The Magic School Bundle - Curated by Thomas K. Carpenter

It's that time of year when kids across the world are returning to school from their winter breaks. While they'll be forced to suffer through the mundane acquisition of knowledge without threat of mystical annihilation, you don't have to, because you can spend your time reading stories about magical schools that exist in this world—and many others!

I'm curating a Magic School bundle on, a terrific collection of ten novels (actually more than than ten because some of them are their own bundles!) by bestselling authors and rising stars. As always, at StoryBundle, you name your own price—whatever you feel the books are worth, and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity.

The Magic School bundle contains the first three books of my Hundred Halls Universe which has 28 books and counting to enjoy. Trials of Magic, Web of Lies, and Alchemy of Souls are the books included in this StoryBundle—which follow two sisters, Aurie and Pi, as they try to survive the only magical university in the world called The Hundred Halls.

The bundle also includes from prolific and award winning writers like Kristine Grayson, Tim Susman, Marie Brennan, Katie Cross, Christopher Nuttall, Morgon Newquist, L. Jagi Lamplighter, and Emily Martha Sorensen. Learn more about them and how they came to be in this bundle by reading the notes on each individual book. – Thomas K. Carpenter
