Review: Shadows (Lux 0.5)

Release Date: February 21, 2012
Series: Lux 0.5

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.

Can I just say … Bethany +Dawson = Swoon/heartbreak. Really beautiful story, I know when I read Obsidian I had wondered what really happened between Bethany and Dawson I had high hopes that secretly they were still alive somewhere (and I still do!! Come on there could be a twist somewhere! After all no one saw the bodies except the DOD.)

Regardless of my high hopes this book was really good, I enjoyed reading about Dawson and Bethany’s relationship, with them meeting in school and all the trial and tribulations of trying to be together while everyone did not want it to happen. It was also something about having Daemon in there constantly being so against it that made me smile thinking about where he was today (with Kat or at least in denial).

No one wanted them to be together, there was trouble brewing and everyone could see it but them. They were blinded by love, after all there was still an Arum running around on the loose and Bethany was lit up like a Christmas tree. Daemon constantly warned Dawson that it was dangerous even saying that one day he will get her killed.

Once the book started getting completely exciting with all the action sequences and I was so into it, it ended abruptly. I was disappointed; again no bodies were viewed by anyone other than the DOD (please bring them back Jennifer, please! he he). I am still left wondering exactly what happened. I need more information, maybe a little from the Arum side of things. I don’t know I just need more.

With that said I’m off to read Onyx!

I really want to read this novella soon. Obsidian was a great read, so I really want to see the story behind the aliens' anxiety of having a human discover their secret.

Dawson and Bethany sound like as good of a couple as Daemon and Katy. I cannot wait to see where Jennifer L. Armentrout will go with the Lux series.
