It’s all candy canes and pinecones and epic and awesome. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my presentation for Wolfsong.

Wolfsong (Green Creek, #1)Wolfsong by T.J. Klune
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Superb and complete. And I’m using complete as the most perfect keyword for Wolfsong. Because that’s what it is. Full. Packed with feels, action and thrill. And the emotions are so big, so great that they even overflow that package and go out to live for themselves. That big.

And did anyone said pack? Yeah. I guess I did.

This is Ox story. A tale about a special kid who, far from be the stupid and retarded boy his father convinced him he was, grew up to be remarkable and powerful. Kind and brave. Ox is love, tight bonds and friendship. Ox is family. Ox is pack.

This journey begins with us —readers— thrown in the dirty road where Ox lives (literally and metaphorically). The road Ox walks as the lonely kid he is, without knowing that some day someone else will walk that path with him. Or —what it’s much, much better— someone else will wait there for him. In that precise dirty road (and again I’m talking literally and metaphorically at the same time).

A perfect combination between humor and sadness. And it’s so beautifully written that those sad parts are deeper and harder to deal with. It helps that the characters are well built and developed and you get to know and love them. All of them.
And in return for the suffering, all the sad and serious is smoothly lighted up with the hilarious that the dialogues and conversations are.
The book alternates sad, deep, intense and lovely with exquisite humor and funny dialogues. Dialogues to reread two, three times before turning the page.

As you can see, I’m not revealing anything vital about the plot. I started my reading blind and if you do the same you won’t regret it, because you will live the complete pack pack pack experience and you’ll do it smelling candy canes and pinecones and epic and awesome.

Highly recommend!

Second installment in The Order Series by Kasia Bacon: so good, so short and so “keep writing about this universe Kasia, and do it fast”
