    The Darkest Star

    Seventeen year old Evie Dasher has an ordinary life….well as ordinary as life can be after Earth has been involved in an alien war and people are not what they seem. Are they human, Luxen or something else? On a night out, the club Evie is at is raided and everything changes for her. Swept into a world she thought she new, Evie will have to figure out who her friends and enemies are pretty quick to survive what is coming. The Darkest Star was a slow burn read, meaning that you get to know the characters a little bit more and are reintroduced to Luc and some of the other characters from previous books. Evie is the main protagonist in this book and she is really quite ordinary; ordinary in style, language and interests but I definitely think that is part of her appeal and makes her more believable. Her relationship with Luc is a slow starting one and you see their relationship develop as they spend more time together and truths come out. Luc on the other hand comes across as mysterious, sometimes dark and utterly handsome. He definitely gives Evie a lot to think about. What is also good to note is that JLA has made Luc a really likeable yet often flawed character…he isn’t perfect and that is refreshing when it comes to reading YA novels. He hasn’t always made the right choices and he owns that. This book is action packed with a hint of witty banter and snarky comments throughout and enough of a back-story that you wouldn’t have to have read previous series to understand what is going on. There are also some true teen dramas such as falling in love, bullies and angst which I think added a real life, everyday touch to the story. There isn’t a cliff-hanger per say but you are definitely left with questions that can only be answered in the second book. A must read for YA/NA Paranormal fans.

    The Darkest Star

    Loved the book. Loved Luc. I've always hoped there would be more about him. I loved the mentions of Daemon and Katy, and even Archer/Dee. I love that my Favorite book series is getting more. I only have one thing that bothered me *spoiler warning* and that's the fact that she mentions that April has a "darkness" around her in one of the pictures she took of her, but then never returns to that to explain it. Is she Arum? Is she something else? I dont like loose ends. And I feel like that's a big one.

    Good YA Novel

    The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout Series: Origin Book #1 Publisher: Tor Teen Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Tor Teen for the ebook ARC of The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout in exchange for an honest review. Seventeen year old Evie Dasher gets caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can socialize 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 had only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head … I give this book a rating of 4 stars and I recommend reading it. This is the first book I have read by Jennifer L. Armentrout. It was really good and it kept me wanting to read more. It was a well written YA novel. I can’t wait to read book #2 in the series Origin. #TheDarkestStar #NetGalley

    Same World, New Loves

    “Sometimes the truth is worse than the lie.” It was so much fun being back in this world and getting to revisit some beloved characters and learning more about the Origins – who had always interested me. I knew I would enjoy the story because I already like a lot of the characters – and as a character driven read, half the battle was already won. Getting to see cameos from Daemon, Archer, and some other characters from the Lux series was a real treat. I loved that we really got to know Luc more and see how he’s changed and hardened after the war. I loved seeing his relationship with Evie develop – it was filled with excellent banter and high-class flirting. I really liked Evie as a character as well. She’s resilient and brave, even she she’s scared out of her mind. She was an easy character to get behind and support. Some of the dialogue was so incredibly cheesy and cringey that I had to put the book down for a second. It was so extra and over-the-top, but I also think it’s part of the charm for this kind of story that doesn’t take itself too seriously and is honestly, just a good time. There was a lot of groundwork laid down for future books so I’m excited to see where the series takes us! (And hopefully we’ll get to see some more old favorites again soon.) I received a copy of the book from Tor Teen in exchange for an honest review.

    Loved

    This book was definitely worth the wait. My kid and I had just finished the lux series by this author and were left with the feeling “now what to read” it just so happened this books timing to be released was only a couple months later! The story was well written and it flowed to where once you started you did not want to stop reading. I finished reading in a couple days (work made it to where I unfortunately had to take breaks) and my kid whose in jr high finished it during the school work by reading any available time between classes and after done with work. We would both recommend this book to others and are super excited to read book two once it comes out later this year. This book can be read separately from the lux series but I would recommend them all!
