Other books in this series I reviewed
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.
After finishing Wolfsong I immediately bought the rest of the series because I was just that invested in this group of people, werewolves, whatever. I knew that each book focuses on a different character and couple and I think that was a good choice. Ox and Joe had their big growth and hurdle and now it is time for the rest.
Oh Gordo, how I feel for him. I wanted to tear a few people to shreds just for him. Namely his father and Thomas Bennett. The trauma those people cost him, not on. Especially Thomas Bennett. I don’t care how many excuses people keep coming up with for that man throughout this whole series, you do not leave a 15 year old boy that was just orphaned alone. Yes I might have been feeling rather stabby throughout this entire book. It shows why he so desperately wanted to keep Ox away from them in Wolfsong and I can’t blame him for that.
As much as I feel that Mark and Gordo have a lot of chemistry and work, there are also parts where I felt that maybe Mark needed to get his head out of his ass. You can’t expect to leave a 15 year old boy behind and have him wait for you when you never show yourself. Like get of your high horse. Though stalker mark was funny. True stalking it was not because that is not cool but the awkwardness surrounding those two was funny.
This was a strong follow up that filled in a lot of the gaps that I had from the first book. It just lacked the same emotional punch (even if I got angry so many times for Gordo).
