“Ero davvero curiosa di leggere la storia del fratello gemello di Daemon, Dawson. Già in “Obsidian” ho trovato intriganti gli accenni a lui ed alla sua storia e volevo assolutamente saperne di più.
Dawson è molto diverso da Daemon, è più socievole, più “integrato” con il mondo degli umani e a differenza del fratello, sorride parecchio!
Una delle cose di cui ero più curiosa di leggere era proprio il rapporto tra i due fratelli, che mi è piaciuto tantissimo nella sua semplicità e normalità. Sono molto complici, si prendono in giro, si vede che si vogliono davvero bene e che si proteggono l'un l'altro.
Bellissimo anche il rapporto che Dawson ha con Dee, i due sono legatissimi.
Ho apprezzato anche il personaggio di Bethany. Sensatamente e coerentemente non è immune al fascino di Dawson e si comporta di conseguenza, senza bisogno di dover mascherare ciò che prova. Trovo i suoi comportamenti molto realistici.
La storia d'amore appassiona, è carinissima e dolce. È anche giustamente differente da quella di Daemon e Katy. Praticamente le ragazze di cui si innamorano e il tipo di relazioni che instaurano rispecchiano il carattere dei due fratelli.
Quanto avrei voluto e quanto mi piacerebbe poter leggere di loro tutti insieme!
Anche se avendo letto “Obsidian” si conosce già il finale di questo prequel, ciò non lo rende meno toccante ed emozionante. La scena con Daemon e Dee è assolutamente commovente.
L'ho letto tutto d'un fiato, lettura sempre piacevolissima, scorrevolissima, non mi ha mai deluso...e ora aspetto con ansia “Onyx”!

“Normally the novellas released as in-between parts of a series are really short, so I was pleasantly surprised by how long this was! I seriously paid $3.99 for a "novella" once that was literally 20 pages, so when this one kept going on and on I felt like I had won the lottery.
I was so excited to get to know more about Dawson, Bethany, and their relationship before all the crap hit the fan. Dawson was so sweet and adorable, the complete polar opposite of his twin brother Daemon. It also made it so much sadder seeing how he was before and knowing how he is after, when he's an empty shell haunted by all he's been through. Bethany was actually totally different than expected. Now I don't know if it was just me being stupid but I thought Bethany was a blonde?? At least that's how I always pictured her, with pin straight blonde hair and kind of mousy. I never felt like I knew Bethany from reading the other books. Dawson was so in love with her but she just seemed so blah. I enjoyed getting her POV and seeing that she was just as much in love with Dawson as he was with her.
Overall, this was a great addition to the Lux Series and I'm hoping there are some more novellas to come!! Maybe one about the Thompson siblings? ”

He lives off colony with his sister Dee and his brother Daemon. They are triplets. Luxen live here among humans with the knowledge of the government as long as they keep a low profile. There are also Arum who hunt the Luxen and try to take their power.

“ I read Obsidian before I started this short story and I'm glad I did as I felt this neatly tied up the blanks from the first book.
Although this is classified as a short story I did not find that it lacked any story building or did not allow us to get to know that characters. It was a full story and one that has my interest sparked more by this series and this author. ”
“I read this "after" Obsidian and wished it was before, however, it didn't ruin anything for me. This was just as good as Obsidian, except for MUCH shorter. :) Either way, I am glad I read this and recommend that you read it "before" you do Obsidian or any of the other books. However, you can read it at anytime and still be glad you read it. ”Lettee wrote this review Monday, February 18, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I love Jennifer's writing style and the Lux series is my favorite. It was good to see the story before the series began, and meet Dawson the missing brother in the rest of the series. It explained why Daemon and Dee are the way they are in the series as well.”Veray C wrote this review Monday, November 26, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
