    REVIEW: Heartsong by T.J. Klune

    39926005. sy475

    Green Creek: Heartsong – T.J. Klune

    All Robbie Fontaine ever wanted was a place to belong. After the death of his mother, he bounces around from pack to pack, forming temporary bonds to keep from turning feral. It’s enough—until he receives a summons from the wolf stronghold in Caswell, Maine.

    Life as the trusted second to Michelle Hughes—the Alpha of all—and the cherished friend of a gentle old witch teaches Robbie what it means to be pack, to have a home.

    But when a mission from Michelle sends Robbie into the field, he finds himself questioning where he belongs and everything he’s been told. Whispers of traitorous wolves and wild magic abound—but who are the traitors and who the betrayed?

    More than anything, Robbie hungers for answers, because one of those alleged traitors is Kelly Bennett—the wolf who may be his mate.

    The truth has a way of coming out. And when it does, everything will shatter.


    Lake water.

    Robbie. Kelly.

    My soft, soft boys…

    At first, I thought it was a flashback.

    It’s not.

    Then I thought Ezra and his liverspots was a nice old man.

    He’s so much more than that.

    Oh, no. No no no!

    T.J. Klune took us once again to Green Creek and the wonderful Bennett pack. But not before he tore a piece of them out yet again. Even the wolf mother, Elizabeth, started to think they were cursed.

    Heartsong was a fight to survive. To find the mate who was stolen. To take back the memories that were erased. To restore bonds that were shattered. To heal hearts that were broken. To have a place to belong to and peace and love and happiness even just for now.

    I howl for you.

    Heartsong is packed with FEELS. It was fluffy and awesome and bittersweet and funny, also painful and shitshitshit I can’t look and oh my fucking gad how can you do that to them, TJ!!!



    Heartsong is the third book of the mind-blowing Green Creek series. The books are best read in order because you’ll howl for them too.

    Happy Asexual Awareness Week, everyone!

    I’m very glad to celebrate it with the amazing ace, Kelly, middle Bennett brother, Green Creek deputy and Robbie’s mate. These two are adorbs! Kelbie is my favorite Green Creek ship.

    Carter as mayor is gold tho.

    5 Stars – absolutely perfect

    Green Creek: Ravensong – T.J. Klune

    Gordo Livingstone never forgot the lessons carved into his skin. Hardened by the betrayal of a pack who left him behind, he sought solace in the garage in his tiny mountain town, vowing never again to involve himself in the affairs of wolves.

    It should have been enough.

    And it was, until the wolves came back, and with them, Mark Bennett. In the end, they faced the beast together as a pack… and won.

    Now, a year later, Gordo has found himself once again the witch of the Bennett pack. Green Creek has settled after the death of Richard Collins, and Gordo constantly struggles to ignore Mark and the song that howls between them.

    But time is running out. Something is coming. And this time, it’s crawling from within.

    Some bonds, no matter how strong, were made to be broken

    T.J. Klune wasn’t kidding when he said that Ravensong was “bigger, more hardcore, darker and shit blows up”.

    In the first book, Wolfsong, we meet Ox and Joe, and the Bennett pack. The boys grew up together then fell apart. The book closed with the pack once again united. Now it’s Gordo’s story to tell. 

    Once, there was a boy.
    Once, there was a wolf.
    He had sat with his back against a tree.
    His bare feet were in the grass.
    The boy leaned forward and kissed the wolf.
    And knew then that nothing would ever be the same.

    Ravensong is Gordo’s past, present and future. The first several chapters jumps back and forth from his childhood, growing up with his dad inking magic into his skin, running with the pack, his adventures with Rico, Chris and Tanner, and his encounters with Mark up to his life on the road with Joe, Kelly and Carter on the trail of Richard Collins.The rest of the book deals with the town’s lockdown and the war with Elijah. 

    The hurt. The grief that never entirely goes away. The rage. The hate. The push and the pull. The love. SO.MUCH.FEELS.


    The funny thing about hate is the razor-thin line that separates it from something else entirely

    Gordo has been burned time and time again and he doesn’t forgive easily. 

    I don’t believe your promises anymore.

    He also can’t stay away.

    Here, in the dark, hearing him laugh reminded me of the way things once had been. And the way things could be…

    The atypical prose perfectly captures all the raw, hard-edged emotions. Nobody comes out unscathed.

    There were bright spots of irreverent, self-aware humor inserted at just the right places because Team Human is gold. They say out loud the things I’m thinking.  

    The entire Bennett pack is precious. I live for the wolves and the humans. Protect them at all cost!

    It took almost the entire book for Gordo to get his head out of his ass. All while, nobody hesitated to tell him he’s being an asshole. I love it! He and Mark deserved their home.

    I know Wolfsong was epic and awesome but Ravensong was all that and more.  I wholeheartedly recommend the Green Creek series even to those who are not fans of shifter stories because I am also not a fan of shifter stories but T.J. Klune had me howling with his wolves. 

    All my stars for the Bennett pack.


    To fully enjoy Ravensong, it’s best to read Wolfsong first. The books are not standalones.
