Recovered (The Shapeshifters’ Library – 3) by Amber Polo
Bliss D. Light believes she’s an ordinary children’s librarian…until she grows a tail.
Now her life is filled with more magic than any fairy tale she reads the children at the Shipsfeather Library. Bliss’s newly discovered dog-shifting ability allows her to change into a sleek white Greyhound but leaves her yearning to dig up her heritage and track down the dog-shifters’ lost library.
Her best friend Harry, disgraced werewolf/dog-shifter mix, smitten with Bliss and eager to redeem himself, insists he accompany her. Tailed by the devilish werewolf duo of Harry’s supercilious ex-wife Sybilla and bad boy Blaze, their cross-country quest takes them up ancient mounds and into extreme danger.
Chased by federally-funded dogcatchers, sold to a racetrack, and forced to fight wolf-dogs is no walk in the park. Aided by dog rescue advocates and a bookstore cat, Bliss and Harry never lose sight of their goal—or each other.
Amber Polo’s lifelong love of libraries and dogs led to a fascination with lost ancient libraries and curiosity about why werewolves outnumbered dog-shifters in literature and inspired her urban fantasy series The Shapeshifters Library.
The mystical side of Sedona became the comic paranormal setting for Hearts in the Vortex. One day a plane flew past her office window and she turned her pen to her own airpark backyard and Heads in the Clouds was the result.
Author of award-winning fantasies and Arizona romances, Amber relaxes stressed writers and readers. Relaxing the Writer offers a catalog of suggestions and simple exercises while her calming CDs help (almost) anyone relax and find restful sleep.
After living in seven states, she’s settled in a small Arizona town.
This world is a battle between werewolves and dog shifters. The dog shifters are those that promote reading and education where the werewolves are wild and crave power. This story is about Sybilla Dinzelbacher Romano who is smarting from being defeated by a dog shifter. Sybilla has a plan to increase dog catchers, offer free neutering and spaying, and create dog fighting areas. The plan is to remove the dog from the country.
Bliss D. Light is a librarian that is in for a surprise when she changes into a white greyhound. After her initial surprise, her friend Harry is there to help her. Harry is a reformed werewolf and he is showing Bliss the ropes. Bliss decides to quit being a librarian to hunt for the Library of the Ancients. But this is not going to be an easy archeologist dig. Blis and Harry have the werewolves’ attention and they are going to have one heck of a fight on their hands.
I loved this story. It is so easy to get sucked into this world. I loved the dynamics between the dogs that want to educate and the wolves that are fighting for anarchy, essentially. Bliss was a great strong leader and didn’t let the different situations keep her down.
This is a great story and one that I strongly recommend checking out. This is the third book in the series but it was easy to read without feeling lost. Now I really want to check out the other books in this series to see what I have missed.
I received Recovered from Premier Virtual Author Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
