Pocket Full of Tinder

A Noon Onyx Novel, #4

I have reviewed the first three books in the Noon Onyx series and have enjoyed everyone. “Pocket Full of Tinder” does not disappoint. It has all that I have come to expect from Ms. Archer. Get ready for some action, character building, friends (what’s a good story without the side characters), demons, couples and an arc that will leave you saying NO, NO, NO, I need to read the next book know!!!

This is the fourth book and I had to go back and re-read books 1-3 before reading “Pocket Full of Tinder”. I am glad I did so because I could really appreciate the quality of the story telling. Which in my opinion, just got better. The character development, action, romance, great fighting scenes, demons, story build-up, and just her writing style was kicked up a notch.

Noon, what can I say, is such a strong female character and is one of my favorites of all time. Yes, there is a plot twist that I did not see coming. And yes, all of you Noon Onyx fans will not like it… but trust the author, she has done a fantastic job of creating a world that reaches out and sucks you in and gets you invested in these characters lives. I did not like the twist at first as I am sure others will not either. But trust Ms. Archer for she sees into what the story will be and the journey that Noon will make. We readers are along for the ride.

I really enjoyed this book and I recommend that you read the whole series and not try any of them as a standalones. It is best to read them in order for the whole complete story. If you have not read any of the Noon Onyx novels, please do so now. You will not regret getting started on this series. If you have, then “Pocket Full of Tinder” will be a good surprise.

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 heart breaker. 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.
