"Retrieved" by Amber Polo {Book Review}


Dog-shifters once again face the book-burning werewolves of Shipsfeather in this charming second installment of The Shapeshifters’ Library series.

Godiva Anglesey, Chocolate Labrador, and the ruggedly handsome English Mastiff Cynerik are forced to team up against power-hungry werewolves when Cynerik discovers an ancient Ohio mound that may hold answers to their shifter history. Knowing the mound’s secrets could benefit the dog-shifters in the ongoing contest for power, ambitious werewolf pack Alpha Sybilla challenges timid Godiva to a battle for the territory. Already faced with a malicious book-worm infestation and a censorship threat to ban all anthropomorphic books in her library, Godiva, who has no interest in battling anyone, must turn from running her small town library to train for a challenge she believes she has no chance of winning. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, Godiva’s mother announces that family tradition dictates that Godiva must be married by Summer Solstice… to a Druid. Godiva doesn’t even know any Druids.

Godiva wants to run her library, retrieve books for library patrons, and keep people happy. She’s no hero. She doesn’t have what it takes to face down werewolves or save the world. Cynerik, however, believes differently. Together they must defeat the werewolves, save the town and its library, protect the most important archeological discovery in dog-shifter history… and, just maybe, find love along the way.

About the Author, Amber Polo:

As a quirky librarian I love bringing to my books a look into another world with a little humor and a story to keep pages turning. My new series "The Shapeshifters' Library" features a library full of librarians and dog-shifters trying to stay one step ahead of the book-burning werewolves.
Book One and "Released" Book Two "Retrieved" Available in eformat and print. "Recovered" is due in 2013.

I'm also really good at relaxing people, so my latest book Contains all the tips a librarian/yoga teacher wants writers and readers to know. I wrote "Relaxing the Writer - Guidebook to the Writer's High" to help everyone to sits to read and writes and recorded my relaxation CDs "Relaxing the Writer Relaxation" and "Relaxing the Writer Hand Meditation" to offer a way to learn to release stress!

I've written 2 romance novels, one with a paranormal twist a "Romancing Rebecca" and another "Flying Free" about living on an airpark (as I do) and a couple of shorts.
