Overview

There’s an ill wind blowing in Santa Fe, and it’s touching every witch Adriel knows, including White Feather, who is far more important to Adriel than just any warlock. In search of answers, she delves into ancient magic, a family secret and dangerous religious rituals.

Adriel will go to the ends of the earth to keep those she loves safe, but if she lures the enemy away, will she be able to save herself? Her only hope is to use earth magic to hide from the very air she breathes as she hunts down an unseen and untenable evil.

    Even better

    This book was even better than the first. More magic and more action propelled this book from the start until the dramatic showdown. Another reason I really liked this book is that the romance was written in a mature manner with none of the usual angst that is featured in most romance stories. The relationship was trusting, honest and was totally believable. The only drawback---I REALLY don't like Tara and have a hard time seeing any redeeming qualities in her. Maybe if there is another book she will grow up or be written out completely. I know which one I'm hoping for. I do hope there is another book in this series.

    “Under Witch Aura” is a tremendously exciting story,

    “Under Witch Aura” is a tremendously exciting story, the sequel to “Under Witch Moon.” Even deeper in characterization and intensity of plotting (if that could be possible), “Under Witch Aura,” like its predecessor, kept me riveted. Author Maria E. Schneider packs a lifetime of worthwhile reading into each of these novels, which are definitely multiple rereaders.

    Santa Fe area Hispanic witch Adriel is at an apparent standstill in her blooming relationship with White Feather; an inexplicable frost has, not withered the bloom, but put it on standstill. She discovers her own troubles only commencing when a nocturnal visit to her home of the ghost of a reclusive hermit witch sets terrifying events in motion. Meanwhile, warlock White Feather is sticking to home because something magically ugly has attached itself to him, and he is trying to track it while simultaneiously keeping it apart from his young sister and from Adriel.

    You don’t have to love magic to love this series; but if you love magic, these are don’t miss novels. Romance, unfolding characterization, continuing characters who actually mature and evolve (or devolve, in the cases of the villains), plotting that will make your hair curl, and much much more make these books winners for sure.

    A Magically Entertaining Read

    I must say from the top, that Under Witch Aura has become one of my favorite reads of 2011. This book has it all - mystery, suspense, steamy romance, humor, great characters. Other reviewers here have already given accurate synopses of the story, so just let me add my accolades to Maria Schneider's writing style and ability to weave a plot rich with magical elements while keeping the pace tight. I was never bored and found myself scraping minutes together in my day to get back to this book. I truly hope she writes another in this series soon! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
