The Hercynian Forest Series
Panda Fowler is a good-natured tax preparer
who loves her wife Mitzi, their cat Brutus, their
friends, and her routine. She's a born skeptic who's
practical and down to earth. Mitzi Fowler is a free-spirited
travel agent who keeps Panda from being a total stick
in the mud. She believes in fun and fantasy and isn't
shy about her love of adventure or her belief in the
possibility of magic and supernatural beings.
One of their best friends, curator of the Merryville
Museum, brings internationally-acclaimed Fiona Castlebaum
to unleash a performance piece called Floodlight.
But when Fiona goes off script, Mitzi and Panda have
their lives turned upside down. And then a creature
from the Hercynian Forest arrives with a cryptic message
for Panda. Worst of all, Mitzi goes missing.
Will Panda have the courage to face a frightening
world that she never believed in so she can find and
retrieve her mate? Will Mitzi survive the ordeals
she encounters? The suspense gradually increases,
but so does the humor as Panda and friends challenge
the magical world, battle powerful villains, and struggle
to get Mitzi back.
"I love me some wacky plots and characters,
and between the thrills and chills in Floodlight,
this book has a lot of humorous stuff in it. Besides,
there are elves and griffins and dwarves--oh, my!--who
could ask for anything more? If you like the funny
urban fantasies of Charlaine Harris or Jim Butcher's
Dresden Files, you'll likely enjoy Birmingham's new
