Under Witch Moon by Maria E. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A totally captivating, non-stop adventure into a new perspective on contemporary society, in which witches, vampires, and shifters live right along with “normals,” even though in many cases normals choose to figuratively close their minds and remain in denial, “Under Witch’s Moon” had me speedily turning pages and not realizing the passage of time. A lovely escalating buildup of tension keeps the reader on the edge, constantly hovering between “Oh no!” and “All right!” as our heroine battles evil (yes, literally) while simultaneously striving to maintain balance in her own chosen life, as a scientifically-based witch who avoids black magic at all costs.
Not all witches are that morally upright, though, and Adriel finds herself drawn into a web cast by one who scares even vampires. Budding romance, magical surprises everywhere she turns, friendships, sibling rivalry, and much much more make this intriguing tale of a Santa Fe not so far removed from our consensus reality endearing and a re-read.
