Review by Linda Yau
The setting for Miskatonic Mistletoe is supposedly centuries after the space and information ages. Corin is a werewolf moving into Arkham, Massachusetts with his mate Cian who is a half-elf. They move into this location to advert an apocalypse, however they are elderly in age and request for assistant from their friends Dan and Paul who are like Corin -fellow werewolves.
I believe this is the last Christmas story I will ever try to review during the summer time, much less try to read in eighty degree weather. I am still trying to get over my feelings of strangeness in reading this paranormal fantasy adventure story.
There are some issues with Miskatonic Mistletoe. First thing, with the diction of the story, the atmosphere didn't feel as festive of the holiday season as prevalent as the other three or so, ebooks that I have reviewed earlier with the Christmas theme, so this is a small blessing in the hot weather. Two this story feels quite rushed and incomplete, meaning that this story may have been part of a series that the author previously written.
Three this story basically had two different couples that has much love between them, erotic scenes between them were sparse in favor of more cuddling and emotive dramatic scenes. The word Miskatonic in the title refers to the location that the apocalypse is going to take place. Miskatonic Mistletoeis definitely for people who would like to read a short dramatic adventure story filled with unique characters.

Thank you for the review.
If I left you feeling strange that's all to the good. An H.P. Lovecraft pastiche should leave the reader discomfited.
It is indeed part of a series, probably the last story of my Gay Christmas Werewolves.
