A delightfully dark and cozy Executioner Knight’s short Christmas tale!
Maxton of Loxbeare is a tough man with a tough heart… but also a tender heart when it comes to his three little daughters. On a snowy Christmas eve, Maxton tells them a rather wild tale of the birth of Christ, much to the distress of his wife. She scolds Maxton, he laughs… and continues with his naughty tales. Everything is fun and games until that night when he drifts off to sleep…
And a ghost of Christmas Future comes to visit him.
Find out what has Maxton mending his ways when it comes to the stories he tells his impressionable young children… is it the spirit of Christmas? Or the penitence of a remorseful father?
It’s love, laughter, and a little good old-fashioned fear on the eve of the Executioner Knight’s Christmas!
