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

My emotions while I wait not so patiently for Carter's book:



When I tell you this book made me cry a lot.. I don't think that is going to come across in a way that you'll understand until you read this book. I shed tears, I wept, I held back sobs. Over and over again. I don't know what it is about this author and his ability to wreck me (us) with his words but oh god. Prepare youself for devastation, for beauty, for heartbreak, for healing, for sadness, for quiet moments.. everything.

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

“That’s the point, I think. We love because we can. We live because we’ve fought too hard to ever stop. And here we are, you and me. Together.

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.
It’s fitting that Wolfsong, my entryway into Green Creek, was the first book I read this decade. It was the start of a profound love for the found family and endless heart within the Be

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.

Brothersong follows the events right after Heartsong, so of course you have to read the previous books in order to re

I’ve been emotionally drained.

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. I could have been bawling by eyes out and at the next page I was hysterically laughing, truly an emotional rollercoaster that left me feeling nothing, because I gave my all to this book, all my emotions stayed there and a piece of me will
So...I'm sitting here after reading this EPIC book and wondering how I'm going to put into words all the emotions I'm currently feeling. This Book. These Characters. This Series. This STORY.

It took me through the wringer and left me hollowed sometimes. But, even at the lowest of lows, when I thought I couldn't read on, this mad genius of an author sprinkled enough heart, love and humour to give me the courage to take just one more step, read one more line and flip one more page till I got to th

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

Are you ready for this? Because I'm not. As you can see from my score, this was not the book for me. But I don't think it's a disaster either. Brothersong has a suitable ending for Green Creek, it’s not a bad ending but not spectacular either. I can calmly say goodbye to the wolves, but there are things I prefer not to think about this book

When I found Green Creek, I found a home, I found a family that loves each other unconditionally and that would give everything for each other, that laughs, suffers, survives and howls together, never letting the world hide their songs. But the end came, and if I felt ready, of course not.

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.

This is the hardest thing I think I’ve ever had to write – and I had to review history textbooks in undergrad and write admission essays for grad school. But not being able to give the last book in the Green Creek series more than 2.5 stars is by far harder than any of that.

Let me start this off with my relationship with the series. I found this series shortly after Heartsong came out. I was in a place where I desperately needed something new in my life. Green Creek (and the Klunatics i

Why was this kind of underwhelming?

I’m actually super sad right now because I don’t have that usual feeling I do after I read a book in this series.

First off, there were a lot of time jumps in this book, and it was hard to tell where we were. The fact that there’s no label or page break to let you know you’ve left the present has always been an issue in this series. I’ll admit it took me out of the story a bit since I had to keep reminding myself where and when we were.

Second, and this is the on

I’m conflicted in how I feel about this book. I can’t tell if my expectations were too high, or… something else? I loved the first 10% of this book and the last 20% of this book, and then the 70% in the middle felt like the most unpleasant kind of roller coaster—like the one that jerks you around too fast and hurts you as it does.

This book upset me. If it wasn’t the final book of Green Creek, I would have given up on reading it before I reached the halfway mark. The

I'm giving this book 5 stars to balance its rating, because the book is not even out, there are no ARCs available, so I really don't understand why someone would give this book such low ratings just out of spite!
What is your problem people?! Like, seriously. At least try and read the book before judging it.

I am very very emo that this series has now come to an end but at least it ended wonderfully.

There really isn't much to say without spoiling stuff, so for now I would say the main relationship in this book is my 2nd fave out of the series. I cried ... like an ugly amount LOL. And TJ Klune loves to cause his readers Pain :)

Definitely going to actually review this one closer to release date!

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

So...that's it, the end/finale of the Green Creek series 😕. Yes, I liked but not loved it; tbh, if anything it was a tad underwhelming...but that's on me, my expectations were probably set a little too high 🙄. As some other reviewers have also said, there wasn't enough Carter/Gavin time in the story for me, and obviously everyone would've gone after TJ with pitchforks if one of the most popular characters in the series had been killed off before their HEA.

Me thinking about the fact that this was the last time I got to see these stupid werewolves

What can I even say you guys? I don’t want to spoil anyone so I just want to tell you that I enjoyed this ending, it was fitting and it gave me closure. This book is from Carter’s POV, I’ve always found him very funny and this self-sacrificing and stubborn man just proved once again how amazing he is! And don’t get me started on Gavin cause I don’t even have the words to express my feelings.

One of the best Finales I’ve ever read. I cried like 32 times. It was heartbreaking and nostalgic and funny and sad and exciting and sweet and everything you expect from a Tj Klune series finale. Gavin and Carter are the best pairing ever. Carter, Kelly, and Joe have the most beautiful relationship between siblings I know. This book was perfect and everything I hoped for.
