rainbow snippets3snippetsunday2Welcome to Rainbow Snippets and Snippet Sunday! Today, Nicolas loses his temper…

*  *  *

Piter watched him, a sneer lifting his ripe lips. “It won’t save them, Jamie. We can get into any house we want, whenever we wish. Truth, my dear Nicolas of Myra?”

Nico replied, his voice low, menacing, “Bastardo. Silenzio, Knecht Ruprecht, dark helper, before I stuff you up a chimney.”

Piter laughed. “Ho, ho! Not such a saint after all, my love. Careful, or our dear Jamieson here will start wondering about you.”

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.
