If you haven’t read ‘Lonely Werewolf Girl’, do yourself a favour and go out and get it! Especially if you like dry humour (think of something akin to “My Family” on BBC) and you enjoy the supernatural (Werewolves, Fairies, Fire Elementals…).
Martin Millar is an amazing writer, who not only knows how to create an entire world filled with all kinds of characters that you would never have imagined, but he has the wittiest dialog I have ever come across in a story. The world he has created in “Lonely Were Wolf Girl” and “Curse of the Wolf Girl” is satire at its finest!
It had me in complete hysterics from beginning to end. I’d often find myself thinking, “This is utterly ridiculous!” but that is what the story is, it is RIDICULOUS, in the absolute best way imaginable!
The tale follows the depressed young werewolf girl, Kalix, as she tries to get her life in order. She has been banned from the MacRinnalch Castle, her home in Scotland, and is now living with her two human friends, Moonglow and Daniel, and one young Fire Elemental, Agrivex. These four characters alone are an interesting mix. But when you bring in the Fire Queen, Thrix the Enchantress, Dominil, the white-haired werewolf, Beautix and Delix, the twin werewolf musicians, and Markus, the cross-dressing Thane, you can really only imagine what kind of craziness will ensue!
It is absolutely BRILLIANT!
