Fiery Edge of Steel

Jill Archer. Ace, $7.99 mass market (336p) ISBN 978-0-425-25716-6
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. Agent: Lois Winston, Ashley Grayson Literary Agency. (June)
