    One thought on “Shadows”

    1. When she nodded, he bent down, pressing his head against her forehead. “Seriously though, I want this—I want you.” The earlier awkwardness was gone from his voice. He was all intent and purpose now. “More than I’ve ever wanted anything.”This was an uber-sweet and heartbreaking prequel novella about Daemon's brother Dawson, and how his love for Bethany changed everything.I won't say much because this one is short and I'd spoil it for everyone :(How I liked itDawson and Bethany were gr [...]

    2. 3.75 stars I've been doing some catch up on all of my JLA novellas and stories. This is one I've always meant to read but never got around to. Shadows is the prequel novella to Obsidian, in which we get the story of Daemon's twin brother Dawson, and his love Bethany.This was a very sweet and fast read, I love JLA's heroes, mean or nice they are all perfect to me LOL. Glad to get some background on these two characters because in a way it makes you understand more where Daemon is coming from in t [...]

    3. 4.5+ stars! Ok, seriously, this YA series has me HOOKED !!!! Like woah hooked! I feel like I could easily devour ten of these books in a sitting! I’m totally and completely in LOVE!!K, first off, very important but this book should be read AFTER Obsidian. I repeat,READ Obsidian FIRST!!!!! Even though its the prequel, trust me, everything will make a lot more sense if you read it after. You won’t be missing anything, I promise. Just because these events came first, doesn’t mean they should [...]

    4. *Initial thoughts after reading:Oh god, I think I might cry. This was so heartbreaking. But this gave light and more understanding about Daemon's attitude and actions towards Katy in Obsidian. If I could just jumped into the story and help them, I really would. Haha! I have so many theories coming up on my mind now and I'm also so in the mood to re-read Obsidian! *Final Thoughts: (This went more like my review for both Shadows and my second round of Obsidian. Teehee!)This was a wonderful and hea [...]

    5. Actual rating: 3.5 starsUsually I don't like reading novellas. I find that I have a harder time connecting with the characters with such few pages. So I was surprised that by the time I read the last page of Shadows I found myself missing Dawson and Bethany. Perhaps it's because I devoured Shadows right after completing Obsidian. I'm not sure. Or maybe it's because despite Dawson and Bethany's absence thus far in the series, I can still feel that they play a much bigger role than perviously real [...]

    6. *drools at the cover* For the love of all Aliens! I loved this book!!For those of you who know me already know that I'm a HUGE fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout. She is such a brilliant author and I simply can't get enough of her stories.I've been looking forward to Shadows ever since I found out it was coming our way. Not only was I thrilled to see Daemon and Dee again, but I've always been mighty curious about Dawson Black who fell in love with his human girl, Bethany Williams. This is his story. [...]

    7. Oh I am so disappointed by this prequel novella to the Lux series… although I guess I should not be surprised! I was always kinda nervous about reading this and sadly it seems my fears have come to fruition. This story focuses on Dawson and Bethany… who are a cute couple… but they are no match for Daemon and Katy!! Where Damon and Katy are all prickly at the start of their relationship and zinging with chemistry…and with banter to die for….oh the banter…. *sighs*…. Well Dawson and [...]

    8. 3.5 stars I usually don't rate novellas more than 4 stars. And as much as I love the Luxseries, I couldn't connect with the characters in this book. Especially Beth. No one is gonna replaces Daemon and Kat, of course. So it was good to see him again, how he was before. I had this unexpected feeling that I missed them and then I was thinking about rereading Obsidian. Which is something I rarely do. I just wish I have read this book before starting the actual series, but it was nice to remember wh [...]

    9. Kimmy turned on the girl, about to pull a Linda Blair, no doubt.Okay, so forgive me in advance if this review is completely all over the place and disjointedbut that's what Armentrout's writing does to me. She is positively my favorite YA author as of late, and along with adult romance author E.L. James, she is the only one who can elicit such a strong reaction from me when I read her work. I've said it before, and I'll say it againe woman has mad skills. Not to mention the kind of humor I love [...]

    10. 5 Stars! DAWSON.cious!Okay, I get it now, I see what's so appealing about this series and Shadows showed me the way. My hope is that eventually Daemon reveals some of the same personality traits as his brother Dawson, and is just hiding them, because he's protecting his family and can't let down his guard. I read Obsidian first and struggled with Daemon and Katy's relationship, but Dawson and Bethany represent what young love is all about. They made my heart flutter. Fingers crossed that we see [...]

    11. Como precuela está bastante bien. Tiene un buen ritmo, se descubren cosas nuevas y hay algunos giros. Si te gusta la saga no te lo pierdas.

    12. GawdI love this series. I love Dawson and Daemon. I love Jennifer. Need to get my thoughts in orderew to come!OKAY, I think I have had enough time to gather my thoughts so I can write my review for this. It wont be as long as my other reviews because I have so much to say but don't want to "spoil" anything for those that have not gotten to it yet! So here goesSO, yay!!! I was so glad to see Daemon and Dee again! I've especially missed Daemon like SO MUCH!!!!! Ever since I found out there was gon [...]

    13. Let us all just take a minute to thank the author for this lovely, sexy as hell, drool worthy COVERRRR!Ughhh that face, those eyes, the hair no I'm not drooling! I'm losing my mind.I've always had a thing for Daemon, but Dawson is hell of a romantic. "3.5 ALIEN BABY DAWSOLECIOUS STARS"(Dawsolecious= Dawson+Delicious) This was the first book I read in the 3rd POV which makes it a big deal for me. I didnt hate it, but I didnt quite enjoy it. The only thing that made me finish this book was the dia [...]

    14. I finished Shadows last night I just i was not in a an emotional condition to come online and say or write something. In fact i didn’t stop thinking about it not even the next day and the evening too.If you are not familiar with the Obsidian (Lux, #1) the first book in the series since Shadows (Lux, #0.5) is the pre sequel book here is the chance to suck into the world that Jennifer L. Armentrout creates…If you are familiar with the series like me well you know the deal It was fantastic and [...]

    15. (view spoiler)[My heart hurts so freaking bad right now like I seriously want to cry! And it is even worse because I knew the ending was going to break my heart! Gah! (hide spoiler)]5 Stars!*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*This novella is a prequel to Obsidian, the first book in the Lux series. I don't want to give too much away, but this story is basically about forbidden love and the consequences that can occur. It is about a girl named Bethany, who moves to a new town where sh [...]

    16. -3.5-¡Ay lo que me ha gustado Dawson! Es tan cuqui y más bueno que el pan.Si es verdad que no aporta mucho más a la saga, salvo una explicación coherente de por qué Daemon es así en Obsidian. Aun así ha sido fantástico poder ver más de cerca esa relación entre los trillizos Black.

    17. Before Damon met Katy, before they fell in love and before all hell broke loose, there was another epic love story between a Luxen and an Human.This novella is a snippet of Dawson and Beth's love story before they got imprisoned by Daedalus.How they met, how they fell in love, how Beth turned into a hybrid and what really happened that night they got captured.You don't have to read this novella to read the Lux series. It isn't important for the series and everything that we need to know about Da [...]

    18. This is the only book by JLA I don't like. At All. I don't like Bethany, I don't like Dawson and I don't like the plot.Bethany is just not my type of girl - girly, innocent, weak, damsel in distress-y. And honestly, how fucked up do you have to be to be okay with your BF being an alien in less than 5 minutes.Dawson was okay, though not as great as Daemon, until the point he fell in 'love' with Bethany. Even I, a hopeless romantic, would not be so selfish as to betray my family and friends and en [...]

    19. Quick reviewCover: Hotness RatingPG–13 . Thumbs Up4.5Overall: Really Good Read.Characters: Love them.Plot: Totally original.Page Turner: Yes. Series Cont.? Yes. RecommendYes.Book Boyfriend: DAWSON!SUMMARY This is a novella, but it packed a punch. I really loved DAWSON. We got to see more of the other Luxens. I still didn’t feel much for Daemon. (view spoiler)[ I was pissed he was with Ash and it didn’t seem like a hardship for him.(hide spoiler)] I found more questions in this one though.( [...]

    20. BR with Jo and Sammy(This was a re-read for me.)5 Stars!Shadows is a prequel to Obsidian and tells the story of Dawson Black and Bethany Williams. This book also has in it Dawson's siblings, Daemon and Dee (they are triplets) as well as other supporting characters in the story. The story is told from Dawson's and Bethany's POV and occasionally Daemon's POV.Dawson is a Luxen (an alien) and he falls in love with a human. Shadows is a novella about an instant attraction, a love that is frowned upon [...]

    21. I simply couldn't resist reading this. I spent the entire morning NOT working. I'm bad, I know! Butbut's Dawson and Daemond gah! This gives us a background story as to what happened to Dawson and Bethany. We all know that they disappered without a trace prior to Obsidian, so no suprise as to the eventual ending of Shadows. I kind of half dreaded/anticipated reading this just for the very reason. I dreaded knowing Dawson's demise. At the same time, I think it was pretty cool to see what turned Da [...]

    22. Rating: 4 OUT OF THIS WORLD STARSI loved this book so much, like, SO FREAKING MUCH WORDS CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN. Miss J.L. Armentrout (aka the author), made an amazing job writing this precuel to Obsidian. I believe it is really neccesary to read this, like I understand people say you don't have to, that's not crucial, but come on! If you read this awesome short book, you'll totally understand why Deamon hate so much humans, or why he tried so hard to keep Katy away from Dee.“how could he explain [...]

    23. “Finish that sentence and i will stab you in the eye with the spork Bethany's about to pull out of her bag for her apple sauce. And she'd be very upset if i got her spork all messed up. she's rather fond of the thing."A spork,” Dee said, grabbing her bag. “What is a spork?”Bethany’s mouth dropped open. “You’ve never seen one?”“Dee doesn’t get out much,” Dawson replied, grinning.“Shut up.” Dee pulled out the fork and spoon in one and smiled. “I’ve never seen one of t [...]

    24. (OH MY GOD, THE COVERS FOR THIS SERIES SUCK ASS.)Now, back to my reaction to the novella.I postponed reading this for quite a long while, without really knowing why, but hey! Look at me! I read it! And enjoyed it. Very much. Because I kind of love Dawson. And I wanted to see the fun Dawson. And know what the hell happened between these two.I'm too tired to write a review right now.Just read it, if you liked the Lux books.P.S. That ending nearly broke me even though I knew it was going to happen. [...]

    25. Las precuelas siempre me han parecido algo un concepto bastante curioso. Después de todo, ¿hasta qué punto es necesario contar lo que pasó antes de una historia que ya tiene su principio y su final? Confieso que antes de comenzar con la traducción de Shadows se me pasó por la cabeza que igual me resultaba un libro repetitivo e innecesario, pero por suerte no ha sido así.Reseña completa: alaspapel/2015/09/shad

    26. Good prequel to the series, but these two were too cute and adorable. I prefer Kat and Daemon's on and off again banter and wit. It does have more insight to Dawson and Beth's characters which was nice.

    27. "Dear God, she was seconds away from melting into a useless puddle of girlie girl."Oh yeah, I’m right there with that sentiment!This book is a prequel to Obsidian, but in actual fact, should be read AFTER that book, when the world and some of the characters are already established. Chronologically though, the events of this book take place prior to Obsidian and tell the story of Daemon and Dee’s missing-and-presumed-dead brother, Dawson. Holy freaking swoon! I confess here and now to being a [...]

    28. Too. Frickin. Cute.This prequel to the Lux series answered a few questions of mine that cropped up while reading Obsidian, yet also left one big question hanging. I don't buy that anything is final, no matter how much everything would appear as such. The DOD knows too much imo. I'm guessing that I'm not the only one feeling this way.Dawson, the "good" twin to his temperamental other half Daemon (who was the main character in Obsidian) was a pleasant enough character. He was easy enough to like b [...]
