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.

Great story... even if long winded... excellent reading... while impersonating different characters, styles and accents...
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
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.
Who was your favorite character and why?
love them all
Would you be willing to try another one of Kat Rose-Martin’s performances?
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
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
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.

The book is a little all over the place - especially at the beginning - but once it gets going its off to the races. It makes you care about its diverse cast of characters and takes you on a fun journey through their lives.
As a rule audiobooks have been a second best replacement to me for visual reading, but this one is an exception. Kat Rose-Martin's performance is delicious candy that leaves me wanting more.
