Product Description

Product Description

At her mother’s urgent deathbed plea, Abby Teller enrolls at the Berkeley College of Magical Arts and Crafts to learn Real Magic. To support herself through school, she signs on as the superintendent of the Garden of Abracadabra, a mysterious magical apartment building on campus. She discovers that all her tenants are witches, wizards, shapeshifters, vampires, or some other stripe of supernatural entity.

On her first day in Berkeley, she stumbles upon a supernatural multiple murder scene. Compelled into a dangerous murder investigation, Abby is torn between her ex-fiance, Daniel Stern, an enigmatic FBI agent, Jack Kovac, and the seductive Prince Lastor in the penthouse who may be a suspect.

She will discover the first secrets of an ancient and ongoing battle between Humanity and Demonic Realms, uncover mysteries of her own troubled past, and learn that the lessons of Real Magic may spell the difference between her own life or death.

Volume 1 includes Part 1, Life's Journey, Part 2, In Dark Woods, and Part 3, The Right Road.

“So refreshing! This is Stephanie Plum in the world of Harry Potter”

From the author of Summer of Love, A Time Travel (A Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book), The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (A New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book), Celestial Girl (A Lily Modjeska Mystery), and Strange Ladies: 7 Stories.

More About the Author

I'm totally delighted to announce the launch of THE GARDEN OF ABRACADABRA, the advance Kindle ebook of the 2013 print edition of Book 1 of the Abracadabra Series. If you enjoy Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, Laurell K. Hamilton, Neil Gaiman, and, yes, Harry Potter, please give this a try!

I'm also happy to announce several new publications on Kindle: SUMMER OF LOVE, A TIME TRAVEL and the sequel, THE GILDED AGE, A TIME TRAVEL, both from previously published works; TESLA, A WORTHY OF HIS TIME, A SCREENPLAY, which is presently being read by L.A. producers; U F uh-O, A SCI FI COMEDY, a novella adapted from my science fiction comedy screenplay which is now FREE from January 9, 2012 to April 9, 2012 as a Kindle Select Title in the Lending Library; and EON'S KISS, a paranormal romance written under the pen name, Suzanna Moore. THE QUESTER TRILOGY, based on my cyberpunk classics, ARACHNE and CYBERWEB, as well as two collections of stories are forthcoming.

A graduate of the University of Michigan School of Literature, Sciences, and the Arts and the University of Michigan Law School, I'm the author of two dozen stories, two screenplays, and nine novels, including SUMMER OF LOVE, a San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book and Philip K. Dick Award finalist, and THE GOLDEN NINETIES, a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book.

I published my first story, "ARACHNE," in Omni and have since published short fiction in magazines and anthologies worldwide. My Omni story, "TOMORROW'S CHILD," is in active development at Universal Studios.

I live in the San Francisco Bay area with my husband, the acclaimed artist and jeweler, Tom Robinson, and am a huge fan of cats and hummingbirds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Enjoyable Urban Fantasy 12 Jan. 2012
By D. Pflaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very entertaining novel- sort of a down-to-earth Harry Potter with a modern adult woman in the lead. Even as Abby has to deal with mundane concerns like college and running the apartment complex she works at, she is surrounded by supernatural elements and mysteries that she is more than capable of taking on. Although this book is just the first in a series, it ties up the first "episode" while still leaving some story threads for upcoming books. I'm looking forward to finding out more.
