so dangerous that she s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound guarded by Wardens, who are gargoyle shapeshifters that protect humankind from demons If demons or other Wardens were to discover the truth about Trinity, they ll stop to nothing to devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their powers Trinity dreams for some freedom outside the compound but didn t seem possible until she collides into Zayne, who is the most annoying and fascinating person she s ever met But Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again I love love love Jennifer L Armentrout s fantasy books The world building and her characters are always so well written and perfect I was a big fan of The Dark Elements series and was super excited when I came across this book last year AND a MASSIVE THANK YOU to whoever created the is cover, it s so beautiful I really enjoyed Trinity as a character Complete badass, strong, and unique She also suffers from a degenerative disease that will lead to blindness Which made her characteradmirable as it didn t limit her strength and courage The thing I really liked about Zayne s character is that he isn t the typical YA male That he s honest, loyal and gentlemanly Also isn t a complete jerk towards the female protagonist and uses his unfortunate past as an excuse, but like damn, this boy deserves some loving I LIVED for the banter and flirting between Trinity and Zayne They were so entertaining Even though it was somewhat of an instant connection between the two, there was still a lot of development Peanut was one of my favorites within the book He was one of Trinity s closest friends who also happens to be a ghost I loved how this character brought humour into every scene he was in, no matter how serious it was LOVED the character cameos from the other books Hope we getof them in the future books Can t wait for the next book Especially how it ended between Trinity and Zayne which will lead to one of my favorite tropesIsn t that evil s greatest achievement It often hides itself in innocence This book was awesome Could not put down I would recommend reading The Dark Elements series first before this one as it would make a bitsense This has been a fun, action filled and heartbreaking, yet heartwarming read Thank you, NetGalley and Harlequin Australia, for sending me an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review I ve always wondered how it was that Jennifer L Armentrout wrote so many books I have yet another ARC of hers waiting to be read this year The woman seriously publishes like three books per year, meanwhile, I ve had the same novel idea in my head for four years now and I still haven t finished writing it But oh well, let s get to the review As always, I have no idea how I felt about this book I think that s a trend for me at this point Did I love it Was it ok and nothingWas it pred I ve always wondered how it was that Jennifer L Armentrout wrote so many books I have yet another ARC of hers waiting to be read this year The woman seriously publishes like three books per year, meanwhile, I ve had the same novel idea in my head for four years now and I still haven t finished writing it But oh well, let s get to the review As always, I have no idea how I felt about this book I think that s a trend for me at this point Did I love it Was it ok and nothingWas it predictable and a bit cliche Maybe.All I know is that I was extremely entertained throughout all 500 pages of it.Jeniffer L Armentrout has an amazing talent for writing wonderfully addicting books She makes such fun and likable characters that I just can t help but want to readabout And here she s done it again with Storm and Fury I loved Trinity She was such a fun and badass character I also loved Zayne He s too cute He didn t have a bad boy complex as we see most boys in this genre of fiction have He was a decent human being or Warden, technically from the start He was charming and funny and I loved his banter with Trinity.No one will ever top Katy and Daemon from Armentrout s Lux series, but I am totally here for this ship That said, the book was very romance focused A little too much at times where there were clearly other,important issues to worry about and sometimes I wanted to roll my eyes at it all At the same time, I was nothing if not totally there for it, cheering them on.And still, I had many other problems with this book.My first issue is that this book is 500 pages long There was literally no need for that The plot didn t actually get going until almost halfway through the book This is conflicting because I spent the first half of the novel wondering when the heck the main plot was going to kick in And yet, I was flying through it, only noticing I was halfway through after taking a step back and looking at the percentage on my Kindle I barely felt the 500 pages go by I read most of this one sitting My other issue is that this book is a bit cliche Having read some of Jennifer s books, I pretty much knew what was coming I feel like there is a formula to her works A formula I love, mind you, but a formula I could see coming I called every single thing that happened in this book, down to the big reveal at the end, by like chapter nine.All of that said, I really liked this book I liked it and I need the sequel in my hands right now because I can t wait a whole year to know what comes next and to see where Trinity and Zayne s relationship is going Although, if I m honest, I could probably predict that too I ve seen some people comparing it to Cassandra Clare s works, and maybe that s a good comparison But hey, Cassandra s works are famous for a reason They are just so gosh darn entertaining Overall, I really liked this book It was fun an entertaining and I want the sequel to come out already If you like Cassandra Clare books and other urban fantasy supernatural romance types of novels, then I totally recommend this one If you don t like them, then maybe this ain t for you cause you re not gonna get anything different.I also really appreciated the fact that the main character has a disability Trinity has retinitis pigmentosa, an incurable, progressive genetic disorder that impacts your eyesight, leading you to possible blindness It s a disease that Jeniffer herself suffers from I think it was definitely interesting to see the world from the eyes of a character who can barely literally see the world And to have it be written by someone who also suffers from it makes it all thespecial and impactful.Also, this is a spinoff from Jennifer s new adult series, The Dark Elements I haven t read that series yet, but now I definitely want to Have any of you read it Do you think I should I think it would definitely add some needed background info to this world but I m unsure I m don t exactly love new adult romance Also, my TBR is already wild enough without adding this to itI received an advance copy of this book from

Armentrout, y all I really enjoyed this one and am totally kicking myself for putting it off for so long It started a little slow for me, but as soon as Trinity met Zayne, I was hooked There is a ton of action in here, some great fight scenes, humor, shocking revelations and a little bit of steam This story still has so much room to grow, as well, and left off in a superb spot for a sequel I don t know how many books are planned to be part of The Harbinger series, but you better believe, I want a front row seat for all of them Highly recommend for people looking to start a new YA Fantasy series with a touch of romance.Thank you so much, Harlequin TEEN, for providing me with a copy of this beauty to read and review I appreciate it Outstanding,Epic and simply fabulous read What a captivating

and roth s right hand man is a riot too And a shout out to one of roth s familiar s bambi the snake I don t like snakes,but she was pretty damn cool Jennifer is one hell of a storyteller and I book marked so many friggin pages and did so much talking to myself as if I was part of the story Thats how good it was I knew trinity s dad was a bad ass whoever he was,but when it was revealed I about shit myself A friggin archangel broke the rules and mated with a human woman I will tell you what angels are always depicted as sweet and kind,but trinity s father sure as hell wasnt I can see why zayne told roth to leave before he showed up,he is a massive prick Can t wait to readof zayne and trinity s story,I got a feeling the best is yet to come What girl could resist this good looking gargoyle warden,I know I couldnt And I all most forgot about baby izzy What a sweet little gargoyle child with her little wings and hugs I love this pudding eating little girl she s so precious Until

300 pages and it would have been wayentertaining and fast paced It s not like those 200 pages were needed to develop the relationship between Zayne and Trinity, as soon as they set eyes on each other boom It s insta love, baby view spoiler Which was made worse by the big revelation at the end that the two were always destined to be together I freaking hate the soulmate trope, damn it It s so overused and easy to throw in hide spoiler Seriously, this was so boring, nothing happens except for very short bursts that are over before you can realize that something s finally moving.Zayne was the most disappointing for me, though I was so excited to see him finally get something good after the treatment he received in the last book of the previous trilogy, but he has no personality at all now And he turned into the usual brooding hot and cold type He comes out of his room in just a towel and then expects Trinity not to stare That was completely ridiculous He was the total opposite of how he was in the trilogy Which makes me say can you stop writing spin offs with the same characters, Jennifer I swear, NONE of them work I prefer reading something about new characters instead of continuously getting angry after noticing that I can recognize characters only because they have the same name as before The only character I still like is Roth, and that s saying a lot He was the best of the bunch, he had a personality and he made me laugh sometimes, at least Peanut wasn t bad as well, though he s the usual stereotypical sidekick you can find in every JLA book I liked that he met someone outside of the group that can see ghosts, and I m sure that she s going to have some interesting part in this story in the next books Too bad I won t be there to witness it sarcasm mode on Trinity was the blandest main character ever, I don t even understand how I went from loving her when I was reading this book s snippets on Instagram to not caring about her in the least once I read from her perspective Her only purpose is to find the love of her life, so as soon as she meets Zayne she throws herself at him and calls it love There was a point where she says that she never cries, she hasn t even cried when her mom died, but she is about to cry because Zayne loves someone else I thought you cared about your momthan a guy you just met one or two weeks ago She was cringey and immature in her monologues, but I admit Zayne joins her in that when they banter Their cheesy dialogue gave me second hand embarrassment But that s not all, Trinity is also so nosy it s hard to stand The moment she realizes something s not right between Layla and Zayne, she immediately throws herself into the argument when she doesn t even know the story behind it Mind your own business, you idiot If the majority of the book is slow and boring, the ending is so fast you don t even enjoy having finally gotten to the point you were waiting 470 pages for view spoiler Plus, I found that the Misha plot twist had no build up or foreshadowing He suddenly turns evil and we are expected to believe that without blinking I guess I could have believed it if the reasons behind his actions had been explored , but nope It s over in two pages with the old boring Evil Monologue.The soulmate thing I ve already talked about but it still annoys me to no end hide spoiler I m probablycynical and critical now than when I read and loved other JLA books, but honestly it s like her newer stories areandwatered down versions of her old stuff and I m sick of reading books that have no dedication behind them I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS I CAN T.THE SNIPPETS ARE AMAZING AND I ALREADY LOVE THE NEW MAIN CHARACTER ALSO FINALLY ZAYNE CAN GET HIS HAPPY ENDING AND I AM SO READY FOR THAT Fingers crossed for the cover Please please please don t be corny I m guessing the sky is full of stars It is, but the only ones that matter are the ones you see This was SO GOOD It s either been too long since I ve read a JLA book or she s seriously improved as an author Idk which it is Maybe it s both I d like to mention that the MC, Trinity, like JLA herself, has a degenerative eye condition that will most likely result in blindness, and I really liked seeing how she compensated for it She didn t whinge and complain about the hand she was given, bI m guessing the sky is full of stars It is, but the only

about the hand she was given, but took it in stride and found a way to exist without depending upon her eyesight I love seeing disabilities portrayed like this It s not seen as a flaw or weakness, and nor do they magically get better, but instead, they learn how to live with it Representation like this is SO IMPORTANT This is a spinoff of the Dark Elements series, which I haven t read yet, so I don t know how it compares But it definitely stood on its own There s also enough world building that you don t feel like you re missing out on anything.The book gave me major The Mortal Instruments vibes It has angels and demons and gargoyles and ghosts I loved it all especially Peanut the ghost , but the twist broke my heart I just love Trinity and Zayne SO MUCH 3 The Dark Artifices esque solution basically made me want to SCREAM IN FRUSTRATION though WHYYY I need book two NOW WOW It has been a while since I ve read a JLA book and it was so amazing to revisit her books and this world This is the first book in this series a spinoff from the Dark Elements series I read and loved that series, but I don t believe you need to read it to enjoy this book This book was packed full of action, romance, Snark, and steam Trinity the female protagonist was smart, sassy, strong, and savvy The male protagonist Zane was well HOT OK well he WOW It has been a while since I ve read a JLA book and it

might ve had some other things going for him as well but best of all he was not a stereotypical bad boy Now if you read the previous series you re probably wondering is this THE Zane The answer is yes, yes it is And I sure am hoping this time he gets the girl There are so many characters from the previous stories that make appearances and that was a lot of fun A special shout out goes to Bambi the snake familiar We also spend quite a bit of time with Layla and Roth as well What I think JLA did so brilliantly with these characters is she introduced them just enough to remind readers of the previous series as to who they were and for those who did not read the previous series to truly understand Gargoyles, angels, demons, and witches Stellar characters, exceptional world building, and steamy romance Whatcould you want from a young adult fantasy I think what I like Everything about this book draws me in definitely one of my most anticipated reads of 2019 thank goodness for JLA, is all im saying, because her stories give me life and this is the second time where im pretty sure ive enjoyed the spin off bookthan the original series, so i dont think its an isolated incident it could be because the spin offs have been released nearly a decade after the original series, so JLA has really come into her writing, or i just happen to prefer the minor characters, who knows but im not complaining i will say, i wasnt really a fan of zayne before, bu thank goodness for JLA, is all im saying, because her stories give me life and this is the second time where im pretty sure ive

really, really liked him in this i could empathise with his grief and struggles i knew what was going to happen between him and trinity, i could see it coming a mile away, but it still got me really excited to see how the story will play out and what will happen next 4 stars
