Book Review: Storm & Fury, by Jennifer L. Armentrout {The Harbinger Series, #1}

Guest review by: Becki Bayley

He looked like he was fighting a laugh. “What I’m saying is that Wardens are not pure and innocent just because of our birth. The same could be said about some demons not being evil and corrupt.”

My mouth dropped open. He was saying there were some demons that weren’t evil? That was utter crazy pants with a side of dangerous sauce. 

“Do you think that because of the half demon your clan took in?” I asked.

Everything about him changed in an instant. His jaw hardened and those eyes turned to frost. “That’s none of your concern. Is there anything else you need? If not, I have stuff to do.”

I jerked back, stung at the unexpected shutdown and obvious dismissal. “Okay, then. There’s nothing else I need.” I moved to leave, then stopped. “By the way, there’s a ghost sitting on your dresser,” I told him, and smiled evilly when I saw the blood drain from his face. “His name is Peanut, and he’s taken quite a liking to you. Have fun with that!”

I’ve seen this author’s name around a few times, but this is the first book I’ve read by her. While research shows me she’s got a few series, this spin-off from a character in another series is the first book in her new Harbinger series.

Official synopsis:
Book Review: Storm & Fury, by Jennifer L. Armentrout {The Harbinger Series, #1}
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…

If fantasy is your thing, I’d recommend this book. This is the first series I’ve read that discusses demons as real entities worth getting to know. Before meeting the demons in this book, Trinity Marrow (our main character, who is another sort of character altogether) lives with some Wardens. We humans may recognize the Wardens as the concrete gargoyles on old buildings, but in this book they can also take a human-ish form, and their job is to protect the humans from the demons.

This book is great, and I enjoyed both the characters and the unique storyline. I look forward to the next book in this series, and finding out what happens next. I’d give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
