When I received Mia's invitation to participate in the Twelve Days of Christmas event, I immediately knew I had to take part. Why? The Twelve Days of Christmas actually features in the second book of my (otherwise) dark, dystopian series.
That's certainly what most of the residents of Outpost Three are wondering, and in the words of our heroine, Eden, "Christmas? What the hell is that?"
Christmas might seem odd and out of place— silly, even— after the oppressiveness and trauma that dominated the first novel. But the world of E has not entirely forgotten its history. And never underestimate a sexy, semi-evil overlord with people skills and a way of motivating the populace through a heady fear-inspiration combo.
In fact, Matt, the genius (or madness) behind dystopian Christmas, has proven to be one of my readers' all-time favorite characters. He has a number of other quirks that make him quite appealing... yep, even when he's killing people.
So, in honor of Matt's Christmas, here's the end/beginning of The Twelve Days of Dystopian Christmas, containing things that can indeed be found in Evolution (E #2). It would be great fun if you'd all comment with your own ideas to fill up the rest of the song.
