Synopsis

Ravensong is the second book in the Green Creek Series, the beloved fantasy romance sensation by New York Times bestselling author TJ Klune, about love, loyalty, betrayal, and family.

“Complex and startling… Green Creek is the perfect setting.” —Charlaine Harris

The Bennett family has a secret: They’re not just a family, they’re a pack. Ravensong is Gordo Livingstone’s story.

Gordo Livingstone never forgot the lessons carved into his skin. Hardened by the betrayal of a pack that 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.

It was, until the wolves came back, and with them, Mark Bennett. And when his town is caught in the jaws of a beast, Gordo is summoned back into the life that left him.

“Gordo, you must rise. For your pack. For us. I must ask you to become the witch to the wolves.”

Now, a year later, Gordo has once again found himself 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 coming from within.

The Green Creek Series is for adult readers.

Audiobook Review

4,5 stars

I had waited so long to read that book but I am glad I did as now the Green Creek series is whole and I can binge read if I want!

It was different from Wolfsong. We had known Gordo as an adult while Ox was a kid at the beginning of Wolfsong.

So instead of growing up with the character, Ravensong takes us back in time, back to Gordo’s childhood and all the events that happened to make him who he is now.

TJ Klune did a fine job portraying a young and happy Gordo before tragedy struck, living two lives: one with the Bennett pack with their alpha Abe and one with his oblivious human friends Chris, Tanner and Rico.

I must confess that the banter of “team human” was my favorite part in the book!

These boys, now men, have mischief and banter as their middle name! They are so irreverent that was a hoot!

It truly was the comic relief this book needed because it was so much more angsty and angry than I expected!

Angry because Gordo has lost his pack twice and has been blighted by Thomas Bennett. Abandoned at fifteen when he had just lost his family! He was human and even if Thomas swore that he was and always would be, the Bennett witch, the wolves still left him behind in Green Creek!

I must say that I am still furious with Thomas!

And angsty because there is a real danger to the wolves’ world and it felt like a race against the clock to save their kind and some members of the pack!

Switching between back and present days, between anger, despair but also hope and laughter, that sequel was a wonderful addition to the Green Creek series, ending on a cliffhanger! So now I HAVE to read the other books, hopefully this year, just to know what will happen and see how all the relationships will grow and blossom.

Last comment: the narrator did a fine job narrating that story so if you are into LGBTQ and love audiobooks, that might be the road to take.

Thanks for reading.
