When Evie goes to a club with her bff, Heidi, she finds herself drawn to a mysterious boy named Luc. She has no idea her conversation with an arrogant and rude stranger will lead her on a journey that will change her life. Who is Luc? Why is he so invested in her? Why does she feel like she may know him?

I love Jennifer Armentrout and this book is no different. I can't wait for the second one to come out. ( )

This didn't work so well for me.
It seemed slow getting going.
Ends ready for next book.

“Hell yeah. Who wouldn’t be? I mean, they’re like God got confused, you know? He already made horses and sheep, and decided, let’s mix that together, and voila-you get a llama,” Kent explained. “Freaking ah-mazing. Have you ever met a llama?”

A funny quote and a lil bit of humor thrown into an action packed, murder filled, lives changing story. For those of you who don’t know, the Darkest Star is a spin-off from Jennifer Armentrouts Lux series.

This story has good action. People go missing, fights are fought, and secrets unfold. There is a lot of information that I didn’t see coming. In one case I suspected someone of something, thinking they were bad, but I was half and half with my guess. Otherwise, I didn’t see a lot of it coming.

At times I did get annoyed with Evie and how she acted with Luc. I wanted her to get over how she felt about him and get to finding out the information I was dying to know.

Overall I really enjoyed the story and give it a 5/5⭐️. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

I will be the first to admit that books about aliens aren't really my jam, but having read this book I might just have to re-evaluate that. I went into this book without having read the Lux series, of which this book and its subsequent works follow after. Now that I have read The Darkest Star, I'm incredibly eager to dive into the Lux world and discover more about our friends from another planet.

I was impressed that the author made it easy to understand the history and relationships between humans and the Luxen without making the reader feel like they missed out on some key info from the original series. Luc was equal parts charming and annoyingly smug (as any good YA love interest is) and Evie, although having some (arguably deserved) pity party moments, didn't come across as a helpless damsel in distress and I admired her fiery personality. Can't wait to read the next one! ( )

That cover with such a mysterious title and amazing hype from other bloggers made me so excited to pick up and read The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Thing is, I didn’t know it was part of this huge vast world the author had previously created. I worried if I would be able to like the story and get into it without knowing anything else. Turns out, there was no reason to worry because I absolutely loved it, and now I a) need the sequel and b) need to read everything else in this Lux world!

I want to start by admiring how well Armentrout positioned this book. It is absolutely open to new readers, while at the same time, I feel like there must be characters that fans of her series recognize since you could tell there were a few names mentioned simply to excite. Yet, the majority of the story introduces this world of the Lux to new readers through a character that should’ve known it all. As it takes place on modern day Earth, there’s no real effort on world-building, which didn’t seem out of place or lacking since the focus of the story relied solely on personal relationships.

Speaking of personal relationships, I LOVED how Armentrout wrote the reveal(s) for one of the characters at the climax of the story. It felt so much more real than so many other YA books where characters simply accept what happens ‘gracefully’ and unrealistically. Here? I could feel my heart ache for almost everyone involved and there was no way I could fault anyone. I know this is a good book because days after finishing it, I could still think about the scene and about what I want to see happen next. It almost makes me want to search out fanfic (which I won’t because I don’t want to spoil the actual series for myself either.)

Pacing was great, build-up was steady. There was one major fault, which I don’t know what to make of. The main antagonist of the story and ultimately the ‘resolution’ to the antagonist. This was such a major letdown and done so quickly and almost sloppily that it felt like an afterthought. I don’t know if this was simply introduced as a way to introduce something that will happen next in the series, or if this was a nod to her previous works. It just didn’t work and felt lackluster. The interpersonal drama would have been more than enough to drive the story through the climax to the resolution.

If you like YA, and you like YA romance, and you like lite or soft sci-fi? The Darkest Star by Jennifer L Armentrout is a MUST READ PICK UP! Hell, if you like even TWO out of the three, I definitely think you’ll enjoy this novel. Just an absolute great character-driven story.
