Présentation de l'éditeur

"A fanciful read that remains loyal to its noble principles."
--Kirkus Reviews

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 BLISSFULLY DELIGHTFUL 28 septembre 2013
Par M. Bove - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I had read "Released, The Shapeshifters' Library #1", after enjoying Amber Polo's writing in other genres -Mystery, Romance, and Self-help.
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 **Happy Sigh** 16 décembre 2013
Par Danielle C. Smiley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
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.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. See more of my reviews on my blog, Known to Read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastical fun! 10 avril 2014
Par Susan B. Kottwitz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Do you love the Harry Potter series? Enjoy a bit of fantasy? Love dogs? Then you need to fetch Recovered by Amber Polo. You're in for a real treat!

Recovered is the third book in Polo's Shapeshifters' Library, a delightful dog adventure series. Bibliophiles will be charmed by the "Dewey-speak." Dog lovers will find new beloved canine characters.

I laughed, as well as trembled with fear for Bliss and Harry. I also marveled at the imagination of Polo. It didn't take me long to be fully immersed in her world, even though I'd not read books #1 and #2.

Shapeshifting was new to me and, I confess, I thoroughly enjoyed Recoverd. My curiosity led me to the author's website where I discovered her quiz: How to Tell if Your Dog is a Shapeshifter. Oh, oh. Dogs who are unusually smart or good looking may be dog-shifters. Definitely need to keep an eye on my Golden Retriever, Jeffie, and give him some high quality reading material. Actually, I think he'd enjoy Polo's Recovered.

Truly, I don't want to say much more without giving away the plot. Recovered is a magical experience and so much fun. Books #1 and #2 are now on my reading list.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A definete must read triology! 22 novembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Absolutely wonderful book. In fact the triology is a must get!
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!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Reading 25 octobre 2013
Par LAS Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
As a librarian myself, I really enjoyed this novel about librarians who are also dog shifters. Recovered is a wonderful cozy fantasy novel about Bliss, a new age children's librarian who can shift to become a talking white Greyhound, and Harry, formerly a banker as well as a reformed werewolf who is also half Old English Sheepdog. They are searching for the most valuable library on the planet. They must outwit Harry's ex-wife, Sybilla, and her new cohort, Blaze, both of whom are vicious werewolves bent on destroying all books, all libraries, and especially all dogs and dog shifters.

While Recovered is the third in The Shapeshifters' Library series, it reads just fine as a stand-alone. Each book in the series focuses on a different problem and has a different set of main characters. The books are linked and there are continuing characters, but Bliss, for instance, was a minor character in the first novel and a slightly more important character in the second, but Recovered is her shining moment and shine she does. Bliss is a very well-developed, wonderful heroine, demonstrating both strengths and weaknesses, standing up to the villains even when she is terrified, and in the end demonstrating all the qualities that most of us hope for in a heroine. I also liked Harry, who has lived all his life with werewolves who are vicious, power-hungry individuals, and who ridicule him because he is a half-breed who cannot be like them no matter how hard he tries. He learns, with help from Bliss, that he is a kind soul and in their travels he also learns that not all werewolves are like his parents and his wife. This novel is a coming-of-age story for Harry as well as for Bliss.

Lovers of fantasy, especially book lovers and dog lovers, are sure to be charmed by this unusual, action-packed novel. I can recommend it highly and I can also recommend the rest of the series. I was lucky enough to be able to read all three in order, and while that is certainly not necessary since each book is complete in and of itself, it was, for me at least, the way to go. Amber Polo is a gifted writer and it is a real pleasure to read such a fun and exciting fantasy novel.
