    Wonderful As Always!

    4.5☆ The Burning Shadow was a wonderful Jenn book as always. It didn't suck me in quite as much as The Darkest Star, but it was still jam packed with greatness. There was plenty of humor, action, and plot twists. I still love Luc and Evie and am always rooting for them. They're perfect for each other and I love everything about their relationship. A lot of this book is about Evie finding her way and getting answers about her past. It was very interesting learning about her life and how things came to be about. She may not always think she is, but she's a strong, brave girl with a big heart. What I love about Luc is that he is always there for her and tends to know what she needs and how to help her. We get a lot of questions answered and form a few more questions by the end too. I can't wait for more in the next book of the series!

    Holy alien babies and origins and burning shadows!

    Holy alien babies and origins and burning shadows everywhere! 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. 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. The ending was the proverbial cherry on the cake with the super crazy fights and the new revelations but that cliffhanger! Man, how are we going to survive another year for the next one?! My head is all over the place and I want answers for all my questions. I really can’t wait to see what happens next and how this story will progress from here on.

    Do yourself a favor and pick up this series!

    Annnnnnd... Cue book hangover. The Burning Shadow is the second installment in the Origin series, a spinoff from The Lux series. The Burning Shadow picks up immediately after The Darkest Star. When I say immediately, I mean immediately. #grilledcheesegate What makes The Burning Shadow incredible is its action packed plot and the chemistry between the main characters. Whenever Evie and Luc are together, the scene is taken over by their palpable chemistry. Armentrout’s writing shines here because the angst between these two characters is off the charts. While nothing too X-rated happens, it sure does feel like it. Armentrout puts on a master class in these scenes. Budding writers, pay attention! A big theme throughout The Burning Shadow is identity. As with many young adult novels, identify issues/crisis are central to a teenager’s coming of age story. The Burning Shadow kicks this well used theme up a notch as Evie struggles to understand and deal with the information she learned in the previous novel. The Burning Shadow is so quotable. Therefore, I will leave my favourite below. Do yourself a favor and pick up this series! “‘If you ask that, then maybe I wasn’t clear enough last night. There is only you and me. Boyfriend. Girlfriend. Mates. Lovers,’ he said, and muscles low in my stomach curled tight. ‘I don’t care what you call me as long as you call me yours.’”

    Everything I Wanted & So Much More

    This was everything I wanted and SO MUCH more! Jennifer has done it again! Her writing has come such a long way since I read the Lux series. She knows how to write long books and keep me interested the whole way through. Luc is now my favorite of all the book boyfriends I've encountered over the last decade or so! He's sweet and caring with a possessive streak that rears it's ugly head when things become dire. I also love that he's not afraid of a little something called emotions and feelings. I know it sends shudders through almost every book boyfriend I've read about in the past too. Evie has been dealt a really bad hand and it just keeps getting worse as time goes by. Luc is the star that lights her way because without him this would have probably not even started (read the book and this sentence will make sense, I promise!). It's a breath of fresh air when something happens to her and she doesn't keep it a secret from Luc and they work on resolving the problem together with their friends. Their communication skills were fantastic in this book. The author has been very trigger-happy in this series and that scares me a little for future books. People are dying left and right: bad guys, good guys and everyone else in between has been fair game. My only point of criticism is how these books are released. I would rather have the author work on and release one series at a time than have her working to 2+ series and release only one book per year in that series. I truly don't know what to expect from this series in the following books (which will be a total of 5). I'm excited and optimistic that things are just going to keep getting bigger and better where the books are concerned. Though their adventure needs to span a total of 5 books so it'll probably be getting worse for the characters until we get to that last book. The Audio Book: The narration was fantastic! She has a nice range of male and female voices and I didn't get lost in the dialogue because voices sounded the same.
