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…

In Review: My Thoughts

There’s no way I can talk about Storm and Fury without mentioning The Dark Elements series. There will be spoilers for that series in my review, so if you’ve not read it and think you might, just stop reading now. Of course, if you’re interested in Storm and Fury, you really need to read The Dark Elements first… Or at least you do if you want the full story.

I was so psyched when Jen announced she was writing a story for Zayne. I loved him in TDE. Ok, not as much as Roth. Or maybe just in a different way than Roth, but I still loved him. He definitely deserved a story (and hopefully a HEA) of his own. He was just as good in this book as I remembered. Trinity is an excellent match for him. I enjoyed how they played off each other and how protective they were of each other when shit hit the fan. Which, of course, it did. But, I’m not going to tell you anything about that. Enjoy the roller coaster ride on your own.

I thoroughly enjoyed being back in a world with angels and sexy, protective gargoyles again. Seriously, who but Jen could make me swoon over a gargoyle? I love the new characters and was so happy to see old faves Roth, Layla and Zayne again. One of my favorite things about this book is how Jen wove her personal experience with Retinitis pigmentosa into the story. It was educational and added another layer to the story. The Harbinger series is off to a very strong start and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Favorite Quotes:

“I’m willing to wager that there isn’t one thing ordinary about you.”

“I’m guessing the sky is full of stars?”
“It is, but the only ones that matter are the ones you see.”
