While teenage werewolf Kalix MacRinnalch is being pursued through the streets of London by murderous hunters, her sister, the Werewolf Enchantress, is busy designing clothes for the Fire Queen. Meanwhile, in the Scottish Highlands, the MacRinnalch Clan is plotting and feuding after the head of the clan suddenly dies intestate. As the court intrigue threatens to blow up into all-out civil war, the competing factions determine that Kalix is the swing vote necessary to assume leadership of theclan. Unfortunately, Kalix isn't really into clan politics -- laudanum's more her thing. Even more unfortunately, Kalix is the reason the head of the clan ended up dead, which is why she's now on the lam in London. . . This expansive tale of werewolves in the modern world -- friendly werewolves, fashionista werewolves, troubled teenage werewolves, cross-dressing werewolves, werewolves of every sort -- is hard-edged, hilarious, and utterly believable.

If you're a werewolf fan go ahead and read it. The quality is decent for that sub-genre.

A guilty secret read. Overall it's a poor book with paper thin characters consisting of the bare minimum of motivations and male characters so devoid of character they are best described as plot pieces not characters. Personally the book would have been better if it had stuck with either Kalix or her sister Trix(?) but not both. Trix is a walking Mary Sue, in that she is perfect in almost every conceivable way which gets a bit tiring. Kalix is more interesting in that she is deeply flawed, but so little movement occurs in her attempts to fix those flaws (because we spend half the time with Trix) that the only thing she actually accomplishes by the end of the book is somehow getting to live rent free in an apartment with the only two college students who aren't worried about money.

It took me a while to get into this book; because it's partly written from the perspective of a mostly illiterate 17-year-old, the narrative is somewhat stilted at times. However, as the pace picked up and one incident collided into another, both plot and character development grabbed my attention. I found the ending amorphous and unsatisfying.

With all of the unique characters, this was a great book! It never bored. If you like werewolves and beings from other realms - you will love this one!

My favourite of Millar's books, I didn't want it to end.
