Publisher's Summary

Ox was 12 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 16 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 17 when he found out the boy's secret, and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet.

Ox was 23 when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his blood red 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.

    Story
    "Completely epic and awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wolfsong to be better than the print version?

    I love the print version, and I loved the audio. Choosing between them is not an option - each brings something the other lacks, but on their own, each is also complete! I'm glad I have both and will both reread and relisten to Wolfsong in the future.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I truly wish I had the words to express how much I loved this book. I loved Joe and Ox, I loved the way it was written and I loved how it made me live their story, not just read it. My heart hurts as I felt every bit of love, passion, loss, betrayal, redemption and life. Every emotion. I felt everything. I had to work for it along with Joe and Ox and it was worth every single second.

    Utterly love this book.


    What about Kirt Graves’s performance did you like?

    The way this book is written is not what I'd call the norm - when reading I got completely wrapped up in the narrative and Kirt's performance totally nailed how it was paced in my head.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - and if I thought I could get 18 hours of peace to do so I would have!


    Any additional comments?

    When I finished I felt utterly bereft! Such a good audio.

    "Wolfsong, brilliant book "

    Thisis Most definitely one of the best audio books i have listened to. The story has you gripped from the start but it's completely different from the usual m/m books i have read ir listened to. You can't help fallibg in love with Ox from the beginning, and throughput the book that feeling just grows. All the characters are amazing especially Ox, Joe and the rest of Joe's family as well as Ox's mum.
    a truly fantastic book brilliantly written and excellently narrated.

    "Completely Awesome"

    Such an emotional story, a complete roller coaster ride of emotions.. if your new to m/m but love shifter stories this book is for you. I put off reading this for so long, thinking it wasn't for me but wow was I wrong! It blew my head off and made me sob from start to finish, definitely not hearts and flowers but true grit, determination and love, lots of love.

    "Words can not describe how much I love this!"

    It's like TJ has taken stories from my head, written them down and made them 100 x better. I loved this and didn't want it to end. Please tell me this isn't it?! There has to be more.

    The characters are so real and you live right along with them. I laughed, I cried and can't help but feel a bit lost now I've finished it.

    It is written and narrated beautifully and couldn't recommend it more.

    "Kirt Graves WAS Ox and Joe....."

    What a whopper of an audio book this was, and TJ was right. This may have been Kirt Graves' first audio book narration but he WAS Ox and Joe. All of the voices, even the monster Richard Collins that went after Joe when he was young, all were perfect, although it has to be said that listening to the audio did reinforce just how repetitious some of the book was in parts. 5 stars.

    "Of pine cones, and candy canes, of epic and awesome."

    "Very good audiobook! Highly recommended"
    What made the experience of listening to Wolfsong the most enjoyable?

    I have already read "Wolfsong" in the summer and as soon as I read this was getting realised ( audio) I snapped it up on release day. Wolf song is beautiful; It's one of my favourite stories of this year. I could not put it down, much to sighs of my boyfriends lonely Saturday night with my head in the book and not paying him an ounce of attention. OX is thoughtful, brave,humane and a strong voice that at times breaks you as the reader. Joe is handsome, damaged and I loved their romance, and I craved every interaction between them. Props to all the secondary characters ( Feels for Jessie as a strong female character in a sea of strong supports).I also loved that he was angry, Angry for a long time. This was real and just. I hate in novels when a character forgives too easily.It was nice to see a story reflect a strong emotion and characteristic.


    To sum it up-HIGHLY recommended story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    To be honest, I have read Wolfsong already. I was very familiar with the story. The author TJ Klune can slip into funny, angsty and romantic all in one book or let one emotion dictate a whole novel. Please check out his work as he is very talented and someone I look forward to reading.


    Have you listened to any of Kirt Graves’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Kirt Graves- I read on TJ Klunes Goodreads/blog update that this his first gig at audiobook reading. He is so good!. Young Joes voice and adult Joe is so well developed and thoughtful that I had to stop it when adult Joe appeared to take the moment in.Apparently, he won the audition on his Gordo alone ( something I hadn't imagined for his voice but it really works). Having read the story previously I envisioned certain voices and characteristics for the group- Kirt Graves put more passion and character into the performances then I could have imagined. Well done Graves. I also was a massive fan of his Robbie.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. This story is very angsty and at times quite sad.So for a short time, my heart was breaking and needed a small break to think about the characters. Not a reflection on the book just on my current state of affairs.
    It's very easy to get swept away in this audiobook and I have spent long periods submerged in it.

    "Kirt Graves is superb!"
    Any additional comments?

    I can name on one hand and still have fingers left over the number of audiobooks that have felt almost life changing. Wolfsong is one of them.

    Maybe it's because Wolfsong is one of my favorite books ever. But, honestly, I think the truly exceptional narration by Kirt Graves is the reason.

    Hands down, newcomer voice actor Graves nails everything in Wolfsong. He is superb.

    From the character voices, to his pacing, to the emotion infused so perfectly in all the right places...

    This audiobook is EVERYTHING. Everything I had hoped for and everything I could have possibly wanted.

    I do not want to spoil this story. You must read and listen it. You must. It's one of TJ's greatest stories. It's so different from anything else of his I've read, and yet there are so many elements of things I love from his other stories interwoven here.

    This is hands down one of the best stories I’ve read this year. It’s one of the best stories I’ve read in the genre. This hooked me from the first chapter. It had no lags. I was invested in every single moment, and when it ended all I thought was, “I want more. Please give me more.”

    Highly, highly recommended.

    "Heartbreakingly beautiful"

    Okay. Here we go again with Audible screwing with reviews... I had a lovely review written for this book, but it cut it off about in the middle. SO. Until I can get the review I want posted, I'll tell you this. As always, TJ Klune never fails to touch every emotion inside of me. This book IS about werewolves, but it's so very much more. I laughed so hard early on that I thought my heart might come away whole. And, though I never got to the full-on wookie cry face, there were many tears. It's a story of losing a part of yourself, and then finding your confidence, ability to love, and being strong with the help of your friends and family (or pack as the case may be). Kirt Graves did an amazing job narrating this book! He was a pleasure to listen to, and really brought the story to life.

    I'll make this easy for you. If you love TJ, buy the audiobook. If you like werewolves with a MM undercurrent, buy this audiobook. Don't hesitate, just one-click and thank me later.

    "Worth 5 credits!!!"

    Klune has created a masterpiece and Graves read it perfectly. Wolfsong is 19 hours of a story line that is sewn together beautifully, seamlessly. It is full of tenderness, laughing out loud humor, heroism and angst. I've enjoyed it so much that I restarted it, to listen to in full again, right after finishing it. I have over 1000 books in my audible library. I count this as one of my favorites.

    As an aside, I will quickly return a book because I find the narrator annoying or the story doesn't draw me in. I was so impressed with Kirt Graves that I looked to see what other works he's done. This is the only one on audible. I will be checking & hoping that he will be doing more books in the future. Also, TJ Klune is one of my favorite authors (especially "The Art of Breathing") who I check on for new works regularly.

    "Loved the story, but not the writing"

    I go back and forth on this. Over all the story is very good. I love TJs books and writing but this one had way to much of He said, I said, He said ..... and it repeatedly repeated itself. The book could've been shorter. I like books that you know the dialogue between the people and you don't have to say he said, I said, I said. Over all it's a good book. If there is a book 2 I would read it.

    This was by far the best story I have ever listened to! TJ Klune is beyond phenomenal. The wonder of his mind brought to life a story that touched both heart and soul and I can truly say I will never be the same. Kirt Graves narration brought to life Ox and Joe and all the other characters of this wonderful story in such an amazing way. I cannot recommend this story more...it's a must!

    Story
    "Ox is Love. Ox is Life. The emotions are REAL."

    It is very rare that I read or listen to books written in first person. It's not a style that I prefer because everything is based in the MCs emotions and observations of the world around them. Descriptions tend to be limited and less detailed. Everything just feels like it is less than what it could be if it were written in the third, I can literally count on one hand how many first person books I've read and actually been thoroughly absorbed by.

    This is one of them.

    Even though the story is told by Ox he is so immersed in everything around him that in a very short time it doesn't even feel like you're listening to a first person narrative. The characters are beautifully fleshed out and so real. There were times when what they felt was so overwhelming it brought tears to my eyes.

    This is a story that takes its time and some people might find that to be a drawback. If you're looking for quick smut. This isn't it. If you want a story that is going to rivet you and pull you down a winding path of coming into your own, finding what it means to be home, discovering that loving someone can hurt so much you hate them and fighting with tooth and nail to keep your family whole, then look no further.

    Everything about this book inspires me. The narrator was bliss to listen to and the different accents and inflections of the various characters made them all the more real. Besides that, the dialogue in many of the scenes is hilarious.

    Five stars. Ten stars. A million stars.
    There aren't enough stars to accurately portray how amazing this book is.
    Definitely a must have in any m/m collection!

    Was sucked in by the raving reviews. By chapter 5 I was bored of the story and the ENDLESS use of the F word. Figured I needed to keep going and maybe when I found out the "secret" it would be worth pressing forward....then I got to the "secret", whitches and werewolves...seriously??
    So stupid...baled at that point, such junk!

    "Fabulous story"
    Would you listen to Wolfsong again? Why?

    No, too many tears.


    What other book might you compare Wolfsong to and why?

    Bloodraven by PL Nunn. Bloodraven is a tough read, really tough in places, but for me it was worth every tear, every jaw drop, every WTF. Perfect ending. I'll never forget it. Wolfsong, which has a welcome dose of humor and an occasion lightness, is equally as emotionally wrenching and memorable as Bloodraven. Two incredible stories by different authors.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kirt Graves’s performances?

    No. He was, at best, "adequate" for this story. He doesn't have enough vocal depth and his narrative is monotone. He might be good fit for other stories, but he was miscast for this one.


    Who was the most memorable character of Wolfsong and why?

    Ox, of course. A simple, honest man with a huge heart and the capacity to selflessly serve others. His reactions to discoveries and realizations were priceless and so self effacing. His strength of character and will, his developing leadership, as he matured was stunning. Best of all was watching others realize what a priceless gem this man was.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is written in first person, in an interesting, very brief and concise style that is the perfect expression for both the primary protagonist and the story. It’s a powerful love story set amidst tremendous discoveries, loyalty, friendship, and devastating loss. Readers watch the division and desertion of half a family, and the struggles of that remaining half to find common ground, healing, and unexpected leadership while they wait for the return of their brethren. The characters are beautifully drawn, the prose unique, and the author has given readers a unique twist on an old tale. That said, it deserved a better narrator.

    Story
    "A Song for the Soul"
    What made the experience of listening to Wolfsong the most enjoyable?

    Pacing... the pacing of the reading is so good. The story is one that needs to be read at a perfect pace, just to get the emotion down. This is the first audio book I've listened to that I didn't feel the need to speed up the listening speed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I've now read the book 3 times. Listening to it solidifies my love for it. There is so much passion and love and family that fill the story. It's believable PNR. I want to live in the world of Wolfsong. I want to be part of the pack.


    What about Kirt Graves’s performance did you like?

    Graves's performance is stunning. Simply wonderful. I can't believe that this is his first time! His pacing is perfect. His character voices are awesome. His acting... yes, acting, is so good. He reads with such emotion. The kind of emotion that I was longing for when I started reading the book the first time. Happy moments, as well as sad... they all had feeling. So much feeling.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I wish I could have sat down and just listened from beginning to end without stopping.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Graves reads the audio for the follow up books in this series, and I haven't even read them yet because they're not even written. I'm excited with anticipation.

    "Epic and Awesome! Greatest Shifter Story of 2016!"
    Would you listen to Wolfsong again? Why?

    This is not a spoiler* I loved this story and read the book twice. The only problem I had was the voice for Ox should of been deeper in my opinion. However, Kirk did a great job animating the story. Ox is a young man who is mentally slow (his dad thought) but very large. Ox grows up fast and becomes a great leader. This book touches on the people he dates, the friends he makes. The story is long and I wouldn't remove a minute from it. The story start off when he's young until mid twenties. Ox posses strength like no other mortal man. His mate is his whole world and they express it through beautiful words. The losses that effect the families and the longing will make you cry and ache for him. But in the end you'll celebrate with Alpha's, Omega's and Beta's. Worth a credit and since a few things where left unsaid, I'm sure there will be a book 2.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wolfsong?

    So many memorable moments such as, when Ox and his mate decide to wait to make love. The battle with Gordon the witch in the epic ground shaking. This would make a great movie.
