"A fantastic novel" --Midwest Book Review

"From the award-winning author of THE SHAPESHIFTERS' LIBRARY series, RELEASED and RETRIEVED, comes the long awaited third installment!"

Bliss D. Light was just an ordinary children's librarian until one day she discovered she could grow a tail. Now her life is filled with more magic than any of the fairy tales she tells the children who gather at her feet at the Shipsfeather library. Like many of the other residents of Shipsfeather, Ohio, Bliss is a dogshifter, and her newly discovered ability to change from human form into that of a sleek white greyhound has left her yearning to know more about her true heritage. The answer to all her questions, she is certain, lies with the dogshifters' long lost Library of the Ancients and, undeterred by the fact that thousands before her have searched, she sets out to find it.

Accompanied by her best friend Harry, a disgraced werewolf/dogshifter mongrel, and hotly pursued by the evil werewolf team of Sybilla and Blaze, Bliss's quest takes her across the sacred sites and ancient mounds of the American Southwest. Though kidnapped by dogcatchers, sold into racetrack slavery and forced to fight wolf dogs to survive, Harry and Bliss never lose sight of their goal-or each other. Because the only thing more important than finding the ancient lost treasure might just be preserving what they already have found: an unlikely love that could be the first step toward bringing two ancient enemy races together.

My Review:

A novel like RECOVERED elicits a happy sigh from me.  This is the type of book you want to curl up to read by the fire with a cup of hot tea on a rainy day.  It's exciting, engrossing and has the sweetest of romances.  I've really enjoyed all of the Shapeshiters' Library books, but RECOVERED is my favorite!

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.

Purchase RECOVERED: Amazon (ebook or paperback) or  Barnes & Noble (paperback)
