Description

Number one New York Times, USA Today, and internationally best-selling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the world of the Lux with The Burning Shadow, the steamy, shocking second installment of the Origin series that will leave listeners reeling.

When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux - only to discover 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.

The Burning Shadow

Ok wow, so much happens in this book in all the good ways. We really get to the meat of what is going on and how Evie. This whole book was jam-packed with action. I found the darkest star left us with sooooo many unanswered questions and this book gives them all to us but also leaves us wanting MORE.

I loved the romance happening between Luc and Evie you can see genuine affection from both even though Evie questions herself a lot Luc never does it really is a great story.

The narration was PHENOMENAL!

Awesome!

Predictable but still awesome. Jenn does not disappoint with her alien babies. Luc and Evie are great! I love them. But Daemon and Kat are still my favorites. Pretty much my review is just that I need book three NOW!

Another Excellent JLA Book

This is the 2nd book in the Origin Series. as always, Jen tells a story that keeps you guessing, swooning (Luc is amazing) and wondering why the next installment will only be out in a year! Her characters are relatable and lovable and no one writes a better book boyfriend.

5 Stars for The Burning Shadow

5 Stars for The Burning Shadow

My thoughts (spoiler free)

The Burning Shadow is the long awaited second book in the Origin series and I loved it! The story picks up from where The Darkest Star ended and it feels so good to spend time again with these characters. Evie is still struggling with the truth of her identity and her friends are by her side to support her. Luc is still the bad boy alien but fans see more of his sensitive and passionate side. Their romance is slow building, with a mix of tender and steamy moments. Luc’s ranks in my BBF list jumps to the top because of his heart-warming revelations and protectiveness of Evie. JLA amazed me with his voice and often left me weak in the knees. Along with the romance the story has humor and I love the characters banter. It’s clear with this teasing how much love they have for each other and how they have become a family. There is also suspense, action and heart-breaking scenes that kept me glued to the story. The audiobook was 16 hours long and I tried to not rush into listening to this book. I did not want this book to end!

Saskia Maarleveld’s narration for the audiobook was excellent.She brought the characters to life with their unique personalities and emotions. Combined with JLA’s talented writing, the audiobook was entertaining and I highly recommend listening to this version.

I can’t wait for the next book!

Worthy sequel

My heart wants to explode every time I think of Evie and Luc.

I thought this story had the perfect balance of romance and plot. The book picks up right where book 1 ended. People are still terrified of the Lux and hate is spreading the country. There’s a deadly flu like virus going around, one that seems to be originating from the Lux. People are dying and some people are tired of having the Lux around.

I listened to the audio version, and I thought the narrator did an amazing job. It’s the same narrator from book 1, and I think she handles all the characters and emotions really well.

The chemistry between Evie and Luc jumps from the pages. Every time they’re together I get a stupid grin on my face. The banter between the two is hilarious.

I also like that there’s an ensemble of characters. You see a lot of Evie with her girl friends, as well as the alien groups.

Fans of the Lux Series will be ecstatic, as we see a lot of the old characters we know and love.

Thankfully, the cliffhanger wasn’t that bad. I can deal until the next book comes out next year.

Overall, this was a great addition to the ever expanding Lux universe. While not completely original, this was highly entertaining.

Holy alien babies and origins and burning shadows!

That was another unforgettable story in this world that I don’t want to EVER leave. I grew so attached to these characters, experienced so many ups and downs with them that I feel them like they are part of my family now.

I don’t know where to start with all the emotions I experienced with this book. It was intense, it was sweet, it was romantic, it was action-packed, it was funny and also sad at places, it was full of twists and turns and gave me all the feels. And this audio version was simply amazing. Saskia Maarleveld gave so much life to the characters and depth to the story, Loved her performance as Evie.

The first part of the book was a bit uneventful in terms of fights but I loved it nonetheless. I enjoyed the revelations of some long-kept truths and the slow-burning romance that was growing with each page. I fell head over heels in love with Luc’s character. Not that I wasn’t at this point but he completely stole my heart piece by small piece.

Evie was his match made in Origin heaven and his better half. They were so great together and their love grew even stronger than before. I loved these slow, sweet and very romantic moments as much as I loved the crazy action-packed ones.
After one point things started happening one after another and the story swallowed me whole. It was a real page-turner. So intense, wit lots of jaw-dropping scenes and some nail-biting ones. Absolute whirlwind of events, revelations and new developments that left me wanting for more.

I had tears in my eyes every time someone from the Lux gang made an appearance. It was so cool to have a glimpse of their lives 4 years after the craziness that was Opposition. I don't want this story to EVER end and to leave this world and the characters I grew so attached to. Lux was the 1st I read from Jen and it'll always have a sentimental value for me, but this spin-off story is taking it to a whole new level. It’s absolutely amazing and keeps the intrigue going the whole time.

Pure 5 Sterne!

Wow!
Habe gerade das Buch zu Ende gehört und kann jetzt schon nicht erwarten dass der3. Teil erscheint.

Dieses hier ist zwar 'nur ' ein Ableger von der Luxen Serie aber ich habe das Gefühl, dass Armentrout mit jedem Buch besser wird.
Super spannend, tolle Personen und ein sehr guter Schreibstil. Dazu kommt noch eine tolle Vorleserin. Schon hat man 5 Sterne.
