The Darkest Star
#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.
In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.
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.
I have been provided with a copy of The Darkest Star through NetGalley for an impartial review. This is the first book in the brand new Origin series and it takes us back to the world of Luxen and Origins. I absolutely loved this book and I was so excited when I heard that it was going to be about Luc who we had previously met in the Lux series. I just loved getting to reenter this world and see some familiar characters that I have just missed since the Lux series ended. I just couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
Just when you think you know the story another twist that keeps you hooked. Loved every bit of it!!!!
Out of this world amazing!
Amazed all the way to the planet of Lux and back!
