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!

Fingers crossed for the cover. Please please please don’t be corny.
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 predi

"You want to be wanted, and there's nothing wrong with that, Trin. Not at all."

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.

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+.

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.

“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.”

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

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.

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.

I read The Problem with Forever and loved it. I always wanted to get into Jennifer L. Armentrout's more popular series. Well I finally took the plunge with this spin-off series from The Dark Elements series. I didn't realize this was a paranormal romance series but it sure ended up being a wild ride...

I actually don't get the title... Storm and Fury doesn't really make sense?! And I'm not sure I even get the teal feather wing on the cove
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

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

So because this was my first book by JLA, and coming into her style without having read anything else by her I didn’t really see what the fuss was all about. But I was probably the wrong audience.

Overall the book was well written, a bit juvenile at times, but it’s a YA, so that can be expected. But nevertheless it was entertaining.

Unfortunately there were a couple things that didn’t mesh with me. It started with quite a few aspects that were too easily explained, actually often there wasn’t even

She's lived sheltered in a compound since she was a young child where she's been raised by Wardens, who are shape shifting gargoyles that were trained to protect humans and fight demons.

I absolutely adored Armentrout's Dark Elements trilogy and when I saw that she was releasing a new book set in the same world of the Wardens, I knew it was something I had to try.

I'm so excited that Armentrout decided to resurrect this series. It really is so much fun and truly completely unique.

Not only do we get a continuation of the series but this time with a new unique character but, we get to see many old favorites as well.

It couldn't have been any more fun if it tried.

I didn't enjoy Storm and Fury. The plot is off. The language used in the novel is so teen oriented and annoying. The elements of romance in the novel is also cheesy.
Storm and Fury was a total let down.
I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Storm and Fury is, and was, one of those books that I just had to have! I was so happy when I got the approval email from NetGalley but I did end up hesitating diving into it. As to why? Well, I had a crap ton of other ARCs I needed to dive into because I was definitely slacking in that department. Luckily for me, I have definitely stopped slacking and have been pretty good at reading ARCs now. Woohoo!!

-I haven’t read the other books in this series/universe but I had no difficulties to catch up! The world of the Wardens (Gargoyles) was explained with enough details throughout the book that I could fall into it happily.


-I liked reading the book as it’s kind of addictive and I stayed on my couch just the whole afternoon because I wanted to know how it would end.

“You’re hard to talk to,” Zayne said after a moment.
Offended, I glared at him. “No, I’m not.”
“Okay, let me rephrase that. You’re argumentative.”
“No, I’m not.”
Zayne stared at me, as if me arguing with him just then was proof enough of what he claimed.
It was sort of proof of what he claimed, and that irritated me.”
“What are you going to do if it does get worse?” he asked.
“Maybe I’ll get myself a seeing-eye gargoyle.”
Zayne chuckled. “I can be that for you.”
“Uh, yeah, I feel like you’d grow very bored of that.”
“I don’t think so.” His fingers curled around my chin, bringing my gaze back to his. Air hitched in my throat. “I don’t think…there’s ever a boring second around you.”
