"Witch’s Aura" has romance. It has magic. And it has suspense. That’s a pretty potent combination and it works. The book is gripping. It’s been a long time since I was a teenager, and a long time (though shorter) since I have read a book for teenagers. I had forgotten the intensity that is the teenage years – how every little commonplace thing is vibrant and vital. Devon Volkel has captured this with uncanny accuracy, and she manages to communicate it really well. I know Devon Volkel is an adult ...more

A Witch's Aura by Devon Volkel is a 2013 Penrose publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Shayde has just turned sweet sixteen. She gets a new car for her birthday from her parents and another surprise from them as well. She receives an interesting history lesson, a magical ring and sort of like a fairy godmother called Aura.

Shayde has also met a great guy named Kruise. Sparks fly between them right from the start and it doesn't take long

A Witch's Aura presents us with a new take on the history of witches that for me was really fascinating. The story begins with Shayde on the night before her sixteenth birthday. She is a lovely young woman inside and out and rather innocent having always been protected by her older brother who was killed by a drunk driver early in the year and had always been her best friend. She is does not feel like celebrating as she reflects on her loss. I found myself really liking her character she was a t ...more

If you love fantasy, young adults novels, and romance then this book is for you! "A Witch's Aura" is Devon Volkel's first book in what is set to become a very promising new series. The first book introduces our two main characters Shayde Gamic and Kruise Wright, two teens who meet each other and fall in love at the same time as Shayde is finding out an ancient family secret that she comes from a long-line of powerful witches. As the relationship develops so do complications with her new found po ...more

After taking a literature course focused on gender studies at Illinois State University, I've been able to analyze novels such as "A Witch's Aura" in a much deeper fashion. Shayde is going through what every soon-to-be 16 year old girl goes through - boys, friends, drama, celebration, etc. However, there's one huge difference. Shayde comes from a long line of witches. Kruise is the guy of Shayde's dreams, but neither could find the courage to initiate the first contact until one fateful day at a ...more

Shelves: fantasy
I stumbled across this book through a friend's recommendation and found it to be a very pleasant read. The characters are fun and easy to relate to and they do make up for the rather slow pace and build up at the start of the book.

It's a great magical coming of age story with an interesting take on the Witchcraft genre. The series has great potential and I hope that Devon will focus more on the magic and a little less on the romance in future books.

Definitely worth adding to your reading list.

Got email from Penrose Publisher, asking to read and reviewing this debut author, well I quite like it, if only the story more develop into 'real-fantasy' not another fantasy-romance, or I might say more like romance-fantasy.
One thing I really like is the historical part, too bad it just a glimpse rather a full-interesting story-line.
