Blog Tour: Review of Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Author; Jennifer L. Armentrout 
Publisher: Inkyard Press
Date of publication: June 2019

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…

My thoughts:

Storm and Fury is the first book in a new spin-off series that takes place dark Elements world.  The one thing that I did like was I didn't feel it was necessary to to have read the Dark Elements trilogy before reading this one.  I was able to pick up on the world and how it worked fairly easily.  That being said, this ended up be just OK for me.  I had a hard time connecting with the writing.  I found some of the dialogue a bit cheesy and that kept taking me out of the story.  I also found Trinity to be a bit annoying.  Maybe I'm just over reading about characters who keep pushing the boundaries at the expense of other peoples safety.  I think fans of this author's fantasy series will enjoy this one.  So, I encourage you to give it a try.  It just wasn't for me.
