Vampires are out and gargoyles are in, in this paranormal love story from Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Good to know
First in series
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…
Why I love it
I love reading books with the perfect mix of romance and fantasy—books that have action-heavy plots but feature intimate romances between characters you can’t help but love. So it’s no surprise that I was drawn to Storm and Fury, the start of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s new spinoff series that’s both a fast-paced adventure and a swoon-worthy romance.
The book tells the story of Trinity—a powerful 18-year-old with a gift so rare, she’s spent her life hidden under the protection of gargoyle-like Wardens. But when demons attack the compound, compromising Trinity’s safety, she’s forced to team up with Zayne, a haughty Warden from a neighboring clan whom Trinity feels inexplicably drawn to.
Armentrout creates such vivid scenes and characters that I was hooked with every chapter. There are action-packed demon battles and excellent world-building, but what I loved most about this book was getting a deeper look at the character of Zayne, a one-of-a-kind Warden who must protect Trinity no matter the costs. If you’re looking for a fast-paced read rooted in paranormal romance, I highly recommend cracking open Storm and Fury.
