Soul of the Desert
Maria Schneider
4.9 Stars (10 Reviews)
Genre: United States | Family Life

Soul of the Desert was shortlisted in the CWA’s Dagger Debut competition in 2003. It’s the story of an adopted child on the run from the mob.

In 1976, the best a black kid in Harlem can hope for is to work for the mob or pick up extra bucks as an informer. Rand’s choices are a quick bullet or a long, tortured punishment with death hanging off the end. The only oblivion is the drugs; Rand can either sell them, take them or both. It may be too late for Rand, but that won’t stop him from trying to save his baby brother, Bo. So when strangers appear on the streets of Harlem, Rand hatches a crazy plan to use them to save Bo from a similar fate. Rand must send Bo to a place that is so desolate and removed from Harlem that no one will dare follow him.

Once there, all Bo has to do is find a way to stay alive.

Under Witch Moon (Moon Shadow Series)
Maria E. Schneider
4.4 Stars (34 Reviews)
Genre: Horror | Mystery, Thriller & Suspense | Romance | Fantasy

Adriel should have known that with a werewolf, it never stopped with just one body. She would have gone to the police after witnessing Dolores’ death, but she wasn’t certain the killer she saw was responsible for the other murders. Besides, the police didn’t believe in werewolves, and they weren’t going to believe she was a witch either so what could she tell them?

She kept her eyes and ears open while she tried to help her latest client escape the clutches of a voodoo witch, but things went from bad to worse when more bodies turned up. She was greatly relieved when she met White Feather, an undercover cop. Unfortunately, he wasn’t convinced she was innocent of all wrong-doing.

It was going to take every spell she knew and a few she hadn’t tried to solve the murders and stay alive.
