    Love this author and this book

    My Summary:

    Dawson is a triplet. His older (by minutes) bother, Daemon, looks identical to him. Daemon is overprotective and a little antisocial at times - at least with the humans. His sister, Dee, is hyper and very social with anyone - human or luxon. Oh and all three of them are aliens. They're supposed to stay low key, living with the human but not being discovered. The DOD looks poorly on too much ...um involvement with humans. Still they go to school and talk to the humans but that's it. Until Bethany moves to town and Dawson can't seem to leave her alone. If the luxon's don't do him in for it the DOD's gonna find out. What future is there for a human and a luxon anyway? None at all.

    My Thoughts:

    5 stars - READ IT NOW if not sooner

    Yes I love Jennifer's writing, her characters and her storyline. I have yet to read anything from her that I didn't love but WOW I loved this book.

    Dawson is this strong, fierce, determine guy that reminds me so much of Daemon without the sucky attitude. I fell fast and hard. He's attracted to Bethany from the start but it takes time for them to fall hard, which I appreciated. What I really, really enjoyed was how Dawson was bold and confident with their relationship. I loved how they spend time together. I LOVED their first kiss, which.... oh just read it. The point is we didn't spend 95% of the book waiting for them to figure out that they liked each other and then 2 pages of a great relationship followed by something breaking them up only to have it fixed at the last second. NO, we enjoyed a fabulous building of a strong happy relationship. (Lots and lots of sighing, fanning and awing happening here). Of course, if you've read Obsidian, you know the ending is sad but what a ride until then.

    It was so fabulous getting to know Daemon better. It opens up a whole new understanding of why he has such sucky social skills with the humans anyway. I think I understand Dee better too. Seeing the three together made it clear what their relationship is really like. Bethany got to see that too. We saw them through her eyes. So fun.

    Speaking of seeing through different eyes, this novella was from three points of view (POV). Dawson, Bethany and Daemon. I have really taken to reading from the male POV lately. Love knowing what's going on inside their heads and Jennifer does a great job with that.

    If you read Obsidian, then this is one you're gonna want to read ASAP. If you haven't read Obsidian, then start with this one. It's fabulous.

    OHMYGOODNESS!AMAZING!READ IT!

    Omygoshh look at the cover *drools* Shadows was so fantastic! This was soooo awesomesauce!! Dawson and Bethany are the sweetest! You couldn't help not loving them. If fans of this series read Obsidian first, as I did, you will know what happens to our sweet couple.
    Dawson was the complete opposite of Daemon. Dawson was like sunshine, unicorns and rainbows while Daemon was all thunder and lightning. Shadows gave an insight of why Daemon was the way he is in Obsidian. Even in Shadows, Daemon kept people at arms' length and was the parent figure in the family as he was the oldest - by a few minutes. I understood Daemon better and his behavior in Obsidian was justifiable as it was like history repeating itself all over again.
    Dawson on the other hand, was a sweetheart and did what he liked. His romance with Beth was very different from that of Daemon and Katy. Dawson was the all-smiling-and-grinning guy. He was very lovable and sweet. He did not regret loving Beth but the only thing he regretted was that he wasn't as strong as his brother.
    The ending was really a heartbreak but I have a really really strong feeling that Dawson and Beth may not be dead after all as Daemon and Dee never got to see their bodies.
    Shadows is a wonderful read and I recommend reading it after Obsidian.
    Now I am just dying for ONYX! It can't come soon enough!

    Good but no where near as GREAT as Daemon and Katy in Obsidian-

    Good but no where near as GREAT as Daemon and Katy in Obsidian- Sort of hoping Dawson stays dead in the next one but I have a feeling he's coming back. I think his death makes Daemon more interesting and contributes to his attitude, which I loved. Still, on the whole, if I had read this one first I might have given it 5 stars. In a wierd way, Jennifer ruined Dawson for me by making me love Daemon first. Keep them coming, Jennifer!

    Shadows in a short novella which fills in some blank spots about

    Shadows in a short novella which fills in some blank spots about Daemons brother Dawson Black.

    Since I’ve read Obsidian (Lux #1) first this story gave me some of the unanswered questions I had about the missing brother and what may have happened to them.

    Even though this is a short story it is a great read, Dawson and Bethany are a great couple and I loved their story.

    If you’re a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout writing this is a must read.
    Shadows is about Dawson and Bethany how they met, the feelings, the romance, the acceptance of each other and oh did I mention hot boy.

    This short novel fills in some blank areas and you get to see how Dawson and Daemon are very different from each other but yet both swoon worthy. Best part is you get to read what happened to Dawson and Bethany and understand why they are not in Obsidian, the only question left is have they been taken by the DOD, are they dead? One can only hope they appear safe and sound…. This again is another must read!

    Jennifer has out done herself with this short novel and I have rated it another 5 star rating as I absolutely love her writing and the Lux Series. I recommend it to all my friends and followers.

    I really loved this book but I'm glad I read Obsidian first. It would have ruined Daemon’s attitude problem and I love that about him. Though I’m confused why this is called a prequel it came out before the first one did and I don’t get why that bothers me so bad. It was a quick fun read and if you are in the mood to laugh it’s a must. I highly recommend!

    Shadows is the novella that tells the story of Dawson, Daemon an

    Shadows is the novella that tells the story of Dawson, Daemon and Dee's brother, and Bethany, a human girl. It takes place before Obsidian, but was released after Obsidian (Confusing, I know, haha). This story is good, and I liked Dawson and Bethany just fine. However, I could not keep myself from comparing them to Daemon and Kat, and in my opinion, they just couldn't compete. Daemon and Kat seem like the real deal to me, and Dawson and Bethany had a bit of insta-love going on. They were all syrupy sweet while Daemon and Kat are sarcastic. Because of that, I wasn't into Shadows as much as I was into Obsidian. However, I did enjoy learning about Dawson and Bethany, and this story helped clear up why Daemon is the way he is.

    Dawson is a bit more laid back than Daemon, and because of that, I can see how people would like him better. He's more social, and he seems to like people more. He's also not afraid to follow his heart, consequences be damned. However, he is flawed. He's extremely selfish, and I feel that he could have been a bit less bratty when pleading his case about Bethany. I believed they should be together if they wanted to be, but I didn't think that he needed to get all pissy about it constantly. Because of his flaws, he came across as very real and easy to relate to. I felt for Dawson, but for the life of me, I couldn't understand his obsession with Bethany. I mean I get being attracted to someone and wanting to get to know them, but he was a bit obsessive about her. Not stalker-type obsessive, but internally obsessive... I hope that makes sense.

    Don't worry, though. Bethany, too, was obsessed with Dawson. She started painting him and daydreaming about him constantly after she spoke to him once. I expect that behavior more from a female, but I still don't understand it. Bethany is a lot weaker than Kat, and because of that, I didn't like her as much. She's more of a pushover when it comes to letting people walk all over her. She is a nice girl, though, and I did like her... just not as much as Katy (see what I mean with the comparing?). Her personality went well with Dawson's, though, and they seemed to compliment each other nicely.

    This story read more like a romance than Obsidian. Basically, the plot revolves around the trials and tribulations of Dawson and Bethany's relationship. How they have to overcome obstacles, such as being different species, and how they have to go against mean girls and angry aliens in order to be together. The threat of the DOD and Arum gave the story an underlying sense of danger. There was not a lot of action until the very end. The story, of course, ends abruptly since it's only leading up to Obsidian, so if you haven't read Obsidian yet, the cliffhanger may annoy you. Since I read Obsidian first, it wasn't annoying to me. Basically, you should buy Obsidian when you buy Shadows, then you won't have the cliffhanger problem! :D

    Overall, I recommend this novella to anyone who is a fan of the Lux series. Also, Shadows fills in a lot of the gaps that were present in Obsidian. I know a lot more about Dawson and Bethany's story now, and I also know a lot more about the reasons for Daemon's jerkiness. Furthermore, I feel that Dawson and Bethany paved the way for other aliens to intermingle with humans more if they so desired. In the end, I admire Dawson and Bethany for standing up for their love and what they believe in. I just wish they hadn't been so sappy about it.

    A Must Read

    This book and all that is associated with it is breath taking. I honestly couldn't get enough of the characters. It is very original. In all honesty I didn't care for it too much to be in 3rd person because I prefer 1st person, but if anyone has ever read the series that goes with this book then it is more understandable as to why it is in 3rd person. All in all it was a great insight to the series.

    The instant heat made it even better!

    Dawson and Bethany’s story. A beautiful full-length novel detailing the account of Dawson and Bethany’s meeting, whirlwind romance, and lastly, what really happened before they’re disappearance.

    I missed Daemon and Katy reading this. I really did. However, Dawson and Bethany’s such intense, immediate chemistry turned me into a squealing teenage girl. I was so thrilled at the romance between the two. It was a beautiful love story with some of the best chemistry I have ever read in any novel. And that’s saying something. I’m trying not to give away any spoilers, but let’s just say, Dawson got planted on his ass the moment he laid eyes on her and nothing – and I mean nothing – would keep him from her. It was beautiful. I cried at the end of this story and I’m not ashamed to admit it! I am not much of a crier, but if you don’t need tissues by the end (especially if you are reading this after starting the main Lux series), then you are a tougher woman than I. I’d have to say – despite the lack of my main character couple – this is a definite 5 stars!

    Shadows is the .5 book in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentro

    Shadows is the .5 book in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, but I would suggest you read it after book one. It’s fine if you read this book first in the series, but I think it’s more fun to meet Daemon and wonder why he’s such a jerk.

    Shadows is about Daemon’s brother, Dawson and his girlfriend Beth. Beth goes through something very similar to Katy. I loved getting another peak at Daemon before everything happened, but again I think it’s more fun to read book one without the knowledge of what is going on. It gives more suspense to the story.

    I’ve always liked Dawson and I liked him in his own book, but let’s be honest he’s no Daemon. Dawson is pretty much the cuddly twin which just takes some of the fun out of falling in love with a jerk.

    Shadows isn’t required reading for the series or the story, but it was fun to see how the other alien/hybrid pair meet up. It allowed us to see how their characters were before they went through so much.

    While not required I did enjoy Shadows, there was even one point where I almost cried. And I loved reading the explanation of why Daemon acts the way he does in book one. It sheds so much light on to his character. But again, I didn’t and I would suggest you NOT read this one first. Start with Obsidian when you start the Lux series. Which you should start right now. :)

    I picked up this novella after reading Obsidian, because Shadows

    I picked up this novella after reading Obsidian, because Shadows is the prequel and I was curious to know more about Dawson and Bethany's ill-fated relationship. I have to say, had I known there was a prequel available before reading Obsidian, I would have read it first, but as things turned out, I ended up reading the first full novel prior to reading this prequel. That being said, I already knew the outcome going in, and yet, I almost feel like reading these stories backwards made me care even more about the characters than had I read them in the correct order. Would I recommend reading Shadows after Obsidian? Well, yes, I think I would, because even though I knew the ending going in, I had a healthy respect for all the characters and knew so much about them that I already loved the story before I even started reading.

    And just like Obsidian, Shadows is an extremely well written novella. Armentrout ties the novella and novel together seamlessly, giving the characters I loved, like Daemon and Dee face time, even though this isn’t their novella. She also gives readers more background information about the Thompson triplets, characters readers tentatively meet in Obsidian, but don’t obtain much information about them as they’re extremely minute.

    I will say that knowing the ending of Shadows was hard, especially as I’d gone and fell in love with the characters right away. It killed me to know bad things were going to happen to them, and yet, I also feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel here. Based on the wording that Armentrout uses at the very end of this novella, I’m not 100% sold on the idea that what the DOD said happened really happened, so I do have hope as I go into Onyx, book two in the series. Likewise, I’m very curious about this bond that seems to keep happening between the aliens and their human lovers… having seen what happens to Dawson and Bethany, I am worried for our characters Daemon and Katy as they seem to be in a similar situation at the end of Obsidian. Which is another reason I’m not 100% sold on the end of Dawson and Bethany…

    To be quite honest, it doesn’t really matter what order your read these two books in—Obsidian before Shadows, or Shadows before Obsidian… they’re both beautifully written and captivating, and you should read them both.

    I absolutely adored this Lux novella by Jennifer Armentrout! I

    I absolutely adored this Lux novella by Jennifer Armentrout! I have always wondered about Dawson and Beth so I really enjoyed getting to see how they met and how their relationship came about. For those of you who have read the Lux series, we all know how this novella would end. And it still freaking hurt.

    I liked getting to see this Dawson. When Bethany first walks into his class, it's over for him. He is immediately drawn to her and he believes her to be the most beautiful girl he's ever laid eyes on. Being a Luxen (an alien!), there are certain rules he and his siblings, as well as their close friends the Thompsons must follow. Getting involved with a human is a big no-no, as they are required to report that type of thing to the DOD (Department of Defense). There are so many things that could go wrong with a human- they risk exposure to not only their kind, but to the human as well. There are more Luxen males than females, so it's natural for Luxen not living exclusively in the Luxen community to fool around with human girls. However, it's never meant to be anything serious. However, the more Dawson spends time with Beth, he really finds himself falling for her.

    He won't let his siblings or friends interfere in that and we really see Dawson take a stand against the people closest to him. He knows the risks and consequences and he knows he should stay away from her, but he doesn't want to. Dawson cares about his brother and sister more than anything, but he won't let them dictate his life either. It's a gutsy move on his part, but I admired him for going after what he wanted.

    I liked Beth too. She is sweet and kind and she doesn't back down even when Ash and Andrew (part of the Thompson family) threaten her. She doesn't cave to Daemon either and for those of us who have read the other books in the series know- that's a pretty big deal. Daemon can be a prickly SOB, but at least we now can understand why he acts the way he does in Obsidian. That still doesn't excuse his behavior, but I can't imagine his feelings at the end of this novella.

    Beth and Dawson's chemistry is really great. I loved the build up between these two and when it comes down to it, they make a great couple. The odds are stacked against them, but they manage to make it work. Beth is an extremely loyal person and we really get to see that here- her loyalty to Dawson and by extension his family was really great to see.

    I'm glad JLA decided to write this novella and I'm glad I finally decided to pick it up and read it! It's a great introduction to the Lux series, however readers may want to read this one after Obsidian or even Onyx to have a greater understanding of what happened.

    In ¿Obsidian¿, the first book in the Lux series, reference is of

    In “Obsidian”, the first book in the Lux series, reference is often made to Dawson - Daemon and Dee’s brother. Having finished “Shadows”, I now understand why Daemon is so anti-human in “Obsidian”. Although “Shadows” is supposed to be a novella, it felt as though I was reading a full-length novel. The reader is given the complete story – with every emotion and every single kiss – on how Dawson and Bethany fell in love and how they came to their demise. A little too koochy-koochy for me, but now at least I have the backstory on Dawson.

    Loved seeing how the characters were before the events of Obsidian

    Prequel to Obsidian. This is the story of what happens to Dawson and Bethany, who're mentioned in Obsidian.

    It was interesting and I really liked Dawson. It killed me as I was reading it because I know from reading Obsidian what happened to them. I also really liked the different povs as this has POVs from Dawson, Daemon, and Bethany.

    After reading this, I understand EVEN BETTER the whole attitude Daemon's got goin' on! This was a really good book, of course, and I will probably read it again.

    If you haven't read the Lux series - do yourself a favor. Go read them!

    I don't know about everyone else, but I actually read this book

    I don't know about everyone else, but I actually read this book after finishing Onyx. When I was reading Obsidian and Onyx, there was always mentioning of Dawson and Bethany and I really wanted to know more about them. Dawson's disappearance was the reason why Daemon was so against the idea of Katy and Dee being friends, and if you are like me, and haven't read Shadows, then his reaction is a bit extreme. So it's really nice that I get to read a novella dedicated to Dawson and Bethany, and see where their relationship began and how it progressed.




    Dawson and Daemon are quite different, despite the fact that they are twins. Dawson is really sweet, funny, and laid back while Daemon is more strict, serious, and ill tempered. But they are both super charming, and Dawson is just as irresistible as Daemon! I thought that because he was the nicer one, that he would be boring and lack that flare in Daemon that we all love but I was wrong. Every moment that Dawson and Bethany were together made me really happy!! They were just so darn cute! And the relationship that they shared, how much they loved one another, is enough to leave anyone envious. The love between Bethany and Dawson is beautiful, and very heart warming.




    I also really like Bethany's point of view as well. She is different from Katy, yet at the same time they are both really strong girls. Bethany is really sweet, and I like how she handles herself around Dawson and the other Luxens. Obsidian and Onyx are written in a first person point of view- Katy's only, so we only get to see what she is thinking. I like that Shadows is written in third person omniscient, so there is a wider scope being covered which was brilliant. Since this is a novella, the author has to give out a lot of information but has limited page space, so I thought it was a clever idea to take us into the mindsets of many characters.




    I really enjoyed this novella, it was charming, sweet, funny, and at the same time creepy and dangerous. It's like we are given this amazing love story, side by side with this ticking time bomb...knowing that something bad is just waiting to happen. It's really nerve wrecking! Especially if you are like me and you know how things are going to end, but you still hope that the turn of events won't go down that road.
