Reminiscent of a fairy tale. this is basically a Christmas fantasy. Go into the imaginary world of Erradu and get lost there. Older children will love it. I will admit it took a while to get used to the different fonts and the writing style but once I got totally into the story, I couldn’t put it down.
The City of the Light, once connected to Earth by the Star of Christmas, lays in ruin. The King, Kris Kringle, wanes and the Elves, once so plentiful, are all but gone. Darkstars, the evil Queen’s flying dreadnaughts, manned by Goblins and supported by vicious Bogeybats, now prowl what had been the tranquil skies of Erradu; forcing all, from the enchanted forest of Jaden to Nobela in the Land of Lions, to live under constant threat of attack.
Still, there exist within the heart of the old King a belief that from the city of men a champion will rise to vanquish the dark and keep safe the light—a great warrior who will return hope to the children of Earth and restore peace throughout the land.
This then is the story of Windel. A young man from Detroit who is not a great warrior, nor would many consider him to be a champion, but as you shall see, it’s often the small in stature but big in heart that fate uses to confound the mighty.
