It is the end of the Age of Rome, and the beginning of a story that will last forever.

The story of a hero named Krin, whose flight from Roman Legionnaires takes him to a strange and wondrous land deep in the the wilds of Germania.

The story of the mysterious valley called Thana Pel, where the Magi of old stand watch at the chasm that separates the world we know from the world we only dream of...The land of Wyndter, the realm of the Fae.

The story of the quest to find the Crown of Nandur--the last remains of a majestic and ancient creature, as old as the world itself--a talisman that can bind the worlds together, and awaken an army of long dead dragons, buried deep in the heart of Thana Pel.

To save our world from the evil schemes of renegade magus Sair'n Kryl, Krin, accompanied by a rag-tag band of unlikely heroes, must recover the Crown of Nandur before the gates of Wyndter open, and the world of mankind is subjugated by the dark faery empire of the Winterking.


"Intoxicating! To combine the elements of biblical history with fact and fantasy and magic is a wondrous, rarely utilized art of storytelling. The result is a gem of a tale - a masterfully crafted chronicle - a luscious feast of a narrative that thrills." ~ Ashley Knight, author of Seeking God.

"I love it when an author sets for himself a seemingly impossible goal and manages to nail it. Legend of the Winterking is such a book. Here Mr. Holloway has taken the legend of Kris Kringle and crafted a full-blown epic fantasy. I'm both amazed and delighted!" ~ Kerry Nietz, author of Amish Vampires in Space.

"A rich and ambitious re-imagining of a classic legend, Legend of the Winterking takes you to places strange and wondrous. Not since L. Frank Baum has anyone tackled the origins of this mythic figure with such depth. An epic fantasy adventure to tantalize the imagination and refresh the spirit." ~ Robert Mullin, author of Bid the Gods Arise.
