Grubb, age twelve (or thereabouts), has never known anything beyond his miserable existence as a chimney sweep, paid only in insults and abuse by his cruel master.
All of that changes the day he stows away in the coach belonging to a mysterious guest at the inn that he is tasked with cleaning.

There's no time for Grubb to settle into his new role as apprentice to the strange, secretive Mr. Grim. When the Odditorium comes under attack, Grubb is whisked off on a perilous adventure. Only he can prevent the Odditorium's magic from falling into evil hands-and his new family from suffering a terrible fate.
Grubb knows he's no hero. He's just a chimney sweep. But armed with only his courage and wits, Grubb will confront the life-or-death battle he alone is destined to fight. [close]Giveaway dates: Aug 25 - Sep 06, 20141 copy available, 200 people requestingCountries available: US

All of these things lead Danny to the discovery that he is the heir of the legendary Arthur Pendragon and the linchpin in a pact established between man and dragon centuries ago. Now, rogue dragons threaten that pact and the peace that comes with it. They aim to reopen the portal through which they originally came to Earth in order to bring back a rebel dragon army. It's up to Danny to learn to channel the power that is Excalibur and, with his new friends, prevent the portal from being opened. [close]

This book was amazing! I love stories that create a whole new kind of world that you never expected to discover. The author did an excellent job of drawing you into Phoenix's story and making you wonder where you were going to be taken on this adventure. You are surprised and shocked as you discover this strange world that Phoenix had no idea about, and you revel as he discovers all about magic and what really happened to his dad.

The Rockman Chronicles is a book series unlike anything you have ever read before. This purposely dreadful plunge into the depths of science fiction adventure offers a hilarious satirical portrayal of current genre tropes and literary shortcomings. More importantly, this series provides a window directly into the narcissistic and complicated mind of the author who writes it. Ron Jockman’s tale is a high speed trainwreck of intergalactic proportions, resulting in awkward metaphors, uncreative encounters, and every chance taken to promote his obnoxious philosophies.
An entire planet is going to die and Earth’s mightiest hero, John Rockman, isn’t going to take that lying down, but he could if he wanted to. He once single-handedly won the Plaxion Wars of 2433 AD with both legs broken just above the femurs. The few surviving Plaxions still recall the hairy mass of man-terror crawling across the battlefield, a laser pistol in his mouth, death in his eyes and blood in his urine (an unfortunate side-effect to having his pelvis mangled.)
With the help of his delicate Femaiel cohort, Maria Ozone, John Rockman must deliver precious cargo to the citizens of planet Pergos in order to save their lives, but the evil Prince Pilletus of planet Galactar has other plans for our hairy hero and his curvaceous comrade.
Join Rockman on his biggest adventure yet! Gasp in awe as he uncovers a Blort-Blart cheating ring! Pump your fists in glee as he kicks an invisible assassin robot in the chest with his 5-inch stiletto heels! Gag on your honor as he brutally kills an old blind man! And scream a primal scream as John Rockman takes on the largest gladiator trials in the Universe in: John Rockman and the Trials of Galactar!

He got his magic back, but he can only control it through the use of technology and an app called #Magic.
Colby has spent years subjected to the torment of a bully who at one time was his best friend. His biggest enemy is himself, not his bully or the forces who seek him out. He has a new best friend now however, and together they are beginning the exploration of a lifetime. They are rediscovering a magic that has been waiting for eons to be released. But the magic is not the only thing that has been waiting.
While Colby explores his new abilities and a strange little blue man, who assigns himself teacher and guide, an old war begins anew. Magic came to this Earth before man recorded his history, and the bringers of that magic want nothing more than to regain access to it, by whatever means necessary.
Colby learns about his family line and the twisted history that has thrust him into the center of a battle born of hatred and ignorance, something he knows all too well. He will fight the power, fight the bullies, and most of all… fight himself. [close]

Lenny is good at teaching physics. He is good at fixing things, making friends, and not attracting attention. He is good at being a medium, helping spirits pass beyond the Veil. But as a vampire incapable of violence, he has always been a bit of a joke.
All it takes is a drink in a hotel bar, a stumble into the wrong place at the wrong time, to run him afoul of Sebastian Duran, a lunatic who controls other people’s minds better than he can control his own. Torn away from everything he knows, trapped and starved and under constant mental assault, Lenny’s best hope is Kim Reed, a wizard tasked with bringing down Duran. Kim cannot believe that Lenny is evil, but neither can she hide him, and while she battles for his freedom, Lenny is forced to confront his own potential for monstrosity. [close]

The story centers on Princess Olive, one of two daughters born to the King and Queen of Rosemount. The Princesses are the last of the Winnowwood, an enchanted people with dominion over nature and who can communicate with animals and exercise various other magical powers. But with each use of their magic, their physical appearances change, making the Winnowwood a people as ugly as they are extraordinary.
And Olive is quite ugly. Her face is covered in bumps and warts, each of which, it turns out, came about because she used her magic for a greater good. Nonetheless, she is appalling to look at. Her father, King Michael, despises her and is humiliated by her appearance. He keeps her locked in the castle so that her looks do not embarrass him in public.
When a war breaks out between Rosemount and the neighboring kingdom of Alganoun, King Michael is captured by enemy forces. A truce is drawn, and the Kings agree to a permanent unification of their kingdoms by the marriage of their children. King Michael sends a message to his wife, asking her to send their beautiful daughter, Roseline, to marry the prince of Alganoun, who is by no means handsome.
But Roseline refuses. She is already smitten with another man whose beauty equals hers. Eager to break free from a life of confinement, desperate to escape her father’s cruelty, and brave enough to face a new world in order to save her kingdom, Olive volunteers to go in Roseline’s place.
Reminding us that there is more to a person than meets the eye, The Ugly Princess is a fairytale like no other.
