ARC For Review 

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…

Destiny Is Often Times Unavoidable

How in the world is it possible that this is my first introduction to this amazing world. My goodness I feel as though I have lived under a rock. My bestest book gals told me all about this wonderful world of WArdens and Demons. I cannot believe I’ve missed out. Ever the optimist I can say I have something to do till the next book comes out. Which by the way cannot come soon enough. That is always the hardest thing about an amazing read that’s part of a series. The book hangover is real…Once I finished it I just kept playing the whole thing over and over not wanting to let go of these characters. Alas now I wait…and the long night is upon me with the Harbinger Series.

The Story, Trinity has a big secret no one must know who she is but something is going on. In a world where Wardens hunt and kill demons there is something out there killing both. This is big and it must be stopped. The community where Trinity has grown up is all she knows. She longs for more but that’s not in the cards for her until a visiting group of Wardens seek assistance and reinforcements to stop something from killing both Wardens and Demons. Trinity will come to find out that destiny has come knocking on her door and there isn’t much she can do to stop it. Therefore she will chase it and kick its butt!

The Characters, um Zayne. Zayne, Zayne, and everyone else…lol JK I love Trinity I love that although she is a bad a$$ she is also facing a very real and very scary disease that will one day rob her of sight. She is a wonderful girl that feels quite real, a bit raw, and definitely jumps with her heart first, consequences later. As I mentioned earlier I am not familiar with the Dark Elements Series so this is the first time i’ve been introduced to my newest book bf Zayne. I’m happy to say I hope he and Trinity find a way as it stands the situation looks impossible but I am hoping beyond hope they make it. I enjoyed the other characters but Trinity and Zayne stole the show!

The End, Um what?! Okay that was a great set up! I was surprised but not upset. The twist made sense especially when we find out about the mistake. Seriously I was like what is this mistake foreshadowing that gets hinted at here and there. Once its revealed I was like WELLDUH! Gosh I’m rusty…I’ve been out of the reviewing scene for a few years but I’m back and here to stay. Especially with these beautiful authors that continue to create amazing worlds and characters that stay with you long after the last page has been read. Trinity and Zayne have welcomed me back in the best way and I cannot wait to read more about them.

My Rating
4.5 Im still in awe of this awesome new world and I cannot wait until the next! Unfortunately I must! I definitely recommend this for those that love paranormal and an amazingly, captivating, stay with you, read!

  1. I'm behind the eight ball on these, too, Ria. I read the first one of the older series and loved it, but got distracted. Looks like the spin off is just as good.


We love to hear your thoughts, and appreciate you stopping by :)
