Goodreads Summary:

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 Review:

I loved being back in this world. Yes, this is a spinoff series but I highly recommend reading the other trilogy! You know what the best thing in the world is? Gargoyles!

Okay, so I’m going to start out and say I did not like this one as much as the first trilogy! While I didn’t love it, I definitely liked it, though! This book is pretty big, like 535 pages! I think if the first half had been cut about 100 – 150 pages it would have helped because things really get going in the second half!

Another issue is I liked Trinity, but I loved Layla more from the other trilogy, and again, it was hard for me to not compare the two. The cool thing about Trinity is she has a disability with her eyesight but she doesn’t let it get the best of her! Those aspects were so amazing! Also, we do get cameos from characters from the other books and that was incredibly exciting!

Let me talk about Zayne for a minute because he’s such an adorable gentleman. And yes, there was some swoony scenes and yes, I’d give those all my stars. *Throws stars at that right now*

There are some great action scenes as well and addicting writing! Armentrout always knows how to sprinkle in the perfect amount of humor. I love how it ended because it’s open for the next book but not the deadly bomb of a cliffhanger. So I’m so very interested to see what happens next!

  1. Love the gargoyle picture!!!! LOVE the Dark Elements Series!!! I hope the Harbinger series ends up being really good. This first book, to me anyway, the first maybe half of the book (or almost anyway) is slow, but the second half is really intense and good!!! Maybe the next book will be more intense all the way through. Just my opinion, someone else may feel differently. But Zayne is sooo HOT in this book, more so than in Dark Elements!!! I think we can all agree there!!!!
