Review: Storm and Fury - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

Enter 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…

Storm and Fury
By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Storm and Fury

A girl hides a game-changing secret, while someone—or something—hunts Wardens and demons alike in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s exhilarating series starter, STORM AND FURY.

Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow has grown up amidst Wardens (gargoyle shape shifters) who guard a dangerous secret and protect her from those who would seek her out. And although she’s going blind, Trinity can still see and communicate with ghosts and spirits, and train alongside the best of the Wardens.

The trouble she’s been training for may come sooner than later, however, as a group from another clan brings news that something is hunting both Wardens and demons. One of those outsiders includes the golden-haired Zayne (The Dark Elements), who hides secrets of his own.

Trinity and Zayne share a fascination for each other, despite their endless verbal sparring. But things turn serious when demons breach the compound, and Trinity’s entire world upends. She must trust Zayne as he helps her sets things right, and figure out what or whom is after them, especially since it’s clear someone knows who she really is.

Armentrout delivers a superb paranormal romance brimming with thrills, action and her signature, whip-smart humor. This is the first book in the Harbinger series which expands and deepens the world we came to know in The Dark Elements. It has all the vintage JLA feels I fell in love with in the days of the Covenant series and it was so much fun to read that I devoured all 500+ pages in less than a day.

I loved our heroine, Trinity, who is smart, strong, irresistibly snarky and so relatable. I fell in love all over again with Zayne, whose inner turmoil following the events of EVERY LAST BREATH left him sort of stuck and isolated. And then there’s Peanut, who is one of my favorite new characters in this world… you will love him!

Armentrout also stirs an important conversation deeply personal to her, around those with disabilities we cannot always see. Trinity lives with a degenerative eye disease (as does Armentrout) which can lead to blindness. The very real difficulties she struggles with and yet endures, are a testament to her strength.

With compelling, quirky characters, non-stop action, and plot twists aplenty, STORM AND FURY is the summer blockbuster we’ve all been waiting for.

Note: You do not need to read The Dark Elements series to read this book, but the story is much richer if you do.
