A Vampire's Christmas Carol by Cynthia Eden

This holiday season has bite.
Ben Prescott hates Christmas—he’s a vampire, and to him, there’s certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he’s hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way…by stalking deadly prey.

But fate has other plans for Ben.
Three visitors are coming Ben’s way…A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben’s future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can’t be saved by anyone or anything.

’Tis the season…to be undead.
Ben’s redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost—Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben’s arms…

Very cute retelling of the Christmas story for excellence by Charles Dickens.
The protagonist of the short novel by Cynthia Eden is a vampire, Ben, who without realizing  is close to a hit the point that threatens to turn him into one of the creatures that he has always hated.
The Christmas holiday season have become for him one of the most troubled moments, when he lost the woman he loved during this time of year in the past.
But he is not aware of many things that pertained to Simone, and during this night he discovers the truth about her and he can decide to change things and choose who he wants to become.
Being a short story the author could not enrich it with more details  about the story on Simon and Ben, but nonetheless it is a very cute and enjoyable tale with a very Christmas climate
Thanks Netgalley and Cynthia Eden for the book
RATING: 3 stars

Rivisitazione molto carina del racconto di Natale per eccellenza di Charles Dickens.
Il protagonista della novella breve di Cynthia Eden è un vampiro, Ben, che senza rendersene conto è vicino a un punto di non ritorno che rischia di trasformarlo in una delle creature che ha sempre odiato.
Le festività natalizie sono diventate per lui uno dei momenti più tormentati, da quando ha perso la donna che amava proprio durante questo periodo dell'anno nel passato.
Ma Ben non è a conoscenza di molte cose che riguardavano Simone, e durante questa notte scoprirà la verità e potrà decidere di cambiare le cose e scegliere chi diventare.
Essendo una storia breve l'autrice non ha potuto arricchire con più particolari la storia su Simone e Ben, ma comunque è un racconto molto carino e piacevole con un clima molto natalizio
Ringrazio Netgalley e Cynthia Eden per il libro.
