Paranormal and Fantasy are not my usual reading choices, but, I enjoyed it so much, I wanted more.
Book #2, "Retrieved," did not disappoint, so I grabbed "Recovered," #3 in the Shapeshifters' Library" as soon as it came out.
I can say "blissfully delightful" because I am one of the first to offer a review of "Recovered."
Bliss D. Light is the librarian heroine, and she now proudly tops the list of wonderfully quirky character names.
Again we have a beautiful young librarian shapeshifter, and she is also a beautiful white greyhound.
Bliss and Harry, her boyfriend/werewolf, set out on a dangerous adventure to locate and save an ancient library from destruction by evil werewolf shapeshifters. Harry, of course, is a good werewolf. The bad werewolves are led by Sybilla, Harry's ex-wife, who has corrupt political connections.
During the trip from Ohio to New Mexico Bliss and Harry survive capture, mistreatment, and injury, but their love matches their persistence throughout the journey.
The best part for me (no spoiler here) was what Bliss found in New Mexico, besides the Library of the Ancients.
I recommend you let the author's imagination take you into her world of shapeshifting dogs who have taken on the responsibility of preserving books for mankind. That's a noble enterprise, since books emanate from and encourage our imagination in the real world.
And, with books and dogs, we will be okay.
Change into your dog form, go to Starbarks, order a chai latte and read "Recovered" by Amber Polo.
If your puppies can read, they'll like it, too.
Feeling the effects of persecution first hand is a gentle greyhound librarian Bliss who narrowly escapes capture when her half-wolf friend Harry comes to her rescue. They meet more friends at Starbarks and research the original site of an ancient library, not realising how far the dastardly plan has proceeded. The dogs are not entirely blameless in the feud, of course. They hold werewolves in a prison until they are rehabilitated enough to do something sensible and doglike, against their wolfish natures. Some wolves operate secretly in environmental services, preserving, not destroying. We see the Mississippi landscape and Effigy burial mounds; also Isle Royale National Park. Then a greyhound racing track and dog rescue centre.
Amazing what you learn from this book. All lawyers are werewolves, despite their love of reading legal texts. Or maybe that explains the texts being so impenetrable. In the previous book I read in this series I learnt that werewolves control all the big publishing houses. That accounts for it.
While the trail of clues leading to a lost library didn't fascinate me, I'm not living in America and I can easily see American readers tracing the routes taken and enjoying the history.Read more ›
I could not wait to get to the conclusion of all the books.
I found myself a part of each book. You understand, right? I was busy with warnings to the characters, glad when they were glad, sad when they were sad and absolutely thrilled with the ending.
I will continue to check for Amber Polo books.
You might wonder if Amber needs a middle initial like J. K. Rowling's!
RECOVERED has a National Treasure (love that movie!) vibe with mystery and adventure at it's core. There's a race to discover a long-lost treasure which existence has been disputed, and woven in are themes of redemption and the breaking of stereotypes and racism. Bliss and Harry's relationship is sweet and quite romantic. **more happy sighs**
I will say that there was a plot hole that bugged me quite a bit. How did the redneck werewolf hear about Bliss and Harry's trip when it was a secret with only a few select dogs in the know? This did dig at me quite a bit, but honestly the story is just so good, it's impossible mot to forgive an issue or two.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. See more of my reviews on my blog, Known to Read.
Bliss in the children's librarian at the Shipsfeather Public Library. She is also a dog shifter. A greyhound to be more exact. Her boyfriend Harry a werewolf was in love with Bliss. She had taught him so much. On his way to meet Bliss he hears her calling for help. She was being restrained by what looked like dogcatchers. This leads up to Harry and Bliss going on a quest to save an Lost Library of the ancients from destruction.
This is the third book in the series and can be read as a standalone. I will admit I had trouble getting into the book. So many characters are thrown at you in the beginning. Trying to keep names and shifters straight was hard at first, but once I did I settled into the story nicely. I loved Bliss and Harry, they were so much in love and it was a close relationship. It is action packed and suspense filled. You fall in love with characters, well most of them as you get to know them. The story does wrap up at the end. Wonderful afternoon read. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
