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!!!
If you think werewolves are your thing, do yourself a favor and start with the first volume. If you enjoy that one, I think you'll like Curse of the Wolf Girl. Otherwise, skip it.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
