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...

Our customer reviews

Noon is finally embracing her powers and won the right to compete in the prestigious race which will gain her the respect of her peers but the right to control her future, but once again Noon is the only one who can prevent Armageddon from starting in this thrilling urban fantasy. This steady to fast paced story takes riders on a thrill ride as Noon embraces her powers just in time to prevent Armageddon. The author describes the story with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and lots of excitement and magic to draw the reader deeper into the story. The strong, compelling characters grab the readerâ??s attention from the very beginning. There is a romantic element to the story of course but it kind of pales in comparison to Noonâ??s task of retrieving the White Heart of Justice which could in the wrong hand reboot the Apocalypse. The magical battles from the prestigious race and the from battling their enemies certainly brings lots of action for the reader to get caught up in and an it was certainly an adventure to keep up with Noon on her task. To be honest, I have not read the first books in the series and I found that I was a little disappointed in the book. Now, this is probably due to the fact that I was having to catch up to whatâ??s going on, but it is also due to the fact that I had a hard time keeping up with the terms and elements because I was unfamiliar with them. To be fair, if I had read the previous books, this would probably not be the case, so while I found the world intriguing and I enjoyed the story, I must recommend that readers read the novels in sequence in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series and characters.show more
