Kallix, a morose, laudanum-addicted, unschooled, slightly anorexic werewolf is still on the run. The youngest daughter of the Thane of the MacRinnalch Clan of werewolves, held responsible unfairly for the death of the Thane, and justifiably responsible for the deaths of a great many other werewolves, remains prohibited from returning to Scotland in order to maintain the uneasy peace that temporarily prevails in court, despite the endemic debauchery and degeneracy always threatening to again spiral out of control. Frankly, things aren’t much better for her in London than in Scotland. The love of her life is in hiding and her enemies increase in number by the day. Strong as she is when enraged, it’s becoming ever more dangerous to be her. Daniel and Moonglow, her two human friends, do what they can to keep her hidden in plain sight (who would look for a werewolf in a remedial program for high school dropouts?) and keep her fed. Millar is a true world-creator, populating Curse of the Wolf Girl with a universe of characters: fashion-designing werewolves, cross-dressing werewolves, and neurotic, psychotic, and erotic werewolves, as well as fairies, Fire Elementals, and good ole humans whipping them in faster and faster revolutions with his thrilling, vertiginous rollercoaster narrative.

Martin Millar is the author of the Thraxas series; The Good Fairies of New York; Lonely Werewolf Girl; Suzy Led Zeppelin, and Me; and Milk, Sulphate, and Alby Starvation. He lives in London.From Booklist:
Kalix, the depressed laudanum addicted teen werewolf from Lonely Werewolf Girl (2008), is still living in London with university students Daniel and Moonglow, and now she’s also enrolled. Kalix’s mother, the Mistress of Werewolves, is paying for her to stay with the poverty-stricken students as long as they can get her to attend her remedial classes. Vex, Queen Malveria’s soon-to-be-adopted niece, has also moved in while going to the same school, where she awards herself gold stars for her poems about life as a fire elemental. Meanwhile the guild that is dedicated to the destruction of werewolves is getting bolder as one of its members starts up a romantic relationship with Thrix, Kalix’s fashion designer/werewolf/sorceress sister. While Malveria obsesses about fashion and her rival, others plot to overthrow them and steal their kingdoms. Mayhem is bound to ensue when all the players are drawn to Scotland by a fund-raising opera taking place at the same time as a Yum Yum Sugary Snacks gig. Wildly imaginative, this gore-splattered yet hilarious romp is vastly entertaining. --Diana Tixier Herald
