Publisher’s DescriptionLucifer and his army triumphed at Armageddon, leaving humans and demons living in uncertain peace based on sacrifice and strict laws. It is up to those with mixed demon and human blood, the Host, to prevent society from falling into anarchy.

Noon Onyx is the first female Host in memory to wield the destructive waning magic that is used to maintain order among the demons. Her unique abilities, paired with a lack of control and reluctance to kill, have branded her as an outsider from her peers. Only her powerful lover, Ari Carmine, and a roguish and mysterious Angel, Rafe Sinclair, support her unconventional ways.

When Noon is shipped off to a remote outpost to investigate several unusual disappearances, a task which will most likely involve trying and killing the patron demon of that area, it seems Luck is not on her side. But when the outpost settlers claim that an ancient and evil foe has stepped out of legend to commit the crimes, Noon realizes that she could be facing something much worse than she ever imagined…

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Likes: I like that by the end of this installment in the Noon series, Noon is far more comfortable with her powers. I like the fact that she wants to know that a demon is guilty before executing it. She doesn’t want to just take someone’s word for it. I also like that none of the characters in this novel are what they seem to be. The mystery of the Shallows is a great addition to the Noon tale, and I am delighted in the way it was played out.

Dislikes: While there isn’t as much of an information dump, the first part of the book is still pretty slow. There are some parts that I found interesting in the first part – like Noon’s choosing of her Angel partner – but for the most part it doesn’t pick up until the second half.

badge4v4While I will continue reading the series, I hope that the overload of information will improve. For this reason I give Fiery Edge of Steel 4 burn marks.
