Audiobook Review: Rage and Ruin (Harbinger, #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rage and Ruin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Forbidden alliances, forbidden love.

A half human, half angel and her bonded gargoyle protector must work 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 heroine: Trinity – the daughter of an Archangel, Trinity has finally been called upon by her father to fulfill her life’s purpose. Along with her warden guardian she is searching for something called the Harbinger that has been killing wardens (Gargoyles) and demons alike

The Hero(es): Zayne – he is a warden that looks at things a bit differently than most. He works with demons and doesn’t indiscriminately kill demons like the rest of the wardens. This has alienated him from his clan.

The Story: Trinity and Zayne become much closer after her father appoints Zayne her guardian. They are forbidden to be together now that Zayne is her guardian. It doesn’t dampen the attraction they have felt toward each other.

This storyline has gotten better and better. I am enthralled with this world and can’t wait to hear more. The narration was great again, I like the young woman who is doing the narration and she is Trinity to me, not just someone reading the words. She is good a putting emotion into her voice as well as wit and sarcastic humor.

My favorite person was her ghost friend Peanut again but the rest of the supporting cast is gaining ground as well. I really like Roth, the crown prince of Hell and the two main characters are fascinating and they have all the chemistry you could ask for.

Another great thing is all the pop culture references, like Supernatural, Star Wars, Dr. Who and time they compare themselves to the Avengers.

Roth: “What about you, Zayne? Would you kill baby Harbinger?”
“Yes. I would. Now that we’ve all agreed that we’d kill baby Harbinger, can we get a move on?”
“Sure. I don’t know about you guys, but this sharing and caring moment makes me feel like we’re a real team that can get stuff done. Like the Avengers, but more evil.”
“So, pretty much like Tony Stark?”
“Tony Stark is not evil!”
