Party of Five
Pirates, a fiery magical bunny, rastafari elves and two princesses in exile, plus a retired thief, an aspiring bard, and an awkward sorcerer alongside flying ships, off-worlders and dimensional portals.
How do all these mix together? They usually don't but when they do, they tend to explode.
"Party of Five" is the first book in a series of fantasy novellas by the same name.
