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.

"Kirt Graves is superb!"
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.
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.
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!
"A Song for the Soul"
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.
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.
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.
Absolutely. I wish I could have sat down and just listened from beginning to end without stopping.
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.
"Good but painstakingly long."
I love the characters, the story was good , narration was good too
But at almost the end I want it to quit because the voice of Ox got very humdrum to me .
It was too much of humdrum also there wasnot enough sexiness and romance it was a very slow burn romance.
But over all it was a good listen.
The narrator was excellent.
"Epic and Awesome! Greatest Shifter Story of 2016!"
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.
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.
It's well written, and full of emotion. Something which was really brought across in the narration. This book was easy to get into, and has fast become one of my treasured favorites.
"Very different style"
It was so new and inspiring....a romance I never thought I would enjoy reading, but ended up just waiting to see them finally be able to realize their love and destinty. It was as much of a romance as one between a woman and a man. Just lovelhy.
The love, of all the characters involved. The strength of characters....well developed and so enjoyable.
Very good narration
I criied through this wonderful love story
I was sorry the book ended
"Not into shifter stories, but"
I'm not into shifter stories, but love TJ Klune novels. I gave it a chance and I love the story. Love love love it
"mystic moon magic"
this audio is pinecones and candy canes, of epic and awesome.
I think I cried through the entire thing. No, i dont think, I know. Joe and Ox are my new favorites. I love that Ox is human. That he doesn't exactly know what bonding and everything is. that they didn't get an automatic love story, they really, really, had to work for it. It was just a really unique story.
This narrator was an awesome Ox. Ox himself is such a unique character. Flawed, but perfectly so, and the narrator just really brought that out in him. I also loved his Gordo and Elizabeth narrations.
I highly recommend this, though I don't know if I could re-listening to this one like I can with TLSH & TQatHJK, as it kicks me right in the feels
"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"
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.
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.
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.
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.
Loved it from start to finish.tj klune is the master.great narration from a first timer.cant wait for the next book
