Review: Dark Light of Day by Jill Archer

Dark Light of Day
Author: Jill Archer
Release Date: September 25, 2012
Publisher: Ace
Noon Onyx Book #1
ISBN: 0425257150

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Review Copy Source: Publisher/Bewitching Book Tours

Armageddon is over. The demons won. And yet somehow…the world has continued. Survivors worship patron demons under a draconian system of tributes and rules. These laws keep the demons from warring among themselves, and the world from slipping back into chaos.

Noon Onyx grew up on the banks of the river Lethe, the daughter of a prominent politician, and a descendant of Lucifer’s warlords. Noon has a secret: She was born with waning magic, the dark, destructive, fiery power that is used to control demons and maintain the delicate peace among them. But a woman with waning magic is unheard of, and some would consider her an abomination.

Noon is summoned to attend St. Lucifer’s, a school of demon law. She must decide whether to declare her powers there…or to attempt to continue hiding them, knowing the price for doing so may be death. And once she meets the forbiddingly powerful Ari Carmine—who suspects Noon is harboring magic as deadly as his own—Noon realizes there may be more at stake than just her life.

Noon is considered an abomination. She was born with Waning magic which is extremely odd for a girl to possess. She has gone her whole life hiding her magic and wishing for the Waxing magic her twin Night was born with. Unfortunately it is time for her to declare her magic to the demons or she faces death. 

To be 100% honest I started off being a bit bored with the first part of the book and some spots were a bit too slow for my liking. I didn't really get Noon or connect with her until we were a few chapters into the book. Ari was dark and mysterious and you could see the connection between the two from the moment they laid eyes on each other. I really enjoyed Ari's family, Noon's father is still a bit of a mystery to me and Peter threw me through a loop and I'm dying to know what happens next between with him, Ari and Noon if anything. The demons are interesting. Everyone has to deal with them one way or another and I enjoyed Archers explanations and insight into their world.

DARK LIGHT OF DAY was the first book in the series and it did a really good job with introducing you to the characters involved and helping you learn the world in which they live in. The characters were well written and the world was well built. There is a bit of action thrown in and danger throughout. There is still plenty I want to know about the characters and the world so I will look forward to grabbing a copy of book 2 when it is released in May 2013. 

I gave it 3.5/5 stars

Cover Reveal: Blood and Mistletoe by E.J. Stevens

Blood and Mistletoe
(Ivy Granger #1.5)
November 20, 2012

Holidays are worse than a full moon for making people crazy. In Harborsmouth, where many of the residents are undead vampires or monstrous fae, the combination may prove deadly.

Ivy Granger, psychic private investigator, returns to the streets of Harborsmouth in this addition to the bestselling urban fantasy series.

Holidays are Hell, a point driven home when a certain demon attorney returns with information regarding a series of bloody murders. Six Harborsmouth residents have been killed and every victim has one thing in common--they are fae. Whoever is killing faeries must be stopped, but they only leave one clue behind--a piece of mistletoe floating in a pool of the victim's blood.

The holidays just got interesting. Too bad this case may drive Ivy mad before the New Year. Heck, she'll be lucky to survive Christmas.

Blood and Mistletoe is an Ivy Granger series novella.
