Publisher's Summary

December, 1323 AD - Holly and ivy decorate the houses while voices are raised in song, but the Christmas cheer is tempered by terror this festive season, as demons haunt a small English village. Strange thefts; cloven hoof-prints in the snow; a house burned to the ground. Something evil stalks the icy streets of Brandesburton and former mercenary Tuck must find out what, before it's too late. As he sets out to solve the mystery the friar prays his faith will protect him. His faith...and his great quarterstaff, for he knows full well - the Devil makes no deals.... This brand new novella from the best-selling author of the Forest Lord series will delight and entertain historical fiction fans looking to escape the madness of Christmas shopping for a little while. Grab a mince pie, warm some mulled wine, and join Friar Tuck on this snowy adventure!

Great performance of a grand story.

Would you consider the audio edition of Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil to be better than the print version?

Nick Ellsworth delivers a first rate performance of Good Friar's Christmas adventure and I find his Tuck voice to be a perfect match to this wonderful short story. The read alone is great and the listen now makes the story that much better.

What did you like best about this story?

I find McKay's "Tuck" character to be the best of the many Tucks produced over the years. Most realistic in manner and his back story puts him in the context of the outlaw model with a most complete and believable grounding.

Have you listened to any of Nick Ellsworth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have enjoyed listening to all of the McKay stories as read by Nick Ellsworth. Mr. Ellsworth gives each story a life in voice that enhances every aspect of the adventure.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The manner in which Tuck relates to the young brother and sister as an understanding friend and fellow outlaw brings an element of humanity to his character which warms the story to just the right degree.

Not what I expected 😞

I was hoping for a bit more scary/threatening type of story line, but alas, it was not meant to be. I guess I was expecting a Krampuus type character but nothing like that even remotely occurs in this story. Excellent narration though!
