Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.

Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road. The little boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the little boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the little boy belonged to a f

T.J. There will be, but I wouldn't expect it until 2018. I have got some other books to do before I can focus on Mark and Gordo. =D
T.J. Yes, but they won't be the focus, as each subsequent book will deal with another member (or members) of the pack.

5 "Candy Canes and Pine Cones and Epic and Awesome" Stars

description

I originally read this book in preparation for a giveaway over on the blog; but rest assured, said giveaway had NOTHING to do with me giving this bad boy 5 big ones.

If it had sucked, I would have rated it however many "suck" stars it deserved, written a semi-diplomatic "this thing sucked" review...

And then still done my blog-wife duty and shamelessly plugged the giveaway.

But thank fuck I didn't have to do that.

*4.5 stars*

RAWR! T.J. Klune writing a shifter book? I'm soooooo there!

First of all, I'm a total T.J. Klune fan-girl, so when I saw that he was writing a werewolves book, I just about died. I know what you all want to know: does this book deliver? The answer is YES! Do you also want to know more about the story, the really relevant things, not just a plot summary? If the answer is YES, then read on!

Updated 9/17/16:

The audiobook for Wolfsong is in the process of being recorded as we speak. After listening to more auditions than I've had with any previous book, I selected Kirt Graves as the narrator. Never heard of him? That's because this is his first audiobook.

No pressure, right?

But man, did he nail that audition. And what put him over everyone else was his voice for Gordo. He

He said,"There was never anyone else the entire time I was gone.There was never anyone else for me.Because even if you couldn't hear me when I called for you,the howl in my heart was always meant for you."













Every once in a while a book comes along that you weren't expecting and just blows you away.

And that right there, ladies and some more ladies and probably a few gentlemen, is how you write a freaking shifter novel!



This is the tale of the Bennett pack of werewolf shifters, the oldest, most respected pack in the entire country, and how a human boy named Ox first heals the broken family at the end of the lane and then makes them stronger than they'd ever been before.

At the core of the story, though, are Ox Matheson and Joe Bennett. How they meet, how they grow up, together and separately

So I have a friend who recommended this book to me. I put it on my TBR and said I’d read it soon. Then a few weeks later, she said ‘Hey! Have you read this yet?’ Since I was getting badgered (LOL) I looked it up to see if it was on audible. It was, so I knew it was meant to be. I started listening right away. Wolfsong is a story of family, friendship, loyalty and love. It’s my first read by TJ Klune, but I plan to read many more. Especially if there are spin-offs from this book. I kno

But I will always remember the smell of epic and awesome.

Men don’t cry! Ox’s dad taught him that.

Well Ox cried a lot.

He cried during sad moments: when he was twelve and his dad abandoned him and his mother.

He cried during happy moments: when he was fifteen and he got a shirt for present. A shirt that signified that he was now part of the Gordo’s team at the shop where he was working.

And he kept crying when he felt like it until he became twenty-five and he stopped sharing his story with us and the book finished.

EDIT 08/02/2018 : First of all, I won't delete this review. It seems important to me to keep it, because I stand by what I said the first time : ultimately, Joe's parents were abusive. They didn't give Ox a choice. It will never be okay. As much as I can, now, find it in me to accept it, rather than love it, I'm not disowning myself. But. I just read Ravensong and the weirdest thing happened : I fell in love with these characters again. Because perhaps my review didn't make it clear then, but I ...more

If I could convince you to try, Wolfsong would be the one.

Every time I have an extraordinary coffee or salad, I say the same thing to him - If I could convert you, THIS will be the one… My poor darling hubby then shakes his head at me, girds his loins and takes a sip or a bite.

this book follows Ox Matheson as he navigates life and growing up in a small town. at the beginning of the novel we see his father leave and a new family move in "down the lane" which really starts the beginning of Ox's life.

I wish I had the words to adequately explain just how much I loved this book. Right from the start 12 yr old Ox grabbed hold of my heart and he's yet to let go. And I loved it. He squeezed it so tight sometimes it made my face leak. And I loved that too. I wish I could smell him like Joe can. I wish I could smell the epic and the awesome and the candy

Re-read on January 2019 and loved it just as much as I did the first time.
"You gotta smell him and tell me why it's all candy canes and pinecones and epic and awesome."

"And the moon. Ah God, the moon. I wished it was full. Because full moons were my favorite kind of moons. Joe's face came and blocked it away. I decided that was okay, because I loved his face more than I could ever love the moon."

What did I just read? This book was absolutely stunning. The writing, the characters, the story itself, sucks you right in.

What do you do when you own father makes you feel worthless and tells you “You’re gonna get shit, for most of your life.” As any child would, Ox believed his father. Ox grew up thinking he was no one, nothing special. Until the day he met a beautiful boy named Joe, who jumped into his arms and in

Belens Audio Book Review

I can name on one hand and still have fingers left over the number of audiobooks that have felt almost life changing. Wolfsong is one of them.

Maybe it's because Wolfsong is one of my favorite books ever. But, honestly, I think the truly exceptional narration by Kirt Graves is the reason.

Hands down, newcomer voice actor Graves nails everything in Wolfsong. He is superb.

From the character voices, to his pacing, to the emotion infused so perfectly in all the right places...

I’m struggling with words to write a review that would make this book justice. I probably can’t come up with them. This was awesome, OMG, so awesome. From beginning to end, this book captured my heart. I used to be a huge paranormal reader, not sure why I stopped reading paranormal on a regular basis, but I probably need to rectify that. But this book, man, this book, was pure amazingn

It's a flawless book and shows that you can take the fantastic and make it so very human. Ox is so well named, solid and sturdy with everything swirling around him, he is the linchpin that holds everyone together. I thought the supernatural would be what grabbed me but instead it's Ox's humanity and humility and loyalty. I hope there will be more. Wildly recommended.

Audio Review

This audio book-




I've always been iffy on audio books. I really wasn't sure what to expect. I've been on a terrible slump lately and have been re-reading all favorites. This is one of my favorite books of the year- and I thought- let me try the audio. Bloody hell it was awesome! Great narrative! It didn't feel like I listened to 18+ hrs of book. I was completely engrossed in the story. 5 Stars!

P.S. I think I'll listen to a certain unicorn next!

This gave me a whole lot of male on male romance which isn’t something would normally give a first look to, let alone a second. I didn't know it was M/M until I started reading it. That was my own silly fault for not paying attention to the synopsis. But, whatever… I started it and I decided I needed to finish it.



I enjoyed the inner dialogue with Ox at the beginning of the story because it brought out motherly emotion

Boy, does it ever! So many feels, people! While reading this book, my friends Todd, Renee and I chatted a bit about it. Nothing terribly specific, because we were all at different points in the book. Renee finished first and Todd asked her: "So, verdict? Awesome? Heartbreaking? Worth it? Wanna punch TJ in the dick? ;- )" ... My only thought was "all of the above..." Yep, I'm sticking with that.

I just finished Wolfsong. It feels like it took a long time to read. But it wasn't the 400 pages, it was the total immersion into the world TJ Klune built. I am literally stunned speechless at the brilliance of this book.

I will have to use Joe's own words to describe it.

When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid—he didn’t think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video game company, much to his chagrin). Now, over two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only ...more
