Publisher's Summary

The sixth standalone novel in the Claus Universe. The holiday legends you never heard growing up.

This is Ryder’s last stop.

It’s a half million acre ranch and home to 40 teenagers. It’s also home to a famous and eccentric philanthropist with a peculiar obsession with the North Pole. His name is Billy “Big Game” Sinterklaas. But shortly after Ryder arrives, secret messages begin leading him to what’s really happening. Billy Big Game believes that Santa Claus is real.

This is the year he proves it.

He says there’s one Christmas story no one has ever heard, the legend of the biggest and baddest reindeer of them all, the one who leads the sleigh and protects the herd. But Billy Big Game doesn’t want to discover the last reindeer. He wants to capture him.

That’s why he brought Ryder to the ranch.

A strange and unique Holiday story

Ronin is not your average holiday story. The unusual story features a strange orphanage with its own reality TV show and an owner obsessed with tracking down Santa. It's all a bit twisted and unpredictable. The book is YA appropriate, but probably better suited for older kids, teens, and adults. This book is part of a series, but I have not read or listened to any of the other books yet.

The narrator of the audiobook has a clear strong voice, but I found his voice to be a little distracting at times.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Disappointed in this title

Bertauski is one of my favorite writers. The detail he puts into each book and story captures my heart and hooks me so deeply that I’m a bit sad when a book ends. However, Ronin was just shallow and lacked depth for me. It felt like a book that was thrown together quickly to meet a deadline. Very disappointing!!!!
