by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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…
Surprisingly, this is my first Jennifer L. Armentrout book. I know! I was definitely not disappointed as Armentrout's Storm and Fury is most definitely full of badass and action. She has fantastic world building and the characters are extremely easy to be invested in. I do believe that I would benefit more if I read the original series that this was a spin off from (I had no idea when I picked up this book to review - apparently it's a spinoff from The Dark Elements series).
Trinity is such a strong character that proves strength and resilience beyond the degenerative disease that will ultimately change her life forever. However, Armentrout has written her so well that we are left feeling that Trinity can handle anything and everything thrown at her - this is definitely a major plus for me. I love reading strong female characters. This book is definitely worth picking up!
