In the ruins of Caswell, Maine, Carter Bennett learned the truth of what had been right in front of him the entire time. And then it—he—was gone.

Desperate for answers, Carter takes to the road, leaving family and the safety of his pack behind, all in the name of a man he only knows as a feral wolf. But therein lies the danger: wolves are pack animals, and the longer Carte

This is an extremely difficult review for me to write, so much so that I don't even want to do it. I mean, did being in quarantine during Covid break my brain? How could I not love the final book in the Green Creek series?? I feel like crying right now, and it's not from the emotional ending to Brothersong.

Brothersong has a sea of positive, raving reviews from my friends, and I got warnings about you'll be crying your eyes out!, but I finished the book feeling, well, like nothing muc

“Protect your brothers with everything you have.”

From the moment I started 'Wolfsong', I knew this series would be something special. I've loved every one of these books and I'm sad to see the Green Creek series coming to an end. The Bennett Pack is one of my favorite fictional families. I love the brothers, Elizabeth, and the rest of the family they've found.

Carter Bennett is the oldest of the Bennett brothers and I couldn't wait to get to his and Gavin's story. Cart

Much to my disappointment, I liked, but didn't completely love this looooooong-awaited, final installment of the "Green Creek" series. :- /

I did love Carter's usually-clueless brand of humor and Gavin's ever-present snark and wit, however, when it came down to their feelings, those came across as more best friends than being "truly in love" with one another, for me at least.

Then when the story was trying to elicit deep feelings of nostalgia for all that they'd been through, what had come before,
I can't believe this. I've never disliked a TJ Klune book. Ever. This one has rave reviews everywhere AND is a series that I have really loved. I feel like I know the characters. And yet, here we are. Thanks a lot 2020.

Yeah, it's like this series decided to give itself bangs.

So what was wrong?
It was like reading someone's dream journal for the first part of the book. Rambling, disjointed, but also very repetitive. My desire to read someone's dream journal is probably only above my desire to Don

my heart genuinely hurts having to say “goodbye” to this universe and its characters. i’ve grown attached to everyone (the good ones, to be specific) in this series and i just want more from this world. it’s the way this is the longest book in the series, but it’s not enough for me. 😩

This is the moment I hate the most Goodreads doesn't let me give a half star.

For me 4 star means I was emotional and cried and see myself reading that book again. 5 star means I'm destroyed beyond reapair and will never be the same. It's for the books that changed my life. Which is Wolfsong, the first one in this series. Almost nothing can top that book.

But I'm a character driven reader. I would give 4 stars for literally anything with these characters in it - and written with this magical st

The rusty, broken sound crawled up from his throat, and he was huffing out his nose, but he was smiling, and I understood then what Joe had seen in Ox, why Gordo and Mark were always going to find their way back to each other, why Kelly never stopped searching for Robbie.

My freaking heart man. I swear. Klune is probably the only author who can ruin my heart and put it back together. I'm so sad this series is over.

I am gonna be honest and say that this one didn't blow me away like all the others in the series did.. which is kind of disappointing because Carter has always been my favorite.

I could have done with a bit more Carter and Gavin time. I think there was just too much focus on other characters, like Thomas Bennett and Livingstone.

I was already confused after reading the first page and all the time jumps did not alleviate my confusion.

I am gonna go with 3,5 stars for this one and those are mostly

I find that I lose proper articulation when it comes to my favourite series. The reading experience is special, and often cannot be described in words but rather feelings.

Green Creek is one of my favorite series of all time and TJ Klune is my favorite author so I was really excited about this book. And a bit sad because I’d have to say goodbye to these amazing characters. But mostly excited, I still can’t believe I got to read this. I was dying to have a whole book from a Bennett’s POV and Carter is my favorite Bennett so I was literally in heaven.

I love ravensong. I LOVE ravensong. I've read it like 6 times, I've memorized a lot of quotes from it, Gordo is everything to me, it's one of my favorite books ever. I'm saying this to make it clear that when I say this book is a close second on this series for me, I mean I liked it, a lot, like a lot a lot. Also when I say I hold the Livingstone brothers almost as equals, I think Gavin is so very precious.

When I started reading it, it ruined everything else in my life, cause I couldn't stop. Sl

Sadly, it didn't live up to my expectations and it breaks my heart tbh. This series is one I grew to love (after feeling really conflicted about the first book) but Brothersong left me cold and it makes me want to cry a little bit?

Question : Were Carter and Gavin the MCs of their own story? In my opinion they were not. They were robbed.

Of course I love Joe, Ox, Gordo, Mark, Kelly, Robbie... But come on, they got their own books already! I was never invested in Carter's and Gavin's love story. N

This one was hard to rate. There were parts of the story that I enjoyed so much I didn't want to put it down. But there were also parts that dragged for me to the point that I wanted to start skimming.

I loved Gavin and Carter. I loved their dynamics and their banter. I only wish there was more relationship development between them, because it happens pretty late in the story. I also really liked Gavin's relationship with other characters.

I was charmed and amazed when I read Wolfsong. It will remain one of my top favourite books of all time.
I was riveted and torn apart by Ravensong.
I suffered and rejoiced with the Bennetts and Kelly and Robbie in Heartsong.
And then I waited for a very long time for this final part in the Green Creek saga.

Was it worth that wait?
All in all – yes.

Many things that happened in the past, some of which were never talked about are cleared up and resolved here. People talk with open hearts and

Okay, I never thought I’d say this about a Green Creek book but…. I DID NOT LOVE THIS BOOK.

I loved Wolfsong, it’s one of my all time favorite books ever. And books 2 and 3 I loved. But this book failed to give me the feels that I am accustomed to with a Klune book. I’ve noticed his more recent books don’t fo it for me like his previous books. Maybe it’s just me. There were a few sweet moments and a few really funny ones.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book from the one and only T J Klune, thank you so much, I feel so lucky.

Can I just start by just saying wow? Because honestly WOW. What a ride that was. What an overwhelming experience.

So, here I am once again. It really hit me today when I was going to start writing this review and I saw the "Green Creek #4". This has to be one of the most difficult reviews to write because one, we are talking about my favorite series, and two, this is THE most anticipated book for me this year, so believe me when I say that I'm bleeding right now.

It's now finally Carter's turn to mope, and he does so using a weird mix of hallucination, humorous banter as well as a healthy(?) dose of gay panic.

He goes on a trip, gets lost, then finds his way again courtesy of the mystic moon magic connection (he will be murdering Jessie later on, for coining the term), battles turning omega, then his growing feelings for his mate, but eventually - in true Bennett fashion -things turn out well-enough. Just in time for the final show down..

I finished this one last night, and I am honestly really struggling with the ending. Don't get me wrong, I understand it, but I am not happy about it. I am going to go back at some point and listen to the last few hours, hopefully that will help. For now, I am going with 3.5 stars.

Kirt Graves did a fantastic job as the narrator. Such different voices, from Boston Robbie to Rico and I can't forget Gavin. So sweet!

I'll be back when I can gather my thoughts.

I have so much love for this series! It's been an amazing journey that I hate to see end with Brothersong. I like that this final book includes a lot of the past to remind readers where it all began and how these characters got to this point, but I felt the first half of Brothersong moved too slow. Maybe a little too much rehashing the old while I was anxious to get to the now. I'm happy to say the pace picked up and the second half of this story is amazing . . . an explosive conclusion to one o ...more
