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, but her old enemies won't leave her alone. Many powerful werewolves want Kalix dead, and the Guild of Werewolf Hunters is still dedicated to wiping out the entire MacRinnalch werewolf clan. Life might be easier for Kalix if her werewolf family were able to help, but her sister the Enchantress needs all of her sorcerous 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 with her enemies. Kalix must carry on alone but she's finding it difficult enough to pay the rent and cope with her anxiety and depression, while struggling with werewolf hunters and exams at the same time...

Review

Curse of the Wolf Girl, the sequel to Lonely Werewolf Girl was a good, strong follow up for continuing the series created by Millar earlier this year. It was great that this sequel was published in the same year as the first book as I hate waiting for the next book in a series to come out to find out what is going to happen. I definitely like as entertained by Millar’s writing. Millar’s eccentric characters and the ridiculous situations they find themselves in keeps the reader entertained and move the story along nicely.

Unlike the Lonely Werewolf Girl, there is less fighting and danger in Curse as we get to see the character we got to know grow and develop further. Some readers may find that it isn’t as exciting as the first in the series because of this, but I liked getting to know the characters better and can see how this will lead up to a climax of epic proportions in the next book.

Those who enjoyed Lonely Werewolf Girl will want to pick up its sequel Curse of the Wolf Girl, as will fans of Christopher Moore’s writing.
