Gordo Livingstone never forgot the lessons carved into his skin. Hardened by the betrayal of a pack who left him behind, he sought solace in the garage in his tiny mountain town, vowing never again to involve himself in the affairs of wolves.

It should have been enough.

And it was, until the wolves came back, and with them, Mark Bennett. In the end, they faced the beast toge

T.J. Gordo, and he's definitely not Ox. Gordo is hardened and morally gray, but there is a very specific reason for that.

***Spoiler-Free review, baby!***

*4.5 stars*

It would be hard for me to spoil Ravensong, even if I wanted to, because it rushed by me so quickly that I feel that horrible book let down, that feeling of loss when a great book is over. I'm brushing off the dust thinking, What the hell just happened?

Ravensong pushes forward at such a continuous, pulsing pace that it feels like leaning over the edge of a cliff the entire time. Yo

In english: 4.5 stars. I loved it. Gordo deserves all the love in the world.

En realidad no sé si la puntuación de este libro sea de 4.5 estrellas o 4 estrellas. Debo comenzar diciendo que me gustó muchísimo, pero que no me gustó tanto como Wolfsong. O SEA, es maravilloso, pero la vibra fue mucho más melancólica y oscura, y extrañé esa sensación de amor-y-familia-

Okay folks, I'll just say it up front. I could NOT put this book down. Not that I wanted to. :- P

This was a tale of a love that should have been, mates that should have been, before fate and cruel circumstances stepped in, causing deep feelings of abandonment and betrayal.

Gordo Livingstone hadn't been the witch of the Bennett pack for a very long time when the Bennett's finally returned home to Green Creek. Then, when they finally did, he wanted nothing to do with any of them.

"Wolfsong" was my nr. 1 book for 2016 and I am sure that "Ravensong" will end up being my best read of 2018. It was raw, emotional, heartbreaking and funny. In short it was wonderful...

Pain is a lesson. It teaches you the ways of the world. We must hurt the ones we love in order to make them stronger. To make them better. One day you’ll understand.

War has come at the Bennett pack's doorstep.

If you consider Wolfsong a book about two men who

-have grown up together,
-have mature and realised their capabilities and potentials and

this book was one of my most awaited book for this year. I started reading as soon as i got my hands on this and I just loved it so much.

As the blurb says this book is about Gordo and Mark but it was so much more. While these two were at the middle of everything, this story tells us about the little boy whose mother told him how bad wolves were, whose father told him how strong he was and how the wolves depend on him. This story tells us about the boy who fell in love with the other boy and how

This Green Creek series… I love these books and this pack so much! After reading Wolfsong last year, I could not wait for this book. The moment it went on audio, I made time to listen. It was a long book, but once again, the story hooked me and it didn’t feel long at all. Honestly, I didn’t want it to end.

Gordo and Mark’s story spans 25-30ish years. It starts out when they’re just boys, and goes to the present from when they’re both around 40. There story is complex and has many up

I’m not really into shifter stories but I can’t get enough of this series! And you should know before this series I read one of the author’s books and I disliked the writing (I’m not a big fan of his writing style) but yet again I couldn’t put this one down! So good! So many feelings, all the emotions and you can feel them! It will make you exhausted emotionally but in a good way! It was so good to see Ox and Joe again (all candy canes and

“The funny thing about hate is the razor-thin line that separates it from something else entirely.”

This is the story of Gordo and Mark, characters we met and fell in love with in Wolfsong (the book before this one and yes, you need to read them in order). Gordo and Mark loved each other, but something happened and Gordo sent Mark away. Now years later, Gordo is again the witch of the wolf pack Mark is in, but the two of them cannot seem to work out the past
~4.5 stars~

A highly anticipated sequel that didn't leave me disappointed.

"I don't believe your promises anymore."

Gordo doesn't believe in much. His magic. Ox. His friends who help him run the garage.

Anything else just hurts too much. When you've been burned over and over, who could blame him?

His heartbreak was palpable, and I admit my eyes leaked a bit while learning the real history of Gordo and Mark......and Gordo and Thomas......and Gordo and his parents.

Wow. I thought Gordo was a wee bi

I can’t tell you how much I loved Wolfsong, so I was nervous I wouldn’t like Ravensong as much. There was no need for me to worry, I adored Ravensong and the poetic writing sucked me into the story from the very beginning.

Ravensong is the story about Gordo and Mark. Don’t worry though, there is plenty of Joe and Ox as well as the rest of the Bennett clan. Of course there are a few changes within the clan, including Team Human, but their fierce loyalty and love of family is always present, espec

I didn’t think it was possible for TJ Klune to top Wolfsong but he did. I’m in awe of this man’s talent cause damn can he write. Ravensong was everything and so much more. I was entertained thoroughly. I felt the story and its characters. I was singing and howling along with them. Pack Love Mate. Ravensong is not just Gordo and Mark’s story. This is the story of the Bennett Pack and this pack encompasses it all. Strength, loyalty, courage and love. These people in the Bennett pack are survivors ...more
Three facts about the Green Creek wolf pack, brought to you by the letter D:

1) Daddy issues galore.
2) Dumber than a box of rocks.
3) Drama queens extraordinaire.

And D1 + D2 + D3 = DNF

NOTE: Ravensong does not stand alone. Definitely read Wolfsong first, and if it has been awhile, I'd suggest doing a reread.


"Pain is a lesson"

Gordo Livingston is bitter and angry. To truly understand the depth of his anger, you first have to understand his fears and his past. Gordo felt betrayed, abandoned, alone. By his parents, by his pack, by his mate, and he's determined to never let it happen again. There is such a history between Gordo and Mark, a
I think this one was better than the first in the series.
The second-chance plotline was on point, it was nerve wracking and it was FUN!
I'm so happy that we had more humour in this one, compared to Wolfsong, since this was quite dark and long, and I needed those breaks from the heartache and the seriousness.

I totally understand why Mr. Klune is becoming 'hot shit' in major publishing houses, and I am really REALLY excited for the next book in this series!

After reading, and before finding the time to write a real review : I'm so happy, okay? SO happy I gave Ravensong a chance. It was, really, the book I didn't know I needed, but oh hell, how I did.

4.5 stars, RTC.

Prereview : About this time last year I read Wolfsong and it triggered a strong reaction in me, which is not unheard of, but, you know, isn't what I'd call usual either.

The more I read, the hardest it is to really piss me off, to break my heart in a million pieces. So I shouldn't want t

To say it in Gordo's words: fuckin' werewolves. Loved it as much as Wolfsong, if not more so. TJ is brilliant and Kirt Graves's narration was too. I think that says it all. :)

"I'm not scared of much. But I think I'm scared of this. What it could mean. What I could become. Who I could forget."

Before diving into this one I felt the need to re-read Wolfsong. I loved that one just as much as I did the first time, but then I got afraid no one can compete with Ox and Joe.
Well now let me tell you how hard I fell for Gordo and Mark.

To be honest, I think there's no need to re-read Wolfsong before this one, because Ravensong t

Once, there was a wolf.
He had sat with his back against a tree.
His bare feet were in the grass.
The boy leaned forward and kissed the wolf.
And knew then that nothing would ever be the same."



I knew this would happen. I did. I'd read Ravensong KNOWING TJ was going to rip my heart to shreds, yet I was excited for it

I took me a long time to read this book. I kept putting it down and coming back to it. I did finally finish but my thoughts and feelings about it are a big jumbled mess. There were things I didn't like about it. There were things I loved about it. It made me laugh, it made me cry. It made me happy, sad and angry. Unfortunately, it also made me bored in a few places. So, maybe I'll come back and write a coherent review if things gel in my mind. For now, just after finishing it, it felt l

I think I love this book even more than Wolfsong... So much was taken from Gordo and at so young an age. Getting to finally see him heal and be with Mark was just awesome. I could once again gush about TJ's incredible writing, but I would just be repeating myself. The author is beyond talented and although reading his books is an emotional roller coaster it is one I will be glad to ride again and again!

An extraordinary book.
And as I laid in my couch I started it, feeling like it will be amazing because the first part was perfect.
The beginning was hard because it explained so much. The hardest parts of the first book. The pain, the hurt, the anger and above all, this LOVE.

It was good...

It's my fault. See, I read Wolfsong but I listened to Ravensong. I'm not saying that Ravensong was bad it's just that I didn't feel as sucked in as I was with Wolfsong. At first, this was because I was struggling to keep pace with the pack. There's time-jumping, trying to remember who was who and what was what. Then, once I gained my bearings, I was a bit discombobulated that a character I loved in Wolfsong made me want to scream in Ravensong. I was enjoying the journey but my thre
