Today I am reviewing The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L Armentrout! As you all know, JLA is one of my favorite authors of all times and I completely consumed this book! I hope you enjoy, you can check out my review for the first book in series, The Darkest Star, here.
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.
How does Jennifer L Armentrout do it? No really how! Every single time I read one of her books, I think this can’t possibly be better than the last, and I am always proven wrong. The blend of action, romance, and humor is so much fun to read. The characters were multifaceted and has so much depth to them will be in friggin hilarious. I loved Evie struggling to live with these two sides of her self, and that her reactions and motivations were relatable. Luc… was Luc and he was freaking amazing.
I love how this book wasn’t a copy of the series before it, but rather introduced new problems with higher stakes. I enjoyed seeing characters from the previous books but loved how the focus was mainly on the new characters and this new story. Such an amazing job thank you, Jennifer L Armentrout.
