Ox was twelve 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 sixteen 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 seventeen when he found out the boy's secret, and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.
Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred 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.

As a reader, I'm always looking for that one story that stands out from all the rest, the one that makes my heart rhythm change and captures my attention.
Author T.J. Klune delivers just that -- and more -- in WOLFSONG. The writer's rather unusual writing style, described as such because of the simplistic yet lyrical way the story is told, is like nothing I have ever read before.
As a paranormal GLBT story, WOLFSONG stands out in its authenticity. The focus of the story is Ox, a young boy who captured my heart from the beginning. The paranormal aspect is woven well into the story, with clues dropped along the way of a much more intricate plot than meets the eye.
Whether it's the freshness of the characters or the dynamic emotions surrounding each scene, I found this to be a phenomenal coming of age story where a boy finds his place in an unconventional way.
I was amazed at the author's development of the story, which went above and beyond my expectations. At what I thought would be the typical place to end the story, it turned out that it was only the halfway mark!
I found myself fully immersed in the workings of the Bennett family, trying to figure out exactly what drew Ox to Joe. Through love and loss, the author easily captured my attention, even taking me to the point of tears.
WOLFSONG is a beautiful saga about family, friendship and the importance of belonging. I loved it from start to finish.
