Synopsis

While teenage werewolf Kalix MacRinnalch is being pursued through the streets of London by murderous hunters, her sister, the Werewolf Enchantress, is busy designing clothes for the Fire Queen. Meanwhile, in the Scottish Highlands, the MacRinnalch Clan is plotting and feuding after the head of the clan suddenly dies intestate. As the court intrigue threatens to blow up into all-out civil war, the competing factions determine that Kalix is the swing vote necessary to assume leadership of the clan. Unfortunately, Kalix isn’t really into clan politics — laudanum’s more her thing. Even more unfortunately, Kalix is the reason the head of the clan ended up dead, which is why she’s now on the lam in London. . . This expansive tale of werewolves in the modern world — friendly werewolves, fashionista werewolves, troubled teenage werewolves, cross-dressing werewolves, werewolves of every sort — is hard-edged, hilarious, and utterly believable.

Along the way Martin Millar also manages to tell the story of how Kalix goes from being a lonely werewolf girl so filled with self loathing that she cuts herself and suffers anxiety attacks if she's treated well, to a werewolf girl with friends who make her realize that she's not such a bad sort ...

(There is some debate as to what happens to a werewolf's clothes after they change from human to wolf, and more specifically, what they do about their clothing situation when they convert back to being a human).

The Bookbag

I started reading at speed as I was enjoying so much - but the final quarter or so of the book did go on rather - and even when the conclusion came, it was far from satisfactory - perhaps leaving the way open for a sequel?

But for the younger or less experienced reader who reads, and naturally love's Ender's Game :) , I'd suggest Ender's Shadow, which is a "parallel novel" covering the same timeline as the original but focusing in on the lives and viewpoints of other characters.

He understands perfectly the petty jealousies between brothers, the first love of teenagers, the unrequited longing of one good friend for another, and the nervousness of a lonely werewolf girl trying to forge her first friendships.

If your idea of goth is The Mission and The Sisters Of Mercy rather than My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy then Lonely Werewolf Girl could be the answer to Twilight for you – albeit without the vampires.
