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

✨ I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ✨
Starting this book felt a bittersweet as it’s the last book in the Trilogy. The Story picks right up from where Rage and Ruin finished, so you don’t have to wait long to find out what’s going on with Zayne. I did find the first few chapters incredibly slow going, and it took me ages to fully connect with story.
Usually I love literally anything JLA writes but something about this one just felt a bit off. I feel like the beginning of the story when on too long and the end to short – everything was resolved really quickly – I feel like there should have been more of struggle.
I had love/hate thing going on with Lucifer but I think that’s mainly because the only Lucifer that I can imagine is Tom Ellis so yeah. I would have loved more Roth and Layla. The thing that blew my mind most was the Peanut revelation!! 🤯
In a nutshell…
A satisfactory end to the trilogy, but I feel it could have been better, hence the 4 stars.
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Great review! I also feel like everything was resolved quickly. You’re right about the beginning taking forever, but it was my favourite part of the novel because Armentrout took her time.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I do think it was great that she took her time to fully explain that beginning part of the story, it just made the quickness of the ending feel off.
