Storm and Fury (Harbinger, #1)

by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Jennifer L. Armentrout, the #1 New York Times , USA Today and internationally bestselling author of the Dark Elements novels and the Lux series, returns with book 1 of The Harbinger trilogy, a contemporary fantasy set in the world of her New York Times bestselling Dark Elements series. In this fantastical universe, gargoyle shapeshifters are sworn to guard humanity from the evils of the underworld. One guardian is about to meet a girl with an explosive secret. Should she fall into the wrong hands, her unique powers could unleash an all-out supernatural war.

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 shapeshifters 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...

4 of 5 stars

This is quite the enjoyable and entertaining story, even though it is similar to the author's other works.

Trinity is a special snowflake. Quite a few times, she'd get on my nerves with the decisions she'd take. Even though she'd say she was thinking of others, her motives would kind of be selfish, in my opinion. She does have badass aspects that I loved. Not only that, she has an eye illness that affects her vision to the point where she can go blind. This illness is the same that JLA has. It was nice to learn something new and read the author's experience through Trinity. Zayne was ever the gentleman. I honestly liked him a lot and he gave a lot to the story.

There was a lot of action involved in this one, which is something I like out of a paranormal story. Even though I didn't read the Dark Elements series, I was never lost reading this one, which I thought was great. I already knew a little of Layle and Roth, so seeing them and a few other characters in this new series was fantastic for me, especially Roth!

I enjoyed this story a lot. The only thing is that JLA's writing, even though it's amazing, it's kind of repetitive. This seemed so similar to her Covenant series, in a lot of ways. Still, it's quite entertaining and will keep you wanting more :)
