Tail and Trouble by Victor Catano

Book 1 in the Gabriel and Orson series

When Gabriel’s witch girlfriend doesn’t return from her latest trip, he gets on the road and heads out to find her. Sheila's coven is secretive and distrustful of Gabriel, so the only help he has is Sheila's familiar, a bulldog named Orson, who is psychically linked to both of them.

In Florida, they walk right into an elaborate plan to steal Orson. A mysterious wizard named Yareth is behind the plot, and he may also know where Sheila is.

Gabriel and Orson will have to fight for their lives as they navigate around all the magical roadblocks to force Yareth’s hand. They won’t give up until Sheila is safe.

“Victor Catano had me from page one and his style of writing is fun, filled with dialogue that is priceless and face it, who doesn't love a slobbering, gaseous dog who has a perfect grasp of comedic timing while still being heroic? Mr. Catano has a gem here just waiting to be discovered!”

“Tail and Trouble is absolutely awesome! Omigosh, I laughed so much while reading this book! Tail and Trouble is probably the funniest book I've read in awhile…I would recommend it to any adventure, magic-loving book reader because that's what you'll get when you read Tail and Trouble. I give It five stars!”

“I had a TON of fun reading this. The prose is witty, humorous, and filled with snark. The characters leap off the page–Orson in particular. (I'm sorry, I can't help it–I love me some non-human characters, and Orson is just too adorable not to love!) I definitely recommend to lovers of fantasy, entertaining characters, and unique story-telling. The voice for this read? Top-notch. I can't wait to see what Victor Catano will bring us next!”
