Wolfsong by T.J. Klune
I don’t even know where to begin to explain how much I love this book and what a masterpiece it is. Words aren’t enough to describe all the things I felt with this book and give justice to the impact it had on me. Started to reading it I never expected to have my heart ripped in pieces and to fall so madly in love with all the characters and to read this 500 plus page brick of a book feverishly in one sitting, but I did. This magical, beautiful and poetic tale about love and friendship, pack and mates, will make you cry and heal your heart. Give yourself the gift of experiencing the magical and heartfelt world of Green Greek and its werewolf villagers and read this book you too!
In short, Wolfsong is an urban fantasy/paranormal story taking place in the small village of Green Greek somewhere in USA, where the main character Ox gets abandoned by his father as a young kid. To help his mother, Ox starts to work for Gordo’s car repair shop about the same time as the intriguing Bennett family moves into the house next door, with the youngest son, Joe, immediately taking an interest in Ox. But as Ox is about to find out, the world is not what it seems, and there are werewolf and witches, kindness and cruelty, magic and destiny to discover.
Wolfsong is one of those epic family histories that lets us readers follow along for decades and tells the story by letting us readers truly get to know the characters and feel their feelings. The writing style is so unique and perfect, it feels etherial.
“Why do you smell like that? Why is it all candy cones and pinecones and epic and awesome?”
And the characters are so lovable, so vulnerable, so full of flaws that you immediately take them all to your heart.
There is Ox, who’d always been seen as slow and stupid, but who was aimed for greatness. His POV is just one of the best I’ve ever encountered. He sees the world in such a beautiful way, and T J Klune really lets us see and feel all his emotions and his growth from insecure and sad to feeling loved and being able to love wholeheartedly and lead others.
And Joe. Sweet, sweet Joe, who’d been so severely traumatized but who found a home in Ox and dared to start living fully again. Their journey to discover what’s howling between them is so heartwrenching and breathtaking. But also fun! T J Klune has this special humor that I adore.
And all the members of the Bennett family with their amazing bonds and how they run and sing together, Gordo who is suffering from his own broken heart but who nevertheless wraps his love around Ox, the other workers at the shop who are like their own pack and the love and spirit of the village and the nature itself.

we belong to you
i feel your pain, I feel your grief, we have lost, i have lost, but so have you.
I really don’t know how to explain how much I love these characters and their love for each other, the world building and the magical, poetically writing. All I know is that this is a book that hit me straight in the heart and will stay there forever. It will be one of my comfort books that I know I’ll reread it many times onwards.
