In The Mysterious Abductions, the first novel in the series, Dawn, a serious fox, Tobin, a sweet pangolin and Bismark, the loud mouthed, pint sized sugar glider are nocturnal friends that form a brigade to protect themselves from a blood-thirsty snake.

Together with the help of a wombat, a band of coyotes and many other Nocturnals, Dawn, Tobin and Bismark journey to the depths of the earth in a wacky, high stakes game that determines their survival.
