Summary

In the ruins of Caswell, Maine, Carter Bennett learned the truth of what had been right in front of him the entire time. And then it - he - was gone.

Desperate for answers, Carter takes to the road, leaving family and the safety of his pack behind, all in the name of a man he only knows as a feral wolf. But therein lies the danger: wolves are pack animals, and the longer Carter is on his own, the more his mind slips toward the endless void of Omega insanity.

But he pushes on, following the trail left by Gavin.

Gavin, the son of Robert Livingstone. The half-brother of Gordo Livingstone.

What Carter finds will change the course of the wolves forever. Because Gavin's history with the Bennett pack goes back further than anyone knows, a secret kept hidden by Carter's father, Thomas Bennett.

And with this knowledge comes a price: The sins of the fathers now rest upon the shoulders of their sons.

Contains mature themes.

So Beautifully Written & Narrated 🥰

I don’t think I have ever cried as much as I have listening to an audiobook.

TJK writes beautifully in this final instalment and Kirt Graves narrates perfectly!

Somebody wrote in their review that they couldn’t understand why the story kept going from past to present - I don’t believe that to be the case.
I felt that it was very fluid, and the past references were to understand as a whole, each characters story, bringing them all to a conclusion. No confusion at all!

This series is beautiful, heartfelt, endearing, sad (very sad) but also humorous when necessary.

This has to be the best series I’ve ever read/listened to with Bear, Otter & The Kid a close second.

TJK is a master in this genre, and is unlikely to be surpassed - My opinion anyway 😊

Definitely a series of audiobooks I will cherish always!

5🌟’s and would give more if I could!!

Controversial opinion

I adored the earlier books in this series and was so excited when this was released. TJ Klune has a unique way of writing that can take me a couple of hours to get into sometimes ...but then the magic slowly weaves around me and sucks me into the story. I go from unsure to so completely converted that I never want the book to end - and give the book 5 stars. Usually. This book, however, just is not working for me at all.

I’m 11.5 hours into it and I am soooo bored. The first 7.5 hours you were lost in the omega mindset of confusion, flashbacks and detachment from reality. This section was way too long. Then the story meanders on with no real focus, no emotional connection, and I didn’t feel the relationship development either. They keep going on about the brotherly bonds and love, but I didn’t feel that either. I’m so disappointed. I don’t even know if I can bring myself to finish the story as there’s still another 8 hours left. I’m going to move onto another book to try and stop feeling so glum, and maybe someday I can finish it. This story was just emotionally detached.

I have a general rule that if I’m bored and don’t want to finish a book (even if I make myself get to the end) it’s capped at 2 stars. I can’t believe that’s what I’m rating a Green Creek book.

Just checked the reviews on Goodreads because surely I’m not alone in this sea of amazingly high ratings, and it turns out there are others like me who loved the earlier books and were really disappointed with this one.

Not clear this is the final part of a series!

I bought this audiobook not realising it was the 4th in the ‘Green Creek’ series. By the time I realised, I was several hours in, and decided to carry on, but I’ve probably had a skewed experience because this information wasn’t clear on the Audible site.
What made me carry on, even when some things seemed obscure, was the hypnotic prose - full of almost Dr Seuss-like repetitions, combined with rhythms of the pulpit. It’s quite unlike a lot of other shifter romance books I’ve read - there’s less sex (not necessarily a bad thing), and it does GO ON at times (those preacher-style rhythms!), but I didn’t really feel the attraction between protagonists Carter and Gavin.

One editorial-type remark - Judy Garland did not record a ‘cover’ of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - she was the original recording artist!

Best books ever

TJ Klune has written a masterpiece in this series of books and Kirt Graves reads them beautifully and with the perfect amount of gravitas and humour needed. The characters are built to perfection and then taken a little bit further to make sure you will love them all. The story is believable and full of love and humour, life and death, with a good amount of the supernatural thrown in for good measure. I can not recommend enough.

Bittersweet ending to this series ...

***Audio Review November 2020***

An emotional audio from Kirt...in fact, I found the audio to be much better than reading the story. I LOVED his interpretation of Gavin [stupid, stupid Carter] and it was a great way to finish the series. 5 stars for the audio, and I've rounded up the total rating to 5 stars from the average 4.5 stars.

***Book Review October 2020***

So...that's it, the end/finale of the Green Creek series 😕. Yes, I liked but not loved it; tbh, if anything it was a tad underwhelming...but that's on me, my expectations were probably set a little too high 🙄. As some other reviewers have also said, there wasn't enough Carter/Gavin time in the story for me, and obviously everyone would've gone after TJ with pitchforks if one of the most popular characters in the series had been killed off before their HEA. As it is, I thought my fave character's [not Carter] number was up, but he was saved at the end thank goodness. Thump, thump, thump certainly made a change from pack, pack, pack though, and no, there were no tears from this particular reader.

Awesome end to a wonderful series!

I waited ages to listen to the last in the green creek series and this did not disappoint. As usual Kirt brings the story and characters to life on a way that adds brilliantly to what has to be one of the best stories I have ever read.

my favourite series ever

Kirt Graves is the best narrator I've ever come across and I've come across plenty. He is book, everything is perfect in this book. I'm forever hunted by the beautiful writing. I feel my heart so full and so happy. What a great ending to a great story. Ox Ox Ox

Fantastic ending to the series.

This is the final book in the Green Creek series. The beautiful, exciting story of Carter and Gavin was the perfect ending to the Bennett family saga. TJ Klune is a master storyteller. His books are always so well written that the characters seem to exist outside the pages of their story and as readers, rather then simply reading two dimensional words on a page, we are invited spectators at an outside window, hands cupped around our faces, just watching real people live their lives. This book is no exception, the characters have dimension, they experience growth, and they have full realistic personalities. Gavin and Carter’s love story started in the previous books as an unconventional one - a wolf shifter stuck as a wolf and a shifter who easily shifts between man and wolf. The book begins where Heartsong left off - Gavin has left with Robert Livingstone in order to save Carter and Carter, being a martyr, starts after Gavin alone leaving his pack, including his brother/tether Kelly, behind. The overriding theme of all the Green Creek books is family, is packpackpack. So of course the pack will be part of the story, the journey of Carter and Gavin, and the evil that is Robert Livingstone. Despite being a darkish fantasy, there is also light here, goodness, hope, love, and redemption. Like the other books in this series, along their journey, Gavin and Carter also deal with their individual issues without magically making them vanish. The storyline is rich with emotion including tender moments, hilarity, mundane life snippets, violence, and tense scenes. It gives you all the feels - horror, anger, love, sadness, resignation, and annoyance. Kirt Graves is perfect in his narration. His voice adds even more depth to these characters. This book wraps up all the storylines and while I will miss the pack, I am not worried about unresolved issues. All is well in Green Creek and with the pack.

PHENOMENAL!!

This last book in the Green Creek series was the book where all the pack members worked together as a whole. Maybe the beginning didn't show that when Carter ran off after Gavin on his own but after when he returned home and he seen just how much the pack and the entire town of Green Creek had accomplished while he was gone.
This last book well all the books really had my emotions all over the place, I was crying in sadness and happiness and laughing at the banter between the pack members. This book brought so many feelings and past issues between brothers that the other books in the series didn't touch. It was really heartwarming to know the true depth of love 💞 and feelings these brothers had for each other.
Every single pack member plus new members got to shine 🌞 , I loved how Rico, Tanner and Chris took to Gavin and made it their mission to teach him the ins and outs.

It took Carter and Gavin some time to truly come together as mates and Carter made it awkward 🙈 as hell, Joe and Kelly did give him some pointers and illustrations. 😂

So many things came to light in this book that we didn't know before, T.J. Klune truly out did himself with this series. I'm heartbroken it has to end but this is one series I will read again and again and never forget what a phenomenal family/pack this was!!! 😍
The narrator Kirt Graves was amazing and the perfect narrator for the entire series! I would have been very disappointed if he didn't narrate the series, his voice was just perfect!

Loved it!!!

I’ve been dying for this book to come and it didn’t disappoint. I absolutely loved it. Kirt Graves has become one of my all time favourite narrators because of this series. He’s so incredibly talented, bringing all the different characters to life with their own voice, their own personality. Love!!!

Good Send Off for Green Creek

Story: 3.75⭐️
Narration: 4.25⭐️


I will be the first to admit that 1) I had reservations about "Brothersong" going in because I honestly felt like Livingstone could have been dealt with in Heartsong (and I stand by that assessment) and 2) I probably wouldn't have been able to enjoy all the narrative choices Klune makes if I hadn't read the short story Feralsong (free on Klune's website) or been reading instead of listening to Kirt Graves.


Having Graves narration, for me, kept the many time jumps and introspection from being too jarring as I had his voice cues to go on. As for reading "Feralsong", I had a much greater understanding of all the unspoken and (almost invisible) brotherly/familial conflicts that are finally exposed and given room to heal in "Brothersong". When Klune says this book is about the Bennett brothers, he really means it as more of the on page and emotional payoff is centered on one or more of the Bennett brothers.



As I've never really considered the romances in the series central to the story, I was neither surprised nor disappointed that Gavin and Carter's romantic relationship takes a backseat to the all the other characters and moving pieces whose developmental arcs need to be resolved. It also makes sense given that Gavin is pretty much still feral and Carter still skittish during almost all of the story. Every one else's romance played out over a span of years; even when we didn't get to see it, we got to see the foundations and results of it. Gavin and Carter's romantic bond is only given months so if you were looking forward to Carter's awkward courtship of a dude, be prepared for disappointment in that regard.



However, if you are looking for a series finisher that showcases the entire community, family and redemption upon which the stories are built, I have to say that "Brothersong" is one of the best I've seen in a while. It may not have given me everything I wanted or made choices that seemed to be unnecessary, bur it did give me elements I didn't know I needed.



As for the narration, normally, I don't say much as Kirt Graves always does a stellar job, and I know I enjoyed this behemoth of a brotherly lovefest more bc of his performance. Yet, weirdly enough, this is one of his weaker recordings in the series. I'm so used to his productions being relatively error-free that I was taken by surprise by some of the inconsistencies in character voices and lack of spacing between chapters. Most of the voice errors are subtle and I probably only notice bc of my familiarity with the series. The lack of a breather between chapters is slightly more bothersome bc there was no time to really take in some moments at the end of chapters, which is fine when you don't go from something tonally dark or emotional in one breath to a chipper/quirky chapter header in the next. That being said, overall, Kirt's performance is as moving and spot-on as always, and I think "Brothersong" is a fine send off for the town of Green Creek.

I have read the Green Creek series but there is just something about listing to Kirt perform it. It’s just so good. I can’t put it in words. Love love love. Pack pack pack. Stupid Carter.

Perfect Narration

I would give this book, the storyline, and the narration quality 500+ stars if I could. Kirt Graves has given voice to all the characters, and I will forever hear him in my head as I read this beautiful conclusion.
Mr Graves made me cry. He made me laugh out loud. He made me sigh and swoon as he narrated the emotional prose written by TJ Klune.
Your reading experience will be lacking if you miss this superior talented man, giving voice to the emotional conclusions from my beloved Green Creek series.

Oh, my heart.

Never in my life have I cried through a book as much as I did with this one. I cried out of sadness, I cried out of happiness, I laughed through my tears at times. What a beautiful end to such an amazing journey that is the Green Creek series. I am sure that I never again will read a series that touches me as deeply as this one has. I’m so sad to be saying goodbye to these amazing characters, to this amazing pack. I don’t have a single negative thing to say. I will say this. If you haven’t read this series, or this book, do it. Now. You will fall in love over and over and over again.

A great ending to a wonderful series

The narrator is amazingly talented and a perfect fit to this great story! My favorite in all of the series, Brothersong is definitely a 5/5.
