Vampires are out and gargoyles are in, in this paranormal love story from Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Good to know
First in series
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.
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…

This was SO good. Couldn’t stop reading; it kept me on the edge of my seat! Loved Trinity, who was both a relatable and strong female lead. The romance was great, yet didn’t eclipse the great plot.
I couldn’t put this book down! I cant believe i didn’t pick it up off up my shelf and read it sooner. A little love, a little action, a little betrayal... i had to download the 2nd book immediately!

I needed this book in my life. I needed these characters. I needed this story. I’m shook by all the twists and direction changes of this book. It also had just the right amount of sexual tension.

I loved this book. I hadn't ever read a book about gargoyles before and this book was interesting and I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for book 2 to come out and to get more books by this author.
I didn't read the original series, so I was worried I would get lost in this world. Luckily, that's not the case! Great worldbuilding and snappy dialogue created a dynamic novel I couldn't put down.
Great read, action packed and some steamy heat. First book I read from this author and I had to read tbe first three books before this with Roth and Layla. Cant wait for the next book to come out.
I couldn’t put the book down and it kept me enthralled! The main character, Trinity, is very relatable and is a strong female lead. Definitely would recommend if you like supernatural type books.

Loved this book! Trinity was a strong female lead who didn’t let anyone tell her what to do. Even with her budding romance, she stuck to her principles. Can’t wait for the rest of the books!
LONG BEACH, CA
Such an amazing adventure!! Love with a forbidden twist! Couldn’t put it down. If you’re looking for a sexy romance with adventure this is your book. Gargoyles is definitely the new Vampire.
Omg awesome. The main character is snarky, strong, but also reminds you of how you felt when you were a teenager. Without being cringy. The love interests are a lot more real then most as well.
Already a huge fan of her Dark Elements series, I was thrilled to see more in that world. This book is filled with wonderful characters, amazing world building, and an engaging plot! 5 stars!

I loved this story and the main characters. I appreciated that the romance was there but did not consume the story or the main characters every thought. Can't wait for the rest in the series!
I devoured this book. Everything I'm into- a bit of fantasy, a bit of drama and a bit of romance. I loved it so much, I bought the Dark Elements Series and I'm plowing through those as well!

JLA has been a long time favorite of mine. I was so excited about this one! She did not disappoint me that was for sure! Another hit with an amazing plot, and characters that become family!
Holy Freakin' Crap! This is a must-read for all who enjoy reading about angels, demons, and other things paranormal. I loved this book and I can't wait to read the sequel: Rage and Ruin!

Reading this book kept me on edge, was unsure about it at first, but after the first chapter I couldn’t put it down and upon finishing it I was anxious for a sequel. I loved this book.
I started this book right before bed, expecting to read a few chapters before sleeping. It's 7 am, the book is done, and I'm currently pre-ordering the next one in the series. So good!
