Kingdom Claus: Book 1, a new book by Adam David Brown, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Long ago, and far away in the lands of The North - a vast country at the top of the world and unseen by man - two kingdoms will become entrenched in battle. One for dominance, one for justice. King Claus was once a fighting prince, known as Santa the Red, and is now a warrior king. King Claus defends his kingdom against the ever-pressing encroachment of King Amaranth, a warlord who rose to power through deceit and murder and is hellbent on ruling The North. The shadow grows over the lands as Claus' emissary, a monk named Halding, unknowingly uncovers Amaranth's plot to take Kingdom Claus by force. Long before Claus became Father Christmas, as we know him today, he was a great and noble king who fiercely defended his kingdom against darkness and malice. Join along on this tale of magic, might, myths, monsters, and mammoths.
