☾ the synopsis
Alvina is a very bad girl. Instead of learning magic from her kind Master Jareth, she naps during lessons, lies, and steals his magic potions. When she overhears Jareth speak of his miraculous pleasure potion, she can’t resist stealing some for herself. In the dead of night she guzzles the brew, and is overwhelmed with uncontrollable magical orgasms.
Unlucky for her, Krampus – the monstrous punisher of the wicked – is wandering the woods on the night of her deceitful deed, and decides to punish her for her misbehavior.
Alvina is given a hard paddling by Krampus, helpless to escape as her magical arousal keeps her trapped in sensations of pleasure and pain. She’s manhandled easily by the massive man-beast, dangled in the air and suspended to kick and struggle as she’s spanked. Soon Alvina is begging for release, desperate to be stretched by Krampus’s massive cock and filled with his seed.
Alvina receives a final, painful caning from her handsome Master Jareth, as Krampus instructs him in the ways of punishing his wayward apprentice.
☾ the characters
Alvina is 20-something when the story takes place, but since she just doesn’t want to be done with her time as a student, she takes Jareth’s kindness for granted and extends her stay at his house, where she continues to do things that test his patience, so when it becomes time for Krampus to punish her, she has a few lessons to learn.
Jareth is Alvina’s teacher and a skilled wizard, especially when it comes to potions. He’s developed a particularly naughty one – one that Alvina just has to ger her hands on.
But not everything about Jareth is all nice instead of naughty.
Krampus is a beast. A wicked, sadistic beast who takes pleasure in seeing the bad whipped out of people, and when it comes to Alvina, he also takes pleasure in seeing her mouth on him.
But since he has other people to punish, he decides to leave his quiver behind for Master Jareth.
☾ the world building
The story is set between St. Nikolaus’s Day and Christmas Eve in a world where wizard and witches exist – and so do, apparently, the tales of St. Nikolaus and Krampus.
The setting is a lovely hut in winter that sounds absolutely magical, and if it wasn’t for the switches on the mantle, I would consider living there.
☾ what i liked about this book
My favorite part was definitely the setting. The last couple of years I found it very hard to get into the Christmas Spirit, and a hut that has a giant tree in it and smells of winter spices seems like just the right thing to get you into the Christmas mood.
The sight of orgasms might just be a bonus.
☾ what i disliked about this book
Well, I can’t exactly say Krampus, because while he is scary, he’s the essential character in this book.
But of course, monster-sex isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you don’t like or can’t stand that stuff even for 36 pages, you shouldn’t pick this book up.
The thing that I actually disliked was the age difference – while you can do the maths and figure out Alvina’s age, Jareth’s isn’t even mentioned (and Krampus is ancient anyway so yeah) and I can’t say I am the biggest fan of the fact that I don’t know how old Jareth is. I’m guessing he might be 40 or something which is a pretty big age gap to not be mentioned (but since they didn’t actually have sex I don’t really see it as a thing that made me enjoy the story less).
☾ should you read this book?
If monster-sex and age gaps don’t bother you, then yes, I think this book might be a thing you should pick up if you’re feeling naughty during the holidays.
If they do bother you, stay away from this book.
That’s all I can say about this.
