Ravensong by TJ 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.

Once again, I found myself completely and totally immersed in the story of the Green Creek wolves and their allies. There is something almost mesmerising about the writing in these stories. The prose is beautiful, the characters are wonderful, and at times I swear I could actually feel the magic that binds the Bennett pack together.

This second book belongs to Gordo, the pack witch, and Mark, Joe’s uncle. If Wolfsong tells the story of two boys growing into their adult selves, Ravensong tells the story of two men who have to come to terms with the events and people who shaped their younger selves. There is a long and complicated history between Mark and Gordo and an even uglier history between their families.

The plot is intricate and complicated. I found the first part slow, retelling Joe’s three-year absence from Gordo’s perspective as he accompanies Joe and his brothers on their quest. But once Gordo returns home, the story speeds up to an almost frantic pace. This story is full of action and at times the suspense is almost unbearable.

I loved seeing the Wolfsong characters from a new perspective. I understood the human pack members much better after reading this and I loved the insights into the pack’s history and Gordo’s personal past. I think it is the characters and the relationships between characters that make this series so special. Like Ox, Gordo is not a Bennett and I love the way he scrutinises the pack and pack relationships from his position on the periphery of the pack.

When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid—he didn't think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video game company, much to his chagrin). Now, two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only gotten louder, wondering why he has to go to work as a claims examiner for an insurance company during the day when he could just stay home and write. He recently went slightly insane and moved to the East Coast from the Sonoran Desert with his fiancé and neurotic cat in tow. He dreams about one day standing at Stonehenge, just so he can say he did.
