Pocket Full of Tinder by Jill Archer
It’s all been building to this, from the series spotlight to the reviews of the prequels to the cover reveal, until finally we’ve reached it, a review of newest book in the Noon Onyx series, Pocket Full of Tinder!
I received an ARC of this book book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.
Publisher’s Description: Noon Onyx is back! In this long-awaited fourth installment, Jill Archer returns readers to the dangerous world of Halja, where demons, angels, and humans coexist in an uneasy state of détente.
Maegester-in-Training Noon Onyx feels like she’s done it all – mastered fiery magic, become an adept fighter, learned the law, killed countless demons, and survived having her heart broken by both love and an arrow, but now she’ll face her greatest challenge yet…
Far to the north lies an outpost famous for its unrest – Rockthorn Gorge. The town’s patron has specifically requested Noon’s help. Her assignment? Help the neophyte demon lord build his fiefdom and keep what’s his. The problem? Lord Aristos – Noon’s new employer – is her erstwhile lover, Ari Carmine, the aforementioned heartbreaker. And the number one thing he wants is her.
When Rockthorn Gorge’s viaduct is destroyed by Displodo, an enigmatic bomber, killing a dozen settlers and wounding scores more, Noon sets off early to aid in the search and rescue. Ari is listed among the missing and the suspects are legion. But Noon’s search is just the beginning. Her journey forces Noon to confront not only those she loves, but also enemies hell-bent on destroying them.
Possible spoilers beyond this point.
Luna Lovebooks says…
Likes: Once again we have a beautiful cover. I was so happy to see that there is very little repeat information in this installment. The characters still continue to grow, especially Noon who still has so much to learn about herself. This book is heartbreaking—you will have to read it to find out why—but it is also uplifting.
Dislikes: There wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about the fourth installment of the Noon Onyx series. The deaths were devastating for both Noon and this reader! However, many of the issues I had with the previous novels have been fixed. I’m also not sure how I feel about the ending. It leaves room for another installment in the series, but it could also be a wonderful wrap up as well.
Overall I think this is the best Noon novel yet and give it 5 drakons!
