Justice is a trilogy fantasy novel set in medieval Aragon. It is a long story about Sophie and her adventure discovering some shocking murders by a tremendous vial killer. The mysterious story moved from the 13th century to modern-day London, which was interesting to me.
The dialogues are long, and since the story is detailed, there were bound to miss a few important notes. The love between the two main characters was powerful, and it became repetitive or too much at times. The story also possess

"Justice is the opening book in The Black Shade of White trilogy by Cattleya, a novel with a magical setting, phenomenal characters, and strong themes that are intelligently developed... Justice by Cattleya is an inspirational novel filled with magical realism, a story that can be imagined as taking place on the spiritual plane. It is filled with action and readers can easily relate to the characters... I enjoyed the insightful writing and the numerous reflections on diverse topics, including li ...more

It is a very dense book. There is a lot happenning or being said, and the story is very great. There's a great work at constructing the tales in different periods, and all of those making sense.

I loved the investigation part. It's a story inside the story, even if it's part of the main one, and it shows the character of Sophie. Even if her exterior beauty will be insisted upon, at least the inside mentionned has been shown, instead of just mentionned.
Also, she is strong, but by showing traditio

The Black Shade of White: Justice is the first of a trilogy!

It’s a very lengthy book, so at first I was quite hesitant to start it. If you love fantasy with a side of mystery and sometimes some gruelling scenes this book is definitely your cup of tea.
However do be careful if you are sensitive to these scenes!

I definitely did not expect the story to go like it went going in.

Once you finish the prologue and actually get to the actual storyline it made me want to read on to know what happened. Of

This extremely long tale starts off with a real air of epic fantasy about it, as we parry back and forth between the Heavenly Kingdom of the angels and northern Spain, at the turn of the 13th century. As the celestial beings come into conflict, and some fall, there is the promise of mighty things to come in this 750-page odyssey. After the opening quarter, however, we find ourselves in modern-day London for the duration of the book, which is perhaps a touch disappointing (no less for me than bec ...more

The Black Shade of White - Justice is more than a fiction novel. Of course, it has aspects of fiction, but in between real life stories and real life topics that actually matter. The plot literally engages you into wanting to keep reading, to an addictive extent I would say, but only in the good kind of way - the kind of way of not willing to put the book down, even though it is late at night and you know you have to do it, because the next morning you have to get up early, so you do it, but ver ...more

I enjoyed this book too things I didnt like were the Spanish (which I have since learnt the translation was at cover) that I didnt understand and the too much detail was use for the clothing and the designers. It was a good read, romance, faith, spirituality, friendship you'll find it here I am looking forward to the next book in this series. ...more

When I decided to read “the black shade of white” I was expecting a fantasy world related to angles and demons from a biblical perspective but with genuine contemporary characters involved in interesting turn of events and goings-on; A world somehow similar to Cassandra Clare’s “mortal instruments” when we were dealing with ordinary people with a bit of extraordinary ability, some clear different rules, and a whole lot of action. But instead, I’ve found an ordinary world with some supernatural c ...more
