Lux Series Review by Jennifer L Armentrout

 

Goodreads Synopsis:

 

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.


Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

 

 

Review:

 

I just finished reading this series for the second time. I'm not going to review them individually because I've already read them before but I just wanted to jot down my overall feelings about the series.

 

It had been almost a year since I first read them and I had actually forgotten a lot of the chain of events, besides the big stand out scenes obviously, which surprised me but I guess I've read a lot of other books in a year :P

 

I loved this series just as much if not more the second time! I love Katie and Daemon's relationship how it progresses and grows and their teasing one another is so cute! I loved how the Black's and the Thompson's were like family and would do anything for each other and incorporated Katie into that dynamic (although for some it wasn't as welcome). My favourite thing about this series is that you don't feel like you're reading a story just about aliens as it's more of a supernatural contemporary which incorporates other elements. The light hearted dialogue definitely eases the intensity of some of the situations they find themselves in, especially Daemon's sarcastic comments which will make you LOL!

 

Jennifer L Armentrout is a genius when it comes to writing and developing a story or world that just captivates you from the beginning. I've read a few of her books and loved every one of them and can't wait to read more by her. She is definitely an author that no matter what she writes I will read it :)
