Shadow’s Edge (A Night Prowler Novel #1) by J.T. Geissinger (June 2012)

The Ikati — a legendary species of half panther, half human creatures who, in their most powerful incarnations, can shift from one to the other, and to vapor — are the alluring players in this paranormal romance.  The world creation is good, it draws you in.  I really couldn’t put the book down, the first half.  The second half, I started realizing that the characters needed more complexity to really invest in them, and the language was getting too intentionally swooning.  I read the galley I picked up at BEA, so perhaps the finished book edited some of that out.  I enjoyed the story and the fantasy world, nevertheless, and will be buying the 2nd in the series, coming out in October, for the library.
