I’m only including the cast from book 1 so there are no spoilers here.
Natalya “Nat” Stravinsky – Nat will be the first to admit that she’s not the best werewolf in New Jersey. But the one thing you don’t do is cross her family–or touch her precious and lovingly collected hoard of holiday trinkets. She’s up to her paws in ornaments, ugly Christmas sweaters, and such, but she still has dreams and hopes. Most of them include Thorn Grantham, her ex-boyfriend. She works, a little too much, as a clerk at the Bend of the River Flea Market. Her boss, Bill, is the crankiest goblin in Jersey.
Alexander “Sasha” Stravinsky – Nat’s younger brother is a great guy and is always there to support his sister–when he’s not scoping out the next potential date.
Anna Stravinsky – Nat’s mother. She is great cook who cooks a bit too much.
Grandma Lasovskaya – Nat’s grandmother. Her mother’s mom. Grandma helps hold the family together. She has loved Nat, no matter what faults she has had. Everybody needs a babushka like Grandma Lasovskaya.
Fyodor Stravinsky – As the patriarch of the Stravinsky family, Nat’s dad has a wide girth and a trunk load of secrets that may come back to haunt the family someday.
