Wolfsong is a wonderful novel about finding home and filling out the shape destiny has given you.

Kia is such an original character - I was expecting your typical 'alpha' werewolf but Calhoun proved me wrong! He is very much like an ordinary boy but with hidden leadership qualities deep within that he learnt to use and show when going from this realm to the 'werewolf' realm.

The world-building may have been slightly off (I don't see how another realm can be only filled with two werewolf clans an

This book is a beautiful story about a boy, Kia, who was tricked into the Otherside, a realm where people have no technology and have two forms, human and wolf. It was revealed to Kia there that his father, Kitane, was actually the King of the pack, Altehrei. This makes Kia Silverwind the unwilling and unaware half-blood Prince of Altehrei. That was not the reason he was kidnapped, though. Kia was told that his father had gone missing a few months back, leaving him the new King of Altehrei. Kia ...more

I found this book on Wattpad and I am so glad I decided to read it. After reading the synopsis, I truly could not wait to get reading. As soon as my eyes found the words I couldn't stop. I read the whole book, loving it all the way, and was dissPointed when it ended. I then begun searching for a second one. Once I found wolfspirit I read up to chapter 10 and then the author had said that the rest of the book was unavailable on wattpad...I could've cried! This has got to be one of the most intri ...more
4.5 stars. I absolutely loved this book! The characters were amazing, the plot intriguing, and the world building was beautiful.
The book was about a boy, Kia, who learns that he is a werewolf and is set to lead his pack in their realm, the Otherside. The premise sounds a little strange, but I love paranormal so I jumped in. (Read it on wattpad!) boy am I happy I did. Kia was an amazing character and I was rooting for him the entire time. His romance with Arii was sweet, and I loved the absence
I honestly don't really know what to say, but Wolfsong has been one of the best- if not the best-werewolf book I've read in a long time. Kadilynn Calhoun managed get get me hooked after merely a few pages, and was able to create something different without taking the cliche turn werewolf books often take.

I actually found Wolfsong through a writing and reading website, Wattpad, and immediately fell in love with the synopsis--I finished the book in barely two days. Once I was done with it, I mov
At first I was wary about reading yet another werewolf story, and I was sure that it was just going to be another cliche romance novel about alphas, but after reading the first few chapters I became intrigued with this book and kept reading.

The author did a very good job with going into detail about the mythology and background of the story which I loved to read as it gave me a greater understanding if the story.

The one thing I didn't really like was the fact that the story was very short and I
I found this book to be quite addicting. Kia, the lead protagonist started as a typical teenager, lacking knowledge about the otherworld, but developed into a true leader worth respecting. He suddenly had to make choices beyond just himself, and he had a constant struggle of being forced to leave his old life behind. Arii, a werewolf who first introduced herself to Kia, was a very headstrong character. It was noticeable very early on that she would do anything for both Kia and her brother Al.

I'm a sucker for all things Werewolf and when this came as a recommendation on Wattpad, I had to check it out. I absolutely adored this book. Kai was amazing and I immediately fell in love with him Arri. Kodilynn Calhoun has the most descriptive and beautiful writing talent that I have ever seen. I was immediately sucked into her world and characters. I've already purchased the sequal for my Kindle and I can't wait to dive in. I have read a lot of Werewolf novels and Otherside just might become ...more
My personal view on this book, is amazing and is very enticing. It's so unique and the whole plot of it is genius,as it's not you're typical 'werewolf' book, you find amongst the wattpad region. All the characters are very loveable even Skita with her charming ways yet very heroic but I won't spoil it for you readers. The book was beautifully written and it's a book that can definitely up lift you're spirits, and make you smile. The book over all is very heart warming and lovely to read, I thoro ...more

An original story with a twist I have never read of before. I have found this on wattpad and it was deffinitely a one-of-a-kind book that i have ever read. Having read so many werewolf stories, i got tired with the same story plot and this book really gave me a very different side on werewolf stories. The story is in the male lead's perspective, compared to the usual female heroine taking the lead,this is definitely a fresh new story that got me out of my boredom. I would definitely recommend it ...more

I discovered Wolfsong on Wattpad (a place indie writers go to post their stories) and it was my first werewolf story. I was not disappointed. The characters are original and realistic, and it even has an LGBT (which was a nice touch, I must say).

The only bad part about this story (which isn't really that big of a deal) is that only the Altehrei and the Rashti were living in the Otherside, which is supposed to be a completely different world.But overall, I really, really enjoyed it. 4.8 werewolve
Wolfsong was one of the best books I have ever read. I loved the diversity in the names, like you had Arii instead of a common name like Sarah. I also liked that this book had the idea of the Otherside, most werewolf stories don't have things like that so yours was set apart from them. Another thing that I liked about Wolfsong is that it had good plot twists and it kept me in suspense wanting to read more. Overall I think Wolfsong was a fantastically written book and I would recommend it to othe ...more
I loved WolfSong! I'll be honest, when I first started this up I figured it would be poorly written and uninteresting, as quite a few stories on WattPad(where I found it) of this genre are. I was very pleasantly surprised to find it had excellent writing, a heart tugging plot line, and amazing characters! I grew to love all the characters immensely because, come on, how can you not love shy little Aliel, hyper Arii, and protective Kai. I found the plot-line to be unique and I adore it so much!

I read this on Wattpad!! (what can I say about that site, I love it!!)
Anyway, found it quite by accident while I was looking for some werewolf stories (I know I should be ashamed but right now I'm hooked with them...).
Sooo, this story is about a young -normal as he thinks he is- teen returning one day from school to see a stray wolf-dog in a alley that he has been taking care of (his mother doesn't like dogs in their home) when a wolf attacks him. That's how Kia finds out that he is a werewolf.

Ever wonder if or when you had the nerve to go and talk to a girl, and when you do she likes you back and makes you tongue tied. For Kia having a crush on a girl is normal for any teenager, but when sad girl turns into a wolf normal doesn't even begin to cover it. Especially when she says he needs to return with her and become alpha of the pack yeah life just got a little weird for Kia, to think today he thought would be nice because he was going to talk to a girl. Boy was he wrong, never the id ...more

This book is about book was amazing. im grateful to have had the privilege to read it on wattpad. Basically this book is about a teenager ( Kia'la) who is very awkward and shy. That is until one day he finds about his wolf-dog can transform into A GIRL. BUT NOT JUST ANY GIRL, beautiful and strong Ari. the attraction is strong. But one thing kia'la doesn't know is hes the last heir to the alpha and without in alpha in the other side the pack is in great danger. Ari was sent to kia to seduce him a ...more
Like I said, Wolfsong is kind of predictable which started off as the protagonist not knowing that he is a mythical creature and an Alpha or the last descendant of a Royalty. Then by a situation out of his control he was turned into the being he didn't imagine or think as possible. He resisted to accept the fact that he is already one of them until later on, he grew to love everything that has become of him that he can no longer imagine life otherwise. After he met a beautiful girl who was suppo ...more
This is a good story about a young boy who lost his father when he was young, and then learns the reason why and his try heritage. He learns that he is part werewolf and he is heir to the throne in a different dimension. The book is about him learning to fit into this new role of his life and accepting who he supposed to be while trying to fight a war against another pack of wolves. I really did enjoy the characters in this book and the storyline and the whole premise of another dimension where ...more
I am crazy about everything supernatural, there is just something about it that thrills me. Add in some adventure, action, mystery, romance, supernatural creatures and royalty, and that makes the perfect recipe for a well adored book for me.
I happened by Wolfsong by chance while browsing for some good paranormal and werewolf stories on Wattpad and upon reading the epilogue, decided to give it a try. Well! I was seriously not disappointed!
The journey with Kia, his life through his eyes made me f
this book......awesome, it gave everything a book needs to give to achieve favourite book level. With compelling characters, an epic storyline, just the right amount of funny and a beautiful romance, I can honestly say there was nothing this book did wrong except leave you panting for the sequel. The writing style was beautiful, making the story flow and giving it an amazing quality, READ IT you won't regret it, I certainly didn't. !!!!!!!
I can't remember when I started the book all I know is that it's one of the few that I will read over and over again. The story line is very unique as well as the names of the characters and that's what got me. It's one of those books you stumble upon, question it at first and then fall in love with the book itself. I'm a huge book worm and this is one of the books that I will gladly boast about until everyone gets annoyed with me.

This book is absolutely amazing! The journey we go on with Kia is grilling and exciting and I could not get enough of if! This book has the perfect mix between action and romance, mystery and adventure and through in some super-natural beings and this book and all of a sudden you have a perfect recipe for a good read! i was just stumbling throughout watt pad when i found this and read it in about two days! i could not stop! Kia just takes everything in stride and soon that shy and nervous boy he ...more

This book is an awesome tale of an seemingly ordinary boy who becomes absolutely extraordinary. It reminds me of all the dreams I had when I was little of being whisked off to a magical place where my wildest imaginings became my reality. I ripped through Wolfsong in a day, and spend the next week wishing I had drawn it out longer because my book hangover was so bad. The novel has great character development, especially on the part of Kia, and a lovely tale of romance. If you have a lull in your ...more

Wolf song is a wonderful story. It's has action, romance, and a bit to mystery. And it definitely has a twist to it all. I would say for others to read if they like a supernatural romance. This book seriously will knock your socks off at the end. Thank You Kodilynn Calhoun for allowing the book to stay in Wattpad. I had a wonderful time reading it.
I really enjoyed this book! I loved Calhoun's concept of having a wolf and a human mixed into one character while still showing the subtle differences between the two personalities. I recommend everyone to read this novel. Its strengths are definitely the construction of characters.
Lucy Ryder
If you need a break from our world as we know it... If you need a place where you can pretend nothing is real anymore... If you just want to read... Wolfsong is THE book for you. It is a romance, paranormal, ad an adventure all in one! I lived reading this book and I didn't want to stop!
I received a complimentary copy of Wolfsong in exchange for my honest review of it.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Kia'la is a half-human, half-wolf heir to the throne of his father's people. He has absolutely no idea who he is. That is until, shy and awkward Kia meets Arii. She has come to Kia's world, the human world, to seduce him to the come home with her. He doesn't want to leave, so Arii returns to her world. The next day, after receiving a text from Arii, Kia gets kidnapped and brought to

I absolutely love this book, it hits home on a lot of the details of finding that certain person that makes being in this galaxy worth anything. It's very relate able for teens, while also mixing in the fantastic world (Called 'The Otherworld') of werewolves into it.

If I am writing this, then I must be finished with the book. That makes me sad. This was one of those books that I wished would go on and on. I loved it!

I don't read many books about werewolves. But I am glad I read this one. This was a complimentary copy from BookRooster dot com. I am so glad I asked to give it a try. There is romance and adventure yet real life of home and family. Kodilynn Calhoun combined it all and came up with a plausible story. A story that makes you feel good, even in the

Kodilynn Calhoun is a 25-year-old gal from Indiana. She’s been writing seriously for over 12 years; her first real novel was a 300-page fantasy monster with little plot and plenty of randomosity. Today, she’s mostly a writer of YA paranormals and is a sucker for a good love story and the fantastic: werewolves, shifters, incubi, and gargoyles? You name it, she probably writes it (and hopes you like ...more
