"Jennifer L. Armentrout is a master of weaving rich contemporary realism with magic and mayhem. Her characters will grab hold of your heart and refuse to let go. Every page left me wanting more."—New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer


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 sinister 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. But as deaths pile up and they uncover a plot 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.

  • Just finished the series

    By CaitCat16
    Just finished reading the entire series, and while all three books were so good, this book was hands down the best. I was so drawn in by the intrapersonal relationships and dynamics following the characters. It was so engaging I could barely put it down.
  • Really love this series and Jennifer’s writing!

    By Kae_Kepp
    While this wasn’t my favorite book in this series, I still completely enjoyed it. And when I say it wasn’t my favorite of this series, I only mean that because Trinity was in her most vulnerable place in this book, which caused her to make so many decisions that just made me want to shake her and tell her to snap out of it. But alas, all main characters need to learn from the harsh moments of their life, and Trinity is definitely dealing with a lot in this book. My frustration with her is not a gripe on Jennifer’s writing. If anything it’s a praise to her writing, as I was pulled in and emotionally invested in a way that made me want to step right in and tell this main character a thing or two about her attitude at times. Just like I would want to do with a close friend. I have come to thoroughly enjoy Jennifer Armentrout’s writing and story telling. I first read her From Blood and Ash series (so desperately waiting for War of Two Queens) and I was hooked from the beginning. But this series felt so much like a big, warm nostalgic blanket to me personally. Her writing and the personality of these characters reminds me of all the amazing and hilarious attributes that I loved about the Buffy the Vampire Slayer characters. As that is my ultimate favorite childhood TV show, this book reminded me in so many ways of it. This book is full of amazing humor, so many fun pop culture references, and above all, a sincerely beautiful story that is so full of hope amidst the darkest moments. And maybe some people think that’s cliché, but I think it’s a necessary reminder for so many of us. I didn’t think I would enjoy this series because I am very much not a fan of anything along Biblical lines, but Jennifer’s writing genuinely looped me in and I loved everything about it. I also want to say in this review that I will read everything Jennifer publishes. Her writing feels real, vulnerable, and powerful all throughout her books. I’m very grateful for her gift of story telling.

  • Beyond in love

    By kat_0530
    I love this whole series. The author did a wonderful job. I read both of these books in less than a day I was so invested. I hope there’s more to this series. I love how it’s not your typical romance either. I couldn’t predict what was happening. I would suggest this to anyone who asked for a good book. I will be buying the hard copies soon. They deserve a spot on my bookshelf.
  • Good read, but a little too long

    By C.R.Hope
    Good story. A little long. I kept putting the it down and starting again. JA knows how to make you invest in her characters and want to know what happens to them. This story takes you around the world and back and leaves several open ended story lines. Keep tissues handy for the last part of the book. I bawled my eyes out. (That’s how you know JA has great character development!!!) Looking forward to the next book and finding out some answers. (there has to be another book! It can’t end like this.)
