Publisher's Summary

Sexy bad boy shapeshifter Michael O'Dare grew up on the streets. When government soldiers finally captured and imprisoned him, he became a lab rat and a collared slave, never again allowed to be human. His escape allowed him to return to human form and head for freedom in the Western Territories.
Robert Hamilton-Scott had lived by the code: You're careful, or you're caught for too long to take chances now. The one risk he takes in his carefully controlled life is offering temporary shelter to shifters on the run like Michael.
Robert knows it's definitely not safe to want the sexy renegade he's giving sanctuary to—passion is dangerous for a shapeshifter. As the soldiers close in he must choose between the careful life he's built or life on the run with the man who has captured his heart.


What the Critics Say

“Jacqueline Barbary's latest is a shifter thrill ride…. Barbarry's m/m passion sizzles but it's her intricate shifter lore that makes this story such fun. With solid worldbuilding details, excellent bouts of action and suspense and a surprise at the conclusion, readers will be begging for a sequel." (RT Book Reviews)

Most Helpful

A perfect union that will shape their world

What did you like most about Savage Sanctuary?

I like that there's a backstory to the Shapeshifter story. It's not only that they are being hunted but they are being captured and experimented. There's a frontier, a rebellion for Shapeshifting rights among humans.

I think that the balance between the erotic scenes is just about right. And when the erotic scenes do happen I can easily envisage it by combining the descriptive narrative and the audiobook art.

What other book might you compare Savage Sanctuary to, and why?

I can only compare it to A Howl to the Moon by Nathan Squiers. Only because it is the only Shape-shifting gay fiction I've heard. However this one is doubly as great and has more substance.

Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favourite?

Robert. He's the protagonist and we get to hear about his family and that he cared for his family home and traditions. And in a way you find emotions for him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. But it is easily doable.

Any additional comments?

The narration was clear, understandable and great, even during the eroticism.

Would have loved to hear more about how the frontier progresses.

The story is invigorating.
