Among humans who have a drop of demon blood called the Host in them, women are born with waxing magic, which heals and nurturesl; men are born with waning magic, which destroys and sets things on fire. Noon and her twin brother's magic polarities are reversed: Noon was born with waning magic, her brother with waxing magic. Their parents raised them apart from other people, and Noon has always pretended to be a Hyrke--a human without magic.
Now Noon's 21st birthday has passed, and in this world, humans who have magic must declare it publicly before the Bryde's Day on the year they turn If they don't declare and are later found to have magic, they will be executed. Noon's best friend, Peter Aster, who's an Angel, is working to find the legendary Reversal Spell, and he is convinced that he can find it before Bryde's Day.
With the spell, he could change Noon's magic to what it is supposed to be. Unfortunately, Noon's mother has enrolled Noon in a law school where all humans with waning magic must go.

The men must train to be Maegiesters, humans who uphold demonic law and force demons to follow it, too. All Noon wants is to have the waxing magic--to be able to grow things and heal people and someday get pregnant and have children. Instead she goes to St. Lucifer's Law School, though she still has not declared her magic and is continues pretending to be an ordinary human student. On the way to school, she meets a handsome, mysterious man who saves her life. It turns out that Ari Carmine is also a law student but a Maegister student, with waning magic. Noon's emotions and magic act up when he is around, and she fears that he will find out about her magic.
Meanwhile, young magic-using women are being kidnapped by a rogue demon.
Fiery Edge of Steel
Nobody seems to be able to figure out which demon is doing it and stop it. Dark Light of Day features complex and fascinating world-building. In this world, Armageddon was fought two thousand years ago, and the Angels lost. Lucifer led his demons to victory but died in the final battle. Demons, angels, and humans try to live together in the city on Halja, built on the site of the last battle.
Humans who don't have magic must choose a patron demon they must adore and offer sacrifices. They can also appeal to their patron demons when in need. In order to keep the demons in line, men with waning magic study to become Maegisters: experts in demon law who can command demons with their destructive magic and enforce them to follow the law. But, as much as I love post—apocalyptic stories of food and fuel shortages, epidemics, and cataclysmic events, I wanted to try something different.
The idea of Armageddon having come and gone and life continuing under demon rule— but in relatively peaceful fashion — well, that was an interesting concept I wanted to explore.
