Synopsis:
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.


“Trin, nothing about you will ever be a burden. Everything about you is a goddamn privilege.”

It’s hard to believe that I never intended to start this series and now I adore Zayne and Trin. Thank God Armentrout decided to add Roth in the story or I never would have given it a chance. We didn’t get much of him in this one but I adored having even a tiny bit of him, like who wouldn’t?

I wasn’t big fan of what happened with Zayne’s character in the beginning of the book. The ending in Rage and Ruin killed me and I couldn’t wait to get this one but I just was kind of sick of it? Maybe it reminded me too much of my least favorite Cassandra Clare series but I was so glad when Trin finally got real Zayne back. The “big reveal” about how Zayne became what he became was kind of disappointing since I already knew about where gargoyles came from since I’ve read The Dark Elements.

“I think ‘if you love someone, set them free’ is one of the stupidest saying out there. ”

I love Zayne and Trin more and more every book but I don’t know how I feel about her feeling completely lost without him. Shipper inside of me was totally swooned but I don’t like to think that she would’ve just given up without him. I’m glad they didn’t just get to have their moments in this book but they also communicated a lot, like what if she became blind and stuff like that.

I love Supernatural but I didn’t really love how much it was mentioned in Grace and Glory. I wish we had seen more badass side of Lucifer than just him being obsessed with a TV show. There’s so many other characters who could’ve been fanboy or fangirl.

I’m glad we finally learned the truth about Peanut. I didn’t see that coming!

All in all great last book for the series and love how it was left open for a possible spin off in the future. I wasn’t happy with the whole Zayne thing in the beginning of the book but thankfully there was a reason for it. I seriously recommend this series if you love The Dark Elements even if you didn’t like Zayne. It doesn’t only have Roth, Layla and Cayman but you could learn to like Zayne, like I did. It could just take few books to get there.
