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 storybundle.com, 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.
You can read more about the books here, and make sure to click on each cover for a synopsis, reviews and preview of each book!
The Tower and the Fox by Tim Susman
The Tower and the Fox is the […] novel I've been waiting for him to write for years, and it has been worth the wait."– Dogpatch Press
The Hundred Halls - Books 1-3 by Thomas K. Carpenter
"I just found my new book to talk peoples ears off about! I could not put this book down and have told all of my friends to get a copy to read. I can't wait for the rest of the series!!! It was a fun refreshing take on magic and creatures. The characters are so captivating. I am glad to see a magic related series that is more female based and has more of the "Supernatural" feel to it. I have been a fan of Thomas K. Carpenter for a while now, but this book is my favorite so far! Keep them coming!"– Reader review
Down the Dragon Hole by Morgon Newquist
Dragon + danger = delicious! To what can I liken this enchanting, exciting, heart-warming, tale? It's like eating a really top notch pie—it begins with an airy, melt-in-the-mouth pastry beginning as we meet the main characters in a humourous situation involving a library and a dragon; and then we find the delicious filling, as an unlikely and yet entirely believable partnership forms between two mismatched personalities who find themselves facing even greater dangers than the aforementioned dragon.– Reader review
Lies and Prophecy by Marie Brennan
"Lies and Prophecy successfully combines college hijinks with magical intrigue and battles for autonomy [...] I would recommend Lies and Prophecy to Harry Potter fans who are looking for something more grown up as well as to fans of The Magicians who want something less grimdark."– In Bed With Books
The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin by L. Jagi Lamplighter
"Lamplighter introduces many imaginative elements in her world that will delight..."– VOYA
The Daughters of Zeus Trilogy by Kristine Grayson
"Grayson's clever, humor-tinged writing is absolutely delightful."– Booklist
Flame - The Dragonmasters Trilogy Book 1 by Katie Cross
1."What an adventure!! It is such an enjoyable book. The story is full of twists and turns that are written in such a lovely way, you can feel you are right there with the Spence sisters, the dragons and all that goes on in their world!! Wonderful story!!"– Reader review
Black Magic Academy & White Magic Academy by Emily Martha Sorensen
"Every so often, I get the pleasure of reading a new book that is simply a delight from start to finish. Black Magic Academy by Emily Martha Sorensen is just such a book. Now, whenever I compare a book to Harry Potter, I get in a little trouble with the author. One author actually took to her Facebook page complaining that yet another reviewer compared her book to Harry Potter. For some reason, authors seem to take a comparison to a billion dollar book/movie enterprise as a bit of an insult. So, here's hoping that the author takes no offense when I say, with Black Magic Academy, Sorensen has given readers what Harry Potter should have been!"– Amazon review
Schooled in Magic by Christopher G. Nuttall
"The bottom line is that this is a great book."– Amazon review

Zero DRM. There's no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don't believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don't believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, please have them buy one for themselves. With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
Easy delivery. It's super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.
