The White Aura - book 1
If he meets her, she will die. Twenty year old sorcerer and college student Scott Tabors knew he’d found his heart mate the moment he saw seventeen year old Olivia Whitehead outside of a coffee shop. He longs for her, he wants her, and he knows she will be his. But due to a curse on his family, he can’t meet her. Not yet. So for now, he visits her in her dreams, where he can tell her everything but his name. 

Olivia Whitehead and her best friend Juniper are enjoying their junior year and are as close as sisters. But Olivia can’t tell anyone about the strange changes she’s experiencing, beginning with steamy dreams featuring a mysterious dark haired young man. But what will happen when the school heartthrob starts showing interest? Will she wait around for her dream man, or will she move on? 

Then, when Olivia’s life is put in danger by a new threat, Scott must find a way to save her – without condemning her to an early death. 

The Vessel - book 2 
Scott and Olivia survive a nearly deadly school dance, but the aftermath of their meeting has everyone who loves them looking for answers. And when Olivia is thrust into a terrifying situation that pushes her to her limits, she must learn for herself what she is capable of. 

She loves Scott, but her parents have disappeared, her grouchy brother has come back to town, and mysterious men are tailing them both. As mysteries swirl around Olivia’s family, Scott must help her discover more about who she truly is—while he races to find the last living descendant of Devlin Hart, the sorcerer who cursed the Tabors family. 

With all of this, can their new love grow? It is further tested by an unexpected rival with a claim on Olivia’s heart. Scott will have to fight his jealousy to continue to woo the woman he loves. With the stress of searching for so many answers on his shoulders, will Scott be able to keep Olivia’s heart? 

Devlin’s Descendant - book 3 
Searching for the sorcerer whose death will set Olivia free from the curse, Scott learns that finding an answer sometimes only brings more questions. As Scott grapples with his horrifying discovery, Olivia uncovers information that could rip his family apart, and Sadie is holding on to a secret of her own.

In book three of the White Aura series, the group searches for the mysterious Sorcery Council, Olivia’s parents, and Aiden, who might just be recaptured by an agent of the Crimson Calamitous. Plus, Olivia’s 18th birthday is getting closer, but they are no closer to real answers. What will happen when Scott reveals the shocking identity of the descendant?

Unbound Destinies - book 4 
Olivia’s eighteenth birthday is drawing closer, and with it, the curse threatening to take her life.

Olivia is on a mission to save herself and all those she holds dear in this final installment of the White Aura series. When everyone comes unbound, Scott, Olivia, and those they love must work together to save them all from the council.

Can Olivia fulfill the requirements given to her in order to keep her growing powers? Will the curse claim Olivia’s life before they have a chance to destroy those that threaten everything they value? Will Aiden lose his soul to The Crimson Calamitous?

All of these answers are revealed as Olivia questions everything she’s known in the race to defeat two ancient and powerful sorcerers.

Amazing. Phenomenal. Addicting. THE WHITE AURA SERIES by Felicia Tatum is a MUST, especially if you’re a fan of YA Paranormal Romances! With twists and turns that had me guessing what would happen next, these books were true page turners. I was hooked from the very beginning and they held my attention all the way through.

Felicia Tatum developed fantastic characters that were easy to understand and relate to. Her writing style was, to me, impeccable. The main reason I loved it so much was because it allowed me to see everything through the characters’ eyes. Aside from the books having different POVs, the amount of details provided created an über clear picture of the scenes unfolding, and yet, they weren’t wordy, which is something I hate in books. Honestly, this series felt balanced – another huge PLUS! The books had a bit of everything: passion, drama, suspense, and of course, paranormal aspects, without going over-board or over-doing it.

“…the moment I saw Livvie, everything changed.”

Scott’s family had been cursed many, MANY years ago. If they met their heartmate before they (the heartmate) were 17 years and 6 months old, they would die the moment they turned 18. And that’s where the problem started. You see, Scott met Olivia (Livvie) when she was 16-ish, only she didn’t know him. The moment he laid eyes on her, he knew she was his soulmate. He knew she was meant for him. Being a 5th generation sorcerer meant he had a few great powers, thought, one which included dream-walking.  So he began visiting Livvie in her dreams, waiting for the day she could meet him in real life and fall in love with him.

Thinking she was going insane, Livvie didn’t tell anyone, not even her best friend, about Mr. Sexy, the boy she’d been dreaming about for the past year. Now 17 years old, Livvie was experiencing things that were making Scott’s “waiting plan” a whole lot more difficult. She was no longer safe.

Waiting plan ABORTED.

They met.

Before Livvie was 18.

A LOT happened to Scott and Olivia. A LOT. Upon meeting, now it was a battle – in more ways than one – not only against the curse, but other enemies. Like I mentioned before, Felicia Tatum delivered twists, turns, and many surprises which you have to experience for yourself, so I won’t go into any of the details. But know this – the buildup was amazing!  I seriously enjoyed this series from beginning to end and I cannot wait to read Sadie’s book: SCORNFUL SADIE!

FIVE STARS to The White Aura, The Vessel, Devlin’s Descendant, and Unbound Destinies!
