Review: Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout (The Harbinger, #1)

Here's a little bit about Storm and Fury
Add on [goodreads]
Out June 11, 2019

From the #1 New York Times, USA TODAY and internationally bestselling author of the fantastical Dark Elements and the Lux series comes a new novel set in a world of gargoyle protectors, rising demons and one girl with an explosive secret.

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.

When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed…

I'm going to start this review with my recommendation to read the Dark Elements series before you start Storm & Fury. You could still follow along the story without it, but I think you should totally get immerse into the series that introduced us to this world before plunging into this gem.

So now let's get this review started even though I am lost for words at how to describe how much I love this story without spoiling this for anyone, but I will try to tell you just why I loved this book.

Okay let's start with our Heroine, Trinity Marrow. She has an kickass personally and she definitely can kick ass. She is more often than not talking without a filter which was just making this book more interesting because she wasn't really afraid to speak her mind. She is torn between her dreams of doing normal things and waiting to be call for her Duty. But she will take every opportunity she can to surpass herself no matter what. She might be going blind, but she's far from helpless and I really liked that her character wasn't feeling disable because of it; she used it to improve her other skills and she didn't let it stop her one bit.

Now onto Zayne, if you have read the Dark Elements, you already know about Zayne, but let's just say that I'm so happy that he finally gets his book. I really wanted him to have more and I was praying for Jen to write more about his character and she just didn't give us a short story or standalone, she's giving us at least a trilogy and I couldn't be happier. Okay back to Zayne... You could tell that his past still affected his decisions, but he still had this urge to protect. The difference now is probably how right and wrong aren't as black and white as he used to believe. You can tell that he's still trying to deal with everything that happened and upon meeting Trinity, it seems that he's getting more than he bargain for.

Honestly, these two together were just a perfect match. I think she's exactly what he needed to regain a bit of what he lost when everything changed for him and he steadies her when she's ready to do something recklessly.

Add characters who keep things interesting, events that will keep you on your toe until they reach their climax and you have a winning story.

Overall, this book simply has everything to hook you in from the first lines and you won't be able to put it down for a second. Once again, Jen has created characters that simply suck you into their world and you just don't want to let them go. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I think this is an amazing start to a new promising series.

I was giving an advanced copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
