 Fast-paced, occasionally confusing, but never dull: a sequel to the punk fantasy Elsewhere (1991) recounting the further adventures of teenager Ron and his friends--other human runaways, elves, and those of mixed blood. Known as ``Wolfboy'' since the lovely elf Leda put a spell on him, Ron is trying to adjust to his new shape and to find love (or sex) in the ever-shifting power struggles on the border between the World and Faerie. But even love takes a back seat to the nonstop kidnappings, false accusations of murder, and motorcycle gangs, and to the deadly search for the true heir to Faerie, who has the disconcerting habit of being two ages at once, in the same time and place. Though it doesn't stand well alone, this has the same witty adolescent verve and vulnerability--plus a message concerning peace among those who are really different. (Fiction. 14+)
