Book 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Enjoyable Urban Fantasy January 12, 2012
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.
