Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ William Joyce

Characters ✓ Nicholas St North and the Battle of the Nightmare King 106 Before SANTA was SANTA he was North Nicholas St North a daredevil swordsman whose prowess with double scimitars was legendary Like any swashbuckling young warrior North seeks treasure and adventure leading him to the fiercely guarded village of Santoff Claussen said to be home to the greatest. This was a great story and yet there was something about it that didn t fully hook me After reading his other books like the Sandman I know William Joyce can weave a crafty tale that carries you along on wings of silver and this story was missing something to bring it fully to lifeSantaff Clausen is the name of the city this takes place and there is magic in the world that this place harnesses The imagination behind the book is fantastic as usual I do plan on going on with this story and I hope it gets better with each book

The possibilities were endless Battles would be fought Wonders revealed Many journeys Many lands Many joys Many sorrows William Joyce Nicholas St North and the Battle of the Nightmare King The Guardians 1In the center of a large forest protected by a spirit that tempts trespassers with glittering jewels and guarded by a ferocious bear that stalks the shadows lies the hidden village of Santoff Claussen This strange place is hidden from the world and is home to an odd group of individuals including families with children that are capable of speaking to insects and an old wizard from Atlantis Ombric Shalazar who is able to perform amazing magical feats Deep within the shadows an evil stirs an evil that is both ancient and terrifying Pitch the Nightmare King and his Fearlings have awoken and Ombric cannot defeat them on his own He needs the help of a brave warrior who may not know just how special he is This is where Nicholas St North enters the picture A bandit who knows the way of the sword is the only one with the power to help save Santoff Claussen and destroy Pitch once and for all The only problem however is getting North on their side North loves adventure and is soon lured to the illusive village His men all easily fall to the traps that protect the people and North is the only one who enters Santoff Claussen This one man is pure of heart and becomes Ombric s apprentice North begins to display some interesting talents and builds a creature unlike any other a mechanical djinni This creation may be his undoing as Pitch will use anything to rid the world of Nicholas St North Will North be able to defeat the Nightmare King or will his own handiwork be his undoingWilliam Joyce has crafted a delightful children s story filled with adventure and inspiring characters He removes all previous notions of how old St Nick should be portrayed North is nothing like the jolly white bearded elderly gentleman that we often picture as Santa Claus He has crafted North in such a way that he is seen as a warrior but a warrior that still holds the desire to save children and their happiness within his heart I love the fact that Joyce has created such interesting origins for famous holiday icons and beings that many children believe in The series itself is a great concept and I cannot wait to read the stories of the Easter Bunny Tooth Fairy and Sandman I have to say that this series definitely piued my interesting after I was able to see the movie The Rise of the Guardians Both are severely dissimilar but it s great to be able to see where the movie s inspiration arose My only ualm with this book however would be the fact that it was not as in depth as I had hoped it would be It is a Middle Grade novel therefore the characters are not as deep and the adventures are uite short I wonder what the story would have been like if it had been a Young Adult novelOverall it was a great book and it head breathtaking illustrations
