Happy Book Birthday to Jennifer Armentrout's Shadows

Here at YA Fusion we love a good reason to celebrate and this week gives us a reason to party down. On Tuesday, February 21st, Jennifer Armentrout's Shadows debuts!


I first learned about Jennifer from our shared agent, Kevan Lyon. Kevan spoke very highly of Jennifer and I knew immediately I wanted to read Jennifer's books. This is what Kevan has to say about Jennifer: Jennifer always gives readers the type of story we all love – one that keeps us up far into the night reading – pulse pounding suspense and that sense that you can’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what is going to happen!

Now that is the type of story we all want to read. So, now let's chat with Jennifer.

Hi Jennifer!

Can you tell us a little bit about Shadows?

Shadows occurs before Obsidian, and even though it's a novella, it's almost a full length book that centers around Dawson (Daemon's twin) and Bethany, the girl that Katy sees on the missing person's posters in Obsidian. You get to see the world through three different POVS: Dawson, Daemon, and Bethany, and readers will also get to see Daemon before Obsidian, which is really fun to share.

Who is your favorite character in Shadows?

I'd have to say Dawson. He is so different from Daemon.

Do you have a favorite sentence from Shadows? Can you share it with us?

“You probably should have thought about that before you Lite Brighted her ass.”


How would your favorite character in Shadows answer the following questions?

That would be Dawson, so...


1. Beatles or Rolling Stones? Rolling Stones
2. Novel or Graphic Novel? Graphic Novel
3. Ice cream or Brownies? Ice cream
4. Camping or Hotel? Camping all the way.

Thank you so much for sharing with us Jennifer! Congratulations on your release!
