9780349400556: The Anxiety of Kalix the Werewolf (Werewolf Girl)

Now eighteen, Scottish teenage werewolf Kalix MacRinnalch is settling in London, though she still struggles with anxiety, depression, and self-abuse. Her new friends support her – and all is fine until the Guild of Werewolf Hunters start picking off her clan, one by one.

Most of the Scottish Werewolf Clan have a very low opinion of Kalix Macrinnalch, youngest daughter of the Thane. There is little sympathy for her illiteracy, her substance abuse, her self-harming, her eating disorder, her anxiety and depression and her propensity for extreme violence. Safe from her clan in London, and living with two friendly students, she's been much calmer. If only she were allowed to live quietly, she might get on top of her problems.

Unfortunately, that's difficult for the young werewolf. She's still the number one target for the werewolf hunters, and they're stepping up their efforts to find her. And no matter how Kalix tries to make her life more normal, there will always come a time when, under threat, her insanity and battle-madness will descend on her, and the skinny young girl will again transform into the most feared and ferocious werewolf in the country.

About the Author:

Martin Millar was born in Scotland and now lives in London. He is the author of such novels as Lonely Werewolf Girl, Curse of the Wolf Girl and The Good Fairies of New York. Under the pseudonym of Martin Scott, he, as the Guardian put it, invented a new genre: pulp fantasy noir.” Thraxas, the first book in his Thraxas series, won the World Fantasy Award in 2000. As Martin Millar and as Martin Scott, he has been widely translated.

From Booklist:

In the brilliant third entry in Millar’s Kalix Werewolf series (Curse of the Wolf Girl, 2010), Kalix MacRinnalch—the laudanum-addicted, self-destructive youngest daughter of the ruling Scottish werewolf clan, turns over a new leaf. Living in London with university students Daniel and Moonglow, and Vex, heir to the throne of elemental Fire Queen Malveria, Kalix has embarked on a self-improvement scheme involving eating, exercising, cutting down on self-cutting, and improving her literacy skills. She even finds a new boyfriend. When she makes a trip back to Scotland with her very proper (for a werewolf) cousin to kick the laudanum habit, however, they find the werewolf enchantress who was going to help them slain by werewolf hunters of the Avenaris Guild. With Kalix intent on taking out the guild, the action heats up as Queen Malveria’s greatest rival, the Empress of the Hainusta, provides assistance to the guild. Millar uses frequent fast breaks between scenes set in different dimensions and various locales to keep the action moving in this humorous, if violent, romp featuring quirky characters and situations. --Diana Tixier Herald
