Rating:★★★★★ (5 Stars)
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.
Wolfsong was one of my top reads of last year, so I was super excited to read this continuation of the Green Creek series exploring one of the side characters, Gordo Livingstone!
The writing in this book was amazing because while keeping with the overall style of the first in the series, it gave Gordo a voice of his own. It did take a bit to get into because I was diving in expecting another book with a voice like Ox’s (Wolfsong’s protagonist), but I loved this book even more because of how different it was.
This storyline is epic and the romances feel so genuine. There were parts of the story where I felt that I could see the scene playing out as if in a movie. The scale of the action in this book definitely became a lot greater compared to Wolfsong which contributes to making this book more than just a romance. I will say that sometimes I felt the romance was suffering a bit because of all the action and I felt most of the connection that I felt with Mark was leftover because of what I knew of him from the first book.
Ravensong continues on what has become one of my favorite paranormal romance series – I mean, GAY WEREWOLVES (and witches). As much as the story is amazing though, the writing is again what truly brings it to life and makes this book five stars. I absolutely can’t wait for Kelly and Robbie’s book next year. So many questions are left unanswered at the end of this book!
