Synopsis:
Enter a world of gargoyle protectors, rising demons and one girl with an explosive secret.
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…

Review:
Trinity Marrow is the last of her kind. Her DNA, as well as her organs, are coveted by many in this new supernatural world created by author Jennifer L Armentrout. Storm and Fury tells the tale of a girl with an explosive secret who up until now has been kept hidden, safe behind the walls of her community of Gargoyles, called Wardens.

This book blew my mind with the amount of representation for minority groups such as the differently abled, Trinity has a degenerative eye disease called Retinitis pigmentosa which the author suffers with herself. As well as a strong focus on the LGBT community, say hello to Trinity’s friend and sometimes roommate, Peanut the same-sex attracted, stuck in the 80’s, pervy ghost. Oh, I didn’t mention that part yet? Yes, our girl Trin can also, with her other abilities see ghosts and spirits.

It is also my first ever book for review from Netgalley, thank you so much. What first attracted me to this book you ask? Well as always with me I was hooked by the cover, but then after reading the blurb, intrigue set in. I had to find out why these Wardens from another clan arrived, what was killing both demons (that the wardens hunt and kill) and Wardens? Who is this mysterious Zayne and how is he connected to the story? All these little threads came together in this book and make for glorious reading.

Storm and Fury is a spin-off from Jennifer’s Dark Elements series but what I liked about it is that it can be read as part of that series, or as I did as a stand-alone. If you have read the Dark Elements series which includes White Hot Kiss, Stone Cold Touch and Every Last Breath, some of the characters who appear in Storm and Fury should be very familiar. Even though this is the first book I’ve read by Armentrout, I will be reading more of this series as it is released. Absolutely loved it and highly recommend picking it up!
