In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.
#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to a new romantic YA science fiction series with The Darkest Star. Set in the beloved world of the Lux, a girl pulled into in a world she doesn't understand finds herself confronted by long buried secrets, a betrayal that could tear her life apart...and Armentrout's most swoonworthy book boyfriend yet.
Seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher knows firsthand the devastating consequences of humanity's war with the aliens. When she's caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen...but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she'd only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head...
Welcome to the Origin series.
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
This science fiction drama picks up four years after the events of Armentrout's Lux series. Aliens known as the Luxen have launched a failed invasion of Earth, and humans have entered into an uneasy, fragile peace with those Luxen who chose integration rather than conflict. When 17-year-old Evie Dasher accompanies a friend to a nightclub where humans and aliens can mingle, she's inadvertently drawn into a terrifying mystery in which she discovers that many aspects of her life are false. The aggravating and oh-so-sexy Luc insinuates himself into her life at every turn, and Evie can't get away from the Luxen, as much as she'd prefer to continue her quiet life as an ordinary high schooler. But she may need Luc if she wants to survive the attentions of a superpowered killer. While this series opener draws heavily on the events and premise of the previous series, it works as an entry point for new readers. Unfortunately, Luc comes across as more annoying than appealing, and the constant string of surprise revelations may test the limits of plausibility. Ages 13 up.
Out of this world amazing!
Amazed all the way to the planet of Lux and back!
You will become obsessed with this book.
The story now continues on with new characters. But now we have a more matured Luc who is reunited once again with Evie. Their love story is to die for!
So much love
My heart can’t handle this!! I needed the next one, so I got it. Now I must wait because, plot twist; there are three more. THREE! Long story short, you need to read the lux series by JLA to fully see this storyline, but it’s standalone enough that you actually don’t need to. She does a wonderful job explaining the backstory without reading it, but I HIGHLY recommend reading obsidian first. All the characters you fell for come back and swoop in to steal your heart all over again. But this, this has twists and turns I didn’t even see coming! This will take you for the ride of your life, and you won’t regret it.
