The Awakening (In the Shadow of the Moonlight) - Review

In the Shadow of the Moonlight - The AwakeningIn the Shadow of the Moonlight - The Awakening by J.J. Bidell
Published August 21st 2011 by Elke Becker
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Naomi Roberts finally receives a scholarship for a semester abroad in Maine. When Naomi’s grandmother suddenly claims that Naomi will soon be transformed into a panther, like her great grandmother Romina, Naomi believes it is a final and desperate attempt to keep her from departing to the USA.

Having arrived in Maine, Naomi enjoys her student life with new friends and her first love, Roman. Even though she feels magically drawn to a mysterious clearing in the woods, believes she is being watched and begins to sleepwalk, she does not remember the prophecy of her grandmother. Until her very first transformation. 
And - Naomi is not alone, which not only exposes her to mortal danger, but also Roman.

This book here, is a hidden gem.

It's a great introduction to what I hope is a new series, here's hoping since it does leave a lot unanswered questions.
Such as: What?

So many questions: who else is a cat person? do they actually have a name for what they are?
What happened to the people in the story in the prologue?
And so so many more.
Such as: were some of them already answered in the book that I didn't notice since I was so into it?

It's somewhat simple and the beginning is pretty slow but the end is very much worth it

Again it's a great start to what I'm sure will become a great and very favorite series.
