Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Kalix the emo berserker werewolf makes a moody return in Millar's witty, chaotic sequel to 2008's Lonely Werewolf Girl. Offered an allowance by her mother if she does well at remedial college, Kalix is soon distracted by the murder of her former lover. She's determined to get to the bottom of the murder but soon discovers that, in addition to being a laudanum-addicted, anorexic cutter, she's much better at mass slaughter than investigating. Only after a series of seemingly unrelated subplots come together does she stand a chance at vengeance. Millar introduces a cast of thousands, including fashion-obsessed fire elemental royalty, a werewolf sorceress, and would-be werewolf rock stars, deftly weaving together a myriad of subplots as the narrative hurtles toward the conclusion. The dialog reads like a good British sitcom, and if the characters are somewhat shallow, it has the odd effect of making their personal revelations more poignant by the end. (Aug.) (c)

From Booklist

Kalix, the depressed laudanum addicted teen werewolf from Lonely Werewolf Girl (2008), is still living in London with university students Daniel and Moonglow, and now she’s also enrolled. Kalix’s mother, the Mistress of Werewolves, is paying for her to stay with the poverty-stricken students as long as they can get her to attend her remedial classes. Vex, Queen Malveria’s 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. Meanwhile the guild that is dedicated to the destruction of werewolves is getting bolder as one of its members starts up a romantic relationship with Thrix, Kalix’s fashion designer/werewolf/sorceress sister. While Malveria obsesses about fashion and her rival, others plot to overthrow them and steal their kingdoms. Mayhem is bound to ensue when all the players are drawn to Scotland by a fund-raising opera taking place at the same time as a Yum Yum Sugary Snacks gig. Wildly imaginative, this gore-splattered yet hilarious romp is vastly entertaining. --Diana Tixier Herald

First book was great hope the second will be as good.
Deborah P. Bradshaw
The developments are interesting, but almost all of the characters are so unlikeable, one doesn't really care.
Scott R
This is a great book and I recommend it for both fans of supernatural fiction and action/adventure stories.

Lonely Werewolf Girl has been a favorite of mine for a few years now and I have been wondering if Martin Millar was going to delve into his off-beat, whimsical world of fantasy again so I was overjoyed to find this as an available ARC to review! I had no clue it was even in the making! I did get a little scared that this book would under whelm or let me down since it's predecessor was such a wonderful literature adventure for me, but I was happily proven wrong with Curse Of The Wolf Girl.

This sequel is more of a continuation of the turmoil and mayhem that our favorite characters from LWG struggled with in the first book. I love that Millar's characters have progressed in there lives yet have maintained the same familiarity that we loved so much about them in the first book. 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. I love that Kalix is so broody and gritty. She isn't sunshine and roses. She is the polar opposite of that and that is a really nice change of pace for what a stereotypical main character should be.

The strength of this novel, along with Millar's other work's, lies mainly in his ability to make a reader laugh. His character's are funny. They are quirky and all-together wacked out of there minds. I love the diversity of the characters. From the werewolf pack's to the enchantress fashionista sister to the normal human beings who Kalix is surrounded by...there is such a mish-mosh of random characters to fall in love with, loath and just wonder about for hours! I was very happy with this second novel about Kalix and I recommend anyone who hasn't read Lonely Werewolf Girl to go out, buy a copy and enjoy every second of it before getting this!!!

Format: Paperback
There are two things I need to be quite explicit about in introducing Martin Millar's "Curse of the Wolf Girl." (1) "Curse" is a dense volume that is very much a sequel (or direct continuation) of Millar's epic "Lonely Werewolf Girl." If you have not read the previous book, you really might be at a total loss plunging into the dozens of characters that populate both volumes. (2) I think Martin Millar is a comic genius. "Lonely Werewolf Girl" is one of the smartest, funniest, and most unusual werewolf larks you're likely to encounter. Developed along the same lines as "A Lion in Winter," the ambitious tale dissects a royal werewolf family and pits them in a brutal battle to establish clan leadership. It is epic in scope and one of the more remarkable family sagas to come out of any genre. Really. And on top of that--it's crazy funny.

Now that's out of my system, I feel better. "Curse of the Wolf Girl" is an irresistible sequel. Picking up directly after the events of its predecessor, things appear to have calmed down with a new ruler in place. But this dysfunctional family is headed for more chaos and calamity. Kalix, the titular wolf girl, is trying her hand in remedial classes. Her fashion designer sister is romancing a werewolf hunter. Her brother, with a penchant for cross dressing, ends up juggling women and his official duties. The Fire Queen faces a possible political coup in her realm. 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 a principle character is found murdered, it is a catalyst that begins a chain of events that brings everyone together for a climatic showdown.

Martin Miller stole my fan-itude (yea I said fan-itude) with Lonely Werewolf Girl, there was so much plot, so many amazing in depth characters and such a kick a** story how could I not become a fan? Then I read The Good Fairies of New York and soon realized that this author was the real deal. All of his books have an eclectic taste to them, yet appeal to a good sized audience. When I heard that there was going to be a follow up to Lonely Werewolf Girl I could not believe my good luck... a sequel! This book is Curse of the Wolf Girl and I can honestly say it was a great sequel.

Kalix's (and everyone else's) Life is still a bunch of drug induced mishaps, crazy family brawl outs and unrequited love. I do recommend reading Lonely Werewolf girl first, yea yea I know it's a thick book, but if you don't you might find yourself searching your memory for just what happened to who and where, along with who isn't in cahoots with whom. Kalix is still living with her friends in a flat in London, but she is also still pursued. Along with the same old same old werewolf clans out to get her, some family and what not, there is also a new 'enemy' to the plot, a family of Fire Elementals due to Kalix's 'relationship' with the heir to their throne. Yikes but Kalix sure does know how to pick them. On top of that Kalix (who is illiterate and still on drugs) is now going to college!

Yes I agree with other readers that the characters are somewhat unlikeable... they are all so miserable and dysfunctional that that's what makes them enjoyable to read! Kalix is so far over with her werewolf ability, lost love, new love, inability to not snap at every living thing, and anger that how can you not enjoy watching her struggle? The same is true for all her family and friends.
