Storm & Fury Review

Hello, all!

After binge-reading the From Blood and Ash series, I was excited to dive into other books by JLA. I started with Storm & Fury, and it was a pretty fun time!

YA - Paranormal/Fantasy

Despite her failing eyesight, eighteen-year-old Trinity Morrow still can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits due to a secret she's been keeping her entire life. Trinity may come across as human, but she's half-angel as well. Being a Trueborn puts Trinity at risk, so she's spent most of her life hiding in a compound full of Wardens-- a race of gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons-- where only a select few know her true identity.

When a neighboring clan comes to visit bearing shocking news of something powerful killing Wardens and demons, Trinity's world soon turns upside down. Trinity can't help but be drawn to this new clan, especially the frustratingly handsome Zayne, who has more than a few secrets of his own. After her bonded Protector is kidnapped during a demon raid and her secret is exposed, Trinity must work with Zayne to save the ones she loves before an all-out supernatural war breaks loose.

This had an interesting premise and I found myself quickly swept up into this world of angels, demons, and Wardens. Trinity and Zayne both had secrets they've been hiding which led to a lot of angst and melodrama, but their snark and banter balanced it out. As much as I enjoyed the characters and the overall basis, there were a few things I had issues with. One being, at times, the dialogue and phrasing choices were a bit cringe and clunky. Another was despite how long this book is, not a whole lot happened until the last 50 or so pages. Up until then it just felt like the characters were being placed where they needed to be for the plot to actually start cooking. I'm still interested enough to see where the story will go (especially between Trinity and Zayne), I'm just hoping for a bit more action in the second book.

Rating: 3/5


  1. I binged JLA's Lux series a couple of years ago and it was really fun! I'm thinking I might try the Covenant series next!
