Blurb:
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?
The book The White Aura is about a girl who has a very sexy man visit her dreams, yet she doesn’t know who he is. She has a great group of friends but her parents are a little distant. There is a guy in school, who happens to be popular, whom begins to pay her more attention than he ever has. She has no idea what she is in for…until it’s too late.
Felicia Tatum was born and raised in Tennessee. She began writing at a young age, and finally pursued her passion this past year. The White Aura is her first published novel. She is the mommy to a daughter and a kitty. She enjoys reading and crafting in her free time.
This book promises a very alluring tale of love between different realms. It delivers. There is nothing more capturing than a tale of two lovers who can’t be together except in their dreams. Who can’t touch, feel, or hear each other in the flesh.
I have to say the only pitfall I found in this book is that Olivia seemed to be all over the place in her thoughts vs. her actions. She is supposed to be falling in love with this mystery man from her dream yet, she is also chasing and getting butterflies over this guy at school. But, then again, she is a 17 year old girl. I guess her thoughts are supposed to be all over the map. But I really want Olivia to be a strong character in this series, but I feel that if the absent-mindedness continues, her place as the main character is going to fall short.
There are many reasons to read this book. The tale is epic. To feel a love so profound over such a long distance is hard to stomach. No wonder poor Scott was going out of his mind! The writing was fantastic. I really liked the two different POV (points of view) story telling between Olivia and Scott. The story itself is wonderful. I have to say that it is hard for me to say that. Many plots are so overdone anymore and it’s hard to get into them, but not this one. What a wonderful idea about sorcerers and witches!
I can say that this is a little different YA category than I am used to. Typically when you think of YA, you think vampires, witches, and the such. But sorcerers? What a treasure trove of ideas and spin-off you have created for yourself Felicia!

This book, even though was free for review, is worth every penny spent. The cover art is phenomenal. The editing is great and the writing even better. This was a very quick read and the cliffhanger has you wanting more. I am so glad there is a second book already out. I don’t know if I could wait to find out what happens.
