Petra is a PrivateDetective in a DarkerAndEdgier [[Literature/LandOfOz Emerald City]]. After a disastrous night involving destroyed evidence and a nasty confrontation with Lion, Petra is approached by a woman named Dee, who hires her to find her missing fiancé. However, as Petra delves deeper into the case, she becomes engrossed in a hunt for a magical MacGuffin and the struggle for power between the Ozians and the [[BeastFolk Phanfasms]]. As she travels throughout the different lands in Oz, Petra encounters some famous Oz residents, although [[NoDoubtTheYearsHaveChangedMe they're not the same lovable characters you remember]]. At the same time, Petra is also driven by her need to find her little brother, who has been missing and [[DeadLittleBrother presumed dead]] since the Phanfasm War.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreShift: A relatively subtle one, beginning after Chapter 2. As more magic gets used, the story becomes less and less noir-ish. [[spoiler: It even has a genuinely happy ending, which isn't noir-ish at all]].


Added DiffLines:

* OddlySmallOrganization: The Ozian Royal Guard seems to consist entirely of Tik Tok and Jinjur. The Phanfasm nation only seems to have a few people too. It's assumed that there are more characters off-screen.
