"My name is Rylee, and I am a Tracker."

When children go missing, and the Humans have no leads, I'm the one they call. I am their last hope in bringing home the lost ones. I salvage what they cannot.

Crossing into Ogre country is dangerous when you're a polite, respectful gal. Which means I already know I'm in for a wild ride, despite the back up I've brought along.

Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.

I’ve been hemming and hawing about this series since the get-go, but Shannon Mayer dropped all of the white noise in BLIND SALVAGE, and at long last got down to the nitty gritty. No new secondaries were added, and some of the plot threads started to make sense. The story also revolved mainly around the heroine for a change, and Rylee got her butt handed to her more than once which is exactly what I’ve been holding out for. Weird I know, however this book is what Urban Fa
I won't lie: I love the Rylee Adamson universe, and when Blind Salvage was released, I gleefully tossed aside the other books in my TBR pile (if you can figuratively send an ebook flying). The "child" that needs saving is a reminder of the harpy battle that brought Eve to Rylee's care, but this time with a twist. There's foreshadowing about a future at stake (har! pardon the pun) for Rylee's long-lost sister... building the kind of tension that makes me think, "ooo!" while reaching into the bowl ...more

After being thoroughly excited over the last book in this series and giving it 5 stars, I'm back to disliking the heroine. She had a blip of reasonable behavior in the last book, but now she's back to bitchy. *sighs*

Not much I can say about the plot because some major things happen. Rylee and O'Shea end up on a salvage (kid rescue) that seems pretty straight forward and ends up being anything but (as per usual in UF, right?). There are major implications for future books so this one is a bit of

Wow. I am in shock over how the events in this book played out. This was nonstop action and there was so much foreboding for Rylee’s future that I’m not sure whether to be excited or to hide from it and pretend the danger lurking isn’t really there. Everything in this book happened for a reason and the danger really upped the ante for this series. No one is safe and this time, Rylee lost some close friends. It was heartbreaking and I know much worse is still to come. Excellent writing, fantastic ...more

3.5 stars

I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this book. There was a lot of senseless death, as well as a few characters brought in for a few pages to add further motivation and plot twists -- something that was not in short supply to begin with. These things just frustrated me and left me feeling quite dejected at the end. I also didn't feel that there was much in the way of character development. Liam seemed to be there purely as someone to boss others around and exert his dominance.
3.5 (still 4 stars given though, it needs a higher rating and more ppl to start reading it).
Yup, I like this series.

Again, the ending left me itching for the next one and as soon as I could I started reading it.
There were things that I didn't expect and, to say that after already reading 4 books in the series, is a really big plus in my book.

My last thoughts about this book were "damn, shit is getting real" just before I realized that there was only 3 minutes left of the audiobook.

I am not a fan of leaving so many things dangling after the biggest action push and plot changes. It feels a lot like a cliff hanger. I wanted to give this one four stars, but that end just felt manipulative.

I enjoyed this series, especially seeing how it intertwined with the Elemental Series. However, I'm not so sure my teenagers would enjoy it. There is a fair amount of language and gore that even I skipped through. In addition to that there are some sex scenes to skip over, and a few crude/lewd moments that I could have done without. I understood the language was a way of distinction with the Trackers in that world, and if it hadn't been for how well done the story was I don't think I would have ...more
What a ride! Rylee's shit creek is getting wider and her paddle is straight up broke.

Rylee has enemies coming from everywhere. On one side, she has the vampire Child Empress wanting her to do her bidding and on the other side, the vampire Faris is forcing her into an impossible situation so she can do his bidding. Her loved ones keep being held hostage and we almost loose more than one of them. Rylee herself is mortally wounded and has to call in a few favors owed. Good thing she actually gained

I seem to be having trouble getting into a lot of my books at the minute, mainly paranormal, which is why it's taken me a week or so to read the 200-odd pages in this, which is ridiculous really when I used to read that in several hours.

I think sometimes a bit too much happens in these books. Rylee and the gang jump from one scenario to another with no breathing space and sometimes they cope so well, it's a bit unrealistic.

I do like the series but I think it's going on hiatus for a bit.

Loved it!

I love these books but why do they always have to end on cliffhangers? I know that I will read anything by Shannon Mayer.

Poor Rylee! One has to wonder what more she can go through! I admire her strength and ability to push on. I cannot wait to see what happens next!

I listed to an audio book and that is my chief complaint. The narrator kept mispronouncing the name of the unicorn foal and it was infuriating. She kept saying 'cal-E-ope' instead of 'cal-I-O-pee' and it would take me out of the story every time. Otherwise I liked it.

Oh my god, the ending! What a shocking finale!

Quick warning, spoilers ahead!

Ahhh Faris the bloody arsehole! Can someone please just kill him already?! Like now?! Rylee really should tell her family what she swore, I mean, not so the world knows but just enough, she cant fight all the battles on her own and maybe Liam could use his mad guardian skills and kill Faris.

Does Faris not know that Rylee has the blood of the lost in her? So maybe hes mistaken that drinking their blood will make him rul

"Blind Savage" reminds us that the bad guys just keep coming when you are Rylee Adamson. When your name is Rylee and you are the tracker foretold in prophecy, there is never a dull moment.

Rylee is contacted by Charlie, her intermediary. He has a new assignment for her that she will soon learn she has no choice but to take because her new client has Eve, the harpy in captivity. Oh, did I mention that her new client is a unicorn and wants Rylee to rescue his fold?

In order to save Eve, R

Where do I begin? This adventure was edge of your seat fantastic! So much action and suspense that kept you going to the end. We said goodbye (for the time being) to some characters and got a deeper glimpse into old friends, I'm looking at you Dox (tear). Rylee never ceases to amaze me with the depth of love and loyalty that she has for those that she cares for. She will do anything to protect them and keep them safe even if it means putting herself in harms way. I've always loved that about her ...more
I picked up the first book in the series, Priceless on a whim a few years ago. It was on sale for $0.79, I liked the cover and the blurb drew me in. I hadn't really read any urban fantasy prior to it but I've always loved fantasy and the idea of a more grown up fantasy grabbed me. And it was perfect. Everything I expected and so much more. I proceeded to demolish the remaining available books and Shannon Mayer has fast become one of my favourite authors. All of the books are full of fast paced, ...more

This one had tears of joy and sorrow...

In this installment Rylee actually does two salvages successfully, but there is a price. Nothing comes easy for our Rylee. Her heart is her greatest strength, even when it's trying to be ripped out, once you are hers there is no limit to how far she will go for you.

The team is all present, however briefly in spots. Liam is all alpha as he deals with his inner problems, adapting to all members of the "crew" and being there for Rylee even when he's not a fan

Rylee and most of her "pack" finally make it back to the USA after fighting off Red Caps and a Giant, barely making it through the veil (portal).
A new assignment of rescuing/retrieving a missing child splits the group and the adventure continues. The child was surprising for me as I expected a little human.
As it turns out, Rylee must save three children, fighting ogres and Rocs and shadows and vampires, spanning from Washington state, Colorado, North Dakota, and London, through rain, water,

Ehhh, good, maybe not quite as good as the previous couple in the series. It felt like they were jumping all over the place, people dying, alliances made, friends becoming enemies, enemies becoming friends, then switching roles again. It remains true to the genre, a nice twist on it, where the author is using more than just werewolves and vampires, lots of epic mythological creatures are included. Love story continues to progress. Guess I'm saying that it's a good middle of the series book that ...more

Wow lots and lots going on in this one! So much so it's hard to review it without spoilers. The prophecies are starting to fall into place and events have been set in motion that I'm not sure Rylee can come through unscathed. I am getting a tad annoyed with Liam and his overprotective ways. He did seem to chill some towards the end of the book and I hope he continues to do so. I have a feeling in the next few books he's going to be forced too. I'm so sad (view spoiler)
While I loved this book, I love this series and I love this author, I felt that although I was there for most of the book but I did get a bit bored? I suppose which isn't a good sign really.

It wasn't that the story wasn't interesting, its just the fact that after the 5th book you wonder how much longer is the same things going to happen again and again.

That being said, I was addicted to reading this book in probably a day, and that is probably because she doesn't maybe Rylee do just one dangerou

I was disappointed with this book. There are some series that get better with each book but I'm not sure this series is one of them. The main character hasn't changed at all, and while I know some people like that, I'm not one of them unfortunately. And after five books her personality is starting to get more than a little abrasive. I'm not quite sure what to make of the end, or the story for this book either. It seems supremely chaotic, like the author was just throwing things around waiting to ...more

This book is packed! Action, death, hope and family abound. I love Rylee, Liam, and Alex. An amazing journey that the trio face to pull the paranormal world together with the help of witches and many other fantastic sups. Twists & turns, wolves, vampires, ogres and so many more amazing happenings. Enemies at every turn & a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. An enjoyable book and series that I would recommend to anyone. ...more

Really..the acting by the seat of your pants is getting old. If you know you might end up getting people you care about hurt, why not take time and evaluate the situation. Also Rylee is suppose to have trust issues, but she's pretty trusting with the wrong guys.

Despite irritating qualities, great action read. Will continue with series because I'm curious where it will go. Hope she matures and accepts her destiny..

Great read. I would recommend this series. I will happily continue to read Rylee's story.

FYI: I thought the hyperlinks on the kindle ebook for every character was a brilliant idea. It's a shame it wasn't reliable. It always sent me to the character's name & his/her relation to Rylee but the "back" portion didn't always work.
