WHAT’S THE STORY?
Once upon a time, there were two great sorcerers, Ramon Lulli and Arnold of Todi. To decide who was the most powerful, they made a wager. Who could invent the most incredible magical power, never seen before?
After a year, Ramon returned with an elixir, which would grant the drinker eternal life. But then Arnold revealed his invention.
A box of his own invention. A mysterious and wondrous Box of Delights, with dark powers.
Before Ramon could respond, Arnold disappeared, taking his Box with him.
Now centuries later, a boy on a train traveling home for the holidays, is about to be drawn into an ancient magical struggle, that will see him fighting not just for his life, but to save Christmas itself.
Watch out, Kay Harker, for the wolves are running…
