Noble Heart – Jody Klaire

Noble Heart – Jody KlaireBook five of the epic Above and Beyond Series and this is the best yet. It’s sometimes hard to find new things to say about a series, but this one continues to go from strength to strength.

in Noble Heart we find the usual cast led by Aeron Lorelei, Commander Renee Black and General Ursula Frei, along with regulars like Nan and Jessie, on another thrilling adventure.

This plot is extremely fast paced, action packed and takes some keeping up with. As the series progresses it seems to become more complex, which is hard to imagine but nevertheless true. Despite the almost frenetic pace Klaire fits in moments of stillness and quiet personal interactions which ground and solidify the whole, bringing ever more depth and development to what are already extra-ordinarily well-developed characters.

As the story unfolds the three lead women’s rapport continues to strengthen and is infused with more humour and banter as each novel evolves. In this episode we watch as  the relationship between the various “baddies” from earlier books starts to resolve and we learn just how and why Frei grew up a slave with somewhat special privileges and protections.

At the centre of it all Aeron must use her strength, her powers and that hero quality she doesn’t realise she has to change the word around her, bringing out the best in some and highlighting the worst in others, exposing them for the evil they are with nothing more than her very “Noble Heart”.

Action/Thriller/Mystery with supernatural thrown in and the slowest burning romance ever written, these books really are a delightful Pandora’s box of joy. The characters, their interactions, the very writing just oozes love, laughter and affection, and despite bloody special agent combat and child trafficking horrors, they make you smile with the warmth they imbue.

Ignore the genre, these books are just brilliant. If you haven’t read them yet you really are missing a treat.
