#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to this new series with a girl caught up in a world she doesn’t understand, secrets long buried, 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…

I couldn’t read this book with anyone but Jamsu! The Lux world is something like our thing, so buddy reading another book in this universe was a sure thing!
Luc is one of my favorites from the previous books and i really wanted to read his story. This book showed me a different Luc from what I saw previously. He’s still his arrogant and confident self, but Evie brings out a softer, caring side of him.
Evie’s background story is complicated. There are too many dark spots in her past, a fact that hinted at the big revelation we get later in the book. Her attraction to Luc is something she didn’t see coming!
There’s definitely connection between them, but not like Daemon and Hunter have with their girls! I loved seeing Daemon making an appearance, but I want to find out what’s going on with everyone else as well.
Overall, “The Darkest Star”, is a really good book, albeit being predictable at times! I’m looking forward to more books in the Lux Universe!!
