In the early 1800s, Nicholas Santa discovered an ancient race of elven.
Short, fat and hairy, they have lived peacefully on the North Pole since the Ice Age but Nicholas is quickly swept into the colony’s first and only fracture. The elven known as the Cold One has divided his people. His name is Jack. And Jack’s tired of hiding. Why should they live in a shrinking ice cap when humans occupy the rest of the world?
It’s just not fair.
There’s no stopping Jack from world domination until Nicholas Santa, the only human to enter the elven colony, joins helium-bladder reindeer, artificially-intelligent snowmen, and a merry band of big-footed elven to bring peace back to the North Pole.
And becomes a legend.

He's a pawn in a larger conflict with no memory of where he was before coming online. His exoskeletal armor forces him into combat. Only when he engages free will does he break out of automode.
And things get weird.
Hunted by the cleaners, he transports to other worlds. It's not till he's captured does he understand what he really is.
And how to truly escape.
This is an introduction to the The Socket Greeny Saga, a heady trip into an alternate universe where a strange and introverted teenager discovers life is more than virtualmode gaming. The world isn't safe.
And all of reality is in danger.
Memories wiped, their bodies each dropped into a tank. Their consciousness thrown into the Maze—a virtual reality where anyone is anything and anywhere. Battles are fought, riddles are solved. To win a lifetime of riches one has to escape the Maze. First, they have to remember who they are.
Some never do.
