Mini Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Shadows (Lux, #0.5)Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Steph's Rating: 4 stars Overall Rating: 4 stars

 Goodreads Synopsis:
     The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.
     Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.
     Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.
    Captivated. Lured. Loved.
     Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.


Steph's Review:
Hmmm. I think the only reason this novella didn't get 5 stars is because I read it after Obsidian and Onyx (Its okay, you may berate me I know its a crime).

well lets do a checklist:
Good Plot: check
Good narrator: check
Romance?: check
Original?: check

So Why? I just don't think Dawson was as hot as Daemon!!! LOL. You may kill me over that reason, but seriously I have a thing for that jerk sexy hot alien Daemon that I don't think I will ever get over.

JLA is really good at writing novellas I think. Usually when I read a novella I look so forward to it and then I'm just so disappointed afterwards because it was just a bunch of fluff to earn cash off of
JLA is not that way. Her novellas have lots of sufficient plot and can help you understand her series better!

Shadows follows the story of Dawson, Daemon and Dee's triplet, meeting and falling in love with Beth. It follows through all the way to his demise with the DOD. Dawson is a lot sweeter than Daemon, and yeah I can see why girls would like him...:) but I go for my bad boys ;)
Beth was pretty cool too, but I don't exactly understand why she was just so special to Dawson. She was pretty average to me, but she was nice and funny I guess. I really feel bad for her towards the end because she really didn't deserve what she had to go through (and continues to go through).

This is a full, complete part of the Lux series, and not just some novella you can just throw out the window like you can with other series's. Read it, Love it, and gush lux about it!

  1. I totally agree with you. I am a Daemon girl too. I love Dawson and my only real complaint about him is that he's not Daemon. I loved seeing Daemon through Dawson's eyes as well as seeing how he interacted with people prior to his brother's disappearance. I really loved the novella and I can't wait for Origin!!!
