Blurb:

Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.

Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road. The little boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the little boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the little boy belonged to a family who had moved into the house at the end of the lane.

Ox was seventeen when he found out the little boy’s secret and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.

Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces.

It’s been three years since that fateful day—and the boy is back. Except now he’s a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

I’m going to keep this one short and to point. To say that this review for Wolfsong has given me a case of “Reviewer’s Block” is putting it mildly. Klune does this to me almost every time, but this book is so different from anything else I’ve read from that I find it extra difficult. The world and characters he created are extraordinary. The emotion that he’s able to evoke with his words is… mind blowing. I’m sure if anyone saw a video of me reading this I’d look crazy. Ugly crying one moment, angry the next, then smiling, crying again. Klune. Nailed. It.

My highlights:

-Characterization.
-Outstanding world building.
-Pace. Effortless. It never felt like a 400-page book. The story just grips you from the beginning and never let’s go.
-The intense connection between Ox and Joe. I swear you could feel it in your heart and your gut as you’re reading.
-The angst. It is Klune and y’all know he’s a masochist and loves to put his characters (and his readers) through the ringer before they get their happy ending. LOL

As far as any negatives- there’s nothing for me to point out. This is best of the best stuff, guys.

Thank you TJ for writing this book. ♥

I’m a romance junkie, who loves when books make her cry from heartbreak and happiness.

A few of my favorite tropes:

-Friends to lovers
-Hurt/comfort/healing
-Age gap
