Instinctively, he grabbed Andy and pressed his face against his shoulder. “Don’t look,” he warned, his own gaze riveted on the beast nearing the bed. The boy squirmed but Jamie held him tight. “I’ve got you. You’re safe. Just don’t look at it. It’s not real.”

“But I am,” the thing hissed, its gravelly voice sending a shudder through Jamie. It waved a clawed hand. “Sleep.”

Betrayed by a lover, Jamie rents an isolated cabin on Lake Huron, wanting only to be left alone. Instead, he is pulled from his solitary existence as an artist and tumbles headlong into the legend of Saint Nicolas.

As a young man, Nicolas accidentally killed a man intent on murdering three children, only to have the man’s malicious spirit rise up against him. Fleeing through the centuries from the Krampus, the evil troll-like creature that dogs his steps, Nico finds refuge with the young artist who takes him into his home and bed. But Jamie has questions. Who is Nicolas, and why does the Krampus want to destroy him?

When the Krampus begins to torment and torture anyone Nico comes in contact with to punish him, Jamie’s life is put in danger. And Jamie isn’t sure whether he can help Nico defeat his nemesis or if he’s merely a pawn in the Krampus’s game.
