Half-angel Trinity and her bonded gargoyle protector, Zayne, have been working with demons to stop the apocalypse while avoiding falling in love. The Harbinger is coming…but who or what is it? All of humankind may fall if Trinity and Zayne can’t win the race against time as dark forces gather.
As tensions rise, they must stay close together and patrol the DC streets at night, seeking signs of the Harbinger, an entity that is killing Wardens and demons with no seeming rhyme or reason. Forbidden to be with each other, Zayne and Trinity fight their feelings and turn to unusual sources for help—the demon Roth and his cohorts. But as deaths pile up and they uncover a sinister plot involving the local high school and endangering someone dear to Zayne, Trin realizes she is being led…herded…played for some unknown end. As anger builds and feelings spiral out of control, it becomes clear that rage may be the ruin of them all.
The very first thing I did after finishing reading Rage and Ruin was going on Amazon and see when the third book is coming out (sadly, the date and title are still unknown) because what an ending!!! And what a story!!! It completely captured me for two entire days (plus the day I spent reading the first book) and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Trinity is not a normal eighteen years old girl. She is a Trueborn (half human, half angel). Her father is a powerful angel who rarely makes an appearance in her life. Her best friend betrayed her in the worst possible way. She has strong feelings for her Protector, Zayne, but they can’t be together. And she has to find and stop the Harbinger, the dark and dangerous entity who is killing Wardens and demons around Washington DC.
I really like the character of Trinity. She is badass, funny, strong, and smart. Her witty exchanges with Zayne made me laugh out loud and, in this second novel, she really grows up and develops well.
Rage and Ruin and the first book Storm and Fury are my first novels by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I really like her clear and flawless writing style, the witty and engaging characters, and the fun, gripping, and suspenseful plot, so I am definitely going to read her other novels. If you are looking for magical creatures, fantastic characters, forbidden love, and cruel villains then this is the perfect read for you. If you are looking for mystery, romance, and laughter, then this is the perfect read for you.
Rage and Ruin is out today and I’d like to thank the publisher Inkyard Press and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of the novel.
