Daughters of the Moon 1: Goddess of the Night by Lynne Ewing
(Started: June 22, 2010; Finished: June 23, 2010)

All Vanessa Cleveland has ever wanted is to be like everyone else and be able to do normal things - like kiss gorgeous Michael Saratoga without disappearing right in front of him. But Vanessa is different, and having to hide her secret makes leading a normal life impossible. 
Now Vanessa is being followed. She doesn't know who's doing it. But she knows why. Her secret has finally been discovered. (From Shelfari)
Review: 5 star, Favorite

I remembered that I found this book in an article in K-Zone on what to read this month. I personally love mythology. I am fascinated by the stories they bring and the adventures of the gods and goddesses. So when I saw this book, I was curious on what story it has beneath those pages. So I grabbed and bought it immediately.

Well, it was a good read. In a way I got hooked with the story and bought book two to book eleven (I haven't got the chance to read the 12th and 13th book. I think they're phased out :( ). 

Basically, it is about four daughters of the moon, daughters of he goddess, Selene, and they need to protect the hope of the people against the primal evil, Atrox. Each book focuses on one daughter and in the first book, it introduces the reader to Vanessa Cleveland who has the gift of Invisibility. The book is all about fighting evil, love, friendship and hope. I can also see that this series also promote women empowerment in a way.

Happy Reading Everyone!
