Series Name:
Harbinger, # 3

Review By Veronica

Grace and Glory is a satisfying ending to a thrilling and addictive series.

Favourite Quote:

I’d heard Zayne say his last words. It’s okay. I’d watched him take his last breath. I’d felt that cord that had connected us together as Protector and Trueborn snap inside me.

He’d died.

He was dead.

But he was right there, standing in front of me, and I smelled freshly fallen snow and mint—wintermint. It was stronger than before, as if the summer air was soaked in winter.

Goodreads Synopsis: 

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’ve been really enjoying the Harbinger series. It’s been a fun, wild reading experience, and I am sad to see it end. I do have to say that this book is probably the weakest out of the three books in the series. Not that it isn’t good; I just felt that it fell short in a few areas. Spoiler Alert! If you haven’t read the second book yet, don’t finish reading this review because it has spoilers from the second book in it. Grace and Glory picks up right after the previous book. Zayne was killed by archangel Gabriel, who turns out to be the harbinger, and Trinity is left physically and emotionally broken. The last scene in the second book ended with Zayne appearing before Trinity as an angel. What a cliffhanger!!! I was quite upset that Zayne had died, and I was curious how Jennifer would bring him back in the final book. I will not give too much away regarding Zayne’s return to the human world because I don’t want to spoil the book for you. But I thought Jennifer did a great job at evolving his character, and the way she brought him back was interesting and a great twist to the story. 

Once again, there are two plotlines in this book: you have the relationship between Trinity and Zayne, and then you have this upcoming apocalypse ushered in by Gabriel. Unfortunately, in this book, I didn’t find that the two plotlines weren’t as well balanced as they have been in the previous books. It felt like the main focus was Trinity and Zayne and their relationship, and the other plotline felt a little neglected, which seemed backwards to me. This is the last book in the series, and we have been building up to this final showdown for a while now, and it fell a little flat for me. The last battle scene seemed rushed and anticlimactic. The battle was happening, and then it just sort of ended with little to no warning. I was a bit disappointed. 

I absolutely adored Lucifer! He was such a hoot, and his obsession with the show Supernatural made my day. His character really was one of the big highlights in this book. He is this evil being, but at the same time, there is this comical side to his personality. 

The love story between Trinity and Zayne is a big focus of the book. When these two finally reunited, there were cute and spicy moments between the two. They have a hard time keeping their hands to themselves. This book has some spicy scenes and reads more like a new adult read instead of a YA. But compared to Jennifer’s adult books, the spice is tame. 

Fans of the series will be happy to see that Jennifer opens up the possibility for another spin-off series in the future.
