Curse of the Wolf Girl by Martin Millar

Scottish teenage werewolf Kalix MacRinnalch is in London trying to settle down and live a normal life. Her new friends support her as she goes to college to learn to read and write, she is struggling with college and staying alive due to her old enemies that won’t leave her alone. Many powerful werewolves want Kalix dead, and the Guild of Werewolves Hunters is still dedicated to wiping out the entire MacRinnalch clan.

Life might be easier if Kalix’s family was able to help, but her sister, the Enchantress needs all her powers to locate the perfect pair of high heels, her brother Markus is busy in Scotland organising an Opera, and her cousin Dominil is engaged in her own merciless vendetta. Kalix must carry on alone, but she’s finding it difficult enough to pay the rent without having to deal with werewolf hunters and exams at the same time.

This fantasy novel which is a lot different from the usual books about werewolves that is out there.  It did take me a while to get into this book and I think I may have benefited more if I had perhaps read the first novel Lonely Werewolf Girl to get more background information to the story. So if you are expecting this to be like Twilight you will be disappointed. This is an interesting idea and a unique werewolf novel.

Martin Millar was born in Scotland and now lives in London. He is the author of such novels as Lonely Werewolf Girl and The good Fairies of New York. Under the pseudonym of Martin Scott the first book in his Thraxas series won the World Fantasy Award in 2000. As Martin Millar and as Martin Scott he has been widely translated.
