About the Series: Princess Tara Chronicles
I originally got a parrot because an old black guy with parrots convinced me it would help me pick up chicks. And I don't mean the poultry kind. Picked out a parrot at this old black guy's bird store here in Seattle that was big, blue, and loud. And a princess. The loudness I didn't learn about until it was too late. But that was the least of my problems. First of all, turns out I didn't actually pick out the parrot. The parrot picked me. Not only was the parrot big, blue, and loud. And a princess. The parrot was a witch. Not a figurative or allegorical witch. A literal witch. A witch of the spell casting kind. The abracadabra kind. A witch with a coffee addiction, and a penchant for pizza and beer. Once I entered the bird store the parrot cast a spell. The kind of spell that caused me to clean out my bank account for a big, loud, blue-feathered witch. The kind of witch that did not abide with girlfriends. The kind of witch that did not abide with not getting her way. The kind of witch that turned out to be my guardian angel and the proverbial albatross around my neck at the same time. A witch named Princess Tara.

Reinventing zombie literature. Michael Ostrogorsky has a delightfully funny and engaging writing style that breathes new life into an old genre. I took the novel to bed and I was just going to read a chapter or two. Ended up staying up half way through the night because I couldn't put the book down. If you like zombie fantasy you'll love this book. Can't wait for Book Two to come out. Will give me something to look forward to this summer.

Michael Ostrogorsky lives in Seattle, Washington with a flock of parrots and a coffee business and apparently a very creative mind to turn out this wild and woolly (or, more appropriately, fast and feathery) yarn about meeting a parrot who turns out to be so much more than he ever imagined (that happens to most of us who turn over our lives to an avian tyrant) and leads him through several apocalyptic turns, all firmly rooted in real-life Seattle. Three, even four dimensions are not enough for him and Princess Tara, who is, of course, just a hyacinth macaw (yeah, sure), as they ramble through Vajrayana Buddhism, shamanism, and even a bit of contemporary politics. I have never tasted his coffee, but after reading this yarn, I say, "I'll have what he's having!"

I first learned of this book on the author's blog. I like fantasy and mythology, plus that the story is set in the Pacific NW, I thought why not? I had to read technical manuals in my job, so now that I am retired I try to only read to be entertained, and I was entertained. This book is much like the shows I like to watch: Bonekickers, the Librarian movies and the Librarians series, the Scorpion series. So Ostrogorsky, when will there be book 2?
