Plot:
Carter, the eldest of Bennett's, has left his pack and gone on search of the feral wolf that had been like a shadow to him. He may get him back but not without a fight from Robert Livingstone and there won't be any happiness without defeating him. All the half truths and secrets get exposed bringing everyone closer and whether they survive Robert Livingstone is the rest of the story.
Thoughts:
This was a fitting conclusion with few heartbreaking moments. I wanted more chemistry between the MCs and less chatter at times. Overall it was good but the writing could've been crisper.

This is the fourth installment in the series. The plotline is as usual amazing and interesting. The characters were penned wonderfully nice as the previous installments of the series.
I have been a fan of the author and I am glad I got an opportunity to read this as an ARC .

This is the conclusion to the Green Creek series and oh my gosh, I have never been so disappointed.

This had been a typically five star series for me throughout, there was so much action and love it was easy to speed through these books. So what happened ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I found this confusing, boring and repetitive. Not only repetitive within the story itself, but repetitive of previous books too. Whereas the others are mind blowing in terms of depth of the romance, humour, plot, and plot twists, Brothersong is barely a shadow of that.

Itโ€™s still well written, still has that spark of all the awesome characters that TJ Klune has created for the most gorgeous found family ever, but lacks that wow factor that had me sobbing hysterically over a pack of gay werewolves in the previous books.

Right now Iโ€™m a huge mixed up ball of feelings - I have laughed, I have cried, I have gasped out loud and Iโ€™ve shouted at this book. All of this sat on a sunbed surrounded by strangers who now think Iโ€™m a complete lunatic and I donโ€™t care!

I wonโ€™t say that this is the most actioned packed or emotional book of the series but, itโ€™s the perfect ending to this amazing series. It begins at such a low and dark point in the Bennett family lives, with Carter very much lost, alone and desperate to find Gavin that my poor heart was breaking for them.

Despite this, it still broke into such wonderful heart warming and wonderful moments through Carterโ€™s flashbacks to his childhood and his memories of his brothers, particularly Kelly his tether. It truly fleshed out the story of the brothersโ€™ relationship and life together that was both emotional and at times funny.


Plus thereโ€™s the whole Carter/Gavin relationship, which was so wonderful to see develop beyond what weโ€™d seen in the previous books in the series - โ€œStupid Carter.โ€

Their 121 interactions, though relatively brief were quite profound and I truly adored seeing Gavin come back into himself and truly dazzle us! I would loved for there to have been more time for us to discover them together but, the pace of the story needed the reunification of the pack and that small quiet Christmas was truly heart warming. It was lovely to see Gavin slot into place within this family and just how earnestly both he and Carter worked and fought for their future together.

I will say that at one point I totally had to put this book down - my heart was broken and I was truly crying, letโ€™s be honest bawling my eyes out! So either damn, this is a good book or Iโ€™m getting very soft in my old age - Iโ€™ll leave that judgement up to you but, this is the final book in the series and that ending truly closed it perfectly. Although, if I was being critical I could ask for the book to be broken into two, the first giving Carter and Gavin the time and space to explore their relationship more, and the second to give a more detailed ending to the series but, I suspect then there would be complaints that it could all have been one book! You canโ€™t please all of the people all of the time!

Brothersong is a beautiful ending to the Green Creek Series and Iโ€™m so sad itโ€™s finished but, Iโ€™m also so happy for the conclusion it came to. Thank you so much Tor, Pan MacMillan and NetGalley for the arc of Brothersong by TJ Klune in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The final instalment in The Green Creek series, we follow the oldest of the pack Carter.
As Carter leaves his pack to find answers, we learn more about Gavin and Thomas.
Plot: 3,5/5 (4/5 for the back stories, 3/5 for the romance)
Characterisation: 4.5/5
Prose: 3/5
Mood: 4/5
Brotherhood: 5/5
Inclusivity - great, but overall, the series would be perfectly perfect with more female characters (there are a few here)

I am completely, utterly, shamelessly wordless.
Coming up with something to describe this book, let alone this series itยดs almost impossible, because just one word comes to mind: MASTERPIECE.

I knew Carter and Gavinยดs story would have been my favourite. But what is the meaning of favourite when ALL the books in these serie are perfection and were my favourite at some point in my life?

TJ, I can and will give my soul to you, afterall I am already giving you my money, so same same.

Anyway. Since apparently I cannot explain myself, here is a list of things I likes about the book:
- GAVIN!
- CARTER!
- The book from Kelly and Joe.
- Joe vulnerability.
- GAVIN!
- Ox wolf Jesus.
- Chris and Tanner platonic whatever (I need at least a novella about them).
- CARTER!
- Ricoยดs bright soul and Bambi girlboss greatness.
- Robbie and Gordoยดs relationship
- Elisabeth
- GAVIN
- Will and his sense of humor
- CARTER

10000 starts and all my fucking love to this serie!

This book had a great plot with intriguing characters. Iโ€™ll definitely be looking out for more from this author.

Another wonderful trip to the Green Creek Pack and their loves and losses. These books are beautiful, and you can find all manner of representation when it comes to sexuality and personality. These books really know how to kick you in the feels over and over again. A must-read.

I literally adore everything I have ever read from TJ Klune and in Brothersong (with another magnificent cover!), it is no different. Phenomenal on every level!!

Was this review helpful?

Tj Klune has the power to break me with a lot his books but I spent most of this story crying! Whether it was happy or sad, I am grateful for all of it! The Green Creek series is a must read. I am sad that this is the last book in the series as this world is so easy to full into.

It was candy canes and pinecones and epic and awesome. It was dirt and leaves and rain. It was grass and lake water and sunshine. It was thump and thump and thump.

The fourth and final Book of the Green Creek series follows Carter, the oldest Bennett brother and picks up after Book 3's finish with him following Gavin into the wilderness.

We get flashbacks of Carter's childhood as the eldest and his role as protector towards Kelly and Joe, and every extra little bit we're shown about this family just makes me love them more.

I love how Klune writes about love. The love between brothers, the love between parent and child, the love for your friends, and of course romantic love and how it's not always what you expect. I read falling in love being described once as "happening slowly, then all at once" and I think that describes Carter perfectly.

All in all if there were 100 of these books I'd happily read them all.

Reading this saga is good. It is not a perfect book, it is not a perfect saga, at times slow and repetitive, sometimes tiring, with a simplistic fantasy plot and confusing in the resolution, but they are books that leave you with a world.
This saga must be read for the characters, you can not help but LOVE the Bennett family, all of them, no one excluded.
Klune is a master at creating deep, solid relationships, never predictable and inclusive at 360 degrees. There are such strong themes, treated with intelligence and sweetness.
The Bennet family will remain dear to my heart: Elisabeth first and foremost, the woman who carries the family on her shoulders with love, the strong and balanced mother, Gordo and Gavin who are gruff but with huge hearts, the Bennett brothers who finally had the chance to talk to each other openly and who are incredible, Carter who I discovered determined and fragile, Rico who deserves a book of his own for how multifaceted and unconventional he is, Jessie and Dominique who made me laugh so much, Chris and Tanner who amazed me and showed me that you shouldn't set limits and boundaries in love and, finally, Thomas who I missed on every page.
How much love this book. How much family, the real one, extended, of the heart.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with this ARC! The new cover art is gorgeous!

This series has been such a delight to read and I loved it but will so miss the characters now. They found their was into my heart. A great final (sob...) book.

I have loved every single one of the books in this series and this was such a great ending.
Iโ€™m so sad itโ€™s over now and Iโ€™m going to miss these characters so much. I can see this being a series I read time and time again.
T J Klune is an auto-buy author for me, his stories are just incredible, the characters, the found family. Just perfect.

Absolutely amazing way to end a beloved series, I am sad that this is the last, but am pleased it ended so well. I have adored this series and have loved all the vibes!

Was this review helpful?

I am so sad to say goodbye to this world cause the way these characters have burrowed into my heart is a mark of TJ Klune's stellar writing. The pack interaction made my found-family heart sing and their shenanigans made my day light up! The characters were all so distinct and their voices really shone in this conclusion., I did feel like there were a lot of time jumps so I was disappointed to miss those moments and it disturbed the pacing of the book for me. The narration was a bit clunky and the plot was hard to follow at times but that might've been intentional, just not for everyone. While this was not my favorite book in the series, it was a great theme to end on (bringing everything back full circle is always a heartwarming way to conclude a beloved world) so it was still a great read!

This is a fitting end to the series and very much in the style of the previous three books, but this time with the focus predominantly on the relationship between Carter and Gavin.
The queer vibes are strong with the Bennet pack and it felt appropriate to read this book during Pride month.
With thanks to NetGalley and Pan Macmillan for the chance to read an arc. This beautiful new edition is out on 1 August.
