#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to a new romantic YA science fiction series with The Darkest Star.

In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.

Set in the beloved world of the Lux, a girl pulled into in a world she doesn't understand finds herself confronted by long buried secrets, 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...

Welcome to the Origin series.

    My heart can’t handle this!! I needed the next one, so I got it. Now I must wait because, plot twist; there are three more. THREE! Long story short, you need to read the lux series by JLA to fully see this storyline, but it’s standalone enough that you actually don’t need to. She does a wonderful job explaining the backstory without reading it, but I HIGHLY recommend reading obsidian first. All the characters you fell for come back and swoop in to steal your heart all over again. But this, this has twists and turns I didn’t even see coming! This will take you for the ride of your life, and you won’t regret it.

    I absolutely love this series.. I love Luc but I am so saddened by what happened to Micah.. I just can’t wait until the next book in this series comes out..
  • More of a starter novel than a spin-off

    Worth the read especially if you enjoyed The Lux series by the same author. And while this book was predictable and imperfect (does contain plot holes and it feels like something's missing), "The Darkest Star" was still a fun and entertaining read.
  • Great

    Spoil alert review! So I loved the book and I’m so happy we’re finally getting Luc’s love story BUT you can definitely see similarities between this book and daemon and Katy’s story. Like when they made out and everything was crackling but she didn’t care same with Katy, when Luc was fighting and pulled the trees out same with daemon, when Luc told evie to run but she didn’t and saved him same with daemon and Katy. That’s the only thing that kinda of was just like “hmm alrighty” it’s not a bad thing and I still love the book and can not wait for the second book. PLEASE MAKE A SECOND BOOK.
