The Darkest Star by Jennifer L Armentrout – ARC Review


When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is 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…

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the universe of the Lux in this brand new series, featuring beloved characters both new and old.

Review: 4 Stars

If you’ve ever read a novel by Jennifer L Armentrout then you know that she has a skill for creating incredibly hot paranormal love stories. If you haven’t, then you’ve been missing out. The Darkest Star is no exception to that, it’s hot, funny and has a good plot too. I haven’t read the Luz series, and even though this is a spin-off of that series, you don’t have to read it first.

I really liked the characters in this book. There was so much witty banter that I found myself laughing or grinning a lot of the time while reading. Luc was my favorite character. He was rude to Evie when she first met him and that was not at all like what I expected him to be., He was funny and an interesting love interest. Evie was a little more vanilla, but I still enjoyed reading about her.

The plot was pretty good. There was a bit of a mystery and a plot twist, but I totally saw it coming and guessed almost every thing that happened. So I’m a little sorry to say that it was pretty predictable. I did really enjoy the world building and the whole alien story line. Reading this book really made me want to read the Lux series.

Overall I would say that it was a hot YA paranormal romance with a good, but predictable plot and great world building. Although it was predictable I enjoyed the story line and characters enough that it didn’t bother me too bad. I have read several novels by Jennifer L Armentrout and would highly recommend them to fans of romance novels with sexy men in them.

I received a copy from Netgalley, this is my voluntary review.

  2. I started the Lux series a long time ago, but I never got around to finishing the series. I have a vague recollection of who Luc and Evie are, but I definitely think that this could be read as a standalone. I didn’t love where the Lux series went, but I might give The Darkest Star a shot.

    From what I remember of the Lux series, I think you would definitely like it. Daemon is definitely stubborn, mysterious, and hot.
