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…

Storm and Fury was an interesting and engaging read that I finished in just two days. I enjoyed the premise, and Trinity was a fun character. The twists worked well, and a couple I didn't guess ahead of time. There was enough world building to get a sense of things, but occasionally I would have liked a little more. Since finishing, though, I have discovered this is a spin-off from another series, so it may be the author expects readers to be familiar with that, hence the limited information. It certainly didn't stop me understanding what was happening in this book or enjoying the story, so it's a minor gripe. Interestingly, my favourite character in this work was Roth, and it looks like he was one of the principal figures in the Dark Elements trilogy, so perhaps I should go back and read those now, to get more of him! As for this series, I would certainly read on to book two, to see what will happen to Trinity and Zayne next.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
