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 boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the 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 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.
Wolfsong is the first book I've ever read by TJ Klune, and I am so glad that I gave it a chance. I am a huge fan of wolf shifter fantasy and a lot of my friends were recommending it, so I figured why not. It took me a really long time to get into the way it was written. It's really hard to explain how it was but I guess the best way I can think of is choppy. A lot of what is being written is what is going on in Ox's head and he thinks about a mile a minute. And let's face it, he's a bit awkward. lol!
This book really put me through all of the feels; it made me smile, it broke my heart, and it made me angry and hopeful at times. I felt as if there were a couple areas of the story that really dragged on or were really repetitive, but I still really enjoyed it overall.
The romance in this book takes a REALLY long time to get going....probably because when Ox and Joe first meet, Joe is only 10 years old and Ox is a teenager. That sounds a little weird, but nothing creepy every happens, I swear! lol! There are a couple steamy scenes in this one, but not many. So if you are going into this one looking for a bunch of steamy scenes then this probably isn't the book for you. This is much more plot focused and suspenseful. I really fell in love with the whole Bennett family and can't wait to read the next book in the series. But I just saw somewhere that it won't be out until 2018...ugghhh! I'm so not a patient person. This book does not end in a cliffhanger. There are some things that are unresolved plot-wise, but things with Ox and Joe are solid.
