by Felicia Tatum
Kindle Edition, 211 pages
Published November 29th 2012

How do you live with the gut clenching truth that the one you love will die if you meet them? Twenty year old sorcerer Scott Tabors is learning how. After seeing seventeen year old Olivia Whitehead outside of a coffee shop, his heart will never be the same. He longs for her, he wants her, and he knows she will be his. They are heart mates. …but due to a curse on his family, he can’t meet her. Not yet. So for now, he visits her in her dreams. Her dreams where he can tell her everything but his name.

Olivia Whitehead is a typical junior in high school. She and her best friend are having the time of their lives, but she can’t help but notice the changes happening to her. Especially the changes in her heart after she begins dreaming about a mysterious dark haired young man. But what will happen when the school heartthrob decides he wants Olivia? Will she realize the dream man is real or will she move on?

I learned about this book from twitter via @lyndajdickson’s. Then I went to her blog and read her wonderful review of Felicia Tatum’s dream-inspired fantasy novel, The White Aura. I got curious so I bought the book on amazon. Thank you Miss Lynda Dickson!

Olivia is not your typical teen who grows up with doting parents. In fact, they are  distant from her. But at least she’s got Juniper, her BFF and the man of her dreams, literally. In her dreams, she has been seeing a sexy gorgeous man, who always showers her with kisses and caress. Little did she know that Scott aka Mr. Sexy is so real, is just a few miles away from her and was in fact, a sorcerer.

But the so-called Mr. Sexy can’t simply approach her. Because of an ancient course that prevents them from being together, Scott is unable to personally introduce himself as her heart-mate, until she reaches her rightful age. At first, he’s content in seeing Olivia in dreamland, but when a new guy was demanding for Livvie’s attention, Scott employs his sister’s help to know more about his competition.

Aiden Cavalier, the teenage playboy who suddenly showed interest in Olivia,  has a hidden agenda. In ancient times, he was known as Crimson Calamitous, and he intends to get Olivia, by hook or by crook. Soon, the war between sorcerers was ignited and our lady in distress suddenly has white aura surrounding her. To top it off, Olivia seems to have the power of seeing one’s death with just a simple touch.

Mystery certainly surrounds the life and dreams of our two main characters, Scott and Olivia. I loved how they alternately told their story in the book. Sorcery is not a new topic to me in the books that I’ve read, but in The White Aura, it was somewhat lacking. I was waiting for spells or incantations to be uttered by any of the Tabors family, but I wasn’t able to find it. However, I liked the story a lot so I told myself: “to hell with the spells! Scott and Livvie is what matters the most!”

The fact that I was able to read the book in 2 days mean a major thing to me. With my busy schedule at home and now with my kids’ school, I usually finish a book in 3-5 days, max. But with Felicia  Tatum’s light and breezy storytelling gift, I finished the book at a shorter time. I liked how she kept the other characters still shrouded with mystery,(what’s up with Sebastian? he seems like the evil twin.. and what’s the real deal with Livvie’s parents? what awaits Juniper’s newly changed future?) and so on..

The story of Scott & Olivia was unique. I loved how the author played with their personalities and thoughts while both are on dreamland. And I love how she left me reeling and asking for more. The ending was a definite cliffhanger, one that would totally make the reader buy the next installment. And I will not e an exception. I would definitely read the next book, so I can find out more about the Red Calamari..i mean, crimson calamitous!
