Book Description

Professor of Environmental Science/Wildlife studies at UNLV, Jack McBain has spent his adult life trying to track a legend overheard during his youth. Born and raised in the Canadian Province of Newfoundland, Jack remembers his grandparents telling stories of a race of people eradicated by European settlers in 1829. According to the legend, the Beothuk people didn’t die out as first thought, but were transformed into wolf shifters.

When Newfoundland wolves began to appear in great numbers, the European settlers began killing them under the guise of population control. In 1910, the last of the Newfoundland wolves was shot, making them one of the few extinct species of wolves in the world.

Following spotty leads, Jack begins to track what he believes are Beothuk/Newfoundland shifter wolves. His search leads him to the Lake Mead National Recreational Area outside of Las Vegas. There, on Spirit Mountain, he finally comes face to face with not only the shifter he’s been looking for, but the man of his dreams he didn’t know he needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extinction (Refuge Shifters 1) by Carol Lynne February 8, 2010
By Elisa
Format:Kindle Edition
In the first book of the Refuge Shifters series, Carol Lynne sets the basis for the development of the entire story. She borrows the ancient legends that see shifters as favourite sons of Mother Nature and descendants of the old Native Americans; she also continues in the myth that homos exuals are the favourites among the favourites since Mother Nature gave them two spirits, so to be able to understand the needs of their people. The consequence is that, having more female genes than a normal man, the men who are destined to lead the shifter people are not "manly" men, they are small and fragile, almost feminine.

It's strange to read of how Toby, the little wolf / man chosen to lead the werewolves, almost goes in heat when he meets his fated mate, Jack. Jack is not a shifter, he is human, and at the beginning of the story I was expecting from him to be the omega man in the couple. And instead, with wonder, I found out that Toby is almost androgynous, and fragile; he needs protection, in everything, and not mating with Jack cause him pain, like he was in heat. So much the author pushes on the heat button, that I was almost expecting for Toby to change s ex and becoming a female wolf able to give birth...

Maybe in this Carol Lynne plays a bit with the yaoi elements: Toby whimpers, cocks his head like a curious puppy, and has temper tantrums... quite the imagine of the half man / half animal characters so loved in the yaoi manga. From what I understand, the series will evolve in a series of connected episodes where those two spirits feminine male will find the strong Alpha who will protect them. They all will go to live in a reserve, an high tech place in the Canadian woods called Refuge.

It will be interesting to notice how the author will resolve the issue of their extinction, I have the feelings that she will mix male/male stories with ménages, to resolve the problem in the most "natural" way...

2.0 out of 5 stars Extinction May 7, 2010
By M. Nix
Format:Kindle Edition
Professor Jack McBain is trying to prove the existence of the Beothuck shifter wolves. When he finally finds one, he gets more than he bargained for. Toby is a beautiful Beothuck wolf and Jack's mate. With the help of a friend who is more than he seems, Toby and Jack must fight The Hunters before they kill all of the shifters.

Extinction is an erotic fable with a paranormal twist. Unfortunately, the world in Extinction is a shallow one. The emotion is heavily scripted and the characterization is weak. Extinction has convenient circumstances and predictable pairs. I would not recommend this story.

2.0 out of 5 stars A screechng halt February 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not far into this story, I got majorly squicked when Toby, while in wolf form and with Jack looking on, performed - well, let's just say, an intimate oral act on himself that has no doubt been tried by many a teen-age boy possessing the flexibility and horniness needed to try it in human form. I'm sure this has been depicted in other shifter stories, but ick! it really turned me off and I couldn't get past it to the rest of the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars End of the line for me. January 9, 2015
By MinxFan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not nearly what I expected from a Carol Lynne book. I almost always give her books 5 stars, but this one just fell short for me. Now I know because it is book 1 in the series, it tends to have more set up and therefore not as much of a love story for me. I like the characters and the different take on the shifters. I enjoyed the story behind the Hunters and the Refuge. Unfortunately I won't be reading more of the series as it seems they are all ménage books which I hate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Undeveloped characters March 6, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a gay man, I was hoping for a great were book that encompassed great characters and a dynamic story. Unfortunately, this book was essentially gay porn. The characters were undeveloped and unbelievable. I didn't get past the first sex scene. I was sorely disappointed....

More About the Author

This is the section of the website where you learn about me. Well, to be honest, I'm completely boring. I spend my days juggling two young children and my writing career. You're just as likely to either catch me writing a steamy love scene or scrubbing jelly out of the carpet.

When I'm not writing, I'm usually busy planning for the next GayRomLit Retreat or spending time with my family at the lake.

I love to hear from readers. You can contact me at or visit my websites at: or

Here are some unusual facts about me:

I drink gallons of coffee every day, but I much prefer instant. I catch all kinds of flack for this from my family and friends. Even though I only drink instant, I am very picky about which brand I buy. It must be Taster's Choice or nothing.

I love country music, but can't stand to have music playing in my house. Therefore, I don't even own a stereo or radio of any kind. I listen to my tunes as I'm driving around town and that's enough for me.

I like to refer to myself as underheight instead of overweight. I'm just sure that if I could add another six or seven inches to my short 5'2 frame, I'd be much thinner. Therefore, it's not that I overeat, it's just that I stopped growing.

I enjoy the Hallmark commercials more than I enjoy the Hallmark movies.

Well, sorry folks, that's about all I've got for you. Maybe someday soon I'll have something really exciting to put on this page, but for now, this is me in a nutshell.
