    Summary

    “For things are made to endure in the Shire, passing from one generation to the next.” – Fellowship of the Ring
    Hobbits are not what the others races believe. Crafted by the Valar and blessed with inherited magics called knacks, Hobbits have been ensuring the peace between the Free Peoples for a long time. No one else knows and Hobbits are content to keep it that way. However, years ago Shire life was disrupted by the marriage of Gerontius Took to Adamanta Chubb, originally known as the dragon Arradeth. Years later Bilbo Baggins is paying the price of being an odd hobbit, having inherited both Took and Baggins knacks along with his grandmother’s blood, and is the only one of her line to also have a dragon form. Now Gandalf the Grey is once again in need of a hobbit for an adventure and Bilbo must decide. Should he accompany the wizard and his group, face a dragon, and risk revealing Shire and family secrets? Or does he abandon his people’s sacred purpose and allow a stubborn king to send part of Middle Earth into war? Not to mention that if Bilbo does go he risks not only his life, but losing his dragon Heart to a band of suicidal dwarves. Either way, the choice of Bilbo Baggins may rule the fate of all Middle Earth.

    Summary

    The Hobbit with a Practical Magic twist. Every hobbit in the Shire knows about the Took Curse - anyone so foolish as to love a member of the Took clan is fated to die. This curse has kept one Bilbo Baggins from engaging in any sort of relationship that might turn romantic, for fear of the Curse taking them as it did his father. He firmly plans on staying alone forever, fortifying his walls with a list of the qualities his perfect mate must possess. However, he never counted on the will of a wizard, a company of dwarves desperate to reclaim their home, or meeting the one being in Middle-Earth who might just fit all of his criteria.

    Summary

    In which Thorin's dæmon reminds him too much of his sister, Bilbo wonders if his dæmon Myrtle should have been named Lobelia instead, and the quest for Erebor just got a lot more complicated.

    Asking Thorin to read a compass was already a lesson in futility, it doesn't help when this particular artifact has a hundred different symbols, none of which point north.
