Summary

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....

Enjoyable romantic fantasy adventure

Jennifer L. Armentrout clearly likes certain tropes: unusually special girl, soldier-type love interest, mythical bonds, love triangles etc. This being only my second JLA series, I’m not finding it too repetitive yet and I think her plot development has gained more subtlety than is evident in the Covenant series. It’s a creative and enjoyable read - pretty heavy in the romance (I’ve never seen dry humping described as the height of passion before). I like the fact that the heroine has a disability yet doesn’t let it hold her back. The narration is good, the timbre of the male voices isn’t great, but it works enough. I would read the next instalment.

The perfect story!

Oh wow! I loved loved loved this! I have been so picky lately about books and narrators but this audible version of Storm and Fury was perfect! The book itself had everything- an brilliant plot, fabulous characters; perfect amount of romance, action, trill, intrigue and paranormal/ fantasy elements. I haven’t felt like this about a book series in a while. I kept wanting to return to it and my mind was constantly drawn to the story - I couldn’t keep myself away. I finished this very very quickly and need to start book two ASAP! I prefer this series to The Dark Elements series (although that was just as brilliant, this series was even better!) Jennifer L Armentrout is definitely my go to author this year! What a talent! And a big high five to Lauren Fortgang for once again delivering a flawless read. Every voice she reads is brilliant! 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Juvenile

This book should be directed to pre-teens or young adult. The dialogue is immature. I had to return this one.

Supernatural Vibe - Excellent Listen!

What an amazing listen! The narrator did a wonderful job! Really love the characters in this book Zayne (from The Dark Elements series) is one of my favorite characters! If you haven’t read The Dark Elements series first, I would recommend you do so before listening to this book. Trinity is a super witty and fun character. There are a lot of twists in this one. Especially towards the end of the book. If you like paranormal romance and the show Supernatural, you should definitely give this book a try!

Continuation of Zayne/Layla/Roth's Story

I'd previously enjoyed the story of these three characters (Zayne/Layla/Roth) and was delighted to have them smoothly fold into this one. This story added another strong female to their group without a sense of it being forced. As a separate story, Trinity's character was well developed in her own right. That allowed for a distancing from & developing perspective regarding Zayne & Layla's deep & complex relationship. In this way, the new emotional connection between Zayne & Trinity was allowed to emerge organically and without a sense of anyone's established arch being betrayed. I look forward to hopefully seeing their stories now merge completely and carry forward together from here to save us all.

ALL the stars in the sky!!!

This was such a wild, amazing ride and a great listen. My emotions are all over the place but I just have to let them lose in writing because I can’t contain my excitement over this book. This world is beyond unique and it was so good to be back. The narration was so spot-on and I enjoyed this audio version of the book so much. I have to confess I wasn’t #TeamZayne when reading The Dark Elements series, but boy, the tables have turned now. He’s moved to the top of my BBFs list. Zayne was this intimidating and a bit moody Warden dealing with his own issues from the past. But he was so kind and loving, just the way I remembered him from before. Trinity was such a sweetheart and even though she had all these powers and intriguing qualities surrounding her character, she was going through some very human emotions and insecurities. I loved her instantly. The banter between them was hilarious and sexy at the same time. I might have giggled like a schoolgirl with their exchanges. It was a slow-burning romance, gradually built, but so so beautifully written. I read and reread some parts over and over to savor each word. There were also some seriously steamy scenes and the chemistry was off the charts hot. But there were also intense battles and nail-biting moments that I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to see what happens. Crazy action, danger lurking at every corner and a strong female lead that I fell head over heels in love with. That’s what you’re getting into with this book. It was obvious this story was so personal for Jen. You could feel it in every word and every reference to this disease she is dealing with herself. I’m more in awe with her as a writer after reading this book. It requires a lot of strength and courage to do what she does having her condition. And I admire her even more for that now. The emotions were front and center in this book but combined with all the fast-paced battles, lovable characters, poignant backstories, touching romance and intriguing plot and this story turned into the perfect package. Add to that some very clear messages with life truths inside that made me think and really appreciate the little things we take for granted. And you got yourself an unforgettable experience. Besides, the narration transferred all the emotions from the story and then some. Great job in this department. The book-hangover is guaranteed because this would surely be your next favorite book. Consider yourself warned.

Amended; Ok I actually loved this

At first, I couldn't get through this book. The protagonist came off as whiney and cliche and nothing felt new or really grabbed me. Then, because I was in a book hole, I kept listening. And I have to say I'm really quite glad that I did. Something I appreciate that this author accomplished extremely well, was illustrating what consent actually is. An enthusiastic, freely given, continuous agreement. I think that having a fantasy novel demonstrate this is so important. Often 'romance' is written as kind of rapey culture, so I actually have to says hats off to the chef for so poignantly and accurately putting what consent looks like into practice. *************************************SPOILERS AHEAD************************************* I kept listening because I had nothing else, but by the time I got to the end, I was listening non-stop. The protagonist goes through a real journey and the other character development is spot on. I will even say the plot thickened nicely, and I did not see it coming. On that note, I did not see it coming. And part of me feels like this is (if you haven't seen the Disney movie Frozen, the following contains spoilers) was pulled a Hanz and the villain kind of comes out of nowhere, almost to the point of being unbelievable. I will say the romance is as described, slow burning and delicious. For the protagonist, I kind of wish she had more going for her. I like that she has a disability, I like that she's not white. And I appreciate that she grows a lot along her journey. But there was something missing. I'm not sure what. She was badass. But I guess it was hard that she was so desperate to be loved ... I mean, I understand its a major thrust of the plot. But I always appreciate a strong female protagonist who doesn't need a man. I guess maybe that's reductionist of me, and it isn't unfeminist to want to find love. I think it just made me a bit squeamish because the thought of finding one's life partner at 18 seems too young. But in either case, glad I stuck it out.

I miss the stars

I went legally blind when i was a child, i haven't been able to really see stars in about twenty years, so i really sympathize with the main character. too bad she will more than likely get some deus ex machine thingy that will make it all better in the end. but for now i am totally feeling this character. As for the story, well i am enjoying it much better than the first trilogy. Speaking of, i kept bursting out laughing every time Leyla was talking. I'm not sure why but the narrator apparently went with phone sex operator and no one told her to stop. it was hilarious. Actually both Roth and Leyla came off as somewhat creepy in this book do to the narration. I kind of liked it, gives a kind of reinterpretation of the characters through another's eye's kind of feel.. Overall the book was pretty great even if it did play into the miscommunication or just refusing to communicate bit a little to hard, Ground breaking for teen novels this story is not. Still i liked it and i liked the protagonists Not an easy feat when it comes to these types of books for me. So i look forward to the next book. P.S. The "sex" scene was a little confusing sense the author was being somewhat too vague about it, to the point that i wasn't entirely sure what they were doing. Naked dry humping? Lol kind of gross considering it mentioned they both came and there was no mention of cleaning afterwards, they just went to sleep. ew

I LOVED IT!

It’s been a very long time since I enjoyed a book this much! The pilot was great and the writing was hilarious and so clever! There were times when I was laughing out loud and other moments when I was crying. It is so well written and the narration was awesome and really added a lot to the story! Overall one of my top ten books ever!

I wasn't expecting this!!!

I read the book details and thought I'd give it a try. I didn't think it was going to be this good. I thought this was going to be about some sheltered girl who after years of being hidden and protected would have to go into the real world and hey life experience. Trinity is hidden, but she is no soft flower. She is power and strength. She longs to go beyond the walls of the gargoyle compound with her protector Meesha to fulfill their destiny. But when visiting gargoyles come for a visit to the compound things shift. Zayne seems to know where she is or where she's going to be. Their attraction to each other is very steamy. So when someone she loves is taken she will have to rely on Zayne to help her navigate between what she was taught and what's really truth to get her loved one back.

Perfect Companion to the Book!

I had read the book at least twice prior to listening to it, so I knew I would love the story. I was nervous about the presenter because I hadn’t heard her before and had been disappointed with performers of some other books. In this case, Lauren Fortgang did a terrific job creating a range of voices that were spot on, at least how I imagined them to be. She captured personalities and moods that brought Jennifer’s characters to life and gave me a whole new experience with the story. I’m looking forward to listening to Lauren’s performance of Rage and Ruin, which is one of my favorite books of 2020 (one of the only good things to come out of 2020). FYI: There are a couple of chapters that should probably not be listened to while driving, lol.
