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 received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
Are they ever authors that you just want to binge? I swear, every single time I read a JLA book, I want to go back and re-read everything she’s ever written. Storm and Fury was absolutely no exception. A few weeks ago when I learned that I would be receiving a copy of this book, I picked up the original trilogy this spins off from and DEVOURED it in three days. Then, I had to wait another week for this beauty to hit my doorstep and I thought I was going to die of deprivation. Death by book deprivation? Is that a thing? If it is, I’m sure GRRM has killed plenty of his readers by now.
First of all, this is a spin off series, BUT you don’t have to have read the original trilogy to enjoy Storm and Fury. That being said, I enjoyed this book much more because the cameos were more enjoyable. I had a good sense of the world and really was able to delve right back into it. Fortunately for you folks reading this review, you have a whole month before this bad-boy comes out! Plenty of time to pick up White Hot Kiss and fall in love with Roth, Layla and Zayne.
Speaking of Zayne….ZAYNE!! I was so happy to see that he was such a prominent character in this new series. I adored his character in the original trilogy and can’t wait to see where JLA goes with him in this series.
Storm and Fury was absolutely unputdownable. It did have a slower start as JLA introduced me to the characters and set the scene a bit, but that’s typical for the first book in a new series. The second half of the book took off like a freaking rocket though. Things were constantly in motion, new plots and subplots were revealed, and JLA had me at the edge of my seat.
I DEFINITELY recommend this one to all of my YA reader friends out there. You won’t be disappointed.
