Fins

Category : Book Notices:Author: T

  Fins
          Tera Lynn Childs

   ├Forgive My Fins
   └Fins Are Forever





Lily Sanderson has a secret, and it's not that she has a huge crush on gorgeous swimming god Brody Bennett, who makes her heart beat flipper-fast. Unrequited love is hard enough when you're a normal teenage girl, but when you're half human, half mermaid, like Lily, there's no such thing as a simple crush.

Lily's mermaid identity is a secret that can't get out, since she's not just any mermaid―she's a Thalassinian princess. When Lily found out three years ago that her mother was actually a human, she finally realized why she didn't feel quite at home in Thalassinia, and she's been living on land and going to Seaview High School ever since, hoping to find where she truly belongs. Sure, land has its problems―like her obnoxious biker-boy neighbor, Quince Fletcher―but it has that one major perk: Brody. The problem is, mermaids aren't really the casual dating type―the instant they "bond," it's for life.

When Lily's attempt to win Brody's love leads to a tsunami-sized case of mistaken identity, she is in for a tidal wave of relationship drama, and she finds out, quick as a tailfin flick, that happily ever after never sails quite as smoothly as you planned.

Fins Are Forever

Category : Book Notices:Author: T
Fins Are Forever






  Fins Are Forever
          Tera Lynn Childs






On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl―still a mergirl, true, but signing the renunciation will ink Princess Waterlily of Thalassinia out of existence. That leaves plain old Lily living on land, dating the boy she loves, and trying to master this being-human thing once and for all.

Now that Lily and Quince are together, mer bond or not, she’s almost content to give up her place in the royal succession of Thalassinia. But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, the waves start to get rough. Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody?

The seafoam on the raging surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up―Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle. Will she find a way to reconcile her love, her duty, and her own dreams?

Tera Lynn Childs’s sequel to Forgive My Fins offers another tail-flicking romance with plenty of fun, sun, and underwater adventure.

Punk Knits: 26 Hot New Designs for Anarchistic Souls and Independent Spirits

Category : Book Notices:Author: S
PunkKnits.jpg




  Punk Knits: 26 Hot New Designs for Anarchistic Souls and Independent Spirits
          Share Ross






Rocker/knitter/author: Share Ross personifies the indie spirit driving both knitting and music today

Share Ross is addicted to the needle―the knitting needle. A few years back, this punk guitarist and singer wouldn’t have given knitting a second thought. She is a dyed-in-the-wool rocker, and knitting . . . well, knitting was for grannies. Then a friend showed up at her house wearing a scarf that she found totally amazing. When Ross asked her where she’d gotten it, she said she’d knit it herself. Ross was hooked.

With Punk Knits, Ross shares her passion and unorthodox approach to the ancient craft she’s so grateful our grannies preserved. All of the 26 designs―beginner- to intermediate--level projects that include arm- and leg-warmers, scarves, miniskirts, hats, and sweaters―draw their inspiration from the style and independent spirit of rock ’n’ roll legends like Sid Vicious, Debbie Harry, Patti Smith, and the New York Dolls, and they’re all modeled by pierced and tattooed Hollywood rock ’n’ rollers and scenesters.

If you think knitting can’t be punk, consider this from Ross: “Knitting can be as artistic as you want. You can make a statement. And by knitting garments instead of buying them, you can snub the corporations that strip away your individuality.” So what’s not punk about knitting?




タイトルどおり、Punk Knitting!の本。
パンクなデザインの編み物を紹介してる本です。
表紙のアナーキーマークからすでにウズウズします。

Drama!

  DRAMA!
          Paul Ruditis

   ├The Four Dorothys
   ├Entrances and Exits
   ├Show, Don't Tell
   └Everyone's a Critic





Every performance needs a little scandal and . . .

DRAMA!

Spawned from Hollywood's A-list glitterati, nearly every student at the exclusive Orion Academy is a singer, dancer, model, or actor -- with the ego to match. So how do you fit so many budding stars into one school musical?

Multi-cast, of course. It's a Wizard of Oz like no other: four Dorothys, two Scarecrows, two Glindas, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Every "star" gets a moment in the spotlight.

Meanwhile, Bryan Stark, narrator extraordinaire, needs to shed some light on a more scandalous plot. Dorothys are mysteriously dropping out of the show, one after the other. If Bryan doesn't figure out why, there may be no one left to click her heels by opening night. . . .




Drama!シリーズ。
演劇系に特化したセレブ学校オリオンアカデミーを舞台にした学園モノ。

主人公は、
………意外にもブライアンという演劇部に所属する男です。(ゲイです。っていう情報はいらないか。笑)
主人公なんだけど、けっこう周りに起こる事件の傍観者的な語り部に徹してる感じの役回り。なので、彼の一人称で話が進みます(1冊目は。2冊目以降は、読んでないのでわからないけど。)。


演劇部でオズの魔法使いをやることになり、4人のドロシーが抜擢されるも、ドロシー役の子に次々と事件が起こり始めて、一体誰が犯人なのかブライアンが観察を始めます。
というちょっとした学園ミステリーモノ。(1冊目は)

本屋で表紙に目を惹かれて(オズの魔法使い好きなので)、気になって読んでみた本です。
面白かったです。

演劇が中心になってる話なので、ドラマ見てないけどGleeとかああいう雰囲気がちょっとあります。
英語の辞書より文中に登場する作品やシーンなんかをYou Tubeで見たりしてインターネット検索する楽しみのある本かも。

ミュージカルとか劇とかに興味ある人にはオススメ。

ちなみにブライアンの友達の1人にゴスな子がいて、その彼氏もまたいいキャラしてて好きです。

2冊目以降は未読。
続きも気になるんだけど。

Everyone's a Critic

  Everyone's a Critic
          Paul Ruditis






School's out, but the drama never stops at the superposh Orion Academy. Hartley Blackstone -- the famous director, producer, choreographer, and genuine Broadway icon -- has chosen Orion to hold auditions for one lucky guy and girl to attend his summer theater program in New York City.
Naturally, every wannabe-It girl and boy at Orion is going mad, prepping to win Blackstone's approval. With any luck, it could be Bryan and his BFF, Sam, stepping onto a Broadway stage.

But Mr. Blackstone, known for his notoriously harsh critiques, is capable of crushing hearts and shattering dreams with a single word. Bryan will need more than his snarky wit and cute smile for this one. He's got to bring it!

Now if he could just figure out exactly what it is....

  Show, Don't Tell
          Paul Ruditis






Every performance needs a little scandal and...
Drama!
The Renaissance Faire has come to town! Okay, so the exclamation point doesn't make it any cooler, but Sam is overjoyed to reunite with her former faire folk (say that ten times fast). Bryan, on the other hand, can do without all the "thees," "thous," and -- oh yes -- man tights. But he'd best take part in the festivities lest he lose his head...with Sam doing the chopping.
As if that weren't dramatic enough, someone has discovered Bryan's not-so-closeted secret. And it might be time for Bryan to step of the role he's been playing for years. It's a Malibu drama geek stuck with a wannabe King Arthur's dork...er, court, and he's got a major secret to tell. You don't want to miss the show....




Drama!シリーズの3冊目。

  Entrances and Exits
          Paul Ruditis






It's time for the Fall One-Act Festival, and Hope gets the honored privilege of debuting her very first original play! With Bryan directing and Jason and Sam as the leads, it seems as if nothing could go wrong with this dream team of talent. But where's the fun in that?
Enter Sam and Jason's onstage chemistry that's so hot, it's working overtime offstage! Course, Sam's real-life beau, Eric isn't so cool with that. And what about Bryan? With his sexual orientation public knowledge, he's gaining some admiring attention from the most unexpected people. Can you blame them?

With all these raging hormones, it'll be a wonder if the play goes off at all. And the after party? Please - that'll be a show all in itself...

Dark Onesシリーズ。

Category : Foreign Book
In The Company Of Vampires
前回の記事で、昔に読んでたヴァンパイアロマンスシリーズが再録プラスαされて再出版されてたって書いたけど、
さらなる事実が発覚!

『さらなる』続編が存在してた!!(笑)

[その本たちの詳しいことはこっちの記事で。]

彼女が他にヴァンパイアもののDark Onesっていう、シリーズを出してるのに気付いて、チェックしてみた本の主人公は別の名前だったから、また違う話なのね、って思っていたんだけど、
もう1つチェックしたら、同じシリーズなのに、また主人公の名前が違うのに気付いて、
そういえば、その昔読んでたシリーズでも『Dark One』っていう呼び方をしてたのを思い出して、もしやと全部チェックしてみたら、

あったのよね。
その昔読んでたシリーズの主人公が主人公の1冊が。

つまり、そのシリーズの続編なわけで。

前回書いた通り、続編を考えて執筆してたのにレーベルが突然無くなってしまって中断状態で続編が登場しないと思っていたから、
こういう形だけど、続編が登場したのは、本当に嬉しいサプライズだったわ。

当初のペンネームではないペンネームでの出版と、シリーズの1部っていう見つかり難い形ではあって辿り着くまで時間がかかったけど。(両方とも去年の11月に出版。)

発見できたアタシえらい!(笑)

今読んでる本と、待機してる本が3冊くらいあるけど、これは読もうと思います。
ブックリスト作ろう、って思って調べたかいあったってかんじ。

また、タイトルがアタシの好きな映画『Company of Wolves』を文字ったようなタイトルなのがちょっと心ひかれる(笑)

ただ、アタシの中のベンのイメージ、こんなんじゃ全然ないんだけどなぁ(笑)

Dark Ones

Category : Book Notices:Author: K
shapeimage_4_20110629024916.png




  Dark Ones
          Katie Maxwell/Katie MacAlister


   ├Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend
    ├Got Fangs?
    └Circus of the Darned
   └In the Company of Vampires





All sixteen-year-old Francesca Ghetti wants to do is have a normal life where she’s one of the crowd, blending in so no one will know just how much of a freak she is. Dragged to Europe by her mother to join GothFaire, a travelling band of psychics, magicians, and assorted other oddities, Fran has to cope with not only the normal angst of always being a fish out of water, but also with her own fate as a psychometrist.

Enter one Moravian Dark One (referred to by most people as vampires) named Benedikt who claims Fran is the key to redeeming his soul, a mysterious horse who seems to have an involved past, an immortal friend who remembers what Mozart was like, and a demonologist who thinks he’s Elvis, and you can understand why Fran despairs of ever fitting in.

ある特殊能力を持つ少女フランチェスカは、
魔女の母の勤める『ゴスフェア』なる巡業イベントに無理矢理一緒に連れて行かれる。
ヴァンパイアの親友の弟ベンと出会い、興味を持つ。
その頃時をほぼ同じくして、運営資金を盗まれるという事件が発生。
その特殊能力を見込まれ彼女は犯人探しを任されることになるのだが…




ヴァンパイアロマンスモノが流行る何年も前に出版されていた作品で。
『Got Fangs?』が1冊目。
『Circus of the Darned』がその続編。
1冊目で事件は解決しているので、2冊目はまた新たな事件に遭遇し、ヴァイキングなんか出て来て、さらにファンタジックにメチャメチャになっています。(笑)
どちらも、『ゴスフェア』で話が展開して行きます。
その場所のゴスバンドなんか呼んだりして、開かれる『ゴスフェア』は、さながらドイツで開催されるゴスフェスティバルWave-Gothic Treffenのようで、読んでいてちょっと楽しいです。

さらなる続編を予定して執筆していたようなのですが、このシリーズを出版していたこのレーベルが無くなってしまい、
1冊目に残されたベンの謎は、2冊目でもスッキリ解決することはなく、未完のまま終わってしまっています。残念…。

と、思っていたら1冊目と2冊目と、さらに書き下ろしを収録して
『Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend』
confessions2-1.jpg
というタイトルで出版されていて、

さらに、

彼女はKatie MaxwellでヤングアタルトをKatie MacAlisterの名前で他の恋愛小説を書いてるんですが、
MacAlisterの名でヴァンパイアシリーズ『Dark Ones』シリーズを執筆していて。
『In the Company of Vampires』というタイトルで『Dark Ones』シリーズの1冊として、さらなる続編が出版されていました。
In The Company Of Vampires

知らぬ間にベンが元カレになってる(笑)


読まなきゃ(笑)

こんな形(調べるのややこしかったぜ。笑)で続編が出てくれていて、とても嬉しいです。

Dark Onesシリーズは、色んなヴァンパイアを主人公にしたシリーズで、他に8冊くらい出版しているんですが(まだ続いています)、今回はフランチェスカとベンの話が載ってるもののみ取り上げています。

気になった人は、Dark Onesシリーズも探してみてください。

Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend

Category : Foreign Book
confessions2-1.jpg


ここ数日、自分のために本のリストを作っております。
シリーズものだけどちゃんと数字降ってなかったりして、どれが何冊目かわからないケースがままあったり、
最初はハードカバーで発売するからそれをアマゾンのページとかでチェックしてたら、いつの間にかペーパーバック(文庫版みたいなもの)で出版されて最初のハードカバーバージョンは絶版になってチェックしてたページ見れなくて何の本をチェックしてたんだったかな、ってなるし(笑)

ということで、主にアタシのためだけど、
どうせなら似た趣味の人で同じこと思ってる人や、翻訳出てる続きが読みたいけどどれがその続編かわからない人とかのヘルプにもなるし、
それでさらに興味持って読み手が増えたら嬉しいな、とも思ってブログにてリストを作ることに。(サイトよりブログの方が瞬時にグーグル検索に引っかかるようになってるらしくアクセス数が多いから)

::ブックリスト一覧ページ::

そんなこんなで、ちょっと検索とかしていたら、シリーズ途中で終わってしまってた作品が、ちょっと形を変えて再販されてるのを発見したり。
調べるのが大変だってリスト作ってるけど、調べたらそんな新発見パターンもあるものなのね。

それがConfessions of a Vampire's Girlfriendっていう本で、
6、7年前に読んでたTwilightが流行る前に出版されてたヴァンパイアロマンスのヤングアダルトジャンルのシリーズで
『Got Fangs?』と『Circus of the Darnes』の2冊出たところでレーベルが無くなっちゃって、そのまんまになってて、
実は著者のKatieに続きは出ないのか、ってメールしたことがあって(笑)思い入れがあってまだまだ書きたいシリーズだけどレーベルの都合で出せないっていう返事をもらった思い出のあるシリーズだったり(笑)

そして、どうなったかというと、
『Confessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend』というタイトルで、既に出版されてた2冊に書き下ろしの話を付け加えて1冊の本で出版してた、
というのを数日前に発見しました(笑)


すでに収録されてる2冊分を持ってて読んでるだけに、ちょっと複雑な心境ではあるけど(もう持ってるしー、っていう。)、書き下ろしが気になるし、
個人的に思い出の残る作品なので、
これはマストゲットブックだわぁ、ってなってます。すでに未読の本いっぱい転がってる状況にもかかわらず(笑)

ちなみに翻訳出版は、されてませーん。

リストのConfessions of a Vampire's Girlfriend紹介ページ

また、この再販されたバージョン読んだらこの↑この本の紹介ページを更新しようと思ってます。今読んでる本と待機中の本からするに結構先になりそうだけど(笑)

  Heartless
          Gail Carriger






Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant.

Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late? Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf's clothing? And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama's second best closet?

  blameless
          Gail Carriger






Quitting her husband's house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.

Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London's vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.

While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires -- and they're armed with pesto.

  Changeless
          Gail Carriger






Alexia Tarabotti, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears - leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.

But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. Even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can.

She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.


異界族の存在を受け入れた19世紀のロンドン。この地で突然人狼や吸血鬼が牙を失って死すべき人間となり、幽霊たちが消滅する現象がおきた。原因は科学兵器か疫病か、あるいは反異界族の陰謀か。疑われたアレクシア・マコン伯爵夫人は謎を解くため、海軍帰還兵で賑わう霧の都から、未開の地スコットランドへと飛ぶ――ヴィクトリア朝の格式とスチームパンクのガジェットに囲まれて、個性豊かな面々が織りなす懐古冒険奇譚

  Soulless
          Gail Carriger






Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

SOULLESS is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London: full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.


19世紀イギリス、人類が吸血鬼や人狼らと共存する変革と技術の時代。さる舞踏会の夜、われらが主人公アレクシア・タラボッティ嬢は偶然にも吸血鬼を刺殺してしまう。その特殊能力ゆえ、彼女は異界管理局の人狼捜査官マコン卿の取り調べを受けることに。しかしやがて事件は、はぐれ吸血鬼や人狼の連続失踪に結びつく――ヴィクトリア朝の歴史情緒とユーモアにみちた、新世紀のスチームパンク・ブームを導く冒険譚、第一弾

The Graveyard Book

  The Graveyard Book
          Neil Gaiman






It takes a graveyard to raise a child.

Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy―an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack―who has already killed Bod's family.

この子をノーボディと名づけよう―。ある夜、一家が殺害された。たったひとり、生き残ったよちよち歩きの赤ん坊が迷い込んだのは、真夜中の墓地。この日から、墓地の幽霊たちの愛情溢れる、世にも奇妙な子育てが始まった…。幽霊に育てられた少年の冒険と成長を描き、カーネギー賞とニューベリー賞をダブル受賞した、ゲイマンの最高傑作。




有名な映画脚本家だったり作家だったりのニールゲイマンによる児童書。
墓場の幽霊達に育てられたというとんでもな設定のお話。

児童書なので、ところどころ挿絵が入ってますが、挿絵の演出がまた粋な一冊。

とはいえ、未読。(笑)


日本では
『墓場の少年 ノーボディ・オーエンズの奇妙な生活』というタイトルで出版されています。

  Once in a Full Moon
          Ellen Schreiber






Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.

Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves―Legend's Run is famous for them. She's used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend's Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.

Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who's from the wrong side of town. But she can't deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste's hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend's Run.

Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.

  Dead Is Not an Option
          Marlene Perez






It’s springtime of senior year, and psychic sleuth Daisy Giordano is preparing to say goodbye to Nightshade High. But no college acceptance letters have arrived yet, and she’s beginning to worry about where she’ll end up come fall―and if it will be anywhere near her boyfriend, Ryan. But that’s not the only uncertainty Daisy’s dealing with. There’s a vamps-versus-shifters war going on in Nightshade, and things are so tense that there is talk of canceling the prom. The conflict is carrying over to the Giordano home, since Rose and Daisy are both dating werewolves and Poppy’s new boyfriend is a vampire.

Can the paranormal community in Nightshade finally find peace? And will Daisy and her friends survive graduation? All of these questions and more are answered in the latest explosive installment in the Dead Is series.

  Dead Is Just a Rumor
          Marlene Perez






As the creepy little town of Nightshade prepares to celebrate its 200th anniversary―on Halloween, of course―many of its paranormal residents are receiving mysterious blackmail letters. Psychic teen Daisy Giordano and her sisters set out to find out who is behind the threats. But launching an investigation isn’t easy for Daisy with her overprotective father watching her every move. Though she’s is happy to have him back after the years he spent being held captive by an anti-paranormal group called the Scourge, Dad is having difficult time adjusting to home life―and the fact that his little girl is now a senior in high school. He even disapproves of Daisy’s boyfriend, Ryan. Can their relationship take the strain?

And Daisy’s got even more on her plate: A talented amateur chef, she has won cooking lessons with celebrity chef Circe Silvertongue. After nosing around (with a little help from Circe’s pet pig), Daisy begins to suspect the temperamental chef’s secrets aren’t only in her ingredients. . . .

The fourth installment in this favorite series is full of surprises and scares!

Something very strange starts happening in Nightshade the summer that the eldest Giordano sister, Rose, gets a job working at Dr. Franken's research laboratory. People are starting to see double. Doppelgängers of Nightshade residents are popping up all over town. Daisy, Rose and Poppy think it's a coincidence, until the rumors start that their father, who disappeared several years ago, has been spotted in town. Meanwhile, Daisy's beau, Ryan is spending all of his time training for football, and like the other guys on the team, he's grown enormous almost overnight. Samantha Devereux's boyfriend's neck has doubled in size since school ended. Could the football players be resorting to extreme measures to win?

A creepy, campy new mystery series

Welcome to Nightshade, California―a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the psychic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom- shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!

There’s a gorgeous new guy at Nightshade High: Duke Sherrad, a fortune-teller claiming to have descended from Gypsies. Even though she’s psychic herself, Daisy is skeptical of Duke’s powers. But when a teacher who was the subject of one of his predictions ends up dead, she begins to wonder if Duke is the real deal after all.
Maybe if Daisy can track down the teacher’s killer, she can find out the truth. The only trouble is, all signs point to the murderer being of the furry persuasion. Is Daisy any match for a werewolf? Maybe she is . . . in more ways than she bargained for!
