She finds herself torn between Sebastian, the school soccer star and Ronan, a foreign exchange student who shares her secret. She must uncover the identity behind the mysterious attacker, but is she ready for the entire truth?
Wolf Moon is an exciting yet unnerving legend of evil witches, deadly demons, and werewolf protectors that will stimulate your senses and leave your heart racing.
Maria Grazi Kelly is in the 10th grade at a Catholic school. Her parents passed away when she was just three and her grandmother has raised her as her own. Grazi, a nickname most people refer to her by, leads a fairly typical teenage life. But, things are about to change. One day she's struggling to quietly get through high school and the next day she has the attention of Sebastian, the cutest most popular boy in the school. As if that whole thing isn't confusing enough, her long lost uncle appears and reveals a secret that's been kept from her, her entire life. Maria Grazi Kelly is a werewolf! Her uncle reveals the importance of embracing her change and her role to defeat evil. A young werewolf, named Ronan, travels from Ireland to help Grazi train for the upcoming battle. Grazi begins to come to terms with her transformation, but the startling truth behind her parents' deaths and the recent brutal murders in the area are more than she can handle. What else are those closest to her hiding?
Wolf Moon is well worth the read. I was drawn to Maria and the strife between her snobby cousin and aunt (and ultimately relieved when Maria's grandmother finally puts them in their place) as we have all faced these types of people at one time or another. I think creating Maria as a down to earth teen with similar high school problems like many of those who will read this story is very effective. Being able to identify with Maria keeps readers from being shocked by her transformation and instead leaves them pulling for her gain control and battle to victory. The vivid detail and well organized plot make Wolf Moon an enjoyable and unforgettable read.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
