#Review: White Heart Of Justice – Jill Archer
Never once did Noon imagine how much her life would change upon setting foot inside Saint Luck’s Academy so long ago. She’s done her best to abide by the rules, though sometimes doing so is quite trying. A new year has come, and with it, she’s won the right to compete in the prestigious Laurel Crown Race. The task she’s been given seems impossible, yet she refuses to give up without a fight. If she’s to succeed in fulfilling her every goal, she’ll need to do everything possible to find exactly what she’s looking for while doing her best to stay alive.
Another wonderful addition to the Noon Onyx series, White Heart Of Justice picks up where the last book left off. We find Noon in another predicament, this time one that tests her mettle in more ways than one. I truly enjoy this world Jill has created for Noon and the rest of the characters. It’s a world full of magic. A world where nothing is as it seems.
All her life Noon has had to contend with the fact that she’s a waning magic user. For so long, she detested that fact, yearning for the right to be able to have a life to nurture and love. Despite her misgivings, however, she’s accepted who and what she is. Though her life isn’t easy, she’s done her best to prove that she’s worthy of the magic residing inside her.
Throughout the book, Jill shows us that no matter how hard things seem to be for Noon, her resilience pays off. This is a character that will do everything possible to survive and succeed. Yes, she is often full of uncertainties, but she is willing to overcome them by any means necessary. Will she ever get her happily ever after? It’s hard to say, but at least she’s willing to see things through until the very end. Noon’s willingness to try and her determination to find her way throughout the chaos that always surrounds her is what makes her such a headstrong character.
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…
