Audiobook Review: Shadows (Lux #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Prequel novella to the bestselling Lux series


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.

The heroine: Bethany – Moved to West Virginia with her family to help out her uncle who is ill. Bethany has an overprotective mother and a half brother who is just a toddler.

The Hero(es): Dawson – an alien from the planet Lux. Each birth from their kind is triplets, with two identical boys and a fraternal girl. Dawson is identical to his brother Daemon and has a sister Dee.

The story: Dawson and Bethany are attracted to each other at first sight. There is no law against a Luxen being intimate with a human but it is definitely not something that should be done. If the Department of Defense thinks that a human is aware of the Luxen on earth, they will make that human disappear. They don’t want humans to find out about aliens on earth because they know there will be rioting and death if it comes out to the general public.

So when Dawson starts spending time with Bethany and even going so far to stand up for her against one of his own people, the Luxen community is completely against any sort of relationship between Dawson and Bethany. And when something happens and Bethany has to be told the truth about Dawson, the Luxen are even more against them.

With the community against Dawson and Bethany, the DOD checking up on them, the Arum (another alien species who are the enemies of the Luxen) out to get them, they are in big trouble.
