Dangerous secrets and forbidden desires lead to shocking consequences… Don’t miss book two of the fantastical Harbinger trilogy from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout.
“Jennifer L. Armentrout’s intoxicating new fantasy is her best yet!” —New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter on Storm and Fury
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.
So, let me start by saying that I was never a huge fan of Zayne. In fact, I could have done with out him getting his HEA, Harsh I know but I was neither for him nor against him. When Storm and Fury came out I fell in love with Trinity and Zayne was just there, again neither for nor against. Well all that changed with Rage and Ruin.
This picks up exactly where it left off from S&F with Trinity still reeling from the betrayal, hurt and change she has had to go through. Now Zayne and Trinity have to navigate this new life together, finding the Harbinger, stop whoever is killing all the wardens with help from some familiar faces, and stopping the ever growing attraction they have toward each other.
This book, for me brought back the old Zayne who I had started to love in the original stories(See White hot Kiss) he was in but quickly fell out of that because of other things. NOW, I am firmly in the Team Zayne camp.
In this exciting continuation of the Harbinger series this book is filled with action, angst and sometimes heartbreaking goodness. I always feel that if you read an Armentrout male that you didn’t really care for, through her vivid way she writes, she always bring you back around to loving, if not LOVING him.
The ending of this book is explosive and (insert heartbreaking part) but it def leaves you wanting more, as always with Jen’s books.
