The Magic of Christmas – a story by Chris Phethean

What if Christmas was lost to the world forever?

What if an evil force threatened the magic of every child’s favourite time of year?

Eleven year old George Thomas learns he has a magical gift - given to him by none other than Father Christmas himself. As George and his family enjoy the run up to Christmas, a dark threat begins to cast a shadow over the festivities. It is down to George to save Christmas from those who hate the festive season and its true meaning.

Travelling to spectacular ice palaces, enchanted forests and festive workshops, George, along with new found friends, races to learn the extent of his own power. With time running out as Christmas Day approaches, he must delve deeper into the mysteries surrounding Christmas and face a terrible decision that only he can make in order to save the magic of Christmas.

Curl up and travel with George to live the Christmas spirit. The Magic of Christmas is a heart-warming and exciting story of one boy’s remarkable adventure. It is a story of family, friendship and trust - and of good versus evil. Classic ingredients for a rollicking good tale! This is a story with Christmas at its very heart.

A NaNoWriMo winning novel

The Magic of Christmas was written during National Novel Writing Month 2015. This 'challenge' sets the ambitious goal of writing a 50,000+ word novel in the month of November, averaging out at 1667 words per day. Using all of his festive memories and excitement about the Christmas period, Chris hit the 50,000 word mark a few days early!

The story has since gone through a lengthy process of editing and refining, ready for delivery just in time for Christmas! The Magic of Christmas will be available to download on Kindle later this year.
