About the Author

Maria Schneider grew up in New Mexico where the desert environment required that she embellish the landscape with her imagination. After working in the computer industry for twelve years, she decided technology moved too slowly, and again put her imagination to work, creating messes and then inventing characters to handle all the clean up. She currently resides near Austin, Texas. She has published stories in such fine magazines as Darwin's Evolutions, The Town Drunk and Coyote Wild.

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.

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 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.

Under Witch Aura (Moon Shadow Series)Maria Schneider's sequel to Under Witch Moon (Moon Shadow Series)is a worthy successor. All my favorite characters are back, including Adriel, White Feather and Lynx.

This edition features White Feather's amazing abilities, and though I was having trouble dealing with it at first, I finally gave myself a mental head slap, and said 'of course!'. If you read the first book, then you know the ability I'm talking about. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say it's an amazing gift!

Adriel is a very practical witch, and at times I have wished I could conjure up some of her spells and potions.

This time around we get a close look at White Feather's sister, who is a little unfocused to say the least.

There is just a touch (!) of darkness in this book, as there was in Witch Moon. But Maria deals with it very well, and definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Good work, again!
