    Absolutely Loved It!

    Where do I even begin? This book was absolutely wonderful! It definitely sucks you in right away with all the wonderful characters, both new and old, and with the amazing storyline. I just had a feeling about what the main twist was going to be right away and was hoping for it and then it was confirmed and I was super happy 😄 There were still a few twists and turns along the way that surprised me and kept me dying to know where the story would go next. Luc is the best! He's absolutely hilarious and I still love him. He is so smart, strong, funny, and caring. I loved seeing more to him than just the sarcastic, jokester from the past. He has so many more dimensions to him and it was wonderful to see. Evie is amazing as well. She may not always be observant as she says, but she's sweet and very entertaining as well. It was fun being inside her head. Even though there were a few missing, it made me so happy when old characters popped up, especially Daemon, he had me laughing the whole time 🤣 There were a few things that were left unanswered, but I'm assuming there's gotta be another book and those will be answered in that book. The only thing I was disappointed by was not getting anything from Luc's perspective. I was hoping for at least a chapter in his head. Other than that The Darkest Star was amazing and I'm already dying for more!

    Luc, Luc, Luc

    I love Luc and Evie. I loved the Lux series and I had already loved Luc but this book surpassed that one and made me fall for Luc all over again.

    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

    5 Stars Review by Sasha Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Evie Dasher’s entire world changed when she decided to walk into the club Foretoken one night. She knew that this club was a place where people who didn’t fit in could attend. This was a safe place for any Luxen, a new alien species that had invaded earth a couple years ago. They could come to blow off some steam and not be afraid of getting taken away. Evie had thought that it would be a night filled with dancing and laughing with her best friend and meeting her best friend’s crush. What she didn’t expect was for a devastatingly handsome but outrageously rude guy named Luc to declare that she shouldn’t be there. From her first encounter with Luc, the world around her decides to get turned upside down. Suddenly Evie finds that the world she has come to know, and the life that she had been told was hers, wasn’t what it seemed to be. There is nothing that Evie would like more than to forget about that night at Foretoken, but Luc seems to be popping up everywhere she goes. He insults her when they first meet, leaves her with nothing but a couple lines of cryptic dialogue and then begins appearing all around her like some guardian angel. Despite the annoyance that Luc brings into her life, Evie finds herself drawn to him. He holds the answers to the questions that she begins searching for. The closer she gets to Luc, the more she finds herself wondering who she can trust and who is actually the person they say there are. God, I loved this book. It was the perfect young adult novel for any reader who is looking for something similar to the Divergent series. The witty banter between all the characters, especially Luc and Evie, gives the story that youthful tone and vibe. The back and forth nature between Luc and Evie is too funny and it makes the slow burn of their relationship almost bearable. Evie stands up and fights for herself, which gives the young girls reading this another great character to look up to. The fact that it’s a spin-off of another one of Armentrout’s popular series and doesn’t rely on the reader having extensive knowledge of the previous series is a comfort to new readers who are picking up the new series. I’m definitely a fan of Armentrout’s writing after reading this book. I can’t wait to get my hands no only on the next book in this series but also her other books. Between the dramatic discoveries and the slow burn between Luc and Evie, I was on the edge of my seat reading this novel.
