Kallix, a morose, laudanum-addicted, unschooled, slightly anorexic werewolf is still on the run. The youngest daughter of the Thane of the MacRinnalch Clan of werewolves, held responsible unfairly for the death of the Thane, and justifiably responsible for the deaths of a great many other werewolves, remains prohibited from returning to Scotland in order to maintain the uneasy peace that temporarily prevails in court, despite the endemic debauchery and degeneracy always threatening to again spiral out of control. Frankly, things aren't much better for her in London than in Scotland. The love of her life is in hiding and her enemies increase in number by the day. Strong as she is when enraged, it's becoming ever more dangerous to be her. Daniel and Moonglow, her two human friends, do what they can to keep her hidden in plain sight (who would look for a werewolf in a remedial program for high school dropouts?) and keep her fed. Millar is a true world-creator, populating Curse of the Wolf Girl with a universe of characters: Fashion-designing werewolves, cross-dressing werewolves, and neurotic, psychotic, and erotic werewolves, as well as fairies, Fire Elementals, and good ole humans whipping them in faster and faster revolutions with his thrilling, vertiginous rollercoaster narrative.

wow. hard to describe this. I'd recommend reading the book. who knew they paid narrators with speech impediments? some of the voices were good but half were terrible. no idea how to convey sarcasm or wry/dry humor (essential to Millar e,g, Dominil). Unless you like the idea of a fire elemental that sounds like count chocula - don't listen. and that lisp - just awful. I love the series and Millars humor. It's too bad they couldn't find someone better.
love them all
Never. Unless joined by a group of friends and some mind altering substances in a padded room so the neighbors wouldn't hear the raucous laughter and snorting
The books in this series are great! (there are 3 to date) - each one really good. can't wait for the next. this is the middle one which doesn't really matter except for the terrible narration.
"book for a rainy day"
Top, becaue there are no other Martin Millar books in audible so far.
Every Martin Milar book is amazing - makes you feel good, so they are books for a rainy day, indeed.
No particular character stood out, everything was great.
I wanted it to last as long as possible, so I listened to it in very small doses.
Please get more Martin Millar books to audible, and while at it, get his other book series Thraxas which he publishes as Martin Scott, as well.
"Great book...but 2nd in series b4 u buy it!"
Quirky, hilarious, amazing
I love Moonglow as she's so positive and supportive and long suffering!
Um, slightly odd reading...not quite comfortable to listen too but you get used to it after a while. Quite good at all the accents but with so many Scottish accents some of them do drift into Irish and geordie a bit!
I've always loved this series of books and this is my favourite. So funny and involving, you really feel for the characters.
Wonderful story! I've been waiting for this seris for ages...not sure why audible released the 2nd nook of 3 1st???????? Will make my day when books 1 and 3 are finally available!
