Welcome to the YAMAZING RACE where you can win MGnificent prizes at the best book blog hop ever - featuring over 50 debut authors and prize packs featuring ARCs, gift certificates, swag, and more! If you haven’t yet been to the Apocalypsies website, please click HERE to start from the beginning and read the complete rules. Now on to the race!

My official stop is my WEBSITE, but stopping here at my blog works, too. And by visiting my blog, you'll have a chance to win an extra prize: a Rock of Ivanore T-shirt! So, here goes:

The annual Great Quest is about to be announced in Quendel, a task that will determine the future of Marcus and the other boys from the village who are coming of age. The wizard Zyll commands them to find the Rock of Ivanore, but he doesn’t tell them what the Rock is exactly or where it can be found. Marcus must reach deep within himself to develop new powers of magic and find the strength to survive the wild lands and fierce enemies he encounters as he searches for the illusive Rock. If he succeeds, he will live a life of honor; if he fails, he will live a life of menial labor in shame. With more twists and turns than a labyrinth, and a story in which nothing is at it seems, this tale of deception and discovery keeps readers in suspense until the end.

Okay, now don't forget all that juicy info! And remember, you must complete ALL FIVE quizzes to be eligible for a prize pack.But before you go –

  1. Good luck on the hop. I'm getting more exciting about Rock of Ivanore every time I see a post.

  2. Thanks for the extra giveaway, as well as the entire race!


  3. Sounds interesting! I will have to remember to keep Ivanore in mind when ordering for next year. Glad to see it's a fantasy that's not super long. So many of the kiddos try but give up on the 400 pagers.

    1. Thanks Ms. O. Are you a teacher? I have to agree. While a huge # of kids love the massive tomes, others struggle to get through even a few pages. My son was like that. While all his peers were reading HP and Eragon (which I loved!) he could hardly get through Magic Treehouse (which I also love). So I tried to write something that would keep his attention through the entire story (lots of action) and not be overwhelmingly long. Today, I'm happy to say, my son is 14 and is a voracious reader. Thanks for your comment.
