Dark servants clash ...

Medieval maiden Beate, who's grieving over the mysterious evisceration of her best friend, Gisela, must escape a Bavarian castle’s sadistic creatures.

Standing in her way--beyond towering walls and crossbow-toting guards--are Saint Nicholas's demonic helper, Krampus, and Frau Perchta, a belly-slitting hag who prowls the countryside during First Night festivities to punish naughty teenagers. Beate wants out. Krampus and Frau Perchta want in, determined to breach the castle to snag their prey. Beate has no idea why these monsters want her, but must use her wits to save herself from horrors both human and inhuman--lest she wind up like Gisela.

Praise for Matt Manochio:

"Matt Manochio is a natural born storyteller."
— Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Savage Dead and Dog Days

Praise for Twelfth Krampus Night:

"I have read a couple of Manochio’s books in the past couple months ... and it is clear that he has the talent to be a force in the genre for years to come and I look forward to reading more of his bloody visions in the future and would urge any horror fan to give this book a read."

"I was captivated by the whimsical and darkly humorous story of Krampus and Frau Perchta as they hunt down their prey. I found myself both cringing and laughing out loud more than once while reading this one."
— The Horror Maiden Reviews

"And what a conclusion ... I really like how the story ended, but also what was laid out in the final pages, which put in my mind so many further stories that could be written starring these two amazing characters."
— The Gal in the Blue Mask Reviews

"Twelfth Krampus Night is that naughty, twisted, and gory tale that is the perfect antidote to all the saccharine sweet stuff floating around this holiday season."

"Twelfth Krampus Night is a dark, twisted and gory adult fairytale with a great atmosphere and plenty of humour thrown into the mix.
— Scarlet's Web Reviews
