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 knowabout the story, the really relevant things, not just a plot summary If the answer is YES, then read on T.J Klune has two main writing styles serious Withered Sere, Into This River I Drown and hilarious Tell Me It s Real, The Lightning Struck Heart , with some intersection in between How To Be A Normal Person Wolfsong falls squarely in the serious camp, with little moments of levity, but lots and lots of angst I like T.J Klune in all forms of his writing I like it when he writes his really light hearted stuff, and I like it when he writes his heart breaking stuff This book also had a particular style of writing that T.J Klune often uses, mostly with his heavier stuff There is a lot of repetition of important lines and text, over and over again throughout the story, and a lot of imagery that is very evocative to the reader The style is alsopoetic and less He went to the store and bought chicken Then he went to the park T.J Klune is very deliberate and conscious of his word choice in this story, and it readslike fantasy than most paranormal shifter romances that I m used to That is a good thing, and I m always grateful that T.J shows us different stuff than any other author This book is also, dare I say it, sexy T.J Klune is known to be a lot of things, but a writer of really down and dirty sex scenes yeah, not his bag I m a lover of the sexy parts of romance novels, but I never mind the lack of sex in a T.J Klune book Wolfsong, however, was pretty freakin hot at parts I mean, we only get a couple of scenes here or there, but I was impressed , man I think it will be a pleasant surprise for some readers who aren t expecting T.J to really turn up the heat What excited me most about this book, however, wasn t the really special writing style or the plot line, which was interesting but not anything particularly mind blowing in the world of shifter romance What impressed me was how completely awesome the romance was between Ox and Joe I swear, T.J Klune can write chemistry like no other I often struggle with romance books where there is a lot of telling about the connection between two MCs but no showing SHOW ME THE LOOOOVE I love an EPIC romance, and so many authors give me a friends with benefits vibe That is NOT a problem in this book Ox and Joe have a romance for the ages, and not because of some silly shifter book insta love mates thing, which I see all the time We really get to see Ox and Joe grow and change together, overcoming insurmountable obstacles, and getting stronger andcomplex as a couple Now, on the topic of Ox and Joe as a couple, I did feel a little like, wait, haven t I seen this before with a T.J book The big age gap, the crushes, the childhood friends thing It felt SO familiar Then I realized what it was I had been getting a BIG Tyson and Dominic vibe The Art of Breathing Now, that isn t a bad thing, even a little bit, but it did feel a little familiar to me and it might also to you.Onto a slightly different topic, there are things that happen in this book that made me feel VERY frustrated and mad I was frustrated along with some of the MCs, and one of the things I am most grateful for is that T.J Klune didn t let ANY characters off the hook easily It is one of my biggest pet peeves when a character does something that makes me mad, and the other characters just let it go like nothing ever happened, like they weren t ever upset NO I LOVE that T.J let his characters be resentful and petty and frustrated and emotional and annoyed, just like real people There are a lot of emotions there that really rang true for me I also loved T.J s secondary characters and there are a LOT of them In fact, I had a hard time remembering who was who in the beginning All of those names it all jumbled together By the end I had it sorted out, but I was lost for little pieces at the beginning However, the characters that he does write are very, very strong They all felt well rounded, and I have high hopes that a number of them will be getting their own stories in this series in the future What this book didn t do for me, that it seemed to do with every other reader, was make me cry I sat there not crying like a callous beotch during some really sad scenes I m not sure why I wasn t quite touched on that level but I wasn t It isn t a bad thing, especially considering the emotional wrecking that I went through with Withered Sere, but I just wasn t there Don t get me wrong, I felt a LOT of emotions during this story, but it didn t destroy me I m going to wrap this review up, I swear Basically, all of T.J Klune s fans will love this book It was fabulous and well written, just like we ve all come to expect from T.J., with the added bonus of some sexy times and some light brushes of humor I think shifter book fans, and those who have never tried one, will eat this one up, and I know that this series had some AWESOME things in store for us Copy provided in exchange for an honest review And that right there, ladies and someladies 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, how they become family and eventuallyMates.At 12, Ox s drunken father leaves for good, telling his son that he s dumb as an ox and that people will give you shit all your life Ox never feels like he fits in and that he isn t worth much at all.Then 4 years later, Ox meets a little blond tornado named Joe on the side of the road, who is convinced that Ox is his personal everything At 10 years old, Joe had been kidnapped and broken by a monster He d withdrawn from the world and hadn t spoken a single word for over a year Until he meets a 16 y.o boy who immediately becomes his entire world.The next 7 years are mostly candy canes and pinecones and epic and awesome , with lots of humor and touching moments of family and belonging until Joe s monster returns and TJ gives us a huge dose of wookie cry face Bastard I ll be honest, with as many books as I read, I ve gotten fairly desensitized to sad parts in books and often find myself saying,Shouldn t this be making me cryWell, not this time There in the forest, under a new moon and stars that lied, we sang our pack homeYes, I cried And cried Then cried someLike a goddamn baby.However, worse than the aftermath of the attack is the long separation that follows This part made me want to punch one T.J Klune squarely in his junk, guys Sorry, love you, T.J heh Three years One month Twenty six days That dividing of the pack, and our boys, is awful, but necessary, I suppose It doesn t mean that I liked it, though.During those 3 years, the pack not only heals, mostly, but Ox also comes into his own, becoming what the pack, his pack, needs him to be.When Joe finally returns home, Ox is just so very angry that he doesn t know if he ll ever be able to forgive Joe for abandoning him and his family when they all needed him the most.But TJ isn t a complete fucker, so past hurts are slowly forgiven and, as expected, Ox and Joe do get their hard won HEA.What I truly loved about this book was that, yes, it was a shifter story, but TJ didn t quite adhere to the typical werewolf lore rules found in all of the other shifter stories that I ve read I was in awe of where TJ took Ox s character and what, as a human, he accomplished for the pack What he became for the pack, out of necessity Out of love And out of loss.Yes, there were metric tons of angst and tears in this story, but there was so much love, so much connection between the characters that it all felt like a continual lightning strike to the heart See what I did thereThe decade long story just flowed and every single one of the plot points felt natural and entirely essential There were no drama llamas or contrivances on any of the book s 400 pages Wolfsong is one of TJ s best works to date and is easily one of my all time favorite books.So do not pass go Do not collect 200 Go directly to One Click and get this great 4.75 star book ASAP My ARC copy of the book was provided by the

Updated 10 5 16 Wolfsong is now available in audio I hope you enjoy it.Tjhttp www.audible.com pd Fiction WolUpdated 9 17 16 The audiobook for Wolfsong is in the process of being recorded as we speak After listening toauditions 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 was the only one that got it exactly right It was a little nerve wracking, especially given when I found out he hadn t recorded anything else before, but then I remembered one thing Michael Lesley hadn t either when he was picked for Tell Me It s Real, and look what happened with that So Kirt will be Ox and Joe and all the others And it s looking like Wolfsong will be out in audio by the end of the year I ll let you all know when it s ready Tj Thanks for reading.Buy Links Dreamspinner Noble Romance 5 StarsHe 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 youEvery once in a while a book comes along that you weren t expecting and just blows you away.I d read friends reviews for this and got the sample but the only thing putting me of was that it s quite long and the lack of steam.Well,I started reading it and right from the first page it sucked me in and I was completely captivated by Ox.He s 12 when the book opens,a bit of a loner with no self worth.When he s 16 he notices the house down the lane,which has been empty for a while,is now occupied by a familyThe Bennett s.One day he meets the youngest,10 year old Joe.A little blonde tornado who rocks into his world and won t let go.Little does Ox know that this meeting will change his life forever.I ve read a few shifter books but this is in a different league.I loved the characters.I loved the family and feeling of belonging.There s love,loss,deep connections and bonds that are unbreakable.It s the first book I ve read by this Author and to say I was impressed is an understatement.the writing is simply stunning.Just an amazing,emotional story 5 stars 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 manyEspecially if there are spin offs from this book I know a few characters that need their own storyIt s always the ones who are the quietest who often have the greatest things to say Ox s father left him and his mother when he was 12 Ox was always a little on the quiet side He never really fit in He started working at a local mechanic s shop shortly after and found a group there that got him But it wasn t until the Bennett s came into town that he truly felt that sense of family and belonging On his sixteenth birthday, his life is forever changed when Joe Bennett comes into it Joe s family is a little different, but that s okay with Ox I love how everyone in this story embraces differences There are some fantastic characters in this story Not just the main ones, so many of the secondary ones had a place in my heart Everyone has a purpose to the story As much as I loved them all, none were as special to me as Ox I completely adored him I loved his relationships His relationship with his mom, with Gordo, all his guys at the shop, and everyone in the Bennett family His relationship with Joe is by far the most important I love how it started out as friendship, then grew into so muchJoe saw Ox as the man he really was He wasn t the quiet, awkward boy He was everything SighYou don t get to decide what you re worth because you obviously don t know You don t get to decide that any because you have no fucking idea that you re worth everything This was a long book, but it didn t feel long It was one of those audios that made me want to put down whatever book I was reading so I could focus on listening to it There were lots of moments I smiled, some moments of laughter, tears, and even frustration You will get frustrated a time or two, but it s okay It s all okay at the end The angst was so worth it TJ Klune wrote an outstanding, emotional and extraordinary story when he wrote Wolfsong I can t think of one thing I didn t love about it The narration was fantastic if you like audio I highly recommend this one 5 starsI just want to be wherever you are ONLY

and packship and all the ships in the universe.I marvelled at a witch working in a garage I marvelled at Bennet s pups protecting Ox at school I marvelled at Ox s mother kicking like a bad ass Rico s Spanish Elizabeth s dances at a song of those who stay behind Or are left behind Small displays of genius that are subtle but constant I m sure I didn t catch them all with my conscious mind and that s why I will never be able to write them and pay a proper homage to them But deep inside, I saw them all They were there I can simply sum it up saying how marvelled I was at the affection I felt for everybody here, because every detail is essential, every little word, every casual scene Each one of them was carved on stone Every one of them is there for something Every breath of theirs is useful and noticeable The characters not only keep their seats warm, but you feel the lost of warmth when they disappear, and you feel the warmth when they come back Or the eternal loss when they never do.I
