BOOK OF THE DAY: Released (The Shapeshifters' Library) by Amber Polo

by Amber Polo


Once long ago the Shipsfeather Academy was a training ground for an ancient race of dog-shifters whose mission was to protect the world’s knowledge. A powerful curse sealed these librarians in the basement of their building and gave the control of the town to a pack of book-burning werewolves.

Librarian Liberty Cutter watches in horror as the town’s public library goes up in flames and plans to re-establish the library in the abandoned Shipsfeather Academy building. Chronus, the Old English Sheepdog headmaster of the academy and leader of the dog-shifters, knows he must make some changes to continue to keep his pack safe. But even if he could persuade Liberty to believe in a talking sheepdog, how far can she be trusted? And will she ever be able to care for him as a man. He has to try, because Liberty Cutter and her staff of zany librarians may hold the key to the dog-shifters’ freedom…and the future of the town.

The Shapeshifters’ Library  - A charming new cozy urban fantasy series that will have dog lovers and book lovers alike howling out loud with delight. Book 2 “Retrieved” due Nov. 26th!


A love of books drew Amber Polo into a career as a librarian. A greater love turned her into a writer.

The Shapeshifters' Library series is an urban fantasy filled with books, librarians and dogs and a library everyone will love.

The mystical side of Sedona, AZ became the paranormal setting for her first novel Romancing Rebecca. One day a plane flew past her office window and she turned her pen to her own airpark backyard and Flying Free was the result. In addition to her two novels and short romantic fiction, she is proud of her self-produced , Relaxation One Breath at a Time a CD that uses her voice to teach relaxation to calm your body and mind and/or help you fall asleep.

Relaxing the Writer: Guidebook to the Writer's High offers hundreds of tips to help writers and readers relax.

Sample her writing and see why Midwest Book Review called her work "quirky" and "profound" (is that profoundly quirky or quirkily profound?) check out excerpts and her award-winning essay Trick or Treat.

After living in seven states, she happily calls a small town in Arizona home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shapeshifter Dogs RULE! July 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
WOW, what a book! As an author of Paranormal Romances involving all types of Shapeshifters, I am always on the look-out for books that are similar. Ms. Polo's newest, "RELEASED, The Shapeshifters Library" is one of the most unique and FUN books I've read in a long time! I have to admit I wish I'd thought of such a fantastic idea and wrote it first!

From page one, you're drawn into a fantasy world that overlaps into the real world and makes this a page turner --- because you want to see what happens next. Liberty, the Librarian heroine, is an endearing character you become involved with immediately. She has a passion for all things librarian, and a heroine's heart that will see her through a chain of events that not only threaten everything she holds dear, but even her own life is at stake. Her counter-part, the hero Chronus is......a sheepdog. Yep. A Shapeshifter sheep dog! I LOVE THIS!

Discovering that an entire community of shapeshifting dogs live in the basement of the Library is alot easier for Libby to accept than the fact that most of the town are Shifters in some form too. And the bad guys? They're book-burning Werewolves led by a Pack Leader that defines the word DANGEROUS.

Fast paced events start happening. The Werewolves will stop at nothing to finally destroy the shapeshifting dogs (who have been trapped in the Library by a curse centuries old) and gain control. We're talking danger, fires, and even death from these bad guys. They give the name "Werewolf" a whole new meaning!

But don't think this is a scary book! Its fast paced, tense, full of mystery, surprises, and even romance. But it also has alot of humor ---priceless humor that makes a reader think: "LOL--that was great!" Ms. Polo uses her wonderful writing skills to bring to life every shifter, every human, add lots of humor and mystery, and make this an unique story that won't be forgotten.
A HIGH RECOMMEND! Dog lovers, do yourself a favor and grab this book! You won't regret it! And for those who love shapeshifters, romance, mystery,'ll LOVE this book too!
