Shadows (Lux, #0.5) - Jennifer L. Armentrout
I'm really glad I found the Lux Series by JLA. After reading reviews and listening to Val from Stuck In Books, I finally read Obsidian and loved it. I read Shadows to get ready for Onyx and I can't for Onyx.
I can honestly say I cried at the end of Shadows. JLA does an amazing job at describing characters emotions and thoughts. It sort of puts you right there with her characters. I remember Dawson being talked about in Obsidian, but to read what happened. I wish that Dawson were still in the series and I'm hoping some how he makes an appearance. I really liked his character and Bethany's.
