Under the Whispering Door


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 little boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the little boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the little 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 little 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. (less)

After reading Under the Whispering Door I knew I wanted to read more by Klune. I had heard about this earlier series by him so when I saw that Pan MacMillan was rereleasing it with a new cover on Netgalley I had to request the book.

Wolfsong is much more than just a werewolf story. It is a story of coming of age. Of becoming who you are. There such a depth and feeling in the story of Ox that it pulled so hard at my heart strings even if I had to get used to Ox as a character at first. But he grows so much as a character.

At the start I had to get used to the writing. It is a bit different than what I am used to. Short sentences, sometimes just words when it is in the head of the wolves. Many times going back to memories. Starting scenes with this is how it went for instance. It is a different style for sure. But it worked to help create the emotional tension. To get into Ox’s head and grow along with him.

But what I loved more than anything were the relationships between the characters. How Ox connected with Gordo, Joe and the Bennett’s. How the garage guys adapted him into the family. How his relationship with his mother grew throughout all that happened. How they were always there for each other.
