Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the first in a brand new YA Fantasy series from the Bestselling Author of the Lux series and MORE!
“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…“
I loved this world!
From all the paranormal creatures to the action-packed scenes, this YA Fantasy is what I’ve been waiting for.
We follow a unique character who isn’t a human like you’d expect. She’s the key they all need, and almost no one knows her secret, including the Wardens who are guarding her with their lives. But she’s tired of sitting on the sidelines.
Her fierce personality is put to the test when she defies all the rules and hits the threat head-on. She even has a disability with her sight that she doesn’t let overcome her! Instead, she embraces it and uses her other senses to fight (which she’s pretty good at).
She can even see ghosts and spirits! *insert grabby hands*
My favorite part of this book is the world building. All the creepy creatures just sucked me in from the demons to the gargoyles. I loved reading the intricate web that they fall under with the bonds they create and the ‘rules‘ their society follow between each other. It’s definitely something I haven’t seen in YA.
This is a spinoff series based in The Dark Elements world, but since I’ve never read those books, I can’t comment too much on that.
But overall, I really enjoyed this book. There are swoon-worthy moments, tons of action-packed scenes, and an ending that leaves you wanting the next book (but thankfully doesn’t involve a cliffhanger).
I gave this one 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend for paranormal or supernatural fans!
