Publisher's Summary

Christmas is hot.
When Kandi’s dad gets a mysterious call, they fly to a tropical island where the buildings are enormous and the rooms empty. Despite the heat, his sunburned client wears a heavy cloak.
Kandi meets a boy living all alone in one of the empty resorts. When he goes missing, she enlists the help of the technological wonders that haunt the island to find him. What she uncovers is a much deeper mystery that will affect more than just Christmas. The world doesn’t know it yet, but Santa Claus is missing. Kandi knows where he is.
And why.

Because of Claus ...

Another sci-fantastical adventure.

There are retellings and back stories and then there are •masterpieces• Tony's books are a work of stellar creativity, science fiction, sound plots, and characters that ROCK.

This holiday book takes us to an island with incredible new characters (for those who have followed the saga) as we delve into another chapter of Tony’s incredible imagination. Claus and several of the characters from that book reappear, with dapples of their backstory. More science and technology are added, mixed, and mingled.

Science fiction is flawed when a reader gets lost or the plots are convoluted. The Rise of the Miser will whisk you away and time will slip by without you noticing!

My favorite character was a side character, the Sandman. Seriously, when is a toy maker going to create these things?! Actually, Idk if I really want an inanimate object, but he totally should have a book devoted to him. Or something.

This is not a cozy Christmas book. It’s deep. It’s page flipping (I read the book, too!). It’s rivetingly captivating and unimaginably creative beyond words.

There’s light fluff and then there’s mind blowing blizzard effect. Despite the tropical scene, you can’t guess how it ends!

Highly recommend for those who know a book is worth the risk of neglecting real life for a spell.
