Shadows - Jennifer L.Armentrout

Title : Shadows ( LUX #0.5)
Author : Jennifer.L.Armentrout
Publisher : Entangled Publishing
Language : English
Synopsis : Obsidian
Review :

Last time I read and made a review about Obsidian that was telling about Daemon, and Shadows is part of it. It is the story of the lost-or-maybe-dead brother, Dawson. Living in a human form makes Dawson, Daemon and Dee and the other aliens can easily blend with humankind. The aliens called themselves as The Luxen, it means 'light' because everytime they overused their powers, their bodies will be bright and shine like a light or worse, sun.

Most of the Luxen are twins or triplets. Nobody notices them as aliens, if one does, DOD (The Department of Defense) will take care of it. You need to read it by yourself to know why DOD protects them. But it doesn't make them to live in peace because Arums are looking for them to kill and absord their powers. So, the point is Arums are bad news for the Luxen and they are more powerful at night.

Dawson never fall in love with a human, make out  is one thing, but having a relationship with a human is a big no for Luxen. It's way too risky. But when he met Bethany Williams for the first time, he couldn't stop thinking about her. And she also felt the same thing.

"Talk to you tonight?" 
"Of course."
"You're calling me."
"Yeah, that's right."
"Good, because I really don't think I can go to sleep without hearing your voice now."
Isn't it just sweet? I'm sensing a new-born couple here. Maybe it sounds a bit lame or whatever but love is just like that right? When you love someone, you don't even notice that you want to change your life for him/her.

How are they going to maintain their relationship while everyone seemed to disapprove with their relationship?

"I love you, Dawson. I love who you are, what you are. And I don't think love recognizes differences. It just is. And we really aren't that different."

I've read Obsidian and I know how Dawson's brother, Daemon really hates humans. And he has a good reason of why he doesn't want to get involved with any human. But still, love can change everyone and everything. 

"This is going to blow up in your face - in all of our faces. There's a reason why humans don't know about us. They are fickle and insane!" 
Then Ash twisted toward Daemon, her cheeks flushed. "I can't believe you;re allowing him to do this. Next thing we know, you'll be dating a human." "
Yeah, not going to happen."

How funny it is when I read what Daemon said about his brother being crazy about love with a human. Coz' later Daemon will fall in love with a human as well, though he's kinda not admit it :D

Read my review of Obsidian (Lux #1) here : Obsidian.


  1. Wah, ini lanjutannya obisidian!!
    Unnie suka yg mana? Buku ini apa obsidian?

  2. Sbenarnya duluan ini baru Obsidian,ky. Tapi Obsidian duluan terbit, yg Shadows ini baru2 terbit aja :p

    Klo unnie si Daemon forever ^___^

    soalnya karakternya lbh kuat n keras kepala XD

  3. Dawson on the other hand, was a sweetheart and did what he liked. His romance with Beth was very different from that of Daemon and Katy. Dawson was the all-smiling-and-grinning guy. He was very lovable and sweet. He did not regret loving Beth but the only thing he regretted was that he wasn't as strong as his brother.
    The ending was really a heartbreak but I have a really really strong feeling that Dawson and Beth may not be dead after all as Daemon and Dee never got to see their bodies.

  4. Yes, I agreed with you. Dawson was so lovable and I can't help but love him. Yet, Daemon has attracted me with his quirky smile and his cold-hearted personality. XD
    I do believe that somehow Dawon and Beth are not dead and they will show up one day. let's all pray together for both of them :D
