By TJ Klune
Important Note: I’ve never read the same book twice……until now. I have read the entire WOLFSONG series and I’ve finished book 1 for the second reading! That should be a clue of how good it is!
Anne Rice used VAMPIRES and ANGELS in some of her books as the characters that were different and feared, TJ Klune uses WOLVES and MAGIC!
T K is an excellent writer. The first time I read Book 1, I kept reading until I finished the series just to find out how it ended! The second time around, I’m discovering how much I missed in the details the first time!! The stories are multilayered and detailed and as some have said before me, “The truth is in the details.”.
NEED to know facts about the series:
- In the information section about the author: TJ, being queer himself believes it’s important—-now more than ever to have accurate, positive queer representation in stories.
- There are some passages that are sexually explicit. If that bothers you, I’d recommend just skipping over those few and read the series for the great writing it is! *
There was a time when authors could not reveal their true nature such as whether they were male or female. Theses days that’s not a problem, but addressing their nationality, gender preference or any other personal information might affect book sales. That many authors are willing to sacrifice book sales to be truthful speaks well of the quality of the authors of today!
I agree with Mr. Klune that it is important to have accurate positive representation in stories and all literature! I know when I was growing up it would have made a huge difference in my comfort and self esteem to read about people like me in a positive character presentation!!
We’ve come a long way as a society but WE ARE NOT THERE YET!!!!
