Workhaul~Bookhaul

Hey guys it has been awhile since I put up one of these. I have a lot of books to show you! I bought all of these at my job today and only paid $5 ( I get a discount but most of the books at the stores are either $1-$2!!!) So let me know if you have read any of these or not!!!

 

These first two books are awesome!! They are filled with notes, envelopes, and even hidden pictures!!

 The Cottington Archive reluctantly announces that more information about the infamous Lady Cottington has surfaced: a scrapbook compiled by the fairy smasher herself of her correspondence with luminaries such as Queen Victoria, Annie Oakley, Igor Stravinsky, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Andrew Lang, P.T. Barnum, and more. All about fairies, these hilarious letters contain everything from wisdom to suggestions to chastisement. Lady Cottington has made notes in the margins not to mention smashed fairies throughout (will she EVER STOP this nasty habit?!). And the fairies…ah the fairies…they too have done their part, sprinkling magic and mayhem throughout.

Now you, dear reader, hold in your hands the never-before-seen archives of the secret Ghost Society. This incredibly useful guide is your key to making contact with the beyond. So read on . . . but only if you’re ready to find our what lurks on the other side.
The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America
Author Erik Larson imbues the incredible events surrounding the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair with such drama that readers may find themselves checking the book’s categorization to be sure that ‘The Devil in the White City’ is not, in fact, a highly imaginative novel. Larson tells the stories of two men: Daniel H. Burnham, the architect responsible for the fair’s construction, and H.H. Holmes, a serial killer masquerading as a charming doctor.

Burnham’s challenge was immense. In a short period of time, he was forced to overcome the death of his partner and numerous other obstacles to construct the famous “White City” around which the fair was built. His efforts to complete the project, and the fair’s incredible success, are skillfully related along with entertaining appearances by such notables as Buffalo Bill Cody, Susan B. Anthony, Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison.

The activities of the sinister Dr. Holmes, who is believed to be responsible for scores of murders around the time of the fair, are equally remarkable. He devised and erected the World’s Fair Hotel, complete with crematorium and gas chamber, near the fairgrounds and used the event as well as his own charismatic personality to lure victims.

Dragons of a Fallen Sun (Dragonlance: The War of Souls, #1)
Forty years after the destructive Chaos War, dragons have divided the continent among them, but a magical storm will begin to shake up the existing order.
The Outlander
In 1903 a mysterious young woman flees alone across the west, one heart-pounding step ahead of the law. At 19, she has just become a widow–and her husband’s murderer. As bloodhounds track Mary Boulton through the mountains, she is tormented by mad visions and by the knowledge that her two cold-blooded brothers-in-law are hot on her trail, determined to hunt her down in revenge for their brother’s death. Responding to little more than the primitive fight for life, she flees further and further into the wilderness, and into the wilds of her own mind, encountering an unforgettable cast of eccentrics along the way.
Touched By Venom  (Dragon Temple Saga, #1)
The first in an exciting new series, “Touched by Venom” is a powerful debut novel by an author destined to rank among the fantasy genre’s best.
The Mountain's Call (White Magic, #1)
Book 1 in the White Magic Trilogy
Tales are told of the mysterious, powerful Mountain where the gods — powerful beings in the form of white horses — live. But Valeria knows no woman has ever been called to the Mountain. Until she feels a strange pull and answers the call — as a boy…

When her secret is discovered Valeria loses all that she’s won. Her anger and frustration with the Empire might be enough to give the barbarians a way into the Mountain. And so the Empire now depends on the will, the strength and the loyalty of one Rider. A Rider who has been rejected by all but the gods…

Shattered Dance (White Magic, #3)
Book 3 In the White Magic Trilogy

Once again the Aurelian Empire is in danger, and once again Valeria must risk more than her life to save it. With threats from without, including sorcerous attacks against the soon-to-be empress, and pressures from within — the need to continue the dynasty and Kerrec, the father of Valeria’s child, the first choice to do so — Valeria must overcome plots and perils as she struggles to find a place in this world she’s helped to heal.

But her greatest foes have not been vanquished. And they won’t be forgotten or ignored. Nor will the restless roil of magic within Valeria herself. Soon the threat of Unmaking, a danger to all the empire, begins to arise in Valeria’s soul once more. It is subtle, it is powerful, and this time it might win out!

I know what you are thinking where is book 2? Well….the lady that donated them I guess had some kind of rodent issue. So I would of bought it anyways but there were sentences at the bottom of the first couple pages that were eaten….ugh!!

Dragon Champion (Age of Fire #1)


Knight’s fantasy debut concerns a rare, scaleless gray dragon named Auron. Born high in a mountain cave, he witnesses the slaughter of his parents at the hands of a band of dwarves and eventually matures into the last hope for the survival of his kind. Once above ground, Auron learns quickly just how dangerous it is to be a dragon. With dwarves, elves, and humans relentlessly hunting him, Auron finds friendship in the most unlikely of places — but the young dragon’s quest to find others of his kind may not lead him to the answers he hopes to find.

The good news is that Knight has penned a highly entertaining novel with profoundly moving themes that should appeal to fantasy fans of all ages, especially those with a penchant for dragon-powered story lines a la Anne McCaffrey’s Pern and Mercedes Lackey’s Dragon Jousters trilogy (Joust, Alta, and Sanctuary). The bad news is that those who have already read Knight’s brilliantly dark and addictive Vampire Earth novels and are expecting something similar will be sorely disappointed.

Last but not lease the One Rose Trilogy!

The Compass Rose (One Rose Trilogy, #1)

The legends of the Godstruck were just that — legends. Until, in an attempt to defend her people, Captain Kallista Varyl called on the One for aid and was granted abilities such as no one had seen in centuries. Now Kallista has been charged with a new destiny as one of the most powerful women in the land — but her power is useless if it cannot be controlled. Mastering her “Godstruck” abilities is the first step. The next, learning that she cannot unlock the secrets of the Compass Rose and defeat her nation’s enemy alone. And finally she must stop a demon-possessed king . . .

I don’t want to spoil myself so I am going to leave the Goodreads links for the synopsis of these two books underneath them!!
