Hel Takes a Holiday
Take a holiday to Hel and back with this twisted tale of Christmas, and the battle for souls woven into every wreath and scrap of wrapping paper! Something unusual is going on in Santa’s Village; the Naughty and Nice lists are being tampered with, and Santa seems to have more secrets than usual. Hel, the ruler of Helheim, master of Krampus and Death itself, sends a spy to Kris Kringle’s snowy home to uncover the scheme robbing her of souls to torture.
When the Queen of the underworld discovers the dark deceit unfolding at the North Pole, she puts Santa on her own naughty list—not a good place to be! Unleashing her battalions of demons for a Krampusnacht no one will ever forget, she rejoins a war that stretches back thousands of years. However, nothing is as it seems in these lands of myth and magic, and there may be an even greater villain hiding in the shadows. As December 25th draws near, will the truth be revealed, or will Christmas be cancelled forever?
