White Heart of Justice by Jill Archer

You may have noticed that we’ve been creeping up on a new release by Jill Archer, book four in the Noon Onyx series. We’re getting closer, but for today, check out Luna’s review of book three, White Heart of Justice.

I received an ARC of this book book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

Publisher’s Description: Since Lucifer claimed victory at Armageddon, demons, angels, and humans have coexisted in uneasy harmony. Those with waning magic are trained to maintain peace and order. But hostilities are never far from erupting…

After years of denying her abilities, Noon Onyx, the first woman in history to wield waning magic, has embraced her power. She’s won the right to compete in the prestigious Laurel Crown Race—an event that will not only earn her the respect of her peers but also, if she wins, the right to control her future.

However, Noon’s task is nearly impossible: retrieve the White Heart of Justice, a mythical sword that disappeared hundreds of years ago. The sword is rumored to be hidden in a dangerous region of Halja that she is unlikely to return from. But Noon’s life isn’t the only thing hanging in the balance. The sword holds an awesome power that, in the wrong hands, could reboot the apocalypse—and Noon is the only one who can prevent Armageddon from starting again…

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

Likes: I like that the information dump that can be found in the first two novels is absent for this novel. Readers can focus more on the current story and action. I love that Noon is now comfortable in her own skin. In the first two novels, we were introduced to Host magic and Angel magic. This novel presents a new kind of magic – perennial. I can’t wait to see how all three play into the next installment. There are quite a few surprises that I didn’t see coming.

Dislikes: I am heartbroken! As much as I liked Ari, I liked Rafe that much more! Noon and Rafe just seemed to belong together and those swoon worthy feels were dashed! My only other complaint is that the first section of the book talks about how difficult Tartarus will be, but compared to the first half of the book, the time in Tartarus is quite short and I didn’t get the sense of danger that was claimed in the first section.

badge4v4Despite the first two book having a lot of repeated information and a lot of information given all at once, I fell in love with the overall story and the characters. This book doesn’t disappoint in improving upon the flaws of the previous books and making readers want to continue the story. I give this book 4 stars.

Our reviews in this series…

Recommendations…

Take a look at the Raine Benares series by Lisa Shearin, the Marla Mason series by T.A. Pratt, or the Promethean Age series by Elizabeth Bear.

    White Heart of Justice was a lot of fun. I reviewed Pocket Full of Tinder recently and I think you will really like it.
