An Alisa Review: Santa’s Kinky Elf, Simon by Damian Serbu

Standard

Rating:  3.5 stars out of 5

Santa has big plans to release a story about himself right before Christmas, revealing his true nature as a vampire. He decides the best advanced publicity comes from reality stories and enlists Simon the Elf, a captive former human, to hit Chicago for the holidays and strike up a romance.

Santa wants Simon to document the whole thing, so they can give people a taste for life under Santa’s enslavement before the main story hits. Forced to the Second City against his will, Simon at first resists Santa’s orders, knowing a romance would be short lived at best, and at worst bring some innocent victim into Santa’s evil orbit.

But Simon failed to reckon with the charm and wit of Jonah, a hot guy he meets his first night on the town. Falling hard, Simon takes up with his new love despite knowing the awful choice ahead of him. Santa’s Kinky Elf, Simon, tells you this tragic love story in the elf’s own words.

So this is apparently a prelude to Santa is a Vampire that comes out later this month and Santa wants people to like Simon before his book comes out.  That is probably that what I am waiting for the most to see if it continues anything from this story at all.

Santa hasn’t put himself in a good light in this book but doesn’t really mean to but I do like Simon.  I see him struggle to do Santa’s bidding and how he doesn’t want to hurt Jonah but I loved their instant connection.  I don’t know if it’s quite the tragic love story Santa had wanted but you can still see Simon’s hurt at having to leave Jonah.

I like the cover art by Natasha Snow is great and the standard for holiday shorts this year.
