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.

Demons and Gargoyles and Chosen Ones...

18-year-old, Trinity Marrow, has a special gift; she can commune with spirits.

This is far from her only gift however, there is a lot that makes Trinity a special girl.

Due to her unique nature, she has been hidden away from the world, residing at an isolated compound with Wardens protecting her. What are the Wardens, you may ask?

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

Trinity spends her days wandering around

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!

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
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

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

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.

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+.

4.25 and 4.5 didn’t feel right, so here we are at 4.35.

I thoroughly enjoyed it! Storm and Fury’s the first YA fantasy novel I picked up and kept at lately, and I’m just so happy to be back in the world of angels and demons and gargoyles.

The book read pretty fast, though it is pretty lengthy. The hardcover stands at 504 pages, but I only found a few of the chapters average. Overall, the book read great! I don’t know if it’s my specific copy or if this is throughout the latest round of publ

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
Demons, Angels, Ghosts, Witches and Gargoyles oh my.
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. It's basically about Wardens (Gargoyles), and others who protect our world from demons. When the demons get te

“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.”

Second Reread (June 5 2021): WOW! Almost exactly one year later I finished my second full reread of this book. I was supposed to have had this read by June 1 2021 because the third book released then. I may have completely forgotten about it...oops. I'm pretty sure this is the only book that I've ever read cover to cover 3 whole times. So that's a new and exciting record for me! It was just as amazing as all the other times I read it. I still cackled at the Ross mention though!

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.

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.

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

“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.”
