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.

REVIEW:
I think Jennifer L. Armentrout is becoming one of my favorite authors.

I read Obsidian, Shadows and then Onyx.

I don’t do reviews on extra reading material like this but oh my gosh…i had to for this series! Shadows was pretty good! It was in third point of view (of course, I would have rather first point of view) but it still held my interest til’ the end; so I’m not complainin’.

Theme:
Love, Sacrifice

Plot:
When Bethany and Dawson eyes meet, its love at first sight. Dawson’s brother and their friends disapprove but Dawson doesn’t care what other people think. He is going to do whatever he wants to do.

When Dawson and Bethany begin to date, Dawson has to keep a secret from her; a secret than can change her life and everyone around him if she finds out.

But Dawson can’t help but risk his secret for Bethany. He can’t deny the connection they have and he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

Characters:
Dawson→ Dawson was so outgoing! I loved the relationship he had with Daemon and Dee. I could tell they loved one another even when they annoyed each other.

Bethany→ Bethany loves painting. She seems so sweet, nice, smart, and free. Her and Dawson really do make a cute couple. They compliment one another.

Daemon→ Daemon was so different before he met Katy! You can tell a difference between the Daemon before Dawson disappeared and after. Like oh my gosh..he was so freaking mean…as mean as Andrew and Ash! Like wow.

Style/Setting:
In third point of view in the eyes of Bethany, Dawson, and Daemon. Set in West Virigina.

I don’t like how the concept was similar to Obsidian and Onyx. The characters having the same taste in movies and etc. I don’t know…it just threw me for a loop. Some people don’t often find someone with the exact same interest as them…u know? And here are two couples (Dawson and Bethany; Daemon and Katy) who have found someone with the same interest as the other….I didn’t like that. I like when characters can have very little in common and still love one another.

Lesson Learned? Love has no boundaries.

**Recommend reading this BEFORE Obsidian, book one.
