It’s been a few years since Rise of the Guardians came out, and I’m still in love with the story. Unfortunately, though there’s been occasional talk of a sequel, I think it might be wise to not get our hopes up. As such, wanting to know more about the mythology behind the movie, I finally sat down to read the book series the movie’s based on.
Nicholas St. North chronicles how North went from a Cossack outlaw into the man we know as Santa Claus. As this is a book series, it naturally has a lot more mythology and characters than we see in the movie. And at 228 pages with large font, it’s a very easy read; I blew through the first novel in just a couple hours. Nicholas St. North is a simple, engaging read, and I loved almost every moment of it.
