I'm not going to do a big long fangirl review for this one...or at least I'm going to try not to.
Originally I was going to wait for 'Brothersong' to be released before tackling this one but when I was scrolling through my audiobook library a few days ago I saw 'Wolfsong' then I saw 'Ravensong' and I knew I had 'Heartsong' and that was all it took. I put on my earbuds and it took my hubby all of 5 minutes to figure out that he'd lost me for as long as it would take...thank heavens the man knows how to cook, I mean really somebody had to feed me.
'Heartsong' was absolutely superb. I've liked Robbie since the beginning and with this book we're given his story and we get to know Kelly better as well and surprisingly while Kelly's always been sort of a neither here nor there character for me...I am now head over heels in love with him. Yep, more than Ox or Joe or Mark or Gordo...I adore Kelly. Until now there really hasn't been a lot of Kelly time in the stories, but here in 'Heartsong' he shines. We see his gentle nature, his strength, the depth of his love and just all that he is.
In spite of the fact that the initial chapters resulted in a bit of confusion for me, by the end of it all things not only made sense, but I'm pretty sure that even if I could have I wouldn't have wanted anything to be done any differently. Robbie and Kelly broke my heart with all that they went through to be together and to find their way back to each other so yes, I cried...at times I cried my freakin' heart out and I laughed...there were times that I laughed so much that bathroom breaks were essential.
As for the narration in this book...I'm not sure what else I can say other than "Once again Kirt Graves has done a superb job of narrating a superb story."
You truly can't read or listen to this book on audio without benefit of 'Wolfsong' and 'Ravensong', I think the one thing that all of these books have in common is the incredible, emotional journey they'll take you on.
I really haven't read a lot of shifter books and the ones that I've read and loved are even fewer and even fewer still are the ones that I've read and/or listened to the audio and known at the end that not only would I do it again, but I will be doing it again, if I had a shelf for these books...the only books on that shelf would be TJ Klune's 'Green Creek' series.
