Slay Bells

Author(s): Joshua Calkins-Treworgy

T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house, dark creatures came lurking, to tear, rend and gouge!
 
'Tis the season once again, and the jolly fat man, Saint Nicholas himself, must figure out how he will contend with the dark denizens of Amelia City and deliver presents for the good little boys and girls. These aren't spooks and critters left over from Halloween; these are beasts whose sole intent is to deliver slaughter. Is there enough holiday magic up Santa's sleeve to stand victorious over them all?
 
A new entry in the worldwide, bestselling horror series Roads Through Amelia.
