    4.5/5 Stars (rounded to 4)This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction AddictionPocket Full of Tinder is, without a doubt, my favorite book in this series so far. Maybe because I’m a sucker for Ari and this book has a LOT of interaction between Onyx and my favorite demon with a heart of gold. Or maybe I just appreciated Onyx’s struggle to prove herself in this new, uncharted territory. Or maybe the two-year gap between books actually gave Archer some breathing room so she could produce a super high-quality, engaging story. Whatever the reason, I found myself incredibly invested in this installment the whole way through (whereas the other books tended to start out a little slower for me and then I warmed up to them).What Fed My Addiction:That cover. Okay, I know this shouldn’t really matter, but just take a look at the new cover style! I’m loving it!!Ari and Onyx. As is typical in this type of fantasy (it reads a bit like urban fantasy) the romance is a bit on and off over a span of several books. In this installment, I got plenty of my favorite couple (and pretty much none of my non-favorite couple)—which isn’t to say that the course of love ran completely smoothly. In fact, there was plenty of turmoil for these two. But that just made the relationship all that much more interesting! And where it all ended up … well, of course I can’t say, but … gosh, I don’t even know how to give my reaction without spoiling things, so just read it!Steady pacing. Like I said in my intro, this book moved at a steady clip and kept me engaged the entire way through. By the end of the book, I was furiously flipping the pages, needing to know what would happen next!Demons! Since Onyx was actually working with the demons in this book, we got to see a lot more of them. Onyx has to prove herself to the group at Rockthorn Gorge, and the stakes feel incredibly high because she’s never quite sure who might be plotting against her (and Ari—and the bridge project in general). Normally, battle scenes and such aren’t my favorite parts of fantasy and urban fantasy novels, but in this case the “practice” matches between Onyx and the demons kept me guessing enough that I never lost interest. It was fun to see what new trick the demons would come up with and to guess at whether or not Onyx would come out on top.Game-changing developments. A thing happened in this book that made me crazy and I simply refuse to believe it’s real. Refuse. It’s all going to go away. Probably. In the next book. Or the one after. Darn you, Jill Archer!!What Left Me Hungry for More:Reactions. Onyx’s reaction when the thing happened frustrated me. I kind of wanted to scream at her to use her head. But it wasn’t her head that was in charge at that moment, so … Then I felt like the repercussions of her reaction were strangely short-lived, and that had me scratching my head a little. Still, these were minor issues in an overall fantastic story!I loved this book, and now I’m incredibly eager to read the next installment! I give this one 4.5/5 stars!***Disclosure: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was given and all opinions are my own.***

    SPOILERS I'm still a fan of this series because I find it unique - I've never read another series quite like it in the sense that the main character is essentially kind of a litigator/prosecutor/executioner/judge (depending on the situation) for demons and much of the content actually revolves around real law school training. I have really liked Noon, the heroine, thus far. In fact, I liked most all of the characters and their interactions with each other. I never really felt like the villains got too "villainey" or the heroes too one-dimensional. So yeah, I was pleased as punch when this one came out after such a long period of time had passed since book three. (view spoiler)[ However, 75% in or so and something major happens. One of my favorite characters dies. Oh how I hate it when one of the favorites gets killed off. So much so, in fact, that I really couldn't believe it was actually true. And it might have broken my heart except for the fact that it was written really strangely. I found it so lacking in human emotion that I had trouble believing what I was reading. I felt no authentic grief from anyone except for his family (and that was very brief) and one very short crying jag by the Noon. I kept expecting him to pop up again, maybe having shifted into an alternate reality or something. Yet, it never happened. So now I have to decide whether to continue with the series or not. Because he was a large part of what made it interesting. Not sure that Noon can carry it on her own. And I certainly did not feel anything true in her grief. She went and did something pretty major in order to prevent herself from feeling the grief and as far as she knew it was a permanent thing. I kind of got annoyed with that. It was understandable to a certain extent but she didn't waste any time with it. I had trouble believing that she wouldn't have gotten caught up in that grief and held onto it, because that's all she had left of the one she lost. At that point for me, everything got kind of weird and very flat. I was still trying to figure out if I believed that he was really gone - based on the reactions of all the other characters. And since when did his father and brother not approve of her? I just re-read the entire series in anticipation of this installment and I did not get that feeling at all. Anyway, let's just say the author has something else up her sleeve and he's not truly gone after all - in this case I'm annoyed because it was a dirty trick and a waste of the last 25% of the book. Now let's say he is truly gone, which really does seem to be the case here (ahh but one never knows) - then in that case I'm annoyed because of the pathetic and completely lacking in impact send-off that he received especially as he was important to the series as a whole.(hide spoiler)]There are other minor annoyances that weren't really that big of a deal to me but changed somewhat after the tragedy. I was annoyed that the Angel who created Noon's wardrobe knew so much of everything else but couldn't prevent it from happening. I was annoyed that another character, who had some type of "sight" could not have prevented it from happening. I was annoyed at the hypocrisy within the St. Luck's staff regarding Noon's behavior and the outcome of her residency at Rockthorn Gorge. Suddenly they are bringing up the fact that during her "quest" last semester she had killed a fellow student, yet it seems that random students were killed during the sparring matches which were part of the elimination process for the quest's participants and at that time no one batted an eye. I was annoyed at what her punishment is going to be, because it seems like the whole Rockthorn Gorge dam project could have been avoided completely if someone had just thought to bring a case against the slum-lord who oversaw the people who needed the electricity it would provide. My final thoughts are this: I will likely read the next installement. I am curious to see how Noon handles herself living in the slums and what types of ideas she has for improving the living conditions there. As to the tragedy: permanent or not, magical character return or not, I thought that whole section was written poorly and without emotion.

    I desperately wanted this series to continue. At the end of White Heart of Justice, I felt a little bereft that the lives of these characters would stop there. Alas, the Gods of Fantasy must have heard my plea. Noon is back, and she's as amazing as ever.Brilliantly narrated, this book is a magnificent fantasy novel because it has stamina in its pace, it's witty, it's romantic, and it's stimulating for the mind and conscience as well as the heart.I can't help but love so many things about it. The complex hierarchy of legal authorities and demon patrons, the apocalyptic historical background of the world-building, the latinized names of places, and people, the fiery magic, the clever use of humour, the mysterious and deadly plot, and the beautiful intricacy of the forbidden romance between Noon and the multi-faceted Ari.One thing that is so great about Noon is that she is powerful, strong and intelligent, but she always sweats for her victories, and she suffers and evolves through each of them. This time, she's been posted to a remote area where she must conduct an investigation over the destruction of a controversial dam and find the culprit.I just dived head first into this exciting mix of magic melees, cunning demons, angelic lore, quirky characters, exhilarating fights and rich legends.I fell in love again with Noon and her impossible mission to battle deadly enemies lurking behind insidious plans and the price she always has to pay to stay true to who she is against law, magic and sacrifice.Then, after the most perfectly passionate reunion which I was so hoping for, the author decided to destroy me without remorse. From a creative point of view, that terrible and mind-blowing plot twist is the source of an immensely imaginative and gripping sequence of events, laden with action and magic and which leads to a resolution of this fourth book that once again is fitting and opens up more exhilarating venues for a fifth book.Yet...It's gutted me open like an innocent puppy and now for the first time in my life I kind of hate the mind behind the book. Sorry. I could never accept that this kind of thing happens to a character. After supporting the series from the start and praying for its continuation, I feel betrayed. I'm a reader, after all. I love characters as if they were real. And now I'm in mourning. My sorrow literally rained on my kindle. I can't understand why this would be done to us, Noon and readers alike. I'm deeply disappointed.

But for 22 year old Nouiomo Onyx (aka Noon) a reversal of fortunes has occurred at her birth-she was imbued with the dark waning magic (once only accorded to men) and her twin Nocturo (Nightshade) was the waxing magic (once only accorded to women). Women are the creators not the destroyers. Noon’s ability to wield waning magic will become both a curse and a blessing- in more ways than one.Told from first person point of view (Noon Onyx) POCKET FULL OF TINDER is the continuing story of Maegester-in-Training Noon Onyx, as she struggles with who she is and what she has become. At the end of book three-White Heart of Justice-Noon walked away from the only man she has ever loved after a perceived betrayal and lie of omission forced our heroine to choose between love and a happily ever after, and living a life she knows as a lie. POCKET FULL OF TINDER is witness to Noon’s latest assignment that will bring our heroine face to face with her new employer at Rockthorn Gorge-Lord Aristos aka Ari Carmine aka the man that she loves. What ensues is the rebuilding romance between Noon and Ari, and the search for the person(s) responsible for the continued attacks against, and the destruction of a dam project near Rockthorn Gorge.POCKET FULL OF TINDER is a heartbreaking story line; a revealing look at two people whose hearts were shattered by betrayal; whose lives will be destroyed by power and greed; whose happily ever after is never meant to be. We get up close and personal with the hierarchy of demonkind, angels, and the political elite in a post-apocalyptic world governed by magic and power. The premise is complex and original; the characters are passionate, magical and unique; the romance is emotional and intense. Jill Archer NOON ONYX is an amazing, imaginative and fantastic series with flawless text, and a breathtaking premise.Copy supplied for review by Netgalleywww.thereadingcafe.com

    I have been waiting for ages to read this new installment of the Noon Onxy series and this book didn't disappoint. In this new adventure Noon, a Maegester-in-Training, is given the assignment of traveling to a remote outpost to help the New Demon patron of Rockthorn Gorge (Aristos-- Noon's former flame) build up his domain and protect the citizens from the zealous bomber Displodo who continuous actions threatens the construction of a new dam.   Noon and compatriots (both new and old) must solve the mystery and figure out who Displodo is and stop them before they strike again. Noon must also finally confront Ari with how they left things in White Heart of Justice. This volume will push Noon to greater highs as she faces new challenges  that will push her to the brink. This volume is definitely an emotional roller coaster that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Wonderful read.I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review

    I very much enjoyed the first three books in the Noon Onyx series and have been looking forward to this new story for a while. I was definitely not disappointed, since this was another story that has it all, plenty of action, personal challenges, and working through relationships - both lovers and friends. Noon is on a new assignment, this time in the northern outpost of Rockthorn Gorge, where an insidious bomber is trying to stop the building of a dam, and every time he blows up the construction site, people are killed and the project is set back that much more. The new patron has requested Noon’s help, and it’s non other than Ari Carmine, the man Noon broke up with after learning he was a demon, whose form is a large drakon. There were a lot of challenges for Noon, including facing her feelings about Ari, proving herself and her fighting skills to the demons in his employ, searching for the bomber, and avoiding the machinations of Ari’s ex-lover. This story brought out a lot of emotions, with highs and lows for some favorite characters, and though I might have liked to see a different ending, I respect the author’s choices even though it wasn’t where I thought the story was going to go. I would definitely like to see more of Noon’s adventures, she’s a wonderfully strong female character, and I hope there are more stories to come.

    I loved it! It had so much I was expecting ((view spoiler)[the return of Ari!! (hide spoiler)]) and so much I didn't but loved anyway. My favourite thing about this series is how seriously it treats the heroine's journey and development, whilst balancing deep emotions of love, grief and anxiety. Hope to see more from this series, or the author generally.

    I don't like what happened. It made me damn angry at the author. But it was generally well-written and I don't think I can claim low-rating vengeance for the authorial path veering off into a direction I did not want it to go. So here are you're goddamned four stars, motherfucker.

    This is a Novella of the Noon Onyx series. If you haven't read the previous installments of this series I urge you to read them, you won't be disappointed.I love Jill's take on the paranormal world. I love the imagery her description is stunning and her characters are phenomenal.There are so many elements in this book that I think just about anyone will find something to love about it. There's friendships, betrayals, some great action, redemption, love......The previous installments where very good but this was so much better than the firsts! More action, better character development and a extraordinary plot.

    Please check out http://qwillery.blogspot.com/2016/12/... for an opportunity to win a copy of Pocket Full of Tinder!!!Nouiomo Onyx returns in Pocket Full of Tinder. Noon, a Maegester-in-training, has accepted an externship in the remote settlement of Rockthorn Gorge. Her assignment is of critical importance to the Demon Council because of their interest in the hydroelectric dam that is currently under construction. On the surface, the job is exactly what she has been training for, but there are complications. A saboteur known only by the pseudonym Displodo has been using explosives with the goal of permanently halting the dam's construction. Many have died during these attacks, including the town's last patron. Rockthorn Gorge's newly elected patron is Ari Carmine, who is Noon's ex-lover. Noon and Ari have not seen each other since their dramatic split. Noon arrives with her Guardian Angel Fara and her pet hellhound on the heels of a new attack on the dam's viaduct. At the scene, Noon and her team join Rockthorn Gorge's citizens in clearing debris and searching for survivors. As she works, she realizes that Displodo may be one of Ari's advisors, someone with access to insider information . Can Noon expose the saboteur before more people are killed, and ensure the dam's successful completion?There is something for everyone in Pocket Full of Tinder: magical skirmishes, romance, espionage, betrayal, death, and redemption. I really enjoy this series. Noon, her companions, and her foes are well-written and have complex motivations that serve to catapult the story in surprising directions. Although the story starts slow, it's action-packed once it gets rolling. Jill Archer's world building skill is incredible. Halja can be a perilous place, where humans like Noon, whose bloodlines are mixed with demon blood, use their magical skill to enforce the strict laws of the land to maintain peace. Archer deftly utilizes Latin to provide an authentic feel to Halja's mythos. Rockthorn Gorge in particular is a harrowing locale. Situated in a rugged, northern outpost, Noon must gain access by funicular and then descend a steep ravine, foreshadowing the hazards ahead. Noon Onyx is a great heroine. Due to her unique position of being the sole human female who possesses waning magic, she is always being tested. In Pocket Full of Tinder she faces her greatest test to date. Pummeled on all sides by demons who want to measure her skills and enemies who want to destroy what she has pledged to defend, Noon must be on top of her game. It doesn't help that she has mixed feelings for her ex-lover and boss, who is determined to win her back. Although powerful and extremely badass, Noon's decisions are tempered by an admirable degree of love and compassion. I appreciate that she has a great sense of humor, is fiercely loyal to her friends and that she has one heck of a stylist.Archer has taken the series to new heights. Pocket Full of Tinder is an emotional roller coaster for both Noon and the reader. Filled with scares and delights, Noon's story continues to deliver satisfaction and unexpected plot twists. Pocket Full of Tinder can be read as a standalone, but I would suggest reading the entire series; it's time well spent. I am a big fan of this series and hope to read about Noon's life and adventures for years to come.

    I really did want to like this. The world-setting has potential, and I really do like the idea of a world ruled by demons and in coordination with demon-descended humans (let's call them the Dark) as well as clerical/faith magic-workers previously allied with the Light. Two millennia after 'God' lost the war for mankind and the Earth, we are in a changed and dangerous land where for the most part humans are not at the top of the food chain. There are things that eat them to keep them humble and worshipful. At least that's how I look at it.I now completely dislike this 'heroine' -- who is a whiny incompetent. I really wish that she (view spoiler)[had died off in this book (hide spoiler)], and that we might then continue with a more interesting character, and hopefully more detailed and coherent world-building.Re world-building: Let's dissect some of the most obvious holes in the mythology of this post-Apocalypse Earth ruled by demon-kind. So demons rule and have the right to execute any 'Maegester' who is incompetent. Humans routinely worship demons. In fact, humans lacking magic must worship demons for basic protection against this horrific and dangerous demon-Earth. Yet, 'Noon' recoils from her revealed demon lover (for 2 books no less) because he is a...DEMON. Really. He's honorable, courageous, handsome, loving and committed to this human, Noon. He was born a demon from a human mother, and ultimately raised by humans as a magical human. The author is not that clear about the 'conception' process between a demon and a human; it seems as though he may be half-human and half-demon, as in, does the mother contribute an egg, or is it an entirely magical process? Was there even a demon involved in his conception at all, or did Lucifer just place him in a woman's womb...some readers might like to know. This might have been an interesting plot line to develop. Noon, on the other hand, has a 'demon-mark', which is a sign that she, like all other magic-bearing humans has at least one demon ancestor, yet she feels entitled to reject someone more recently descended from the demon-human admixture. Which if that is true must mean that at least one of HER ancestors was a drakon (else how else was that ancestor conceived, since demons do not conceive -- life is a gift from Lucifer).I won't give you any spoilers...! But...the way that this book progresses just leaves me confounded. Am I supposed to sympathize with an idiot hypocrite who is both whiny and obtuse and self-sabotages at every turn of the page? Uh, No. I actually skipped the preceding book as I was already afraid that it would be 300+ pages more of whining, 'barely escaping with her life,' and wavering when making life or death decisions (in situations where there is no time to waver) for Noon.Overall, I rate this at two stars for a shallow plot-line, simple characterization, repeating episodes very similar to those in prior books (different situations, but the same dynamics), and the absolutely stupid exposition of this world's mythology and landscape.

    I picked this series up on a whim and now the Author has a fan for life. It may seem like a romance book at first but it's more like a self discovery adventure in an amazingly creative setting. The characters and world are intriguing and very well done.Noon is very well written and executed. She can be clumsy and makes a ton of mistakes, yet she is still definitely powerful and capable. Both sides of her are brought out, making her relatable and endearing. Her journey is one of accepting the way the world is, yet also finding a place in that world that is true to herself. This latest book was a wild, amazing ride. It lifted me up, then it devastated me. I really, really hope that there is more to come from this universe and from this author. I would love to see more of Noon's story (though Night and Raf's would be interesting as well!) I would like to see Noon coping more with the outcome of what's happened, as well as how she handles her next year's assignment. The combination of the two sounds like a tempestuous mix that would be enjoyable and make this journey even more unforgettable.If you have a few dollars and need some entertainment, this is definitely a safe bet. Even if you find it's not your cup of tea, the lore and world building itself is worth a read. Of all the random books a the book store to chose, I'm very happy I grabbed this one.

    I was happy to see this series continued, and I hope it continues from here!I enjoyed this. Noon has to go take up her internship, and she knows Ari is her new patron. Though it's been a while since the last book, it didn't take long to get back into this and remember all the good Noon & Ari times.But a thing happens, and Noon gets a little crazy for a while, and in the end she gets another unusual task as punishment - and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next!

    As if dealing with the repercussions that came with hunting down the White Heart Of Justice wasn’t enough, Noon now has to deal with her tenure as consigliere for the Patron of Rockthorn Gorge. Though she dreads the thought of what she’ll find there, she knows she can’t back down from the request for help that’s been made. Her curiosity about the Gorge’s patron grows by the day, causing her to make careful preparations for the trip at hand. What she’ll find there, no one truly knows. Nevertheless, she’ll make the best of the cards she’s been dealt.A Pocket Full Of Tinder is full of so many wonderful twists and turns that truly leave you guessing. It’s a bittersweet story that shows the many sides of Noon Onyx. We see her pain, her guilt, and the love she bears for the man who stole her heart so long ago. Noon has had to put with so many heartaches and disappointments, yet never once does she let any of it deter her from the tasks she’s been given.Jill has put together another wonderful addition to this series. She’s given us a headstrong heroine who dives head-first into the world around her. Noon is decisive and is often led by her emotions, yet she will never back down from a fight. She will do everything possible to set all wrongs to right, even if it means she’ll die trying.Expanding on the world she’s created for these lovely characters, we get to see more of what makes them tick. We see a world that often crumbles, but picks itself back up again. Granted nothing about the world Noon lives in is perfect. Why should it be? If it were, she wouldn’t be doing her best to prove she’s worthy of herself and the magic that resides inside her.I truly hope she get to see more of Noon and the rest of her friends. This is a series that sinks deep into your heart and makes you want to know more about it. I definitely recommend it for those of you that haven’t had time to dive into it yet.

    I have just completed reading Jill Archer’s fourth book, POCKET FULL OF TINDER. It was all I hoped it would be and more. Noon Onyx, Maegester-in-Training, continues with her goal toward graduation from law school and her procurement of her first job as Maegester of Demon Law. Noon’s magic never ceases to surprise her in ways she never thought possible with creations of magnificent flying drakons and her ability to outwit her most dreaded adversaries. Throughout the book, Archer relates to previous trials and tribulations that Noon had experienced in the three books that preceded POCKET FULL OF TINDER. Reminiscing about Noon’s former experiences brings the reader to a nostalgic recollection of best loved encounters that are so much a part of the confident, strong woman she has become. There are surprises in this book – Oh Boy, what surprises! In the end, the last page leaves the reader desperately wanting to know what happens next. If you have not read the previous books in Archer’s Onyx series (DARK LIGHT OF DAY, FIERY EDGE OF STEEL, and WHITE HEART OF JUSTICE), I highly recommend that you do so and in order of succession. Archer’s ability, by clever description, makes the reader feel as though he or she is right there with the characters and creates a strong yearning to experience them through film.

    I received a free e-copy in exchange for an honest review.Likes: Once again we have a beautiful cover. I was so happy to see that there is very little repeat information in this installment. The characters still continue to grow, especially Noon who still has so much to learn about herself. This book is heartbreaking—you will have to read it to find out why—but it is also uplifting.Dislikes: There wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about the fourth installment of the Noon Onyx series. The deaths were devastating for both Noon and this reader! However, many of the issues I had with the previous novels have been fixed. I’m also not sure how I feel about the ending. It leaves room for another installment in the series, but it could also be a wonderful wrap up as well.Overall I think this is the best Noon novel yet and give it 5 drakons!

    Initial Thoughts: I have waited with baited breath for this novel. I've been dying to know what happens next for Noon, with Ari, with all the characters including Nightshade, Noon's twin brother. This novel was a slow burn to that final defining moment (which I would LOVE to talk about but I don't want to spoil anyone) and then it takes a huge left turn. It was almost as if we were given the first part of the next novel. Though it was odd, there is still a huge cliffhanger ending. I eagerly anticipate the next novel and hope to see it soon.Please click on the link to the full review by myself and my review partner, Gikany, at That's What I'm Talking About blog: http://twimom227.com/2016/12/review-p...

    Thanks to an ARC, I was provided the opportunity to review this book. I hope to encourage others so that may witness Noon's story.I have enjoyed following Noon on her adventures of self-acceptance and challenges to obtain confidence. How she has grown has been a great journey and those around her help her along the way, especially, as Ari has put it, she would be the Patron of Reluctance. I am not great at summarizing so I won't attempt to do so, but I will say that all that happens within this stretch of Noon's life-experience will help her with her next assignment. I can only hope there is a following book so that I can see what Noon accomplishes next.

    I love this series; I'm so glad the author decided to continue it by self-publishing. I really hope there are going to many more. Noon is a fantastic heroine- strong but flawed in perfect amounts. No annoyingly sassy sidekicks. Dark without being bleak. I need to go bug the author to see if/when more is coming.

    It feels like I waited forever for a new Noon Onyx book. The wait was worth it!!I received this book as an ARC so I can't disclose any spoilers. I do believe that this is the best book in the series and I'm looking forward to the next one!!

    I am really enjoying reading this series. I received a free copy from NetGalley for an honest review and I am glad I did. Jill Archer is a very good writer, I only wish I had this series in paperback. Really good.
