ARC Review--Grace and Glory by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Trinity Marrow has lost the battle and her beloved Protector. Even with both demons and Wardens on her side, Trin may not win the war against the Harbinger.

Bringing Lucifer back to the world to fight the Harbinger is probably a really, really bad idea, but they’re out of options—and the world’s ultimate fallen angel is the only being powerful enough to impact the outcome.

As Trin and Zayne form a new and more dangerous bond and Lucifer unleashes Hell on earth, the apocalypse looms and the world teeters on the end of forever. Win or lose, one thing is certain—nothing will ever be the same.

Danger, betrayal, and enticing forbidden love clash in book three of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Harbinger trilogy!




I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

It's always bittersweet when a series comes to an end, make that a Jennifer L. Armentrout series and it's the very definition of bittersweet. Grace and Glory brings a conclusion to The Harbringer trilogy, but whether it will be the end of this world series is a question that only will time will answer to! We all thought The Dark Elements series ended that world, but we found out otherwise here. And this was such an epic adventure, I would not be surprised if a few years later Jennifer returns.

So, we all remember how Rage and Ruin ended, we were raging, we were ruined...really, the title prepared us. Lol. But Trin knows Zayne isn't gone for good. And he is in fact back, but he's different now, he's a Fallen angel and he has no memories of his friends and family, or Trinity. But Trinity is not accepting no with grace and dignity, she will do everything she has to to reach Zayne and bring him back.

But there's still the fact that the end of the world is at stake. Gabriel still plans to destroy all of mankind and bring Hell to Heaven and you know, utter chaos and destruction. Trinity knows she will have to kill Gabriel before it's too late, that or she'll be used to bring about the end of all things. Roth and Layla are working on the new plan, which involves bringing Lucifer to earth and having him kill his brother, Gabriel.

Well, it honestly shouldn't be too much of a spoiler that eventually, the Zayne we all know and love comes back to himself and to Trinity. I mean, it wouldn't be a JLA book without the spine tingling romance we've all come to adore from her! Zayne and Trinity have more than their share of sizzling moments and woohoo boy! It's hard remembering a time that these two struggled to be together on the most intimate level. They've come a long way since that first book and honestly, I am so happy that Zayne has found happiness with Trinity, that she was always meant to be his destiny. To think...if readers didn't vote for Roth...this might have been a very different story indeed!

What was probably the BEST part of this book was when Lucifer was on Earth and enjoying the new technology and everything the 21st century had to offer...including...wait for it...SUPERNATURAL! Yes, Lucifer manages to get hooked to the show Supernatural and becomes obsessed with his own character. Not only in the way he's portrayed but just everything about the show itself. It's absolutely hilarious! I was dying when he was binge watching episode after episode and wondering why that Lucifer chose to do this and not that, rolling over how his brothers were portrayed and giving Trinity the death glare when she spoils a season finale! Lol. Omg, this was just the best thing ever! You don't really have to know the show in order to grasp what's happening, and plus anyone spoiling a season finale for a favorite show is worthy of a death glare!

This book was extremely well paced too. It was broken down into parts too, we have the need to save Zayne, the planning and what not, then the saving of Zayne, and then trying to plan for the endgame, and then you know the actual endgame. The pacing between each part too was so enticing! You were constantly turning the pages, eager to see what would happen next. Jennifer just has that way about her writing style, she knows how to keep a hold of her readers.

Grace and Glory was the ultimate conclusion to The Harbinger series! It was jam packed with action, tension, romance...everything to create a page-turning, spine-tingling read. It was the best kind of series ender, one that leaves readers hopeful for a brighter future for those left standing and gives just the right tease that maybe this isn't the end of this world either. If you have yet to start this incredible angels/demons/apocalyptic showdown of a series, now is the time! There is nothing better than binge reading a series, let alone one by the ultra talented Jennifer L. Armentrout! This series is pure gold!

Overall Rating 5/5 stars
