Review: The Burning Shadow

Title: The Burning Shadow

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Date of Publication: October 8th, 2019

3E94B2A8-92C8-4965-8DB2-C2A2D3720E0E

Goodreads Summary:

When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux―only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.

Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is―and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.

Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.

And all the while, a new threat looms: reports of a flu-like, fatal virus that the government insists is being spread by Luxen. A horrifying illness that changes whoever it touches, spreading panic across a country already at its breaking point.

My Review:

I’ve loved the Lux series and especially loved the last book, The Darkest Star! My little alien babies are just so fun to read about!

My favorite thing about this book, as with the last one, was Luc! He just lights up every scene that he’s in! I still wish that these books were from his perspective or that it was dual POV, but that’s okay! Oh, and yes, there was some magnificent swoon! And let me not forget Evie because she has some fabulous character growth in this story!

My only complaint was that the book felt too long. I think it could have definitely been scaled back by scrapping some of the scenes with Evie and her friends. Also, it felt a bit too political in some parts—I tend to like to escape stuff like that in books. But besides that, the writing was addicting as always and the descriptions and actions were so awesome! I feel like Armentrout always writes the best action sequences! I need book three!
