All Robbie Fontaine ever wanted was a place to belong. After the death of his mother, he bounces around from pack to pack, forming temporary bonds to keep from turning feral. It’s enough—until he receives a summons from the wolf stronghold in Caswell, Maine.
Life as the trusted second to Michelle Hughes—the Alpha of all—and the cherished friend of a gentle old witch teaches Robbie what it means to be pack, to have a home.
But when a mission from Michelle sends Robbie into the field, he finds himself questioning where he belongs and everything he’s been told. Whispers of traitorous wolves and wild magic abound—but who are the traitors and who the betrayed?
More than anything, Robbie hungers for answers, because one of those alleged traitors is Kelly Bennett—the wolf who may be his mate.
The truth has a way of coming out. And when it does, everything will shatter.
Something is seriously wrong with me because I made the extremely poor decision to start Heartsong at 10 pm.
I decided to read just a few chapters, and I checked the clock a minute later and it was stupidly, nonsensically 3:30 am. THREE-THIRTY IN THE FREAKING MORNING.
If you think there will be a natural stopping place where you can put the book down for a bit, some downtime between the excitement and action, you'd be dead wrong.
I was a bit worried about reading this one because it had been about a year since I read Ravensong, and I was concerned that I had forgotten all the details. I was also worried that this would be an established couple story, and I often struggle with those. However, the book totally surprised me in the best possible way.
The story is an established couple story... and it totally isn't. We get all the butterflies and excitement of a new relationship, and all of the pain and struggles of a love that has weathered a terrible storm. The love story WILL make you feel all the feels.
Also, just remember that one of the MCs is asexual, so the story has relatively low steam. But, trust me, you won't even miss it. I felt everything I wanted to feel.
The best part of the story is definitely how well-paced it is. It's a long book, almost 400 pages, but the reading time will absolutely fly by. It was extremely hard for me to put the story down (3:30 am, duh!).
No, the story is not a stand-alone. Yes, I can't wait for Brothersong. And HELL YES, you will be thrilled by this story.
