Jake & The Gingerbread Wars (A Gryphon Chronicles Christmas Novella)
by E. G. Foley




Overview -
NY Times Bestselling Author E.G. Foley brews up a magical potion for fantasy readers of all ages

Take a dash of Harry Potter and a splash of Oliver Twist, add a pinch of steampunk and a sprinkle of Victorian fairy lore, and what do you get? The Gryphon Chronicles A rollicking fantasy adventure series that's as much fun for grownups as it is for kids.

A very special Gryphon Chronicles story, for all those who love A Christmas Carol and savor the joys and traditions of a Victorian Christmas.

(Note: This book can stand alone without having read the rest of the series.)

Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men...and Gingerbread Men?
After his harsh beginnings as a rough-and-tumble orphan on the streets of Victorian London, Jake Everton, the twelve-year-old Lord Griffon, takes his rightful place as the long-lost heir of an aristocratic family with magical powers-his personal quest, to follow in his slain parents' footsteps as a Lightrider in the age-old battle of good versus evil. In the fantastical nooks and crannies of the Victorian Age, Jake and his friends (including his pet Gryphon) find no shortage of adventure-righting magic-related wrongs, solving supernatural mysteries, and exploring wondrous new worlds. Now it's Jake's first Christmas with his eccentric magical relatives...but trouble never takes a holiday.

Santa's Horrid Little Helper
Humbug hates being a Christmas elf. Instead of making toys, he'd rather make mischief. Angling for a new job in Halloween Town, he sets out to prove he's frightful enough for the post by ruining Christmas for as many people as possible-until Jake and his friends manage to capture the little troublemaker, determined to put a stop to his devious schemes.

When the kids find out that Santa is offering a reward of 'One Christmas Wish Granted' for the safe return of his runaway elf, the gang sets out on a rip-roaring, snowbound adventure to the North Pole to hand Humbug over and collect the bounty. But the way is fraught with danger, leaving Jake and his pals to wonder if they'll make it home in time for Christmas-or if they'll even make it back alive

"A wonderful novel in the same vein as Harry Potter, full of nonstop action, magical creatures, and the reality that was Queen Victoria's England." The Reading Caf

Dear Reader,
Although this book is connected to The Gryphon Chronicles series, it was written to stand alone, so you can still enjoy it just as much even if you haven't read the full-length novels. For readers who ARE following the adventures of Jake and his friends, consider this story #3.5 in the series. As a Christmas tale, GINGERBREAD WARS is the lightest of the stories, and is half the length of the regular novels.

The Gryphon Chronicles are fun family reading for ages 10 & up, but younger kids who are avid readers should do fine with them, too. Thank you for your interest in our work

With warmest wishes,
E.G. Foley
