Extinction

Book One in the Refuge Shifters Series

Jack McBain has spent most of his life trying to track a myth. Jack's grand-father used to tell stories about the Beothuk Indians, a tribe supposedly wiped out by European settlers. According to the legend the Beothuk were not wiped out, but were granted the ability to change into wolves by their god. His search has led him to Spirit Mountain in Yellowstone Park, where he finally comes face to face with the person he's been searching for-sort of.
 
Toby has been hiding from humans all his life. He's been alone since the death of his parents, but he's always wanted to have someone special in his life. His first encounter with Jack tells him who that special someone could be. Now he has to claim his mate, avoid the killers that have been stalking him all his life, and protect what is left of the Beothuk people from his brother's cruel tyrrany. Simple right?
 
I loved this book, it's definitely a different take on how shape shifters came to be. Ms Lynne has a unique style of writing that is entertaining and refreshing. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this series.

Professor of Environmental Science/Wildlife studies at UNLV, Jack McBain has spent his adult life trying to track a legend overheard during his youth. Born and raised in the Canadian Province of Newfoundland, Jack remembers his grandparents telling stories of a race of people eradicated by European settlers in 1829. According to the legend, the Beothuk people didn?t die out as first thought, but were transformed into wolf shifters.

When Newfoundland wolves began to appear in great numbers, the European settlers began killing them under the guise of population control. In 1910, the last of the Newfoundland wolves was shot, making them one of the few extinct species of wolves in the world.

Following spotty leads, Jack begins to track what he believes are Beothuk/Newfoundland shifter wolves. His search leads him to the Lake Mead National Recreational Area outside of Las Vegas. There, on Spirit Mountain, he finally comes face to face with not only the shifter he?s been looking for, but the man of his dreams he didn?t know he needed.
