9780425257166: Fiery Edge of Steel (A Noon Onyx Novel)

Lucifer 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, along with a lack of control and a reluctance to kill, have branded her as an outsider among 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 that 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...

About the Author:

Jill Archer is the author of the Noon Onyx series, genre-bending fantasy novels about a postgrad magic user and her off-campus adventures. The series includes Dark Light of Day, Fiery Edge of Steel, White Heart of Justice, and Pocket Full of Tinder.

Review:

“Archer delves deeper into the enticing and magical world of Dark Light of Day in this original and clever urban fantasy. Noon Onyx, the only female at St. Lucifer’s School of Law to possess waning magic, is still coming to terms with her new role in life. She has a duty to keep demons in line but can’t bring herself to destroy them. As a Maegester-in-Training, she is given her first field assignment and Guardian Angel, both unwelcome surprises. Noon is sent to investigate the mysterious disappearances of several residents of a place called the Shallows, and promptly handle the demon who’s been accused of causing those disappearances. Unfortunately, that demon is a myth—or so Noon thinks. Excitement and action leap from the pages as Archer’s skill with description pulls readers fully into her magical world.” – Publishers Weekly

“The second Noon Onyx story is an astounding adventure tale. Archer’s unique world, where Lucifer’s army triumphed at Armageddon, is filled with adherence to strict laws that keep an uneasy peace between races. This is proving to be a really fresh and fascinating series!” – RT Book Reviews (four stars)
