A series of novels by Creator/MartinMillar who also wrote the award-winning ''TheGoodFairiesOfNewYork''. A teenage werewolf named Kalix is alone in London, and the best case scenario for a lone werewolf is to stay hidden. Otherwise hunters tend to come after you. Of course, Kalix has just sold the charm that was designed to keep her hidden, because she lacks any skills that would allow her to hold down a job, and has a laudanum addiction. What's worse is that a new vote has come around for the new leader of the clan and, whether she's there or not, she has a seat on that council, and will until she dies. When it comes down to a tie, the council has a problem, and when you hold a seat for life, people start thinking the obvious.
