Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King is the first chapter book in The Guardians of Childhood series.


Before St. Nick was St. Nick, he was North, Nicholas St. North, a daredevil swordsman, ruffian, and notorious outlaw. His prowess with weaponry of all kinds was infamous and he sought riches and treasure at all costs. Hardly hero material.'But heroes are not born—they're tested.

When real villains enter the scene in the shifting shape of Pitch and his dreaded Fearlings, North finds a different use for his famed fighting abilities.

Here, in this first in a series of epic Guardian adventures, meet the legendary St. Nick. You've known about him for years, but, it turns out, you don't really know him at all...
