QUICK HIT - For fans of Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles, be warned that this in no way resembles book 3 of the series. Furthermore, it breaks all the rules and follows a style all its own. To some, this may prove to be a distraction. It’s certainly a unique experience, but one I would encourage avid Rothfuss fans to read as well as anyone interested in a fascinating character study.

Be Your Own Duck Commander Boxed Set Giveaway

Be Your Own Duck Commander Boxed Set

Is there any better way to ring in the holidays than with bearded men and ducks? We’re celebrating the holidays here at Life is Story with a number of giveaways (and this is just one of two Duck Dynasty themed giveaways…check back later for the next one) and we’ve got a special one here for you (or your kids).

The Duck Dynasty boxed set includes all four Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style novels from John Luke Robertson and Travis Thrasher.

#1 – Willie’s Redneck Time Machine – Join Willie on a time-traveling adventure with multiple endings both plausible, weird, and wacky.

#2 – Phil and the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-Ca – The Duck Commander patriarch does battle with things that go bump in the night.

#3 – Si in Space – Never taking itself too seriously and continually breaking the fourth wall, Uncle Si’s space travels are my favorite in the series.

#4 – Jase and the Deadliest Hunt – Some animals are bigger than ducks.
