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...

[So just FYI; If I were rich, and um... Oprah... I’d probably give a nice hardcover copy of this to everyone- you get a copy, and you get a copy, and you get a copy! And YOU get a copy! Hand it out on the streets, do giveaways, you know... whatevs :-P ] !!!!


So, firstly, let’s talk about the Main Character:

Trinity: Trinity is “special,” in that she’s an extremely powerful (half) supernatural being... and the last of her kind. So, it kinda comes with the whole “special” territory that she needs a whole Compound full of Wardens to guard & protect her from evil/ MEGA EVIL and keep her very existence a secret because she’s, well, (as much as I hate to say it because, you know, tropes and all) & don’t cringe (!) ... a “Chosen One.” She is the last hope when the world goes dark. Because of this, she has been trained to fight her whole life, & with supernatural strength, can completely kick ass, & (more than) hold her own. She can even best Wardens! She can also see & talk to ghosts & spirits, & helps them “move on.”
One Catch: she’s almost completely blind! That pretty much makes it super hard to fight, and she generally has to rely on her “spidey-sense” to fight, & well, live. She’s got it down pat, but it doesn’t make it easy to be the “chosen one” !
