Nicholas St. North is a daring, rootless, and swashbuckling young swordsman who spends his days thieving and chasing adventure around the world with his friends. His path leads him to the secretive village of Santoff Clausen, rumored to have the greatest treasure in all of the East and protected, so it’s said, by the great wizard Ombric Shalazar. When he gets there, though, it’s only to find the town in the midst of a battle with a ferocious bear possessed by Pitch, the dreaded Nightmare King. Now Nicholas must decide: does he seek his own fortune, or does he help Shalazar, Shalazar’s adopted daughter Katherine, and the villagers in their desperate fight? This exciting, imaginative tale will completely engross readers as it reveals the true origins of everyone’s favorite Yuletide figure.
