Publisher's Summary

If smartphones and GPS rule the world, why am I hunting a magic compass to save the planet?

Austin detective Maggie Parker has seen some weird things in her day, but finding a surly gnome rooting through her garage beats all. Her world is about to be turned upside down in a frantic search for four Elementals. 

Not three, not five...but four. Why is it always four? 

Each one has an artifact that can keep the Earth humming along, but they need her to unite them. But the forces against her might get there first. 

A compass, a telescope, and untapped magic are her only tools. 

Will she join forces with an army of gnomes? Can she get the hang of even a simple spell to defend herself?

Find the compass save the world

Yes, Maggie Parker our illustrious robbery detective for the Austin PD is a peabrain. A peabrain is that smaller brain buried at the top of your spine along the back of a person’s neck. It is undetected by science and holds the innate magic humans possess. If you think that is something, you need to read the story to see how mother earth is described, it is truly unique.

Maggie’s life has taken a drastic change, which began when her garage was burglarized, and she met Bernie a gnome.
She became a major player to save earth. Her magic became active and she acquired a few gnomes as friends. They help her to retrieve the compass and learn how to use her magic. There is the evil khashgar, those tall dirty bastards. Gnomes really hate the khashgars not only because they are taller, but because their plan would destroy the earth. There is snark, bubbles, pot laced brownies, magic and much more. Enjoy the new world and delightful characters presented by Martha Carr and Michael Anderle

Not really a whole book

An engaging premise but not a whole lot happens, this feels like BARELY a first chapter - mostly establishing characters and world. There’s no there’s no build, no climax, not even a hook. I thought my download had a glitch when the ‘thank you for listening’ message popped up (I checked - it doesn’t)

Find the Compass, Save the World!

Maggie Parker is a robbery detective for the Austin PD and some strange man has the audacity to break into her garage and try to steal her grandfather's tool box!

Turns out, the strange man is Bernie, a Huldu gnome who is a mechanic that keeps the 'ship' running along with all the other Huldu's. The 'ship' being the planet earth...... Oh and humans have peabrains - a very small, magical brain that lies dormant until woken up and then the human possesses magical powers.

This is the start of Maggie and Bernie's adventures in trying to get the compass back after it was stolen by the baddies so that they can save the ship.

Great storyline and well narrated.
