More About the Author

I grew up in New Mexico where the desert environment inspired me to embellish the landscape with my imagination. After working in the computer industry for twelve years, I decided technology moved too slowly and again put my imagination to work, creating messes and then inventing characters to handle all the clean up. If only that worked on the dinner dishes!

I currently reside near Austin, Texas with my husband. My partners in crime are Junior the cat and his feral mom, Scamper. The beautiful horses belong to my parents and really, they are hardly spoiled at all!

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.

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!

My husband recently finished this book. When I asked him if he liked it his response was, "I didn't want it to end." So I am giving it 5 stars. For him to say that means a lot. I haven't read it yet but look forward to it.

I just went looking for the 3rd installment in the Moon Shadow series (not yet) and realized I hadn't left a review for this second book in the series. This is my way of encouraging both the author to get another out please and fans of witch stories to give this series a try. I have a lot of UF series I am following but I made a special note to look out for this one because I finally found an adult series about witches. This is not a YA series and it is not PNR standard - sorry but I despise corset rippers even if nowadays they have vamps/shifters instead of pirates.

The Moon Shadow series is a today's world with a hidden culture of paranormal peoples and Adriel is a witch with talents. She is not new to the world, she didn't just suddenly discover her hidden powers and we must suffer the angst of self discovery. She is a smart women who is also a talented witch that uses her magic in practical ways. I really enjoyed the place, the magic usage and the various characters. I found this second book in the series to be even better than the first - although it might be due to stepping deeper into the world and getting to know Adriel better.

I would love to read more about Adriel's life and world and absolutely recommend this series. More please!!

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!!!

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.
