I love this book soooo much!! I already have the hardback preordered!

Trinity is something very special and she’s living with the gargoyles so they can keep her safe and hidden. Misha is bonded to her as her guardian/protector.

Some bad things start happening and another clan comes for a visit to ask for help. There is something out there killing the Wardens/Gargoyles and demons.

Zayne is with the group that comes to visit and try to figure things out. Zayne, swoon! Anyhoo!

thank goodness for JLA, is all im saying, because her stories give me life.

and this is the second time where im pretty sure ive enjoyed the spin-off book more than the original series, so i dont think its an isolated incident. it could be because the spin-offs have been released nearly a decade after the original series, so JLA has really come into her writing, or i just happen to prefer the minor characters, who knows? but im not complaining!

Demons and Gargoyles and Chosen Ones...

18-year-old Trinity Marrow has a special gift. She can see and commune with ghosts and spirits.

This isn't her only gift however, there is a lot that makes Trinity special.

Due to her unique nature, she has been hidden away from the world, residing at an isolated compound with the Wardens protecting her.

What are Wardens, you may ask?

They are a group of gargoyle shape-shifters protecting mankind from demons, of course.

I've always wondered how it was that Jennifer L. Armentrout wrote so many books. I have yet another ARC of hers waiting to be read this year. The woman seriously publishes like three books per year, meanwhile, I've had the same novel idea in my head for four years now and I still haven't finished writing it!

But oh well, let's get to the review!!

As always, I have no idea how I felt about this book. I think that's a trend for me at this point. Did I love it? Was it ok and nothing more? Was it pred

Aaannd the award goes to... Storm & Fury! For making me hate, or better, not care a single bit about Zayne, one of my favorite characters from the Dark Elements series, and for downgrading Jennifer from my favorite authors list.

Did this even need to be 500 pages long? It could have been easily only 300 pages and it would have been way more entertaining and fast-paced. It’s not like those 200 pages were needed to develop the relationship between Zayne and Trinity, as soon as they set eyes on each

This was SO GOOD. It’s either been too long since I’ve read a JLA book or she’s seriously improved as an author. Idk which it is. Maybe it’s both.

I'd like to mention that the MC, Trinity, like JLA herself, has a degenerative eye condition that will most likely result in blindness, and I really liked seeing how she compensated for it. She didn't whinge and complain about the hand she was given, b

Storm and Fury is the first installment in The Dark Elements spin-off series. The story follows eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow who has the ability to communicate with ghost and spirits. Her unique gift is a secret so dangerous that she's been in hiding for years in an isolated compound guarded by Wardens, who are gargoyle shapeshifters that protect humankind from demons.

WOW! It has been a while since I’ve read a JLA book and it was so amazing to revisit her books and this world. This is the first book in this series a spinoff from the Dark Elements series. I read and loved that series, but I don’t believe you need to read it to enjoy this book. This book was packed full of action, romance, Snark, and steam. Trinity the female protagonist was smart, sassy, strong, and savvy. The male protagonist Zane was well HOT... OK well he

I loved being back in this world. Yes, this is a spinoff series but I highly recommend reading the other trilogy! You know what the best thing in the world is? Gargoyles!

Okay, so I'm going to start out and say I did not like this one as much as the first trilogy! While I didn't love it, I definitely liked it, though! This book is pretty big, like 535 pages! I think if the first half had been cut about 100 - 150 pages it would have helped because things really get going in the second half!

Although I am not a fan of insta-love and teen romance, this story/world was extremely well written!

Even though this was the start of a spin off series I have not read, I was truly invested in the characters and their lives. The conclusion was action packed and one of the most surprising I've read in the YA fantasy genre. Due to a few isolated erotic scenes, I recommend for YA readers, 14+.

I loved it ! Was it really over 500 pages ? It felt short, I was left wanting more. Sure I missed sleep and maybe a couple social functions so I could stay home and read. Don't judge it was so good. Action packed, heartwarming, heartbreaking, sexy, and interesting. The world created was unique, an slowly unraveled, no info dumping :D.

“Do you want to see the stars?” Zayne asked, and I nodded emphatically, knowing what he meant, and when he took my hand, I folded my fingers over his like I had the day I’d left the community. I felt him begin to shift, his skin hardening under mine. “Then hold on tight, Trin. I’m going to get us as close as we can go.”

Storm and Fury, or judging by how this book destroyed me, Storm and all the FEELS.

I need to get one thing off my chest before delving into this review. Some readers don't mind picking up a spinoff if there's little to no character overlap (though, honestly, how can you really know beyond the fact that the leads are different?) but I am not that kind of reader. I like context. I thrive off it. I like references that harken back to previous events, I love cameos, etc, particularly when it's a world that relies on context or worldbuilding; so sometimes I can roll with it if it's ...more

Well ladies and gents, this was a book I ran to the bookstore on my lunch break on release day to purchase. Basically, one of my most anticipated books of 2019. And while I enjoyed it, it did not live up to my expectations.

Zayne was the character I was rooting for in The Dark Elements series, and when he not only lost the girl but became a completely different character, I was very mad at JLA for that because I felt he deserved more. Flash forward to now.... and I didn't really get th

I'm a huge JLA fan. Her stories always make me feel all fuzzy and happy on the inside. However I wasn't a big fan of her Dark Elements series so I wasn't really sure what to expect from this.

I am very happy to say I enjoyed this. The gargoyles, the action, the special snowflake who, for once, didn't feel sorry for her powers, the angst. I see some things that could get annoying in

This was my first book by Jennifer L. Armentrout and definitely not the last one. What a great story, with a lot of secrets, Demons, Angels, Ghosts, Witches, Gargoyles and romance. Trinity is very likable character and I want to read more about her. Storm and Fury is the first book in the spinoff series of The Dark Elements. Overall, reading was easy and pleasurable.

Sassy. Addicting. B-E-A-utiful
This was hands-down the best work of JLA yet. I'm blown away by how fascinating a read this turned out to be. I look to JLA when I need a read to be entertaining, but this? This was near-perfection. This is another of those spin-offs that was so well developed in terms of character arcs and plot; JLA was a queen of keeping the plot simple, easily followable, there were times when her writing was interesting and yet I didn't find it notable or other-worldly.

First Reread (June 1 2020): I still adore this book! I reread this in preparation for the second book getting released on June 9th. Still an amazing story, with fantastic characters and very good world-building. Note: The second time around with the audio book I swear that about 3 or 4 hours to the end of the narration the narrator calls Roth "Ross". I cackled so hard at that!

Storm & Fury was an addicting, emotional ride! I absolutely loved being back in this world and that Zayne got his own story. It was so much more than I ever could have hoped for! There was a slow burn romance, a kick ass girl, a sexy protective male and friendship, lust, sacrifice, trust and banter filled the pages. If you're a fan of JLA or paranormal romance, then you definitely have to add this one to your tbr!

This was awesome and I'm slowly but surely falling in love with Armentrout and her writing with every book of hers that I read. They're addicting as hell and so entertaining with fantastic characters. Also, she made me like Zayne. It feels blasphemous to even say that but it's true.

Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the first book of the new young adult romantic paranormal fantasy The Harbinger series. Now, while this is a start to a whole new series it is not the first time readers have visited the world within as this one is a spin off to the author’s Dark Elements series. One would probably be curious how this new series would work if you haven’t read the older series and it’s safe for me to say it read fine as this is actually the first book ever by Jennifer L ...more

Offended, I glared at him. “No, I’m not.”
“Okay, let me rephrase that. You’re argumentative.”
