Week 25 Review: The Burning Shadow

From Goodreads:
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.

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the world of the Lux with this steamy, shocking second installment of the Origin series that will leave readers reeling.

My Review:
This book was so fantastic to read! Evie and Luc are just steamy to read about, and having more time in this world always makes me happy! I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow and develop, because they've waited a long time for this!

Evie has a bit of an identity crisis through most of this book. Because she used to be Nadia, and given the memories of Evie, and then the years living as Evie. Which sucks for her, finding out what she used to like, what she still likes, and what has changed.

If I were to compare this series to the Lux series, I'd say this book is a mix of Opal and Origin. Evie learned more about what she didn't know, like the Arum, and learned more in general. The threat level also jumped by a significant amount in this book!

The ending was a pretty evil cliffhanger! Not an action one, but an information reveal, and it's a doozie of a reveal! In a way, it makes sense, that doesn't mean that it was expected. Adding all this to deal with is just going to be more to read about, though!

Loved reading this book so much, and yeah, can't wait for the next book!
