If the children freely acknowledge and honestly regret their deeds they may be spared a brutal punishment. But this year in New Jersey, Krampus made a mistake, and now he is the one in trouble. This was my second book based on the Krampus legend, and while 'The Dark Servant' stayed close to the original legend, at the same time it was kind of a stereotypical monster story. There where several though very minor things that bothered me. The references to the Nazis, while legitimate, seemed unnecessary. Also, I was not convinced why Krampus made his appearance in New Jersey, of all things. Finally, Krampus was made ridiculous on several occasions, which was entertaining but also counteracted the sense of dread and horror. While I would definitely recommend this book as a well-written scary monster story, when it comes to Krampus I prefer Brom's interpretation of the legend: Krampus: The Yule Lord.
