When Adriel, a witch whose magic is grounded in earth power, crosses paths with the ghost of a murdered woman, she turns to the uber-hot warlock, White Feather, to help put the spirit to rest. What she doesn't count on is that White Feather is being haunted by his own peculiar demon.

One of the things I admire about this author is that she writes urban fantasy that is different from the ho-hum world of vamps and weres. To be sure, there is plenty of magic, but the fantasy element is unique from most other stories I've read. Also, this book contains a mix of Native American and Hispanic characters, traditions, and mythology. And the setting - Santa Fe, NM - is wonderfully described (be prepared to crave Mexican food!)

The characters are interesting and unique without being over-the-top crazy. This actually became a problem for me when I wanted to read more about a particular woman in the book (I won't go into detail to avoid spoilers).

"Under Witch Aura" is an eerie mystery with a great deal of suspense and an oh-so-sweet romance.

Overall: 5 stars

Plot/Storyline: 5 stars

Having read Under Witch Moon, the first book in the author's Moon Shadow series, I was looking forward to the second book--Under Witch Aura. Both books could be read as standalones, but reading them in order gave a sense of continuity in the characters' introduction and development.

Under Witch Aura grabbed my attention on the first page, when the ghost of Sarah, a witch who was recently killed in a fire, terrorized Adriel, the earth witch who was introduced in the first book. The incident made no sense to Adriel, since the two witches barely knew each other in life. But Adriel and her warlock friend Jason--who went by the name White Feather--had little time to worry about that, since an even more malevolent force began attacking them with incredibly powerful winds that could destroy any structure and kill any living beings.

Adriel's and White Feather's magic was virtually powerless against the ill winds that threatened them. Ultimately, Adriel was forced to delve deeper into her past and to use ancient magic practices that could easily turn against her and kill her.

The story built up the tension and the suspense as Adriel and White Feather sought to stay alive long enough to solve the mystery of the evil force that was threatening them, and to find a means of defeating it.

The climax was a cataclysmic display of hellfire and damnation, as a small band of witches used all their knowledge and magic in a desperate attempt to send the evil spirits back where they came from.

Note: a key element of the story was an Indian sand painting.

The 2nd book in the Mood Shadow Series didn't disappoint. It is just as good as, if not better, than its predessor. It is filled with action, suspense, mystery, thrills & chills and a touch of romance. Adriel and White Feather are perfect together and I can't wait to see what adventures awaits them as the series continues. However, I must say that I really don't like White Feather's sister.

My only negative comment would be that I don't like the cover. The girl on the cover is too young to be Adriel and she is definitely not how I envision her, but that's just my opinion. What really matters is the content and not the cover. In any event, my recommendation is: Buy it, Read it, Enjoy!

I was entirely captivated by all the characters in the series, especially Granny Ruth. I personally do not care for spiders and used to have severe arachnophobia, but as I have gotten older I am much better. Loved the books!!!

What can I possibly say about this fantastic series?
Lets see, these words come to mind: beautifully written, fun, entertaining, exceptional, creative, original, mysterious, captivating, will suck you in and refuse to let go. Okay, okay, that last one was more than one word but, you get the point.

I adore this series. Maria is so utterly talented. Her writing just flows so nicely and is so descriptive that you feel like you become a part of the story. It makes me long to be in New Mexico and be a part of Adriel's world.

I am so thankful that I was able to read this book. I loved Maria's first book in the series, Under Witch Moon. I fell in love with the characters White Feather, Linx, and Adriel. And was so excited when I learned another book was on the way. I jumped at the chance to read it and be immersed in their world again.

This sequel did not disappoint me at all, in fact, as hard as it was to imagine, this book was even better than the first and that is just something that doesn't always happen with second books in a series.

This book had even more mystery and intrigue and romance (huge YAY on this one!!), even more great characters and adventure. Better bad guys and well, you get the idea.

And did I mention Martin. Oh. My. Gosh. Martin.
I have to say I fell in love with Martin. I couldn't help but laugh out load at the scenes with him in it. He was so disgusting and funny and just loveable in a weird sort of scary uncle kind of way.
Seriously, one of the best secondary characters ever.
I loved snarky sarcastic, chip on her shoulder Tara, crazy loveable and fun Mat, Adriel's sweet loving mom and yes, I even loved (gasp for your benefit Maria) the vampire.
