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 enjoyed falling back into the The Dark Elements world with STORM AND FURY.

Trinity was an interesting characters. We get little sneak peaks to show us why she is special, but it's a nice slow reveal to find out what she truly is. I found her to be pretty kick butt. I loved seeing Zayne again and I loved his role in both Trinity's life and the story overall. Layla and Roth are part of the story as well and they all worked really well together considering their past.

The romance: Lot's of ups and downs, but I really like Zaybe and Trinity together. Not a ton happens between the two because of issues, but I can see a really strong relationship in their future.

Armentrout did a great job with the mystery and bad guy reveal. I was NOT expecting the outcome that came to pass. I was shocked, but then again It made total sense.

I really liked meeting Trinity and getting to see Zayne, Layla and Roth again. I will keep my eye out for book two.

I gave it 4/5 stars
