Book One of the Chronicles of Saint Nikolaus, Rowan and the Dreadful Kidnapping is written for middle grade readers, ages 9-14. It is an epic fantasy that turns one of the world’s most beloved stories into an adventure of a lifetime!
Suspended high above the North Pole, the ancient Village of the Saints is on the verge of hysteria. Sainit Nilolaus’s nine reindeer have been kidnapped. The prime suspect? Rowan, a small wood-elf who only recently arrived in the Village.
Determined to clear her name and find the kidnapped reindeer, Rowan must do so before Christmas Eve or Saint Nikolaus will be forced to cancel his customary trip around the globe.
As she embarks on her perilous journey, Rowan stumbles across a mortal boy and his polar bear who join the fight. Together, they start on a quest that brings them face to face with evil itself. Goblins, witches, ghost, and vampires are only the beginning for Rowan and her companions.
Readers will get lost in a world where willipods lend as much mischief as help, polar bears play tricks on goblins, monsters transform into elves, constellations walk and talk, dwarves dwell in ice grottos…and reindeer fly!
