Teenage werewolf Kalix MacRinnalch is pursued through the streets of London by hunters armed with silver bullets, while her sister, the Werewolf Enchantress, is busy designing clothes for the Fire Queen and, in the Scottish Highlands, a feud is brewing.

    jstarwind: This is a bit more "straightforward" of a story than Kalix's Laudenum saturated and impulse driven adventures but the characters are likable and ones you end up feeling a deep connection to.

Adult fiction; fantasy. Light reading; frequent typos but an enjoyable story. Engaging characters; lots of action. ( )

This is a fun book that stays with you long after it's finished.

For the first few chapters I wondered what exactly I'd bought. Millar's writing style is hard to tag and initially I found it distracting but as I let myself listen to the rhythm, I realised that the occasional jerkiness of the text was deliberate.It gives this book a sort of Punk energy that kept me slightly off-centre but always engaged. It's the writer's equivalent of shooting a movie with a hand-held camera, the result is less smooth than using a dolly but it gains a kind of credibility, a sense of really being there, that the fixed camera can't match.

"Lonely Werewolf Girl" is a big book with a large character list and rich back-story. It is filled with humour even though the themes are dark and it rattles along, urging you to keep turning the pages even though you know you should have been asleep an hour ago.

Initially I thought that the lonely werewolf girl of the title was Kalix MacRinnalch, a vulnerable, violent, self-abusive and anti-social young girl who is also brave, passionate and wonderfully unable to understand the world around her.

By the end of book I understood that all of the MacRinnalch women qualify as lonely werewolf girls.

The world that Martin Millar builds is energetic, vivid, quirky and addictive. Thankfully there are two more books in the series. ( )

Oh how I love this book! It's SO SO good! Earnest, sweet, funny, very engaging, sad and chock full of great characters, wacky adventures and unique story lines.

When it comes to the supernatural I've always thought if a writer were going to somehow tie in eating disorders it would be connected to zombies. But in Lonely Werewolf Girl the title character battles depression (among other things) after being thrown out of her house when she lashes out at her father because he and her mother hound her about not eating.

Sounds a bit odd, maybe, and even a bit over the top, but it's not. Martin Millar knows the heart and mind of a teenage girl...and perhaps that's one of the best things about this wonderful book... ( )

I wasn't too sure if I'd like this book - thoughts of it being like the Twilight travesty. However, I really enjoyed it. Interesting characters, good back story, paced well - left me wanting to know more about Kalix and her family. ( )

O Millar è un genio, o il suo pusher ha roba davvero buona. Propendo per la prima alternativa, anche se visti i contenuti anche la seconda non sembra così improbabile.
La trama è avvincente proprio per la sua assurdità, una Londra invasa da lupi mannari con grossi problemi di identità: chi affoga i propri dispiaceri nel laudano, chi cerca di dimenticare la famiglia gettandosi nel mondo della moda, chi è talmente sballato da non ricordarsi nemmeno di essere un lupo mannaro. Sullo sfondo di una lotta per la successione al trono dei lupi, un intreccio di caccia al lupo da parte dell'immancabile nemico, amori travagliati e rock a palla.
Un unico difetto: Millar è un po' carente dal punto di vista della caratterizzazione dei personaggi - tanti anche qui. Sembra che sia concentrato più sul fare che sull'essere e il risultato è che la storia scorre veloce lasciando tra le dita una traccia evanescente.
Il finale mi ha sorpresa: finalmente un romanzo in cui la dura realtà fa da padrona, senza lieto fine a tutti i costi - ma poi chi lo dice che questo fine non sia lieto? ( )
