Adult Written by Movie Man November 15, I am an avid fan of Mr. Carrey's work, but this is just disastorous. The furthest thing from a familly film put out by Disney Don't be fooled, just because it is from Disney, it doesn't mean this is a family movie. The movie starts out with a corpse and it only gets worst. Kid, 11 years old December 4, I am 11 years old and I saw this movie.
I really enjoyed it, I thought the message was good, but there were some scenes where I had to cover my eyes. Kid, 12 years old February 4, Scary but good This is a very good movie, but it is way more scary then other Disney movies. There are skeletons, a dead body in a coffin, and about one-hundred ghost that lo Is it any good?

I loved the author's take on familiar's and their role with witches. Stone seems like an interesting character and I would have liked to have read more about him, but my favorite character is Ebony. Dec 20, Tim Shepard rated it really liked it. A pretty good collection I don't usually care for anthologies. They tend to bre more boring stories than any thing else.
This collection though has a good set tales. I found only two I didnt care for. That said the best stories in my opinion were thee novella at the beginning of the book and the story by Pauleen Creeden. Jan 09, Vanessa rated it really liked it Shelves: It ranges from stars. All the stories were enjoyable.
Common Sense says
The longer ones were the best. Some were too short to really be anything. All in All, fun to read. Christmas with paranormal instead of some heartwarming contemporary. I could read more Christmas books if they were like some of the stories in here. Nov 28, Linda rated it it was amazing. Peppermint and Pentacles by Melanie Karsak A fast fun and entertaining story. Clemeny is a agent for the Red Cape Society and hunts werewolves. Agent Hunter is her boss and puts her in a different case but can they stop the thing that is kidnapping children if they don't know what it is?
I wonder if Clemeny will ever find out who her mother is? Dec 14, Charlotte rated it did not like it. I rarely if ever give less than 2 stars, this book of snippets of stories are just so badly put together. I would give it a zero if not for the first story being cute. Don't waste your time on this one. Jan 12, Debbie rated it it was ok. Different This was a challenging one to rate because it was a collection of short stories by different authors.
Some better than others, none all that great. Not much substance as the plots didn't have enough time to develop and some didn't really conclude. Feb 28, Page Wench rated it did not like it. Lackluster collection of paranormal shorts that came across as authors on a fishing expediton hoping to lure readers with the charms of their characters and plot lines.
I reached the end without being caught by anyone. Feb 20, Karl Schaeffer rated it liked it. Book Bub e-book bargain. My obligatory holiday book for the year. Not a rom com, but supernatural tales. This collection is an obvious ploy to introduce the reader to various authors. Some stories better than others.
I liked Peppermint and Pentacles by Melanie Karsek. Eggnog and Exorcism is a good urban fantasy.

Favorite story was Peppermint and Pentacles which was a steampunk novel that a hint of Charles Stross Laundry Files about it. Nov 28, Jennifer Hernandez rated it liked it. Some were more holiday related and some were stretches, but it a nice way to pass the time. Nov 26, Andretta Schellinger rated it it was amazing. Good collection This is a good collection of stories that range from hunters to innocents to mermaids and everything inbetween. There is hate, there is love, there are sexy men and women. Give it a chance there is at least one story that will grab you. Jan 06, Ruth Caves rated it it was amazing.
Short stories Interesting, but all together too short. Loved the powerful female roles. Authors should do well. Holidays should be more about co-existence and less about how "my religion is THE reason for this season". Jan 09, Erin Gomez rated it liked it. This was a decent collection of short stories. I thought they would all be longer, like the first story.
Most were very short and seemed to be exerts from a longer story, or backgrounds of characters that I had never met. Dec 23, Norma Thompson rated it did not like it. Waste of time Some stories were incomplete "buy a book" , not at all Christmassy and. The book was free I wonder why so no loss there, only a waste of my time looking for at least one good story. Dec 21, Katie rated it it was amazing.
Fantastic collection of short stories, wonderful holiday read, highly recommend Reading regardless of the time of Year. Dec 19, April rated it it was ok. Some good, some bad Honestly, I read about half of the stories.
A Darcy Christmas by Sharon Lathan
I tried all of them and few grabbed my attention to read them through to the end. The Krampus one and the Ghost of Christmas Past were probably the best. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A steampunk connoisseur, zombie whisperer, and heir to the iron throne, the author currently lives in Florida with her husband and two children.
His last three books were flops and he was broke and well into debt. Out of ideas he is up against the wire knowing another flop could very well kill his career. When inspiration finally strikes, he is forced to publish the book himself because no publisher wants to do a Christmas book and he has to finish in just six weeks in order to release before Christmas. When Dickens is writing, he sees his characters in the room with him and talks to them to develop the character.
This is best done with his conversations with Scrooge Christopher Plummer a character he created as an amalgamation of London's snobby elite who helps he learn about himself as he writes. The story also dives into Dickens early life, especially his relationship with his father Jonathan Pryce , which helps the viewer understand what drove and inspired Dickens. This is definitely a movie that assumes familiarity with A Christmas Carol, since it constantly references the story.
The title is also a misnomer of sorts, there is no real perspective as to what Christmas was like before A Christmas Carol. And while Dickens did shape a new form of Christmas, it is not the Christmas that is celebrated today. Dickens' Christmas was focused on charitable giving and coming together with loved ones, that Christmas has been lost for a while in favor of a more consumerist Christmas.
