|Kalix MacRinnalch is still in London with her laudanum habit.
Shes now living with human friends, university students Daniel and Moonglow, and
shes also enrolled in college in remedial classes. Vex, Queen Malverias
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.
Kalixs fashion designer/werewolf/sorceress sister has started a relationship with a
member of the werewolf hunter guild. Her brother, the new Thane, has a penchant for cross
dressing and ends up juggling women and his official duties. Queen Malveria obsesses about
fashion and her rival, while others plot to overthrow all them and steal their kingdoms.
The cousins are still making very poor music in London's underground scene. And the
white haired wolf is being stalked by a man she spurned in college. When Kalixs
former lover is murdered, it begins a chain of events that brings everyone together for a
bloody showdown at a Scottish castle where a charity opera event is taking place
This is the sequel to Lonely Werewolf Girl and you really
need to read the first book as there are many characters. Kalix is still as angsty and
depressed as ever and her college life, along with the drama of being hunted by some enemy
werewolves is driving her anxiety level WAY up. Kalix is broody and gritty, a really nice
change of pace for what a stereotypical main character should be. This is a book for both
teenage and adults, offering a fun ride in Martin Millars demented world.
