Review; The Lights - A Christmas Horror by Carrie Pack

It's Christmas Day and what more fitting, than posting a review of a Christmas themed horror novella? I recently read The Lights by Carrie Pack and today I'll share my review.

Description from Goodreads
It's winter break and Molly Monroe is content to enjoy her town's annual Festival of Lights with her girlfriend Chelsea at her side. But almost immediately after the lights go up, the town's children begin to act strangely, especially Molly's own brother, Roger. When their next-door neighbors are killed in a grisly double homicide, Molly begins to suspect the incidents are linked. Now she must convince her parents and the rest of the town to take down the Christmas lights before everyone gets killed.

My Thoughts on the Book
The Lights is a fast paced and quick read, which easily can be read in one sitting. The plot is a bit terrifying, because of the possessed murderous kids (it's not your cutesey and fluffy Christmas romance novel, all right). While I liked the plot and the storyline, I think the ending could have been a wee bit better, but I'm not complaning. I really liked Molly, Chelsea and Brandon though. Not only is there a f/f romantic relationship (Molly and Chelsea), Brandon is nonbinary and ace, so it's certainly a bit diverse in terms of LGBT+ representation.

Overall, it was a fun and gory read, so feel free to pick it up.
