The Darkest Star & The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis: #1 New York TimesUSA Today, and internationally bestselling 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 readers reeling.

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.

Thank you so much to at Tor Teen for including me in the #EmbraceYourFate influencer team for the release of The Burning Shadow (October 8, 2019) out now! I’m a huge fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing style and I’m so glad to share to you guys these two books! Thank you for the free book in exchange for an influencer post.

This series is a sci-fi fantasy book because it has the concept of aliens and a certain good-looking male one. Armentrout is a magician when it comes to romance because the tropes and the couples in her books just hook me. I love reading a good romantic book and she makes amazing books filled with both action and romance.

This is a spin-off to the original Lux series and maybe its slightly lesser compared to how amazing the Lux series was.

I would still highly recommend this series to those who are looking for a good alien romance and a romance and action filled fantasy book. There’s just something about Armentrout’s writing style that will hook you from the first page.
