Explaining a Millar book takes a long time and requires a good deal of patience from your listener/reader. Suffice to say, this book fucking rules!
It is hilarious, violent, and insightful: proof that a so-called fantasy novel can plumb the depths of human (well, and other beings) emotions, friendship, love, and interaction just as well as "literature"--and have killer werewolf battles to boot.
Basic set up:

1) The youngest daughter of the ruling Scottish werewolf clan has attacked and killed their Thane, or leader, who is also her father. Kalix, addicted to laudunum and depressed over the banishment of her lover Gawain, escapes to London where she is hunted by various factions.

2) Kalix's mother plots to support the younger brother, Markus, for the new Thane despite tradition saying it should go to the traditional Sarapen, the eldest.

3) Kalix is found by two college students, Moonglow and Daniel, who stay involved despite the ungrateful, wild young werewolf's bad behavior--oh, and the danger of mixing in the affairs of werewolfs, of course.

4) Meanwhile, Kalix's older sister, Thrix, tries to stay away from the family and run her fashion house. Her main client is a fire elemental queen called Malveria--and she is the funniest character in the book.

5) There's a ton of other stuff but that should be enough to be getting on with.
