C.S. Lewis meets CSI…when Amazon Bestselling author Michael Angel presents a brand new fantasy series: ‘Fantasy & Forensics’.
She’s the LAPD’s best corpse-kicker. Dayna Chrissie, LAPD’s leading Crime Scene Analyst, enjoys nothing more than finding the one clue that can solve a crime. The day she finds a golden medallion on a body that's been dumped at a downtown construction site, she doesn't think it’s that out of the ordinary. Until that medallion transports her to the magical world of Andeluvia.
She must find a killer in time to stop a war. Dayna discovers that she's been summoned to solve the murder of the realm's king, before war breaks out between Andeluvia and the Centaur Kingdom. Trouble is, no one seems to want peace when warfare offers chances for riches and glory – so Dayna ends up with a team of cast-offs: a centaur wizard with father issues, a brash griffin warrior, and the world’s unluckiest magical deer.
And the trail leads where she least expects it…back home! When the trail of evidence brings Dayna and her new friends back from Andeluvia to Los Angeles, she must use all of her forensic knowledge in order to solve the case.
The price of failure? A war that will kill millions and devastate Andeluvia.
Hope she works best under pressure.

Dayna Chrissie is the lead Crime Scene Analyst for the LAPD, and from the perspective of a former crime scene analyst, I found myself breaking out in laughter at just how apt our first introduction to Dayna is. Michael Angel really “gets it.” CSI may be “sexy” to the television watching public – but...
There is a sense of awe and wonder when you read a book, especially so when that book takes you somewhere special. That place being the author's very personal imagination. Something that you can almost tangibly feel, the effort, the emotion, their fears, their desires; whatever the mind can come up ...
