You can ask the reverend, I think hell just froze. This was so different and wonderful. It’s an experience I can’t describe all too well, but you should read it!

This inventive story was a fun read and the illustrations are fantastically creepy. The writing, however, is the clearest and most consistent example of “telling” instead of “showing” that I’ve ever read. The artwork was far more evocative. Altogether, I feel that this would have made a better graphic novel, with the story told through illustrations and dialogue.

Happy Yule! This is more like a 3.5 star rating. I enjoyed the book for what it was - A nifty deconstruction of the myths we celebrate today.

The illustrations might be breathtaking, but on a 10-year-old six-inch ereader, it doesn't matter.

The characters were kinda fun and I'm sure the author followed the myths and legends that grew into Santa Claus and Krampus. That was the fun part of the book. I loved the melding of all those Eastern and Western European religions/folktales into one messy lump. Brom did an excellent job of spitting them back out into an American rural setting that's already been thumped on the head by the urbanization of work and money. Revenge can be sweet.

“Then let us go and be terrible.”

I really don't think these are spoilers, but I'm hiding them anyway.

Not so fun were all the fully human and non-legendary characters. Specifically, the main character of Jesse. He was a doofus at the beginning of the book and mostly remained that way for the rest of the book. The minimal character growth he showed nothing more than local knowledge or shoveled to him by other characters. Even his redemption arc didn't do much for me. It was too quick and magical.

Brom tries hard to make Dillard a little rounded, but fails hard. There's just no reason that Linda would be with him. Ever.

Slewfoot was the perfect book for hiding out in the air-conditioning and reading non-stop. Seriously. It's hot and I was hooked from the first page.

I loved the premise of the book - In the puritanical era of 1600s (1666 I see what you did there...) New England, what if one of the women accused of witchery actually was what she was accused of. I loved the morality of the book - Why do people consider one religion true over another? What happens when your belief is challenged and you are forced to confront what you truly are?

With tertiary characters aside, nearly all of the characters experience exposure of their genuine selves and real change. None if it is pretty. Most of it is gruesome and emotionally rending.

For people who are deeply bothered by violence to animals (as I generally am) - There is bunches and it is hard. It's life and death in the wilderness. It's not meaningful or meaningless. Good or evil. It just is.

With the exception of one:

Booka's death was meaningful to Abitha and it drove her to action. In the end Booka was the familiar and her death was the spell that was needed to utterly destroy Sutton.

My thoughts on the violence toward animals came to a sharp focus at the end/epilogue. Humans are animals and we all gotta eat.

One more thing behind the spoiler:

That revenge was so, so sweet.


I can't comment on the art work because I read it on my ancient Kobo. I'm sure that it's lovely. Eventually I'll get around to ordering the hardback of the book. I've got it on my wishlist now. I'll definitely read more of Brom's books now. This one was fantastic.
