But hold on! There's an angel waiting in the wings. (Wings, get it?) It's none other than the Archangel Raziel come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs granting. Unfortunately, our angel's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch, and before you can say "Kris Kringle" he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen.
Only Christopher Moore, the man who brought you the outrageous lost gospel Lamb and the hysterical fish tale Fluke, could have devised a new holiday classic that tugs at the heartstrings and serves up a healthy slice of fruitcake to boot.

Another Pine Cove winner
This book is not about Christmas or God so if that's what you want don't click the "add to cart" button. This book is about a nerd in a cool guys body, an evil developer, a sexy divorcee, a really stupid arch angle and a fruit bat. Throw in a little murder, a pinch of zombies and the holiday season and you get vintage Christopher Moore. What's not to like?

Read the title before buying
I know it might seem silly to even mention this, but if you purchase a book with "A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror" as part of the title (especially when all descriptions and reviews reinforce the adult nature of the content) and you expect it to be a story for the entire family, you have nobody to blame but yourself when it contains content you might find inappropriate for your kids and easily offended adults.
This was an excellent audiobook. The reading was animated and enjoyable. The content was entertaining and fun. Yes, it's written by an adult for adults. If that's what you're looking for, you'll find plenty to love with this offering.
